So you are saying that when women use this word it is intended as a congratulatory sobriquet celebrating the virtues of being hard to get along with?

But a man cannot have similar satirical intent?

Perhaps this is sometimes more along the lines of the determination of the recipient of such commentary to insist they have been offended? A charade of convenience in other words.

the word B*tch is only used by a man when he is upset. That is not the case when women use it toward each other.

That is not entirely true about men. A lot of gay men use the b word with their male friends.

Yeah, straight men don't call other straight men "b!tches."

Except for the famous ******-Honky scene in Season 2 in "The Break-up, Pt I," where George calls Tom Willis a "honky" and Tom calls George "******;" and in the Season 7 episode "Sorry, Wrong Meeting," where George comes face-to-face with the KKK, George's use of the N-word was an ad-lib by Sherman (not in the script). Sherman felt it was appropriate for the character and ad-libbed during audience performance.

In the KKK story, the writers, both white & black, labored over whether to use the N-word; but figured that Klansmen would use that word, and decided not to soft-pedal the story, but to play it real. (p. 365, HONKY IN THE HOUSE, Writing & Producing The Jeffersons. https://amzn.to/2L1bD7K

EXACTLY! I heard Sherman would NOT have used that word unless he felt it was appropriate and part of the COMEDY of the show so thanks for proving all the HATERS in this thread WRONG!

A study came out recently that 80% of Americans say America has gotten TOO politically correct! A percent that high means majorities of most ALL groups feel America has gotten too politically correct.

That KKK episode was more suited for season 1 or 2 since by season 8 and 9 they were already living for a while

In The Jeffersons episode titled "George's Best Friend," George's old Navy buddy Wendall (played by actor Lou Gosset Jr.) is hitting on Louise. When George finds out, he confronts Wendall, ad-libbing the N-word with: "******, you got to be crazy! I know you done back-doored a lotta people, but I never thought you'd be stupid enough to back-door me! You better get outta my house before I erase your future!" p. 122, HONKY IN THE HOUSE, Writing & Producing The Jeffersons. https://amzn.to/2L1bD7K
