    It's extremely offensive to call a woman a bitch. It is less offensive to say that somebody is being bitchy. The terms bitch and bitchy are usually directed at women but I believe that some gay men call each other bitches, I don't know if this is meant offensively or not.
    I don't really know what the term jerk means, as far as I know it's mainly Americans who use it.
