When I was five, I would play my Sega Genesis. On one of my games, the spikes moving up and down sounded like someone was saying f**k. So whenever the spikes popped up I would say f**k. I got slapped for that...

I went over my friends house one day when I was young and we were talking about school. One of her class assignments was to write about what scared you or something like that and it was due in a few days. So she asked me if it would be bad to put "I don't like spiders. They freak me out" because she thought freak was a swear word.

My older brother would swear a lot around me and tell me that words like f**k and s**t were names. The words Ugly Whore was the name Louisa May, my mothers first and middle name. This didn't cause a problem until someone gave me a doll and asked me what I'd name it. Proudly I said, "She's Ugly Whore, like my mummy."

Louisa May's daughter.

When I was 6, I used to think the term "dummy" was a curse word. So I felt really grown-up and cool calling someone "dummy".

One time we were in the library at school in 5th grade and we got a dictionary and were looking for the word 'penis'. We knew what it meant, but just because we were immature little 5th graders, you know. So anyway, the librarian comes over and says, "What are you guys looking up?" We all exchanged faces of horror and then all 5 of us said 5 different words starting with 'P' at the same time. The librarian looked at us and without a word, turned to the page with the definition of penis.

When I was about 5 I was talking on the phone with my father - he to this day has somewhat of a dirty mouth - and apparently he used the word "f*ck" in a sentence and I'm not quite sure why but until I was about 10 or 11 I would SWEAR to you that it meant one of those red tin wagons. I think I even put it on my Christmas list one year to my mother's utter horror.

one day at a family party me and my cousin were about 4 and we were sitting outside with our 14 year old cousin and in the yard across the street a boy about 11 or 12 came out and gave me and my other 4 year old cousin the finger. we asked our older cousin what it meant and he jokingly told us it meant the boy loved us. so we acted all flirtacious and went on about a week giving cute boys the finger until our mothers told us it meant something bad ...

I used to believe that "bum" was a bad word, because I got in trouble when I saw a bum and shouted "LOOK! LOOK AT THE BUM! BUUUUMMM!" as loudly as I could.

I used to belive that you could give "the finger" to anyone. One day my mom, my sister, and I were riding in the car, and I saw the boy who put a worm in my hair that day. I gave him the finger and my mom saw. I was so embarrest when I had to say that I didn't know it was bad.

i used to think that the word "stupid" was a curse word, ranging in scale right beside the "f" word.

When I first started school I remember our *very* scary teacher took out a tin of black soap and said that if anyone ever said any bad words she would wash their mouth out with it and it would stain their mouth for weeks so that everyone would know! Of course there's always some (not me!) who have to push it, and one time we honestly thought she was going to but the bell rang.....

When I was in 1st grade my cousin convinced me that China was a dirty word. So whenever someone would say something about it I would be thinking, "Ewwww, China..." and giggle about it and no one understood why.

When I was about 7, I thought that there was a swear word for every letter of the alphabet. I knew the A,B,F and S words but I desperatly wanted to know the other 22, so I'd go around saying random jibberish hoping that I'd get yelled at for saying the Z word or V word. I was a strange child...
