International Womens Day?
March 8, 2011 2 Comments
Sorry I just don’t see the point of a day that’s for slightly over half the human population. What’s it supposed to achieve? Enlighten me. Essentially it seems you are pushing the rights of one half over the other. There are cries for an International Mens Day, but I think there is one of them too – and I find that equally pointless.
We currently see a European Court deciding insurance cant be sold on the basis of what sex you are (even if women may be a better risk). Is that what you want. Or what about the Race for Life. It discriminates against men. They get breast cancer. They have relatives who have suffered from the disease – but cant take part. And yes I know there are plenty of other ways they can get involved. But can you discriminate when it suits and cry foul of discrimination when it doesn’t?
PS:- And of course one commenter bemoaned the fact that a hairdresser can put up one charge for cutting the hair of a woman (greater) than that of a man, before knowing the work involved… and I completely get the point.
