    *smile* It's so easy, shallow, and meaningless to tell somebody "you're wrong".

    I am reminded of a Peanuts cartoon from my childhood. Not a great cartoon, honestly, so I'll just relate the point. Lucy was to approach her grandmother and ask "grandmother, why is there a Mother's Day and a Father's Day, but there is no Children's Day?" And Linus predicted that her response would be "my dear, *every* day is Children's Day!" As usual, Linus was correct.

    And I'm afraid it is every bit as beside the point that technically yes, there is a Children's Day, as it is beside the point that there is an International Men's Day.

    I think it should be a week instead of a day.

    And the cisnormativity is killing me. Plenty of men and nonbinary people have vaginas, just like plenty of women, like me, have penises. Vagina ≠ woman. Penis ≠ man.
