Cussin'! I recognize it as a necessary evil and I myself appreciate the application of a strategic swear on occasion (like the time I had what I'm pretty sure was a hormone related breakdown (a few days after my first depo shot) in my car when I couldn't find what I wanted in the mall. I am pretty sure I made up new cusses! And it is undeniable that cusswords can have way more impact than non cusses. I have tried not to cuss on this blog (because it isn't classy and you know a blog about all the ridiculous stuff that irritates me needs to be extra classy) but today I am breaking that self-imposed rule.
Y'all. I hate the word bitch. Sometimes people are bitches. This is a statement that is a statement of truth. Sometimes people are also assholes and calling them buttholes makes you sound likea ten year old. I get it. I do. But no one is trying to "reclaim" assholes. No one is out there going "I'm proud to be an asshole" (except for Michelle Bachmann (I'm sorry, I couldn't help it. Well, I could, but I didn't want to. I mean, come on.). But for some reason, people think they should reclaim bitch.
Listen, the best you can say about bitch is that it is the appropriate term for a female dog. It has never been an appropriate term for a female human and therefore there is nothing to REclaim. There is no hidden past where being a bitch meant something awesome that we should try to reclaim the meaning to, okay? It was an insult to be called a dog.
