Gutfeld on ‘Ban Bossy’ Campaign: "Teach Them to Say, ‘Damn Right, I’m Bossy, Now Carry My Books Home'"
The hosts of “The Five” tonight discussed Sheryl Sandberg’s “Ban Bossy” campaign.
Sandberg says the word “bossy” discourages little girls from becoming leaders.
“When a woman demands that a word be banned, aren’t they proving the point? They’re bossy,” Greg Gutfeld said in his monologe.
“Assuming that girls need protection from a word perpetuates female weakness,” Gutfeld said. “Better to teach them to say ‘Damn right, I’m bossy. Now carry my books home from school.’”
Dana Perino said that “bossy” turns into “the other ‘B’ word.”
“This is a stupid campaign, but it’s a relevant debate because more women are making more money, more women are in positions of power, and so that’s why I think the discussion is somewhat relevant. However, I was called bossy when I was very little, I didn’t really care,” Andrea Tantaros said.
