180. Nope
It is impossible to use these words out of a hostile and aggressive context. Well, perhaps an argument could be made for "n*gger" if one were to assume that it can be seen as a term of comraderie between african-americans (a view I don't ascribe to).

Bitch is a term generally used to describe an annoying or rude female. Just as dick, cock, etc. is used to describe an annoying or rude male.

If you want to ban bitch, you must necessarily ban those other words because they serve the same function in our lexicon.

And you know what? After bitch is banned people will then convey their feelings lingusticly by saying "that nagging woman" or "that obnoxious man". Such phrases are offensive, but should they be banned?
