Considering that β€œLOL” stands for laugh out loud, as an English speaker I’ve always wondered in countries where English is not the native language do they utilize this same abbreviation even though they speak another language when texting?

Or is LOL simply an English thing

Fellas is it racist to speak your own language

I was on Twitter (the embodiment of hell on earth) and some β€œwokeβ€œ person got mad at my for speaking my own language. claiming it’s β€œcultural appropriationβ€œ and got super fucking mad when I continued to speak my own language. Because I said β€œnegro”. A fucking word. I don’t know why people have decided that negro is a slur without the opinion of Spanish and Portuguese speaking people who say it on a daily basis.

When an American goes to a different country and speaks their language with an American accent, is it cool in the same way as when someone comes to America and speaks English with a foreign accent?

The best example of this I can think of is when someone who is from France comes to America and speaks English, but with a French accent. People usually think it’s cool or unique. However, if it were reversed and an American went to France and spoke French in an American accent, what would people think? Or what if it’s from a totally different region, what if someone from Japan went to France and spoke French with their regular accent, what would people think?

Putting curse words in your sentences isn’t a sign of low intellect, being lazy or unnecessary. Cursing is a necessary language component

I think cursing is an element of language that is extremely valuable.

Expressing emotion is one of the biggest factors of language, and sometimes your emotions are so big, regular words just don’t do it. I don’t promote constantly using them, but the fact that these words are taboo make them very influential. I think there should be words like that, so when we use them, there’s emphasis.

For example, saying β€œget over here!” Simply doesn’t hold up to β€œget the fuck over here”. It communicates a sense of urgency which would be difficult to express otherwise in a quick and concise phrase.

Of course, there’s always tone of voice to convey the same things that cursing does. But some of us don’t have that ability.

Personally, I struggle with tone of voice. My voice is flat and monotone, and my facial expressions aren’t very expressive either. My voice is naturally quiet and it gets no ones attention. So cursing, when used sparingly, is a powerful element

Edit- thank you for all of the responses and rewards! I appreciate it all :)

LPT: Learn to say "I don't understand" in the languages of any country you live in or visit

Seriously, it will help you out big time if you ever need medical care or contact with other services like police etc.

There may not be alternatives if you're in a retail space or a rural setting, but at least saying you don't understand can help people try to accommodate you or diffuse a situation.
