Great! 🙂 Even now doing something “like a girl” or being feminine is considered a bad thing which Irritates me.

atreyu547:  I agree to an extent. Shouldn’t the message be run like yourself? or for yourself? Some females run like LoLo Jones or Anna Willard Pierce and some females run like what was depicted in the video. And there is nothing at all wrong with either way of running or the million other variations in between.

Putting confidence in young women is about loving and accepting who they are as an individual.

I have never personally seen anyone get offended in real life because of the phrase “…like a girl.” If they did, I’d call them a wiener. That’s just me.

I love this ad.  I never understood “like a girl” phrases.  What does it mean that I run like a girl?  I am a freaking girl.  Oh, you mean I run slow?  Why don’t you just say that?

AllieLaLa:  it’s the implication though. If doing something ‘like a girl’ is an insult it suggests that being a girl is in some way a bad thing (or it wouldn’t be an insult) just as doing something ‘like a man’ is a good thing and reinforces the stereotypes about man=good/superior/strong, girl/woman=bad/inferior/weak

It is an insult, and it is prevalent b/c people consider girls weak and people have no problem saying it.  And as a result, girls feel weak. It sucks.

I saw this ad the other day, absolutely loved it, I even teared up a little. I have to agree, when did being a “girl”, or being feminine become a bad thing?
