Is it considered such an offensive swearword in the US that we can't even say someone spoke b!tchily? Or discuss female dogs? Just wondered, because there are a lot worse words not censored, over here b!tch is really very, very innocuous so that one has always struck me as rather odd and bizarre.

Personally, I enjoy kvetching, but I can understand the need to b!tch from time to time.

The reason it is banned is because it creates “a paradigm of shame and indignity” (http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/07/nyregion/07bword.html?ref=nyregion). You don't really want FT to become a paradigm of shame and indignity, do you?
