Princessbinas: if a kindergartener can read well enough to look things up in a dictionary, i'd be quite impressed. another thing--some of those words you've mentioned have an actual application. a lot of curse words don't, but some do. (for instance, one means a female dog, one means a child born out of wedlock, etc.)
also, if curses weren't in the dictionary and listed as "offensive" (because i believe that they are listed as such in all of my dictionaries), how would you know not to use them?
