It depends on the kiwis you meet.

In general, kiwis are a bit like the Irish in that they won't swear at you, but will swear with you.

You'd have to be a real asshole to get your average kiwi to be aggressive towards you, but there are plenty of them who will happily swear like a trooper in general conversation.

An example

I'm just going by my limited experience from the 80's when I spent 2 weeks there. At one point we went to a public hot spring that had cement pools that the water cascaded down, making what looked like a giant set of stairs going down a hillside. Some kids were there, playing in a few by throwing small rocks back and forth. At one point, a 14+- year old boy stood up, and in a calm measured tone said "Excuse me. I would appreciate it if you would stop throwing stones."...and they did. We fell over laughing, knowing that an American teen has never once in all recorded history been so polite and adult when dealing with other kids, nor would American kids respond by stopping.
We didn't meet a single rude kiwi.
