#HimToo poster boy flips the narrative after mom's viral tweet

11 October 2018

'He graduated #1 in boot camp. "I love my mom to death, but boy.I'm still trying to wrap my head around all this".

"It doesn't represent me at all", the 32-year-old Navy veteran and University of Central Florida student told the Post. It all happened when his mother posted on Twitter claiming her "gentleman" son is afraid to go on dates because of "radical feminists".

Hanson was referring to the #HimToo hashtag that became popular following the sexual misconduct accusations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Hanson said he was too heated to speak with her directly about it Monday evening, instead asking his grandmother and younger brother to communicate his wishes that she remove the tweet. He won't go on solo dates due to the current climate of false sexual assault accusations by radical feminists with an axe to grind.

Jon said his mother - who has since deleted her account - has posted similarly untrue, yet benign, things in the past, like saying her sons were single when they were not, but this is the first time those posts have included a political message.

"This is MY son", Hanson's mother's now-deleted tweet read.

Jon called the tweet the "antithesis" of his brother, and Pieter later made his own Twitter account making that clear.

Since his family's sudden 15 minutes of fame, Pieter Hanson has been tweeting out mostly jokes and pictures of cats - along with an appeal to, fittingly, turn #negativesintopositives.

He MAY have murdered his own mother but still, I vote for him.

The way the Twitter theatrics are going, Hanson might even get a few dates out of this whole mess. 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.
