  • He would be incorrect. "Bitch" doesn't have any positive connotations.

  • He is wrong. If it bothers you that should be reason enough to not use it.

  • If you mean English like people who live in England than your husband is not right. Bitch is offensive anyway. It means you keep going on and on something that you shouldn't. Bitching is like moaning in the high-school slang. Nowadays the youth chevs (young, under-educated, show off teenagers) tells to each other especially school-aged ones just for fun. But I don't think your husband thought that meaning. I live in England and that word is not nice at all in any conversation. So I would be offended if my SO would use this word to mark me with it any time. Ask him, that what does the bitch mean in English in England. I wonder what he would say. Keep me posted:D

  • Bitch means bitch in any language that you say it in. He's just trying to cop out and get out of the fact that he called you one.

  • Bitch is actually a female dog. LOL!!! However, yes I would take offense to it in any language.

  • So first he calls you a completely offensive name. And then he tries to lie and manipulate to get out of owning his behavior. Wow.
    Not exactly a keeper now, is he?

  • So, he's saying you're a female dog? Divorce him!
