New Study Says We Drop A Lot Of F-Bombs!

The word Censored

It’s not something I’m proud of. My mom didn’t raise me this way, but when I’m not on the air and I’m not around my kids, I have a tendency to talk like a sailor. By that, I mean that I curse quite a bit. But according to a new study, I’m not the only one.

Nearly one-third of all U.S. men say the f-word at least a few times a week, according to an AP-Ipsos poll. And while 75 percent of women say foul language offends them, 23 percent of the ladies also drop the f-bomb every week. Among both genders, 64 percent say it’s a part of their vocabulary, with 8 percent confessing they say it several times a day and 15 percent reserving it for use only a few times a year.

So the question begs to be answered: If so many of us are offended by it, why do we use those words?

I mean, I believe that certain words fit certain situations, but sometimes those words get completely overused. Are you one of the people who drop f-bombs often? Have you ever tried to stop?
