ETYMOLOGY: From the Bible, Jezebel, the infamously wicked wife of Ahab, king of Israel. Rosalie Maggio, The Dictionary of Bias-Free Usage (1991): ' The biblical story of Jezebel shows a murdering, controlling, rapacious person. She is primarily an amoral manipulator and only secondarily a woman . Instead of focusing on Jezebel's viciousness, the dictionary definition of a jezebel emphasizes her sexuality (a shameless or abandoned woman) when in fact Jezebel did not in any way trade on her sex to carry out her evil deeds .'
