Wise Guys: Do Men Really Love Bitches?

bitch_tattoophoto by Publicly_Scalped

Advice from three of our guy friends. This week they answer the following: Do men really love bitches?

Straight Single Guy (Colin): Guys love a challenge. That’s why we’re always trying to fix cars, throw the perfect spiral, or look cool with really awful facial hair. If we’re ever with a bitch, it’s only because we want to overcome her militant manner and make her swoon for us. We want to find her soft spot and turn her around to show the world she’s not all bad — that way we look great, too, for having cracked her stone cold exterior. Don’t feel like playing the B-Card is ever going to help you out, though. Most of us tire of silly games like this pretty quickly — and even if we do love bitches from time to time, the good ol’ American sweetheart will always win out.

Straight Married Guy (Matt): I don’t think so. Maybe some guys like getting treated like shit and pushed around, but that was never my thing. I mean, if a girl is attractive and a real bitch, in my single days, I’d probably have wanted to have sex with her. But that’s just because there’s this idea that the sex would be more charged. Sometimes it was, sometimes it wasn’t. I don’t think bitchiness equals hot sex on its own. But beyond sex: dating (or falling in love with) a bitch? Forget it. Life’s dramatic enough on its own — I don’t need to fall in love with a pain in the ass.

Gay Committed Guy (Terence): That’s a big can of worms. I might be old-fashioned, but I’m having trouble typing the word bitch. When did this word become commonplace, or even acceptable? As I’m trying to think of how to characterize a b****, I can only think of that show Bridezillas. So let’s use the terms girlzilla and boyzilla instead. I think a man who claims to love a girlzilla has as many issues to work through as the girlzilla. His willingness to accommodate a difficult and unpleasant woman is saddening and self-destructive. In fact, it’s a mutually destructive cycle of immaturity that wouldn’t know love from a can of worms (I had to squeeze in my worm metaphor one more time). There ain’t no love for a zilla.

What kind of question is that? I think I’m one of the most decisive and smitten people who will ever reply to this.
I’m a tough young men. Extremely different from the few peers I know, literally.
I do NOT like bitches.
My mom and my sisters are one. That makes me a son of a bitch. I don’t want to actually want to be involved with any other.
The answer is no.

I think the word “Bitch” means different things to different people. For some it means “whore?” (really?) Others a “zilla” whatever that is (sorry, I don’t watch Reality TV. I am assuming the term is from that particular vomitus of programming?)

For some a “bitch” is a woman who simply makes them feel insecure about themselves, for others, she’s a self absorbed woman, intent on her own desires, for others ANY woman who stands up for and voices her own opinions, uses her God Given gifts for the best, and doesn’t back down, has no problem pointing out errors, and doesn’t crumble at the slightest “insult” to her reputation is one. For others, it’s simply a word to substitute for “woman.”

Without a proper definition, it’s hard to comment.

I am a female bitch and lover. I think a man needs both in a relationship. When I am a bitch my husband of 27 years respects me as an independent woman, he knows that I can do things without him, I feel it makes him appreciates me more. I am also a lover I show my husband that I appreicate him as well. I respect him as a MAN, and I let him wear the pants when needed. He cooks ,cleans and caters to me all the time. I also take turns catering to him as well, The bottom line is in any relationship you need a balance. A man will get bored with a good girl and tired of the bitch. So keep it excited, and be both. The bitch will keep him from boredom and the good girl will keep him there.

Crystal, I don’t think Lucy’s talking about needing men to accomplish tasks that she can’t complete on her own. Yin and yang baby – women need real men, and men need real women.

She put it harshly, but she’s right. Americans are unattractively genderless – men act like pussies around women for fear of being labled sexist, women have an underdeveloped sense of femininity and grace… it’s not good. The genders are equal in terms of human value… but they’re different. We’ve created this sexless grey area in gender relations that harms us all.
