Not only that but didn't she have to call 3 times in order to get someone to pickup? I'd be pissed off as well if it took 3 calls to get a 911 operator to pick up the phone.

Yes Madison, I understand that you believe the words to be socially unacceptable. I'm not going to accept "they're socially unacceptable because they're socially unacceptable" because I can't think of a reason why we shouldn't say those words. Yes, using those words in an intentionally derogatory manner (e.g. "poopy you!") is just as wrong as telling someone "you're ugly and you smell bad", and should be discouraged; however, I see absolutely no harm in using them as an expletive out of frustration (upon stubbing your toe), in condemnation of a non-human ("poopy this weather", "poopy these mosquitoes"), or to add emphasis to a statement ("I feel pooping terrible for breaking your computer", "this steak is pooping amazing!"). Oh, and also using them in a discussion about profanity, such as this one. :-D

Edit: Also:

Dude, we let it slide sometimes but chill on the asterisk curse words.

Also, that girl isn't young at all. She's 17, most likely driving, possibly having sex, and less than a year away from being able to legally perform 95% of adult functions. If she was 13 or younger she might be considered young, but by that time profanity is a staple among her peers' vocabulary. Most kids right now learn to swear around age 9 and begin using it regularly by the end of junior high. Where do they learn it from? Older siblings, their friends' older siblings, music, TV, etc....but they're only encouraged to use it because it's taboo. It's like teenage drinking, a lot of the driving force behind that is a feeling of rebellion against social norms. It's natural, and it's been happening in different forms since society began, it's just that it's frivolous enough to be bumped by political, cultural, and economic rebellions in history books.

Yeah, sorry, it's tough to hold a debate about profanity without using examples or sounding ridiculous. Looks like it's the latter from now on. :-b
