A Men's Human Rights Movement Graphix Xtravaganza of Joy!!1!

Actual "meme" from AVFM. I did not make it up or choose the font.

That last post was a bit, well, grim. So I thought I’d lighten the mood with some terrible, terrible memes from A Voice for Men’s Facebook page. They’re so Men’s Human Rightsy that you can practically smell the human rights wafting off of them!

Or could that be the powerful and obnoxious odor of mendacity?

Either way, enjoy! For a fun game, see how many different examples of ideas that do not actually enhance human rights you can find in the memes below! For example, I found both misogyny and transphobia! See what else you can find!

This last one is kind of my favorite. Fuck you, mom! I took out the garbage last week!

SYG explicitly excludes protecting oneself from domestic violence. Explicitly.

Really? What is the rationale for that?

and the conservatives are running around spreading it to more states because it’s good for handgun sales.

More evidence that the gun-fondlers are just itching for a reason to shoot actual people.

If Trayvon Martin had been the one with the gun, he’d be in jail, even though he had MORE reason to “stand his ground”.

I admit, there was ONE story I actually enjoyed about someone using a gun to protect themselves. It was an ancient old woman who’d been a beauty queen fifty years ago. She lived alone (possibly on a farm) in Fucking Nowhere, KY or something, and two young guys decided to break into her house. (I can’t remember if they were just planning to rob her, or something worse.) She killed neither one, but used her gun to get them to back off and stay in her barn while she called the cops.

I can understand how an old woman who needs a walker to get around might find great comfort in having some form of protection. But let’s face it, a lot of people who’re fighting for these laws aren’t old disabled women. Also, she was in rural Fucking Nowhere, where people keep guns and know how to use them as a matter of necessity.

I’d really like to live in a world where old beauty queens don’t NEED to use shotguns to protect themselves from attackers.

So…is begee capable of saying anything that isn’t complete fucking horseshit?

Also, how do these jerks still not realise that saying “any given women has no way of knowing if any given man is a rapist” is NOT the same as saying “all men are assumed to be rapists until proven otherwise”? Not all dogs are going to bite me, but you’re damn right I won’t just approach any random dog unless I think it’ll be okay, and even when I do I’ll still be on the lookout for warning signs it might not be as harmless as I first thought. And I get to choose my level of risk tolerance – there might be other people unwilling to approach dogs they don’t know at all, and that’s perfectly fine.

This is not the same as me claiming all dogs are dangerous or can’t be trusted. And for the bad-faith trolls who love to see slurs that aren’t there, I’m not calling men dogs either. It’s called an analogy.

Well, Alex, you never know. Maybe begee does recognize that the sky is blue and the earth is round.

@sparky:

I love your new MRA slogan, it’s priceless.

“Because if women take up all the rights, there won’t be any left for men”

Seriously, that’s just the whole philosophy in a nutshell. They think someone else having more means they have less. They don’t understand that equality is meant to be about lifting everyone up to the same level, not dragging people down so you can climb over them.

I’ve never managed to get a straight answer on that.

And it is just as well, really; in domestic violence situations 99% of the time it’s the abuser who has access to firearms.

But, yeah, it really does speak to the priorities of the folks writing these laws, right?

I don’t think there IS a straight answer, Howard Bannister. Just really, really creepy awful ones.

@LBT
your story reminds me of my step-grandmother teaching my wife to shoot. She told my wife that it was important for women to learn how to shoot, because you never know when you might be alone one night and have to protect your horses from venemous snakes.

For context, this was not a metaphor. She grew up on a ranch in Texas, owned her first gun at 8 years old, and until she left Texas used it only as a defense against wild animals or method of acquiring food.

That’s the big thing I think that the gun fondlers don’t get, that context matters and having a gun when you are a 45 minute drive from the nearest town is totally different than having a gun when you live in a city of several million people.
