Thank’s for writing this, Rachel. I feel exactly the same way. I have stopped following several authors that I previously found great value in because the use of explicit language has become such a nuisance. Your comment about swearing being unnecessary and adding zero value to the piece is so accurate; it often takes away from the writing. If a narrative about “cultivating respect” in Slack communities needs an f-bomb in the title, I’m not going to learn anything from the piece. It makes it difficult to share posts with friends and family if I have to provide a warning up front that this is “adult” content…Seriously?
