Quickie & Coffee- Bossy Little Ladies

I’m one of the good guys and I just missed this one.  Please, ladies, charge this to my head and not to my heart.  I never meant any harm.

So on behalf of all of the good guys everywhere who never considered the impact when referring to aggressive and driven little girls as “bossy” I apologize.

It never occurred to us that we were stifling growth, misdirecting focus or corrupting a girls’ confidence.  I’ve seen a few things recently that made me think twice about this issue.  Most notably, if we didn’t have this great big blind spot in our cultural consciousness, we might have elected Hilary Clinton to the presidency. Instead, we have a raging Trumpster fire on the White House lawn.  It will take a long time to atone for that disaster but it begins with a simple and honest apology.  Please forgive us. “Bossy” is gone forever.

∞ Thanks again for checking in-  Do your thing today and I’ll see you tomorrow  π

  1. Yes, yes, yes! Bossy in girls is leadership is boys! Assertiveness in boys is overbearingness in girls. These views not only stifle our girls, they cripple them. Let’s embrace in girls the qualities that we adore in our boys. #Homerun
