They're just words. I think sometimes people place too much importance on them. They're just words.
I do try to teach my children correctly, and I believe they know not to swear, but they (my children anyway) tend to put a lot of stock into what the "older" (cool) kids say and do.
Maybe its just a pet peeve of mine, but one of the benefits (to me) of moving from a position of plumbing in the field to project managing/estimating in the office, was the people I got to deal with on a daily basis (architects, engineers, and other project managers). For the most part, they have a bit more class, and use a lot less vulgarity.
