    You think violence is more powerful than words?

    Think of it like this: Violence creates external fear, you can run from it. Words will cause fear from the inside. You can't run from words.

    An easy way to understand it would probably be:
    physical pain = quick death
    psychological pain = slow unending torture

    I personally prefer the first one.

    Sounds like people need to get a life
    100% agreed, if a man or a woman is bossy what's the problem with calling them that? How is that an offence any way?
    Some one who really is bossy and is not trying to put up a front would probable enjoy being called that any way...

    arguably, it's not the word, but the underlying very influential stereotype of competency of women being frequently negatively correlated with amiability and vice versa.

    people argue, " look at how successful so and so is" but fail to see how many fail to use their degrees, are not mentored to leadership positions, or have the support to achieve.

    the struggle is biased and it affects overall productivity.

    so, it's not that people are evil, nor does it denigrate those who are successful, but how do we better open people's eyes to inherent bias in the system and best utilize highly trained resources?
