The beginning of a life-long pattern of disregard for women

Today on my way to work I was determined to find a seat after my L’Enfant Plaza transfer so that I could continue reading my book. Three boys, age 12 or so, were sitting one behind the other, each taking up two seats. I sat down next to one of the boys and began to read, when he said to his friends, “Hey look, I have a little bitch.” How can a 12-year old boy talk like this??? Is this an instance of a little boy trying to impress his friends, or the beginning of a life-long pattern of disregard for women and callous language?
