Ah, the old “It’s a conference” CEU scam. You look at the website, and the stuff it claims to be interested in talking about almost seems like there could be some good stuff to talk about, maybe well enough to convince someone somewhere to sign off on the CEU OK box. I do hope though, that if anyone with the ability to sign off on CEUs went to it, they’d immediately be, “OK, no, this is a political centered (right) conference.” Then again, the number of people with interesting mental health issues likely to be there, may provide plenty of examples for any mental health providers, so maybe it’s OK?

JS, I absolutely think that mental health professionals who counsel people with the MRA mindset should be familiar with MRA talking points. From that point of view, attending a conference like this can give them a lot of insight.

I find the idea that some of them will self select to only explore the first, apparently academically credible, MRA, perspective they see both frightening and very plausible.

I also don’t have much faith in the likelihood that the bureaucratic staff involved in signing off CEUs research each instance of a CEU for genuine value.
I’m hoping they would rely on specific statements from respected professional bodies that a particular course meets the standards of the profession, and I’m fearful that would mean that this conference has been rubber-stamped by some Australian mental health professional body. In which case, that body should be asked to justify that decision.
Of course, the most likely scenario is that the claim of being CEU eligible is yet another lie. Fingers crossed! In that case, AVfM should be made to defend or retract it.

It should say “this is what a typical MRA meme looks like”.

I can kinda understand that regressive organisations are unable to attract talented, creative designers and artists. But I just can’t work out why their own sense of aesthetics is so broken that they can’t see how crap their own efforts are.

I mean, you’d expect that kind of blindness to their own inadequacy to pop up from time to time… the world is full of people who are a bit rubbish but think they’re pretty good, but this inability to recognise bad design if it smacked them in the face seems to be endemic in the manosphere and alt-reich.

Well, with as much yelling about women as they do they don’t really have the time to think about design, now do they? We should all really be more understanding and more helpful.

Why, we could even help them redesign their shirt. For example, a nice dark brown would be a good colour. One could resize the font to fit on the breast, nicely placed so that it’s on one or both sides of the button.
Granted, it would be hard to read, so the most important word could be in much larger script below the buttons.

And we could correct their spelling, too. Seems they spelled “raging shit stain” wrong.

I call bullshit; I can only suspect that people who would consider themselves enemies of the MRM would choose such an article to print supposedly men-friendly messages on (and in such print, nonetheless). I deduce from the lack of skill employed in the making of this article that it was done by a woman, who often possess subpar editing and computer skills than men, and I’m further inclined to think of this shirt as a type of insult, given that if one is to take what the message of the shirt is saying at face value, one would be led to believe that MRAs resemble button-up polo shirts. They seem to be implying with the message “This is what an MRA looks like,” that MRAs resemble t-shirts, a subtle way of implying that MRAs aren’t human.

£19 for that piece of shit? They haven’t even printed the shirts yet, someone just put type across a photograph. That money would be better spent on child support.

@Croquembouche: I don’t know why I’m surprised at the $300 (AUD?) price tag, but Christ, that is a ripoff. I could hit five furry conventions for that. And I have to imagine that would be a lot more fun than listening to Paul Elam and friends going on about their usual bullshit for three days.

Or, OR, the arts are not an appropriate MANLY subject of study, so that’s why all their designs suck. Because “real men” don’t waste their precious STEM time on arts and crafts.

It’s traditionally feeemale, anyways. Obviously any man doing arts and crafts is a beta mangina cuck.

Also anything a man does is automagically good. Because a man did it.

NOTE: The above post contains approximately 45% of your daily dose of sarcasm.

I’ve wondered about tagging a troll with an obviously administration added label as a n alternative to immediate banning. Maybe have it colored, or flashing.

Abunga could use an “essence of citation needed” at the very least. Why should I or any other person accept thier opinion about the skills of women? The women professionals I know are quite skilled.

Also trying to suggest “men are shirts” as a means of dehumanization is just bizzare. While objects are often chosen in dehumanizing comparisons this one makes no sense. It’s certainly no “c#mdumpster”. There is an element of “tool like use” to the dehumanization. Where are we suggesting MRA’S are being worn? Maybe there is something in the style complaints but I have to admit that I see nothing wrong with the style (or relevant).

But hey, if a miggy wants to let thier motivated reasoning cause splash damage in thier own community in response to us that’s fine with me.

Honestly I’d have guessed as much if they’d just worn the shirt plain. If that shirt style and color doesn’t scream lonely basement dweller or middle aged bitter divorcee nothing does.

I wore a polo shirt for work for ten years so it’s doubtful that I’ll willingly wear one again. But at least it was a nice forest green with an embroidered logo and not that mess!

Oi, that color. And right after I had a dream I was once again color-correcting catalog items.

Did I blow your MIND, Abungus? I worked in digital pre-press for years as an actual woman among a lot of actual women, we did actual layout on actual computers, with type and photos and color correction an’ ever’thang!!! Women graphic designers are actually pretty common, dear boy.

I am constantly delighted by your ability to use so many words to say so very little!

@Leo – while I’ve never been much of a hugger IRL, I find that I am positively profligate with internet hugs so here ya go!

Men are shirts. Women are jean shorts. Non-binary people are wrap-around Diane von Furstenberg dresses.

So, if MRAs are polo shirts, what would beta cucks be? And what kind of shirt is Chad? A mesh-thing to show off his superior alpha physique?

@LindsayIrene – I love those dresses. They always look good.

@zaunfink – I’m sure Chad wears a polo shirt, but with a popped collar. Beta cucks are presumably schlubby, I think, so I would think they wear the white short-sleeved shirt and tie like Michael Douglas in “Falling Down” or, say, popular comics character “Dilbert”.

Cucks are frilly cocktail aprons. A Chad is anything James Spader wore in a movie in the 80s.
