what is a curse word? And how does a word go from being a regular word to being a curse word? And.. who maintains the list? ... and.. do curse words have context?.. or are they just "bad" no matter how they are used? Are words that describe sexual organs or the sex act curse words too? What is meant by the "Curse" part? Does it have something to do with the Bible? If so, where in the Bible does it say that the F-word is forbidden.? ... or.. or.. forget all of that.. . Just answer this one: Is the F-word considered a bad word because it refers to the sex act? What exactly is vulgar about the F-word?.. or the sex act?.. and what about when the F-word is not being used to reference the sex act.. ? does context matter at all?
