Happy “Why Isn’t There an International Men’s Day” Day!
This annual holiday, previously known as International Women’s Day, is traditionally celebrated every March 8 by angrily demanding “why isn’t there an International Men’s Day?” after refusing to Google “International Men’s Day” first, at which point you would discover that the holiday does in fact already exist. International Men’s Day is celebrated on November 19th, and every other day of the year.
Let’s check in on the “Why Isn’t There an International Men’s Day” Day celebrations, already ongoing on Twitter.
How comes there isn't an international men's day?

If we have an #InternationalWomensDay and celebrate it, why isn't there an International Men's Day? C'mon, we contribute to society too! ?

Apparently it's international women's day today.
Is there an international men's day too? Cause I smell inequality. :^)

Oh, but the party’s only just getting started!
Well, that’s enough partying for now. If you’ve got more stamina than me, don’t worry! There are literally dozens if not hundreds more celebratory “Why Isn’t There an International Men’s Day” Day Tweets on Twitter, and, as I write this, the day is only half over!
As partied out as I now am, I would feel remiss if I didn’t mention that there are some real party poopers on Twitter today, too. Like the guy who’s been responding to all those “why isn’t there an International Men’s Day” queries on Twitter with the boring answer that there is such a day, every November 19th.
Other party poopers are even meaner.

"Why isn't there an International Men's Day?…..why isn't there a hospital for healthy people? Why isn't there a cemetery for the living?

But I have to admit, this gal knows how to party:
I'm planning on spending International Men's Day on 19 November asking Twitter why there isn't an International Women's Day. Who's with me?

Well, now I know what I’m going to be doing on November 19th.
At least if I’m not too tired out from celebrating World Toilet Day, also on the 19th.
It’s actually a legit holiday, pushing for better sanitation worldwide on behalf of the 2.5 billion people on planet earth who do not have access to adequate toilet facilities, leaving them vulnerable to diarrheal diseases that, CNN notes, cause more deaths “than HIV/AIDS, malaria and measles combined.”
Half of those deaths are men and boys, so World Toilet Day will actually be of far more value to men that whatever nonsense the International Men’s Day bozos come up with.
EDIT: Ok, new plan for November 19th: “International Male” Day.
