DO YOU KNOW WHAT I JUST REALIZED
If there were hunters out there like Sam and Dean, or a secret organization called Torchwood, or the Doctor showing up, or fairies or wizards or demigods or whatever,

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.
No, read the comments. See just what frightened people sound like when their power is challenged in the mildest way.
Not only are they incapable of hearing a pretty basic and non-confrontational message (using particular words to describe little girls inhibits the likelihood that they will pursue leadership, so let’s try not to do that), they instantly attack in the most vitriolic ways.
It’s a lovely video, and B at the end!! “I’m not bossy. I’m the boss.” This.
