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

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.

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 bitches." You can ban the word bossy, but feel the need to make an entire song calling other women bitches and telling them they will never be like you…mmmmm ok….


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 "n----r" 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 »


Banning the word " Bossy"??? – First world problems eh……


The people leading and orchestrating this agenda are being bossy.

Ohio Croatian

It is disgusting how supposed "conservative" and P.C. "Liberals" are continually "bossy" with the commoners and tell us what to think and say.


I got 99 problems, and a bossy wife is one.


"Bow down Bitches! Bow bow down bitches!"


What if they ARE bossy? What a way to get men to accept women who may purposefully and nastilly being bossy ( as well as purposeful being the other word, and yes they do that.) as O.K! Hey, we can call men bossy, but if you call mean natured women bossy, they may be able to bring you up on harassment charges.


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.


Be Ambitious = to me that sounds like leave motherhood and be like one of us – a slave or worker, be childless and see even the one guy agrees too. Don't be bossy, boss people around and invite depopulation! Why sit at home with your kids when you can be successful like us and hav your nanny do it, or better yet no kids!!


The agenda is get ready to "shut up and serve" the elite power.


Bossy bossy bossy bossy bossy! Yeah! Bossy! Oh and f*** you Sheryl Sandberg, Beyonce and Condoleezza! 😀


Doesn't that fact that they are trying to ban the word bossy make them bossy.

they clearly have to much time on their hands if this is an actual campaign, what a load of BS and a complete waste of life.



OR we could just teach our young girls to not give a f*** what people say/think about you! You know, build them strong not hide them from the storm….ugh! Do you boo!


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 »


she is a puppet on strings … As stupid as she knows this campaign is she can't back out because she lost her ability to be bossy. Lol… This is retarded! Mind control is running out of strategies.


There are so many other words you can ban than bossy. Besides, if you act bossy you will be called bossy. So, actions speak louder than words. Yet, in this case we are banning the word bossy?


And then these so-called powers that be WILL ban a lot of words to the point in which they will even ban words like "idea", "freedom", "God", "expression" or even ART OR BIRTH…………….lolzzzzz…these guys are killing the very foundation of what's maybe left of us
