The Word "Bitter"

Debra Baker posted and article on her blog called:

Bitter and Male Privilege

It is a very good analysis of how certain words are used to try to kick the legs out from under legitimate gripes.

Thanks for the "heads up" Mara! I was once accused of being bitter, too, and can relate. We need a new definition:
Bitter: an angry person who needs to shut up, sit down, and submit to ill usage as God's plan for their life.

The "you are bitter" accusation is basically, "I don't want to hear about it; I LIKE the status quo, so don't rock the boat."
