There is a reason why Americans are cursing now more than ever. People are swearing everywhere. There was a study done in San Diego that shows this trend in cursing is not actually sue to a lack of morals in people. It is due to the growth of individualism. People are able to express themselves more freely now and this has lead to more swearing.
- People are cursing more now than ever
- Cursing is on the increase due to growth of individualism
- Increased cursing may indicate that there is less of a taboo about it
“A new study by San Diego State University psychologist Jean M. Twenge suggests that this increasing coarseness is not necessarily due to a decline in morals or manners, but rather to the growth of individualism.”
