A Men's Human Rights Movement Graphix Xtravaganza of Joy!!1!

Actual "meme" from AVFM. I did not make it up or choose the font.
Actual “meme” from AVFM. I did not make it up or choose the font.

That last post was a bit, well, grim. So I thought I’d lighten the mood with some terrible, terrible memes from A Voice for Men’s Facebook page. They’re so Men’s Human Rightsy that you can practically smell the human rights wafting off of them!

Or could that be the powerful and obnoxious odor of mendacity?

Either way, enjoy! For a fun game, see how many different examples of ideas that do not actually enhance human rights you can find in the memes below! For example, I found both misogyny and transphobia! See what else you can find!

This last one is kind of my favorite. Fuck you, mom! I took out the garbage last week!

I mean the first after the jump. Which means he second one. The “And we can kill you in your sleep”.

Where does this notion that all feminists see themselves, personally, as victims come from?

Pure misogyny.

Wait. Bonerplates?

Bonerplates! Is it a contest? Cause bonerplates will obviously win so I will not even try. I can’t do better than bonerplates 🙁

Also, LBT I like your new avatar 🙂

I actually have a bubble gum pink Strat, but I find it’s much easier to play the guitar if I hold it down in front of me rather than across my shoulders like a woodsman’s axe.

@friday jones: but if you have the guitar in front, you won’t be able to play Star Spangled Banner properly!

How can cats squeezing into small places be so adorable? Someone explain the evo-psych reason for it to me please.

I should be used to these sort of things…but this made my heart drop. I’d never date any guy that “liked” that page…

Actual conversation; scene, a typical fannish/nerd/ geek household Woman on couch with a tablet, man at desk across the room. He is facing away from the woman.

Me: Huh.

Himself: What? What did you find now?

Me: I’m reading Mammoth.

Himself: That fills me with foreboding.

(note: he claims he has an unspecified trauma disorder brought on by things like me trying to explain penguin whores. or GGG’s suggestions for his cure incel today! government programs or Melller’s dolls and brothels fetish)

Me: No, it’s nothing weird. It’s just, well, it appears I have been feministing wrong all this time.

Himself: Really? How, pray tell, have you failed to feminist?

Me: According to this meme from A Voice For Men- (Himself makes a rude noise)- having dazzled you with my claims of desiring equality I should have killed you in your sleep. We’ve been together nearly thirty years, and I haven’t even made a token effort to put an end to you. I’m a failure as a feminist.

Himself: You were… um, lulling me into a false sense of security and then you’d POUNCE, I just know it.

Me: You’re just trying to make me feel better.

Himself: Wait a minute. I’M A FEMINIST. Am I supposed to kill myself in my sleep?

Me: It’s just a meme so it doesn’t really have a very good procedure manual.

Himself: Well I guess we’ll await further instructions from our feminist overladies.You can lull me some more if you want, just to keep in practice.

I also find myself wondering if the artists and photographers know their stuff is being used this way?

@friday jones: LOL

@Kim: humans only bred from the cats that could fit into small boxes because they were the most adorable. So the fitting into small boxes is a trait that is correlated with adorableness, probably linked on the same chromosome, so is conserved between generations. Shit, I think I just did genetics instead of evo-psych.

David – for the t-shirt sizing, if it’s going to include the female shaping, are these going to be a tight fit? Or will they be like an unshaped or non-fitted shirt, or you’ll have both available?

Two of those really bother me. Most are just silly or ridiculous, but the first and the fifth one really point out what’s wrong with their worldview.

1) We will force all this stuff upon you without asking what you want… If you don’t like it, why are you so ungrateful??

5) Historical inaccuracies aside, it’s the same old story of “some person with presumably the same sexual organ as me did some good stuff, so I’m awesome by the penile transitive law. It’s math!”
They always do that with the positive things a small percentage of the male population have achieved throughout history. Never the negative. Nope, they make a big deal about not being associated with the bad things other men do. That particular transitive law is reserved for vaginas*.

*While I agree possession of one or the other of specified organs does not determine “manhood” or “womanhood,” I doubt the creators of these mathematical principles take that into consideration.

David, thanks, all I’ve been able to think about for the last hour or so has been the t-shirts. 🙂

kirbywarp:

Why would you have a picture of a macho dude working on a machine in a meme trying to argue that the industrial revolution helped women? Wouldn’t you picture an example of a way in which women were helped?

It’s a man building the first Industrial Revolver, which then started spitting out washing machines and sewing machines and personal massagers. That’s real history. The subsequent use of those appliances by women is trivial.

dlouwe:

Also, isn’t the whole “historical male innovation” thing basically the apex fallacy; claiming that men are innovators because a certain number of men were prominent innovators?

Ah, but the Apex Fallacy does not apply properly here, because the minimum number of inventions by an individual man is zero, just like with just about all women. It’s not possible to invent a negative number of things (notwithstanding the guy who actually invented negative numbers). Therefore, men on average have a higher number of inventions on their CV.

Tea just went everywhere. I only wish it hadn’t been out of my nose.

Has this simply been the greatest deception in human history?

oraclenine, that was the best conversation ever.

(note: he claims he has an unspecified trauma disorder brought on by things like me trying to explain penguin whores. or GGG’s suggestions for his cure incel today! government programs or Melller’s dolls and brothels fetish)

::nods in agreement:: There is probably a PhD psychology thesis waiting to be written about this condition.
