57. find me an example of a man being beaten bloody by a woman
sreaming 'take that bitch' and we'll talk about how it's unisex.

it happens to women all the time.

the behavior she may have exhibited was missing the bus or looking at him wrong. you claiming these behaviors 'that EVERYONE dislikes in ALL people.' or that 'Men who act like that get treated the same way.'

trying to put forth that women universally deserve the word whenever it's applied is crap.
