Swear Words

Is there a website or someplace where I can look up and see cuss words in sign language?? Or does anyone know words?
You see when I could talk thats how I expressed myself if I was mad or angry. Its harder now, that I'm unable to talk anymore. I can still hear, but can't talk, due to medical reasons.
Thank-you

Well I'd like to know this too, is there some source for this, I'd feel odd asking someone in person... It's not that I'll be using them as much as I'd like to know what they are when I see them.

I never heard of any websites directed to swear words in Sign language, the only way to learn is from the deaf people. Good luck!

Most hearing people that I have met are interested in how to swear in ASL. I find it funny.

I am a bad girl so of course I taught them all the swear words and guess what? Some of them became so interested in it and ended up becoming fluent in ASL. LOL!

F word is the most popular to learn for sign language. Many hearing people thought the middle finger is a sign language....for the hearing people. heh

I didnt want to ask my teacher the swear words, and I didnt. Because as Maria stated, its as if all the person wants to know is the bad words.

One day we were talking and she swore, I could tell it was a bad word, she was embaressed. I told her to show me the sign again and tell me what it meant.

Now if she uses a swear word I have to figure it out on my own. Most I can guess what it means. lol

Huh? Oh no! wrong room for me. I do not want to learn any more of these signs. Not easy to break habit, but I've been doing pretty well so far.
no offense (door closes)

I was the same as you RDC girl, not wanting to ask my ASL teacher about profanity, but eventually found some of the signs at Profanity in ASL - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Sign language is not as hypocritical as English. A sign means what it means. In English you can't discuss your f-ing problems or everyone will be f-ing horrified, but you can sit at any table and discuss your coital dysfunctions and never raise an eyebrow. Basically people who don't know the right and proper word are considered crude and illiterate while those who do are socially acceptable -- Even tho the subject is the same.

So if you know the right and proper word go to your ASL dictionary and presto -- there will be the sign for it.

Like Maria said, I am a teacher to some students, some students wants to know some swear words, espeically my good friend in Sydney, wanted to know, but for my own mind, I said no to her, because they have to sign the language first, before they can learn the dirty ones in the end.

So, the hearing people ALWAYS ask my husband to show them to swear in sign language. To solve this problem he got a new tattoo. He had Fu*k off in finger spelling put accross his shoulder blades. Now he just takes off his shirt show them the tattoo and tells them to go to the library and figure it out!! LOL
