I am SICK and TIRED of women!

United States
March 8, 2017 2:00am CST
I can't stand it any longer! Women are driving me crazy! I can't do anything without hearing about one woman or another. How GREAT they are, how we should only be so glad we have them! Well, I'm sick of it! Where's the International day of men huh? What about them? [b]There has been atleast four discussions on the topic of International Women's Day in the pat three hours. For the love of wotsits, would you PLEASE look through the "lists" of discussions before making YET ANOTHER on the same topic?[ /b] [Warning : This might be seen as a complaint (which it is, but I think quite a construtive one) and so might just get deleted. You have been warned.

Me and my husband made it easy on ourselves. We don't celebrate anything. No woman's days, no father's days, no birthdays, no anniversaries. Instead, we appreciate each other every single day. For us every single day is special and worthy of celebration. So I am also tired of seeing so many posts about National Days etc. Give it a rest people. I mean how pathetic it is to wait for a specific day each year to feel special!

I feel the same way. The majority of these "holidays" are only made to be be merchandised! Candies, and little novelty gifts! It's really too much.

@thehousewife All spent on silly little things. I'm no longer married, but I always told my husband that there was no need to buy me flowers and chocolates. Give me something I can use.

Well, men are pretty much good for lugging in groceries and explaining sports. I'm trying really hard to think of anything else I add to the equation, and I'm drawing a blank!

Awe come on now! All kidding aside, each gender has something "different' they bring to the table. I haven't gotten away from all this "International Women's Day" thing. Woke up to the newscasters bellowing on about it too!

Men do not deserve an international day like women do. We have struggled to get to where we are today. To be treated equal.

Where would we be without men? Certainly not alive, that's for sure. I'm not saying that women dont' deserve their own day, but men do as well. Yes, women have had a lot of struggles, and we have men to thank for that, but that's not what this discussion is about at all.

This day is the same as any other day to me, a working day with lots of tasks and deadlines. To be honest, I wouldn't say no if I was offered special treatment from someone, or if my boyfriend brings me flowers! What I found annoying was going through my email inbox, which was full of celebrating offers and messages from various online stores and organizations. About the posts, I agree and I remember that the same happened on valentine's day.

Yes, it seems as if the day has been heavily commercialized! People are profiting from it, and so it just becomes another day to earn a buck. So annoying!

I have seen several posts now. I am sick of women being discussed all the time. Much was discussed today in Parliament about women needing more financial assistance but so do some men.

The thing about it is, talk of equality between the sexes has been discussed for decades now. Women should be paid the same, women should be given the same jobs as men, etc etc etc. However "equality" will never truly happen because each gender is very different. I could go on and on about how different the gender's are but I won't. I will say, however, that we will never be able to get dodge the subject of equality.

I think I'd rather hear about the weather. I don't mind so much the holiday, but when people talk about it nearly consecutively! They can clearly see others have spoke about it, why make another discussion on top of that?

@DianneN That would be considered different than what everyone else is doing, and so I wouldn't mind that. I feel as if I am the ogre in this scenario, when really I am not trying to be.

I am sick of men for an entirely different reason! I don't begrudge them their day though. Of course I don't begrudge women either. It's just that i saw soo many discussions on it, back to back. It was frustrating.

Hm, I agree. There should be a men's day if there's going to be a women's day. I'm not sick of hearing about women though, but you are certainly entitled to your opinion.

I don't celebrate the holiday. It was recently introduced to western culture a few years ago right? I know of this holiday when my cousin told me about it since she lives in Vietnam- it's well known to her and she said it's like Mother's Day to them, honor the women. But yeah, men's day should be too like Father's Day!

Probably so, I wouldn't know. I'm merely observing that no more than three people have "discussed" it in the past few hours. Drives me batty! Also, you know how invisibleman posted all of us women's usernames? Probably somewhat against guidelines. I didn't report it, I figured I'd let someone else go to that task. I think he did tag me a few times though, deleting and re-tagging to get my attention. I was notified several times.

@infatuatedbby I just figured that he kept adding my name and then deleting it and adding it back. I think your theory is probably correct. However, you were the first mentioned so I can imagine you got quite a few notifies on it! Yes, someone else must have reported it for sure. I know a lot of people have their own theories on what guidelines can be stretched" and which can't. I honesty think that there needs to be some ammendments to the guidelines.

@celticeagle Nothing of the sort. Over the over night hours, I saw several discussions on the topic. I am just annoyed that so many people posted a discussion about it when they could have just commented on the original poster's discussion. I'm not jealous by any means. Technically, as I am a woman, it's "my day" as well.

lol it just might get deleted but I agree with you on it being to much about women today. I haven't been on here enough to notice it but I did on facebook. The thing was everyone was making it all about strong working woman. Which I guess is the point but I feel a little bent out of shape thinking it should be about all women not just working ones. Then are they going to have a male day like this as well... don't we already have a day dedicated to hard workers!

Yes, i looked it up and men do have their day, in November. I went out to eat today (Mexican to try to get the sinuses -agoing) and a family member said "I wonder if there will be any women there today". I just looked at him and said "Yes. Just because it's women's day doesn't mean women won't work!" How new is this holiday do you know? I certainly hadn't heard of it before.

When I went to school (60s) the history books were full of important dates and events. It seemed women hadn't existed through much of history at all. But, of course they were there and their stories should have been told too. So, it seems 365 days per year for centuries were about men. One day a year for the past century seems very reasonable to me. Now, this is the only post I read about international women's day. Didn't see any others.

I don't begrudge the holiday itself. I bregrudge the five people who felt it was necessary to talk about it back to back to back. It wasn't until WWII that women were really able to get out into the work force. At that time it was a necessity as the men were off to war.

Yes, it wasn't so much everywhere else that bothered me. It was that everyone was posting back to back to back about it here. Clearly they saw someone else had posted, and yet instead of jjust commenting on the first discussion, they go and make their own. I am almost certain that used to be a rule here, a long time ago.
