There was a link to this on Google this morning, so I checked it out:

http://banbossy.com/

I was wondering what all your thoughts were on this, because I think it's one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.

"When a little boy asserts himself, he's called a “leader.” Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded “bossy.” Words like bossy send a message: don't raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys—a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead."

Is that so? First of all, I was a kid a little boy who "asserted himself" wasn't called a "leader," he was called an annoying little kid. Second, I remember student elections in school. The girls were just as interested, if not more interested, in leading than the boys. As far as I know, the girl who was our class president throughout middle school and high school wasn't called "bossy," and if she was I don't suspect it caused her significant distress.

Apparently Beyonce is behind this, which gives me another reason to dislike Beyonce.
:rolleyes:

A thread about feminism without the word 'feminism' in the title? Cunning, very cunning.
The people who made this are the vocal majority but in reality the dumb minority. Let's ignore them.

What needs to be said about this woman? privileged Jewish feminazi's worth billions for what exactly? her and Zuckersberg pretty much sit on their asses all day while real people work for a living and we're meant to feel sorry for her because people call her bossy.You'll notice all the nasty feminists happen to be Jewish like the one who said that women should get their own country lmao Feminism which started out as being about equality was turned into a crusade against men. To turn man and women against eachother and do it on purpose. Girl at work calls our manager bossy behind her back all the time.

Ludicrous.

Men also get called 'bossy', it isn't gender exclusive.
