Who runs the world?

Apparently there's a petition to ban the word Boss and Bossy, even considerations to re-examine the word Bitch and the connotations surrounding it. Personally? I don't like these words. Bossy is a word that only ever seems to be directed at women and Bitch can't be used without there being some venom behind it. Also, what are the male equivalents to these words? A man can be a boss, but why have stereotypes turned a female boss into a derogatory term?
Just a thought.
