Bad language is present on every campus, but is it out of control at Godinez?

Bad language on campus shouldn’t come as a surprise to many people at Godinez including students. However, in my opinion it may come as a surprise, and it’s still upsetting to hear young people saying it.

Senior Ricardo Torres, at GFHS is used to hearing bad language around him. Two of Ricardo’s friends Bryan Barranon and Jose Soto, both seniors, shared his same view on this by them also not being surprised by it. On hearing it around me, it doesn’t surprise me in its use.  

Torres said, ¨The use of bad language on campus doesn’t affect me because I hear it all the time when I am around my friends or around others at lunch.¨ However, he added that when people are in public and you hear someone saying those things, it feels bad coming from that individual even though we also say them too.

Soto added, ¨it does affect me because of the way that small kids might learn from us and start to copy the things we do because they think it is ok.¨ However, Barranon said, ¨this does not affect me because I know that they are just words and they should not mean anything to me.¨

When asked if he encouraged or disapproved of it, he said, ¨I don’t encourage saying these things, but sometimes it slips out. Soto said, ¨I don’t encourage it because it makes me look like a less intelligent person around people.¨ However, Barranon said, ¨I shouldn’t tell you what you can and can’t say, just do whatever you want with your speech.¨ He added, ¨we shouldn’t be so controlling over something corresponding to free speech.¨

    I agree with Jose Soto because younger generations look at us as role models and for them to hear us say bad words, we are setting a bad example for them in the future. I myself have a younger sibling and I personally would not want to hear him saying these words at such a young age. I think there should be a reprimand of some sort when that language is used on campus. I also think there should be a cessation to the bad language people use when there are younger kids that can hear it.
