I don't think I would ever use profanity in a talk with high school students. I wish he could have made his (entirely valid) points without profanity.
I'm shocked at the number of students who thought it was okay to walk out, but we didn't see the other sessions. At some conferences I've attended people go in and out of sessions based on their level of interest in the subject. I've walked out of a session within a few minutes quite a few times.
