ShitRedditSays has an Art Attack

Oh, ShitRedditSays! Not only are SRSers  fighting the good fight against bigotry and assyness and general shitlordery on Reddit, but they also manage to come up with some of the best and most hilarious faux-propaganda graphics you’re likely to run across online, many of which are gathered together on the SRS FArtistry tumblr blog.

SRS being a bit of a circlejerk, the graphics are mainly designed to amuse other SRSers, and are full of in-jokes and references to the ridiculous reputation SRS has amongst Redditors at large as being the home to humorless man-hating Dworkinite feminazis eager to oppress helpless Straight White Males. By pelting them with dildoes.

Here, for example, is a lovely drawing illustrating how many Redditors actually see the unending battle between SRS (represented here by surly angels armed with purple dildoes) and the upstanding free-speech defenders of Reddit.

Other SRS graphics play on old propaganda tropes:

Still others are just excuses to make in-jokes. (For some reason, SRSers like to refer to dogs as “dags.”)

It’s interesting to see the contrast between SRS FArt and the, er, art generated by MRAs online. Here, for example, is a graphic taken from the Artistry Against Misandry site, a collection of “art” and “music” and even “poetry” from angry, art-, music- and poetry-challenged MRAs. AAM is heavily promoted on A Voice for Men; heck, Paul Elam recently sent them $100 of his own (supporters’) money to fight the (allegedly) good fight.

This hilarious piece of WTFery, if you haven’t figured it out already, is evidently supposed to be a picture of me. Or possibly Michael Moore. Whoever it’s supposed to be, I cackled with glee when I first saw it yesterday. (For future reference, I don’t own either a baseball cap or that particular kind of flogger.)

I will be exploring the vast artistic richness (sarcasm) of Artistry Against Misandry in several upcoming posts.

And after that I will highlight some of the magnificent art (not sarcasm) produced by some of Man Boobz’ own.

In the meantime, enjoy this one last bit of SRS FArtistry, which might be suitable for desktop wallpaper:

  1. Argenti: welcome to modern Christianity?

    No. It’s a strain of vocal christianity, but it’s not the summa of modern christianity.

    “love the sinner hate the sin”…they fail in general”

    Most people do. It’s why that’s bad theology.

    He fixes your typoes because he pretends his typing is one of the reasons we hate men. Because lots of us make typing mistakes, and he’s been singled out for having atrocious grammar which makes his points unintelligible. This is, of course, a case of, “woman good, men bad”, according to him,

  2. Maybe it’s because I just reread Carrie, but when I try to imagine NWO’s version of Christianity all I can picture is Margaret White. She also hated women and their bodies and well, everything really.

    And now the mental image of NWO shouting “THEY’RE ALL GONNA LAUGH AT YOU” at some eight year olds on their way to the beach will not leave my mind.

    Pecunium — “It’s a strain of vocal christianity, but it’s not the summa of modern christianity.” — fair enough, it’s the strain I was raised in and ran from, so I’m admittedly very biased here. Regarding the typos/grammar, I’ll not repeat what I said and just link. “he’s been singled out for having atrocious grammar which makes his points unintelligible” basically sums it up.

    Opinion on typoes versus typos? My brain says typoes, my spell check says typos >.<

    lauralot89 — it's not just you, but I read Carrie at like 13 and that's a bit young for that book. (My mother was sick of me begging for access to her Stephen King collection.)

    Myoo — "It’s like the old saying “old dogs can’t learn new tricks”, only in nwoslave’s case it’s more like “dogs can’t learn tricks”." …but…but…old dogs can learn new tricks, I’ve taught ones! Granted the old dog was an easy going shepard with younger dogs to watch, but it worked!

  4. Teaching hate is the rule, not the exception, when it comes to Christianity. There are individual exceptions (and to some small scale, other exceptions).

  5. @Argenti Aertheri

    Myoo — “It’s like the old saying “old dogs can’t learn new tricks”, only in nwoslave’s case it’s more like “dogs can’t learn tricks”.” …but…but…old dogs can learn new tricks, I’ve taught ones! Granted the old dog was an easy going shepard with younger dogs to watch, but it worked!

    Oh, I know old dogs can learn tricks, it’s just a saying, and only a partially correct one at best. While people (and dogs, I guess) might have some difficulty changing the habits they’ve been taught growing up, it’s quite possible to do so. I just thought it applied to nwoslave’s view of the world particularly well.

  6. Argenti Aertheri

    Myoo — I gathered as much, I was further mocking NWO. I probably should’ve mentioned I realize it’s just a saying, but I’d just woken up and my brain was still scrambled. And since most sane people don’t get wtf I mean with that, pretend it’s the same as “need coffee…now…”

  7. @Argenti
    Yeah, I figured you were only joking, but I suffer from a terrible case of did-I-express-myself-correctly-itis, and I find it preferable to clarify what I mean in case of doubt. I wasn’t offended or anything.

  8. Argenti Aertheri

    “I suffer from a terrible case of did-I-express-myself-correctly-itis” — so do I apparently!

  9. fuckyoubitch

    Well for a feminist you match your own deffinition of an MRA, a fat ugly loser living with his mother

  10. Orly? And where has anyone ever defined an MRA like that here?

  11. awww, does someone need his blankie and bottle?
