The Men’s Rights infographic no feminist can rebut! (Because it’s impossible to read.)

Is this the holy grail of MRA infographics?

Designed — if that’s the word for it — by an MRA and #GamerGater who calls himself BJSparky, this lovely “poster” offers up a 2000-word wall of text in such tiny type it’s impossible to read.

Well, not completely impossible. I snagged the largest version of the poster I was able to successfully download on BJ’s Deviant Art page and enlarged it until the text was a more reasonable size for reading — albeit a bit blurry. (There may be a larger version, but I got a broken image when I clicked on his download button.)

A quick scan reveals that this particular wall of text seems to have been built mostly with straw: it’s a list of allegedly feminist beliefs that no feminists actually believe. (Admittedly, I didn’t read every example; for all I know, the entire right side of the poster might be made up of passages copied from Supernatural fanfic or James Joyce’s Ulysses.)

Here are some of BJ’s straw feminist nuggets:

As you can see, BJ is as elegant a writer as he is a designer.

I would kind of love to see these straw feminist nuggets blown up and used as signs at some straw feminist demonstration.

Over on the Men’s Rights subreddit, the poster has gotten a more enthusiastic reception than I have given it here, garnering more than 100 upvotes and inspiring this amazing comment:

InWadeTooDeep 14 points 23 hours ago*   This is quite possibly the most well made poster I have ever seen; Maybe I just have low or unusual standards.  I wonder how /r/Feminism would react to this, lets find out. Banned in less than 24 minutes with no discussion and the only comment is concern-trolling.Sorry, bro, but I think there is a definite possibility that you have low and/or unusual standards.

@AlanRobertshaw: I’ve heard of the comic but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet! I have read “Sally Heathcote, Suffragette”, which was pretty good.

Is this the list of participating feminism strawmen in the Strawmen Olympics?

We want objectification of women in any way to be seen as oppressive and harmful, regardless of whether it’s respectful, welcome, encouraged, or legal.

Bwhahaha, what a steaming pile of hog-snot. Objectification may be legal (as are many other things of no redeeming value), but it can never be “respectful, welcome, [or] encouraged”, for the simple part that NO ONE RESPECTS OBJECTS, OBJECTS CAN’T WELCOME ANYTHING, AND OBJECTS DON’T ENCOURAGE THEIR OWN DAMN OBJECTIFICATION, YOU SILLY FUCKSOCK.

I like their choice of colors, though. The vibrant yet mature hues of the fuchsia blossom.comment image
