Boss Up, Daughter

Boss Up, Daughter is a game inspired by GAMERella’s Boss Up game jam. When I heard about the theme, I thought about what the fuck do I know about being a boss and then thought about my mother. This game conversation is a real conversation I had with her late one night when I was feeling insecure about working with others. I’ve been called bossy, controlling, full of myself, selfish, robotic and cold. And these are really gendered (or ableist in the case of robotic). It’s hard not to think about what words would be used to describe a man acting in the same way, or are there even words that anyone would bother using because it is so expected? My mom gives no shits about these sort of questions but she does set an example for bossing up.
