Mandate the FCC to stop broadcasting of the female-derogative "B-word" on TV

The “B–word” is a derogatory word, a pejorative*. Yet it is spoken on TV every day, in reference to women and girls.
Repeated television-broadcast use of this word implies worthlessness and inferiority of half the population of our country. It is a verbal manifestation of hate and misogyny against female-kind. And it is now used in every single show on TV, just about – from cartoons and comedy, to drama, “reality” and talk shows. We can’t escape it! Its prolific use is teaching the whole next generation of kids and young people that it’s ‘normal’ to refer to women as “B”+ "itches."
Women are not “B-words” and it’s time we stopped allowing this hate-speech against women on TV. Sign this petition to encourage Congress to pass a bill mandating that the FCC stop the broadcast of this vile and prejudicial word on television networks and programs.
*Pejorative (definition): adjective 1. having a disparaging, derogatory, or belittling effect or force.
I am requesting that a bill be drafted and signed mandating the FCC to disallow the use of the female-derogative "B-word" in television broadcasts. Women are called Bitches on every show on television! It is personal. It is an attack on being female and it needs to stop.
That word needs the same protected status as racial and homophobic slurs have in television.
