One of the best and worst things about the English language is how words can have multiple meanings.
While "bitch" isn’t necessarily a word with multiple meanings, its significance varies among everyone.
Most every woman has been called a "bitch," and many women have called other people "bitches." Some people use it lovingly, and others use it hatefully.
In a YouTube video posted by Cut Video, women ranging from ages 15 to 55 were asked to respond to the word "bitch," and the results are fascinating.
There wasn’t a clear distinction between the way different generations reacted, but there were three common answers: The women either felt hurt, degraded or empowered by the word.
Some women thought being a "bitch" was necessary to be taken seriously, and some hated being crudely generalized.
The only real takeaway here? "Bitch" is a loaded word, so be careful how you use it.
