become so prevalent. When I was young in the UK I never ever heard a woman swear. Now I hear young girls shouting f this and f that across the street to each other.
I was still at school when a male neighbour of ours was fined 10 shillings in the local court for swearing in the street.
I was shocked when I returned to the UK to find that the f and sometimes the c word are on TV in mags and newspapers practically every day.
Is it a sign of the times?
