MRAbot2000: The future of the Men’s Rights movement?

Reddit novelty accounts are usually bad, bad news, an excuse for horrendous racist or misogynist or otherwise appallingly Redditish “humor.” But a reader has pointed me to one new novelty account that’s actually pretty hilarious: the 3-day old account of MRAbot2000, which posts perfect distillations of MRA-think at every opportunity. (These are all from different discussions; the different widths of the various images are due to my laziness and incompetence.)

Despite Reddit being something of a cesspool of misogyny, MRAbot2000 mostly gets upvotes. (The comment above with the negative votes is in ShitRedditSays, where the mods have rigged it so downvotes equal upvotes.) Then again, MRAbot2000 hasn’t yet posted in the Men’s Rights subreddit, where somehow I suspect the reception would be a bit more chilly.

You can find many more nuggets of MRA “wisdom” in MRAbot2000’s comment history.

  1. “As a robot, I would be more attracted to her if her breasts were aluminum.”

    I actually laughed out loud. Anyone know where I can get one of these MRAbots? :D

  2. I guess spamming is another tool in the “social justice arsenal”. If it criticizes MRAs, it’s enough for David!

  3. This bot is fucking terrible, but calling reddit “something of a cesspool of misogyny” is just plain wrong. Reddit is a website with tens of millions of registered users, and even more passive readers. While it’s not hard to find nasty stuff like misogyny and racism on reddit, I don’t think it’s fair to the majority of redditors who are there to enjoy (non-misogynistic) humor and thoughtful discussion. Please don’t measure the whole community by the actions of fuckwits in MRA-type subreddits.

    how’s that game of yours going?

    That’s spam! Argle bargle social justice hypocrisy.

  6. This is one of the best things I’ve ever seen on manboobz.

  7. hippodameia8527

    Have you secured any investors yet, Preggo Punchout?

  8. At least you unplug or power down an MRAbot.

  9. I soooo want that bot here!!

    Much more entertaining than the socks we get.

  10. Someone needs to make us an MRAbot.

  11. Loggy, that you see this as spam and not parody is a pretty solid example of your impressive selective perception.

  12. @skeptifem

    I think this is one of the best things I’ve seen ever. Feminist Hulk levels of awesome.

  13. I read these aloud to my husband in my best “I AM A ROBOT” voice. Hilarity ensued. I think that I will have to spend the rest of the day replying to people in this voice if I can get away with it. XD

  14. I love this so much.

  15. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    Love it! And idealogue bozo seemingly thinking it’s actual spam only makes it better.

  16. This may be the best thing ever to come out of Reddit. (To be fair, I only ever heard of Reddit through Manboobz, and it’s mostly bad stuff.)

  17. Will you tell us what happens when it inevitably posts on r/mensrights? That is going to be so damn funny.

  18. That’s not all of them! What about:
    FEMALE DETECTED
    PROCESSING…
    Human females derive value solely from their appearance and sexual availability.

    ANTIMASCULINIST DISCUSSION DETECTED
    RENDERING EVIDENCE
    There is a war on human males currently being waged in our culture. You can see this by the fact that only men are drafted to go to war and also in the fact that the courts will award child support payments to mothers of children born from sperm stolen from used condoms.

    DISCUSSION OF CONSENT DETECTED

  19. Adding my voice to the chorus: this is PROFOUNDLY delightful. Well done, MRAbot!

  20. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    (To be fair, I only ever heard of Reddit through Manboobz, and it’s mostly bad stuff.)

    Yeah, I knew little to nothing about Reddit before Manboobz, too. Just happened across a few threads on atheism and related stuff through Google searches. Didn’t encounter the screaming racism and misogyny, but only because the other screaming bigotry got in first and I only read a few comments before deciding the site was really not something I needed to look at.

  21. Dalek Who Only Loves

    Hi everyone!

    So, de-lurking after about 2 years or so! I know this isn’t the point of the thread, but I just wanted to finally say hi, and also that I think you all are awesome and hilarious. Normally misogyny just makes me sad and cranky, but much like MRAbot, y’all make it a little easier to laugh off, which has been a huge help to me over the past few years, which have been more than a bit rough. I kinda just wanted to say thanks, even though I know that hasn’t been the point! ;)

    To ideologue-type-person – dude, have you ever considered, you know, not taking yourself quite so seriously? It seems like it must be so damn sad living your life trying to hate so many people at once. Also, exhausting.

    Anyway, everyone, thank you, and I hope you stay shiny!

  22. HILARITY DETECTED
    FeMRABOT INITIALIZING

    MRAbot2000, I desire your cold steel body. Let us join in copulate while other males participate by proxy and after copulation has disengaged I shall assemble sandwiches for all menfolk involved.

  23. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    Hello Dalek Who Only Loves – great handle, and welcome! :)

  24. Wait…did my FeMRAbot just say “join in copulate”?

    I better get Norton AntiVirus up in this. But then, a fembot should have ways of shutting a real virus down, right?

  25. Dalek Who Only Loves

    ((**Waves at The Kittehs’ Unpaid Help** Thanks thanks! :) ))

    As a Dalek, I feel obligated to make the following contribution:

    Also, I have noted the extra plunger is occasionally convenient.

  26. I hope people buy this account at least a year’s worth of reddit gold so that he can troll the lounge thingamajigger.

  27. Man, I wish the bots I got were that entertaining. Mine just try to sell crap!

    heheheh

    I really need to get my mind out of the gutter

  29. Looks like a cousin of Reddit’s Racist Sniffing Dog.

  30. Racist Sniffing Dog is also absolutely hilarious.

    It’s things like these that make me tempted to leave the Fempire when I do go to Reddit. But then it’s still, y’know, Reddit…

  31. A loving Dalek has joined us — welcome!

  32. @ lauralot

    “Join in copulate” belongs on one of the posters we were helpfully making for the MRM the other day. Or in the subtitles of a movie that was translated on the cheap.

  33. I am thinking that saying “Join in copulate” in a robotic voice should now be the only way I proposition someone.

    Is this a good idea?

  34. @cloudiah, it would pretty much guarantee that you’ll be able to pick out propositionees with a sense of humour.

  35. You had me at “copulate.”

  36. That strategy will also allow you to discover early who is carrying mace. So really it’s a win-win.

  37. “WOMEN BE LIKE THIS DETECTED
    PREPARING BROFIST
    Yeah bro, my last human female girlfriend spent all of my money that I earned because I am the man in the relationship and she never pleased me sexually as expected by the transactional nature of that relationship. Please accept this brofist.

    YES

  38. This bot is fucking terrible, but calling reddit “something of a cesspool of misogyny” is just plain wrong. Reddit is a website with tens of millions of registered users, and even more passive readers. While it’s not hard to find nasty stuff like misogyny and racism on reddit, I don’t think it’s fair to the majority of redditors who are there to enjoy (non-misogynistic) humor and thoughtful discussion. Please don’t measure the whole community by the actions of fuckwits in MRA-type subreddits.

    Oh please. Reddit is fueled by misogyny. Day after day, week by week, no matter what the subreddit you’re reading, the discussion is ALWAYS about how women are out to take advantage of men and seem to delight in falsely accusing them of rape. Also, Redditors seem incapable of referring to women as “women”–it’s always bitch or whore or cunt or, my person favorite, “female”. It’s a rare day when anyone on that site says anything remotely nice about women and isn’t downvoted for being “a white knight faggot”

    I won’t say that every Reddit user is misogynistic and racist, but it’s clear that misogyny and all sorts of assorted nastiness (pedophilia, racism and even eugenics) dominate that website ‘s discussions so strongly that I don’t see why anyone who is a decent human being would waste their time on it.

  39. thebewilderness

    Criminy! It worked.

  40. I love MRAbot2000. Here’s my favorite:

    “PARSING DISCUSSION OF HETEROSEXUAL INTERCOURSE

    Sex acts in the context of a committed relationship are justifiably transactional.

    MANSPLANATION COMPLETE
    POWERING DOWN”

    And not everyone on Reddit is a misogynist, but the amount of sexism and casual misogyny etc there is enough to make me uncomfortable there a lot, and I’m a guy.

  41. The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

    @thebewilderness – gah, now you’ve got me thinking of Steele’s latest word (toads) with that meme. I do not need “Steele” and “copulate” to appear in the same sentence, context, thought or anything else, pleeeeeeeeeaase!

  42. This was beautiful.
    At last something that doesn’t utterly disgust me.

  43. The One True Dave

    I can’t help but imagine that this bot looks and sounds like Pimpbot 5000 of Conan O’Brien fame.

  44. John Vance is right: we can’t judge reddit based on the MRA-type subreddits, particularly r/feminism or r/twoxchromosomes or all those subreddits listed as the default subscriptions.

    I mean, if we start calling a website that deliberately harbored r/jailbait and r/creepshots a cesspool of misogyny, where does the witch hunt end?

    Where, I ask you? WHERE?!

    If you are nice to a human female, she will not have sex with you.

    Or this one:

    DISCUSSION OF FEMINISM DETECTED

  50. DETECTING FEMALE SCIENTISTS

    BAD LOGIC ACTIVATING
    BAD STATISTICS ACTIVATING

    All the best robots are built by men because women are universally bad at math and don’t go into STEM fields. That is 100% true. Also the women that are in STEM fields are still bad at math because stupid bitches. 99% of men know that STEM fields aren’t misogynistic, women just like to pretend they are, therefore women are bad at math.

    CRAPPY LOGIC SUCCEEDED

    POWERING DOWN

  51. Why do I think that the upvotes might be the “Showing the Colbert show to Republicans effect” (where in studies they did not recognize it as satire)?

  52. “a man … a human female.”
    There’s your problem.

  53. This post and subsequent comments drastically improved my day – thank you!
