antifeminism drama kings entitled babies hundreds of upvotes I'm totally being sarcastic irony alert men who should not ever be with women ever misogyny MRA reddit

Men’s Rights Redditors outraged by poster suggesting that men teach boys “about gender equality and healthy, equal relationships.”

Gender equality is MISANDRY!
Gender equality is MISANDRY!

Apparently, to a lot of the regulars in the Men’s Rights subreddit — like the hundreds who upvoted a post of this picture — the notion that men should raise their sons to respect women as equals is nothing more than foul propaganda and MISANDRY of the highest order.

And seriously, those guys in the poster look like total White Knight Beta Manginas.

Some of the Men’s Rightsers were especially offended by the white ribbon at the bottom of the poster, which they saw as a vaguely sinister reminder of a World War I campaign to shame British men into enlisting in the army. Because suggesting to your sons that boys and girls should be treated equally is the same as being guilt-tripped into becoming cannon fodder:

TheOtherBono 54 points 1 day ago (80|26)  White ribbons. Just like the white feathers handed to non-conscript men of the UK during WW1 by women to shame them into enlisting. How sweet       [–]froggymorning 14 points 22 hours ago (23|9)  What a subtle and effective slap.      MRMRising [-2] 6 points 23 hours ago (12|6)  ...and just as destructive.

Others used the poster as an opportunity to rail against … marriage. The top comment in the thread, as I write this post, is this one.

LAMFF 85 points 1 day ago (118|33)  Boys, avoid marriage at all costs. There is nothing equitable about that relationship.

Elezeid expanded on this theme:

Elezeid 10 points 20 hours ago (13|3)  Boys, if you have a child and don't stay with the mother, you will have all of the responsibilities and none of the rights. So heads up.

Caspian_Drifter responded to the eeeevil poster with a rhetorical question that unintentionally helped to underscore the whole point of the campaign in the first place:

Seriously, ladies, why do gals like to go on and on about “equality” so much when your ladybrains weren’t even smart enough to come up with the idea in the first place? I mean, really, you ungrateful gals, you have a man/men to thank for that.

If I remember correctly, it was T. Reginald Equality who came up with the idea, with some help from his brother Ned (who suggested that he name it after himself).

OMIGOD THE CONSPIRACY GOES SO DEEP! (figuratively speaking, of course, since we are talking about the misandric sky)

Marriage is misandric! Have you been to a wedding guys? The man has to get up in front of all those people and promise to do all this stuff for a woman! OK, sure, so does the woman but ladies are supposed to be doing a bunch of stuff for men. The only things men are supposed to do for women involve his penis in some way. How else will he find time to get together with other Men and make Manly important Things happen? This poster is clearly a subtle form of ‘bride-washing’ concocted by bitter feminists who want to lock down an alpha to feed them mammoths and hunt the stray bon bons that have fallen down the back of the sofa, when it is man’s natural state to have fertile HB10 18 year olds making him sammiches for all his days. No babies though, the fertility is just for decoration.

We are in favor of helping boys. It is you feminists that hate boys: http://mensrightsboard.blogspot.com/2013/07/feminists-hate-boys-and-want-to-hurt.html

The white ribbon campaign is anti-male and we believe they are being deceitful. That is why we are not buying it.

Oh, and the last wedding I went to not only were the flowers, tablecloths, invitations and bride’s dress white, so was the dessert! Not even cheesecake, most manly of the desserts, remains untainted.

My brother is so misandric. We just took pictures and he’s like “am I really that white” XD It was funny…while it happened at least. Probably sounds weirder now.

wow, this comment thread, where one commenter doesn’t understand what’s bad about the poster and the other commenters leap in to explain that it’s evil because singling ANY group out is discrimination… this is textbook failure to understand how the world works:

Men take all the responsibility for children because you feed children money and then they grow. They need no care or work what soever. (For some reason my phone won’t let me put a space between so and ever.)

The white rose studentships at Yorkshire universities are total misandary. There is also White Stuff clothing. The poor men, so many white things.

What is so scary and threatening about healthy relationships? And rape-mongering-penis-monsters? That’s pretty extreme, even for an MRA.

Did make me lol, though. Sometimes my imagnination is too vivid…

I’m also totally going to start wearing white everywhere. If my clothes then get dirty and/or stained (an inevitable certainty, I’m afraid) I shall simply REFUSE to wash it myself and take it to a dry cleaner instead.

MISANDRY COMPLETE.

Also white: White-out. That’s why MRAs never edit their screeds.

David is wrong, equality was invented by Monseigneur Réginald de l’Égalité du Vercors. Pshh, Americans. 😉

Since it was invented by a caucasian man inventor, equality must advantage white men. Duh, obviously.

@Ladymondegreen –
The misandric CIA is spending over a half million dollars on a program to ‘mitigate climate change’ (*wink wink* chemtrails by lizard people), therefore increasing white clouds over manly black and brown clouds. Is it a coincidence that this poster came out around the same time? I think not.

I am very proud to be an Ontarian. 🙂 I haven’t seen this poster in “the wild”, but I’ll be looking for it. It’s a great message!

As an aside: I wonder if the MRA’s are peeved because the poster has brown people on it, and not just manly, “upstanding” whiter-than-whitest-white dudes… but they’re too chickenshit-scared of the scary brown people to say it.

So anything White is misandry? Awesome excuse for a Breaking Bad marathon! See y’all in several days’ time.

Gee guys, I wonder if by mentioning marriage, gnl means the historical racism and women-as-property and current bullshit about poly, trans, or queer folk?

Naaaaah!

I just read the comments at reddit. Wow. What a bunch of lazy, good-for-nothing assholes over there. No wonder I’ve dropped pretty much every friend who happens to be a redditor. Eventually they reveal themselves to be hateful, small-minded jerks with no idea how to live in the real world. I just never realized that being active on reddit isn’t just a coincidence, but a symptom of a much larger problem.

I have decided to celebrate Misandry Day today. Join me, friends! (One does this by wearing white pants.)

What (or who) is PP/FF/IR?

Also, I walk around with white cat hair all over me all the time.

White cats count as double misandry, right?
