again!?
8 March is International Women’s Day, it is also a day when comedian Richard Herring replies to all the idiots on twitter who ask when International Men’s day is going to be...
He’s already started to send the first few “it’s on the 19 of November” tweets and like last year, he’s set up a gofundme for donations for Refuge.
IIRC mumsnetters were fairly supportive of this last year so I thought I’d give you the heads up in case you fancy donating to a good cause

Every day 🙄

I'll pop the date in my calendar.

I made the mistake if making a Facebook post (public) on November 19, about how toxic masculinity affects men's mental health....I got called a cunt and was threatened.

RH tends to irritate me, but this is an amazing piece of work he does every year. The Refuge fundraiser last year was incredible.

Everyday is Men's Day.

Every. Fucking. Day.

Sorry my point is not entirely relevant but it's the only lasting memory of International Men's day I have.

elQuintoConyo Sat 02-Mar-19 21:59:06

Come the fuck on! It's every fucking day!

hmm

Redshoeblueshoe Sat 02-Mar-19 22:00:36

Yep it's every fucking day

I think you need this calendar OP.

Top right.

GrubbyHipsterBeard Sat 02-Mar-19 22:04:41

Did people read the OP?

If you fancy donating to Refuge and supporting Richard in repeatedly tweeting “it’s on November 19th” all day on 8th March

SwearyInn Sat 02-Mar-19 22:06:05

I’m sorry I’m a bit pissed and didn’t read your OP properly.

I’ll send myself to the room of RTFT fuckwits.

YeahYeahYeahFineWhatever Sat 02-Mar-19 22:06:45

SwearyInn that’s hilarious!

FindPrimeLorca Sat 02-Mar-19 22:06:49

We’ve had RTFT. Can we now have RTFOP?

Whisky2014 Sat 02-Mar-19 22:08:38

What's the point in these days? First time I've heard of them confused

Catinthetwat Sat 02-Mar-19 22:08:52

Thanks op! Yep love RH doing this every year.

AlrightTreacle Sat 02-Mar-19 22:08:58

£150,454 raised so far! Never heard of Richard Herring before, but good going!

I’m glad you like it OP. It always amuses me - and it’s so true.

I’ve just donated. So at least my not RTFT had a positive outcome smile

YeahYeahYeahFineWhatever Sat 02-Mar-19 22:14:04

The just giving one was from when he did it last year, still seems to accept donations I guess, the gofundme for this year has started raising about £1,500

OlennasWimple Sat 02-Mar-19 22:24:15

I love Richard Herring solely for a) This Morning with Lee and Herring; and b) his tweetathon every IWD

YeahYeahYeahFineWhatever Sat 02-Mar-19 22:32:03

Cheeeeeis I’m sorry you got a public bashing for posting.
And as we all know women get so much stick and abuse on the likes of FB and Twitter, so I think Richard challenging the (male) moaners is a good thing, plus it’s raising money for Refuge who work with women and girls.

Vicky1990 Sat 02-Mar-19 22:38:24

What is the Refuge that has been mentione?.

NoImAVeronica Sat 02-Mar-19 22:38:48

Love RH for this, thanks for the heads up. Donated.
