  •  Reflection of Society (4.00)
    It seems to me that this is a reflection of the society we live in. In Japan, which is one of the "politest" societies I have visited, people are very polite and deferential to status. All cab drivers I encountered in a recent trip to Japan were all dressed in uniforms, wore caps, and white gloves, and were unfailingly polite. Same with people at the Marriott where I stayed. These are people I did not know and had only one or two transactional meetings with.

    America is a more open society where other's status does not matter and there is rarely the need to be deferential. Hence we are less polite and more "earthy" in our daily conversations.

    Having said that, I think on this forum we tend to use cusswords for both genders with equal opportunity, no? I would venture that "pussy" and "dick" are used with similar frequency.

    •  yeah but Japanese society (none)
      seems to be into stranger porn, imho.  I think they repress more.
