6 mindbending MGTOW memes to brighten your Presidents Day

It’s all a little confusing

By David Futrelle

Stretch your mind a little with these lovely memes, courtesy of some of Twitter’s most creative Men Going Their Own Way. While almost all of these images raise more questions than they answer, some are so thoroughly incomprehensible that they sort of broke my brain. If you can explain them, please do.

You might want to start with this one, which could keep you busy for some time. Maybe you could diagram it for me?

Speaking of diagrams, my brain shut down as soon as I even glanced at this one:

This one, thankfully, has many fewer words.

Then there’s this:

The big question I have about this one is what planet the author lives on. Here on earth, misogynists throw fits every time a woman declares herself independent. And I have yet to meet anyone other than MGTOWs who find the prospect of these guys “going their own way” even a little bit troublesome. Go your own way further!

This one made me a little queasy:

Why are the Berenstain Bears the first thing this guy thinks of when he thinks of sex? Leave the poor bears alone; they didn’t do anything to you!

In case you’re wondering if alt-right Nazithink has made any inroads into the MGTOW movement, this last graphic may provide a helpful clue:

Enjoy the rest of your Presidents Day, if you can.

I tried to understand. I blacked out.

Oh. Bless you, David. I love MGTOW and MRA memes. They’re just so laughably terrible.

I really want to know why the third meme has a picture of a triple cheesburger or a stack of pancakes hovering over a woman’s hand.

Oh jees, I’ve seen some bad powerpoint in my day but those diagrams are intense. It’s literally just a splurge of concepts splatted together with some arrows in, and a collection of things he imagines women think about him.

I make association diagrams like that. They’re not too uncommon in educational psychology. Arrows connecting concepts, representing the flow of processes. But that mess up there? Yeah, no. Failing grade, don’t see me after class, just, just go. Just go. That thing just screams “I have no ability to self-critique” at me.

@WWTH, I dunno, i think that as a symbol for “what every woman wants”, a cheeseburger in hand probably isn’t a terrible one. I’m sure he’s imagining they’re gold dubloons though. Women only want men who give them treasure from the Spanish Main, you know.

I’m also curious about the pancakes, and also why the miggy-toe has a black power fist on his side. I kinda don’t think that belongs there, am I wrong?

Oh, well. As long as they think they’re winning, maybe one of these days they’ll actually peel off and go.

I don’t know how recent this is, but apparently Cernovich and Posobiec have been suspended from Medium.

So wait a feminist is a woman who complains “louder” but all women are feminists? Then who are they complaining louder than?

…I’m jaded from plowing through a couple dozen ‘memes’ like this in past posts. There’s absolutely nothing original here. Just bad flowcharts, poorly thought-out graphics, and arbitrarily inserted antisemitism.

David, I’m delighted to see that you feel well enough to dig through the garbage for us again. Never think we don’t appreciate it.

Virtue and Moir won! Yay! I’m such a big fan of theirs and couldn’t be more happy than if I was a Canadian myself!

Okay. Sorry about the off topic. The figure skating forum I was on keeps crashing from too much traffic and I had to get that out of my system.

In the “Blue Simp vs. MGTOW” one, I think the “simp” is also supposed to be Jewish. Look at the profile and tell me it doesn’t resemble that racist caricature in the last meme. Hooked nose, beard…

As always, MGTOWs…JUST GO.

Oh, I love MGTOW memes! They absolutely represent the fevered imaginary women that don’t exist IRL!

I really want to sit these guys down and gently explain that if they were some Raptured tomorrow, very few women (outside of their relatives, probably) would be wailing, gnashing their teeth, and begging for their return.

1. Okay, let’s tackle that diagram just for fun. How many traits that supposedly apply only to eeevil feminists regularly turn up in Donald Trump’s statements and behavior?

• “I’m better than you”
• “I’m entitled to all that you have”
• “I can do whatever to whomever I want”
• “They worship me”
• “They judge me”
• “I’m a Winner so I don’t have to try”
• “I can get away with anything”
• “You’re not useful so you’re disposable”
• “I’m always right so you must be wrong”

2. The Berenstain Bears meme is even creepier than David mentions. The two characters shown are school-age children. Who are also brother and sister. Used in a meme claiming that sex is all that women have to offer. Ew, ew, ew.

Whoops! Might’ve mentally skipped over that part–see it here, there, and everywhere nowadays.

@personalpest, point 2

That diagram is a good example of the cargo cult mentality so common among the right wing. There is a superficial resemblance to the Duluth Wheel or the cycle of abuse diagrams I’ve seen, but deeper than that it’s just gibberish in a circle. The author has seen the cycle concept used, but lacks the understanding to actually replicate it, instead tossing ideas they dislike onto paper just to fit the pattern they’re mimicking.

These people really need to find a less humiliating outlet for their issues and hurt feelings.

Um, citation needed?

Not that any of these memes are supported by reality.

I had the same thought. Why would they use characters who are siblings?

However, I do appreciate that she looks like she is rolling her eyes at him.

The level of psychological projection in the diagram is absolutly astounding. Simply by observing the other memes produced by the same people, you can see the exact same message displayed. Women are useless unless its for sex; all that they have (their bodies) should belong to me; women only think about me or should only think about me and this obsess me; despite all odds I’m in the right; if a women doesn’t give me sex or isn’t pretty enough she is useless. The only changes required are: where are all the good men must be replaced by where are all the good women, feminism must be replaced by misogyny, gynocentrism by MGTOW. Rarely have I seen a meme that tells that much about its producer.

Surplus to Requirements-The Icelandic Women’s Strike was absolutely awesome. Ninety percent of Icelandic women participated! It really has a huge impact on societies when half the population stops working, even for one day. It really shuts everything down. It teaches us how vital women, and professions that are dominated by women, are to society. Perhaps we should have another? Imagine if the whole world participated!

Hmm, the second diagram can be applied to about anything you dislike… If you swap gynocentrism by androcentrism and feminism by masculinism, it is the same (maybe also swap “where all the good men…” by “where all the good persons…”). That works well with brussels sprouts too (i have always suspected there was some kind of conspiracy based on brussels sprouts. They are like emetic to me, that is a proof !).
