Where in the USA Is Cussing Most Widely Accepted?
In this poll from YouGov, it looks like Texas and the South are the least likely to use profanity.
From the report, 63 percent of Southerners and 59 percent of Midwesterners reject profanity. Meanwhile, over half the people in the Northeast say that profanity can be "descriptive and add something to a conversation." If you've ever been to New York City, that isn't hard to believe.
In the west, people were split 50-50 on swearing and whether it belongs in a conversation. The trends seem to follow Red and Blue state lines, with Red tending to believe cussing is a bad thing, and blue (ironically) finding blue language isn't as bad.
So, what do you think? Is cussing a part of your everyday language? Do you use it sparingly or do swear like a sailor? Is there ANY time that swearing is appropriate?
