We finally have a day when
The attention’s directed at men
But what I now fear
Is surviving a year
Until it all happens again

    The men who stroppily ask when’s International Men’s Day on International Women’s Day probably won’t make a peep today, but come next March will be spouting the same ráméis as last time!

            Hah! :)

            Or we could look at it as opportunity to celebrate the overwhelming majority of men who do the dirty work in sanitation :)

            Not lol really. There’s N awful lot of people on the planet that do have access to toilets meaning sanitation And that in turn leads to the spread of infectious disease etc. Serious stuff and more can be found out at your favorite overseas aid ngo where they take this sort of thing very seriously.

      Are you complaining that men bring up ‘men’s day’ on international women’s day by bringing up ‘women day’ on international men’s day?
      Scarlet for ya.

        I was walking by a Bay City Rollers concert the other day and I heard a couple of cool kids say the same thing.

            nope you just said drugs, you forgot your buzzword
            there’s a sliding scale for the severity all things,
            righteousness (humble to ram it down your throat), illegality ( jay walking to murder), comprehension ( poor to excellent), you get the jist

            All I’m getting from that is from my calling out one of your holier than thou buddies for buying and using illegal drugs I’ve triggered the living hell out of all the BS comment section regulars.

            You lot REALLY don’t like not being right

            Drugs might be the way forward to remove that stick outa your posterior there, fella.
            Just a suggestion, t’would be awful to think I bullied you.

      And I jumped on a bus to the city
      Stopping off to recharge my smartphone
      And a guy shaving his nose told me how to get rich
      I was glad we weren’t going that far

      So the wimmin are okay putting on their lippy while riding the 45a (despite the risk of ending up looking like Bozo the Clown) but us men aren’t entitled to any grooming activity at all, not even a bit of nose hair trimming?

      And by the way, don’t think we haven’t noticed this blatant attempt at making the other 364 days non-men’s days.Every day is men’s day.

        lippy ? I have seen ladies put up scaffolding and create a new face, fascinating
        I have to keep reminding myself it’s rude to stare in this country..less eye contact that’s my morning mantra

      “shaving his nose”
      ?

      shaving the outside of his nose?
      shaving the inside of his nose?
      or was he trimming the nose hair?

        shaving the outside of his nose, with a battery powered shaver.
        worthy of a limerick?

        how strange it is to propose
        that a man seen shaving his nose
        could cause such a fuss
        on this morning’s bus
        thank god he wasn’t doing his toes.
