  • My ex husband would tease me by saying I "throw like a girl" like it was a bad thing. One of the many reasons he's my ex. - 3/9/2016 9:46:19 PM

  • Awesome message! "Why can't 'run like a girl' mean win the race?" Wish we had this message when I was a girl! - 11/11/2015 9:46:38 AM
  • When I see this video it brings tears to my eyes! I remember being young and running like a girl, hitting the ball like a girl, and the like, and I was excellent at sports. I also remember when I hit those critical years when I learned that doing things "like a girl" became an insult, and then I wanted to be accepted like I was doing it like a boy. So sad. I hope young girls see this and change their perceptions and realize being a girl is wonderful. Boys are not ashamed of themselves, so neither should girls! - 10/22/2015 2:46:10 AM

    I love it! Empowerment and reinforcing strength in spite of the pull-downs. - 9/13/2015 7:41:54 PM
  • It must be miserable to go through life getting tied up in knots about colloquialisms, but then that's very typical of girls. - 3/6/2015 9:30:23 AM
  • I loved this video and I hope all of America sees this. - 7/20/2014 8:00:51 AM
  • It may be a commercial, but I applaud the company for priding this. And yes, I have a more positive attitude toward their products, too! It's so refreshing to see a positive message. - 7/19/2014 1:12:07 PM
  • I saw a tee shirt once that said " I run like a girl - do try to keep up!" - 7/16/2014 9:06:59 PM
  • Loved it. - 7/13/2014 10:36:44 PM
  • Oh my. I love this! Every girl should do everything like a girl! ultimately because we are girls!!! - 7/10/2014 11:20:44 AM

    My daughter played softball for 13 years and she is a third degree black-belt in Aikido. Through all of her training in both sports, I would encourage her to run, throw, slide, hit, punch and kick like a girl. To us that phrase always meant to excel. - 7/1/2014 3:52:28 PM
  • Social experiment?

    Oh, please.

    Let's call it what it really is. It is an advertisement. This is a form of advertising these days. Want to see another one like this? Google Chipotle Scarecrow or Thai giving commercial.

    I don't dispute the message, but call it what it is. It. Is. An. Attempt. To. Sell. You. A. Product. - 7/1/2014 3:08:14 PM

    I am so thankful and grateful that the awfully sexist comment "like a girl" (when meant as an insult) has been exposed and brought to light. As a girl, thank you so so so much 'Always'!!!! - 7/1/2014 2:12:09 PM
