Instead of stating your opinion over again, take a look at research about it. There is a cathartic effect from cursing. That is a reason. Whether there are better options, other options, and whether the benefits outweigh the negative effects are irrelevant. It is up to each individual to decide if it is a good enough reason, but there is a reason.
Kissing a child's injury and cursing are two totally different things. And your saying that by doing something wrong you can make something right. You don't have to curse, there is this thing called yelling AH! And laughing also has been proven to help pain so why don't people just laugh instead? There is no benefit to cursing.
As I said, there a psychological benefit. That is a reason. Kissing a child's injury doesn't fix it, but it does make them feel better. Should we refuse to do so if someone else finds it rude?
But is there any reason to say such foul language because you hurt you toe?
There is actuality a psychological release of stress when someone curses in their native language. Doesn't mean they should curse at other people, but when you stub your toe, swearing can actually help you feel better.
