It’s a term that’s literally been used hundreds of times on this forum, often calling a person the term. search.php?keywords=bitch

I used it as a substitute for “complain” and we have a whole fucking page on it
Seriously, this thread is the definition of pathetically hypocritical, insecure virtue signaling.

If you don’t like the term, feel free to reach out to the hundreds of other posters using it as well :)

Even if you hate surly

Even if you think it's a ubiquitous term

Maybe... consider not using it

Interesting length of time you chose there. What would happen if you were to extend it by, say, 5 years? Also, how many times has your team made the playoffs in that time period? 13 times. For a white sox fan, 2000 is a particularly memorable year just because we got to the playoffs. For a cubs fan, 2003 is very memorable year just because they got to the NLCS (with a team that only won 88 games, and they still talk about it as if they were the best team and should have won it all that year!). I'm sure mariners fans still talk about that 2001 team. None of these teams won a world series. None of them even made it to the world series.


Ah yes, I must have not gotten the memo that only fans of certain teams are allowed to complain about poor decision making from front office management, who make millions each year.

contristo no one misunderstands what you mean when you say that word, it's just that most of us have either asked ourselves why a synonym for "complain" is gendered, or at the very least, stopped using it on the board. it's not hard to remove it from your vocabulary, but it is hard for anyone to take you seriously when you decide to defend yourself for using it.

It’s certainly not, but it’s certainly evidence of the posters itt calling me out purely to virtue signal.

Otherwise, would there not be outrage the 400 other times it has been mentioned on hipinion the past year or so alone?

In other words, ya’ll can fuck off with your suddenly “being offended” at a very prevalent term used here.

poor decision making from front office management got the yankees into the playoffs 13 out of the last 18 years.

There’s really not a desire for me to care about “offending” people that jump down my throat and call me names for critiquing Brian fucking Cashman.

Especially when these same people don’t give a shit when anyone uses it, but me.

This is a pretty emblematic Yankees fan post

Not every team is a perennial contender. Coming in third is still a pretty big deal for a rays fan. Because it means we may be in second place. Or even win the division. Or get a chance to get stomped by the Phillies. Or who knows.

Basically, coming in third or losing the wild card game is the shit that makes being a fan so rewarding. And it's why fans of Alabama football or the Yankees or the Patriots or red Sox has to be so hollow.

I look forward to you reaching out to the 400+ posters that have used the term on hipinion in the last year then, often in actual anatagonistic terms instead of a mere substitute for “complain”, since it impacts you so greatly.

So, upon seeing terrible decisions and lack of production, Yankees fans should be expected to sit quietly?

Why would you want to neuter any fan base?

I have never told any members of a fan base how to act or show their frustrations, as you are doing with me. Why would someone care so much?

I don't care what you do as a fan just understand:

1 winning it all is not a realistic goal for most fans.
2 it's worth abandoning the word "bitch" and it's not a concession to your squabbles

Word substitutes directed at no one specifically, though whose alternative meaning has negative gender connotations, are a no go, but insults like “insufferable prat” directed at someone who issued no personal attack prior is a-ok.

I’ll get it right next time hopefully!
