A couple of days back, I was reading something about slangs and why most often they outrage the modesty of women. But that is not what I want to talk about here. I read a very interesting take on the word ‘Bitch’ about which I would want to write.
When does a man call a women Bitch? It is when a woman refuses to be treated like a doormat and does not settle for anything less than the privileges offered to men. So when ‘Bitch’ is used as an insult to a woman, you could assume that she is a woman who has opinions and does not shy away from talking about them, she is the type who believes in the concept of ‘a tooth for a tooth, an eye for an eye’ – who refuses to sit back, get embarrassed and smile uneasily when being offended or bothered.
So, it basically boils down to the fact that being bold, outspoken and sensibly extrovert is being a bitch.
And if someone calls you one, then you could just take that as a compliment and say Thanks!
