So I was sitting here watching tv and these black girls were calling each other the "B" word, but they were doing it like in "Girl, you my 'b'!" or "That's my 'b'!" and then laughing about it... Then the girls were calling each other "B's" but getting mad about being called a "B"...which was confusing. Moreover, I've even had girlfriends of mine do the same thing. For me, I wouldn't call a woman a "B" as a term of some kind of endearment. These same women will call each other "B's" (in endearment) but get mad if a man calls her a "B". I'm in no way condoning any of these actions. I just find it hypocritical and confusing. And it's almost like giving men the right to call women "B's" just flippantly. I never seen were the gray area starts when it comes to calling someone out their name.
