Video: Like a Girl

Here’s the thing. The comments on this video are outrageous. Men railing against Feminism because “Women are weaker – deal with it”. So not the point of the video. Girls themselves at an older age are perpetuating the same ideas men are about what it means to throw like a girl, run like a girl etc.

The saddest part of this that had me close to tears is – when does the magic disappear? When do we as girls lose our sense of self and why does it happen? How can I keep that from happening with my daughter? I know it’ll happen one day, but I don’t want it to. I want her to keep saying “Run like a girl means to run fast.”
