I'm guessing he was just being rude & cruel for no real reason. (But what do I know)

Monkey throw poop.

Need we analyze the turd to know what he meant by it? :nerdy:


Hello Bill,

After a string of 'B' answers, we finally get the 'A' answer. :lol:

Did you read Bill Cosby's glorious diatribe on 'African American' dialect :?:

If he wasn't black, he would probably be facing at least a law suit :D :arrow:

"b***h ass" sounds more like a compliment than an insult, are you sure it was intended as an insult rather than acknowledging you as a fellow?

I think "b***h ass" makes it negative, while just "b***h nigga" may make it neutral or even positive. I'm no expert on the gangster vernacular, though.

Basically he's calling you a b***h. Nigga doesn't always mean a black person, it could mean the same as "man" or "dude". I've seen black people using nigga on people who aren't black under this context...

Before anyone starts getting over-analytical and literal, I'm not saying all black people use the world "nigga". It's a subcultural thing...


I agree with this.

"b***h" when said toward a male can mean stuff like weak, gay, submissive, or other things that may be viewed as weak traits by males that like to be seen as tough. Combining it as "bitch-ass" is just throwing another curse word in there, I guess trying to make himself sound more tough. I don't know why he added "nigga" on there. When people say "you're my nigga" it's like "you're my bro" or something. It's not always a bad thing, but in this context it is. He may have been trying to sound tougher than you or something, seem threatening, or he may have just been some guy who head something and repeated it. My little brother hears words and repeats them in the wrong context.

It's basically like calling someone a chump. It's used fairly loosely, but it does have a negative connotation.

But, I like girls. I do not like boys. Why would someone call me homosexual? What proof is there that would suggest my sexuality is not as I say it is? Why would I lie about that?

And what is a chump, and why am I one?

You're not a chump. A chump is someone who's hmmmm, like a jerk, maybe? You're definitely not a jerk, either. He probably didn't even think about it that deeply. And he probably says it all the time and thinks nothing of its meaning. When I was 15 or so I was called all kinds of names that implied sexual promiscuity when I was a virgin, so what they were saying was clearly not true. In this case, what he said isn't true either.

Regarding homosexuality, I think that that interpretation may be over intellectualizing it. The phrase is used frequently and I really doubt he was calling you gay. He probably has no idea that that could be implied. b***h has become a unisex term in the last 15 years or so anyway, especially when used like he did. i think he was basically just calling you the most aggressive, yet generic name he could think of. Clearly, he lacks a broad vocabulary.

Maybe he was calling you a Gay man, which I doubt that you are.

It doesn't have to do with homosexuality. Calling a guy a b**** is a way thuggish morons assert dominance or threaten someone. It doesn't mean anything about you. He probably just said that to try to get a reaction, or make himself feel tough. In any case it's a throwback to primitive gorilla/chimp behavior.

It was a very generic insult and one that I'm betting you have the maturity and grace to just shrug off! :wink:

This is quite an interesting thread.

It is tough enough for us to understand NTz with PERFECT diction.............

These urban vernaculars (from the 'Hood') are like extreme sports for Aspies :!: :arrow:
