Posted:no clue, I suppose it's a bit like World Women's Day, or World Juggling Day, or World Badger Day, only you can't advertise it much because it would be considered sexist ubblol

Posted:Because its another ridiculous "something day".

Probably just introduced so that Hallmark and WHSmiths can start producing cards for it in a few years and make some more money out of suckers.

Posted:just out of interest, why is it sexist for there to be a mens day and not womens day? or isnt it just sexist for there to be either?
Same goes for black history month?
surely this just creates a divide, or strengthens it.

or have i misinterpretted birgit totally?

don't think a men's day is nearly as bad... but yes many people would consider it sexist cause men so often wind up with more power....

weird day birgit! your calender's nuts...

she means it would be interpreted as sexist, but good point.

I think I'll celebrate world men's day by hanging out with women if it's all right with everyone else wink

Posted:I did mean it in the sarcastic way, what you say is absolutely true, Dyke Boy! The boys in my lab were all upset because they'd heard so much advertising for the Women's day, but not for today...

no , its to help make excuses for one day, eg:
[lady] WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN UNTIL THIS HOUR!!! ME AND THE KIDS ARE WORRIED SICK ABOUT YOU.. AND YOUR DRUNK... WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY FOR YOURSELF"
{man} sorry baby , i cudnt help it , its world mens day... whaddya gonna do about it? its tradition... its as hard for me as it is for you. i didnt want to be in the pub all night with my mates, i wanted to be home with you and the kids.. fingerpainting or whatever.
[lady] ok honey, i forgot.. do you want me to massage your feet or will i get a beer from the frige for you first.. and the pizza will be here in 20minutes.

ya see... HAPPY MENS DAY TO YOU ALL *leaves work early to go the pub and get sauced who's with me!*

A couple of balls short of a full cascade... or maybe a few cards short of a deck... we'll see how this all fans out.
