Rooting around amongst antifeminist memes yesterday I found a cartoon that threw me for a loop — a macabre vision of body horror disguised as a cute cartoon. At first you just notice that it’s a cartoon of a happy young woman on a bike — then, perhaps only microseconds later, you glance down and YAAGGHH WHAT IS THAT WHAT THE FUCK WHAT HAPPENED TO HIS LEGS!?!!

MGTOWs, like many in the manosphere, have adopted the “red pill” as their favorite metaphor for what it’s like to see the alleged hard truths about women through their misogynistic eyes. But one MGTOW Redditor recently reached back further in film history than The Matrix to describe what he feels it’s like to look at women through the lens of MGTOW.
