To Swear or Not To Swear

"In a business meeting that you might have in the South or in the Midwest there in Iowa, you would not have people who would just throw the 'f bomb' and use gratuitous profanity in a professional setting," he explained. "In New York, not only do the men do it, but the women do it! And you just are looking around, saying, 'My gosh, this is worse than lockerroom talk.'"
"This would be considered totally inappropriate to say these things in front of a woman," he added. "And for a woman to say them in a professional setting, we would only assume that this is a very - as we would say in the South, that's just trashy."
So sayeth Mike Huckabee on a radio show.
Quite frankly, although I would not vote for him, nor do I think I will have to, I think he is right.  I am not moralizing here; I can make a sailor blush on occasion.  But I don't like it when those words come out of my mouth, even when I am just with a close friend.   So I try not to.  I do think it is demeaning and not at all lady like.  It is also laziness.
Surely I can come  up with something more creative.  Like the names of German cities.   What in the Frankenau is that?  Darmstadt, he took the last of the haggis.  That Butzow Budingen is such a gossip, bless her heart.  Bonus: I can say them with the proper accent!
It's just trashy
