Truly Scary Halloween Costume: Sexy Men’s Rights Activist

No Friendzoning!
No Friendzoning!

If you’re still looking for last-minute Halloween costumes — play along with me here, huh? — might I suggest what might possibly be the scariest one of all? Dress up like a (gasp!) Men’s Rights Activist, like the fellow above, a real-life MRA cosplayer I found on STFU Assholes.

If you’re looking for more MRA costume ideas, I suggest perusing the pictures here. (Warning: these are actual MRAs.)

Is it wrong that this idea made me laugh so hard I snorted tequila through my nose?

That costume is awesome, but he needs to practise his rage-face in case a woman speaks to him.

Scare your friends this Halloween with the prospect of loud, slurred, and possibly race-baiting rants about individual liberties and the role of the state.

That’s even scarier than your pumpkin.

Happy Halloween, everyone.

I’m on my way out to distribute kitty treats to the neighbourhood cats!

Now that’s a Halloween idea I like! 🙂

It’s funny: I loathe Halloween here. It’s a recent import, entirely about commercialism, and has no connection to Australian life at all. But I was in small-town US during Halloween a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it – lots of people were involved, there was a big carved pumpkin display, all the houses were decorated. It belonged there. Here? Fake, fake, fake.

My friend convinced their housemate to dress as an MRA for halloween. Badges saying “I <3 Dawkins", crossed out friendzone and "What about the men", and a fedora (sorry fedora-fans!).

I managed to avoid trick or treaters all night, which is good because all we had in was rat food and lentils. But my mum reminded me that last halloween, when we had TinyFantastic, I managed to a) forget to buy a pumpkin until 7pm on halloween and b) convince her that trick or treating was illegal in my local area so we didn't have to go out. Bad sister.

Huh. I went out after work to buy some candy for the kiddies, and not a single one came by. And the weather is lovely, no snow and above zero. I wonder what happened.

“If you weren’t ashamed about your bodies or your social lives, its hard to see why you all would sit here and cry about people who are clearly enjoying their lives more than you.” Or so I’ve heard.

Making fun of MRAs is pushing an agenda? Ok…

In any case, they deserve to be mocked and despised.

Instead of an MRA costume, why not a PUA one? Grab a fur coat, a big furry top hat, a pair of binoculars, an eyepatch and a walking staff tipped with a plastic skull. Scrawl a big red pair of lips on your neck. Go out and swagger around shouting lame come-on lines at every woman you pass.

Well, tonight was fun. Lots of candy, lots of little hands in it, a baby bumble bee, and I got offered a baby.

That last one is a first! (Kid was crying, adult was frustrated cuz older siblings weren’t remotely done and baby was cranky)

Excellent distraction from my hearing in the morning, cuz my hearing is in the morning *hides under the bed*

Argenti, I hope the hearing goes well. Let us know what, if anything, we can do to help.

Argenti, I hope that goes well. Glad you got to share candy with some wee kiddies to take your mind off it. (We only had 3 groups of kids plus some friends over here so I am eating all the candy and getting a headache.)

I can’t make out the top line of the poster. In term of candy dispensing, I did a “get off of my lawn” by going out to dinner and then keeping my lights off when I did get back home. I love the little kids (under the age of about 7) in costumes. I don’t mind those that are tweens either. It is the older ones that bug the hell out of me especially if they don’t make an effort with a costume. My comment to the latter is “Oh, you came dressed as a teenager”

CassandraSays

The only older kids I saw were escorting their younger siblings (and not asking for candy). We seem to have evolved a good system here where porch light on = Trick or Treat and porch light off = don’t bug the people in this house, even if their lights are on.

(I heard multiple sets of parents explaining this to the wee ones.)

SittieKitty

we almost never get kids, we didn’t even buy candy this year and had no one ring our door, which is weird because we’re a pretty-kid heavy neighbourhood, but most of them drive out of the neighbourhood.

and that’s exactly what we’re taught too CassandraSays

Argenti, I hope your hearing goes well, ::offers virtual hugs and positive thoughts::

Ditto the good luck, Argenti!

Before I left the house tonight, I encountered the most polite group of trick-or-treaters I’ve ever had. Instead of “Trick or treat,” they said “Happy Halloween!” And they all remembered their “Thank you”s. The oldest one wasn’t wearing a costume, but since he seemed to be escorting his younger siblings, I didn’t begrudge him some candy.

We had several groups of kids. The first were a witch and a slasher killer.

There was either a scary clown or a Juggalo in there at one point.

And the last group was a pair of sisters, the older about 7 or 8, the younger about 3 or 4. They came dressed as Mickey & Minnie. When encouraged to say “Trick or treat!” by their parents, the older dutifully repeated it, but the younger managed “Teet teet!,” grabbed a fun-sized Snickers, and bolted.

We don’t have a porch light. I left the front door open; fortunately it was a mild night.

A storm blew through after midnight and our power went out for an hour between 2 and 3.

I had to put a sign up about no candy and don’t knock on the glass of the ancient front door (scares me and the cats when people do that). People in my neighborhood ignore the porch light, AKA the treat signal, but the sign worked this year.

We need Men’s Rights because of the widespread use of shaming tactics against men as illustrated by the image above.

Disagree Diz (hope youre not being sarcastic) I love the MRA costume! I had a friend go dressed as an Occupy zealot. He dressed shirtless with shower curtain wrapped around him, lol!

MRA is not a synonym for man. MRAs deserve to be shamed for the awful things they believe and do.

I adhered to the local Halloween (well, it’s day of the dead really) custom and visited my grandparents graves with my mom today, bringing fresh flowers and grave candles/lanterns.

And…well my family members also have the lovely tradition of trying to outdo one another with these things. So this year’s winner in the size category (biggest grave lantern) is my mom, in the quantity category (most candles) my uncle, and in the flower arrangement category my cousin (my aunt’s daughter). Yeah. My family is weird. ^^;

Nope. It’s not that kind of “holiday” here (here being Hungary)… it’s traditionally quiet and melancholic day for remembrance (no parties, no candy, etc.). Just my family makes it a competition for some odd reason. ^^;

MRA is not a synonym for man. MRAs deserve to be shamed for the awful things they believe and do.

Quite a subjective notion. I could say the same thing about feminists. Outside of the whole feminist/MRA debate, shaming tactics are used routinely by women against men. That image above is a part of a general trend to use shaming as a means of getting men to defer to the desires and expectations of women.

Practically every “real man” meme defines a “real man” based on how he treats and what he does for women. Practically every “real woman” meme defines what a “real woman” does for herself and justifies her current condition (real women have curves).

The image above utilizes the importance of social status to men to try and shame MRAs. What’s next?: “I need masculism because I live in my mother’s basement”? “I need masculism because I have a small penis”? “I need masculism because I can’t get a date”?

Moma Sita

So its Hungarian tradition as well?

Malitia

The visiting graves/cemeteries, bringing flowers and the candles: Yes. Is a Hungarian tradition too.

Making a competition out of it: No. That’s just my family. ^^; (I think it’s part of the sibling rivalry between my mom and aunt and uncles.)
