Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
don’t read the youtube comments on this.
Okay this seriously needs to get promoted because it came on the radio this morning and my mum went on a huge rant about how ridiculous it was and that nobody ever worries about being ‘bossy’. I countered this with “What sounds more negative, bossy or a good leader” and she froze. She still refuses to admit there’s a difference in language used to describe girls and boys.

Just a PSA about Dyslexia, since someone desided to correct my spelling on facebook.
I want to add that sometimes they can develop speech impairments. I don’t have dyslexia myself, but I have two brothers who do, one of which has a speech impairment because of his dyslexia. He’s gotten better through speech therapy, but he still won’t go and ask for things himself because of bullying people in authority have inflicted on him for his impairment.
My Dad has it and has also mentioned that for him he has trouble reading as he understands the words, but it isn’t registering.
So it’s as the OP says, not all dyslexic people are the same. I have 3 in my immediate family who are all different, and even many other family members on my father’s side.
If your friend has a type with a speech impairment, and they’re okay with you helping them, you may want to speak up for them. I know growing up I was the one who would say things for my brother as I served as his ‘translator’ when we were growing up.
But always make sure your help is welcome.

HOW IN THE WORLD DID SHE TALK LIKE THIS BACK THEN AND END UP HOSTING A SHOW TEARING APART WHAT PEOPLE LOOK FOR A FRIGGING LIVING????
I am so thirsty for emotional and physical intimacy with someone
I want to nuzzle their neck and lay entwined on my bed and lazily kiss their lips and make them food get to know every single curve and contour they have
I want to touch someone with my finger tips and make them feel loved
To not become a person that only focuses on his studies,
To not think that money is all,
To be able to play safely in the neighborhood allies,
To not be sick and therefore grow healthy,
To be happy everyday,
For all of these desires to come true.

You hear that? That is the sound of my heart breaking.
