It’s HAPPY WOMEN’S DAY?


I don’t get it.

Why have a separate day for women? Why the hype to have an ‘ego-booster’ day. Its pathetic! Are women a minority? They are the female ‘human being’. So why is there no Man’s Day? Mind u I’m not being a feminist about this…just logical and practical. I don’t think there should be any such DAY!for any sex!
Its like we need recognition for being born this way. Y? We don’t! its silly lol…really silly.
Today is just an excuse for companies,radio stations,websites,restaurants and pubs etc to launch discounts or special offers for women and in the process publicize themselves.

For instance radiocity is having a special on this and inviting women to come into the studios from 9-9 and chat with them. That’s ok…but they gave a no. to message in our comments etc. So I did..I said it’s an ego-booster. But my message wasn’t read out nor did I get a call. Now why did that happen? Because they don’t want any negative remarks. But there are two sides to a story and they could’ve had a debate on it, which would’ve been fair.

This post is to make people think. Why do we need such days…celebrate it as an excuse but don’t get sucked into it. Like one girl said on air “why do people messg me happy women’s day on my phone?I mean why cant they call me up so that I can feel more special!”(laughs)
See? That’s my point…is she stupid or just talking crap cause she’s on air..lol
Why do women need this ‘special’ feeling by being celebrated cause she’s a woman on one day of the year!?

I still don’t get it.

its a good thing to have because we've been segregated, victimized and squished on so often..

on the other hand what good does a single day do? we're still victimized, used and abused the day after...

(i am only playin devil's advocate here- don't take me seriously; i think women's day is a commercial marketin gimmick like v day friendship day and all that rot) :)

well I know wut u mean...it's like Valentines' Day and it's purely commericial...

but on the other hand, I still think it's good to have such special days to 'remind' ppl of certain things...cos not all ppl r appreciative of certain things in life unless they r reminded...:)
