There are no such things as "Bad Words".

They don't exist, never have, never will.  Its people who "think"
certain words are bad, and often these "opinions" of what are or are
not bad aren't universally accepted.  What is considered a bad word in
one part of the world is just fine in another, and vice versa.

Certain words only have the power to offend because people "let them"
have that kind of power.  If you choose not to let certain words have
that kind of power over you then they'll just become harmless words.
Words cannot hurt you unless you let them.  Don't let them hurt you by
refusing to acknowledge that they have the power to do so.  If you do
that nothing anyone can say will faze you ever again.

And, if someone complains about you using those words just tell them,
"Bad words really don't exist, its just all in your head."

politics, but it is not the path to knowledge, and there is no place
for it in the endeavor of science. " ~ Carl Sagan
