Posters compare so-called “men’s rights” movement to other marginalized groups

Several posters advertising men’s rights have arrived in Saskatoon this past week.

The arrival of the posters, which are dated “July 8, 2013”, mirror the ‘Don’t Be That Girl’ poster campaign that recently sparked outrage in Edmonton.

You can read about that at a variety of news sources, including CBC and The Huffington Post and our buds at The Albatross.

However, the posters that are being put up in Saskatoon aren’t the same as those in Edmonton, which parody an anti-rape campaign.

At the risk of editorializing, let me say this: ugh.

Actually, fuck it, I am going to editorialize.

Seriously, ugh.

The posters advertise slogans such as “Feminism = Male Disposability” and “Men’s Rights are Human Rights” while comparing the so-called men’s movement to other marginalized groups such as “African Americans”, “Jews”, “gays and lesbians” and “women”.

The posters are affiliated with the website Avoiceformen.com, who state that one of their missions is “To educate men and boys about the threats they face in feminist governance and to promote an end to that governance.”

This certainly isn’t the first time that a men’s rights campaign has popped up in Saskatoon – anyone remember the infamous Promise Keepers religious group that came to town a couple of years ago to flex their very feeble male muscle?

Ugh. Barf. Puke.
