&*@#! language on the rise

&*@#! language on the rise – Teachers, students say swearing is getting worse.

My mom can probably back this story up, she sees behavior in her kindergarten kids now that used to be only in higher grades. I have to disagree with parts of this article. “Sucks” is not a swear word. Sure, it’s not the best English but it’s hardly at the same level as the classic four letter words. I’m of the option that swearing has it’s place. Sometimes you just really can’t express yourself any other way. But use those types of words too much and they loose their effectiveness.
