Navy mom's tweet makes #HimToo mockery go viral

Navy mom's tweet makes #HimToo mockery go viral

The picture of Hanson in his old Navy uniform, resting one elbow on a bent knee, was accompanied by a caption claiming he was scared to go on "solo dates" because of false sexual assault allegations from "radical feminists".

The original tweet may be deleted, but the screenshots live on.

Kavanaugh, who was accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women and branded a "danger" to LGBT+ people by campaigners, drew the support of activists who used the hashtag to promote the false idea that women often destroy men's lives with made-up accusations. Ford testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee to recount the alleged sexual assault, which Kavanaugh forcefully and consistently denied. I'm a mixture of laughing hard and feeling bad for him #HimToo", he wrote before adding, "My mom is insane.

Hanson says he's a proud Navy veteran, a dad to two cats and an ally of the #MeToo movement. "#HimToo", tweeted Re-Sight Islam podcast host Qasim Rashid.

"This is my sun", Rashid wrote.

Ironically, we reckon he's going to get a lot of dates out of this.

Amy Siskind, the president of the New Agenda, a not-for-profit organization empowering women and girls, shared a side-by-side list of fears women and girls have versus fears men and boys have when it comes to safety.

China Trade War to Hurt Global Economic Growth
He said the talks would be held for "such a programme, a stabilisation, a recovery programme, on which basis we could overcome this financial crisis".

Chief Justice Roberts refers Kavanagh ethics complaints to Denver circuit
Circuit, typically deals with ethics complaints, but he apparently stepped aside from complaints against Kavanaugh . Nearly immediately after the Senate vote, Democrats felt the chill from faraway North Dakota .

President Trump has a Thursday lunch date with Kanye West
In a almost 10-minute long speech in the Oval Office, West says he was pressured not to wear his red "Make America Great Again". Capehart said the president was in a hole with black voters, and touting the economy wasn't going to fix it.

Famous TV and movie characters were also tweeted, with @living_marble making the most of Anthony Perkins' character in Psycho, a son who "knows a boy's best friend is his mother", and "goes a little mad sometimes". "What a burden. H/t Jackson Katz #HimToo". Hanson said he was too heated to speak with her directly about it Monday evening, instead asking his grandmother and younger brother to communicate his wishes that she remove the tweet.

"It doesn't represent me at all", Hanson told the Post. "I'm still trying to wrap my head around all this".

As the number of memes increased, @BlueStarNavyMom deleted her account and Hanson was clearly embarrassed.

Then, Hanson's brother Jon stepped in to clarify that his mother's tweet was inaccurate.

But he did change his Twitter handle to @Thatwasmymom Tuesday. Our favourite part of Hanson's response may be that he cleared his name without bashing his mom. Sometimes the people we love do things that hurt us without realizing it. Let's turn this around. "I respect and #BelieveWomen", he wrote.

"I've been working for years to support the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Society", he said.

The self-described "proud navy vet, Cat Dad and ally" then complimented the efforts of Twitter users who shared amusing memes, saying, "Your meme game is on point", also using the opportunity to promote the Navy on his official Facebook page. "Also, Twitter, your meme game is on point", he tweeted.
