    To make it as offensive as possible to the ones being described as such.

      But the insult is to women, like "son of a bitch" is also an insult to women, not men.

        is an insult to a specific individual, by (specifically) insulting his mother. Is 'your mother was a hamster' insulting to all women?

          On what planet?  Don't pretend to be that stupid.  A "son of a bitch" is an insult to his mother.  Calling a man a "bastard" is also an insult to his mother.  Calling men "ladies" (typical in the military and other male-dominated arenas) is an insult to women.  Saying "you throw like a girl" is an insult to girls and women.

          Men are demeaned in our culture by insinuating they are not men, they are really girls/women.  Which proves that men believe that to be female is to be a lesser being not worthy of respect.

          Why you guys who have commented here don't get that is beyond me.  You call yourselves liberals?  Nope.  You are no different than conservatives in your beliefs about women.
