The word "bitch" is a gender based slur and detrimental to females- no matter the sex of the speaker. I am sorry to see it front and center on the photograph for this post. Could have done without the graphics.

Yeah, I had some trepidation about posting the article complete with the graphic, which depicts the cover of a magazine that is readily available at all kinds of check-out counters in all kinds of stores, including organic food co-ops! I hate the word, though I love the idea of reclaiming it, much as we have reclaimed words like "dyke" and "queer" in the face of their use as slurs against us. So, six of one, I guess. In any case, thanks for your comment, and I hope you'll keep engaging. Best, CG
