I've had it from older men and women. I find it odd. I always tell them they have nothing to apoligise for.

Men swearing in front of women
My Dad , my brother , a lot of clients - Dad was very strict about anyone swearing in front of mum or us kids, he thinks its a respect thing i suppose - Even now if my
Brother swears in front of mum he says "oh sorry mum"
DH and I swear occasionally, never in front of DS , I've had to ask my BIL not to swear so much in front of DS

I've had it happen and I don't really like it.
I think it means they assume I'm delicate and need to be treated as such.
I'm not, and anyone on my FB will know I love to say the c-word quite regularly. I dislike the idea of men thinking that women shouldn't have their poor precious ears tarnished by swear words either. I just find it sexist.

I'm with you, SassyMummy.
"There's two ways to dehumanise someone: By dismissing them, and by idolising them".
I do not wish to be on a pedestal like a pretty ballerina figurine, thank you muchly. F*** that. :P

LOL Yeah I never really know how to feel about it when it happens. Bit old fashion I think. Its kinda funny they think I need to be sheltered from swearing. Im pretty bad mouthed at times too so its not like I have never heard them or used them

It also just makes me feel like I am expected to dislike swearing, so therefore because I do not, I should be embarrassed or ashamed because I swear myself.
I don't really like that expectation. I don't mind if people think I'm not a swearer and then am shocked when I do (because I'm quite good with manners, until I know you well... lol) though. I actually find it funny.
