“Meninists” Are Starting #LikeABoy For Some Fucking Reason

By Betch Waldorf

Yesterday, Always premiered a commercial at the Super Bowl launching their “#LikeAGirl” campaign, where they're basically trying to not make the phrase “like a girl” be an insult. For some reason people are acting like they are fucking cast members of “The Sandlot” and think it’s still totally relevant to use that phrase as an insult.


 

 

Enter the very originally titled “Meninists” who are really pissed that they weren’t mentioned in a tampon commercial. Apparently making more money than women isn’t enough of a victory, they now have to be properly endorsed by hygiene products. Vagisil, watch your back, the Meninists are coming for ya.

In a rash act of rebellion, the trend #LikeABoy began on Twitter and every keyboard warrior has come out to play with all sorts of sexist shit. Whoever wrote half of this shit on Twitter took direct lines from Alfafa’s letter to Darla - “Always Absorbent Pads, I hate your stinking guts, you make me sick…”

 

 

My personal favorite are the guys who claim it’s “equal rights to have a #LikeABoy campaign,” which literally makes any remotely educated individual laugh. Here’s a thought, why don’t you deduct your pay to match that of the modern woman’s pay, and then we’ll have equal rights? I didn’t think so.

 

 

Honestly, we women are the ones who have to suffer through a fucking period every month. Can't we at least get our own commercial to empower us while we host a fucking crime scene in our pants? Have a heart, let us have our own campaign.

If you need some Monday entertainment, or if you just want to add names to your “do not date list” go on Twitter and read some of the hilarious #LikeABoy tweets. Maybe even listen to the moderately popular Ciara song “Like a Boy” for added effect.
