What Does It Mean To Do Something “Like A Girl”? [VIDEO]
What would you think if someone said, “You throw like a girl,” or, “You run like a girl”? Would they be insulting you?
I think society sees it that way. It seems like a powerless thing to imply about someone. But when did it start to be a bad thing to do something like a girl?
I love this video. I know it’s a commercial. But at least it says something positive about the people that buy their product.
As a dad with a daughter, I hope and pray that the young girls in this video never have their vision of what it’s like to do something “like a girl” changed. I hope that they grow up feeling powerful and able. nd vice versa, I hope that young boys who maybe aren’t as strong as the others don’t have to feel this kind of shame either.
