It's funny how this whole "movement" (I wasn't even aware of the stupid thing until I read a few threads about it here on FR) is that they have all these women complaining about the lack of females in leadership positions ... and yet the women come across as pathetic, simpering misfits.

Stop crying ... rub some dirt on it ... and get back in the game, ladies. LOL.

I pretty much avoid looking a videos where I can't read a transcript prior to viewing.

Reading is WAY faster than listening; I do recognize that listening/viewing CAN have valuable information not available in a transcript...

Women want. That's all there is to it.

They don't know what they want, probably something they can't have.
The ONLY way to ANY kind of success, joy, peace and comfort is through God. It IS that simple.

Are teenage girls really afraid of being called bossy?

Allegedly, teen girls in school do not go out for leadership roles in school or extra curricular activities, due to the fear of being called bossy.

I didn’t know this was any sort of problem.

But then on the video, Beyonce Knowles says that she is the boss. So, we don’t want to call women bossy, but we do call them the boss.

I’m confused.

Condoleezza Rice joining these ball breakers in this idiotic drivel? I guess being a warmongering neocon globalist lesbian affirmative action pro-palestinian bush pet lapdog academic just wasn’t enough for her. But she does play piano.

I can't help myself. I just have to post a link to this video here. Parts of it are pretty crude, but it's absolutely hysterical to see a feminist who doesn't realize she's being conned:

Ali G interviews Naomi Wolf

ROFL.

Thanks, that’s really worth the 10 minutes. I’d wondered what this ‘Ban Bossy’ crapola was all about, but figured it was some pop culture meme that I’d just been unaware of.

Loved how he used their own words to ridicule the absurdity of their argument. And sarcasm is always more cutting when delivered with a British accent ;-)

Women want. That's all there is to it.

I'm reminded of a famous scene with Jack Nicholson in "As Good As It Gets", where a woman asks him "How do you write women so well?", and he replies "I think of a man, and I take away reason and accountability".

My opinion: too many women want to make their own decisions, but still have Daddy be obligated to fix it when it turns out badly.

The word ‘bossy’ can apply to either male or female. On the other hand the word ‘bitch’ applies to female unless you are transgender.

The irony of this pseudo-issue is that it is the leftist harridans like Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Debbie Washerwoman Schultz who rank at the top of the “Bossy Witch” list.

No one thinks they know more about how the rest of us should live than a liberal woman in the spotlight.

Yes, it's called STUPID.

"STUPID" has now been classified as a dog-whistle term.

It is in line to become banned as one of the new "N" words.

"STUPID" has been replaced by "SMARTLESS".

Democrats love their slogans. They have to find something to keep young women in line after the Obama Administration’s many failures.

Ban Bossy is stupid and is going over like a lead balloon.

My observation is that women during that time can be snappy, but generally ONLY towards people it is SAFE to be snappy with.

The word ‘bossy’ can apply to either male or female. On the other hand the word ‘bitch’ applies to female unless you are transgender.

The corresponding guy terms are "bastard" and "asshole".

What the feminists don't get, is that the word "bossy" is applied to people who demand things be done their way, but who have not earned the right to issue orders through achieving legitimate authority.

A manager who demands things be done in a precise way, within her assigned scope of authority, is "firm". A low-level clerk who tells people to do things, without legitimate authority, is "bossy".

This is totally pathetic and pathetic is just one of the “labels” I have had laid on me at some point. It would take a lot of paper and a lot of time to list all the things I have been called in my life.
People need to remember an old children’s rhyme;
Sticks and stones etc.
I have been called many things, both positive and negative, fortunately I learned to realize that very few in either category were really justified.

Most people, whether male or female, are not really cut out for leadership, they should learn to live with it or at least be prepared to take the flak.

Reminds me of a Fraulien I had in the back of my Volkswagen Microbus when I was stationed in Germany. We had a few drinks, one thing lead to another, and pretty soon she was screaming "Nine, Nine, Nine!" and I was screaming back, "Lady, you're way off..."

People get so intimidated and put off of German because of those bizarrely long words. I don’t know whether it’s lazy, efficient or some combination of the two, but once you know they’re just running a bunch of shorter words and/or names together, it’s more comical than intimidating.

Contrary to a lot of nonsense, Germans have an excellent sense of humor, and like any sense of humor that isn't based in cruelty, most of it is self-deprecating. They're the first to admit how comical their straightforward compounding makes long nouns appear and sound.

The Welsh do the same thing. In fact, I believe the longest known word in any language is a Welsh place-name, which not only describes but gives brief directions to the town.

When my company tried to roll out the “Ban Bossy” campaign for women’s history month, I blew up. There are women in the developing world who can’t go to school past middle school for lack of bathrooms and hygiene options, so they drop out once their period starts. There are women in the Muslim world who can’t go to school because they are female, not allowed out of the house. We could look at high powered females today who have been secretaries of state, prime ministers and world leaders.
And your big thing is to ban a WORD.
That doesn’t empower women. Instead, it suggests that girls are the hothouse flowers men accused women of being in the 1920s. It makes women out to be nannying nags, monitoring and suppressing speech instead of going out and accomplishing things.
I suppose the only reason I’m not fired is because I’m female myself.
