I want to be everything and nothing
Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will soon see more women in leadership roles.
I’m all for getting people to not name call or bully but when you try to ban words it’s taking away our freedom of speech. You can’t just make everything you don’t like, illegal. That’s not how it works.
i totally think you’re missing the point here. they want to ban the negative connotation that is associated with girls being called bossy. there is nothing wrong with a woman taking the lead, being strong, courageous, and ambitious. i doubt they want to ban the actual word. i’m looking through their website and i don’t see a petition to actually ban the word itself.
