OK..I'm giving in... I will not call a woman a Bitch anymore....
Advertisements [?]
even if she is one... I started a thread the other day stating that it was OK to call a woman a bitch if she deserved the title. The posts were mixed with agreement and disagreement.

I made one post indicating that if the majority of women think it's OK to use the term then it was ...OK.

Well, sometimes the majority is wrong. If a name word like Bitch offends a minority of people then it should not be used.

I've got 3 kids under 10 and each day I try to teach them how to be sensitive in their behavior towards other people. I've got to lead by example and the way to do that is not to be a hypocrite. Not using the word Bitch will not kill me..believe me...

Peace
