When I was a child, "Bossy" was a cow's name. (It comes from ancient Greek.) Now it's one of those words we use to shame girls for acting in ways we'd praise if boys acted that way, and it works even less well on me than most of those because of the old image I have for it. For those who do not have that advantage, Amanda Marcotte points out why it's a stupid word.
