My Mom always said “If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all” Now the word is that profanity in television and video games is linked to teen aggression, researchers at Brigham Young University found. Professor Sarah Coyne said the statistical modeling points to a chain reaction – exposure to profanity is associated with acceptance and use of profanity, which in turn influence both physical and relational aggression. “Profanity is kind of like a stepping stone,” Coyne said. “You don’t go to a movie, hear a bad word, and then go shoot somebody. But when youth both hear and then try profanity out it can start a downward slide toward more aggressive behavior.”
