Basicly, each so called dirty word gains it's dirty word status because at some point in time religious believers claimed that they were dirty mostly because they blasphemed their god or they thought the words definition was offensive or repulsive. Well, we in the atheist community don't believe in god or religion so is it rational for us atheists to totally avoid these words like religious people do??? Should we use them but not in mixed company in fear of offending anyone??? Or should we go around spewing them whenever we feel the need???
I ask this because many times when talking to fellow atheists, I noticed or I got a feeling that they were intentionally not using them for whatever reason. I use them but usually when expressing emotions and not all the time.
What do you think, are dirty words dirty to an atheist???
