The Local _ International affairs _ Happy International Womens Day!!!!

Posted by: Selena 8.Mar.2006, 04:04 PM

Cheers to all the lovely ladies! biggrin.gif

When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their Day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development.

International Women's Day is another example of how women exploit men for their own gain and are in control of all situations. Men need to stop putting women on pedestals, get their own international day, maybe get a daisy chain going. Any women who disagree are joyless, stupid, have no sense of humour and are rubbish in bed. I know because I'm doing research into this.

The thing is Women are making themselves sound like a minority with special needs, I'd be embarressed if there were an International Mens day. However women are great etc etc.

Are you ready for this? I completely agree.

I received an happy "hallmark holiday" greeting card this morning from one of my co-workers. Not to sound ungrateful, because she truly is a darling, but I was just appalled.

How can we, as women, demand equality and then create special little days for us to celebrate having boobies? I don't mean to offend...but if you want to be treated equally, act that way.

I'm irritated because I really don't like stuff like this. And...I'm irritated because it's completely inane.

Incidentally, I think International Women's Day is a pile of pants. International Oppressed Women's Day maybe, but I'm doing fine thanks and I don't need my own special day to make me feel... actually what? What is it meant to make me feel?

What is an 'International Woman'?

Dual citizenship? 10 distinct passport stamps? or what?

Posted by: Nuname 8.Mar.2006, 06:34 PM

One who can do the washing in 6 or more different languages.

I can't wish my wife happy womens day, she is 9000 miles away. Just an old joke, how do you tell a woman with two black eyes to shut up. You don't have to you have already told her twice. Just kidding

Hush now, OJ! :wink:

This is a great day. Too bad the media uses this day to focus on women's oppression. I would love to hear inspirational stories about great women instead.

Tee hee no Marnie, mine is not till August which is still thankfully far being that I'm pushing 30 with each passing year...

It's just the way it's celebrated here, quite of an annual big deal like the 1st of March, all women get flowers from men and younger women, the latter hasn't been the case yet, I've started the day buying my mother a superb bouquet and then received them from each and every of the students that had a class with me today.

/me makes mental note to only accept male students from now on.

I saw no inyternational women yesterday... Women in Norway just got drunk, so there seemed like it was a normal day...

By the way, am I not special today? Do I have to wait a whole year to get special again?

Posted by: Kodos 9.Mar.2006, 05:36 PM

According to Mr Robertson...we're special every day.

It seems that not everyone got into the spirit of the International Woman's Day!

Danish symbol violated by sex toy
From: Agence France-Presse From correspondents in Copenhagen
March 10, 2006
DENMARK'S national symbol, the Little Mermaid sculpture perched on a rock overlooking the Copenhagen port, was adorned with a dildo and splattered with green paint by vandals, police said.

"We are taking this very seriously because one cannot accept vandalism, not on the Little Mermaid or any other public statue," deputy police commissioner Peter Steffensen said.
Investigators had "no leads on the perpetrators of the act," he said.

The attackers scrawled "8 marts" across the rock on which the Little Mermaid sits, marking the date in Danish of International Women's Day which was celebrated around the world yesterday.

"But we are not sure that it was women who committed this act," Mr Steffensen said.

The statue has been cleaned up and the sex toy removed.

That's not upsetting. It's just funny.

What would happen if we put a condom on the little, pissing boy in Brussels? I think the little boy would get a pat on the back for getting some.

Are people really this sensitive? Have we all lost our sense of humor? This is no more harmful than dumping bubble bath in a water fountain.

Why not? They spend a lot of time painstakingly dress the poor, little pisser!

There should be an International Women Day AND an International Oppressed MEN Day, both events should be celebrated at the same day of the year.

Is this fair enough?

Posted by: VikingHumpingWitch 10.Mar.2006, 04:07 PM

How about International Oppressed People's day? That way women like me, who don't feel at all oppressed, don't feel patronised, and men who are ooh I dunno gay and living in Iran or who want to stay home with the kids and can't cos they don't get paternity leave etc.etc. can all have a day to protest their grievances?
