That book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, taught me a valuable lesson: some people are just idiots.
If you start talking about taking care of refugees, people will ask why we don't care about veterans. If you start talking about women's rights or International Women's Day, people will start asking about Men's Day. It's a never-ending cycle of refusing to acknowledge that oft-neglected groups can benefit from having entire days dedicated to them so they can receive some recognition.
It'd be great if everyone treated everyone equally regardless of race, religion, or creed, but that's just not the case. And because International Women's Day, there are plenty of people who are already pre-empting the "What about Men's Day?" crybabies.
And J.K. Rowling is one of them.
The Harry Potter author started a chain reaction of pro-IWD tweets, too.
Which, of course, people had a problem with.
Some thought JK was referring to Twitter Rival, Piers Morgan.
In January, Morgan made headlines for tweeting, "I'm planning a 'Men's March' to protest at the creeping global emasculation of my gender by rabid feminists. Who's with me?" Needless to say, the post got a ton of backlash, including from his "Good Morning Britain" co-host, Susanna Reid. "You know you sit next to a feminist every morning, right? @piersmorgan," she tweeted in response to her colleague's remarks.
Some men were genuinely offended by J.K.'s tweet.
This response pretty much sums up the drummed-up drama over people hating on "International Men's Day."
It's kind of like how "Blue Lives Matter" didn't become a thing until the "Black Lives Matter" movement started.
Because you can't possibly care about two things at once, right? As our country continues to become more divided, we'll just be over here dreaming of a better world.
