It’s meme time again, in which I present a number of Men’s Rights memes I’ve found recently and mock the shit out of them. I will also be providing rudimentary fact-checks for some of them.
So let’s get right to it. The first couple of memes are attempts to prove that feminists are hypocrites who hold contradictory beliefs on an assortment of topics.
Er, femininsts have also pushed hard for paid paternity leaves and would be thrilled if men involved themselves more in child care.
Feminists don’t believe that women can’t be abusive; they believe that they are less likely to be abusers than men — because they are, at least when it comes to the severe sorts of abuse that land women in hospitals for domestic violence at much higher rates than men.
As for combat, well, women do tend on average to be smaller than men, but by this logic short men should also be kept out of the armed forces. In any case, very few wars these days are decided by fist fights.
Yes, it’s true that feminists sometimes celebrate women for acting in ways that have been seen as traditionally masculine. But they don’t celebrate women acting like dicks on crowded subway trains.
Here’s one more Schrodinger’s Feminist meme; it’s the last one, I promise.
Feminists don’t give a shit how many women pickup artists sleep with; what bothers us are the pickup techniques in question, which involve mind games and manipulation and sometimes outright rape. And it’s not exactly news that the whole Red Pill/pickup scene today is rife with misogyny.
Here’s a meme attacking feminists for (allegedly) resorting to ad hominem in arguments.
And here are memes happily resorting to ad hominem, mocking feminists as allegedly all fat and ugly. (Don’t ask me to explain the point of the first one because I’ve never seen any feminist say anything remotely like this to an anti-feminist.)
Not much to say about this next one except that MRAs really seem to enjoy fantasizing about hitting women.
Here’s a perplexing one. Am I missing something here or is this completely incoherent?
Also, I’ve never seen a feminist say anything like this ever.
This one has a fact in it.
In this case the fact is actually true, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. It’s just that this percentage has nothing to do with some imagined plot against men by the evil gynocracy; men make up the overwhelming majority of prisoners because men commit the overwhelming majority of crimes. Now, it’s true that a lot of those in prison are there because of bullshit drug charges and the like, but that’s a whole other kettle of fish that has much more to do with race and class than it does with gender.
Here’s one final meme I’m not going to bother to fact-check because I can’t even fucking read it.
Graphic design is my passion!
H/T — The MRAmemes subreddit, where I found all these lovely memes.
