The phrase 'play like a girl' was brilliantly redefined on the internet last night

Well played everyone.

LATE LAST NIGHT, the US Women’s soccer team won the World Cup in Canada – and the internet was buzzing with praise for the team.

Heading up much of the chat was the term “play like a girl”, how it is used as an insult and why the ladies’ performance last night should make it a thing of the past.

People said it should retire

And suggested others should welcome the term

It’s actually a compliment now

Everyone watching would now want to play like a girl

Advice was being passed down to both sons and daughters

The hashtag #LikeAGirl began and everyone gathered around it

With suggestions to change it to ‘like a boss’ welcomed

WHO?

So last night’s match might very well have an impact on some young people in the future

Well played, everyone.
