More Amazing MisogynArtistry from deviantART

effcts_of_feminism_by_alexlartwork22-d5ft932

Here — above and below – are a couple of amazing works of Men’s Rightsy propaganda I missed in my survey of deviantART yesterday, both from a fellow calling himself alexlartwork22. And, yes, they both seem to be meant completely seriously.

you can lose a lot of money chasing women but you'll never lose women chasing money

Thanks, Tulgey Logger and Cloudiah for finding these!  Is anyone else reminded of Chick Tracts here? The crude drawing, the melodrama, the excessive word balloons?

My post yesterday inspired (or at least provided the excuse for) rather a lot of comments, many of them rebutting a Men’s Rightsy fellow calling himself Good. Below, a graphic from Katz memorializing one of Good’s more, er, memorable pronouncements.

If men dominate the world, why is that the case when men and women are equal in numbers?

  1. wow thread.

    my biggest wtf was the gifts thing…

    Sometimes I feel like I’m the only person in the whole entire world who thinks gifts are supposed to be …ya know… gifts? Not purchases, not obligations, not contracts, just free unobligatory I-did-it-because-it-feels-good-to-see-you-smile-and-I-expect-nothing-in-return things to make you happy… Honestly. I’ve never had a problem not feeling obligated when someone gives me something as a gift, when I feel like I have to give something in return I recognise that’s because I want to give something, not because I’m being pressured into reciprocation. Emotional bullying, I’m terrible with on that score, I’m very easily guilted/shamed into things, but gifts? Gifts are wonderful free I love you things.

    I have nothing to add to Bad but to echo how pathetic everyone else has already mentioned he is.

    I have nothing to add to anything else either.

  2. (He probably left the price tags on, too, and was pissed off that women weren’t swept off their feet by his $12 bunch of flowers and discounted candy.)

  3. Okay, maybe I was being an art snob, but really, most of it is crap.

  4. My pet alternate interpretation is that the guy became a feminist. Now he never has to make obligatory gender-related empty gestures again!

  5. But chocolate is never an empty gesture! Even when it’s “stop your ass over here on your way home from work, I have three dozen cookies” (yes, I really did that…too much butter, but I think I worked out the ideal ratios)

    On topic…what’s the current topic? XD

    Gifts…I’m weird. It is not easy to gain my trust, and I am not inclined to accept gifts until you do (well, ones more valuable than “you want half of this [food item]?”)…even once I do, I want to repay the favor cuz aw, you bought me stuff!

    Pecunium, seriously, please come up with something I can do, I know you’re not going to let me spend money, but I’m handy and oh boy do I have flowerpots to spare if you need some! Like, normally I’d do surprise booze, but you have such a collection already. And baked goods wouldn’t travel well…and my offer to clean failed cuz she’s trying to get the point across that y’all can help clean and ARGH! OOOH, I know! You have an iThing that needs a cover for its cover? Steampunk kilt pin? I could make one that’d look smashing on your black kilt…

    …I am so off topic >.<

  6. What about knitting him something, Argenti? A tam, perhaps, if he wears them?

  7. Yeah, I don’t necessarily like accepting gifts that are really expensive, but I also don’t think someone should call anything they give me a gift if they’re expecting shit from me. If they want something back, they need to communicate that. It’s like sometimes I feel like I’m the only person who understands that the word altruism means doing something for someone else without expecting any benefit to yourself.

  8. Oh, deviantart MRAs…the first MRA I ever came across was on deviantart. That loqutor guy. Some notable friends of his are lordmep http://lordmep.deviantart.com/gallery/ and matthew-lane http://matthew-lane.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=/ There were others, but most of them got banned.

  9. To toot my own horn, in a piece that’s really a paean to community: Manboobz got a write up (and I was one of the people mentioned by name, along with Cliff and Ami).

    How I learned to feed the trolls, until they burst

  10. Alex: Oh man, we were talking about that second guy a little while ago and how he may be the worst artist in the history of everything! The first one is rather wonderful too, in the classic MRA “I made a pie chart! I’m an artist!” way.

  11. Argenti Aertheri

    “What about knitting him something, Argenti? A tam, perhaps, if he wears them?”

    If I could knit that might be an option! Most other crafts and arts and such are on the table though.

    Of course, note his utter lack of reply to that question.

    Hey, how about a lace window screen for the orchids? I rigged one for my more delicate plants, but don’t need it anymore. I could put it in a proper frame and bring it?

  12. A-ha!

    That link to the Manboobz write-up that Pecunium posted answered a question that was boiling at the back of my mind: how dishonest is Good, anyway?

    Hey, if Good shows up, his link to that massive screed denouncing feminism?

    It included this quote by Andrea Dworkin: “Heterosexual intercourse is the pure, formalized expression of contempt for women’s bodies.”

    Except that, as David cataloged here… DWORKIN NEVER SAID THAT.

    Good, your link to this fabulous ‘the death of feminism’ article lied from the get-go. It attributes things to people that they never said. IT IS AS THOROUGHLY DISHONEST AS YOU ARE.

    Imagine that.

  13. Argenti – oh, I thought you did knitting, my mistake. You do some sort of fabric/yarn craft, don’t you? I thought you’d worked with the yarn Pecunium spins.

  14. Wow, I just came across this alex creeper while browsing for African-themed art on DA. Here’s his latest sexist rant:

    http://alexlartwork22.deviantart.com/art/What-R-Men-Good-4-419807663

    I love how he literally admits to advocating for patriarchy in this comic. He goes beyond the usual Men’s Rights Activist in his blatancy.
