So it seems yesterday was International Women’s Day. And while some women support the day as a way to highlight the struggles and oppression women face all over the world, other women are saying WTF. Only one day??
Cartoon: International Womens Day
Ain’t it amazing how we can let the big important days get by without noticing it. Do they have a parade or anything for National Women’s Day.
Yes but few women showed up because they were all working. (ok…several were watching Oprah)
Ha! Or Young and the Restless…
Is that even still on the air??
and Bold and Beautiful!!!!!
i didnt even KNOW it was IWD.
really, feminism did work wonders and I am thankful for that but we did lose out on a lot of things too….
1. men knowing that their responsibility was to provide a comfortable living for their wife and their kids and failure to do this would result in death by poisoned tea/coffee.
2. Men no longer are men. A lot of men dont know how to do manly things, they have lost their manhood. piss weak metrosexuals piss me off.
3. gentlemanly manners went out the window
4. Men are confused. They know how if theyre coming or going. Every woman now has different expectations of a man that women like me get disappointed when we come across who guy who believes and THINKS I should pay 50% of everything…oh how wrong you are…
and many others but i will probably be berated by many people who think im anti feminist..i am not..i just think we are taking it too far sometimes… particularly in countries where feminism really took off. I agree in other societies it is almost totally absent…
I know people from certain cultures were the man and woman roles are clearly defined and when it works well it is like a dream come true. I wouldnt mind cooking, cleaning, looking after the kids etc while my husband brought home the bacon (TOP of the line of course) in exchange for all the worldly goods being in my name. hehe there are pros and cons to each situation.
1. Suitors of Susi be warned.
2. That is why I try to stay fat and lazy. Keeps me manly
3. Open your own damn door
4. You are right. You should be paying 100% of the time.
whatever!!! hahaha my man knows what his responsibilities are!! lol
and he better staythat way!
and NO i shouldnt pay for myself 100% of the time! women spend enough money on clothes, shoes, lingerie, makeup, hair styling etc etc to look hot for our men…and other sexual stuff we do.. we have earned it thank you!
I know my wife would appreciate a year. Or two. Maybe three. . . . definitely three.
Yeah but that would mean you would have to get off your butt more. She knew what she was signing up for.
Yep, it proves my point as well. Thank you very much for that cartoon… I knew you had a big heart!
haha…a big heart? Well if that is all it takes then this will be an easy status to maintain.
Was I supposed to get the women I know something? Hopefully they overlook “Men’s Day,” whenever that is, so I don’t look too bad.
They overlooked it so hard that they don’t even have one. Can you believe that?
Plus how come they don’t have a Couples with No Kids Day. How come parents and grandparents always seem to get theres.
Let’s don’t start addin’ days. I think we need to start cuttin’ out some of the special days. I have enough to forget already without addin’ more.
I think I am going to start a Bearman Day. Celebrate by drinking a beer and sending me donations.
I loved the expression on the woman’s face and her frazzled hair..
Not a happy person today!! lol
The funny thing is everytime I put red hair on a female cartoon my wife thinks I am poking fun at her.
Nothing says I care like that oh so special “Happy International Women’s Day Card”. If they make them, I guess (seems like this is an unexploited market). 🙂
Bschooled and I will have to add them to our list of undermarketed marketable greeting cards.
How about one a boss can give a female employee
Front: “I know you have already worked 10 hours today”
INside: “So take the rest of the day off. Happy International Women’s Day”
Oh, the fun we could have with this holiday…
I’ll think of some others, but let’s keep the same cartoon idea. That kid’s face kills me…
Once you get our contract, I am all over the drawing.
Bringing the funny! Good stuff!
ah but she is wearing a shade of violet! I wore green and white….. G (Give) W (Women) V (the Vote) – green, white and violet are the colours for IWD
Wasn’t the right to vote given to women last century in both our countries?? I assume that is referring to some countries where it is not the case.
I thought it was a pink housecoat. Do any women under 66 years old still even wear housecoats??
I didn’t do anything in particular for this day, but I’m thinking we should start a tradition or something. Let’s see, for Women’s day how about all the credit card companies forgive all credit card debit? That’s sounds pretty good for everyone! I bet people would really look forward to Women’s day if all the credit card companies forgave all credit card debit on that day.
You mean credit card DEBT????
Many firsts for women this year. And congrats to Kathryn Bigelow for the Hurt Locker, Sandra Bullock, Hillary Clinton and the eighy one year old woman who made her first sky-dive 🙂
BTW, like the new site 🙂
Are you saying a woman hasn’t won an Oscar before??
Of course not. But K Bigelow was the first woman director to win an Oscar. And I thought Sandra deserved hers.
I need to see Blind Side. I didn’t know who directed Hurt Locker. I guess then that is a great achievement.
1. love the new design. very user friendly. you genius you!
2. eh, that whole sufferage thing is so overated.
3. i gotta go. laundry is done and dinner is burning.
Better than the Dinner is done and the laundry is burning.
Women’s day? Isn’t that a magazine?
Love the new look! Getting a banner ready, sir.
Yes I bought you a subscription. Well actually you will be billed for it too.
Your image is sadly true. Women deserve much better than they get, except mine of course, who must have been really evil in some past life on 0order to deserve ME.
Yes in both of our cases our other half must have been a hellion in a past life.
That poor woman! Not only because her husband is insensitive to her needs, but it seems he abuses the child as well…HE’S MISSING ALL OF HIS TEETH!
NO…he just has a huge overbite. Thanks for stopping by!!
No one told my wife. Which is awesome, because she definitely gets enough special treatment.
Can we ask her??
My wife didn’t know either. How could my calender do such a disservice to her?!? 😛
Mine gets treated like a queen everyday. I get one day…ok the whole birthday week.
Many women did not even know the way was to celebrate their achievements. Its a pity but they are so important-we hail them everyday.
Unless they ask us to rub their sweaty feet after they have been wearing hose all day.
Blahahhahaha friggin women. Why couldn’t they just be happy with Mothers Day?
Or Valentines Day, or Grandparents Day, or Sweetest Day, or Easter, or..
True Story. I happen to work with one of the first female pilots in the world. Yesterday while everyone was calling to congratulate and interview her for Women’s Day she found time to have a huge Menapause Dragon Attack. Someone told her “Hey Captain, lighten up. It’s your day today.” and she said exactly what the woman in your cartooon said, “Really, I hadn’t noticed!”
haha…I am glad I wasn’t witness to the “huge Menopause Dragon Attack” I think Godzilla would be cowering.
EVERY DAY is international womans day!! …and there is a nuthin we gents can do ’bout it neither!! o.O
Just smile meekly and take out the trash.
International Women’s Day is actually Valentine’s Day – so they must get two holidays. If you think about it, Valentine’s Day is TOTALLY a woman’s holiday. If you don’t buy your woman a gift on that day – you’re dead. If YOU don’t get a gift (and you’re a guy), you’re deal with it and not care too much. Thus making it a woman’s day!
This sounds like a man who thought he could just get by with a carnation on Sweetest day.
Jeez…I forgot about Sweetest Day. Who am I kidding – they have 3 holidays!
You forgot her birthday, christmas, anniversary…
Every day is woman’s day at our house, I love my wife dearly & appreciate everything she does. I’ll let her do the cooking, I’ll let her chop the wood, I’ll let her mow the lawn, I’ll let her wash the car, I’ll let her dig the veggie garden. Then I’ll tell her how much I appreciate her efforts…
Mine tells me to do all that stuff and then says things like “You know you look really sexy cleaning the cat litter” As if.
I had never heard of this day until all my blog buddies brought it to my attention. For some reason it must have been kept a big secret (I wonder why).
I think you were out taking pictures when the announcement came through..haha
I was just wondering Bearman… Is this a record number of comments on one day. I know it is a high number and is it because of the great subject matter or is it because so many people are competing to try and get an add on your site. Either way you are probably sitting back smiling from ear to ear. Hack cartoonist indeed. You sir are a pure genious.
No…I think my record is like in the 70’s but you have to cut everything in half b/c I comment on almost all of my commenters posts.
I just found out recently that this month is Women’s History Month. That’s something I had never heard of. We need to be nice to the ladies, give our women a break, and let them get off their feet so they can lay on their backs.
Uhh…I said that wrong, didn’t I?
Let’s go to Mrs Stubby to find out if you are in trouble or not.
Shut up bitch, now go fetch me a turkey pot pie…should be the next line if this was a 2 panel cartoon.
It is that loving attitude that has kept the unemployed dad…well unemployed..haha
