How am I supposed to save money when there is a friggin smoothie cafe in my massage school?! Who has that kind of self control?
I hope you have a great day today.
You are lovely, okay?
bearingashes said: Buuuuut that’s the point. It’s to remove social constructs and make people understand that assertive female behavior isn’t inherently “bossy” unless it’s actually bossy. It’s not to ban the word. It’s to stop the dismissal of women and girls.
and i completely agree with that idea, obviously.
but they are going about it completely wrong.
stop telling people what to do. this campaign in its self is “bossy”.
teach. don’t control.
bearingashes said: It has to do with the fact that it has a negative connotation to it, and is centered on women and girls and almost never towards men. It’s not about feeling bad, it moreso brings up the impact of gendered language and its cultural influence.
the point to my frustration is not the connotation of the word. i just don’t like being told what to do or say. if someone is being “bossy” then they are being bossy… instead of teaching people not to use the word, let’s teach them how to treat one another. that goes both ways.
i was going to do my hair and makeup…
and then i realized i don’t give a shit what anyone at work and massage therapy school thinks about me; so i decided to just lay in bed for twenty minutes instead.
when im dead sext me through a ouija board
bearingashes said: Yeah it is just a metaphorical statement that’s like 100% pro-woman
cyderpunk said: wait are they actually trying to ban the word bossy i thought it was metaphorical?
it is! but they claim is that is kills a young girl’s self esteem.
what?!! bossy is a great word!! i strive to be bossy.
teach all genders that being the boss is something to work for, not feel bad about. own the shit, don’t work for it.
but really, where does it end? i am just annoyed.
Banning the word “bossy” is so fucking wrong. There’s a little thing called “freedom of speech” for a reason. As long as I am not slandering or defaming someone, I can say whatever the fuck I want. That’s how rights work.
This government is so fucked. Once you started chopping away at our rights, we have nothing left. Those are put in place to protect us, you fucking idiots.
Take away our rights. Fuck me harder.
