    Default Re: Men swearing in front of women

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

    Default Men swearing in front of women

    Brother swears in front of mum he says "oh sorry mum"

    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".

    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.
