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.
