Not-so-subtle feminist-themed Super Bowl ads spurred #LikeABoy to trend on Twitter during Sunday’s big game.
One such ad was a repeat of last year’s “Always” campaign that interviews young people on what it means to “throw and run like a girl.”
The ad quickly gained notoriety in 2014, and made another appearance during this year’s Super Bowl.
The anti-feminist, “Meninist” movement took notice of the female empowerment ad and was instrumental in firing back at the social media #LikeAGirl hashtag.

#LikeABoy began to take on a life of its own.

Apparently pi—ing off the feminists is not hard to do.
when women get a commercial dedicated to feminism and empowerment, get annoyed and start making fun of it #LikeABoy — emily (@Emily_Dynamite) February 2, 2015
Tweet inappropriate tweet that degrades a females worth because god forbid there be equality #likeaboy

Isn’t having a counterpart hashtag to #LikeAGirl the very definition of equality? Not according to this lady:
Unfortunately for Yolanda and other fledgling feminists, it seems they’ve inadvertently inspired a growing “Meninist” movement that seems to be up for a long and ugly virtual fight.
