Skip to comments.Donít Tread On Bossy
Posted on 03/12/2014 1:14:34 PM PDT by absentee
This week, liberals and their media lap dogs have once again revealed a part of their telling agenda: They want to ban the word "bossy". Yes. The word.
Why? Because it's "offensive." It holds back the young, up and coming women leaders of the new generation. They believe, and want us to believe, that we cant think for ourselves or raise strong independent young conservative women because "bossy" is bad, ugly, hurtful, and degrading. It doesn't matter that "bossy" has and will be used by women toward their male bosses and that's OK. Nobody objects to that. But for poor, weak little girls, having the word "bossy" used about them stunts their growth and won't let them achieve their goals. Girls can't take the heat, so get back IN the kitchen??

That's awfully... bossy... of them.
The fascist (bossy) left wanting to outlaw the word bossy.
It would be funny....if what they’re doing TO America were not so serious.
It fits with their agenda of allowing no dissent against authority (if it’s their authority). Strange, because “question authority” was once a popular slogan for them.
Oh for crying out loud. Honestly, THIS is their issue? How about they focus on something worthwhile, like, say, “honour” killing. Or the practice of mutilating female genitalia, or the treatment of women by muslim men. Or how about volunteering just doing something useful for someone.
You left out ball-breaking.
Banning ‘bossy’ is so Gay.
That is the best comment in the history of comments apillar. I’ve got to figure out a way to tweet that.
Expect more of these silly campaigns. It isn't about banning words but setting a media meme that criticizing a bossy woman is misogynistic - and any commentator, candidate or supporter who does so has ‘crossed a line’.
They are insulating their candidate.
Daughter #2’s favorite keychain is one that says, “I’m not bossy. I just have better ideas.”
"Bossy" is fairly universally considered a pejorative, but is core to what totalitarians wish to manifest in high-horse fashion, as they believe "they have better ideas." Totalitarians want to take an effective verbal weapon from our very mouths.
There's a line of reasoning that can't be ****-canned fast enough!
Darn it!, Now will have to change my cow’s name.
And to think Republicans actually invited her to speak at the 2012 convention. She probably voted for O again.
Say the word or don't say the word. It doesn't matter because it's a first amendment thing.
The first amendment - freedom of speech - is precisely to protect speech that others consider offensive. "Bossy" may be "offensive" to some women, but its use is protected by the first amendment.
Get over it!
We never should have given them the right to vote.
I heard about this, but not sure I follow the reasoning.
So, it sounds as if teenage girls don’t go for leadership roles in school, student council, extra curricular activities, because they are afraid of being called bossy.
Is this really true? . And the narrative indicates that this carries over into adulthood.
At a time when record numbers of women have advanced to high positions in every professional field, we’re saying the girls snuff out all ambition in middle and high school, because of the fear of being called bossy????
Doesthis make sense?
Then where did all these bossy women come from.
If equal treatment is what is desired then I guess we ought to call them what we call others displaying the same behavior...no not “leaders”...but simply “jerks” or other terms my parents told me never to say out loud
Of course if one conservative woman is called “bossy” by some leftists I expect to hear crickets on the left.
