The campaign was started by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, who enlisted Condoleezza Rice and Girl Scouts USA CEO Anna Maria Chávez.
Liberal celebrities have also hopped on the bandwagon, Fox News reported:
“I think the word ‘bossy’ is just a squasher,” “Glee” star Jane Lynch says in a campaign PSA, while Beyonce states: “I’m not bossy… I’m the boss.” Actress Jennifer Garner asserts that “being labeled something matters,” and famed fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg adds the kicker that we “should just ban the word ‘bossy’.”
Face it, this is just another effort by statist liberals to control people’s lives.
“The word ‘bossy’ is more PC gibberish. It demonizes an ordinary word without really putting much thought behind it. Instead of banning, we should be promoting positives like leadership, ambition, faith and self-respect,” said Katie Yoder, staff writer for the Media Research Center.
