>> Is profanity that frowned upon on the US (or wherever you're from)?

In reality, it's not. The way you describe profanity is exactly how everyone I know here who uses it. It's just that we also have a culture of busy-bodies who think everyone should have to adhere to their lifestyle. They are a minority, but they are this particular type of pain in the ass in most aspects of life, so it's easy for them to make a lot of noise all on their own.
