First lady Michelle Obama on board with #BanBossy campaign

As Twitchy reported, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Girl Scouts USA CEO Anna Maria Chávez have launched a campaign to ban the word “bossy” from Americans’ vocabularies, saying the word stops girls from seeking leadership roles. Of course, Michelle Obama is on board as well, along with Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

We can get behind the effort to raise girls to value leadership skills and assertiveness, but we’re not sure a top-down ban on the B-word is the way to go. But what other options are there?
