Men's International Day - Nov 19 - sour grapes - 11-09-2015 07:44 PM

A number of events world wide are being planned. In India Men's group are demonstrating by returning their marriage certificates in Parliament. In London, UK, there are also demonstrating against male circumcision.

Should've probably included more information, so I looked around for you.

The very next day, November 20, is Universal Children's Day. They emphasize that because of this, it's a 48-hour celebration of the two and the relationship they share (father and son, uncle and nephew, etc.). I think that's very cool. I see too much nowadays about mothers and their relationships with children - who cares about dads, because they don't matter. These events say otherwise.

No doubt this will rustle some SJW jimmies in the coming years, ultimately getting it banned. But while it's here, good for it.

Thanks for that. Men's International day needs to get popularized and celebrated. Still many do not know it exists. Perhaps it can be mentioned as a headline on top of the forum page.

Its already meeting massive SJW resistance.

Quote:But what about International Men’s Day? Is this some form of political tit-for-tat: since they have their day, we men need ours? Really? After all, International Women’s Day acknowledges women’s exclusion and asks for a greater commitment to gender equality. From that perspective, we actually have International Men’s Day the other 364 days of the year. Here in the US, February is Black History Month. Do we need a separate White History Month – or don’t the other 11 months suffice?

Perhaps we can replace International Men’s Day with something slightly different – and tailored especially for men and boys. A friend proposed calling it International Son Day. On one Sunday, every year, fathers can invite their sons into their own homes, so that they can learn how to clean, cook, vacuum, do laundry and childcare – skills that these boys will inevitably need. Just as we demystify the workplace for girls, let’s demystify the home for boys, so that they can grow up into the men that they say they want to be: autonomous and capable of living on their own, and also involved family men, in egalitarian marriages and relationships, active and energetically engaged fathers, who use their domestic skills.

I'm going to go ahead and present this to myself:

This is madness.

I always think it's funny when silly fuckers like the guy writing for the Huffington Post play dumb and coy about why International Men's Day ought to be a thing, or what such a holiday should entail.

It could just be one day a year where you look at your surroundings and marvel at how much effort it took to build houses, roads, working plumbing, and think up all the inventions that make modern life possible. Men invented more or less all things mechanical and abstract.

This is trolling, right? I wouldn't be surprised if an RVFer wrote that to troll mainstream media
.

^^ that is ludicrous and does seem like trolling.

But, this part : On one Sunday, every year, fathers can invite their sons into their own homes, so that they can learn how to clean, cook, vacuum, do laundry and childcare – skills that these boys will inevitably need. has some truth to it, because women are now so goddamn useless at the things that have historically been their domain that men are having to learn how to do them. Not because they want to take place in "egalitarian partnerships," but because women are too busy riding the carousel to settle down and more men are taking care of themselves for longer periods of bachelorhood (and simultaneously realizing housework is pretty fucking easy for all the whining women do about it).

Why the hell would I need a day to celebrate being a man when I should use the entire year to celebrate being man? Fuck this bullshit.

The author is Michael Kimmel, and he's built an entire career based on denigrating on his own gender. His whole schtick seems to be constantly casting men in the worst light possible: as bunch of immature, violent, horny gorillas who refuse to modernize and get with the times.

Any complaints that men have about feminism, or modern women, he casts aside as bitterness about a loss of male privilege (which stems from our entitlement), and that men are just stubbornly clinging to outdated concepts of masculinity.

What's the point? Every day is man's day.

It's a man's world, baby.

I'm against this just like most sane black people are against Black History month. You don't need a fucking "special day", I already hardly celebrate my birthday.

Hate to say this but he's right on this point.

The less marriageable women we have in the world today, the more men are going to end up being bachelors forever, doing all of this shit for ourselves (except childcare of course).

^I've never been married and no one had to teach me that shit. I have a bottle of bleach, a mop and a vacuum. I throw my clothes in the machine and push a button. I cook steaks, or Google a recipe. It's not rocket science and takes minutes out of my day.

To take it a step further, I hire a maid service and laundry service. I feel no need to domesticate myself when I can afford to pay other people.

I had an ex tell me once that she was gonna "cook up a nice dinner" for me. When I got home I found a mixing bowl with tuna salad. Apparently she had opened up a couple of cans of tuna, chopped some onions and peppers, threw it all together and called it "dinner". I was fucking furious and told her that shit was dog food.

From that moment on, I've been cooking my own meals.
