But don't most people have little things that they don't like but they can't really explain why/it's not always rational?
My mum gets twitchy when I call DS 'little man' but I think it's adorable FOB calls him 'peas' and DS calls him 'corn' which I despise but it's their own little thing! Each to their own I reckon.
B!tch, on the other hand 😳
I would never refer to my dd, or any other little girl, as a b*tch. That is disgusting. I don't often swear in general though, so it's not a word I often use.
My old uni lecturer and placement coordinator (for speech pathology) drilled it in to us not to use the word 'kid' while on prac or in front of parents. It was one thing she truly despised. For that reason I just don't use it.
I often refer to DS as "the boy" I wonder what people think of that? As for Bish, bogan as.
DS is boy, the boy, kid, kiddo, his name, various nicknames - and I don't find a single one impersonal or lacking sincerity.
B!tch is revolting
