Compulsive profanity (not to be confused with Tourette syndrome) is a characteristic common to public school cultures, Hollywood values, United States Hip Hop groups, and liberal internet users. It consists of nonstop profanity and vulgarity. Dim-witted participants may find humor in it, and shows featured on the channel Comedy Central cater to this audience. It is particularly common throughout contemporary youth culture.
Profanity is virtually non-existent in homeschooling cultures.
