"Bitch Lab" "Bitch PhD" bitch bitch bitch ... Why is feminism so absorbed in the bitch personae? Are bitches really more independant and liberated than non-bitches? If a guy calls his daughter a bitch, is this now a compliment? Very strange.

The Happy Feminist

I can't speak for Dr. B or for Bitch Lab, but I think the idea is to reclaim a misogynist slur and recast it as a positive. Kind of like the n-word.

But, if you I were you, I wouldn't call a woman "a bitch" and expect a warm reception.
