    Bitch is a Dog

    Dogs Bark

    Bark is Part of a Tree

    Tree is Nature

    Nature is Beautiful

    So thank you for the compliment!

    On a serious note in the context you put it I do not find it offensive, and I do wish I was sometimes more of a bitch as well!

    I wish I saw it as offensive. Maybe then I wouldn’t say it so often!!

    I just hate when women are like “I’m a BITCH!” like it’s something to be proud of. It’s a stereotype and I think it makes women look bad. Being assertive and being a bitch are two different things.

    I don’t see it as offensive at all. Me and my friends call each other, or ourselves a bitch all the time. I even call my guy friends bitch and they call me bitch back…it does not phase me at all.

    I guess I do and don’t, I think it is more Misogynistic and brings all womens worth down but who of us isn’t guilty of using it that way?  If I were a better women then I wouldn’t use it, guess it is something I should work on this year.

    Nope, not offensive to me at all. I use it a lot, usually as a verb. Ex: “I bitched about that all day.”

    And I’m also one of the rare ones that is exposed to it in it’s proper context (referring to female dogs) on a regular basis.  Doesn’t phase me used in slang context either though. In fact, I think dog-show people use it as slang more than normal people do!

    It depends on how it’s said.  If it’s joking around, I have no problem with it.  If it’s said with a lot of anger behind it, then yes, I will probably take offense (unless I agree that I’m being a bitch!).  I don’t like being called a bitch without good reason though.  If you’re mad at me and call me a bitch, then give me a reason why you feel that way.

    In the context you mentioned then no, I wouldn’t be offended at all. I would however, be offended if someone were to call me a bitch and actually mean it!

    @abbyful:  I show my dog as well, and was just going to comment on that!

    It depends on the context and who is using it and why.  If my Fiance was angry and referred to me as a bitch (he knows better, thankfully), I’d be incredibly offended… however, if it’s being used a joke, as is often the case with my friends, I’m fine with it… and also, I happen to like a lot of the “qualities” that people ascribe to women who they consider “bitchy”… confident, ambitious, perseverant.

    I also use it as a verb, and I will refer to myself as a bitch, sometimes (eg., “God, I’m being so bitchy!!!”).   But something that REALLY bugs me about the word is the way that one of my facebook friends uses the word – she’ll refer to people as “bitches”, as in “Let’s party tonight, bitches!”.  Really?  I don’t know why, but it bugs the hell out of me.
