One of the unspoken challenges in relationships that men typically face is giving up one of their comfortable pieces of clothing to a significant other. Let’s not forget, things like boyfriend jeans are real categories in women’s fashion. A humorous movement on Twitter has arisen, with men striking back over the theft of their hoodies by taking their lady friends’ head wraps and posting photos of themselves in their new haul.
Twitter user @Mute_McNeil apparently kicked off the movement with a tweet on Saturday featuring a photo of himself adorned in a head wrap.
“Fellas I’m doing this for every hoodie ive ever lost to a female, we gotta start taking they s–t in 2017,” he wrote. This was retweeted 8,000 times, receiving over 10,000 likes and growing. Other men followed suit, posting photos of themselves in head wraps in solidarity. It appears that @Mute_McNeil’s head-wrapping skills even impressed some women.
@Mute_McNeil why is your head wrap game one million times better than mine tho?

“why is your head wrap game one million times better than mine tho?” wrote user @brownivy. User @lenubienne added, “The fellas in head wraps in that thread are fahn as hail. I need this to become a thing.”
Of course, some men are refusing to join the fight, but for the most part, the guys who have participated are clearly having fun, not truly looking to start a brand-new movement. Perhaps this war of wills can be summed up best in one tweet.
@Mute_McNeil my man not allowed to look cuter than me in my scarf. That's disrespectful.
