I don’t understand people so much anymore. Maybe it is the times, maybe it is the medium, but whatever it is, people have really changed!

Back “in the day”, one cared about what people thought of them.  One’s character and reputation was everything.  Now – well, not so much.

What brings this rant on is Social Media – i.e. facebook.  Every day, there is at least ONE post on my wall regarding being a “Bitch”.

You know the ones:

“IF BY BITCH YOU MEAN…..” ending with some explanation that makes being known as a bitch a good thing.

I am here to tell you, ladies, “BITCH” is not a good thing.  Because I love Merriam-Webster, I will share what this book has as the definition of bitch:

Definition of BITCH

1
: the female of the dog or some other carnivorous mammals
2
a: a lewd or immoral womanb: a malicious, spiteful, or overbearing woman —sometimes used as a generalized term of abuse
3
: something that is extremely difficult, objectionable, or unpleasant
4

If you get NOTHING ELSE from this, please get this….. you can be witty, outspoken, intelligent, strong willed and – yes – even a bit unpleasant and still NOT be a bitch. One thing separates the two – TACT!!

I’m just sayin’….
