According to the built-in dictionary on Apple computers:Profanity | prəˈfanədē | noun (plural profanities) is blasphemous or obscene language: an outburst of profanity. a swear word; an oath. irreligious or irreverent behavior. The word originated in the mid-16th century, but curses have likely been part of human speech since the beginning of human speech. Whomever first stubbed their toe on a rock likely muttered or screamed out something while in pain. But who decided which words were profane and which weren’t? I don’t know. I know there are words that can’t be said on television or the radio. WARNING: the rest of this post contains f**king profanity.
