If they used the day to break some of the horrible toxic male stuff and look at tackling male suicide rates, etc. then it’d be great.

But I don’t think it is that.

But when’s International straight, white men’s day?

it’s mainly good for shutting up men who whine about International Women’s Day

I think it’s more about that now - definitely have seen a shift in the past few years

going by workplace stuff it’s kind of been repurposed as an awareness day for men’s health and stuff which i guess is good

edit: as @sadpunk said

unless we’re talking about how we intentionally, as a group, fuck all of that up all the time

Good to be more aware of men’s mental health for sure! Including the damaging effects of the patriarchy on MMH and the part that masculinity, toxic and otherwise, plays in men’s lives.
