    So did I. Is this an attack on the English language? Liberals won't be satisfied until we are only speaking Spanish and Chinese.

    Every time I tell my wife that she's being "bossy", I have to duck bc there is a large object flying towards my head.
    Coincidence?

    Bossy means demanding in a way that makes one a jerk. You can be a leader without being a jerk. I've seen many women be "leaders," and I've seen different women be "bossy." Leaders have "executive leadership skills" when they lead in such a way that people want to follow them. Bossy people are poor leaders, because they do not earn respect or inspire people to follow them.

    I worry for a world that considers "bossy people" aka "jerks" to be the "executive leaders."

    Makes me wonder what kind of little girl Hillary was...see seems like she probably could have been a bossy little bitch from what I've seen of her so far.

    I have never called a female child "Bossy." I don't think I've called any child bossy. I think I called them cuss words instead.

    When my kids do "stuff," usually "knock it off, you little shit" comes out of my mouth. It's a running joke around our house. We curse like truck drivers around here.

    I was 5 or 6 before I realized my name was Tim instead of Youlittleshit...

    I usually refer to kids as little bastards whether they are behaving or not...

    There is a flip side to that "B" word, It's called Brat! And it's not confined to these little precocious young skulls full of mush either....<smile>

    @miketost It's changed for the worse. Men in skinny jeans and not a sprig of hair on their bodies. What's that all about? Men ought to be men and women are just bossy. Libs need to get over it. I miss John Wayne...

    @2kingsdaughter I agree. You can't tell the difference between boys today and the girls, not to mention the 50 things they are according to Facebook. No wonder they are so confused. Smh

    @ahsum99ss FB is full of BS. Like I always say, if in doubt, just check out the equipment. Can't go wrong there. Well, you can in some cases, but that's a different topic.

    "When a little boy asserts himself, he's called a 'leader.' Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded 'bossy'".

    Not true. When a guy is overly assertive he's called an asshole. Also when was being bossy a bad thing? It has boss in the word! Meaning leader, upper management!

    Bossy is a negative trait, not just a negative connotation. Leadership and bossy are both adjectives, but they mean different things. A boss tells people what to do. A leader guides them in the direction they want them to go or shows them the path to make their own decisions in a positive way.

    My daughter has been accused of being bossy in the past and rightfully so. So what's the difference? Being bossy can be turned into leadership with proper counseling and reinforcement, and she does have the makings of a true leader.

    And boys can certainly be labeled as bossy or the A word, but hopefully not until they are older.

    You know those 1%ers, bosses, the horrible people the GOP loves should never be shown in a good way according to the left. How dare they employ us and pay 75% of the taxes.

    @Firestorm What's the A word Alpha male or A-hole? I don't keep up on what kids are called these days but I do know they can be a cruel bunch when they gang up. That's why I tell my boy to stay away from being part of a clique, and to stand on his own two feet for what he thinks is right.

    @JohnVicky The A word is a$$hole as following @IronicGuy's post. Alpha could be applicable as well, but I think we can all agree that either trait is characteristic of an A type personality.

    This is just more distracting from the left. The real issues like jobs, the economy, Russia and the lies are being pushed aside to fight the war on women. The make believe war...

    This article is bos... I mean has "executive leadership skills."

    Just kidding Lisa. I do not think the word "bossy" damages little girls, my experience here in the South in Louisiana, women pride themselves in being "bossy." They are generally nice enough to sometimes let us men still think we are the bosses though.

    Oh, Lord. Here we go with another 'NewSpeak' stab at the English language again. Little girls and little boys should be encouraged to be assertive while at the same time being polite and respectful of others. Let's not start manufacturing little shrews (girls) and Simon Legrees (boys) in elementary school.

    Are you guys kidding. Some kids are bossy. Boys and Girls both. Calling them what they are has a chance of stopping their overzealous behavior.

    In the real world, nobody gives a sh!t about your feelings. If being called bossy or any other word hurts your self esteem to the point that it damages you, then you're probably too much of a mental lightweight to survive society anyway. This is stupid.

    Thanks, but I was wrong. As I've tried and tried to tell people who call the politicians and bureaucrats idiots. They aren't the idiots we are. We're the idiots for letting them get away with their crimes against us. In this case, the destruction of a couple of generations of young people.

    @PhreedomPhan totally agree!! We choose to listen to them and raise a bunch of whuses who will simply submit to them because they are not tough enough to fight them. Why they never got tough? I guess this article answers that. Suits the higher ups just fine doesn't it?

    Get out of line and expect to get put in your place whether you're male or female, you're still a child and adults deserve your respect.

    There is and never will be such a thing as a level playing field for anyone. Life by design, is not level. Legislators and bureaucrats should understand this better than any of us as they all place themselves above us little people.

    "take a deep breath and say,'That girl's not bossy. She has executive leadership skills.'" I disagree that bossy = having executive leadership skills. Good bosses aren't bossy, although they might be as a last resort. Bossy bosses are dicks as a default condition. It's minimally effective in the long run because intimidated, unhappy workers tend to do just enough to get by.
