Can A Man Call Me A "Bitch" In A Work Setting And Get Away With It?

My colleague has an anger problem and while he has never laid a hand on me he called me a "bitch" the other day. This is highly inappropriate to say the least but I was curious as to whether it was illegal or if I had any recourse? At the least want it to stop!

If the word "bitch" is directed at a particular woman, it does not show discrimination at women in general, just anger at you. If he stated that "women are bitches" then it shows sexual discrimination toward women and it may be actionable.
