It seems to me there is something wrong in this world when a network not once, but twice, finds it acceptable to use the BITCH word in program titles in reference to women. To me, the B word is as much a pejorative as slut.
In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, it’s ABC’s recent and upcoming premieres of GBC (aka GOOD CHRISTIAN BITCHES) and DON’T TRUST THE B—- IN APARTMENT 23 (their strikeout, not mine).
So I guess I’m wondering, why isn’t there more of a hue and cry over this derogatory term being applied to women? In fact, why do some women call themselves BITCHES as a way to bond? A search of the Internet revealed quite a few sites aimed at women using the B word.
How do you feel about the use of the B word to describe women? Offensive? If you do find it offensive, maybe take a moment to tweet #IamnotaB @GBC @Apt23 to let ABC know or click here to visit ABC.COM and send them a message.
I’m looking forward to hearing your comments on this!
