The reason I put this topic here is not trying to pull attention to the question by using swear words, but because of asking this myself the other day, when I heard this in Sunday school.
I personally, don't mind hearing the word, since I feel that it became a "normal" word like
verdammt - whose roots are for sure worse than referring to excrements, especially in Sunday school.
Even the Duden, only classifies it as
[..] salopp abwertend [..] ausgesprochen schlecht, unerfreulich, ärgerlich
which does not categorize it as an offensive word.
On the other hand, I know several mothers uttering this word in front of their kids, will give you an evil eye at best.
So no matter one would object if you use the word or not, my question is:
Are there any sources which shows whether or not the word
scheiße has become a "normal" word in the German language?
