The BITCH list

What’s up bitches? 

Yeah, this is slightly disturbing.  When I came across the BITCH LIST: supposedly written by third graders, I admit to having a silent snigger to myself, although it’s actually very sad and possibly the problem with young girls today. They simply know too much, and they’re using that knowledge to criticise other girls. Making a list of ‘why boys smell,’ I could understand. But it’s alarming that they’re already being so harsh on each other this way. (Sadly, they have the rest of thier lives to pull each other down and make each other feel like crap! Because we’re girls, it’s what we do right?)

You see calling someone a bitch no longer adequately summarises the apparent problem the accused seems to have. No. And why would it? Some girls wear the label proudly. It’s practically a term of endearment these days. Others use it as a way of addressing their fans. People like me… and Britney Spears.

But did you know there are actually 90 types of bitches?

I didn’t know that, but some bitchy little 8 year old girls have compiled a thourough and horrifyingly coherent list titled TYPES OF BITCHES.

 Ok, here’s the background story… (and I should mention this blog is not 100% original. I came across the list while researching my next column, and it has already been blogged by at least 10 people).

Apparently a teacher at a charter school in Washington DC found this list on the floor of a third grade classroom.

Whether or not the list was actually written by an 8 year old or perhaps an older sibling is a mystery. The handwriting looks more 5th grade to me…. But I’ve personally witnessed some bitch-in-action behaviour by 5 year olds, so the concept of an 8 year old being this informed should probably not surprise me.

The teacher, no doubt astonished by the viciousness of these nasty little princesses, scanned the list and it’s been circulating. Page 4 is missing, so we may never know what other 15 types of bitches there are – out there causing grief. They’ll wander freely amongst us, unrecognised by the majority and will strike into full bitch mode when we least expect….

So here is the list.

I’m almost speechless. Almost.  All I can say is that whoever made that list is being allowed to watch and read and listen to stuff WAY beyond their years… like Eddie Murphy DELIRIOUS and Kanye and Akon.

I would love it if Oprah or Ellen could get these girls on their show and force them to explain their list to a world-wide audience.

But it’s ironic…. Magazine editors, on-line gossip site writers, and people like me sit at our desk casting judgement on others and calling people names.  But we’re adults so it’s ok right?

Look maybe I’m just having a moment here. I’ve had an eye opening morning that has left me feeling like I want to kiss the whole world hello… but perhaps if we don’t want to hear it from 8 year old little girls, we shouldn’t be saying it ourselves.

    Ohhhhh those 8yr olds are nasty. I remember 8 very well (I’m sure you do too) can you imagine?!?! I recognise that every generation thinks theirs was a childhood of freedom and innocense but I gotta say, at 8, I wouldn’t even think that word let alone say it!

    I know!! agree, agree! And saying bitch is one thing…. saying, “Dick riding bitches”

    (cough, splutter) When I was 8 I thought the only things you could ride were bikes, and horses and the bus!

    The last paragraph hits the nail on the head………..If there is anything that shouts louder than what we tell our children it is what we say and do ourselves……

    WOW! Some of the stuff in there is pretty graphic and alarming. I think it’s really sad that these girls felt the need to categorise this topic, and at such a young age too. Although I think that this may just be the modern day “We Hate Casey Club” which was started by a few of my year 6 (11 year old) classmates and really they only hated her because she was head girl, clearly more popular, smarter and better looking than they were. Still…sad.
