Are these swear words?

I'm getting into a little dispute with my friend and my brothers, are the following words "bad" words?

1) skank
2) crap
3) slut

Any others you can think of that may or may not be considered "bad"?

I personally think all the words are offensive in some way.
Well, except for crap because I quite often say 'Oh Crap! I forgot...'. But skank and slut both can be offensive to a person which to me makes them swear words, but only if you use them in a certain way..

that's what I said, lol.thanx ally.

blerggher, that's what I've been wondering.

why did people just take a handful or words and mark them as "bad"? the're words. all bad words offend people in some way, but shouldn't that mean that stupid, idiot, dumb, and all of those words used to call people names are bad too? why those words?

"b-I-t-c-h" is a female dog and guys call their buddies "dog" all the time, so why is the female version considered deragatory?

"f-a-g-g-o-t" used to be defined as a pile of sticks, then a homosexual, the same as the word "gay," so why isn't the word "gay" also deemed as deragatory?

even when I tried to submit this, funadvice bans them, hence the reason for the "-" between the letters.
