The Man Boobz Street Team Posters the World!

Man Boobz is not only a blog. We’re all about ACTIVISM! I want to thank the Man Boobz “Street Team” for spreading the word via posters in major cities across the globe – New York, London, Paris, Munich, and many more. Here, some photos documenting our global postering offensive.

Here’s one of our posters in Detroit:

And one in La Paz, Bolivia:

And one in Ulan Bator, Mongolia:

Remember the words of Sylvia Plath Genghis Khan Ghandi Gahdhi Gandhi: “First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then you put up some posters, then you win!”

I’m paraphrasing loosely here.

Keep up the good work, Man Boobz Street Team!!!

About David Futrelle

I run the blog We Hunted the Mammoth, which tracks (and mocks) online misogyny. My writing has appeared in a wide variety of places, including Salon,, the Washington Post, the New York Times Book Review and Money magazine. I like cats.

Posted on August 1, 2012, in a voice for men, actual activism, awesome, I am making a joke, kitties, shit that never happened. Bookmark the permalink. 111 Comments.

  1. I know of someone who breeds them and sells (captive bred)kittens for $10,000 each.

    The hell you do, those cats are hard to breed in captivity.

    I’ve got a friend selling a bridge, you in?

  2. Monsieur sans Nom

    I’ve got a friend selling a bridge, you in?

    Only if you jump off of it!😉

  3. Ye gods, please stop trying to be funny, Noms.

  4. Wow, just found this site, and went on safari thru some of the PUA blogs. My favorite part?

    “…the respectable two-minute mark.”

    Dude, have you EVER had sex with a woman? Keep yankin’ it to RedTube, and stop trying to give the rest of your gender a bad name. I think “Pick-Up Artist” is just code for “Highly-imaginative Virgin”.

  5. Argenti Aertheri


    Dracula — ancient, rusty and creaky joke about bridges
    Mr. No Name — you should jump off a bridge

    Duuuude, telling people they should kill themselves is not remotely funny.

  6. Shit-stupid sandwich humor, abuse/domestic violence “jokes”, repeatedly insisting that women make up excuses to call the police on perfectly innocent dudes ALL TEH TIEM (but following doesn’t count!), etcetera, etcetera.

    How many times has he told us he’s not a misogynist/been indignant that we call “everyone who disagrees” with us a misogynist?

  7. Argenti Aertheri

    Tugley — he said he hates women.

  8. Well that settles that. A man after my own comments.

    PS Om nom I made you your own rationalization hamster:

    You’ve got quite the little runner spinning up there.

  9. Is there a PDF of that poster on the telephone pole? I’d love to print one out and stick it up near my place.

  10. Ah, Loki and the horse, but when he has children w/a giantess, some of them are also animals-fenrir the wolf and jormungandr the world serpent. Jormungandr can apparently turn into a cat too. There’s also hel the corpse collecting emo-chick…

  11. I have just spent half an hour reading various AVfM articles about how they plan to “win”. They genuinely believe that people will be so bowled over by their “literature” that they just have to increase traffic so that the site is in the top 100,000 *in the world*.

    Delusional doesn’t even cover it.

  12. Really, they should be thanking us for increasing their exposure.

  13. Crumbelievable

    also lol at the visceral thrill elam takes at that one poster that’s kind of torn up

    ‘i pissed someone off! ACTIVISM!”

    Because the MRM is nothing but a troll brigade.

  14. There’s also hel the corpse collecting emo-chick…

    I heard she’s making a boat out of our fingernail clippings, which she will ride out on at Ragnarok. So the Norse used to burn their clippings to delay the end of the world. Pretty handy, having open fires around all the time.

    I tried that and I got a sternly worded letter from the fire marshal. They were only little fires! [/silly]

  15. >>>“…the respectable two-minute mark.”

    Is the fact I have trouble restraining my laughter at this basic admission of premature ejaculator status misandry?

    To be fair there was *one time* (TMI) were we were both pretty hot and bothered and I could only keep up for 1min15, but I did give her two orgasms in that time. Of course being a feminist(-ally) and sex positive cis man, according to PUAs/MRAs I cheat… you see, I actually enjoy long foreplay, hence why we were all hot and bothered in the first place.

  16. Daw, kitties. They have a pair of Pallus cats at the Prospect Park Zoo. The pair is an older female and a young rambunctious male. They call them Natasha and Boris, respectively. Natasha is constantly irritated at Boris and chases him away from wherever he’s relaxing at the time, and Boris is constantly trying to win her attention in various ways that annoy her.




  17. David:

    You’re right, that cat is the very essence of awesome.

    Keep at it, Street Team, and soon the entire world will know of the awesomeness that is the Pallas’ cat!

  18. Does anyone else think it’s kind of hilarious that Varpole hasn’t come back to this thread since he made his clever little comment on the first page? He’ll be back for the next thread, of course, pretending it never happened.

  19. howardbann1ster

    @Viscaria: at which points I do hope somebody calls him a vile misandrist for his flippant condemnation of AvfM!!!!

    I’ll just say, ‘Excuse me? That’s rich coming from somebody who wished ill on the poor activists from AvfM! You vile misandrist! I will no longer be talking to you because of your vile misandry, vile. Vile! Good day, sir!’

    …maybe I need to put more ‘vile’ in there.

  20. howardbann1ster

    Also, it’s wonderful to see Nommie throw the reins away and abandon any pretense of engaging with us in any sort of manner. Seriously. Now I can just stop worrying about maybe formulating an argument to counter what he says and instead just treat him like Owly.

    Read half a sentence, realize it’s the same bile-encrusted shit he always posts, roll my eyes, mock vociferously.

    There was (ever so briefly) a moment when I was treating him like a real person, engaging his ideas and what-not.

    Now I’m rooting for the ninja.

    That is all.

  21. @Shade, d’awwwwwwwwww!!! Babies! Totally fscking awesome babies!

  22. I nominate this poster as another we can put up:

    Seriously, people were tear bending over it at my house.

    And Avatar animals! Yay! (Avfm vs Avatar? Pfft. Avatar!)

    DISCLAIMER: Over exuberance is THE holy tenent of the Holy Order of Avatar-ism. Lo, as was decreed in the secret messages relayed by finger placement by Iroh while drinking tea, there shall be utter devotion to the Holy Order or else. Perish, the non believers.

    Saber-toothed moose lions! Sokka’s dialogue with the baby moose lion is so well done. Funny, yep, but even presenting the way we have to think about food choices (meat eating versus vegetarian) in a way that was so careful not to step on anyone’s toes. Way impressive. Kinda the mental process of throwing an idea and seeing how it comes at what trajectory encapsulated in the boomerang imagery.

    Also, the chicken pig, cow pig, sheep pig, deer pig at the farm in the earth kingdom with Zuko. Rooster pig on the fence post!

  23. Does anyone else think it’s kind of hilarious that Varpole hasn’t come back to this thread since he made his clever little comment on the first page? He’ll be back for the next thread, of course, pretending it never happened.

    he’s been mostly absent the past few days, which is probably to his benefit as well as ours

  24. I’m surprised that manboobz even knows about them as they seem to be one of the more obscure of the 37 members of the Cat family.

    Because the folks here care nothing about cats, and hate the obscure, as they loathe trivia.

  25. Monsieur sans Nom

    Because the folks here care nothing about cats, and hate the obscure, as they loathe trivia.

    Sounds about right. Aspies love the obscure, and get accused of being pretentious for such by hiptards. :-p

  26. aspies=hipsters now???

  27. howardbann1ster

    Nonononono, MSN is the Aspie, and he’s accusing us of being hipsters.

    Also, he doesn’t appear to understand that Pecunium was being facetious.

    Also, he doesn’t appear to have any relation to objective reality.

  28. wait is awkward dude with self-diagnosed case of aspergers msn’s ‘non-physical disability’

    because that explains so much

  29. Why, Hamilton, why?!

  30. Wait I am so confused, if he is taking pecy’s comment seriously how are we hipsters? Hipsters like obscure, isn’t that the point of hipsters??? So he is not a hipster but is made fun of hipsters by liking the obscure??? I don’t understand????

    This is all ignoring that pecy was not serious.😄

  31. Bu-but he called us hipsters buttt hipsters like obscure buttt why would he call us hipsters if he said we didn’t like the obscure. Does that make us both hipsters??? Does he know what a hipster is???


  32. Jormungandr can apparently turn into a cat too.

    No, no, that was a glamour laid on him by Utgard-loki, remember?

  33. “So the Norse used to burn their clippings to delay the end of the world.”

    Teeeeeeechnically Raganrök doesn’t start until Loki is imprisoned and subsequently frees himself following the murder of Baldr, so alternatively: burn all the mistletoe.

    Fun fact: It is generally believed that when Christians went to Norway, they described the events of Ragnarök as having already happened, hoping that by telling Scandinavians it was a prequel to the bible they would more easily convert. (Ragnarök results in the death of the sun goddess, causing a long-lasting winter on Midgard/earth, which only one man and one woman survive.)

    /is Norwegian

  34. MSN is the kind of person I can imagine saying “I can’t abide pretension.”

    Hey MSN – fuck off and kill me a mammoth! That’s not just a gender reversal of the sammich joke; I really mean it. Don’t come back until you’ve brought one down.

  35. So, um, is our shit fucked up yet? I can’t really tell.

  36. Sounds about right. Aspies love the obscure, and get accused of being pretentious for such by hiptards. :-p

    Holy extreme generalization, Batman. Also, lol @MSN’s apparent belief that there couldn’t possibly be any Aspies among the non-troll commentariat here.

  37. At least two of the posters are down now!

  38. Argenti Aertheri

    “Now I’m rooting for the ninja.”

    Appreciated, though he’d never see it coming and it’d be a bit “idk, his heart just stopped” (my avatar is Haku from early Naruto)

    Re: Pallas kittens — omgs nothing should be that cute, D’AWWW (oh wait, Haku also knows all about genjutsu huh? *breaks cute-ness spell* Ah, much better!)

    I’m apparently in a silly mood currently…I’ll stop derailing threads with my insanity, sorry!

  39. Felis manul! The trouble with these impressive cats is that kittens are unusually susceptible to fade, and since the same is often true of Persians/ part Persians, I suspect there’s something to the theory that they have some Pallas’s cat in them.
