Will there be a International Men's Day to correlate with the Women's day? To celebrate all the great things men have done for us all and the lives lost to protect us Women? Just curious.

Btw, I am a woman irl and would like a day to celebrate Men as well.

There is one (in November), but it is largely ignored because most of the people/organisations/media that like to virtue signal about such things don't really give a shit about men.

Fun story: when my brother was at York university a couple of years ago the uni actually banned International Men's Day, despite obsessing over women's day every year, and replaced it with a conference on women's issues, all because the university Women’s Network couldn't stand the idea of doing anything positive for men.

Anyways, sorry if that was a bit of a rant, it's nice that you have such a positive outlook towards International Men's Day :)
Anyone that wants catering to make ironman easier should be renamed wannabe-man and have their ironman icon replaced with a dunce hat.

@Iron Robsham - They are purposefully destroying the relationship between the sexes and it is an absolute shame. It is a shame people fall for it, and it would be a shame if in November Jagex didn't/doesn't celebrate Men's day. Brainwashing.

@Skysunder - Agreed. Toast to all men who have helped create this world, continue to create it and have died mercifully to enrich and protect the lives of women and children.

As a woman, I am wondering what it is I am meant to celebrate that is of worthy cause? Because I am one of the few who knows how to cook and bake and take care of my kids? Is that what I am meant to celebrate? *insert roll eye emote here* Not like we just woke up today and all of a sudden can vote and have jobs.

Hid a sexist/out of line comment.

Also, there is indeed an International Men's Day in November. The 19th this year, to be exact.

I did not find his comment sexiest at all. He was telling the truth. Free speech should be allowed as he did not bash nor insult women at all. I guess if he bashed men he would be free to do so?

I think it's pretty dumb to celebrate the genitals you or others were born with. Both Men's Day and Women's Day are horribly patronizing.

It takes the great accomplishments of wonderful people in the past and the struggles they went to and reduces it down to something only worth celebrating because of whatever bits you have between your legs.

Why can't people who did great things be celebrated for the great things they did rather than be celebrated for their gender?
I'll keep score from now on.
