One Man's Bitch is another man's Virago

I subscribe to Dictionary's word of the day.
I found today's entry rather ironic

virago \vuh-RAH-go; vuh-RAY-go\, noun:

1. A woman of extraordinary stature, strength, and courage.
2. A woman regarded as loud, scolding, ill-tempered, quarrelsome, or overbearing.

So ladies next time you're extraordinary, strong or brave, beware someone doesn't label you a loud, overbearing beeotch.

Potato, potahto, virago, virahgo,
Let's call the whole thing off!"
