Liz says: It depends on what behaviors you view as “bitchy”. Sometimes, when a woman is simply asserting herself or otherwise being direct, men will perceive her as rude when the very same behavior from a man would be perceived as strong or smart. In this case, my take is that these “girls” are wise in knowing when to stand up for themselves and when to speak plainly so as not to be misunderstood.
But if we’re talking about behaviors that would be deemed rude or abusive no matter how you slice it and who they’re coming from, and she is obviously aware of and enjoys being “bitchy”, I would say she might be extremely immature, or have a personality disorder, or a mental illness, or just going through a shitty time in her life and she’s taking it out on others. Whatever the case, the more interesting question to me is: why are some men more attracted to women who are “bitchy/bratty”, know they’re being masochistic/submissive, and enjoy it?
