The ‘B’ Word | National Review Online: "I’m going to go out on a limb and say that it sounds like Sandberg bossed her siblings around. Children tend not to like having their play “organized” imperiously by other children. Hence the age-old playground cry: “You’re not the boss of me!” — one that’s directed at girls and boys alike.
So Sheryl Sandberg was a bossy girl; she was called bossy; she grew up to become a fabulously wealthy executive of a Fortune 500 company. Therefore the future professional success of women in America depends on our banning the word “bossy.”"
