Anonymous asked:I saw that thing about Ban Bossy today and I'm just like WHAT?! Its disappointing. There are bigger issues like abuse and horrible discrimination that women and girls face everyday. Banning a WORD isn't going to do anything about that!! Bossy is a WORD, abuse is a thing that leaves scars that never go away. Ban Bossy seems likes a waste of time. Time that is better spent elsewhere, like fixing issue that are more detrimental to self-esteem than spoken words.
as if “ban bossy” and preventing abuse are mutually exclusive
as if we haven’t already proven that words are extremely powerful
