Man Uses Twitter To Inform Trolls That International Men's Day Does, In Fact, Exist

It wouldn’t be International Women’s Day without a plethora of Twitter eggs peeking their heads out of their mom’s basements to scream “BUT WHY ISN’T THERE AN INTERNATIONAL MEN’S DAY, HUH?” at anyone who will listen.

Well, as it turns out, there is an International Men’s Day. It’s November 19th (and also every day), and Twitter user and good male feminist Richard K Herring has taken it upon himself to alert the trolls to this fact. While women across the globe were rocking red and taking the day off work, @Herring1967 took up the daunting task of replying to every single person who asked about International Men’s Day, informing them that it does exist and that they can kindly go shave their backs now. If there are any men reading this wondering how they can get involved with IWD, spending your day roasting misogynists on Twitter (so we don’t have to) is a pretty good option.

Herring took it upon himself to personally respond to all of the haters, letting each one know exactly how many seats they can take. If only we could get something like this going for those “White History Month” people as well.

For some, he kept it short and sweet. Necessary info only:



Other responses were slightly shadier:



And some were downright savage:


So congratulations @Herring1967, you have proven yourself to be the rare male feminist who is actually legit, and not just saying you’re a feminist to try and hook up with the chicks in your Gender Studies class. You win nothing, except for the respect of The Betches and the continuation of your male privilege, which is a lot more than most people get, TBH.
