    no just because i'm anti censorship and no matter what i don't think words should be banned. plus if we banned the word another word would take it's place. it happens all the time
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    No, hell no. I've had many female supervisors. I tend to prefer working under women superiors for some reason. I can say that some were awesome leaders and some were just plain bossy bitches. The same can be said for men I've worked under. Bossy is bossy, period. Some people don't know how to lead.

    To suggest women need protected from a word paints them as helpless little rabbits, and in the end would likely prove to be counterproductive.
    Agreed. Painting girls as victims that need assistance from society infantilizes them and shifts resources/focus from a positive one, i.e. examples of how successful women have been and teaching girls leadership to a negative one, which may breed entitlement.

    Hehe. What I find interesting is what older kids call the boys that are bossy. While young girls souls are being crushed by words like bossy, "bossy" young boys endure words like ass****, di**, pri** etc. I'd imagine those words come into play later, middle school+ and bossy is unisex elementary- I'd hazard to say we save our "best" vitriol for the bossy men in adulthood. Bossy is a pretty weak insult in other words

    Well, there's also bitch and cunt for women.

    I dunno, I kinda use whatever regardless of the gender though. Not intentionally, just whatever feels right at the moment. Like I'll say to a guy "ya dumb bitch" or I'll say to a girl "you're a dick." I just let the profanity flow. My mom says I get it from her side of the family, which I don't doubt.

    What I found stupid, was that in Beyonce's little contribution to help ban this word, she states, "I'm not bossy, I'm the boss."

    I can't describe the source of the stupidity, I can only feel it.

    I leave myself open to logics of either interpretation.

    IIRC, Rory Miller (author, veteran martial artist and retired corrections sergeant) said that there is a big difference between a leader and a manager. If you can't figure out what the difference is, it's safe to assume that you are a manager.
