(my opinion had been removed by someone who was butthurt, so I decided to share it again ;) )
well... I don’t know how to put this in a way that doesn’t make men feel bad/angry but I’ll try and do my best.
I’ve seen men here and elsewhere asking why we don’t have such a big commotion for a men’s day or why do some women get somewhat offended by getting flowers today. Personally, I don’t get OFFENDED really, I just think it’s bullshit :/ I don’t see today as a “congrats you’re a woman” day, but more of a reminder of the daily struggles we go through. so getting flowers is okay but like?
And about a men’s day... well... if you, guy, get upset over not having a day understand this: you don’t need to look out every second on the streets for potential rapists or human traffickers. you don’t get discouraged by others to apply for higher positions just because of your gender and because you “have to continue humankind”(carry a child). so sit down and let us have a day to talk about the struggles of womanhood in a patriarchal world in peace. don’t come asking “but what about men?” today because THAT is offensive.
also, if you think this is a “feminazi” way of thinking, you’re truly stuck on the wrong century. feminism is about reaching gender equality, not saying women are better and men are trash.
thank you for coming to my ted talk
