The Twitter hashtag #EndFathersDay started out as a hoax, but feminists quickly picked it up and ran with it, according to the Washington Examiner.
To some angry feminists, Father’s Day is a celebration of patriarchy and oppression, and men shouldn’t even be allowed near children. And if you don’t agree with them, you are the problem.
Instead of Fathers Day we need Castration Day #EndFathersDay

It even inspired some people to want to end Mother’s Day, too.
But then some people turned around and attacked the hashtag.

Fortunately, there are still some sane people, and some great fathers.

#EndFathersDay sounds like a terrible joke gone wrong. Men and women should be equal. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day co-exist. IT’S GOOD.

#EndFathersDay? What a wonderful example for women to give their children, particularly their sons.
