Today young men call other men, "bitch". Not too long ago, "bitch" only applied to women. What happened? Why?
When did "bitch" start applying to males?
|by Anonymous||reply 55||08/15/2013|
I noticed this too, OP.
Who gave the go-ahead for this inclusionary aspersion?
|by Anonymous||reply 1||06/20/2013|
Languages evolve now bitch means something more equivalent to being a "pussy" or a "chicken".
Like, "are you seriously done drinking after one beer? Quit being such a little bitch."

I don't think so, R1. Watch Breaking Bad. Jesse calls males bitch all the time.

Gay men have been calling each other "bitch" for at least the last four decades. I have a friend with whom I can have an entire conversation just calling each other bitch. It lasts for ten or twenty minutes, and hits every emotional note.
It's kind of like (straight) "bros" calling each other "dude."

I've heard gay men use this term since the Pleistocene era. And cunt as well.

On Father's Day, one of my oh-so-macho nephews called his brother a bitch. It sounded so gay, I had to laugh.

My sister and her husband call their teenage son "Mitch" - short for Man-bitch - when he is in a pissy mood.

I notice a lot of people still stay beeaaytch. Maybe because it doesn't sound as harsh if you say it that way.

Well. I don't like it. That's like calling the woman a "dick."

We won't let them use gay slurs anymore so they had to improvise.

R11, calling someone "a bitch" is completely different from calling them by the loving, tongue-in-cheek pet name "Bitch." Two different things entirely.

It's a safe alternative to the N-word which white people can't use.

Or then there's the ubiquitous "you guys", which applies to everyone from tiny babies, teenagers, business executives or little old ladies having tea together in a restaurant. Just a further dumbing down of the culture. (By using "you guys" or "bitch", the tiny pea brains inherent in most Americans don't even have to consider who they're talking to.)

No, not all gay men. If someone is using bitch, you can figure the person saying that is a nellie queen.
|by Anonymous||reply 26||06/20/2013|
I agree, r26.

I think OP is referring to its use outside of gay circles.

R26 What a whimperer.

R26 can't even spell "nelly." Correct spelling would be too queeny for him (or as he would say, "queenie").

A few years ago, someone commented that the person calling everyone "bitches" deserves a nasty reply. It appears that some people do that but it's really not worth the bother. OTOH, if they're asking for information from "bitches" it's fun to provide misinformation.

I love when I hear a straight guy call another guy "bitch" in spite, very funny. Straight guys don't go out of their way to use "bitch" on other guys. So when they do it's usually very warranted to describe the bitch ass male's behavior.

It started in the early 80s, thanks to the popularity of "Dynasty."

Part of it is hip hop culture, which calls dudes "bitch" also. Also, note that the word "dude" applies to females now.

It was back in 1857, when the very first ka-ween, Eustopher St. Claire, disciplined his little lap dog, Fifi.
In a burst of frustration, he turned to the purebred dog and said, "Bitch, PLEASE!"

It became popular with Entourage. "Hug it out, bitch!". It was always around, but much more so when that show made the phrase popular.

R2 thinks she has cited something worth bothering us with. (Yes, a dangling preposition is good English.)
The heterosexual-male use of bitch in situations that are not pushing for a fight is indicative of the gay-ing of straight males. They have adopted every stereotype of gay males in dress (hyper-attention to dress, "street" looks, metrosexing, posing, quote-talking, invocation of female phrases) except taste, intelligence and the detachment of camp awareness.
