And what I'm needing to know is, what would a British male character call another British male character that would be the equivalent of an American male calling another male his "bitch", and also the equivalent of calling him a whore or a slut?
I am considering also having the abuser call the victim by a term of endearment/pet name. If he was American, I'd use "baby" or "sweetheart" - something that can go either way, either be genuinely affectionate, or patronizing and degrading. Would "love" work for a British character? Or something else? What would you suggest?
Thanks so much for any help y'all can provide with this. :)
