    Is Bitch offensive?

    Some people say that the word 'bitch' today does not have a strong offensive coloring and in some way is complimenting. Now 'bitch' stands for a sexy young female. Is that right?

    No, it is not right in civilized and polite society or conversation. The only time the term "bitch" is not offensive is if you are talking about a female dog.

    In hip-hop culture, "ho" (whore) and "bitch" (self-explanatory) are macho words for women, but are clearly derogatory. So, they are very offensive. Unless you're a male who sadly subscribes the the hip-hop culture bias against women.
