I would have never in a million years known kid was an offensive/annoying term but for Bubhub. Another one I will file in my giant 'only on BH' folder
ETA I abhor the word b*tch. I really hate it, I think it's a really vicious thing to call someone. I think I hate it so much because it's so gendered- there is no male equivalent. It's used to police only female behavior.

Referring to little girls as b**ch

Yeah, no! I don't think it's ok to call a child b!*ch.
I don't think referring to your child/ren as 'kid/s' is bad, but I can see how the intention or intonation behind it may make it seem like a dehumanising word.

Yeah FL, I have to admit my mind has been blown to learn that the term 'kids' is annoying. Must remember to ask my friends what they think. I never know what to call my students because some of them are 12/13 so boys and girls sounds wrong, 'guys' is sexist, children is wrong for the mood and culture of my classroom, and now I can't use kids either??
I despise the word b!tch as well - it's something that makes me wild. You can c-bomb me all you like and I don't care but, yeah... I'm the same.
Maybe to me it implies just a not very nice guy, whereas b!tch seems to be often used when a woman is being strong or outspoken or direct. Like we are held to different standards of communication or something? It's interesting (to me) but a whole other discussion I guess.

I was conducting parent teacher interviews one day and the students were required to be present.
One mum came in with her gr 5 daughter, sat down and said "it's ok. You can say it. She's a bi+ch. we call her that all the time."
Omg I nearly fell off my chair. Yes she was difficult and she was dominant over all the other girls but I would NEVER call her a bi+ch and I told her mother that. She just shrugged and said her daughter knows it.
All the while the daughter is sitting there beaming.
No. I would never not have I ever called my dd a bi+ch. eugh.
Kid, on the other hand, well. I'm perfectly fine with it and I don't feel that it increases my bogan-ness at all.

I call my two the kids or kidlets all the time, also the cherubs (sometimes with a hint of sarcasm!).
I would never in a million years call them b!tched or b@stards.
I detest the term little man too, we don't call girls little women so why are boys little men, they're children or God forbid kids!
