That teacher must have been an ass....

And technically...no, its not a bad word. If you mean it in a good way, no. Just like if your in church and your talkking about hell...then its not a bad word. But if you tell someone to goto hell, then yes it is.

Unless you are in fourth grade, ass is not a bad word. My teachers use it everyday...often calling me a smartass :(. I guess it really depends on what grade you're in and how strict of a school you go to. I'm in 9th grade and go to a ghetto high school with 4000+ students, so I guess I'm fine.

No, not a bad word. Claiming that this is what you meant is always going to go as 'unbelievable' by teachers. Because they are

Ass=Rump, butt or any other Euphamism you can think of. Yes it is a 'bad' word, no argument about that.

It depends entirely on the context. If the teacher had heard your entire statement, and gave you a detention because you were referring to a donkey as an 'ass', then they are just wrong.

Its not bad word, and that teacher is ass+hole. My teachers swear under there breath alot, if you listen close, lol. My math teacher said to me the other day, that grade wise im shitting the bed! In front the whole class! And my basic nursing skills teacher farted the other day when she bent over to pick up a linen for the class beds (we got like 6 beds in the classroom).

9th grade

Depends on the context it's used in really. But for the most part (in my opinion) it's not a bad word...

Do you get 5 minutes detention?
On my school you get 45 Minutes detention if we do something wrong.And we are late at school or class we must go 8:00AM be on school instead of 8:30AM.

It does indeed depend on context. I've always considered the "rear" form a minor bad word, along with slightly more major samples such as crap and damn, bloody and even blasted depending on who you're speaking to.
Generaly, I always think that people who constantly use stronger launguage do so due to limited vocabulary and inability to prounounce words of more than two sylables, so all in all I'm not bothered much about swearing of any type, scale or form. Some people's idea of a debate these days seem to slanging matches.

If there's one topic that should be studied closely it is swear-words.

Avoids on all kinds of embarrassment when you know what they mean. :D

Come ON!!!

lol...you should live where I do...
You can say to a stranger "Hello my lover, you have a lovely arse" and they'll smile at you and take it as a compliment...

on the other hand, if you were to say "you have a lovely ass" they'd look at you blankly and say "you are mistaken...I do'nt have a donkey"

i dont consider ass a bad word, because you can say "butt" or "behind" and get away with it...why not ass? after getting outta private school things like "oh that kicks butt" sounds weird

What kind of school do you go to? Is it only for 2 hours a day? (Just wondering since you only got 5 whole minutes of detention...:rolleyes: )
