Last I checked, rape was about exhibiting your power to hurt people. Kids break the rules all the time. Swearing is just one of the easiest ways to do that. Not pointing out that these words are socially unacceptable doesn't take away their power. Society deems whether they have power or not. So to try and say that kids are more likely to say them because their parents don't let them is silly. It's society making the rules.

Kids emulate the environment they grow up in. If I was swearing around the house, letting them watch R rated movies, etc., they are more and more likely to repeat that behavior. I should hope that my kid is smart enough to not throw around those words in a job interview, but yes - letting him know it's okay to speak less than properly will be a detriment at one time or another. Since there's already a billion things in this world that will try and hold him back, why would I create another?
