My 2 year old has started swearing. Yes I know, I can practically see the look on your face now as you read this. But before you judge me, can I just say that it's really not my fault, I lay that blame firmly at the feet of my husband who uses the phrase "Bloody" or "Bloody Hell," more than he realises.

Recently, I found myself involved as a "Twitter expert" in a "radio debate" about swearing on social media. It went so well that they missed out publishing that week's show podcast and I said "sir" live on air, which while it isn't a swear word, is a feature of my speech that really annoys me that I'm trying to eliminate.

Adam Croft | Posted 16.06.2013 | UK Lifestyle

I'll level with you: I'm on the fence somewhat. I'm very much of a mind that gratuitous swearing is best avoided. That's why it's gratuitous. Whilst I'm being honest, I may as well throw in that I spend a lot of time in pubs. Gratuitous swearing is rife in many pubs, which I'm sure will not be particularly shocking news to you.

Class doesn't need to get a megaphone walking the streets screaming "hey look everyone, I'm classy." No. Class speaks all by itself. That is why I was a bit shocked by Beyonce's new song Bow Down.

Now for as long as I can remember sticking your middle finger up to anyone was a straight up insult and went hand in hand with strong verbal abuse.
