"I'm a b**** and proud of it" Why?

Why do some women like being called or considered a bitch? Since when is it 'cool' to be proud to be a bitch? My sister likes to say "all women are bitches." I disagree, When I think someone is a bitch, I think they're nasty, unnecessarily rude, and generally a bad person. Are there different definitions of the word? I particularly hate the phrase "classy bitch" seems like an oxymoron to me. I don't think being a bitch intentionally is classy at all.
We all have our 'slips' where we can definitely be mean, but I don't think I could call myself a bitch and be proud of it.

some women identify with the word 'bitch' as meaning strong minded, strong opinions and not afraid to go after what they want.

I think that's something women say when they have self-confidence issues and need to think of themselves and ruthless or "badass" people who don't care about what other people think about them (which, in reality, is far from the truth). That's my (educated in Psychology) guess.

I don't understand it either. I would personally get offended if someone called me that, or even said, "Your ACTING like a bitch". To me, it's the same thing. It doesn't make any sense to me.

Depends on your definition of Bitch.

I think it's the whole "taking back" a word.

I have to agree.   It's not so important to me to be hardcore.  I'd rather be nice.  And I can be a strong woman with my own opinions and not be mean about it.

I look at it this way, i have been called a bitch for not taking crap off of anybody, if that makes me a bitch so be it. but i am not mean and nasty unless I have to be.
