What exactly was it that you said? Sometimes it's really easy to say something ableist without meaning to.

Did they seriously call you dumb? Because 'dumb' is an obvious ableist term. It means 'unable to speak.'

PFFFT are you joking? Oh my god and I thought they saying I can't use "crazy" anymore because that's ableist was fucked up.

I casually said I want to bitchslap a character. Said character happens to be a 15-year-old female. So obviously I'm a horrible person who hates women and thinks beating children with a leather belt is A-OK. Just because I use the term "bitch". What do they want me to do, use "assholeslap"? Doesn't roll off the tongue as nicely. Plus I think it's enabling non-consensual buttslapping or something.

That's not what "bitch slap" means.

I know what it means. It means the person's behavior warrants an infliction of pain for whatever reason, but that person is too much of an insignificant whiny douchecanoe to deserve a proper punch to the face.

But "bitch" is apparently a terrible word and I'm a terrible person for using it.

Actually this is quickly becoming a Bad Thing That Happened.

Hunh. I always thought it was bitch-slap because the person doing the slapping was doing what women do (slap), because women don't punch. (according to stereotype)

So, if you're bitch-slapping someone, you're the bitch.

There is some argument over whether or not stupid is an ableist term. I do think a good case can be made for it being one. However, 'dumb' absolutely definitely is.

Bitch can be a sexist term, but not always (hence the magazine named 'Bitch.') I can sorta see why someone could be insulted by 'bitchslap,' though in context I doubt I would have noticed it, but if they are using ableist language to do social activism then they FAIL AT EVERYTHING.

Knight slapping is way cooler than bitch slapping, a person recovering from a knight slap will faint seven times when attempting to get back up and even then feel woozy. [/useless contribution]

So the guy came through with my tattoo design. This is the rough sketch...

There is almost no good cussword (and I love me a good cussword) that isn't ~ist of some sort- sexist, misogynist, ableist, fattist, racist, you name it. It's no wonder Cyberwulf resorts to words that have to do with feces.

This annoys me.

So, if you're bitch-slapping someone, you're the bitch.

A bitchslap is when you backhand somebody. Referred to as a "bitchslap" because it's a joke that pimps hit their bitches like that.

It leaves more of an impact, because your knuckles are connecting with their face, instead of the softer area of the palm. Typically done while wearing rings, so that the edge of them cuts the face. It often has the desired outcome of making a person bleed.

Work smarter, not harder.

You got people coming after you because you used a term that refers to a pimp hitting a prostitute, therefore equating the character to a whore that needs to be shown her place.

And for serious, am I the only person in this thread who has lived outside of suburbia? How do you get to be an English-speaking adult and not know what "bitchslap" means, or where it comes from? You've never heard someone say "I will slap you like a bitch", or "Don't make me slap you with my ring hand," as a joke? Really?

I'm convinced most everyone here is middle-class sububanite. Yeah, I've heard it. Never was a suburbanite, though.

Wouldn't trade living in the ghetto with the world, despite its issues.

I knew it as relating to pimps slappin' hos, but didn't make the backhand connection. I lived in suburbia, but had a cool black friend.

I ended up a Nazi.

Don't assume city culture is the same everywhere. You're not likely to hear this shit where I live, and not only because a good 60 percent of the population is ultra-fundamentalist.

Then don't use terms you don't know, and get pissed when people who do know what they mean get offended by the offensive meaning.

Yeah, "Social Justice Crusaders" is an oxymoron. Sounds like the internet has dropped a bunch of self-righteous asshats right into your lap; I say milk this for all it's worth.

This board has never struck me as the most socially savvy bunch, so not all that surprising...

We lived outside of suburbia until I was in college, but "bitchslap" didn't really get tossed about much. Other things (worse and mostly in Spanish) yes, but bitchslap, not so much.

But so many people use bitchslap on a daily basis and only the SJers get their panties in a knot about it.

A lot of people throw the word "gyp" around, which is racist and offensive. The only people who care about that word are the the SJers. And when people get called out on it, they reply it doesn't count, because everyone uses it, and that they're getting their panties in a knot. Or it turns out they had no idea it was offensive.

If you don't know what a slang word means, look it up before you use it.

Well, Snake Bandage, you could tell the "Social Justice Crusaders" (what a wonderful synonym for "the politically correct brigade", by the way Rolling Eyes ) that, with a big helping of indignation and belittling language, and then you can come back here to whine about how things have gone from bad to worse.

Or, you could just own up to the fact that you were unaware of the "pimp and whore" connotation of bitchslap and not use the term again.

You know what? I'll just keep using bitchslap for every occasion. Just to spite you all.
