    Because the English language is very unimaginative in that matter? 🤷🏼‍♂️

    Because it’s the ultimate word..

    Fucking someone
    I don’t give a fuck
    That’s fucking good
    He’s a fucker
    A-fucking-mazing

    Fuck, that fucking fucker fucked my girl-fucking-friend, fuck him!

    See my point?

    I like to use old English words that haven't been changed in hundreds of years, so my conversations are littered with fuck, piss, ass, twat, shit and of course, one of the oldest, cunt.

    It provides a weight to the expression.

    Shit is just shit, but everything is shit.

    Fuck on the other hand is a magical word that we have made to defy the rules.
    Also known as an expletive attributive.

    Noun: he is a fucker!
    Verb: she was fucking him
    Adjective: that's one fucked Apple
    Adverb: they lost fucking everything

    Shall I continue?

    I do think there might be some Freudian stuff going on.

    If you watch american porn they say "oh shit... fuck... shit" every 2 seconds -- which I find really unattractive, talking about excrement during sexy times.

    On the other hand, here in the Netherlands it's pretty normal to say "Dat is echt kut" (Literally "that is really cunt"), even in semi-formal situations, like when your boss says that a big client was lost. We also prefix it: "kutcode". Or as a verb, an edgy teacher might say to unruly students: "loop niet zo te kutten" (stop cunting around). And of course godverdekutkanker "goddammitcuntcancer"

    And then there's the French with their "Éteins cette putain de ordinateur" -- "Turn off that whoring computer!" and "putain de bordel", which is Holy Shit! but literally just "Brothel Whore!", and "tu as fait un bordel" You made a mess... eh you made a brothel?

    So

    US = Poopsex fetishists

    Dutch = A bunch of carcinogenic cunts

    French = A brothel full of whores

    🤷‍♂

    Because something like "Heil Hitler mein Fuhrer" is neither as easy to say nor does it sound as cool, which is why they lost the war to folks who just said "fuck this shit".

    Easy to spell.

    Who uses long swear words you have to google..

    I'm reminded having been a parent once, that dreaded moment when your kids learn to swear.

    Now, some parents try to ignore it, as if that ever works. :-)

    Me, I tried a different approach.

    I said to my daughter, telling your brother to f off rather loses its impact after the first few times.

    What you want to do is figure out far more hurtful words to say.

    The next day at school, the teacher told us she made several bully boys cry because she said something to them. :-)

    I won't repeat the affectionate nicknames she thought up for her brother, that probably to this day, still cause him to get awfully upset every time she uses them.

    Far far more affective than a single swear word.

    Fuck if I know this shit.

    Jokes apart I suspect it may be a form of anger relief... Not for lots of anger, but just like a passive reminder that you have it in your system.
    In our society anger is seen as a taboo (cause we all feel it, but come on, will you really admit you are HUMAN? WHAT? YOU ALSO FEEL FEAR AND YOU FEEL BAD FOR UNETHICAL STUFF? GET FIRED, SCRUB!), but in the end, wish for it or not we are just super intelligent apes, and even if we try to repurpose anger, we still need to express it somehow...

    Peyo tried to change the habbit of people to swear in numerous languages, but didn't succeed, because...

    Smurf, that smurfing smurfer smurfed my girl-smurfing-friend, smurf him!
