Who in their right mind would encourage ANY child to be that way? Sorry, being an asshole in response to other people being assholes is NOT effective parenting.

You completely miss the point of this campaign. It's NOT telling girls to play nice. It's telling society, "don't label them as bossy when they act like leaders." Bossy is a terrible, negative term. No one of either gender should be encouraged to be 'bossy' - BOTH genders should be taught to lead in effective, non abusive ways. Society SHOULD, however, stop putting females who take charge down. Women should not be encouraged to 'be bitches' or be bossy - same goes for men. It's ridiculous when women 'take down' other women because they misunderstand their message. We should be celebrating the fact that Sheryl brings this conversation to the table, rather than saying she's an entitled, wealthy woman who is out of touch with reality.
