#Like A Girl

For years and years I have been pointing out to people who use “like a girl” in a disparaging way that it is not cool to use that phrase as such…

Random person: “Did you see that terrible pitch? ____ throws like a girl.”

Me: “You know that’s an insult, right?

So, I was very very very happy to see this Always “Like a Girl” ad campaign point out my very point so perfectly. I’m even more thrilled to see the #likeagirl hashtag making its way around. When my friend Amanda requested a gymnastics cookie box for her niece who medaled recently in a gymnastics competition, I knew we had to use the #likeagirl theme to make it even more awesome.

The photo inspiration Amanda sent me to use showed Alexa, her niece proudly showing off her medal #likeagirl.

Since people cookies are sometimes not eaten so quickly, I added some gold stars and some cream sprinkle stars for immediate munching…
