Question

A random question occured to me while watching Comedy Central that will probably get me some really strange search hits, but what the hell:

Why is it okay to say "tits" on TV, but not "dick" or "cock?"

You can say "bitch" now or call someone a "pussy," but you can't say "dickhead" or "asshole?"

I'm just sayin'. I'm all for gender equality in our cuss words.

It's also OK to say "bitch". These are all female specific swearwords, and females, or at least female sexuality is property and purview of the patriarchy. Ergo, the P can make the rules about it and the rules they make keep female sexuality as property and purview of the patriarchy.

silly JLK! Communication is for the boyz. Women are supposed to look pretty, hence that "women and children should be seen, not heard" crap. jc

Oops - you already said it was OK to say bitch. Reading fail. Point still stands though
