Even more gloriously incomprehensible memes from A Voice for Men's most prolific meme-maker

That doesn't even make a tiny bit of sense.
That doesn’t even make a tiny bit of sense.

The unquestioned king of A Voice for Men’s crew of meme-makers is the mysterious fellow known only as John Galt. Galt, whose contributions are often chosen as AVFM’s “meme of the week” and posted to AVFM’s Facebook page, is truly the meme-maker AVFM deserves — a graphic designer whose graphically challenged photoshopped masterpieces are as baffling as they are offensive.

I highlighted several of his, er, designs in my recent post on Inexplicable AVFM Memes. Today, I’d like to delve further into the photoshop disasters that fill his own Facebook page, some of them official AVFM memes and others posted under his own fake name.

But first, a little introduction to Mr. Galt, as found on his blog.

I live and work in the UK, am a physically fit man in his mid thirties currently studying Computer Science and Mathematics. … I, like most men I know have dated on and off for the past 20 years or so and from my experiences I have come to realize as, no doubt many of you have that there is a deep sickness in our society in regards to how men are treated. …

With a 50 billion dollar divorce industry, sex sold as some sort of priceless resource and victim hood sold to a nanny state as the only valid form of currency it is evident that Men must protect their independence and freedom more vigilantly than ever.

The price, for failing to see what is essentially a fairy tale lie is higher than it has ever been. That price is paid to governments and businesses who profit from the misery of destroyed families, men and women with tax rates and laws that only ever increase. It is paid to greedy women and feminists who demand one sided equality while forcing men to shoulder responsibilities with none of the inherent rights associated with

Sorry, I nodded off for a second.

These fascist lies permeate everywhere from the destruction of Masculine Roles to the ignorance of sex differences in medic

Oh fucking hell he goes on like this for several hundred more words. You can go read it if you like.

Anyway, he ends with a question:

What are you going to do about it?.

Longtime readers of this blog will no doubt notice that Mr. Galt ends his sentence with a new variation on the famous MRA two-dot ellipsis, which I think we can call the Galtian MRA Question Period.

Galt has answered his own Question Period with an ever-growing collection of terrible, terrible memes. So let’s take a look!

There’s this inexplicable homage to a 24-year-old song by MC Hammer.

"It" hate your guts?
“It” hate your guts? And why is she on a scooter?

And this conspiratorial take on “the pill.”

Huh. Yet Galt thinks a male pill WILL bring sexual liberation ... to men.
Huh. Yet Galt thinks a male pill WILL bring sexual liberation … to men.

Apparently feminism was writing nursery rhymes in the early 19th century:

What does this soft-porn pic have to do with feminism or nursery rhymes?
What does this soft-porn pic have to do with feminism or nursery rhymes?

Hey ladies! Get on the feminist gravy train!

One ... MILLION dollars!
One … MILLION dollars!

Apparently feminists want everyone to live in tents, which supposedly look like … vaginas?

"Engenuity?" Apparently spellchecking is for manginas.
“Enginuity?” Apparently spellchecking is for manginas.

Apparently the true cause of erectile dysfunction is … nagging?

Er, why did you use a picture of a Viagra float at a Pride Parade?
Er, this meme is aimed at women. So why did you use a picture of a Viagra float at a Pride Parade?

I’m not sure what’s the most offensive thing about this one — the comparision of feminism to a nuclear weapon or Mr. Galt’s egregious typo.

There are only [] words in this poster. And one of them is misspelled.
There are only 13 words in this poster. And one of them is misspelled.
Your interpretation of this next one is as good as mine, though in a comment on Facebook Mr. Galt explains “yes it does refer to the sexuality between men and women. Specifically sexual aggression – which of course is for all judicial purposes is essentially illegal nowadays, at least for men.

Ok, then.
Ok, then.

Honestly, I don’t think Mr. Galt needs a Men’s Rights movement to solve his problems. I think he might just need to hire a dominatrix. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

I’ve just scratched the surface of Mr. Galt’s graphic work. I may have to return to him in a future post.

What planet do you live on where anyone at all says that drinking is good for the baby?

I guess they operate on very, very simple patterns.

One of them seems to be: “people will think anything a woman does is good and anything a man does is bad because misandry”.

Also known as: “reverse genders for instant CHECKMATE”

then run around screaming about how evil feminists are telling pregnant women to drink lots and lots of booze because it’s good for the baby.

And then, hordes of them will show up right here to demand we confess our evilness since our misandrist boozapalooza has been uncovered.

Is it just me, or does US Grant look disapproving/sceptical of the twaddle underneath his picture?

If you look closely, it’s not a real million dollar bill; it’s the front of a religious tract that you’re supposed to leave in restaurants in lieu of a tip. Grant is showing his disapproval of you, the server, because you were working at a restaurant at brunchtime on Sunday, which means you’re a Sabbath-breaker.

Anyway, that explains why feminist organizations have been getting these at the rate of 4/year. Given the current makeup of Congress that’s about all they can expect.

(The original tract is here).

I seriously think that Galt just browses through stock photos of attractive women, then occasionally finds one that inspires some MRA screed and slaps some text onto it. There is no way these things have any planning or thought put into them.

Bina

Ok. WTF. There is a meme on Galt’s blog titled “realWoman.” It is white text on a black background, headed “A Real Woman” followed by a huge list descriptions like “is honest” or “spends time with her kids,” some of which are references to MRA talking points (“does not falsely accuse a man of rape or abuse”), some of which could be found in the parody poster I expected this to be (“minds her manners,” “supports her man,” “takes care of her appearance”).

The list is ended with “is able to read this without feeling offended.” So I’m guess not many woman are real, because some of the contents are pretty hideous.

The real kicker, though, is the text below the list. Are you sitting down? Go find a place to sit down, I’ll wait.

You good? Are you sure? Make sure you aren’t drinking any liquids when you read this next part. Trust me on this one.

All set? Comfy? Alright, brace yourself.

The last bit of text:

“People grow and learn together… they are not a laundry list of your requirements…”

There is only one true response to this meme. It is another meme:

“they stab it with their steely knives but they just can’t kill the beast”?

I dunno, “…the pill was invented to make you (women) employable…” is really hurting my head. It says so much about certain types of conservatives and MRAs. I mean, that was intended for women to read, and cause a type of mindfuck, right? I always knew they were paranoid about women surpassing them in the workplace, but they made it so obviously clear. The idea that there are men out there in meatspace who would rather keep all women pregnant all the time rather then compete with them as equals is horrifying — and so typical at the same time. They’re confirming all of our accusations on purpose, using their own free will.

Oh, but of COURSE the Pill was invented to make us more employable. Because nobody hired women (let alone for cheap-cheap-cheap) before it. Or fired us for getting married and/or preggers, thus keeping those female wage-earners in “their” place (read: CHEAP).

That’s it, isn’t it…he hates sexy women because they aren’t sexing HIM. Even though he is “physically fit”, he still repulses all his dates with the endless stream of incomprehensible drivel that comes drooling out his lips. And so he takes it out on them the only way he knows how: with more incomprehensible drivel, this time in graphic form. And in which sexy ladies and the Pill (which has enabled them to get sexy with everyone but him) figure prominently and always in a punitive, ridiculous and demonstrably false context.

So, they resent women for not being fiscally dependent on them and holding down jobs of their own and they resent having to take care of those lazy, non-working, Bon Bon eating women? Am I getting this right?

By all rights Ayn Rand should have faded into the obscurity of history. Literally the only reason she’s still brought up is because her “philosophy” appeals to the rich and powerful. “Hey, powerful people! Don’t you hate it when others think you should be responsible and altruistic and use your wealth for the greater good? Well, I’m totes a philosopher, and I say doing whatever you want is the most moral thing!”

A lot of these images (juxtaposed with his self-description) scream aggrieved entitlement. Brackets inferred, here’s what I got:

I AM IN MY 30s AND CURRENTLY SEEKING A BACHELOR’S DEGREE. WOMEN [have the degree I’m seeking and also] HAVE SAFER AND BETTER-PAYING JOBS THAN I DO. THIS IS OPPRESSION. WOMEN IN MY JOBS ARE FAKERS WITHOUT TALENT AND SHOULD BE TAKING CARE OF ME. MEN LIKE ME DESERVE THEIR JOBS [and scholarships and performance-enhancing contraceptives]. FEMINAZIS STOLE OUR ICE CREAM.

The fact that he calls himself John Galt…well, “enhances” that image.

That all being said, and even putting how poorly made and silly most of these images are…that pill one is a level of misogyny you just don’t see that often. (The pill was designed to make women just as employable as men and had nothing to do with sex! AND [even if that were true] THAT’S A BAD THING. IT’S NOT FAIR)

Jenny (@dontgiveah00t)

@Master of the Boot –

How the fuck does keeping women financially dependent on men benefit men in any way? How does equal pay for equal work threaten men so much? What the fuck are these idiotic memes and who designed them?

I think it’s because despite their complaints about having to pay for women, they need for that to be true. Women competent enough to be bosses or equals in the workplace inherently threaten their idea that they’re superior and women are barely children in comparison. In order to survive, places like AVFM need the resentment of more than just men who hate paying child support or who feel like they’ve been cheated out of their kids with loopholes (like that father in Liar, Liar). They also need the resentment of men who hate having women enter their field because it will lower the prestige and/or pay rate, or who hate having a woman outperform them in the workplace. They need to feel like a) they’re actually superior and women really are too inferior to do their job as well and for the same pay rate, and also b) that they’re actually oppressed for their very superiority by a corrupt, lazy potion of humanity, in this case women, that wants to live off their hard work for nothing (a very Ayn Randian idea).
