Friend's Facebook Thread Triggered By Online Rage At Internional Day For Women
AS: National Day for Women began on February 8, 1909 and became International Day for Women in 1910. It did not start when Donald Trump was elected. He was not born and none of you who are complaining about the International Day of women were born either. I would venture a guess that the majority of the objectors did not even know that this day existed until the recent presidential election. Did you know that there is also an International Day for Men? It began on February 7, 1992. These respective days celebrate the accomplishments and contributions of woman and men to society and to also commemorate the fight for equal rights for both women and men. Why anyone would be outraged over the PERSONAL choice to participate in the observance of these days is beyond my comprehension but I have seen a lot of posts and read some articles where women/men are just brutal in their condemnation of those who participated in yesterday's events at all. A lot of good things happened yesterday. A LOT of good social service took place. I am beginning to think it is more popular to be negative than to be positive. Sad.
