I was hoping for more vulgarity than that! I am curious how they determined that men swear "more offensively" than women. Offense is a very subjective thing to quantify. I have always found it interesting how it is the language and not the idea behind the language that is found to be offensive. I find the Dave Matthews Band offensive but I am not going to flip out if it is played in front of my child (bad example, I don't have children). In some ways swearing can be the most effective form of communication. Given the utilitarian nature of some swear words it would be a shame for them to go unused. The word Fuck is like the English languages version of a Swiss Army Knife. It can be a noun, a verb, an adjective. It can express joy, anger, sorrow, surprise...It's like the word Smurf only it still has the potential added bonus of shock value.
