    Using #LikeAGirl as an insult is a hard knock against any adolescent girl. And since the rest of puberty's really no picnic either, it's easy to see what a huge impact it can have on a girl's self-confidence.
    We're kicking off an epic battle to make sure that girls everywhere keep their confidence throughout puberty and beyond, and making a start by showing them that doing it #LikeAGirl is an awesome thing.

    It's an ad campaign for sanitary protection, so they probably don't have the purest of motives, but I still think it's quite good.

    i like the campaign, i think it's a good idea but personally growing up even though i heard it and it sounded like an insult it didn't register as girls being weaker or anything. i still grew up thinking everyone was equal and everything

    A bit cringeworthy. I thought the idea that the "like a girl" insults are a pubescent thing was totally different to my experience- at age, say, six, the worst thing was to be "like a girl". Once puberty hit, it was to be "gay". It doesn't feel like a real question, more like they knew the answer they wanted. As a boy who did throw like a girl, it wasn't like a baseless insult, most boys throw much better than girls.
