antifeminism memes misogyny

ProMaleCollectivists continue flooding the internet with completely incomprehensible and weirdly blurry memes

I don’t know quite how they do it, but every time I take a peek into the ProMaleMemes subreddit I find yet more examples of memes that break every rule of meme-making, and then some.

I’m not sure why I keep poking my nose in ProMaleMemes. It’s not exactly a popular subreddit — a spinoff of the ProMaleCollective subreddit, itself a spinoff from the Men’s Rights subreddit, filled with dudes who dismiss most MRAs as “misandrist tradcons” (anti-male, traditional conservatives) too wedded to their reactionary tendencies to help men.

You’d think, after producing as many memes as they do they would learn at least a few basic meme-making skills. Nope. Their memes are basically an object lesson in how not to meme.

Let me give you a little tour of some of the memes on display in ProMaleMemes right now. In what follows, the bolded text is from me; the rest consists of the titles the ProMale memesters use to try to explain their memes to their colleagues. Let us catalogue theur errors meme by meme.

Putting text on a picture does not make it a meme; nor does it make the words true.

Putting text on a picture does not necessarily make it readable.

Putting text on a picture does not make it comprehensible.

Don’t assume everyone is clued into whatever obscure feud you have with Red Pillers, if that’s even who this is supposed to be referencing.

I, just, what?

Well, that’s enough incomprehensible crap for one day.

Unfortunately, I can’t look at these without visiting the reddit. They’re cropped out here.

@Trying: you aren’t missing much. Imagine all the usual misogynistic crap, really wordy, randomly pasted on pictures.

Judging by the second one, I guess radical feminists have glasses on and moderate feminists don’t.

But you have to go to the third one to realize that they’re really the same deep down. See, all feminists commit crimes ALL THE TIME.

Yeah, memes aren’t supposed to lose you in mid-sentence like that.

The real problem with these so-called ‘memes’ is that none of them are memetic.

Trying, on tge firefox browsing app I was similarly cropped until I set the page to display on desktop mode.

The scroll of truth one bothers me because either it needs to have a set-up that establishes that the person wouldn’t like that “truth” or it has to be a truth that everyones wishes weren’t true.

Come on, ProMale guys, who else is going to marry MRAs. I can’t think of a better couple than an MRA and his own reactionary tendencies.

All I’m getting from the first meme is that the meme’s creator really wants to be allowed to beat and molest kids.

@Kat – Traditional marriage: between an MRA and his reactionary tendencies 🙂

I would like to meet these pro-feminist tradcons.
