Male equivalent of “Bitch?”

My wife has often complained that a woman can be called a bitch, but there’s no equivalent word in English for men. It seems that “bitch” is a particularly nasty word to apply to women, and I can’t deny the truth of this. Here goes:

“You Bitch!”

Alternative to "Bitch" - what does one call a man?

Alternative to "Bitch" - what does one call a man?

See how it kind of explodes on the lips? The tone is important – you gotta put all your effort in the “bi” part and mix it with appropriate scorn and loathing. The end result is something that is unique, remarkably pejorative, and when appropriately applied, dare I say it, deeply satisfying?

It’s kind of unfair to men that no similar word exists in the lexicon for them. What can you call a guy? An asshole? A dick? Faggot? The last one is pretty nasty, but unfortunately I end up judging the person who uses it rather than the person it’s aimed at. None of these words really encompasses the full impact. Let’s say that one more time:


I’ve heard some women on TV call men “You Rat” with quite good effect. But it seems you need to have the right personality to pull it off. I can’t imagine a quiet but effective “You rat.” But if you want to use “Bitch,” the possibilities are endless.

So those of you who haven’t faced this problem, educate the rest of us. What do you use for swearing at men with the same effectiveness as “Bitch?”

    Yeah, ‘Fuckboy’ is a terminology which I feel is acceptable .




  3. Call him bitchy or
    Tell him he is acting bitchy


  4. I believe there exists a word indeed… It is “Bastard” it is like saying that “Do you know your mother properly what is she…???” And all analogy for the word “bitch” also supports this word…

    It is apt also…. A man has intense love for his mother unless he is really a bastard.. Utterance of the word and its elaboration will reflect the scorn he applies in uttering “Bitch….!!!”


  5. Men are birches they wine and complain about everything
    May be its a term they use for women to make their egos feel better
    A bitch in sexual terms is a animal that is is nicely bread with another one
    But as far as humans are concerned, I believe that men either use it to downgrade the person they live with at that level or to describe in their vulgar language that they are sustaining their ego by being asked a question or simply explaining that they have not contributed much as out all of the time etc ” out wither girls and boys club” and when asked they just tell you that you are a bitch
    Now a real animal bitch has no choice it’s just done , but men feel women are bitching at them all of the time . Men are bitching at women all the time
    Didn’t get this or that done
    Dint you pay the bills what did you do all day and on and on ,need to drink 6 beers a day just to stop bitching or find another bitch to bitch too oh wee




  7. Tired of this nonproductive discussion: How about “BUTCH” ? Like, “he’s a butch or he’s being butchy ? That BUUITCH!” You can interpolate the nuances.
