    So telling someone to chill and giving them a hug is catty?? Good thing I didn't let rip. and MiLF (my pet name for her) does love her the sound of her own voice.. but I find it endearing.. Only the best get pet names in my world.. would you like a squishy hug too?

    I may be completely off on this, but I think the emergence of these kinds of terms comes from a sense of female camaraderie. Females feel increasingly empowered to express there sexuality and feminine ego, and the use of inflammatory terms like "bitch" or "skanky ho" is a manifestation of this empowerment.

    I view it as a subtle way for females to mock the silly, negative associations that are made (by both men and other women) with females possessing nontraditional female characteristics (overtly sexual, bold, aggressive, successful, etc.).

    If a female is a CEO, she only got there because she's a conniving bitch. If a female openly enjoys sex, then she's a slut. So terms like "bitch" and "skanky ho" are a backlashing mockery of these kind of unjust associations. Women allow these blows to the feminine ego to ricochet by sarcastically admitting to them among each other, thereby belittling their harm altogether.

    A girl goes out on the town in a sexy outfit, and she's complimented by her friend with "Wow, girl! Skank-ay!" because both women know, on some [unconscious?] level (due to the repeated, increasing societal use of these kinds of expressions among females), what this kind of term means. It's an expression of approval, admiration, and female pride: you're sexy tonight, so people are going to think you're slutty, but that negative association with sexy --> slutty is stupid, so let's just invalidate its harm to us by mocking it.

    Maybe it can be compared to "nigga" as a friendly term among African Americans? (Errr, I may be saying something offensive. My knowledge of racial issues is a bit limited, so I apologize in advance).

    It's tasteless and tacky. And makes the women who do it look tasteless and tacky, not "empowered." How many men go around "reclaiming" the word asshole? Learn from their dignity.

    btw, I am not emotionally invested in the topic and I find it a rather boring issue, probably won't come back to the thread.

    About 90% of my man friends, that's who. Dignity, my ass. In fact, I called my boyfriend asshole just a few minutes ago and he laughed and called me a flaming bitch. I was touched.

    Don't make a blanket statement about men as though they don't affectionately talk shit about each other or throw insults around endearingly. That just means the ones you know don't do it.
    Never wrestle with a pig. You will get dirty and the pig will enjoy it.

    I think I can sum this thread up nicely with the following:

    You're a bitch, I'm a bitch. We are all bitches here (unless you feel offended by the word "bitch" in which case you are a nice person).

    As for any connection with the pornification of women, no, I don't see that at all.

    Yes, let's empower ourselves as women by learning from male "dignity."

    I think Pettycure pretty much said it all.

    Tasteless according to what?

    I never said that women do it to "look" empowered (ie, appear empowered to others). They do it as a manifestation of feeling empowered.

    Your men:asshole analogy is a bit weak. Asshole (unlike bitch or ho) is neither a masculine insult nor an insult geared at men who feel empowered by escaping male oppression. Thus "reclaiming" that term as a manifestation of affection, camaraderie, and male egoism/pride would be kind of moot. Anybody can be an asshole. Only women are called bitches and hos.

    And I'm not meaning to imply that the use of terms like bitch and ho is sophisticated, dignified, or even commendable. However, before we go so far as to write off the use of those terms as "tasteless", it might be worth evaluating why the (relatively recent) connotation of those terms has emerged in the first place (perhaps, like I said, as a manifestation of female empowerment, something that I personally believe is anything but "tasteless").

    Lolz.

    I'll smack your ass as a form of praise, if you smack mine! And then we can have a farting competition and neglect to change our bedsheets for 8 months.

    That will surely earn us each 5 more dignity points.
