I hate that phrase or nickname with all the power in my being - more like I hate it so much it's like flames coming out of my head.
Why is it, if a girl is skinnier, she is a skinny bitch?
Several people have thrown this phrase around to me. And many times I just want to bark back: I'm not that skinny! I'd say I'm slim; but I'm not so skinny that you can throw the words at me as a cutdown. And what exactly does it mean?
Am I a automatically a bitch because I'm skinnier (slimmer) than the person using the phrase? One phrase user told me, it's not that I'm a bitch, it's just how the phrase is.
So what if I turned it around? Fat Bitch.
The word that I would be chastised for is not 'bitch', but 'fat'. Because how dare I call someone fat? And for the record, I never would, but if they can get away with calling me skinny and the opposite word for that is fat, I think that should be the fair trading. No?
But let me tell you, the moment that word leaves my mouth, we would have a problem. Someone just called someone fat.
And let me tell you, I already know what the consequences are. For starters, I'd definitely be the skinny bitch that just called someone fat. Chew on that.
Then, I'd be the one who used the derogatory word of fat. Then, I'd be viewed as someone who thinks they are better than the fat bitch.
And I would never call anyone fat. Seriously. So what other recourse do I have?
None really applies and none I would throw around to any of my friends as a nickname. So why is skinny bitch just? Why?
And who the F started it - that's my real question. Because the only people that tend to throw it around are other women. I never hear a man calling me a skinny bitch. And I never hear boys calling each other, "buff bastard" or "slim son of a bitch".
I don't mind the occasional playful 'bitch' when I do something crazy or warranting of the word thrown at me. For some reason, skinny bitch isn't playful to me at all. My feelings aren't hurt. I don't feel cut down. But I do feel as if it's a huge double standard.
What do you think? Do you use that phrase and why? Maybe I can get a better understanding of it if I knew.
