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.
