Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
don’t read the youtube comments on this.You want to know why this person is encouraging you not to read the comments? Because some of the comments are the truth about how stupid this shit is. Its like “I’m offended you called me bossy so I’m going to be EVEN MORE BOSSY and promote the banning of the word “Bossy” to make myself feel better!” Because its not just men that call women bossy. Women call other women bossy if they don’t like them and guess what. Bossy is very much a personality trait to narcissists people. And I honestly doubt people lose their confidence from being called bossy. I would talk that person down and say “No, I’m taking initiative.” What this does is showing that women are incapable of taking insults and must rely on censorship to get what they want.
And there’s a word for a bossy man, it’s called an asshole. This campaign only coddles women to make sure no one says bossy instead of teaching women not to care what people think. If you fall apart after being called named, then you’re not strong enough to be a leader. This is a waste of time and money. There are girls from developing countries who legally aren’t considered human beings. Being called bossy is not the end of the world. And, bossy is not the same as being a leader. If a woman is called bossy, she’s only likely being rude and inconsiderate to other people. Unfortunately, first world society lumps being a cruel woman is being empowered woman.I know right. And I read the comment sections specifically the top comments and guess what? NONE OF THE COMMENTS ARE SEXIST. The top comments ARE FROM WOMEN POINTING OUT THE HYPOCRISY OF THIS WHOLE THING! THAT’S WHY TUMBLR DOESN’T WANT YOU READING THE COMMENTS! TUMBLR IS A HIVE MIND WHERE THEY DON’T WANT YOU ACTUALLY LOOKING AT THE TRUTH IN FRONT OF YOU.
Bold the truth
Besides, saying that women get less air time and are interrupted in class is false and stupid. Teachers usually make sure that everyone in class participates by putting down a calling system, or setting up a point system for the amount of times a student answers.

There will never be a time when jokes about that missing flight will be funny. This is not a television show, and this is not about your stupid fandom. There are 239 people missing and making it about Lost or Doctor Who is not the way to handle it.
People make jokes to deal with things

Anxiety isn’t a fashion statement it’s a miserable disorder with actual real uncontrollable symptoms that eat you alive and distance you from the people you love so stop making it “trendy”
Anonymous asked: I was just on your blog and like a week ago someone said you're anti-sj. if you're anti-sj, what are you pro? (this is a legitimate question).
Anti-sj is kind of a term that sounds more extreme than it is and probably also doesn’t cover what most anti-sj blogs or people that agree with it are about.
We’re not anti social justice, or against help and equality or anything like that. We’re anti the aggressive counterproductive “pseudo helping” attitude that sometimes runs rampant on tumblr under the guise of social justice. It just became kind of easy to call the people against that anti-sj and most blogs ran with it.
So for the record, I’m not against social justice itself, I’m against the toxic and stupid tumblr brand. Let’s see if I can find a few examples real quick.
[safety is now discrimination]
Or that time that people running a blog all about how white people food is shit and stupid accidentally made fun of asian food on there and quickly apologized because you can’t insult asian food it was only garbage if it was white.
Or that time death treats were sent towards a innocent tumblr blogger who posted a photo of herself in a kimono because she was “culturally appropriating” despite if being a gift from her host family abroad.
Or that time that there was a news report about the death of a white 9 year old boy over racial bullying and people responded with “cry more white tears”
Or every single time when someone claims to be offended and it’s used as a excuse to bully or threaten everyone who opposes them. And then saying that you are silencing and tone policing if people object to hostile bullying behavior.
Or absolutely annihilating anyone over something offensive they’ve said in the past and deeming people problematic and trash because god nobody ever makes a mistake or says something wrong ever in their lives, right?
Basically the toxic attitude that isn’t helping anyone and has driven people away from good causes. No room for debate, questioning things isn’t allowed. Hiding behind social justice as a shield of immunity in general and abusing that. Seeking problems behind everything and using it as an excuse for abuse, aggression, restricting and bullying.
That is what I am against.
