bitch? What reaction does that get out of you? Is that a word you throw around?

  • Honestly, the word doesn't bother me because it is typically used when a women is being assertive in some manner - which to me is a compliment. It does bother me that there is no equivalent for when a man is acting the same way.

  • Depends on who says, I have a few close people I love and they call me that, and I just laugh, I know how they mean it.

    Now other people can kiss my ass.

    I used it sparingly to describe a very select few people in my life acting bitchy and hurtful.

  • Reaction is, I want to slap you for saying it.
    I might call you that in my mind. But not out loud.

  • I get called 'bitch' on a daily basis from my students. I just say "Thanks, that lets me know I am doing my job" and I smile.

  • imo its the worst insult when said with malicious intent, especially if said by a man. ive never been called one maliciously (to my face) but it would really get under my skin.

  • No, its just another word and it only has meaning if you let it. We call each other that in jest.

  • I don't throw that word around a lot, but do use it sometimes to describe someone who is irritable and very nasty. I don't pay attention to what people may call me. I know who I am.

  • No, I don't cuss.

  • I think it depends on how it's being used -the manner in which it's said, who's saying it, etc. I know some friends jokingly call ea. other that (wish they would find something more endearing- but hey, we pick our battles) But if it's said in the heat of anger, or from a child/adolescent to an adult- that's totally unacceptable!
