A purported former US Navy sailor became a viral meme after his mother boasted of his military accomplishments on Twitter.

This is MY son

Following the Brett Kavanaugh case and inspiring speech when the president mocked Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony and told people to ‘think of your son’ a new #HimToo hashtag appeared.

The hashtag identifies falsy accused men as victims, using the same power-in-numbers technique that made #MeToo a force to recast the movement as a widespread feminist witch hunt, forcing men to walk on eggshells.

Actually, false sexual assault claims are exceedingly rare, and sexual assault is chronically underreported.

But the new hype didn’t end with it and actually gave us even funnier thing called ‘This is my son’ meme.

In a now-deleted tweet, someone who goes by @MarlaReynoldsc3 posted a photo of a grinning man in uniform and wrote:

“This is MY son. He graduated #1 in boot camp. He was awarded the USO award. He was #1 in A school. He is a gentleman who respects women. He won’t go on solo dates due to the current climate of false sexual accusations by radical feminists with an axe to grind. I VOTE. #HimToo.”

Of course, the reaction of Twitter users was as usual viral. Some people got angry that the #MeToo movement was understood as the result of “radical feminists with an axe to grind” and not centuries of systemic misogyny and rape culture.

Some tried to explain that a woman shouldn’t worry that her son will be accused of sexual assault if he simply, you know, doesn’t assault anyone. And. by the way, the #MeToo movement isn’t exclusively for women, since men have also stepped forward with their stories.

Anyway, Twitter users turned her post into a copypasta. Here are a few:

Fortunately ,both the man who the tweet was about and his brother have come forward to set matters straight.

Jon Hanson tweeted: “My brother is trending on twitter because of my moms ridiculous tweet. I’m a mixture of laughing hard and feeling bad for him. #HimToo”.

Hanson said that their mother, who “had good intentions,” previously tried setting up a date for Pieter on Facebook and never expected her tweet to go viral. Hanson addedtheir mother “claimed her account was hacked.”

“He goes on dates,” Hanson continued. “He never said any of those things. My mom is crazy. No sisters. He was very upset at first but taking it in stride now.”

Pieter Hanson, who is the Navy man and subject matter of the infamous tweet, also took to the social media platform to explain. The man created a Twitter account called, @Thatwasmymom to address the meme, and said that he “believes women,” and “never will support #HimToo.”

“That was my Mom. Sometimes the people we love do things that hurt us without realizing it. Let’s turn this around. I respect and #BelieveWomen . I never have and never will support #HimToo . I’m a proud Navy vet, Cat Dad and Ally. Also, Twitter, your meme game is on point.”

“My mom is beautiful, I May be upset but I love her,” he added.
