Does anyone else want to kick the crap out of Juno's character? What is it with fake-manga writers and the need to put screaming, rude bitches (No Need for Bushido and Aoi House for example) in their comics? Not to mention that Juno is mistaking swearing for being adult and edgy. Sure some characters may do it more often than others (depending on thier personality and background) and if you're angry, the bad words are more likely to come out. But a little goes a long way.

My best guess for why fake manga-ka do this is cultural backlash. In most of the anime I've seen, women are usually portrayed as weak and submissive, even as stars of their own shows. So, western creators seeing this, female ones in particular, feel the need to make up for by casting their leading ladies as the complete opposite in what's in most anime. The problem is that they overshoot it and their strong, assertive heroines end up being rank bitches. Like I said, that's my best guess.
Could be but I've seen my fair share of animes where the screaming bitch sterotype is apparent: Dragonball Z, Love Hina, many harem animes, Those Obnoxious Aliens (Forgot the Japanese name), Ranma 1/2, etc.
