thread It being international women's day
I'm going to tell you about Awamu, a small charity run by friends of mine who help women in a slum in Kampala, Uganda to support themselves and the children they look after, often not their own but those who have lost their own parents. They sell the products that the women generate, they teach the kids how to grow their own vegetables, they help provide equipment like sewing machines, they help put the kids into school, for fun they taught the kids how to produce their own radio shows.. they do good things.

Have a read.
permalink Not that interested in Women's day.
I mean, you have a majority, you have the vote, you can do literally whatever you want if you are a homogeneous group, and if you are not then what is the day for?

This is world proofreading day.

That shit matters.
permalink NB:
I do not believe much of that.

I mean, women are a technical majority, I guess, and it IS World Proofreading Day, but that's about it.
permalink What happens on World Proofreading Day?
Do we get pancakes or doughnuts or anything?
permalink we all send you email's with minor problems in
permalink you get duoghnuts and pnackake's
permalink and the winner gets a job
as a sub-editor at the Grauniad
permalink Your
all gay
permalink Was that DogHorse?

I miss the golden years.

permalink Heh,
I always liked that.
permalink hahaha.. a lad that shashes around with a not on the books hairdo
your priveledge is why womens day is important
fuckit a prick that has EVERY on a plate
and to blind to see
whines about his second house. ;)
i've just been to a a gallery opening of fucks like you with no understanding but the wallet
so they get greased and fauned and fuck you money

all you talk about is money... nothing about growth and development
you have a gun
permalink You really can be a bit of a tit at times, Riggers.
I really am not all about money, but I am privileged - of course I fucking am, I am an upper class, white, ostensibly heterosexual male.

None of that post is serious, as I am sure literally everyone else knew.
permalink just grow up
and start writing serious (and true) posts the hay days of your b3ta youth have gone
permalink No.
That is just terrible advice.
permalink Already a bell end in the office has said
‘But why don’t we have an International Men’s Day?’ and was very surprised to find out there has been one for over 20 years. Mind you, as if proof of his stupidity was needed, he also said he was ‘360 degrees opposed to any kind of International day for any group’
permalink it's also World Kidney day apparently
so give thanks for your renal chums, and maybe stick some in a pie with steak later on?
permalink Was the latter
not just to cover up the former mistake?
permalink I would imagine so.
He's pretty wishy washy, and none too bright.
permalink Sounds like perfect
management material to me!
permalink Herring.
permalink 360degrees opposed is pretty odd way of putting it.

"x days" are often pretty contrived, and meaningless. the ones I can accept though are
Aids Day
International Women's day (not local women)
Red Nose
Nachos day
talk like a pirate
world sparrow day

permalink 180 dgrees would make more sense,
permalink or maybe that would just mean you oppesed the front, back and one side of it
I cant figure out if they are rotating the day, whilst looking at it. or standing inside swiveling round
permalink Or just a twat.
permalink never rotate a twat
permalink or nipples
they're not frequency dials.
permalink Though you get some interesting noises
if you do rotate them.
permalink *tweaks*
Hang on, was that Radio 4, go back a bit!
permalink Broadsword
calling Danny Boy
permalink Ha ha
Very good
permalink :)
permalink Hah, I spammed it in my office as well,
and since the marketing team are based in my office it's now ended up on our company's facebook :D
