Bossy has been getting a bad rap these days, because it’s mostly used to put down girls for qualities and behaviours that might otherwise be called leadership.
I say “be bossy”; let your leadership shine.
Erin Brenner calls this “being brave.” At least, that’s what I equate bossy with.
But when editing, you’d better flag bossy as biased language. Bossy, in this week’s “Canadian, Eh?” column on Copyediting.com.
I think copyeditors have to be braver. In reality, everything we do is only a suggestion. #GrammarChat
