I feel like I need to teach a class in being a bitch. Seriously, ladies, and gentlemen, too; every single one of us has been screwed over because we were too nice. Stop being nice RIGHT NOW. Your energy as a parent is not about "nice", it's about being competent. Fuck "nice" in the face with a stick. You can be nice when you have plenty of resources and energy to spare; until then, you are a stone cold bitch with a lock on your door and a heart that only has love for your babies and your SUPPORTIVE friends/family. Everyone else can GTFO your doorstep.

Sad fact is, in this society women get called "bitches" just for having and enforcing reasonable boundaries, and we FEAR being called "bitch", so that stops us from standing up for our own needs and best interests. When you lose that fear, you become a stronger and more effective person, and not only that, but you attract other strong and effective people who respect that. Do not fear being a "bitch"!

1.  Feel free to repost my rant there, and

2.  Fear of The Bitch is no excuse for getting walked on.

Hi, my name is The Good Reverend Roger, and I'm a great big jerk.  People often ask me WHY I'm a jerk, but I usually just crap all over them in response, because...Well, "jerk".  But today, I thought I'd make my case for why I'm a jerk, and why many of YOU should be jerks.

1.  I am not required to tolerate passive-aggressive backhanded sniping.  If you wish to tell me that I'm a fucking jerk, just DO IT.  There's no need to follow me around making snide little comments, like a great big pussy.  Nobody should have to put up with that.

2.  God KNOWS I hate people, and he put me on a planet with 7.3 billion of you assmonkeys.  I should be compensated for this.

3.  I am old and cranky.  I take pills to maintain even the semblance of civility that you fuckers have experienced.

4.  I am ALSO the most compassionate, caring, and kindly bag of shit you jackasses will EVER see, once you're out from under the wing of your parents.  Compared to the bosses, co-workers, and/or university professors you are about to experience, I am the next thing to Mahatma fucking Gandhi.  Just think of me as your introduction to what's waiting for you around life's corner, holding a bat with a nail through it and giggling like a low-grade moron.

5.  The English have a saying, "Keep being their cunt, and they'll keep fucking you."  WORDS TO LIVE BY.

6.  The poet ee cummings once wrote "There is some shit I will not eat."  ALSO WORDS TO LIVE BY.

7.  As you get older, if you CAN'T be a jerk to people who run up to you DEMANDING it, you will get ulcers, high blood pressure, heart problems, and you will begin to resemble a door mat.

8.  Jerks don't get bothered much.  "Reasonable people" are life's chew toy.

9.  As you get older, your capacity to listen to the tales of woe from dumbfucks will diminish.  Do not fight this, or you will be the crying towel for every useless son of a bitch that comes down the pike, whimpering excuses as to why their fucked up life isn't their fault.

10.  FUCK 'EM IF THEY CAN'T TAKE A JOKE.

That is all.  You may now return to your regularly scheduled Holist thread.

Venomously yours and SHUT UP,
TGRR

Finally someone who actually enjoys me smacking people with giant rubber dicks!

As a person slowly learning how not to be a doormat and the balance between "My heart bleeds for everybody" and "Everybody is a horrible asshole and can fuck right off, I thought this was was all pretty sound advice.

It's all about establishing boundaries.  In today's world "having set boundaries" = "jerk".

And if you have to choose, you're really better of being considered a jerk rather than everyone's personal toilet.

This is FANTASTIC! 

I've recently have had to have been conscious about my boundaries.  I do tech support, right, and if I don't hold people accountable to their own computers, they'll sit back and even ask me to create a link on their desktop for them....I shit you not.

I had a heated situation where I was really only partially responsible for a rather minor fuckup...but I could very CLEARLY see how if I didn't specifically outline what the fuck is up, she would have taken me for a ride. 

I also think she was smart enough to know that you don't fuck with the wait staff and you don't fuck with tech support...the former will spit in your food and the later will shit in your desktop.

People like to shit on server support.  Company I work for likes to mess with people's hours and salary.  I really don't know how certain websites, banks, transportation systems, etc manage to stay up and running.  Just one day someone is going to snap, and simply shut down everything.

So far we just get bathroom issues and conference room sabotage.  Though I guess the conference room sabotage was also a bathroom issue.

I was thinking about exactly this not too long ago. Among the wide variety of things that are fucked up about the way society treats women, the fact that a woman may have to resort to accepting the label of "bitch" just so she can justify drawing a line in the goddamn sand once in a fucking while is gross.

Weirdly enough, when a man does that, it's called "not being a bitch."

So the definition of what being a "bitch" is changes depending on what's most degrading to women.

Don't kid yourself. A guy does it he's called a cunt or a fucking bastard. Woman does it at least she's called something that's her own gender. The trick, for either gender, is to take the label and own it. Some whiny little fuck totally loses their shit at me and resorts to "you're nothing but a cunt" I've won. Fuckhead has finally worked me out. Do not fuck with my beach scribbles or you'll find out just how much of a cunt I'm more than happy to be.

That's a hell of a good observation! Never really  thought about that before. Wow.

Well that's probably a matter of whom you're telling to not cross your line. :lulz:  If someone's being inconvenienced or not getting what they want because of a line drawn (by a man), then they call him a cunt.

An outside observer will more likely praise the man for not "being a bitch," i.e. for not rolling over and submitting.

Maybe it's just a difference in colloquialisms across the pond, or I'm just being obtuse about what I mean (totally possible). Calling a man a bitch here implies that he is weak and submissive, while calling a woman a bitch implies that she is being selfish and/or obstinate.

Now there's a bit of context-based language I'd hate to have to explain to a non-native speaker. :lol:

I get where you're coming from but I'm pretty sure the bolded part would apply to a woman, too. The butthurt fucker on the receiving end will always resort to calling the guy or girl something shit. i'd expect the outside observer to be on the side of a woman, just as much.

Look at the he's a bitch/ she's a bitch from another angle. When a woman is compassionate and understanding of others feelings, she's considered just a nice person, when a guy behaves like that he's a pussy. It's a two way street from where I'm sitting.
