Examples of Steak and Blowjob Day
Today is Steak and BJ Day, and we’re all out of steak.
HuffPost, March, 2014
Folks, we know that "Steak and Blowjob Day" was born from misogyny, right? It's not cute and sexy, it's rooted in "bitches owe us".

An ex randomly sent me one of those "Steak and Blowjob day" memes and a wink face and if that doesn't identify the kind of daily shit women go through with men then I don't know what will.

Where does Steak and Blowjob Day come from?

Steak and Blowjob Day is credited as the 2002 brainchild of Boston radio host Tom Birdsey. His concept was that Valentine’s Day was a Hallmark holiday just for women, and thought men deserved a reward for all the time and effort they spent making February 14th special for the ladies. Ha. Charming. 

The idea spread quickly across the internet, getting an Urban Dictionary entry in February 2004. 2008 was a breakout year for the holiday, with the newfound popularity of social-media sites like Twitter serving as a catalyst to launch the holiday into the mainstream.

Social media may have made Steak and Blowjob day popular, but math nerds prevailed. March 14th is also Pi Day, a celebration of mathematics and its cornerstone irrational number π—and people seem to like celebrating eating pie more than eating steak and d**k. Faith in humanity restored—as male entitlement to oral sex and red meat is a whole lotta toxic masculinity.

Who uses Steak and Blowjob Day?

Steak and Blowjob Day has spawned an official website, which sells merchandise like panties and aprons, presumably for women (or men) to wear while they prepare fillet and fellatio for their fella. In response to criticism that the holiday is sexist, a portion of proceeds go to breast cancer research.

Men on social media like to announce the arrival of the holiday in the hopes that their partner will get the hint, but we doubt very much that this works

Feminists are generally not fans of Steak and Blowjob Day. Mashable’s The Jane Dough called it “the White History Month of holidays,” and HuffPost simply said it makes them want to gag.

You should probably avoid mentioning Steak and Blowjob Day unless you’re fully prepared to celebrate its women-centered sister holiday, Chicken and Lickin’ Day, which takes place on March 15th or 21st, depending who you ask.

Some English speakers outside the US may refer to the fake holiday as Steak and Knobber Day.
