Since when did “run like a girl” become an insult? According to a new ad from Always, somewhere around puberty.

‘Always’ asks several people to demonstrate things “like a girl.”

Out came the stereotypical limp arms and silly facial expressions.

Then pre-pubescent girls were asked the same questions.

Their responses are empowering and will melt your heart.

“We’re kicking off an epic battle to make sure that girls everywhere keep their confidence throughout puberty and beyond, and making a start by showing them that doing it #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing,” ‘Always’ wrote on the YouTube page.

    It sure is funny. how everyone now days is fussing about something. If they aren’t yelling Racist they are yelling about a word used or a name used or a religion. What a sad, sad world people must live in where ever thing that’s been used all through the ages hurts their feelings. I’m old, getting to be white headed, with a bad back and stay bent over most of the time, I’ve gotten slower when I walk, and I’ve started putting on weight. I have neuropathy in both feet so my feet hurt a lot of the time and I don’t have most of my own teeth and I almost forgot, and I’m a white male that’s part Indian and, and I wear glasses, so I have a bunch of things to start watching and listening for everywhere from everybody no matter what they really mean by saying it to get my feelings hurt and make me mad about. Naming what you get at all these Restaurants “French Fries” should be banned, “White bread”, “White House”, “White Cloud” TP should ALL be renamed because that’s Racist. “Old Navy” “Old Dog” “Old Age” are ALL using the “Old” word and that hurts us elderly people’s feelings so we should be mad, REALLY MAD about it. No, it’s ALL Very Rediculous getting mad about such stupid things. If your daughter has been harmed by someone saying that she throws like a girl then maybe, just maybe You as a parent need to help her learn to throw like a guy. Instead of letting so many things hurt your feelings just start using your energy that you use for getting upset about it into helping others get something to eat, or helping the elderly fix up their homes or cars or help someone that needs your help do whatever they need done and teach your children to do the same and teach them that life wasn’t given to them to cater to their wants, needs or feelings. Teach them that out in REAL LIFE things don’t always go their way, and things in REAL LIFE Can and Will hurt their feelings but that they should pick up their bootstraps and go right on. What a WASTE of time letting stuff like that hurt your feelings.
