- The word 'B*tch' get's past the swear filter. Why?
The word is used as a derogatory term for women. Would like to know STWs answer as to why it get’s a free pass to be continued to be used.
As is cow, dog, pig, slut, whore, etc, etc none of which are banned.
Writing the word ‘Female dog’ to describe your four legged pet aint that hard
Do you realise how stupid that sounds?Posted 3 years ago
The word is used as a derogatory term for women.
As noted on the other long rambling thread that somehow became about the word “bitch” Bastard is used as a derogatory term for men and gets past. So does cock and nob and quite a few other male-specific swear words that I won’t test the swear filter or the mods patience with.
Or are you suggesting that women should get special treatment in the name of equality?Posted 3 years ago
iscan be used as a derogatory term for women
As can many others, and many words can be used as derogatory terms for lots of different types of people.
I completely agree bitch shouldn’t be used in that context, but derogatory terms shouldn’t be used towards anyone, doesn’t mean those words get filtered out. That’s just silly.Posted 3 years ago
Quite a regular occurrence on this forum, judging by the search I just did.

Looks like a non-problem to me!Posted 3 years ago
You think 1900 hits is a non-problem because some other insults have been used more frequently?
I just note that “bastard”, which is pretty much the male gender equivalent of “bitch”, is used more than three times as often here.
So just focussing on a word that can, in some contexts, be used as a derogatory word for a woman seems a bit bizarre.Posted 3 years agoprawnySubscriber
I’d say bitch used as a derogatory term at a man is more offensive because your basically inferring that females are inferior, calling a woman a bitch is just being offensive, which on occasion is called for. I have no issue with a woman calling me a prick if I deserve it. I also have no issue anyone being called a prick.

If Graham’s working is correct, can I get all upset about the use of bastard in relation to men?
Im pretty sure that its not being used in the context of a child born from an unknown father, but in reference to an unpleasant male.
Or we could just stop looking for things to get mildly upset about for the sake of it.Posted 3 years ago
