    I think that maybe we just need to be more careful to differentiate between the meanings of different words. I think that the terms “bossy” or “pushy” really refer to the way someone treats others. If I called someone “bossy” it would be because they impose their will on others, or make unnecessary or selfish demands of people around them. There is a difference between “bossy” and “determined” or “motivated” or “proactive” or “empowered” or “bold” or “charismatic.” However, I do recognize that the main point of this movement is to ban the shaming of determined, motivated, proactive, empowered, bold, and charismatic girls and women by calling them “pushy” or “bossy,” which is definitely something I support. I just think that maybe the message could be better promoted without including the misinterpretation of “bossy.”

    So bossy is bad but she can say bitch in a bunch of her songs. I will not ban bossy. This is ridiculous.
