of course i use them... but only to express my anger or shock when talking with my close friends...
other people believe i'm a gentle girl who never call someone names.  
I am a Beijing girl.

I never say a dirty word in English...

actually, there is no need to say it!  As to Chinese, of course, I do, but only confined to some small dirty ones. You know, in China, different areas have their own dialect, which also contributes to the varied dirty words....

Sometimes, what you want to say can only be said clearly using certain words...or you have to have sufficient command of whatever language in which you are proficient to use other words that can get the same idea across.

Problem with that is, there is always the chance - and often a great chance - that the person to whom you wish to express a certain idea or suggestion will only understand the force of your intent if you use a word that has a certain impact to it and who will just look at you with a blank stare if you try and actually use high quality language - from whatever culture.

Euphemisms don't always work!
