What was that debate?

What was that debate?

First of all, I want to reiterate that Bossy Cosmetics is NOT a political organization nor does it have a political position in any election.

However, given that this is my blog, as the founder, I did want to share how exasperated I was by watching that debate last night.  It was completely unwieldy and disappointing because neither candidate was able to fully answer any question that really mattered to those voters who remain undecided in this important election.

In watching it, I kept thinking that if President Trump were a woman and CONSTANTLY yelling and interrupting Former Vice President Biden, he'd be called "hysterical" or "emotional" or worse even "BOSSY."  I also thought that Biden in losing his cool and calling Trump a "clown" or telling him to "shut up" would be met with fury by the Left and Right, if he were a female candidate on that stage. 

In the midst of my discomfort and shock while watching the debate, I couldn't help thinking that we could have used a vibrant young woman on that stage but I guess that's wishful thinking.  

 

I'm with Viola Davis, bosses -- VOTE!!!!!!

Thanks for listening to my brief rant!

Love,

aisha

What's most exciting about this news is not everything else that I said above but her journey and the product that she created.  She was one of the early employees of dating app, Tinder, but left that company with a fair bit of drama and legal issues that resulted in s settlement.  But Whitney didn't let disappointment stop her from pursuing her dreams.  She went on to start Bumble, another dating app, whose core philosophy is empowering women to take the first move!  It's a simple different but it made ALL the difference and she created a juggernaut that will go beyond dating into a host of categories that we are yet to watch unfold.
