Examples of BITCH

That word is a bitch to spell.
tiresome members of the tour group who had one bitch after another

Recently I have been called out twice for calling someone a bitch. 

Now I’ll adnit it.  I speak very plainly here and with passion which sometimes does include cursing.  I have called Men , Tony Perkins, Bryan Brown, and Joe Solmonee a BITCH.  I have called Maggie Gallager and Michelle Bac\hman a BITCH and I never heard a word.  But recently in a heated post I made about Rea Carey of the NGLTF and the total waste that she and her organization had been over the past two years wasting what little time that we had to make LGBT advances I called her a BITCH.  And viola!  Suddenly I am a MISOGYNIST asshole. 

Now I will freely admit I can be an asshole. But all of a sudden, because I called a lesbian a “bitch” I am a misogynist that hates all women?  That’s just a bit of a stretch don’t you think?  And a bit of a double standard.  How many women out there say “you bitch” to another woman?  Or if a woman says “I feel like such a bitch today, or if you called Joan Collins character on “Dynasty” a bitch does that make them misogynist?

 In some cases are wemaybe  getting too UBER PC? 

If a woman calls a man a “prick” or a “dick” or worse a “scumbag” does that mean she hates all men?  Should we as a male race be offended?  Is that woman  ‘misandrist’. Greek roots ‘mesein’ (“to hate”)/’misos’ (“hatred”) and ‘andr’ (“man”).

ANYONE who read that post could see clearly that I used the word bitch not as an attack on the entire female species.  Should I have not cursed?  YES. I probably should have found another word.  Not for the fact of misogyny but for better writing.  But  I was angry.  I AM ANGRY.  At what Rea Carey and the NGLTF and Joe Solmonese of of HRC  for not doing their job and wasting what little opportunity they had. while collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars and selling us up the river.

If I did offend, I mean TRULY offended people out there by calling Rea a BITCH and you REALLY TRULY BELIEVE  it was an attack on ALL women I am sorry.  It was not meant that way.  And I suggest that you go back and read the original post and you’ll see that.

In the end what can I say.  I’m just one angry HOMO.

Now I suppose I am anti-gay and a homophobic too.  *siiigh*

End Of Rant.
