Listen up! This is an easy one. I am not, have never been and will never be a bitch. I don’t want to be called one by the men in the “old boys club,” or by the frat boys in the pub, or by the brothers hanging on the corners or in the clubs, or by my Girlfriends, or the Queens of Comedy or by Isaiah Thomas. It’s totally unacceptable. No one gets a pass on this one.

I can’t seem to figure out when the use of the word “bitch” became so pervasive, but it’s been out of control for a long time and it's time to put the bitch to rest. Calling a woman a bitch is often hurtful, and mean and never cute or endearing. It’s demeaning and more importantly, it’s not how I want our young girls to start characterizing themselves. R.I.P.
