May be it's a long time for the women in india get the rights as the men.you won't swear,you are right,he is right too.society is wrong.You are in a pitiful period.and i hope indian get better day by day.
Hi Chaobo! It is a paradox of modern India that women wield power and hold positions at the topmost levels, yet large sections of women are among the most underprivileged.

My discussion in the topic above is pertaining to women worldwide and not just India. I want to know, how many women swear and in what kind of situations. What do men think of women who swear? Do women enjoy using profane language? Why is it acceptable to all when a man uses swear words?

Not unless we mean it.

There are situations in which it is inappropriate for anyone, man or woman, to swear.

Apart from those, I see no difference between men and women swearing. I know some people think it is 'unladylike' but that is quite an old-fashioned attitude these days. A lot of us women swear. A lot of it depends on context and who you are with. I swear a lot with some people (my friends, young family members and some work colleagues) and not at all with others (my parents, people I have just met, and people I know are offended by it).

I can't understand why you sware with your friend colleagues,parents~~~~and so on.In such a case,I'd like to cheat and talk big

haha~~~~.May be swaring only fit in when people say "i love you" to the other.
I swear... A LOT. But, as Nona said, only in situations when it's acceptable.

I think swearing is seen, not unjustifiably, as trying to act "rough and tough" - something that is considered to be "masculine". Therefore, swearing is seen as unfeminine.

Men in general see women as frail, gentle, serene people - I think. It doesn't suit their imagined image of a "lady" when they hear swearwords passing women's lips. Or it might be seen as a challenge to their masculinity.

What say, all?
