"We were really interested in how the media can influence your view about profanity," Laura Stockdale, a coauthor of the study, said. "So we looked at if [teens] think it is OK to use profanity, if [they] think that it's normal and appropriate, and then [their] actual profanity use and how [their] profanity use is related to aggressive behavior."
Profanity in media is linked to teen aggression, a recent study out of Brigham Young University found. Research shows that exposure to profanity directly relates to an individual's beliefs and behavior.
