If ever there is a sign of the feminization of America, it could be that one "Ban Bossy" celebrity spokesman is former Gen. Stanley McChrystal. That's right; the former head of NATO command in Afghanistan -- whose swagger and irreverent attitude toward the Obama White House was so pronounced that he had to resign -- has been reduced to piggybacking onto a campaign that exhorts little girls not to let themselves be stereotyped and suggests that teachers conduct "no interruptions" conversations so that every child has a chance to speak.

A wartime general wants to ban bossy? Why even have an army?

"Confidence and competence win the day no matter what uniform you wear," McChrystal shares. Out of the service, he's all earnestness, no bluster.

The situation is, after all, simple. When a man calls you bossy, tell him he's right -- and he should get you a cup of coffee.
