Excerpt: Bitch? Please! by Megan Munroe

An excerpt from Bitch? Please!
by Megan Munroe

First things first:  Who are we talking about when we say bitch?

This can be tricky.  As women, we have to admit that there is a little "bitch" inside of all of us.  Even nice girls can't deny that we have to constantly tame the little voice in our heads that says everything is all about us.  But what we must understand is that there is a world of difference between having a bitchy moment and being a bitch.

One is an emotion; the other is a lifestyle.

Perhaps you're like me and find yourself wondering, Why can't everyone just get along?  Unfortunately, the bitch isn't going anywhere, and as long as she is en vogue, we have to find a way to make a way for ourselves, despite her current trending.

Conversely, nice has become a dirty word for women.  It represents the proverbial doormat.  And according to Web sites like, it certainly isn't a way to behave for "women who just ain't gonna take it no more."

What does the bitch have to be so angry about, anyway?

Apparently her thong has gotten in a twist over the last few decades.  She is out to prove to the world that being loud and lewd is the only way to get what she wants.  And the bitch wants it all.
