Do you know how to use the word bitch? You might be surprised, come join Frandy and Keiran discuss some of the common uses of the word "bitch" and its derivatives.

Introduction 

 

So today I'm really happy to have uh I guess what I could call an old friend of mine on the podcast. I used to teach English with this guy at an ESL school in Montreal. Frandy why don't you introduce yourself tell them a bit about who you are.

F: Ok, so ,uhhh I'm a teacher, I taught English at different ESL schools around the world. Uh first and foremost I'm based in Montreal. Born and raised, uh that's where I teach now. But I used to teach in Japan, Korea, and China.

K: Alright cool man, so how long have you been teaching for?

 

F: Uh I've been teaching for the last uh 10 years now, 10 years, it's been 10 years.

K: Wow that's a long time.

F: Yeah that's too much.

K: Alright

*laughter*

F: And were still doing it.

K: OK so today we're going to talk about different ways you can use the word bitch.

F: Bitch

K: But before we start off let me get your opinion, bitch, is bitch a curse word today? Or is bitch acceptable in general conversation?

F: I think bitch is accepted in general conversation when were talking about somebody who is detestable, someone who is not a nice person all around. And usually it's a woman. But it's not a curse word per se, I think it's more accepted now then it used to be.

K: Right, I agree with you, like if you said this 40 years ago people might have been like "Ohhh oh my gosh"

F: Yeah, you used to, you used to not be able to say that on TV. In the 90s I heard when people said the word bitch people were like oh my god yeah, it's crazy.

K: Alright so let's start off with what you said, bitch, bitch is generally the most common way to use  it, which is to refer to uhh usually a women who is a cold unfriendly person right?

F: Yeah, an unlikeable person, somebody who you don't want to hang out with or talk to, or somebody who doesn't want to talk to anybody and is an asshole all around.

K: Right so I could say oh I went to the party the other day, and I tried to talk to this women but she was just so unfriendly, and she was kinda rude and short with everyone

F:  yeah

K: That woman was a bitch.

F: Yeah, exactly, yeah.

K: How would, can you give me another sentence to show them how we could use it.

F: Ummmmm, like somebody who is insensitive, like for example if  ummm uh if somebody says oh did you see that ummm Keiran just I don't know he gained he gained a lot of weight over the holidays, he's fat now. Hey wait don't be such a bitch. You know there's better ways of saying it, you don't have to be a bitch about it.

K: Yeah right, right right

F: An insensitive person, an uncaring person, an unlikeable person all around is usually a bitch. 

K: Sometimes we joke about like oh Jennifer has been such a bitch lately, I bet you she hasn't gotten laid recenlty.

F: hahaha, true. Somebody who is very short, short tempered, or not who is like I dunno unlikeable. In recent days or as usual I dunno.

K: Right

F: Some people are just bitches all the time. And some people become bitches over a period of time for some reason.

K: right

K: Ok but bitch as referring to a woman is not the only way were going to use the word bitch right? There's other ways.

F: Yeah, there are other ways of using the word bitch, or or a derivadiv like bitchin, or uhhhh

k: so wait what do you mean by bitchin, like somebody who is being cold and mean to everyone?

F: Ummm yeah some people for example like somebody who is complainin, somebody who bitches about things so..

K: Right, so I could say oh Steve is always bitchin about his wifi connection but he wont pay for a new one.

F: Yeah, exactly. Like he he complains not always for no reason, but he complains in an annoying way like in a way that people don't want to hear about it. right?

K: Right, like every day, in the morning, my wife she'll  come up to me and start bitchin because  I at her pizza that was in the fridge last night and she's really upset about it. 

F: Really? So she bitches about it?

K: Yeah, she bitches about, yeah well I mean that's probably something that's justified if it was  her pizza.

F: Yeah I guess

K: She could probably bitch about that

F: Well  it depends who paid for it.

*laughter*

F: Sometimes you're entitled

K: Yeah thats a good point.

F: Yeah I guess, are there any other ways of using the word bitch other than for a person who complains or...

K:Well let's give another example, you give me an example of somebody who complains by using the word bitch. Like, maybe in your life who's somebody who's always bitching about friend.

F: Usually like my um female friends, they always they always complain about uh their boyfriends. Or I dunno they complain about like guys in general, like they met a guy on tinder and it didn't work out. 

K: So they're bitching like, oh my god I went out with this guy last night and he's not returning my text and I thought 

F: Yes

K: we were in love , what's happening

F: Uh yeah that's exactly it. They bitch about men, about men's behaviour or men not calling them. Stuff like that, that sucks. 

K: Right 

F: Like I hate hearing about that shit. 

K: Alright so we can use bitch to talk about people who are whinny or people who complain about things. right?

F: Yes

K: I guess that would be a good, not a synonym, but when you're bitching about something you're kinda whining about something right?

F: Yes,  You're whining uh, you're it's like some sort of unwanted complain. That people around you don't want to hear. It's not a, it's not a complaint that's usually it's not a complain thats justified or in other peoples eyes it's not justified.

K: Yeah it's something you should handle yourself and not project all your negative energy onto other people right?

F: YEs, exactly, for example people who bitch on Facebook about their boyfriends or about their wives. Like if you want to talk to me about it you can just send me a message don't bitch about it on your wall on Facebook or something like that, I don't want to know.

K: Ok let's keep going to the last one we're going to do today. We said bitch is a cold unfriendly woman, bitching is to complain about stuff

F: Yes 

K: lastly we can use also bitchin, to mean something just fucking cool right?

F: Yeah exactly that's completely the opposite, we talked about two negatives, it also has a positive meaning. Like when you're uh, when you want to say the word cool or awesome you say the word bitchin. 

K: Ohhh like Frandy has a bitchin computer

F: Exactly, or like tomorrow we're going to the beach, cool bitchin! Bitchin were going to the bitch

*laughing*

K: We're going to the bitchin beach to find bitches

F: Exactly, I got confused with bitch, beach and yeah bitches. Yeah so that's true. Oh actually there's another, well yeah let's finish this one first.

K: Yeah let's stick with bitchin first uhh, like 

F: Cause I just thought about one thing more.

K: My friend he got a car, he bought a second hand car and its looked like crap. But he put a lot of money into it, a nice paint job he got some rims, and now he has a bitchin car. 

F: Yeah his car is bitchin, his car is cool, it's awesome, it's nice, it's really nice.

K: Yeah originally it was a piece of crap, but now it's bitchin.

F: Exactly. 

K: Do you have any personal items that you think are bitchin, no?

F: Umm, hmmmm uhhhhh well at home I have a bitchin computer, uhh, well I don't want to brag, but I have a big iMac that's pretty new and stuff. To me it's a bitchin computer.

K: Right, yes.

F: But some people might bitch about it cause it's a mac and they like pc or whatever. I don't want to confuse you guys, haha, 

K: Yeah or were going to get into the whole computer war right? 

F: Yeah

K: Alright cool, let's move on to the last thing,  you said you just thought of it on the spot.

F: Yes, umm, that's more like, that's the only one I think is more derogative. Like people might see as an insult or as being offensive.

K: wait wait, i'm confused what are we talking about?

F: The word bitch

K: Ok

F: To refer to women in general, for example, rappers say there's a lot of bitches at the mall, let's go get some bitches.

K: Right but I think now, I think now it's becoming more acceptable you know like you can say..

F: Like in music, in music. 

K: Like you can say my girlfriend is a sexy bitch right? 

F: Yes, that's true

K: that's not negative

F: That's not negative, it depends on the context, but it depends, if its your girlfriend I guess people might accept it more because she's yours. your your your together

K: I don't own her but were together

F: Yeah you dont own her you didn't brand her like a cow, but she's your girlfriend

K: yeah

F: She might appreciate you calling her a sexy bitch right but if you called girlsbitches in general just to refer to a woman, that might be seen as offensive. 

K: Right but you know sometimes people refer, like if I'm meeting the comics I'm going to run a show with later today, like before the show we all meet outside and I'm like what's up bitches

F: Yes, yes

K: Like I'm not putting them down. It's just another way to greet.. you have to be close to these people right

F: It's true. Yeah exactly it all depends on the context, its like the N word or whatever, but I mean were not gettin in to that, but I mean like um it could be used as a term of endearment to your friends or your girlfriend or like best friends. 

K: Right

F: But if you're talking in general like people that you don't know, do you see these bitches out there, they're so cute

K: yeah

F: If somebody overhears you that doesn't know you very well they might take it the wrong way.

K: Yeah

F: But yeah you can use it as a term of endearment, to refer to friends, girlfriends, or best friends. 

K: But if they take it the wrong way. They are taking it the wrong way cause you don't mean anything bad. You mean look at those cute girls.

F: Yeah but it might be misconstrued. But it's not a bad thing if you don't mean it in a bad way.

K: Right

F: So I just wanted to put this in before we wrap things up guys, what Frandy said is completely true. When my wife and daughter came to Mongolia to Canada I actually made a sign, usually the sign people make at the airport for their loved ones "like welcome home John" but I wrote on my sign, I wrote "Sexy Mongolian Bitches"

*laughter*

K: And I went to the airport with it and it was fun

F: What?!

K: And it was fine, it was hilarious, people were looking and my mom is so old fashioned, she was ashamed of it.

F: Oh

K: She hid it and then my wife was like, where's that sign, I love it. I want the sign back.

F: Yeah she she found the sign bitchin.

K: Right, it was a bitchin sign. The bitchin sign was bitching because it was about sexy bitches.

F: Yeah

K: referring to her

F: See and like his wife was ok with it.

K: Right

F: Cause she knows him, she knows how he talks and stuff. Yeah but if it were me picking her up at the airport she maybe have been like what the fuck is wrong with this guy. 

K: Yeah yeah, alright so let's wrap this up, today, the first thing we said was bitch, the more commonly known wor, which means,

F: Which means an unlikeable woman or a woman that is

K: Unfriendly

F: unfriendly or cold

K: Secondly we talked about the activity of bitchin which is...

F: complainin, complaining, bitchin about things that are going wrong with your life or just complaining in a way that people don't want to hear you complain.

K: Right, the girls are always bitchin about the guys who don't call them back. Or vice versa.

F: Or vice versa. Guys are bitching about girls.

K: ok, then the last, oh we had three, we had two more, the third one was 

F: Bitchin

K: Something was bitchin

F: Bitchin. Yeah and be careful with that word, it's not bitching, its bitchin, it ends with an N, its a slang word. 

K: Like Frandy said he had an bitchin Imac at home. 

F: Yeah, bitchin, 

K: Or my friend, he renovated his, renovated, he suped up his car and now it's a bitchin car. 

F: Yes, a bitchin car, yeah.

K: Alright, and the last one we used was bitches

F: yes, like as a term, to refer to people as women or friends. Best friends, girlfriends. So either in a derogatory way like talking about women and just refer to them as bitches. or calling your friend, hey my bitch, your my bitch, your my sexy bitches to refer to people that you care about. 

K: Right

F: As a term of endearment. 

K: And you can do that as long as their your friends. 

F: Yes

K: If you do it to a stranger:

F: Yes

K: You might get in trouble.

F: yes you might, you will get in trouble.

K: Alright, alright great well thanks Frandy for coming on here and helping us out. 

F: no problem, whenever
