woman regarded as being a spiteful-tongued, overbearing shrew. According to the Oxford English Dictionary , bitch acquired its taboo status in the 19 th century, during the Victorian era. More recently, probably because so many people have taken the stand that all bad things can't be all bad and some bad things are gooood, bitch sometimes drop its offensive edge to become complimentary. Example: Austin Powers 2 (1999): ' I'm am a sexy bitch.'
(1) Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer) to Batman (Michael Keaton) in Batman Returns (1992): ' I'm a woman and can't be taken for granted. Life's a bitch, now so am I.'
(2) Mr. Blonde/Vic (Michael Madsen) in Reservoir Dogs (1992): ' If you're talking like a bitch I'm gonna slap you like a bitch. '
(3) Charles Panati. Sexy Origins and Intimate Things (1998): 'Linguists are not certain why "bitch" passed from being a benign word, often an endearment, to a taboo. Some theorize that its explosive sound made it ideal for firing off as a slur. The psycholinguistics of all curse words require that they carry maximal energy on minimal sound, a spiked waveform characteristic of consonants. This gives the word energetic punch, making it ''explosive. The word "bitch" was first recorded as a verb, "to chronically complain about something", in 1823.'
(4) Eve (Alicia Silverstone) to Adam (Brendan Fraser) in Blast From the Past (1999): ' She's got bitch written all over her.'
2)Some woman who is the leader of everybody because she stepped on all the competition to get there.
3)It is a very degrading word that is tossed around as to offend somebody.
4)A word that is tossed around between friends to show that you are good friends who can take a compliment and an insult from each other and still be friends.
