Recently, Harry’s Shaving company posted a tweet educating its male customers that they need to redefine themselves as men, and that what we once thought were biological markers of masculinity expressed universally across the animal kingdom, are in fact social constructs that should be wiped out. The day on which the tweet was posted, believe it or not, was “International Men’s Day”. I kid you not, there is actually a “men’s day” as well as a womyn’s day (even though men have given us nothing but sexism, racism, rape culture and electricity). What next? A “white history” month to celebrate slavery, racism, Antisemitism, cars and airplanes? The tweet rightfully expresses shock that there is even a day to celebrate men, and then goes on to educate men about their toxic masculinity, and the need to be soft, apologetic and weak.
Today is International Men’s Day. Believe it or not, that’s a thing.
Now more than ever, being a man demands introspection, humility, and optimism. To get to a better tomorrow, we need to take a look at today, and at the misguided stereotypes that got us here in the first place. pic.twitter.com/1lViZqWbIx

Allah bless Harry’s and its beta male customers! If I had facial hair, I’d be shopping with them every week!
