    "Meninists" Who Felt Left Out By The #LikeAGirl Hashtag Got #LikeABoy To Trend Online

    It can't always be about you, boys.

    "When did doing something 'like a girl' become an insult?" the ad asks.

    But so-called "meninists," the antithesis of feminists, weren't so fond of the #LikeAGirl hashtag, and decided to commandeer it by starting their own: #LikeABoy.

    It didn't take long for #LikeABoy to become one of the top trending topics on Twitter.

    Soon enough, others jumped in on #LikeABoy to criticize the men's rights activists for acting like a bunch of crybabies.

    #LikeABoy is proof that a mans ego is so fragile that when we try to encourage young girls to be confident it intensely bothers them
