6 mindbending MGTOW memes to brighten your Presidents Day

It’s all a little confusing

By David Futrelle

Stretch your mind a little with these lovely memes, courtesy of some of Twitter’s most creative Men Going Their Own Way. While almost all of these images raise more questions than they answer, some are so thoroughly incomprehensible that they sort of broke my brain. If you can explain them, please do.

You might want to start with this one, which could keep you busy for some time. Maybe you could diagram it for me?

https://twitter.com/GenZMGTOW/status/962203206792093696

Speaking of diagrams, my brain shut down as soon as I even glanced at this one:

https://twitter.com/GenZMGTOW/status/962202236444004353

This one, thankfully, has many fewer words.

https://twitter.com/GenZMGTOW/status/962204320379777025

Then there’s this:

The big question I have about this one is what planet the author lives on. Here on earth, misogynists throw fits every time a woman declares herself independent. And I have yet to meet anyone other than MGTOWs who find the prospect of these guys “going their own way” even a little bit troublesome. Go your own way further!

This one made me a little queasy:

Why are the Berenstain Bears the first thing this guy thinks of when he thinks of sex? Leave the poor bears alone; they didn’t do anything to you!

In case you’re wondering if alt-right Nazithink has made any inroads into the MGTOW movement, this last graphic may provide a helpful clue:

Enjoy the rest of your Presidents Day, if you can.

Oh. Bless you, David. I love MGTOW and MRA memes. They’re just so laughably terrible.

I really want to know why the third meme has a picture of a triple cheesburger or a stack of pancakes hovering over a woman’s hand.

Oh jees, I’ve seen some bad powerpoint in my day but those diagrams are intense. It’s literally just a splurge of concepts splatted together with some arrows in, and a collection of things he imagines women think about him.

I make association diagrams like that. They’re not too uncommon in educational psychology. Arrows connecting concepts, representing the flow of processes. But that mess up there? Yeah, no. Failing grade, don’t see me after class, just, just go. Just go. That thing just screams “I have no ability to self-critique” at me.

@WWTH, I dunno, i think that as a symbol for “what every woman wants”, a cheeseburger in hand probably isn’t a terrible one. I’m sure he’s imagining they’re gold dubloons though. Women only want men who give them treasure from the Spanish Main, you know.

I’m also curious about the pancakes, and also why the miggy-toe has a black power fist on his side. I kinda don’t think that belongs there, am I wrong?

Oh, well. As long as they think they’re winning, maybe one of these days they’ll actually peel off and go.

In the “Blue Simp vs. MGTOW” one, I think the “simp” is also supposed to be Jewish. Look at the profile and tell me it doesn’t resemble that racist caricature in the last meme. Hooked nose, beard…

As always, MGTOWs…JUST GO.

Oh, I love MGTOW memes! They absolutely represent the fevered imaginary women that don’t exist IRL!

I really want to sit these guys down and gently explain that if they were some Raptured tomorrow, very few women (outside of their relatives, probably) would be wailing, gnashing their teeth, and begging for their return.

1. Okay, let’s tackle that diagram just for fun. How many traits that supposedly apply only to eeevil feminists regularly turn up in Donald Trump’s statements and behavior?

• “I’m better than you”
• “I’m entitled to all that you have”
• “I can do whatever to whomever I want”
• “They worship me”
• “They judge me”
• “I’m a Winner so I don’t have to try”
• “I can get away with anything”
• “You’re not useful so you’re disposable”
• “I’m always right so you must be wrong”

2. The Berenstain Bears meme is even creepier than David mentions. The two characters shown are school-age children. Who are also brother and sister. Used in a meme claiming that sex is all that women have to offer. Ew, ew, ew.

That diagram is a good example of the cargo cult mentality so common among the right wing. There is a superficial resemblance to the Duluth Wheel or the cycle of abuse diagrams I’ve seen, but deeper than that it’s just gibberish in a circle. The author has seen the cycle concept used, but lacks the understanding to actually replicate it, instead tossing ideas they dislike onto paper just to fit the pattern they’re mimicking.

The level of psychological projection in the diagram is absolutly astounding. Simply by observing the other memes produced by the same people, you can see the exact same message displayed. Women are useless unless its for sex; all that they have (their bodies) should belong to me; women only think about me or should only think about me and this obsess me; despite all odds I’m in the right; if a women doesn’t give me sex or isn’t pretty enough she is useless. The only changes required are: where are all the good men must be replaced by where are all the good women, feminism must be replaced by misogyny, gynocentrism by MGTOW. Rarely have I seen a meme that tells that much about its producer.

Surplus to Requirements-The Icelandic Women’s Strike was absolutely awesome. Ninety percent of Icelandic women participated! It really has a huge impact on societies when half the population stops working, even for one day. It really shuts everything down. It teaches us how vital women, and professions that are dominated by women, are to society. Perhaps we should have another? Imagine if the whole world participated!

Hmm, the second diagram can be applied to about anything you dislike… If you swap gynocentrism by androcentrism and feminism by masculinism, it is the same (maybe also swap “where all the good men…” by “where all the good persons…”). That works well with brussels sprouts too (i have always suspected there was some kind of conspiracy based on brussels sprouts. They are like emetic to me, that is a proof !).

As for those memes. They are incomprehensible as ever, especially that diagram. The last one, wanting equal pay for equal work makes women greedy, does it? Fucking arsehole. And wish the Happy Merchant meme would just die already. Six million Jews were killed in Nazi death camps in WW2 because of anti-Semitism. In Russia, between 50,000 to 200,000 Jews were killed during the pogroms of 1918–1922. My own great grand mother had to flee to the other side of the world (to Zimbabwe, then called Rhodesia) because of it. So yeah, I don’t like seeing that stuff so causally thrown around.

It’s worth noting that in terms of numbers, 90% of the women in Iceland is a population equal to Grimsby in the UK, or, in US terms, a well attended football game.

There are a whole bunch of MGTOW channels on YouTube that spew misogyny, which is against YouTube’s rules. Last month I targeted one of them by reporting 50 of the guy’s hateful videos. His misogynistic channel is still up and going strong. It’s ridiculous that YouTube facilitates the spread of hate.

So, being a MGTOW automatically results in getting a college degree (which is not possible with women around, and which you would eventually lose in a divorce to some greedy harpy anyway, so why bother) followed by a lifetime of porn and video games. Which is totally not as pathetic as having cats!

Scorning women also brings you unlimited vacations and a giant house! Which are also definitely not possible or more attainable with a partner who could bring in a second income.

Depression and loneliness are only for men in romantic relationships, not men who primarily interact with porn and video games and treat all human encounters as selfish struggles for dominance. Jail is not a possibility for men who think rape barely exists and 12 year olds are in their sexual prime.

Next they’ll be trying to lure recruits with the promose of immortal thetan superpowers.

I also like how the MGTOW in the third graphic has a red splotch on his head. I know it’s supposed to represent the red pill but it looks like a really terrible head wound.

It’s rather remarkable and illustrative what these guys have internalized as “success.” In another very sad, but very true comment from Chapo about the McDonald’s Rick and Morty Szechuan sauce incident, one of the hosts pointed out that despite driving miles to stand in line for a condiment out of a false nostalgia for something they were too young to even remember… what the hell else where these guys going to do that day? Spam the Rick and Morty subreddit about how smart they are?

I mean, if porn and video games is the definition of “success”… well, what’s the problem here? It’s like when Peter Gibbons in Office Space tells his neighbour Lawrence that if he had a lot of money, he’d do nothing all day, and Lawrence’s answer is pretty simple:

“Well you don’t only need a million dollars to do nothing, man. Just take a look at my cousin, he’s broke, don’t even do shit.”

In short, these quote-unquote “woke geniuses” are not taking these precious seconds not spent on feeee-males and using it to write the Great American Novel. They’re slackers resentful that they don’t have Bob Guccione’s life, seemingly unaware that they can be slackers without the resentment.

Next they’ll be trying to lure recruits with the promose of immortal thetan superpowers.

Being the cheeky chap that I can be, I was trolling the Peterson brigade on YouTube, who were spamming the comment section of several videos critical of their new messiah. Because his dumb book might as well be Dianetics for Failsons with “L. Ron Hubbard” scratched out in crayon. Where it’s right, it’s obvious and where it tries any kind of depth, it falls flat on its face, but since it does it with a bunch of big words, its easily-swayed audience mistakes it for something deep. It’s the new Scientology, just without the fake navy.

Oooooookay, so I will try to decipher this shit as best I can, based on what have been their recurring talking points so far.

Meme # 1- Essentially all women are feminists because they complain, presumably, because of inherent biological processes that make them irrational. The meme then goes further to shame conservative women for standing idly in regard to societal advances, achieved by feminist women, and says that by their lack of protest they are responsible for the current status quo. Their silence, in the face of the “depravity” of feminism, means consent; and so they are complicit.

Meme # 2- They just crammed as many projections as they could onto this one and it’s just garbled.

Meme # 3 – Women only think about money and they have the courts, law enforcement on their side and will get both custody and alimony without fail. The man has to bend over backwards to please the woman, something entirely impossible due to biological differences and women being amoral subhumans (or something akin to that), and this inevitably leads to depression, ulcers, suicide and monetary losses for the common man.

Meanwhile the Miggytow lives happily, not understanding any of this pain because he is far removed from women, thus he enjoys all life has to offer, including (allegedly) supermodels (not sure how that one works out).

Memes # 4 and 5 are pretty self-explanatory, since Miggytows think that people are overreacting to them going their own way; whereas what they are actually doing is staying where they are, and advocating for nazism and proprietorship of women. And well, they think the only valuable asset a woman has is sex, so inherently all women who are past the “wall” (ages 30 and above) is worthless to them.

Meme # 6 – This references “Cultural Marxism”, which is a ridiculous, anti-Semitic, conspiracy theory that states that feminism, LGBT and racial equality protests where started not out of genuine concern for oppression towards women and vulnerable groups; but as a means to destroy western culture. And apparently the people pushing for these changes are the Jews.

I imagine given MGTOW contempt for most women they likely don’t consider sex-workers women (the silhouette makes me think he is trying to convey stripper).

I get it now!

When they say they’re going their own way, they don’t mean “leave me alone, women, I’m gonna focus on being myself” at all. Like, not even in a misogynistic alpha-bro aristotle-and-pushups sort of way. “going their own way” means exactly what PUA’s talk about when they talk about alphas and game and all that garbage. Hypermasculine chauvinism, that’s all it means. There’s no “leaving women behind” at all.

It finally makes sense! I always figured they were just grumpy, reclusive misogynist assholes, but they aren’t! They’re PUAs, right down the ticket!

Ah, it’s nice when something fits into place neatly. Really should write an ontology or something.
