As women age, many of the same gendered insults used to describe little girls, carry into the workplace. While it may be flattering to call a little girl bubbly, once a woman has reached a certain point in her life, that comment is no longer becoming. The term bubbly is used to describe a really happy, perky, almost annoying person someone who cannot be taken seriously. For a woman working in the professional field, she wants to be taken seriously and for someone to identify her as bubbly, completely negates any professionalism she has displayed. The word in itself is a frilly, vapid term that has no intonation of seriousness. While bubbly is commonly used when describing children, it is not appropriate to describe women. These gendered based insults are used to put women down so that they don’t become a threat to the patriarchal order.
