    As a woman I don't find it at all patronizing since it sheds light on the difficulties women around the world continue to face which would otherwise be ignored.

    If you dont feel International Men's Day gets enough attention blame the men who are too lazy to get off their bums and advocate.

    Also from wiki:

    The objectives of celebrating an International Men's Day, set out in "The Six Pillars of International Men's Day", include focusing on men's and boys' health, improving gender relations, promoting gender equality, and highlighting male role models.[9][10] It is an occasion to highlight discrimination against men and boys and to celebrate their achievements and contributions, in particular for their contributions to community, family, marriage, and child care.[11][12] The broader and ultimate aim of the event is to promote basic humanitarian values.[13][14]

    Women's Day: They day were women are invited to act like nggers and make up shit about their contributions.

    I came across this article: 'Bombshell' shatters myth around Wi-Fi inventor Hedy Lamarr

    There you have it, a woman invited Wi-Fi. Except, the woman invented nothing. Hedy Lamarr shares a patent with a man for using player piano scrolls for pseudo-random frequency hopping in radio communications. Frequency hopping had existed long before Hedy came along, and there are countless vastly better ways to hop frequencies than using piano scrolls. No one ever used her "invention" because it's a worthless joke.

    I saw a couple of articles, such as this one, praising a Starcraft player who goes by the name Scarlet as the first woman to win a major Starcraft tournament. This past month, Scarlett won a major Starcraft tournament. Except Scarlett is a man, even though he identifies as a woman.
