It is unnecessary in most instances to use swear words, even in direct quotes. It is better to leave out or in print leave a blank space.

A growing number of federal and state laws make it illegal to discriminate against a person because of their age, sex, race, health, marital status, sexual preferences or their choice of friends or sexual partners.

Do not refer to any of these aspects unless they are relevant and, even then, one mention is generally sufficient.
