Perhaps it is jealousy, or fear that causes the outburst. I have been known to drop the word (silently, or to friends) when I have experienced, well, bitchiness!
I do think there are bitchy men out there as well as women. I’m sure you may agree with this!
I’m thinking that it is time to re-label the word–make it more of a power word than an unflattering one. Lets make a statement. Like Lady Gaga says “I’m a free bitch, baby!”
Here is a poem for the occasion!
An unkind word, perhaps
Evolving into new meaning
Representing a strong, resistant woman
Confidant and unshakable, someone who
Might make you uncomfortable and resort
To name-calling to stem the underlying
Emotion evoked from the mega-feminine
Persona in control
Causing the word “bitch”
To fall from
Have a wonderful, powerful week!

How true. Men get labeled successful for being tough and strong. I'm with you on needing another word and I enjoyed your poem.Sam
