The B**** is back

Just when you thought we were getting cozy with Women's History Month and other niceties, Ellen Snortland of AlterNet dug up for us our pet controversy: that over the B word. Snortland's is a powerful, provocative and convincing argument that if being called a Bitch means you're no more Mrs. Nice Guy, that's as it should be. She says, I would like to see the word "bitch" elevated to its proper place in the English language, transformed from sexist epithet to a word of adoration and awe.
Read the piece, "Is 'bitch' the new Black?", and let us know what you think.
