The Word ‘Bitch’

I have a problem with the word or slang “bitch”. While I love the animal this term refers to, I find it highly demeaning when this word is used as an adjective to define a woman.
Recently, someone called me one in a friendly sense and when I objected, clarified that it was more of an empowering term. A bitch in his terms was a feminist. While I do identify myself as a feminist in the making, call me a bitch and I won’t be responsible for what follows.
Even saying “Bitch please” irks me.  I do not know the other person’s intentions, so, I get offended.
