In a recent article in the Guardian (UK) titled “Bring Back the Red-Blooded B*tch,” Julie Burchill disappointedly explains that the modern-day b*tch has lost her bite. She seems to think that today's women won't be honest in their criticisms or complaints for fear of being labeled the B word. She writes, "These days, b*tching is low fat, decaffeinated, and kick free. Worse than that, it is, above all, phoney."
Her argument is pretty compelling; there's something to be said for a woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind, even if it means making an enemy or two, but I’d like to think that some of us prefer to offer our criticisms with a kind hand because we do care about other’s feelings, not just their perception of us. What do you think?
