I’m not a prude, but I think a lot of people would be surprised to hear me curse. For some reason, I come across as socially conservative, especially in regard to colorful words. I’m certainly not opposed to them; in fact, I think there are times when they are very useful, but there are other times when they are not appropriate.
My viewpoint is not informed by any specific religious dogma. I simply have respect for the power of curse words, and I don’t like to dilute that power through overuse.
Unlike just about everyone on reality television, evidently.
