2 : to debase by a wrong, unworthy, or vulgar use

That covers a lot. But only you can know your intention. I'm just saying that there are a lot of things that are considered profanity by wrong, unworthy, or vulgar application. That includes wrong, unworthy, or vulgar titles for human excrement, sexual activity, or personal insults.

You guys need to get a good Moral Theology manual that explains these concepts in depth. You might be surprised. :)

To refrain from using profanity is not sinful. Bearing this in mind, then, it is the obligation of one who choses to use it to first determine its morality.

What does the responsibility of educating yourself about what is sinful and what is not have to do with language context? Context has to do with what makes it a sin or not. Language context does not determine if it is or is not your responsibility to know for certain.
