I've been thinking of some:
Sassy
Feisty
Hysterical
Gossip
Strident
Mumtrepeneur
Career woman
Slut

These are used to describe women having an opinion, working or having sex. I can't think of male equvilents.

I've heard bitch used many times about men. But usually if they're gossiping (both considered female 'traits'). sad

Words that are used for both, but in different ways:

Dog = ugly woman
Dog = cunning, manipulative man, but in an admired way (you sly dog!)

Selfridges were selling these the other day. Charming.

Blethermouse Sun 10-Jul-11 15:25:32

some of these words could be used for men..high maintenance for example, but they are derogatory words and therefore used as a put down, usually but not always by men, about women
equally there are words used primarily to insult men such as
wimp
nerd
geek
mummys boy

There's also the male equivalent of MILF, but you hardly ever hear people commenting on what a DILF someone is...
