Though bitch means female dog, the many slang meanings of this word can be applied to both men and woman. We’ll look at a few of them in turn now.
When you call a woman a bitch, you’re saying that she is being loud, rude, unreasonable and/or overly aggressive. Like “asshole,” this is a very strong word, so don’t use it on someone’s grandmother.
I know you’re upset, but you don’t have to be such a bitch about it!
When a man is called a bitch, this usually means that he is being called weak or being made to feel bad because he is a subordinate, or a person of a lower rank. When a man is someone’s bitch, this means that he is controlled by another person.
I’m hungry! Be my bitch and make me some breakfast!
As a verb, to bitch means to complain or whine too much about something you think is unfair.

We call a beautiful, sexy woman a bombshell to describe her as powerful and explosively hot.

Beef refers to complaints or bad feelings. To have a problem with something is to have a beef with it.

Goggles are the tight glasses you wear when swimming. Though they keep water out of your eyes, goggles usually get foggy and decrease your ability to see. Like goggles, alcohol also decreases your ability to think and see clearly. So, after someone has had a few drinks, can’t see clearly and becomes more likely to want to sleep with, or have sex with, someone they wouldn’t normally be attracted to, they’re said to be wearing their beer goggles.
Someone may look ugly to you when you’re sober, or not drinking, but they’ll look fantastic with your beer goggles on!
Bollocks is British slang for testicles and is said when something is considered nonsense or an outright lie.
