Profanity is another aspect of normal daily life where double standards can be seen: when men curse, it I funny or rough. When women to it, it’s unladylike or stupid. Swearing, using words decided offensive, is ugly and trashy if you’re a female.
Women are routinely told to hold themselves back and pay concern to their language. Global sexism is more offensive than a swear word.
A few years ago, a psychology professor at England’s Keel University named Richard Stephens led a study that found swearing can help with pain relief. “Swearing is such a common response to pain that there has to be an underlying reason why we do it,” he says.
If this is the case, women and girls should restrain from this relief because it isn’t pretty and ladylike?
If you’re a woman who swears, too, then you know what I’m talking about. Lots of people will assume you only swear because you think it makes you look cool or because your vocabulary is lacking. Others will automatically deem you unprofessional or disrespectful, even if you abstain from swearing in front of children or at work. On top of that, you’ll be told with the shocking frequency that being a woman and loving to swear ought to be mutually exclusive.
People come up assumptions with regards to women using curse words such as- they’re trying to be like men, trying to ‘fit in’, that women only swear to get attention, that we swear because we have a poor vocabulary (oh please!).
Some people will continue to believe that swear words are unladylike, other will claim that they indicate a lack of education or intellect. Well, who gives a flying f**k?
