I'm curious on other people's point of view on this. It really bothers me when I hear women/girls calling each other words like b*tch, skank, ho, etc. in a slang or term of endearment sort of way. I understand that this may becoming more of a norm, but really, how can anyone think this is a compliment? We should be calling our friends their name, or lady, "my friend," or really any other term of endearment. It just seems that when we make it acceptable or the norm to use such derogatory language that it isn't a compliment at all, but rather a put down to our entire gender. If we continue to normalize this kind of speech, we allow men to do the same. Please remember to respect yourself and your friends. Don't allow this language creep to its way into your daily speech in how you refer to your friends and yourself. Thanks all!
