March 8, 2016 was International Women’s Day — day that began in the early 20th century as an opportunity to acknowledge, celebrate and respect women while recognizing how far society must come before gender parity truly exists.

It’s also a day where plenty of online trashcans claim there is no International Men’s Day.

On that front, they’re sorely mistaken, and British comedian Richard Herring spent all day correcting them.

Helpfully reminding the masses of the world of the true facts they clearly forgot to Google.

Confirming for them that International Men’s Day is a real thing.


And also explaining that it’s not sexist.


Mad respect, dude.
