Today is the second day of Women’s History Month. Which means it’s time for the men of the Men’s Rights subreddit to start whining that there’s no Men’s History Month.
“When is Mens history month?” asked a fellow in the Men’s Rights subreddit calling himself Amazing-Window-346.
I saw that it is womens history month at NASA and to be honest i think it’s good that they are being recognised for their part but what does bother me is when people say (but every month is man month)
So maybe it should [be] a thing [seeing] as men make up 70%+ of the work force and feminist are less than 1% of the work force maybe they could give us a month
I’m not sure I agree with you a hundred percent on your statistics work, there, Amazing. Men make up 53 percent of the workforce in the United States, not 70 percent; roughly 60 percent of women and 40 percent of men see themselves as feminist.
Not that being right about things has ever been a big part of Men’s Rights “activism.” Indeed, when one commenter corrected Amazing-Window’s butt data on the percentage of men in the workforce they got voted down below zero.
Anyway, a bunch of other Men’s Rights Redditors are equally mad they don’t have a month of their own. After all, they
hunted the mammoth built civilization with their bare hands while women sat around having babies and eating bon bons or their historical equivalents.

Sigh. Just get used to it: you will not be celebrated. You are not valued. Society does not want you. The fact that society has been, by and large, created by men is irrelevant. The contributions of men are irrelevant. You are a man: you do not have value – you ACHIEVE value.
Misandry_Today had a somewhat different take:
Every month is Men’s history month. This is because men built the entirety of civilization. As a result men should be celebrated every day of the year.
PigTenis agreed that this was why men deserved a lot more than a month.
Bro – entire history of humanity is Mens History. Nearly all conquests, wars, great works of art, architecture, inventions, or atrocities. Why ask for a month when you got millennia ?
But that’s why we need a month, replied OldEgalitarianMRA.
Men cannot be faulted for making so many great discoveries. This is even more reason to celebrate men and their contribution to our society.
I say, give these poor baby men a month. Call it Men’s Herstory Month, just to piss them off.
