But when is international men’s day?
We don’t need to be told when to be happy… and my neighbour, she’s never been outside of Dublin, never mind the country, so I didn’t wish her anything.
It’s not a day to be happy, it’s a day for people to ask but when is international men’s day!
The other 364, sweetcheeks :-)
That’s my bowl !
And… get your own milk !
Tbf, I think the deal is we get until lunchtime and then it’s back to you lot
There’s actually 366 days this year. But point taken.
Saturday, November 19th.
Glad someone said. Same joke. Every year.
It’s Richard Herring’s favourite cause.
He does sterling work on this
Some day that message will get out and both “when is international mens day?” (asked both Ironically and not) and the response “the other 364” will finally die out and the world will be better.
Also it’s a leap year this year so it’s the other 365.
Everyday is International Men’s Day.
Seriously though, sort of.
How true, Don. We can’t even give the distaff side a whole day without smacking 51%* of the world’s population on the arse at 1 pm and saying ‘game over, gals’.
We love being groped in fairness so that’ a win win
How overwhelming. Think I’ll go back to the kitchen where it’s safe.
Make us a cup o’ tea while your there, thanks
@meadowlark: not in my kitchen. Global knives and a short attention span are a lethal combination. I have the hands of a self-harmer.
I’ll be coming for you aggressively armed with a potato peeler and some ovaltine.
I usually have to pay good money for such a scenario.
Feel free to join in, I’ll grab the rolling pin.
Great to see that WakingTheFeminists are going around the city today to give a bed or sofa to all homeless women.
Even if we look at the most inspiring and astonishing people ever to come along – Gandhi, Mandela, Sir Alex Ferguson – they didn’t do everything. They had a couple of areas in which they were incredibly visionary, powerful and determined – decolonisation of India, the end of apartheid, winning the treble – but they weren’t also tackling FGM, climate change, sex-trafficking and the World Cup. They specialised.)
The future is a communal effort, like a patchwork quilt. Everyone interested in forming our society takes a square each – a square they have chosen according to their interests, knowledge and ability – and sews it, then we join them together to make a fabulous quilt. That’s how things get done.
Great to see WhenIsItMensDay going around offering themselves as alternatives to all the men who use prostitutes.
26%? Pretty low. But that’s great! It shows that most women have more sense than to read that Wall St establishment rag.
Wall St. is in New York. That’s in America.
It says nothing about their readership (or at least not directly).
The FTSE 100 are the biggest British listed companies by market capitalisation.
26% is a hell of a lot better than it was even in 2010 (12.5%), though obviously still inequal (all of them being from a rather rarefied slice of society anyhow).
The other problem is that women are concentrated within the ranks of non-executive directors.
So a lot done, much more to do. Hence the ‘happyish’.
I thought they meant Fortean Times before the pic loaded and got a bit excited.
