Lefties Don’t Want You To Call Girls This B-Word – And It’s Not What You Think

The thought police who make up the modern leftist movement continue their campaign against free speech by seeking to ban yet another word from the English language. According to those behind this campaign, the mere existence of the word “bossy” is evidence of a sexist culture that wants to relegate females to positions of subservience.

Author Sheryl Sandberg claims that the word is often the beginning of a lifetime of unbearable stress for girls with an interest in leadership.

“We call girls bossy on the playground,” she said. “We call them too aggressive or other B-words in the workplace.”

Along with Girl Scouts CEO Anna Maria Chavez and other activists, Sandberg has established the website BanBossy.com. The site not only seeks to create a new generation of female leaders but aims to shield girls from hearing the latest word deemed politically incorrect by the perpetually offended feminist crowd.

“I was called bossy when I was in ninth grade,” Sandberg said, apparently failing to realize that she advanced to a position of leadership despite surviving this harrowing incident.

The fact remains that virtually all humans will face some level of harsh criticism or name-calling in their developmental years. Instead of attempting to prevent those experiences by declaring any potentially abusive words off-limits, many feel the next generation would be better served by learning how to effectively deal with such situations.

Unfortunately, Sandberg, Chavez, and their ilk are apparently more interested in limiting freedom than they are in equipping young people for adulthood.

The ostensibly offensive word, Sandberg claims, “is symbolic of systemic discouragement of girls to lead.”

She said that, while she is undeniably in favor of “getting rid of a word,” she is also interested in “getting rid of the negative messages that hold our daughters back.”

The activists behind this campaign suggest that the word ‘bossy’ is used to describe anyone without a Y chromosome who exhibits any leadership ambitions. In reality, however, it is often used as a way to designate overly aggressive and pushy individuals.

Sandberg herself conceded that traits such as “bullying” and “aggression” are antithetical to desirable leadership skills. Without being able to describe these people as ‘bossy,’ it is only inevitable that a new, perhaps more vulgar, word will emerge in its stead.

    Sandberg is the typical example of BOSSY.Women sure as hell don't need her to tell them how to feel.
