Closed minded people think that. Eminem's an artist like other musicians that... paints a picture with his words. And most of the time, he's not exactly painting a pretty picture, he's painting the ugly truths on life, mainly his, like many other artists do... So really, swearing is the perfect way to get that across. That was what he felt like saying at the time. Like, if I smash my finger with a hammer da accident, I'm not gonna say, "Oh gosh that really hurt" I'm probably gonna say, "Agh! Mother fuckin, son of a bitch! Dammit!" and proceed to throw the hammer. The people hating on the swearing, to me, are hating on honesty.
