    Guess I'm echoing disregard.

    It's the people you hang with that help or hurt your development.

    It's never acceptable for anyone to call you a bitch, no matter how you're behaving. I can't tolerate that word.

    I don't think you were echoing me with your post Anja, but I agree with you that it is important to either put toxic people in their place or get them out of your life.

    Why not? Surely, if someone's a bitch, they should be told so.

    Because there are many other words you could call a woman to get the point across without using her gender as an insult. I don't appreciate being called a bitch because the reason I'm snapping at someone isn't because I'm a woman. It's because I'm being a jerk.

    I've been called cold and insensitive... *shrugs*

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Oh, I didn't even think about that. But what if someone calls me a bitch? What would the appropriate word be for the male-bitch meaning? What I am trying to say is that the female-male differences between words don't mean anything. If I beat my wife, you are welcome to call me wife-beater, even though this word is for males only.

    All negative labels, in my book, are applied for the psychological satisfaction of the user.

    All negative labels reduce a human being to the sum of their behavior without insight into what may be going on under the surface.

    Who has the right to label another? It's arrogant from my perspective. And deliberately hurtful to some.

    What if the perceived bitch is really lonely, angry and frightened? Which she probably is.

    Well, if you tell her that she is lonely angry and frightened, you will possibly break her spine and she'll cry at home and see what a jerk she was. I am now talking about people who should be stopped, not about something like "Oh, she has so expensive dress, I envy her, such a bitch!" I never use these words seriously, but sometimes there really is the need to stop someone causing pain to other people, and in that case one of the possible reactions is to insult the bitch as much as possible.

    Has this exact same conversation not happened before?

    Even down to the 'what's the male version of a bitch?' despite gender based insults having been established as rude and unnecessary.

    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.
