Cartoon: International Womens Day

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??

    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.

    • Bearman says:

      Yes but few women showed up because they were all working. (ok…several were watching Oprah)

      • Bschooled says:

        Ha! Or Young and the Restless…

        • Bearman says:

          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.


          • susispice says:

            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!

  2. Dan says:

    I know my wife would appreciate a year. Or two. Maybe three. . . . definitely three.

  3. Laura says:

    Yep, it proves my point as well. Thank you very much for that cartoon… I knew you had a big heart!

  4. Dan Long says:

    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.

    • Bearman says:

      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.

      • Bo Lumpkin says:

        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.

  5. I loved the expression on the woman’s face and her frazzled hair..

    Not a happy person today!! lol

  6. 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). 🙂

    • Bearman says:

      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”

  7. MJ says:

    Bringing the funny! Good stuff!

  8. nursemyra says:

    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

    • Bearman says:

      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??

  9. WriterDood says:

    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.

  10. jammer5 says:

    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 🙂

  11. 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.

  12. Nate Fakes says:

    Women’s day? Isn’t that a magazine?

    Love the new look! Getting a banner ready, sir.

  13. Nef says:

    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.

  14. DadaHyena says:

    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!

  15. Chris W. says:

    No one told my wife. Which is awesome, because she definitely gets enough special treatment.

  16. Brogan says:

    My wife didn’t know either. How could my calender do such a disservice to her?!? 😛

  17. 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.

  18. Friggin Loon says:

    Blahahhahaha friggin women. Why couldn’t they just be happy with Mothers Day?

  19. Tracy Brady says:

    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!”

  20. jynksie says:

    EVERY DAY is international womans day!! …and there is a nuthin we gents can do ’bout it neither!! o.O

  21. Tony says:

    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…

    • Bearman says:

      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.

  22. jill says:

    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).

  23. Bo Lumpkin says:

    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.

    • Bearman says:

      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.

  24. George says:

    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?

  25. Michael says:

    Shut up bitch, now go fetch me a turkey pot pie…should be the next line if this was a 2 panel cartoon.
