Is it not disingenuous to curse liberally with some friends but not others?

@ykgoon
Everyone displays different parts of themselves in different contexts.

@ykgoon Unless your friends are completely interchangeable, it's normal to behave differently around different people.

@ykgoon Only if you buy into the single-coherent-identity worldview

@ykgoon hmmm. I feel like, it's not disingenuous to speak Mandarin to my in-laws and English to my side of the family. Why would it be disingenuous to speak "English, R-rated version" to one group of friends and "English, PG-rated version" to another group? It's all about what will communicate most effectively with fewest distractions.
