Beyoncé, Condolezza Rice and Others in Campaign to Ban the Word “Bossy”. Seriously.

172

bossy

Lean In, an organization created by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg launched a campaign to ban the b-word. And by that I mean the word “bossy”. To do that, the organization recruited Beyoncé (who’s often involved in elite-funded campaigns), Jennifer Garner and political figure Condolezza Rice. In a cringe-inducing video, they’ve all “committed” to ban the word.

The video supposedly aims to encourage girls to become leaders. Instead of, like, encouraging girls to become leaders, the video actually says: “Let’s just ban the word bossy”. Really? That’s pretty bossy of them. Telling us what words to use and not to use. I’ve known quite a few women who were leaders but who were NOT bossy. They were great leaders with tact and vision who did not feel the need to boss and micro-manage people around because they could. I’ve also known women who were not leaders of anything but were nevertheless bossy. BOSSY. That’s the word to describe that type of person. Deal with it.

But seriously, when I heard about this campaign the first thing that immediately came to mind was the book 1984 and Newspeak. If you are not familiar with this book, here’s George Orwell’s description of Newspeak in the novel’s appendix.

Newspeak is the official language of Oceania, scheduled for official adoption around 2050, and designed to make the ideological premises of Ingsoc (Newspeak for English Socialism, the Party’s official political alignment) the only expressible doctrine. Newspeak is engineered to remove even the possibility of rebellious thoughts—the words by which such thoughts might be articulated have been eliminated from the language. Newspeak contains no negative terms. For example, the only way to express the meaning of “bad” is through the word “ungood.” Something extremely bad is called “doubleplus ungood.”

In short, in the 1984, Newspeak was developed by the Party to restrict human thought. When there is no word to describe an idea, the idea cannot even take form. In this sense the Ban Bossy campaign appears to take a page right out of 1984. In a broader sense, it is about using feminism to restrict, oppress and re-mold. It is not about equality, it is about creating, in the words of 1984 “thought criminals” and restricting language.

While I believe this superficial, mind-numbingly ridiculous campaign will fail miserably, there is nevertheless a great deal of financial and political power behind it.

As stated above, Lean In was created by Sheryl Sandberg an important figure of the power elite. Before becoming the COO of Facebook, she was Vice President of Global Online Sales and Operations at Google. Before that, she was chief of staff for the United States Secretary of the Treasury. More importantly, she is part of the Brookings Institution and the Council of Foreign Relations – two of the most important elite think tanks in the world. These two institutions alone are responsible for most of the  New World Order-friendly policies adopted by governments today. Sandberg also attended the 2012 Bilderberg meetings which is, as you might know, another elite hotspot.

Ban Bossy is therefore the product of an elite-funded organization which uses feminism as a means of control. To “empower” means to give power. Banning words is the opposite of giving power.

In other news “bossy” is the word of the day. Use it as much as you can today. Here’s a video that goes with the spirit of the day.

P.S. Bossy.

This s**t makes me want to spit in some people's faces. Isnt that destiny child girl married to a rapper who constantly spews "nigger" and "b***h" in his lyrics? How about banning those words? Oh, I forgot there is no multi-billion dollar industry surrounding "bossy". Plus, to disagree with or ask a black person to change their ways would be "racist", right?

And what about obama's wife? putting this much energy into this type of joke. What about banning mentally unstable people from buying firearms? what did we already give up on that? How about banning the use of military drones in non-combative countries? THIS IS A F*****G JOKE. Can't wait for a new president

I love the VC site, and promote it whenever I can. However, while I see what this article is saying, I also understand the more extensive thought process behind the "Ban Bossy" campaign. In the world in which we live, whatever characteristics women assert that go against the traditional grain of society's gender-based pigeon-holing, are perceived as "bad". I am a woman who speaks her mind freely and very articulately, so I get this and have dealt with it first-hand. I have always been "bossy", while a man in my position or shoes would be deemed a "leader" or as "taking charge". When a woman takes the reins, though, there's often a negative spin placed on the situation/circumstances, and she is frowned upon. When a woman steps up to the plate to lead, her assertiveness/aggressive nature is often looked upon as "b*tchy". There's a Pantene commercial that exemplifies this ideology fantastically well. And whether anyone wants to believe it or not, it's art imitating life. Sexism still exists, and the "Ban Bossy" platform is attempting to draw attention to this and lessen it…because if the term "bossy" was used as casually to refer to men, this particular problem wouldn't exist.

Well said! This is something what i thought about this campaign. And word b***h is used so many times on pop-cultur so this lesson could be also that being bossy you are then “b***h” and “b***h” is being used for girl who usually is sexy and strong woman but little bit bad and naughty. So young girls are programmed to what means being leader type of GIRL. I think this campaign is all about programming young girls and their parents who believes that this is real… It should not be so different if woman is strong-minded and have opinions. This campaign also tries to make people think like girls are been very kind and shy in last years. There is no real study to show that in all middle schools girls are always following boys. Its just some random fake fact to make people to think like that kind of situation have always been between boys and girls. When you get how much information this very bigworld wide campaign includes, you can imagine how many girls and mothers read this and start to think like this and accept this thoughts what they are sending. This is trying to control our… Read more »

is bossy a gender specific word? i work with children at a daycare and boys and girls get called bossy if theyre trying to push people around and tell people what to do. i dont think little boys are called "leaders" for being a litte a-hole. theyre just as bossy as the little female a-holes lol.

and beyonce (although i am a fan of her tunes…hey, they are catchy!) needs to stop. for a so-called "feminist" she has a song that repeats the phrase "bow down b*****s." You can ban the word bossy, but feel the need to make an entire song calling other women b*****s and telling them they will never be like you…mmmmm ok….

This campaign is entirely Sheryl Sandberg's personal, subjective thing. She said she was called bossy as a child, and this is her way of shutting those people up, instead of possibly looking in a mirror and learning something about herself from the way others perceive her. She IS bossy, and also an idiot. I'm a real world feminist, and I'm completely disgusted that she would hijack airtime away from women's real issues for this BS.

I can't help but feel that Beyonce is being made to be some saviour of women, deemed by young girls to be independent and powerful, and something to aspire too, so when she's stripping off onstage and rolling around in her thong, little girls will believe that's powerful and will aspire to that. It's all part of a pedo conditioning campaign. Beyonce is not the boss!..just a well payed employee.

I am late to reading this , but I think there is something that should be addressed… It might have been and I missed it, but no matter. ^-^ This little campaign as well as the other laws that have been passed in Canada… and talks being held in the U.S. all come back to one thing well many things.. but for this part just one)… Freedom of speech. Now in the U.S. you automatically have a right to freedom of speech. It is one of the many bittersweet blessings of living in this country. Haha!This silly campaign is not about banning a word… It is about being able to control what is said. Which I believe is rather ridiculous since humans will choose to say whatever they feel like saying… Against the law or not… There will always be someone who does not wish to comply with the law… Someone who adheres to it like glue…. And then those who really don’t “care” at all as long as it doesn’t affect their day to day lives. Regardless of all that if it is possible to control one word… banish it from use… then what’s to say more words cannot… Read more »

I think the whole campaign is nothing more than a feeler put out by the elites to gauge the general public's willingness to give up their first amendment rights. If there is enough favorable response to the ban bossy idea they know they can move onto another project which will up the last one and push the 'general consensus' even closer to their goal, which is probably similar to what VC was mentioning with newspeak or just outright policing of speech.
This sort of slow movement of societal norms from one of God, or righteousness based, to one of carnal or humanistic based is called diaprax. In the USA and many western countries diaprax has been used to great effect to change society's views about sex…a good example is homosexuality. 40 years ago homosexual celebrities were closeted, schools had nothing to do with sex education, p*********y was considered shameful. But now these things are celebrated by media and education. As a matter of fact, one is called homophobic if they don't support homosexual agendas in schools and the workspace….but I digress.

It completely disgusts me , y are people so brainwashed by Beyoncé ? As everyone else has pointed out , I'm less concerned with the word "bossy" which I don't even think young girls use anymore, and more concerned with young girls taking advice from Beyoncé . Her new album ? Drunk in love? Her music videos? Pick ur audience Beyoncé your music is very ADult basically xrated I don't think we should worry about bossy. She as well as her husband throw out the b* word & many other obscenities !! Now see how many girls under 18 are obsessed with her & her music & image. We need a PSA about this !!!

There are times when a supervisor, group leader, or a teacher, or someone in charge has to be bossy. Or, should I say demanding? Controlling? With humans, if you forbid use of certain words, we may think of even worse replacements.

Pffffft, just when you think it can't get any more ridiculous -_- I'm so tired of this s**t: There are already more women in the world then man. 'Who run the world? Girls!' Okay Beyonce, we f*****g get it already, how about we, I don't know, focus on EQUALITY?! Roosevelt, Lincoln, Martin Luther, Nelson Mandela: how you are missed. AND YET, even if they are acknowledged, how come anyone hardly ever follows their example, even if it's just sharing the knowledge they passed on to us. This world is F****D UP, BUT WE NEED TO SPEAK UP AND BE A UNITY! It doesn't have to be hard: The movie Pay it forward anyone? For those of you who don't know it, I'd extremely recommend it.

By the way: I'm a girl and normally very soft spoken, but after reading this article, I make it my goal to become 'bossy' 😉

So if bossy is banned, what shall we do with the word that replaces it in the same context ?
Shall we just ban all the words in the English language because they could be misused ?
Why not tackle the underlying problem of chauvinism instead ? Oh I forgot, that would mean changing this chauvinist system.

Yes, Newspeak, where we are told that slanderous and racist terms like "African American" in lieu of "black" or "Native American" in lieu of "indigenous" will stop racism and discrimination.

They don't give a s**t about women – I bet what they're really trying to do is stop us complaining about abuse of authority from those in power and being ordered around.
Bossy means domineering and dictating it does not mean assertive, confident or empowered – there's a big difference – banning the word bossy essentially blurs the lines and open the way for further liberties to be taken.
I don't actually think they would be able to ban the word though but the fact that they're trying is worrying.

Go ahead, take the word 'bossy' from my vocabulary, I've got a dozen more obscene words to replace it with, beginning with Beyoncé's husband's favorite b-word…B*tch. Maybe something from his song, b*****s and sisters? "So just, take off your shirt, don't hit me with that church s**t (B***h)" 🙂 Very progressive Jay Z, your wife must be very proud of your respect towards independent women. Apparently, a Times journalist counted the amount of times Jay Z used the word b***h in his lyrics. " 109 out of 217 songs contain the word “B***h.” That’s 50.2% of Jay-Z’s entire lyrical output". Well, Beyoncé, I say 'shut the f**k up', because until your husband stops using derogatory words and imagery towards woman, you really shouldn't be telling the rest of us how to express ourselves. As for Condoleezza Rice… if these people think for a second that I will have any respect for a woman that used her 'bossy' nature to commit war crimes, then they are delusional. Ladies living in celebrity LALALand, please stop giving feminism a bad name and grow the f**k up. Instead of censoring a word that means nothing, go and ACTUALLY make our society a safe, fair,… Read more »

How strange that these women claim that calling girls "bossy" keeps them from becoming leaders and yet all these women say they are leaders who were called "bossy" growing up. Which is it? Does "bossy" hold girls back or push them forward/have nothing to with them becoming leaders or not? It's almost as if they're saying most women can't handle being called bossy and therefore can't succeed unless the few special women, who had the strength and smarts to overcome this discrimination, erase the word from our vocabulary so that all the rest of the poor, weak and stupid women/girls can blindly enjoy the placebo of feeling like they've done something empowering.

"I'm not bossy. I'm the boss." The boss? Over whom? I supposed manipulating people by controlling what they're allowed to say and not say does make you their bossy boss. (If they follow your orders, that is) A true leader trains people to become leaders, including helping them learn to cope with adversity/opposition. They don't just bark an order at all humanity to stop doing something that may have hurt their feelings decades ago. That's what dictators do.

I was called bossy when I was a kid in grade 4 and it pissed me off. There was one boy who I had a crush on and no matter what I did he didn't notice me. I guess my bossiness was learnt from my dad as he was the head honcho and still is in our family. Well, I didn't care that I was bossy – I got hurt initially, but after that I just said, YES I AM! :))

This is seriously so stupid. I will NOT ban the word "bossy" out of my vocabulary just because some women are being oversensitive about it. A majority of the people don't view women as bossy if they have leadership qualities. I've been told many times before that I have leadership qualities, and never once has anyone ever told me I'm bossy, and I'm a woman! I hate the restrictions we have on our language and what we speak. I mean c'mon, banning the word bossy? It's a load of BS. I 100% agree with the comment Erika made. It's hypocritical for an Illuminati sellout like Beyonce to try and encourage women to be independent and free, when she's just a puppet controlled by strings. Feminism has gone too far, and feminists are becoming simply delusional. It makes no sense to me why people are focused on women being called "bossy" (which never really happens, so the "bossy" campaign is an invalid campaign), when we could be trying to stop the actual crimes against women, like r**e and abuse! Why focus on one tiny, five letter word, when we need to focus on the bigger things?

Thought about this further. It is making a big noise about a non-problem. If only being called bossy was the extent of girls' problems at school. I think that it is an attack on the post-feminist movement by the architects of the original feminist one. They are wary of women subsituting into homemaking and raising children as a lifestyle choice so they are trying to push them all back into wage slavery once again so that their children can be raised by agenda-led institutions once again. Economic policy against mothers staying at home is also pushing the NWO agenda in the same direction. This is a test run with an uncontroversial word. I wonder what the next word campaign will be and whether it will become a weekly, national fixture until they have achieved 1984.

It is important for people to realize that there is nothing wrong or even negative about Torah-based Judaism – it is the zionists headed by the Rothschilds who follow the Talmud who are the lost sheep and leading the world into this mess. They are actually born into Hollywood Freemasonry and initiated into it for life. My other half told me all about his experiences in that world since birth and I have loads of personal information. He is an amazing man of God now and completely reformed but he will never say that he is not a freemason because you proudly assume that identity from cradle to grave.

And Condomsleaza Lice genuine psychopath to compare her look now to her looks around 9-11 in 2001 and her pathological LIES.

Look up every one of these women and look at photos of them a decade ago and compare to now and You'll get the drift quick on physical demon possession of these Luciferian Mystery Babylon harlots. This is the feminist Jezebel spirit that has attacked the cult of the Charismatics within Christianity with so many Eastern Star female Freemasons like You see in this ad above.

I see this as an attempt to shut down any disagreement as the elite will now promote Hillary as the next President. If they shut down debate and make the word bossy sexist, then any opposition to her is already at a disadvantage. Notice if you disagree with the policies of President Obama …you're a racist. Disagree with Hillary or her policies …you're a sexist.

Oh, and Beyonce…why don't you tell that husband of yours to ban the words B—h & h-s from his music. Those words are certainly not empowering women!!

I think this article is wide of the mark. Women have historically been undermined, especially in represetations of positions of power.

While i don't think banning the word "bossy" will achieve much, i think their aim is noble, in further opening up opportunities for women & ethnic minorities.

I don't think this article, trying to put some sort of NWO slant on this lady & her organisation, really helps the plight of woman, earnestly trying to make the playing fields level, for women & not just for upper class white males.

lolololo

I think you miss the point. While I don't disagree with you, at the same time, banning a word is just outright silly! I have rarely if ever been called bossy, by anyone but myself, maybe brash and loud, by others but rarely bossy. I am, in fact, very bossy too, I don't see it as bad per say being called bossy. I think trying to restrict society's speech because it offends a few is silly. I never died away from leadership because I like leading even if ppl called me names, that's just life, ppl will always criticize others and you cannot stop it unless you seek to run every human being in to the ground until they no longer have free will. Which is actually, exactly what 1984 is about at its core. But by the end of the book it does just because government tried to control ppl's thoughts, it does mean they can 100% succeed, that is impossible, but it is possible to run ppl down until they stop caring. Truth is I am a woman and I deal with other women as little as possible b/c few of them have learned to control their impulses… Read more »

".. further opening up opportunities for women & ethnic minorities."

its just funny how all u "feminists" seem to pretend we are still living in the 50s.

pls tell me, in what jobs exactly are women (or ethnic minorities) not allowed? i mean except in such lovely countries as saudi arabia or israel.
these campaigns are a joke because they are not targeted at those countries. they are targeted at the "west", where we have equality since decades. there are many female political leaders and megarich female bosses. and they are as corrupt as men.

feminism isnt about equality. its about (lesbian men-hating) women dominating men.

Feminist

You obviously have a very narrow knolwege of feminism if you believe it is about 'lesbian men-hating women'. Really. It makes me depressed when I see people like you talking abou feminism. Failing to see how in many cases women are still treated as 'the second sex', even at the west, proves that you are very ignorant.

Grieves

I can certainly understand where you're coming from, and I'm not blind to the fact that 'equality', as much as many men angry with the changing dichotomy of the sexes would like to scream and shout is long since achieved, hasn't been… and maybe never will be. Women should definitely have more opportunities to take up leadership roles, especially in the political spectrum; they shouldn't have to alter their character and their attitudes and completely forsake the feminine to conform with the male-dominated opinions, policies and structures of politics in order to have a strong political voice. The strong anti-woman sentiment present in many of the comments posted here seems to reinforce your idea that the content of this article as presented could be taken as a criticism of a move toward equality itself. Clearly that's how several male readers perceived it. That all said, there's a surface message to this advertisement and an underlying theme. As positive if not ill-devised as the surface-message is, it being: "Women deserve a stronger leadership role and to grow up in an environment which encourages that, so lets Ban the word Bossy..!", it's oddly apparent how futile a gesture it is.

*head desk* I actually don't like these kinds of campaigns because they are actually counter productive to what they're trying to achieve. So apparently, girls who are trying to be leaders, decides that being themselves isn't good enough and tries to ban words such as "bossy" altogether. You're just making women look more moronic. And I'm a guy.

By the way VC, awesome article as always. Have a nice day.

Put all of your money, time and effort behind banning the word "bossy", whilst women are called b!tch3s in music videos, women in the music industry prove how dressing like a w***e and being submissive to men's sexual fantasies can make you famous and rich, and women's magazines are stuffed with frivolous articles and adverts on having perfect skin and hair, wearing the latest shoes and clothes and pleasing your man.

lol, yeah, couldn't agree more. A woman who's only claim to fame is sacrificing her integrity as a talented singer to pump out super-sexualized tripe and support a branch of the music industry that is utterly and blatantly obsessed with the degradation and objectification of women then turning around and acting like a role-model for female leadership is a darkly laughable irony.

Very strange stuff. First of all I've never known 'bossy' to apply only to girls/women, or to be a descriptor for ambitious or assertive behavior. I don't think I've used or heard anyone use the word bossy since I was a child in fact, and only recall it being used by myself and other children as a descriptor for adults/older children, female or male, who were bossing us around. As adults terms like 'bossy' inevitably fall to the wayside, and 'bossy' people we come across receive somewhat more colorful descriptors. I was never a fan of 1984, thought 'Big Brother' was too blatantly evil and jackbooted to suspend disbelief as to how it could possibly be allowed to come about, and thought 'NewSpeak' was a generally silly concept, one that would never prove effective given language is just one of many means of expressing ideas, and a vocabulary or lack thereof by no means restricts the scope of free thought. The whole book seemed to me just a ham-fisted Fantasy novel sans elves, goblins, magic and heroes… an Evil Empire straight out of Lord of the Rings or Star Wars, with no Frodo or Luke to set things right.

"the only key features absent being the open and unabashed domination of Corporate power over both politics and religion"

Seriously? Corporate power has dominated politics since they whacked JFK. Reagan twisted religion to serve politics which serves the corporate powers.

Grieves

"Open and unabashed" being the key phrases. Indeed, Corporate power unquestionably dominates the political landscape, and is even making bold forays into religious culture, but the veil is still in place. When you go to the polls, you're still voting for the democratic party or the republican party, the liberal party of the conservative party… you're not voting for the Apple party or the EXXON party yet, at least not on paper… nor are people praying to Steve Jobs when they go to church (though they seem to be constantly praying to him in the media.)

I am confused at what this article is trying to get at. Are you saying women who are leaders are just bossy? Because the video, to me, speaks more about female empowerment. So what's the problem? Do you have a problem with women identifying themselves as a leader, and not just a female who's being bossy? No offense VC, but you're starting to sound like that guy who says he gets "friend-zoned" when a woman exercises her right to say no.

This article is just stating the fact that there is a campaign set to ban the word "bossy" and VC is explaining the mastermind behind it and how this is a step towards Newspeak. Do you get it now?

The point is that they purposely confuse the meaning of words. This is actually one of their defined tactics. With this they want to confuse the human mind. By not knowing the right words to things, we will become confused at how to react to them, how to value them, what to fight for, what to drop, etc. It creates unhealthy people.

…then it may be worthwhile to to read some very important articles available here on VC, research outside of the mainstream allowances for information that profoundly interupts your ability to decipher the very important and clear message this article is exposing. Being open to information that pushes your buttons will allow you to see things in a different way which in turn will open more possibilities for learning which will clear up your confusion – and help those around you at the same time as being collectively helpful for the whole.
The fact that you don't understand this article is a clear indication.
Hopefully you learn (in time) what your confusion indicates and you make the effort to alleviate it; not only for you – but for all.

There is definitely a difference between being a leader and bossy, that was one of the original ideas in this article. Being a leader, or being alpha, is taking charge and empowering others. It means looking after other people and bringing out the best in others. Being bossy is essentially saying, "It is my way or the highway". It is about control. Some people are control freaks and have no intention of actually leading others. They aren't open to suggestions, or feedback. They lead for the sake of being in power. Bossy by definition is "Tending to give orders to others, especially when unwarranted; domineering." Keyword here "unwarranted". Leading is one thing, trying to control others when a person doesn't want to be "lead" is another. A person can technically be a leader, bossy or both. Bossy is more of an attitude than an act or role. However the actual point of this article is showing that calling for a ban of the word bossy is in fact being bossy. It is an unwarranted order to change the lexicon that describes what people actually think and feel about a person who is trying to control them through a domineering attitude.… Read more »

VC doesn't sound at all like the 'friend-zoned' guy who can't understand why a woman would say no. I don't like what you've implied as I think what you've said is purposely designed to shut down critical thinking and debate around this issue. Go take your unwanted BRAND of feminism elsewhere. I call myself a feminist but people like you make me cringe. Either you've genuinely misunderstood the whole article or you have an agenda. My guess is the latter as per my observation in the previous paragraph. He's not saying that women who are leaders are just bossy. He is pointing out that it is reasonable to say that these certain women involved in this campaign are being hypocritical because they are being bossy by trying to ban the use of the word bossy. Do you not see the irony in this? This video does not speak to female empowerment whatsoever. It's the opposite in fact. This video and campaign are about control. It is anti-freedom of speech and thought. These are not conducive to a free and healthy society. The ideals behind this video are anti-feminism. Also just a quick observation… why do certain feminists use the term… Read more »

I agree with your point. It is hard to form a valid opinion – unless you have lived in each country of the world with enough time to understand each culture – Which is probably impossible.

Generally, people end up deciding what is best for other countries based on what they see, hear and read in media.

This goes for Occupation and Wars also.

"Ban Bossy is therefore the product of an elite-funded organization which uses feminism as a means of control. "

Are you trying to imply that feminism is an elite control method? I think I must be mis-reading this due to the fact that most of your analysis calls out sexism in the media. I mean, how can you be totally knowledgeable about sexist media representation, sexualization/objectification, control of womens bodies etc but then say people speaking against it are also a tool of the elite?

Unless of course you're saying that the elite is simply hijacking and appropriating feminist rhetoric, which makes far more sense here.

Mary

The other thing I will say is that there is definitely a bias against girls who have even the slightest amount of confidence and assertiveness. However I agree that this is NOT the right response to it – we shouldn't change the meanings of words and honestly I don't get our culture's obsession with wanting to be "leaders" anyway. It obviously just leads to social control.

Woman in charge
Woman in charge

Wow. You people are reaching. This isn't newspeak, it's called being politically correct. Words/language are always evolving. Certain words gain new meanings and connotations. Apparently "bossy" is becoming a slur, so there's a campaign to stop it. It's true that calling a young girl bossy may discourage her from being assertive. It's annoying that men get called "in charge" while women are "bitchy and bossy."

No need to use the word all the time.

I think y'all are confused. When guys step up and take initiative, they are leaders. When girls do it, everyone says their bossy. The point isnt to literally ban the word bossy. They're just saying that instead of using the word to describe a strong woman, they should use leader instead. Bossy can still be used, they're not saying to destroy the word completely, just in regards to woman of power.
