a voice for men MRA

Contest time! Design a commemorative plate for A Voice for Men! Actual prize will be awarded.

Can you fill in that white space with some crap?
Can you fill in that white space with some crap?

A couple of days ago, we did our best to figure out what was going on with the strongly vaginal imagery of A Voice for Men’s newly issued commemorative coins, designed by a “a world class jeweler and minter, widely recognized as a master artisan in his trade,” who also happens to be the father of A Voice for Men’s “Activia Director” Attila Vinczer.

The commemorative coins were such a lovely gift to all of us who enjoy laughing at MRAs that a friend of this blog suggested to me that we should return the favor by designing a commemorative plate for AVFM. This generous soul also pledged to provide a prize for the winner: an authentic “male tears” coffee mug.

So let’s see what you’ve got! You can use the carefully prepared commemorative plate template I pasted in above, or make one of your own. The more perplexing, the better!

If you need some inspiration, let me remind you again what the official AVFM commemorative coin looks like:

I’m sorry. That’s not AVFM’s commemorative coin. That is actually a guinea pig wearing glasses. Let me try again:

82028e3d8085bdd970681eacfce72967Crap. That’s actually a nineteenth-century illustration depicting the Galvanic Reanimation of the Dead. Here we go again:

What is that I don’t even.

Ok,ok, here’s the damn coin:

avfmcoin

Also, I am being told that the younger Vinczer is not actually AVFM’s “Activia Director.” He is actually the site’s “Minister of Greek Yogurt.”

Am I late to the show?

Inspired by Paul telling his followers to live off of ramen for the good of men and boys everywhere.

All of these are hilarious! My favorites so far are the PR one and the JFK one.

Here’s my plate. It echoes the vaguely obscene/mammalian/baffling theme of the coin and is a perfect peacocking accessory for a Credenza Going Its Own Way.

From Afar, your plate reminded me of the plight of oppressed ramen. It’s super cheap because society sees it as disposable. Icky poor people eat it. It gets no hb10s eating it. Unfair!

I’m going to start a new pasta rights movement. The website for the RPRM will of course be called A Voice For Ramen.

Ramens are pastas too!

RPRM 2014-2020

2020 is when the first international conference of ramen issues will be held.

My vote goes to the ‘accomplishments’ one, only because it includes my favourite picture of all time: the ‘Saddest Little Rally'(TM)

I showed the bf the link to the coins in all their glory (it’s a do not link) and he was just as flabbergasted, if not more so, about the presentation than the actual coin.
“Why’s it on that weird rock, which is itself on the ground? Why is the presentation box so shabby? I can’t stop looking at the crappy holes in the presentation boxes!” etc.

@buttercup q. skullpants — that one takes the cake (plate). the obscurity of it all is only rivaled by our inspirational coin.

@kittehserf — never inappropriate to bring up harrison if you ask me.

these plates are all fabulous! i want the full collection. they will look fabulous on my hutch 😀

Also, all the plates are awesome. Who will get the “male tears” mug? It will be a tough decision for the kittens and ferrets to make.

@fromafar and chimisaur – It’s a Carolina sphinx moth, one of the 2007 winners of the Oklahoma Ugly Bug contest:

http://www.uglybug.org/07dex.shtml

Moths symbolize misandry, because the feeeeeemales emit pheromones and in response, the males burn themselves to a crisp against the porch light.

@fauxmy – We could have quite the dinner party with these plates. They’d offset the sourness of the grapes quite nicely.

My favorite plates are the ones where the text goes off the plate, echoing the design skills seen on their website and evoking an angry conversation with the plate printers (“I have to keep all the text and graphics within the dotted lines? MISANDRY!”)

I am going to submit one (or several) when I get home tonight.

Also, I am kinda squicked by the RIP Paul Elam one. Feels a bit like wishing him dead. I would rather not go there. About the worst thing I wish him is self-awareness.

@opium

Hmm, didn’t mean it that way. More like he tries to absorb the victimhood of all men ever, as if the suffering of men who died in wars or committed suicide somehow makes him oppressed.

I’m not too keen on the RIP Paul Elam, either. I like the rest (the schnauzer is pretty rad), but that part could use a quick edit – RIP Male “Privelege” or something might work without making it seem like we want to dance on someone’s grave.

An excellent use of resouces, he definitely is creating a legacy as a human rights activist petty man-child.

Of course if he exposes a darker side of David I’ll no longer support WHTM. If you’re in the Association of Kitten Kicking Enthusiasts we’re done Futrelle. Those kitty kickers are the worst.

I assume that the proceeds from selling the AVFM coins will go to hiring this PI to expose David’s…I don’t know, love of cats?

Good thing they’ve sold six of them! PI’s don’t come cheap!

Ain’t that the truth! At least they’re putting their money to a worthy cause, like doxxing and harassing a critic. Be terrible if they had to spend that cash on actually helping men.

Really, I hope they are able to sell some more coins. They got a freebie, doxxing Bucky Turco and the teacher from Detroit, but with a potential law suit against the Double Tree AND having to hire a PI to doxx David, the funds must be running low.

Maybe it is time for another fund raiser!

That’s all it is. They want him to know they can find him, just like stalkers and abusers do.

Such activism! So human rights! Much integrity!

When I was adding the tear to my plate design (the beaver in a fedora with the equally appropriate JFK quote) I noticed that the tear/raindrop/whatever-the-fuck-it-is is upside down and somehow defying gravity – So maybe it’s not a beaver in a puddle, maybe it’s a vagina projectile squirting at the deft touch of the disembodied hand…. That’s my new interpretation (as a world class plate-artist) of the design of a fellow world class coin-artist.

Superb thread, this – what talented people you all are! Hard to choose (though I’m not keen on the RIP Paul text – not sure he needs to increase his sense of appropriated victimhood (while telling his victims, er, supporters, to live off noodles and that their sufferings are meaningless if they don’t chip in more than they can afford).

@ brooked – I believe what Nietzche originally said was “Stare too long into the abyss and sooner or later you see a long-haired hamster staring back at you. Through chunky spectacle frames”.

You won’t find that in the official editions of Nietzche’s work, but Atilla Vinczer’s own Private Investigator told me it was true.

I’m not going to draw the image, as it really would be NSFW and a bunch of other places as well, but I think the perfect AVfM plate would simply have a goatse in the middle. The theme then dovetails nicely with the coin.
