People feel that cussing is bad bc society has it imprinted in their head. When a word was used frequently to insult something/one it was considered to have a negative meaning, and to not be used in public. Therefore a swear word. IMO cuss words are just words used in lack of better terminology.
Really people if you don't like what she's doing in her story then don't come back and read it anmore or the replies it gets its what she wants to do and personally I like this story! So leave her alone!
...I think its worth posting comments because it will help to make a better story in the end. As the author it's your decision in the end but I would at least consider comments. I think cussing is a part of some peoples vocabulary so in some cases, it's just words... I very rarely cuss so when I say a bad word it get's peopls attention... I think my worst word that I say is "crap"... until I'm mad! Teehee... But I have friends that curse daily and can't complete a sentence w/out one....
But I think comments are always good... when I write stories I read the comments and sometimes I even make a change or go in a different direction... Other times... I choose to ignore the comments!
