Welcome to #TakeHerHoodie.

First they stole our jeans. Then they stole our dress shirts (and looked far sexier in them, but nevertheless). And now they're stealing our hoodies. For some guys, that was a move too far. Now men across the world have banded together to turn the tables on all of this girlfriend hoodie thievery in a lighthearted and generally hilarious way.
Welcome to the age of #TakeHerHoodie.
In the latest hashtag revolution to swarm across social media, #TakeHerHoodie is a movement to show that hoodie theft is a two-way street. A sometimes-bare-bellied two-way street to be sure, but desperate times and all.
The originator of the movement is a 21-year-old student from Texas named Godswill Muofhe. As he told Indy100, he started the hashtag as a joke after he noticed a lot of women were tweeting about stealing their boyfriends' hoodies.
"Ladies, we've had enough. You can't just take our hoodies this year without giving them back. This year we are fighting back," he posted, along with a photo of himself in a way-too-small woman's hoodie.
The hashtag quickly took off and has so far been retweeted more than 41,000 times. Men all over the world have gotten in on the act, posting photos of themselves in women's hoodies.
But the best part of it is, at least according to Muofhe, that "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."
Sadly there is one group that has been negatively affected by the movement: single dudes.

But at least they can take solace in the fact that their midriffs will be warm this winter.
