Now I really understand that people are more interested in getting women involved in leadership positions, that I am all behind. Basing the entire movement on the word “bossy” though, that is a fucking joke. Watching the video there are a ton of powerful women in it, Jennifer Garner, Beyonce, Condalisa Rice. Those are just a few names but this movement really tried to bring out their top guns to make people pay attention to this ban on the word “bossy”.
There are a lot more things that women are called that bring them down other than just words like bossy, stubborn, and whatever else was listed. How about we try and ban other words, words that women call each other which makes it okay for men to call us that. Can we have a ban on the word slut or whore? Can we ban the words fat and ugly? All of these words deserve more precedent then the word bossy.
Also how about we get celebrities to stand behind other things that matter, other than women feeling empowered. Maybe they can stand behind bringing the troops home, maybe they can stand behind the poverty that this country is facing, or maybe they can try and think of affordable education for everyone. Just to list a few fucking things that our country is dealing with.
IF you women want to make a change tell people to stop calling each other fat, stop calling each other ugly, stop tearing people down. I will tell you being a woman myself, being called bossy is one of the least offense things that I have ever been called.
