There was a time in my life when being called a “bitch” would have offended and hurt me very much. Now is not that time. It took years, but I finally learned that, while the word “bitch” can certainly be a truly negative thing, most of the time people use it incorrectly. Most people call a woman a bitch when she is taking charge, speaking up for herself or those around her, having an unpopular opinion, acting like a tough leader, being assertive, or having a lot of self-esteem… basically, when a woman is acting like a man. The word “bitch” can mean someone who is being rude, nasty, and horrible (and it definitely sometimes does mean that!), but most of the time, it means a girl is acting in a way society does not expect her to act.
All of that is to say that we all have our bitchy moments. Sometimes they’re nothing to be ashamed of (acting like a boss is a good thing!), and sometimes they’re admittedly a little too mean. It happens. Some of us embrace the label and proud to say we’re bitchy (is this where the term “bad bitch” came from?), and many of those people are on Tumblr. Of course they are. Here are 20 Tumblr posts that perfectly describe you when you’re bitchy. Social media just gets it, y’all.
