Today (March 8th) is International Women’s Day, also known as International “Men Being Dicks About International Women’s Day” Day — and few men are celebrating that second holiday more enthusiastically than Reddit’s contingent of Men Going Their Own Way.
Reddit’s MGTOWs celebrated, or pretended that they had celebrated, the holiday in an assortment of ways, from jerking off to porn, to playing videogames, to jerking off to porn.
A few of these alleged “celebrations” bore more than a slight resemblance to symptoms of depression.
But many others — perhaps influenced by the imaginary holiday Festivus, famously invented by George Costanza’s father on Seinfeld — set aside the day for the ritual Airing of Grievances.
So in other words, today was a day like every other on the MGTOW subreddit, only a little more so than usual.
Some of their complaints:
Women are “fuckin leeches.”
Correction: UNGRATEFUL fuckin leeches.
They make bad music.
Actually, they’re bad at all artistic endeavors:
They were really bitchy during the last Internationa Men’s Day.
They sometimes entice “simps” into wishing them a happy International Women’s Day in order to get laid.
They’re not even oppressed!
I can’t quite figure out what exactly women are doing to piss this dude off.
And then there’s this guy, who tried to paste a link to this in the comments here, evidently not realizing or not caring that he’s permabanned because, well, he regularly tries to post shit like this here, which is unhinged even by MGTOW standards.
Setting aside the alleged ongoing genocide of men for now, have a very happy International Women’s Day!
