Bitching about the casual and indifferent usage of the word "Bitch."

A young woman sitting next to me on the ferry is talking to someone on her cell phone.

She uses the word "Bitch" as often as most people use the word "the" in a conversation. It is a bit shocking to hear. Everyone and everything is a bitch. Even the person that she is talking to is "bitch" as in friend. The word has little more meaning then "girl" or "hey." It is for her, a near meaningless filler word.

Other than that, her dialect, if that is the right word for it, is basic west coast ebonic.

I wonder if she can turn it off?

I also wonder how much that language usage colors her world?

It is an unfortunate fact of life that there are people out there in the wilds of the Internet that think it cute to post racist and Nazi garbage on other peoples websites. Some of these thugs are even enabled by people who should know better. In my opinion, both the thugs and their enablers are worse than spammers.

I have recently made enemies with a particular group of these people who have done just that on another website. I don't intend to make it easy for them to do that to me.

In light of that, comment moderation will be used here on this humble and very obscure little blog.

I will check in several times each day to approve appropriate comments.

For the most part, I will allow just about any type of comment except for spam and Kilgorian excrement.
