You Say I’m Bitter Like That’s a Bad Thing. It’s not uncommon for someone on social media to comment in response to a writer expressing a grievance to say something like, “Bitter much?” That’s usually the extent of the comment. (Apparently the people who like to throw this one out there expect its effect to be so devastating that they need not expand on it.)

More often than not, this pithy response is aimed at older female writers, and it’s usually younger female writers doing the aiming. I think that says a lot more about the mindset of the commenter than the writer at whom the implied criticism is directed.
