    I had a couple of friends in high school who would use the bitch term and it kind of irritated me. As much as I knew that they were just being affectionate, I really couldn't get around the meaning of the word. I mean, why not call me 'girlie', 'girlfriend', 'love', 'sweetie', 'sweet thang'. Anything other than the bitch term please.
    Exactly. It's just cool to be bad.

    I don't think bitch is a term of affection, but it can be funny if you know the person is joking. My own mother and sisters and I throw the word "bitch" around to each other.

    Do you have a problem with the terms "bitchy" or "bitching"? What's the difference?

    Which then reminds me of 13 year olds swearing and smoking because they think it makes them mature..

    Some people just break everything down to lowest common denominator.

    There is nothing wrong moralistically with this behavior.. it's just immature
    Err....No. Not really.
    Lot of high horses in here.

    What I find interesting is that people can take so much offense at a teasing/playful use of the word "bitch", yet repeatedly on this board there are comments made such as "women are so bitchy". "I don't make friends with women because I can't stand how catty they are". And nobody seems to bat an eyelid.

    That's fucked up.

    Actually, it's not a lesbian specific publication.

    As your example points out, we often pick up habits from those we more closely associate with. For me, I like to keep it as positive as possible.

    i don't see anything as heavy as feminism, etc. in women doing this.

    i've had circles of friends in which this term was used affectionately. i never had to ask why. i just knew that it was meant to separate me from others who wouldn't be able to say it to them without retribution or anger.

    thereby making it just one more way to express the closeness of the friendship. "you're one of the exceptions to the usual rule."

    it's just one more way people show others that they're 'special' in some way. much like how guys do the same when they greet their friends with similar 'insults'.

    Those are insulting terms...it's not normally viewed as a positive thing if you tell someone they're being bitchy, or bitching! That was kind of my point.
