    Swearing.

    Do Russian teenagers use "bad" words as casually as American teenagers seem to?

    What do you consider 'bad' words?

    In which country do you think kids don't use bad words casually? It's part of being a kid (or childlike).

    I personally would never talk to my parents like some of my American friends do...I don't really know how much "bad" language russian teenagers use, but it's definitely not as much as American teenagers.

    My definition of "bad" words:

    You know those few 4 letter words that are commonly used in American movies, such as F***, S***, and others, some being worse than others.

    It's appalling to me how F*** can substitute almost any noun or verb in the English language.

    Ok, but how would you know how the equivalent of f**k, c*nt, sh*t etc. translate into other languages? In Dutch, we have 'kut', 'sh*t', 'godverdomme', 'kanker', 'klote' etc. (first three used as interjections, last two as 'prefixes' to nouns and adjectives) These are all considered offensive, but as they're use frequently, I'm not that shocked by them. When Ozzy uses 'f**k' at every opportunity, how can you take it seriously? Are Americans seriously offended every time he says the 'f word'?

    Edit: now you can see what's under the @@@@.

    It's not offending, but it's irritating when they can't use any other words, because they don't know any others.

    Not to mention any adjective or adverb.
