203. Fear?
Or don't really care much what you or other people in general think or whether you consider bitch to be offensive. I don't like to be told what to say, by GW Bush or by you. I am pro-women but think threads like these are used to vent anger say silly things like "Why do men fear women so much?". I don't fear women or womyn. I admire and respect but do not fear.

One, it simply isn't true, nor is it true for my friends that we fear women.

TWo, if the shoe fits for some women then the word is appropriate. Funny, I mostly hear that word from women used to describe other woman and rarely hear that word used by me or my friends. Sometimes bitch is the best word in the context of a situation.

Three: I think that "word policing" is dangerous. I would reject any censorship of that sort. This is where the LEFT meet the far RIGHT.

Four: There is no equivalent to the word Bitch in our minds because we don't care about words and if it did hurt, we wouldn't tell you. Why should I? I can tell you have some anger towards men and I would notice that from the beginning. I wouldn't trust you with my emotional self.
