Who’s Up for Another Question?

Hello Everyone!

It’s Monday! Are you ready for another Link-UP?

If this is your first time seeing this, first.. let me say, “I’m glad you’re here.”

LAURA’S LINK-UP is something that helps me connect with all of you, as well as you with others. Two Monday’s of each month, I will post a thought-provoking question. Sometimes, the question just sits there. That’s ok. But, usually…there’s always some brave soul out there that can’t resist…and starts up a conversation with their most excellent answer. 🙂 Thanks to all of you who have kept this going. The more comments posted, the more connections made. With your comment, you are asked to leave a link to your blog for others to LINK-UP to.  And so, now that you know…I hope you keep reading and stick around long enough to connect with at least one other awesome blogger.

First, I want to thank all those who participated in LINK-UP #6.    If you want to check out the responses, please click the link. Don’t be shy. You are more than welcome to still get in on the conversation.

Below are a few fellow bloggers who participated in the most recent “LINK-UP” as well as in past discussions.  Please check them out. You may discover a new friend and a new inspiration is just a link away.

I am extremely thankful for my blogging community.

I am inspired by you every day.

  1. I think it has, but I grew up old fashioned and even as an adult I don’t curse in front of my parents.

    1. I appreciate your answer and your old-fashion-ism. I love your respect for your parents. Many don’t have that, which is sad.

  2. Yes, to most people, it seems. But, thankfully, for my family it doesn’t have to come into our home! No one in our immediate family uses vulgar language, and for television we use “TV Guardian” and “Clearplay.” I highly recommend them!

    1. I’ve not heard of either of them. I will have to research it. We have options to block certain channels that we know are not family oriented, in all areas…language, nudity, etc. We have lots of channels blocked. So sad that our local cable has come to such measures. Thanks for your comments. I really appreciate it. 🙂

      1. TV Guardian mutes bad language for any program that has closed captioning. Most DVDs are now going to “subtitles for the deaf and hearing impaired” (SDH) instead, so we discovered Clearplay for DVDs. Clearplay is a blue ray player that you pay a monthly service to use (we paid a couple of years ahead in one chunk to get a discount). It costs less than $10/month and is fabulous! It edits the movies for about 12 different things (like nudity, vulgarity, disturbing images, etc). It skips unwanted images and mutes bad language. There are tons of movies we would never watch without it. I tell everyone about it! I think their service works with certain online streaming sites now, too.

  3. Yes it has. Its definitely not a good thing. I believe that it’s disrespectful and rude to use such language. Television has gotten out of control with allowing vulgar words to be used on tv shows and movies. its one the many reasons that I do not have cable and refuse to ever pay for it again.

    1. I admire you for not having cable. Many people would not go that route. Thanks for being so brave and setting such a great example for others. 🙂

  4. Unfortunately so.You see 2 year old toddlers cursing like sailors, and parents who simply laugh as if it was a behaviour to be rewarded. Music videos who use an incredible amount of vulgar language it’s disrespectful, (in many cases disrespectful to woman’s bodies) yet they are paid to shout these words out loud to the world. I think vulgar language has not only become acceptable, it has become idolised, a means to acquire money and fame sadly enough.

    1. So so true! I’m sure there will be a day, the media will no longer use the bleep, which in my mind… still brings attention to all words said; but until we stand up and do something about it, it will remain. I pray for our human race often!❤️

  5. It has become very common, or frequent. I do not think there is any good reason for it unless we are feeling in the frame of mind which is reflected by such words, and i do not like it. But the fact remains, it keeps on happening.

    1. So sorry for the late reply. I’ve been out of town and just now catching up on my comments.
      You’re right. There is no good reason for it. It’s a learned behavior which is passed down to other generations. It’s been around for years and years and will probably always remain.
      Thanks for participating. I appreciate your thoughts. 🙂

    Vulgar language is like spitting or burping out loud…it’s a bad habit that we just get used to. And…we just follow along with it, accepting it, even when it isn’t a good thing. As far as acceptable goes, I guess you can see it in those terms. But it is not the way we were ever supposed to politely and intelligently express ourselves. I find it most offensive and unacceptable!!

    1. I agree…but I think it’s worse than spitting or burping. One is a bad habit but the other is immoral. I, personally, don’t accept it. If I hear it and cannot remove myself from it, I politely ask the person to use less offensive words. If I see it on social media, I remove myself from the situation. (delete,block,hide…whatever I need to do.) and sometimes, yes…it’s even from good friends and family. Sad but true. I, like you, find it most offensive and unacceptable. Thanks for your comments. I truly appreciate knowing how you and others feel. Sometimes, we may feel we are all alone but there may be more of us in the same boat than we think. 🙂

        Laura, you have beautifully restated my reply and I thank you for that. Of course the vulgarity is immoral, and thus more serious than spitting or burping aloud.

        And you do well by removing yourself from offensive language whenever you can. If you receive criticism for it, it is to your praise from God! You are certainly welcome for my comments and I thank you for your corrective but polite reply to them…

  8. It has become common place. The only way to fight it is to ignore it when possible and answer it with dignity when not.

  9. A question as this places a respondent in a precarious position. On one hand I want to refrain from the appearance of being judgmental; on the other I want to unload with both barrels…

    I’m not so sure, Laura, we can speak of vulgarity in the singular term of language alone. The verbal, and other, vulgarity used by young men and women today is reprehensible at best. I’m not saying when I was a younger man we didn’t have our own vulgarity; but we were respectful enough to keep it in the proper environment and away from mixed company.

    Young men and women today speak with such words as to make a sailor blush [and] women dressing in such fashion as to lead me to wonder how they could scarcely keep a boyfriend; let alone attract a respectable man for marriage.

    These same young women listen to music of which depicts them as b****es and whores; rather than be offended they revel in it as if it were titles of nobility. They celebrate the vulgarity with laughter and dance. Casting aside all manner of self respect. That too is vulgarity.

    Has vulgar language become so normal in society that it’s become acceptable? Vulgar language and so much more. All of these things no long fit neatly defined in a sub culture; but are now social norms.

    Thank you, Laura, for taking the time to read my rambling (lol) and tolerating my thoughts. Both are greatly appreciated.

    May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless and keep you and yours.

    1. Thanks so much for openly expressing your thoughts. No judgements here. This is just a place to express our feelings on certain issues and connect with others. I agree with your comments. (Vulgar language and so much more is totally correct.) I know God is an awesome God and He is in control. I pray, try to be a good example and turn the rest over to Him. Sometimes living in the world is a struggle but I have faith He will get me through. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. Much appreciated. 🙂

      1. Hello, Laura, and thank you for your response and kindness of words. Both are truly appreciated.

        I am afraid I have never known the luxury of being “Politically Correct” nor being “overly tolerant.” If we are to emulate Jesus Christ, our Messiah, in any way; let it be as Paul proclaimed – “I have fought the good fight.”

        God bless you and all of your readers; may the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless and keep you all in His love and Peace.

          1. Laura;
            I see at some point you have dropped by my blog. I am so glad you have. Of course you and your readers/followers are welcome to visit and browse the library at any time.

            Yes, Laura, there does seem to be a lot of posts. I believe most recently there were just shy of 2,000 on file with the majority being written [text] posts and the remainder being a small fraction of videos and other related media. It’s been a grand opportunity and a wondrous walk with God doing this project.

            Along the way I have had an outstanding walk with God and the pleasure of meeting many wonderful people, as yourself, from all persuasions and religious affiliations. Including many atheists of whom I now call friends.

            I wanted to say to you that I think you have a novel idea here with posting the “question of the week”. An excellent forum for others to express themselves and share thoughts. Not to mention the friendships of which can be built through our ideas and interaction.

            Before starting my ramblings once again I will thank you for your visiting and for the wondrously kind words spoken of myself and the blog. Both are greatly appreciated, Laura.

            May the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob bless you and keep you and yours.

            Yours in Christ;

            1. I hope to always leave this window of opportunity open for those who want to share. I look forward to meeting and talking with fellow bloggers. God gives us so many avenues of opportunity to share positive with others. I am thankful for that! 🙂


  10. I think society has accepted it, unfortunately. I hear children cursing (or swearing as we say in Canada) in front of their parents who don’t even blink. I think it’s terrible, so no, it’s not acceptable to me. Neither is turning on the tv at 9 pm to see people dating naked. I think media dictates our morals these days and we have to remind ourselves that we do not need to simply be followers.

    2. I totally agree. Media has been very successful in dictating what they think is acceptable. What blows my mind is how the ratings seem to just keep going up for immorality. Just when I think it can’t get worse..it does. But as you said, we do not need to be followers. But it’s difficult living in a world among the followers. Thanks so much for participating. I appreciate your comments. 🙂
