It's International Men's Day today, a day to fart, burp, be obnoxious and spout all the reasons why man is bestest.
Well no it's not actually. Not at all.
It's very much about helping to make the world a better place by challenging what it means to be "manly", highlighting positive role models and recognising the sacrifices men make for family and community.
Not that these lot would know...

Not all men are bad Sue...
I will celebrate #InternationalMensDay when they stop raping, killing, abusing, starting wars & taking up all the space on public transport— Ｓｕｅ Ｖｅｎｅｅｒ (@sueveneer) November 19, 2014
On the other hand there's swooning, which is equally inappropriate.

Let's all dwell on the negatives.
Happy #InternationalMensDay! Did you know that men are responsible for 89% of crimes against the person, & 98% of sexual offences in the UK?— umlolidunno (@umlolidunno) November 19, 2014
Nope, you've missed the point entirely.

Apparently, today is #InternationalMensDay. What a load of shit!November 19, 2014
It was also World Toilet Day too. Not that anyone noticed.
And a great reminder of what it's all about comes from our very own Charlie Lindlar...
And for balance here are loads of GREAT people who totally got it.

Make sure you don't have testicular or prostate cancer and don't be shit to women. #InternationalMensDay— Nollaig Honey (@bigmonsterlove) November 19, 2014
