Signal Boost: Important Men’s Rights Activism Opportunity (involves firemen)

Please help.
Activism opportunity!

I found this on the Men’s Rights subreddit today. PLEASE HELP!

In a lucky coincidence I am also looking for some pictures:

  • A librarian with an Animal Rights sign
  • An EMT with a “No Blood for Oil” sign
  • A cloak room attendant with a “Make Love Not War” sign
  • An orthodontist with an “I Like Ike” sign
  • A bunny pushing a tiny shopping cart full of carrots

Oh wait, I already have that last one. Never mind.

10:1 says that the first images given are of a firefighter holding a sign that’s been photoshopped to read like a traditional “father’s rights” blather.

Ah, Dave. What would we do w/o you.

Awww bunny! Wait, what were we talking about again?

Oh yeah. I wonder what the poster’s angle is with such a specific pic request?

Myriad – it is certain to be an obtuse angle.

So I had this comment about something, but then I saw a bunny pushing a tiny shopping cart filled with carrots and CUTE!

So now I have no idea what I was going to post, or what it was about.

But that’s okay, because bunny pushing a tiny shopping cart filled with carrots.

… these guys do know that firefighters aren’t even allowed to do things like visit restaurants with a bar section while wearing recognizable department memorabilia or clothing? Or get a reprimand from their chief?

Like, no firefighter I know of would risk such a thing. I’m sure there might be one somewhere, but none of the ones I know would:

a) risk a reprimand and an investigation for affiliating themselves with a group known for misogyny and harassment (and departments usually have a zero tolerance policy for harassment)

or

b) affiliate themselves with a group known for misogyny and harassment in the first place, because they’re decent people!

It’s probably going to be photoshopped.

Also, can’t help with the librarian picture, but maybe this will suffice?

I’m assuming that the sign in the picture would be on fire, and the firefighter would be dousing it with a firehose?

I was promised firemen. I see no such thing.

Oh fireman. I read that as firearm….which made slightly more sense….I had this image of a gun with a sign Father’s Rights taped to the side.

@contrapangloss: yeah, I’m not sure if they have the equivalent of the Hatch Act, but you’d think political activity while in uniform would be frowned upon.

I was feeling a bit off today (not a bad mood, just… wasn’t putting my best foot forward in everything I was doing), but this made me feel MUUUUCH better.

I’m enjoying the alternate universe in which that tiny red shopping cart exists, particularly since pigs there know how to do St Patty’s Day right.

Eh, there seems to be a stock photo for everything and anything. It’s like Rule 34.

Anyway, fathers’ rights activism seems to go better with the kind of mindset that just wants to see the world burn.

OT, but Theodore Beale wrote a post a couple of days ago illustrating female entitlement. His source? An article from The Onion:

Here’s the link to The Onion article:

Sad thing is his commenters aren’t letting the fact this story is completely made up get in the way of their argument.

Fun fact for all of you. 95% of firefighters are men. That means when someone’s house is on fire it’s nearly always a team full of men who risk their lives to put the fire out and save anyone inside. They get no thanks from feminists of course.

the 4th survivor: Umm… You do realize that fellow thread member Contrapangloss is a young lady currently training to be a firefighter, right? (She’s also a close friend of mine and an all around fantastic person)

But I don’t think “WOMANZ DON’T FIREFIGHT!” is gonna work here. Just FYI.

(Sorry if you didn’t want to get pulled into drama Contrapangloss. 🙁 I felt the need to defend your EMT and Firefighting honor).

Surely straw feminists have more reason to be grateful to firefighters, what with straw being so flammable?

Ah yes, sn0rkmaiden, the old trick of “I know it’s fake, but it’s also true”. These people never learn, and never abandon any position, no matter how ridiculous they may seem.

…says the guy who apparently doesn’t know the difference between “no thanks” and “many thanks”.

Not to mention the fact that women have been trying to get into firefighting for ages, but are being discouraged by sexist attitudes and policies, but why let facts get in the way of a good argument?

sn0rkmaiden

@ the 4th Survivor,

you are quite mistaken. I am a feminist and I make it my duty to regularly stand outside burning buildings and personally thank each fire fighter for their selfless bravery. Sometimes I take cupcakes. The scene sometimes plays out a bit like this:

@childrenofthebroccoli

That sounds like an excuse to me. I think women just aren’t interested. Which I have no problem with by the way. I just get sick of hearing feminists moan about male privilege when they apparently have no problem with male burden.
