Men can actually can. But the thing is, they would get hell from people a lot when hardly anyone would have a problem with women saying certain things. One example is this. A man tells people"I was at the store and a woman bumped into me really roughly."" I tell her to say excuse me but she spits in front of my shoes." I then called her a bitch. People respond with, "You called her a bitch, you don't call a woman that whatsoever." Whereas if I was a woman that called a man a piece of shit, asshole, etc people wouldn't care.
