Should Mumsnet forum users be allowed to Swear!

No offence I enjoy reading the discussions on this board but why do mums really feel the need to swear in their posts! What kind of example are we setting as mums if we can't control the use of our tongues and use language that is obscene.

Mumsnet - why is it not your policy to remove swear words from posts? saying we are all adults doesn't excuse the use of foul language! I am sure I cannot be the only mumsnet user who doesn't want to read swear words every five seconds. It makes me close a thread and stop reading what otherwise could be an interesting read.

All I can say is no wonder every time I go the playground with my kids I hear young children using foul language when parents can't even control their tongues anymore! Unfortunately I agree the world is full of people who swear but as mums should we not take the lead in setting a good example for the next generation???

Fuck no! We're all cunts with boundary issues.

BigGreenOlives Sat 23-Jul-16 18:56:53

As an adult you are free to either swear or not swear...

Oh you all beat me to it! Motherfuckers.

I wasn't aware I was supposed to be setting an example on an anonymous parenting site that my kids don't read confused

If you can't bear to read swear words then go to the other site where they delete anything that sensitive eyes can't handle.

Oh fuck that. Swearing in the written word is so different to swearing out loud. Think of all the great works of fiction- full of swear words!

And if it doesn't have any swear words in it, what text wouldn't be better for the inclusion of the odd 'cuntweasle'?

AuntieStella Sat 23-Jul-16 18:57:05

We're not setting an example here.

We're using a chat site that permits swearing in any way we want to (within talk guidelines, of course).

If you want a non-sweary site, I believe there are plenty of others available.

No need to change this one.

You are on the wrong forum Hun.

NetMums is that way >>>>>>>>

Solasum Sat 23-Jul-16 18:57:14

Try www.netmums.com

ShtoppenDerFloppen Sat 23-Jul-16 18:57:21

Yvaine you took the words right out of my mouth.

OP, if you want censored posts (and sparkly ones with tickers, too) then Netmums is just down the hall on your right.

Don't let the door hit you in the area on the way out.

I don't type with my tongue.

"Unfortunately I agree the world is full of people who swear but as mums should we not take the lead in setting a good example for the next generation???"

I do that at the times I'm not on MN.

HoneyDragon Sat 23-Jul-16 18:58:15

Where the hell else can parents boggle at what wee bastards children are,if not here?

Tigger365 Sat 23-Jul-16 18:58:16

Netmums - damn you autocorrect

heehaaw Sat 23-Jul-16 18:59:03

Christ on a bicycle, the thought of saying 50% of the things I say on here to anyone in real life, let alone to DC, is fucking insane!

Misnomer Sat 23-Jul-16 18:59:16

We are not all mums. We are not all female. We are not here to set an example to our children. HTH.

PortiaCastis Sat 23-Jul-16 18:59:17

We're all bastard fuckers and the funniest thing on here this week was about wanking. Bugger that was cunting hilarious

PacificDogwod Sat 23-Jul-16 18:59:18

Fucking, yes!

You are not actually going all 'won't anyone think of the children?', Op, while clutching your pearls and/or twinset, are you?
