#HimToo Is the Best Internet Meme in a Long Time

"He graduated #1 in boot camp", she continued. I'm a proud Navy vet, cat dad and ally. "I love my mom to death, but boy". She just failed to consult her son on the matter first.

Hanson is a 32-year-old Navy veteran who is now studying entrepreneurship at the University of Central Florida. In a tweet that has since been deleted (as has the account), she wrote: "This is MY son".

The #HimToo hashtag was, until recently, full of timely reminders that men like Terry Crews and James Van der Beek have also suffered from sexual assault, until being hijacked during the confirmation process of alleged abuser Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Hanson said he wished his mom would have never posted.

'He won't go on solo dates due to the current climate of false sexual accusations by radical feminists with an axe to grind.

Eventually, Pieter Hanson created a Twitter account under "That was my mom" and posted a photo of himself in a similar pose. According to two men who claim to be the woman's sons, the son in the photo is not, in fact, afraid of feminists or dates or false sexual accusations at all.

It all began with a post from a concerned United States mother on Twitter.

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". Before he was confirmed, Christine Blasey Ford publicly came forward to accuse the judge of sexual assault decades ago. He was #1 in [the US Navy's technical school]. "He is a gentleman who respects women", Oklahoma mum Marla Reynolds wrote in a since-deleted tweet. That's why we vote #HimToo.

Although Pieter was initially angry with his mother for posting something about him that is untrue, he said he holds no hard feelings. The hashtag started in 2015 as way of including someone in a shared activity, for example, one could post 'I'm Paddleboarding!' and include #HimToo to include the person they are sharing the experience with, but it began to morph into a more associative meaning.

Jon Hanson, brother to the Navy man in question Pieter, managed to find the humour in the situation, confirming that his mum "made it up".

Hanson tweeted that he may be upset about the original post, but that he loves his mother. He will no longer go on dates, because, well. "I'm still trying to wrap my head around all this".
