I don’t really understand why it exists, do you know?
to celebrate the international men?
yep, those guys
- deserves its own day
@profk is going to be furious you’ve left him off this list
it’s also World Toilet Day today.
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
Sure we did this last year, but anyway, here’s the wiki about the day and the guy who started it etc.
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
in which case I approve of the day and wish it every success
this sounds like a bad day
Oh man, that makes it look like I wrote it… I DID NOT.
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.
