ProMaleMemes, with its 148 subscribers, is not the most popular of the Men’s Rightsy subreddits. It’s not just unpopular compared with the original Men’s Rights subreddit, with its 319,488 subscribers; it’s even a bit of a laggard compared with the subreddit that spawned it, the also-highly-unpopular ProMaleCollective subreddit, with its 4608 subscribers.
It’s not hard to guess why the ProMale subreddits are so marginal: their inhabitants have declared war, not just on feminists and women in general, but also on the Men’s RIghts movement itself, as well as on “tradcoms” (traditional conservatives), whom the ProMale boys think of as insufficiently hateful towards feminism. They’re also critical of MGTOWs, whom they see as a bunch of losers. (I can’t really argue with them on that one.)
Aside from their harsh criticism of most of their potential allies on the antifeminist right, the ProMaleMeme crew faces yet another obstacle on the path to popularity: their memes suck. I mean, they really, really suck, even by the famously low MRA and MGTOW standards.
Indeed, the memes are so unrelentingly awful you almost think they must be the work of trolls trying to make the ProMale crowd look bad. But most of the memes posted to the subreddit, including some of the most baffling ones, have been posted by the subreddit’s three moderators. In other words, they’re serious about their unintentional ridiculousness.
Let’s start with some of the antifeminist memes.
Apparently feminists are always pulling guns on them.
The longer you spend in the subreddit, the more baffling the memes become.
I guess it’s not enough to whine like babies and try to organize boycotts of any comic book action movie with a woman in a starring role. I’m not quite certain what the meme-maker thinks that good antifeminists should do instead.
Apparently “debating” feminists is a wuss move.
They really don’t seem to want any antifeminist allies.
While they hate feminists, they’re not convinced that feminists are all a bunch of ugly losers, as MRAs often suggest.
But they have absolutely no conception of how feminist women think or act.
The ProMaleMeme subreddit seems to be home to more than a few Cosby-lovers.
The memes just get weirder and weirder.
When women what?
That’s the whole meme; I didn’t cut the bottom off or anything.
The meme’s creator explained to another ProMaler:
It’s meant to imply they’re female worshippers and they are pathetic.
Still does not compute.
But this one is even stranager:
The creator of this little masterpiece tried to explain himself in the comments:
female sex drive selects for violent men but deselects pacifist men. female sexuality also demands that men participate in status and resource hoarding wars that forces men to invade other countries, take their resources and bring it back to women to prove their worth, which usually creates violence. so, female sexuality breeds violence.
Yeah, I’m pretty sure that’s not how that works.
But hey, keep posting your bullshit for your audience of nearly none, keeping me amused.
