On this day we celebrate the social power, that pressured everyone into giving a meaningless day some slimy servant paint-job.
Unless your celibate.
Then its just another day, to wait through entropy for decay.
If this is code of conduct expected of you on the inside of spaceship humanity,
i rather live outside on the hull,
walking airless beneath the stars.

Ehm, for those that are really pro-equality should not condone anything like this unless there's also a "men's day". Feminism is useless unless there's also masculinism (yeah, my spell checker didn't even recognize that word wtf).

No women here?

Then I can let you in to the fact that I celebrated this day by watching LvT:s the Nymphomaniac. It is a good movie.

To paraphrase the usual rejoinder to the complaints about "black history month" :

There are 364 men's days.

I wonder why ;)


@KingRaptor: Yeah, you mean work days. Every freakin day, workin for de man. Im so free right now, somebody hit me with a shovel.
But yeah, better complain and be a aristocrat, then remain sylent and be a grunts workhorse.

I wonder why every time, i was in really deep shit, none of the complainers and none of the "Bitches cry to loud"-babys was around.

Just other idiots, who keep there mouth shut, needing every bit of breath to keep going. Take your days and shove them.
And the other 364 too. I m not bowing to anyone claiming social dominance, be it macho, be it female. They allready got the minutes it took to make this post. More then they desserve.

Not really! That's what they say, but once you start calculating you see that there are not so many.

1 Gregorian year = 365 days, and this includes:
---------------------------------------------
1 Woman's day
1 Christmas Eve, 1 Christmas day, 1 Second day of Christmas
1 NYE + 1 New years day
1 Father's day
1 Mother's day
.
.
.

You see the point. There are not so many days left for men...

Only if you divide humanity into men and women - for which there is no social nor biological evidence.

I have checked between my legs and discovered reasonable evidence for this.

There is gender and sex. You probably mean the latter.
That you can empirically deduce your sex from seeing your genitals is not correct. Less so can you decide that generally for everyone.
If you ask biologists they will tell you that it is not clear at all, if sex is determined by genome or by hormones. That's why there are multiple theories that count 3 to 5 sexes.

Wow - here was a proper statement just a few second ago, then I clicked on "quote" and it turned into this... tricked by "edit" button... now I don't want to respond anymore...

I don't think the term "sex" is a discreet variable, it is a continuous one...

My preferred pronoun is "motherfucker".

Motherfucker is not a pronoun, pronoun is a word or form that substitutes for a noun or noun phrase. Pronous can be: personal, reflexive, reciprocal, possessive, demonstrative, indefinite, relative, interrogative.

"Motherfucker!" is an interjection.

It could be a noun bro!

Well I think dan's point is that all men and women are human! So personally my artist side would love to see a pair of humanity days! One for all the good and one for all the bad we have done !

There are tons of bullshit holidays chief of which in America is black history month! We no longer live in a United States where people do not celebrate the contributions of black Americans. It only serves to further place a divide between then and the rest of society! In before racial accusations! We do not have a Native American history being taught at all! IMO we as immigrants need to know more about the native Americans!
