They still ban profanities (I don’t know what they all are, obviously the „F-word“ is banned) on regular free TV. But, on pay-for TV like Netflix, anything goes. Anything goes in movies too. I agree that it’s useful in the right context. It’s silly for villains in a movie to not be using profanities. That’s just unrealistic. But then I only watch German TV on my internet apps and I never watch American TV shows unless they‘re dubbed over in German. But, for YouTube’s guys, usually young guys around 30, with a University degree to pretend to be news commentators on their podcasts and use the F-word in every sentence makes me think they sound like uneducated fools and I turn them off. Then they say I’m part of the „older generation“ so no wonder, and I don’t count. I’m not used to „young people’s speech“ supposedly. Hey, we used all those words too, we just think using them does not make us sound more intelligent or add anything to what we have to say. It’s takes away from being persuasive. It’s doesn’t enhance it.
