Melissa McCarthy posted an incredible photo of the women of the all-female Ghostbusters film on Twitter, and it raised quite a ruckus with the men-folk.

The image shows actors, stunt doubles, producers, writers and other crew members with a huge banner reading "Girl Power" and it marks an important moment in film history: Women being fully represented in a male-dominated industry. But sadly, one Twitter user and feminist writer had to break that down for a bunch of dudes who have their knickers in a bunch over the remake.

Anne Thériault, a Toronto-based writer who rose to Twitter fame after live-tweeting a terrible first date she witnessed in a coffee shop, retweeted the pic and then had to fend off the attacks of men who just don't get why this is such a huge deal.
