I can't see why it would be considered tremendously funny
but that obviously could just be blamed on my upbringing

Erm, definitely not a fan.
Unfortunately it got a lot of negative baggage over the years, so whenever I read it, I think of the demeaning towards women meaning of the word.

The results were surprising: the graph above suggests that 6,367,619,884 out of every 6,367,619,885 people in the world are not Dave Chappelle, and therefore should shut the hell up.
LOL! That's some funny stuff.

The guy that wrote that article has some unresolved issues about high school...other than that I was with him/her about the use of that catch phrase.

The word bitch really doesn't bother me though. There are far more horrible words used to insult woman. (the "C" word, for example)

I don't like the word too much. Well I don't like much curse words.

I do like the song "Smack my bitch up tho"

I hate to be called that But some of those songs are funny, like Outkast's song that goes "crazy bitch, stupid bitch, ol' dumbass bitch"

If anyone is going to get insulting though, get it right. Women are 'bitches', men are 'assholes.' To me, there are no male bitches or female assholes. But only if they're mean of course

Exactly ... there is no equivalent word for a man.

Here's the problem with the word. In it's original sense, bitch is used to refer to a female dog. By calling a woman a bitch, you are equating her with a dog--an animal. Something you own ... something you domesticate ... something you control.

While this comparison is not something consciously thought of, the comparison is still there nonetheless.

When someone calls a man a bitch, it is often done so to express dominance (i.e., "You're my bitch."). The same comparison is there when you call a woman a bitch.

hmm, what is the ''C'' word? I'm guessing it's ''cunt" but I am not sure. If it is, what does it mean and why is it so bad?

That is the word, I'd assume. It is arguably one of the worst words in the English language and more offensive than 'bitch' as it is not only derogatory, but completely lacking in class and respect with it's actual meaning. Google the meaning if you like, or even try www.dictionary.com for the proper meaning.

I personally find it one of the worst words and I have no qualms about swearing like a trooper. I'd ask that people respect that many share my views and we don't sidetrack into a free-for-all with this and post descriptions. We dont need it here. This thread can easily be closed if needed.

I don't know about equivalent, but over here, it's bitch for a woman and bastard for a man. Although men don't really use the word bitch - it's more an insult used by women to insult other women
