Sophie Says: Girl Push ups?

What is that supposed to mean? Girl push ups are usually the push ups when you are on you’re knees.

I’ve heard that phrase a lot in school, is that good or bad? Is the phrase girl push up supposed to mean we’re weak? Is like a girl supposed to be a insult?

Strong, fierce, kind, fast, brave, smart. That is what it means to be like a girl.

Mom’s commentary: It’s funny this came up as the member’s of Team Betty are in the midst of a 100 push up challenge and there has been some conversation about the term “girly” push ups vs what they should be called – modified. Whatever you want to call them, I can tell you on Day 2 of my challenge, 100 modified push ups are kicking my butt.
