International Mens Day… Really?

International Men's Day

So today is International Men’s Day…

To be very honest with you, we had no idea and i don’t think we are the only ones. Sorry guys! so let’s join hands today and celebrate all that men have done for the world. Just kidding.

But in all seriousness,  what is it exactly that we are celebrating? If you ask us, it’s pretty confusing. Is it the creation of the “man” species,  their contributions over the years? Men in opposition to women? It is so unclear because the politics of International Men’s Day are so much murkier than International Women’s day for example, where we know exactly what we celebrate and seem to take great pride in it. Whereas IMD seems have been created to just calm the other half of the population down; the half that’s not a women.

Just to better understand this day, IMD originally began in Trinidad and Tobago in 1999 and today more than 60 countries participate in the ceremonies. IMD is supposed to focus on men’s health issues, improving their lives and those around them, boy’s development, family activities and promote gender equality… Get it?!?

So in honor of this day, we would like to dedicate this post to all the Men out there, with all the craziness and stupidity you do, this world just wouldn’t be the same without all of you.
