Mother’s Day

On this Mother’s Day, I planned to highlight the swearing.

It’s weird, why people use a woman for abusing others? Why do we use the profanity words which contains “mother” and “sister” words? We hear no one using “father” or “brother” word.
The more annoying thing is when someone is protecting a girl from other men, they use the same “motherfucker, sister fucker ” language. Few men may not use this. But most of the men do this while protecting a girl. It’s good you are protecting her from bad people but are you respecting other women by using such language?

On the first place, using an abusive word shall not be entertained.  Secondly, if you use it to let your anger out, then it is better to abuse someone directly.  Mentioning mother and sister does not make sense. Some people believe using mothers and sisters while arguing will hurt the opposition emotionally. Almost in all languages same thing is being carried out. I haven’t come across any language yet which does not use these words. I will be happy to know if there is any language which does not include such words.

We celebrate Women’s day. We celebrate Mothers’ day. But, why can’t one stop using invective words/slangs?

In my opinion,  we should neither use female nor male slangs for showing our anger or frustration. It is better to not bring up family relations or friends in between any argument.

    I’ve never thought about this before! Great points!!

  2. I don’t understand why women bad language is used either. You are correct when saying there isn’t a word we use for father or brother. Wish we could just stop insulting each other altogether.

  3. You brought up a very good point. I never hear swears regarding men or male relatives. I guess really because woman are seen as the weaker sex and we don’t have the equal presence in the world as men. However, men wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for us. We are the ones who can have children. Very good post!

  4. I did not grow up around the abusive language, but it is commonly heard now. Even in the grocery store, I hear words that are just awful. I wish people could control their language in public. Abusive words make me cringe no matter who they are directed at.

  5. I’ve never really thought about this before now but it is a good point. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I always avoid to use swear words. Everyone should try that! And for us every day is Mother’s Day πŸ™‚

  7. Wow! You shared such a wonderful story! Thank you so much for this. I learned a lot of things from this article.

    You made a very good point. These kinds of invectives are degrading for a woman. Whoever “invented” that word must not have had a happy childhood. Wish this would stop! I know it is outrageous, but saying that word should be penalized – like $1 for every time it is uttered. Hah! All countries would be rich!

  9. Michael David Oyco says:

    Isnt it better to not use any bad words period? Just for me. We should be training changing those habits.

  10. Thanks for this great post and hopefully it will resonate in others the same way it does to me. I always try to stay away from people who use that type of language but now I feel like telling them not to do so.

  11. Oh this is lovely, you made some really amazing points. What an insightful article, thank you for sharing!

  12. Junell DuBois says:

    Interesting points. I had never thought of how we use women with swear words.

    1. Thats a good question! Why is this the case!? And now that I think abut it, its true in many other languages as well. It shows a widespread disrespect of females

  13. Agree with you totally!!!!!!! Plus I just pinned your post image so that everyone can read.You got great skills on editing as well.Happy blogging!

  14. Let me share you my story. I’ve grow up with rude and sarcastic people and they using profanity words as their expression yah others they offend when they heard about these bad words but for me it’s like nothing although it’s not okay to grow up with this kind of culture I’ve tried to avoid saying bad words but it’s really hard but I do respect people and I know my limit especially when In other places I hope you get my point πŸ™‚

    Thanks for sharing your insights. Something worth to consider.

  16. I hate using swear words in general but I really hate these particular swear ones. They are so wrong and annoying.

  17. Perhaps it’s a generational thing but few if any of my friends typically use the word motha…

  18. I never really thought about all of this. I can see that it’s wholly inappropriate people would use this kind of language. It really is awful.

  19. I never thought about this before. But, I don’t say motherfucker a lot. I say shit and fuck a lot.

    I often think of it but people may do it unconsciously or they might find it fun. Your post is directly out of my mind.

  21. My thought too! Not only in English, ever other language has abusive words mostly on women.

  22. It’s a shame that there are so many abuses based on women. We should consciously avoid using them.

  23. Elucidate Facts says:

    Using bad words in an argument is point less. If you really care about the topic you are arguing with a person bring only relevant points to solve the problem. Bad words won’t help you to solve it. Thanks for writingπŸ‘

  24. You make a great point. I honestly never thought about the fact that we don’t say things like father fucker. Interesting post.

  25. Interesting. I’ve noticed theses day people will make up their own slang “bad words” too.
