Of course it is! It specifically applies to women in a very derogatory way. How else can we interpret that?

The only workplace this word is acceptable in is a kennel. Otherwise, its very unprofessional.

Bull, sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me. So there.

I know that case is a real bitch Joe, but quit bitching and get back to work.

It is so sad and uncivilized when matters of manners are subjects of law. The delicate rose bringing suit truly is a bitch.

A guy walks up to a female teller in a bank and say’s “I’d like to open a F-ing checking account,”

The teller, taken aback , says “excuse me sir.”

The man says “you heard me; I want to open a F-ing checking account.”

The teller calls the manager and explains the situation to him.

The manager walks up to the guy, and says “look here buster, you can’t speak to my employees like that!”

The guy says “I just won $5,000,000 in the lottery and I want to open a F-ing checking account by depositing the check.”

The manager replies, “I’m sorry sir, was this bitch giving you problems?”
