One thing you can say about manosphere meme-makers: despite years of practice, they never seem to get any better at it. Consider the following memes I collected today from an assortment of places from Pinterest to Twitter.
The graphic design is often a little on the crude side. And the content is if anything even less sophisticated than the design.
Next, WALLS-O-TEXT. Manospherists often forget that the whole point of a meme is to grab the viewer’s attention quickly, not to wear wear us down with excessive verbiage in tiny type.
Sometimes these meme-writers forget to include any graphic content at all.
That’s no meme, son; that’s just a couple of paragraphs of blurry type.
But you don’t need a lot of tiny words to render your memes unreadable — just some basic design ineptitude.
But I have to say that my favorite manosphere memes are the ones that feature me.
I wish I still had that hoodie. I wore it until it just plain wore out.
