As much as I like Facebook, why is the "bossy" word only targeted at females? I have over the years worked for many female supervisors, and I never thought of any of them as being 'bossy". I've seen too many stereotypes of woman bosses on TV; you know, the castrating b**ch. I think the word bossy does apply to both genders. I wonder if, deep down inside, the COO of Facebook is a castrating b**ch.

Probably. But nothing that a good screwing can't cure.

The women who are busy campaigning for this crap are the kind of women that give real females a bad name!!! So sick of all of these silly causes. Suddenly everything seems to be a cause and everyone seems to have to unite. Being an individual is no longer acceptable in society. Facebook is about women of all ages posting their business for the world to see, being phony, and also being silly. Years ago girls were not allowed to be silly, let alone grown women. Years ago the whole world did not need to know an individual's business. Years ago, individuals did not require the attention from people that they would not walk across the street to see like they do now. Now we have celebrities on tv commenting on how it is not okay for a man to abuse a woman. People now need someone to tell them what they can and can not do, what they should and should not do, and they need to be told these things by celebrities, and facebook "friends!" Society has hit an all time low which no one wants to acknowledge as there is nothing on facebook about it and here are no commercials with celebrities participating in anti facebook or anti-follower campaigns. And yes, I am a hater......(years ago was called an individual with his/her own thoughts and opinions and who did not follow the crowd just because)....
so true

Best post yet! You are not alone. Just the feminist propaganda confusing their own gender that much more as to who and what they should see. You never see them say it's just great to be a mom. No wonder women today are more confused than ever.
