Do You Cuss Around Women?

When I grew up, there used to be foul language that men used to use amongst themselves but one didn't use around women they respected.  A lot of the language was workplace related.  Cuss on the job, not at home.


There are many more women in ag related jobs now.  Agronomists, seed and chemical sales, precision ag techs, crop scouts and more.  And most of them are pretty good at what they do.


So, do you figure if they come on your farm in what used to be a man's role you will use language around them that you used to use only around men?


Do they cuss as bad as you do, trying to fit in?


Do you think if a woman is doing what used to be a man's job she can darned well put up with the foul language or get out?


Or do you still have a double standard on language between men and women regardless of the work role they are in?
