International Day for the Elimination of Violence against men [View all]

. . . is never.

Men are the victims of homicide, assault, and suicide at rates roughly 6 times higher than women.
Men represent the vast majority of those killed in wars.
And there's even evidence that men are about as likely to be victims of DV as women (it's just rarely reported and even less likely to be prosecuted).

But you despite being the primary victims of violence you will never see an international effort to reduce violence against males. At best you could hope for boys to be included with women (as in "women and children".

Men are viewed as disposable.

Being seen as less valuable and having our deaths be less tragic is yet another male privilege.

/sorry for the depressing post. But this stuff irritates me.
