Crude language controversy

Madi Dobbs, Contributing Entertainment Editor

To swear or not to swear? Some are comfortable, some are not and some just drop F’bomb’s on a regular basis that it’s borderline offensive.
Nowadays, many students have a problem with their use of language. When interviewed, 10 out of 12 teachers agreed that the student’s language has gotten worse over time and many have stated the students have no filter of the mouth.
“My students are very respectful around me; however, I have called out students I hear using inappropriate language in the hallway and they will usually immediately apologize,” stated Mrs. Galloy, a Junior English teacher.
Who is too blame for this? Parental influence, peer pressure, or society? Society as a whole seemed to become more lax with standards of language, because what seemed to be offensive is now the new normal. Which makes many teens not see the importance of not swearing.

On television, foul language has been forbidden or needed to be beeped out. However, as time goes, you start to see that on basic television certain words are no longer forbidden. Also on social media there is no filter for the language. So therefore, there is no stopping people from hearing and seeing certain foul words, because the more you hear it and see it, the more it becomes normal.

There are many ways to prevent the foul language from getting worse, one way is by adults stepping in and making a bigger deal out of it when they hear it. This will help manyteenagers realize what they are saying isn’t appropriate.
Finally, another way to help stop this would be making a bigger punishment for the students at school, this would help the students think about what they are saying before they say it. In conclusion, unless society put a bigger emphasis on clean language, then children and teens have no reason or examples to change the way that they speak.
