Hello Dear Hearts!
YAY! YAY! YAY! YAY!
~Doing happy, skippy, joyful dance of gloriously magnificent happiness~
It has finally happened.
Someone has created a video that EVERY SINGLE WOMAN ON THIS EARTH NEEDS TO WATCH.
(if you’ve somehow managed planetary travel and are reading this from somewhere else, a hearty welcome to you as well.)
The company Always has published a video called “Like A Girl”
It deals with the problem of people associating “like a girl” with weakness weak. Example: “You throw just like a girl!”
That phrase “like a girl” has become an insult.
And hardly anybody even realizes it.
Why would we allow someone to insult us in such a way? Their meaning is actually to insult someone else, the person they are attempting to call “weak”. But they are throwing women in the way of the insult as well.
And there are even some women who say it!
This has got to stop.
Please watch the video and feel free to express your thoughts in the comments section below.
Did you notice that all of the adults responses were basically the same?
Even the women.
We have been so programmed to believe that to do something “like a girl” is weak, that even we have started to believe it.
God doesn’t create weak people.
You are weak only if you choose to be weak. Not because of your sex, your race, your age, your height, your weight, your physical appearance, NOTHING!
You decide your own strength.
I loved the moment when the little boy said “Not my sister. Girls, but not my sister.”
He didn’t even realize what he was doing. And that look on his face when he realized that by calling girls weak he was insulting his sister…
The woman’s speech (1:57) was empowering. She said it exactly as it should have been said.
And the final comment for the video’s closing was perfect.
“Why can’t run like a girl also mean finish the race?”
