[Xmca-l] Re: Congratulations Men



Dear Colleagues -Here is the latest word on International Mens day and its
presence in the United States thanks to a hint about checking Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Men%27s_Day.

Is it just me, or does anyone out there think that some thought should be
giving to gender neutral holidays instead of the normative order? For
example, how about a Parents Day and a Grandparents day. With time off and
a little family time, whatever that family might be.
