Thank you, Fran, for the link.
What I want to say is, the word exist in the above sense. In fact, in our days it may have taking a turn in use.
Thus, my turning point too, I am going bend a little then, for ABS´ sake.
In fact, it would be way less ambiguous if a friend said that had a beautiful female dog, than saying that had a beautiful bitch...!
Since the 1980s, the term "bitch" has become increasingly accepted and less offensive. After the word was widely used between rivals Krystle and Alexis on the nighttime soap-opera TV series Dynasty, it gained usage, in malicious contexts or otherwise, and is now very rarely censored on television broadcasts. Prior to the term's general acceptance, euphemistic terms were often substituted, such as "gun" in the phrase "son of a gun" as opposed to "son of a bitch", or "s.o.b." for the same phrase. More generally the term has also acquired the meaning of something unpleasant or irksome, as in the expression "Life's a Bitch".
