    Sorry. I'm translating from Chinese into Japanese into English. Try, 不堪, which means, unbearable; unbearable questons. :D Note that, endure and bear are synonyms.

    EX: He asked questions which were hard for me to bear.

    By the way, vulgar, 近义词: coarse; common; crass; crude; filthy; foul; improper; indecent; nasty; obscene; offensive; uncouth.

    All the best,
