Read my message, I asked a question, I didn't make a statement. I never said that I would use the word in front of children. But since you mention it women are fully formed beings with mouths of their own and if they find swearing offensive, then they have the ability to speak up. Anyone that know me will know that I am mischievous but ultimately kind and respectful. I moderate my language on an individual to individual basis, rather than for an amorphous group. If you find the word **** offensive, then by all means say so and I won't use it around you. I deliberately used the full word because I think it is intellectual cowardice to spell it c*nt.
