Beyoncé too bossy in #BanBossy campaign? (Video)

Beyoncé is leading the charge, along with Jane Lynch and Condoleeza Rice (among others) to ban the word "Bossy" from the English language for good.

But comments on the YouTube video, posted by the Lifetime channel on March 9, seem to indicate that some think Queen Bey is being too bossy herself.

The campaign, going under the hashtag #BanBossy, aims to change the way young girls think about ambition and stop young boys from advancing the stereotype that women only belong in the kitchen.

Apparently, the end result will be to allow young women to dream about leadership roles and empower them to achieve without the constraints society puts upon girls as they are growing into womanhood.

Beyoncé is easily the most famous of the seven women and two men leading the charge to have the word banned from language and, therefore, by extension, from its negative effect on young women's attempts to mold themselves into leaders.

It's all well and good, even a noble effort. But there are plenty of comments on the video indicating that not everyone is buying in to the concept.

Unfortunately, most of those are unprintable here, using words that have already been banned. In polite company at least.

Maybe they think that Beyoncé herself is being too "bossy"?
