On Monday, Dean caught wind of Beyoncé’s participation in the FLOTUS-approved campaign to ban the word “bossy.” Because, you know, nothing helps girls develop leadership skills like the asinine banning of words. “I’m not bossy, I’m the boss,” Beyoncé declares in her endorsement of #BanBossy.
Dean pointed out the laughable feminist hypocrisy in a series of tweets about Bey and her husband, Jay Z. Like a boss:
But that’s, like, empowerment or something. Nothing at all like uttering the word “bossy.”
Dean also retweeted these tweets.
One Twitter user tried to bansplain the news all Vox-style:
Dean also noted what he called the “ASTOUNDING” irony of the #BanBossy movement.
She’s not the boss of us, either.
Own it, ladies!
