Another example, in the US, cunt is a pretty offensive and abrasive word. In the UK and Australia it's not as strong of a word.

Oh, really? I didn't think you even say it. It's more of a British thing to me. The word "pussy" is more used in the US in that sense, isn't it?

I always found swear words to be strange, considering that they are just words. I still don't even have a theory to how these words came about anyways, it's just one of those things when it comes to culture I guess. Still, I'm not one to use them, unless I'm around friends my age or something makes me very very angry. I guess they are just words that are reserved for strong expression, but I'm not sure.

Sometimes I can't help but curse at times, especially when I feel frustrated.  i once said "damn it" while texting with somebody because something didn't push through.  I was told not to curse as it is bad.  Actually, I had to use the f-word once because someone deserves to be called one, but I was warned not to curse. I just find it difficult to control my emotions, especially with people who put my in a bad light, and as a result I just had to curse as if express my anger.  Rather than shout or raise my voice, I simply curse.  But in all honesty, I really hate swearing because it makes me someone I don't even recognize.  It's like trying to avoid getting into that situation unless something snaps inside of you and you have lost your control.
