The Fallacy of Euphemisms
Ok, I'm been mulling over this in my head for while and still can't come to a conclusion. Everyone knows what curses and swear words are, but what about euphemisms, words used to make other terms (in this case swear words) sound less offensive? Some people, in particular my old Spanish teacher, would say "sugar", instead of...you know. Basically my question is, if someone starts using a multitude of euphemisms like "bullspit" or "sugar" or "motherfather" in lieu of curse words, does the heavily implied frustration/anger/pain defeat the purpose of using "fake curses" in particular especially since everyone knows what you're trying to say?
