Men are angry about women stealing their hoodies, so they've launched a fightback

As the autumn arrives, women everywhere will begin to take solace in the one privilege they have as a girlfriend that helps them get through to spring.

Girlfriends have been getting away with wearing, stealing and adopting their boyfriend’s hoodies for as long as the hoody has existed.

But now, a revolt is putting the number one girlfriend right into question. A 21-year-old student from Texas has started a social movement encouraging men to get revenge by taking their girlfriends’ hoodies - with one single tweet:

Godswill Muofhe's plea has been retweeted more than 38,000 times so far. He told Indy100:

I started the hashtag as a joke because I noticed that a lot of girls were tweeting about stealing their boyfriend's hoodie, since the weather got a bit colder. 

Typically the boyfriend buys a hoodie and the girlfriend takes it and never returns it, and men are left cold and hoodie-less.

This movement allows men and women to equally exchange hoodies on an even playing field.

Also, the hashtag pushes the envelope for toxic masculinity. It's funny to see men wearing their girlfriend's clothes and not being seen as less of a man.

And, sad news for coupled-up women across the world, it seems men are in agreement with Muofhe.

But Muofhe predicts a backlast on the horizon.

I'm extremely worried that women will find a different item of their boyfriend's to steal. I've gotten messages from girls telling me that if we take their hoodies, then they will take our videos games, basketball shorts, and dress shirts.
