comment How accepted is ‘f***ing’ in informal conversation?
Wow, didn't know gender increased... and you're wrong, your personal bias is showing, strongly. Google "fry on swearing" about swearing and level of education.

comment “My friends and I” vs. “My friends and me” vs. “Me and my friends”
"generations of schoolmarms" can't win against the natural evolution of language. That which flows better wins (of course, flow most often depends on what one hears more often, which sounds/feels more familiar)
