The creator of the Fraud Magazine cover a few posts ago, a guy called Marc, very kindly e-mailed me a few more pics with permission to use them.
Here’s my favourite!
That would make a good poster to print out and cunningly pin up on some telegraph poles, although women would no doubt rip them down (the same way muslims quickly tore down a load of Support Denmark posters that some brave soul pinned to telegraph poles all over a muslim neighbourhood last year.) Better yet, pin them up on the back of doors to cubicles in men’s rooms in pubs and clubs. Just for a laugh.

I have been thinking for sometime now to form a group of local men divorcees, for the purpose of giving advise to those about to get marry, about the sort of sham marriage has become.
The advise will include details of how he will eventually be plucked of his possessions in a divorce court.
I would like to give the bloggers the opportunity to give the group an appropriate name.

Sticking this kind of poster anywhere is hate speech.

This is most men’s fate only after the Bridezilla has her dream wedding, $50,000 rock on her left hand and her queen-for-a-day theme. What then? How does any guy live up to this?
I’d like to form a group of 40ish women for the purpose of instructing young women about to marry what marriage is and what they should expect from it… would she marry the guy without the big rock on her hand or the Vera Wang designer dress? Is she willing to emotionally support her guy, uplift him everyday and give to him without expecting riches in return?
Doubt it. Most young women would run the other way if they thought they’d have to actually GIVE anything.
Besides…that’s what debutante balls and sweet 16 parties are for. Then it’s time to grow up.

I’m all over posting them in my town. Can you have your friend reformat them for 8.5 x 11 inch, maype PDF. If you serve them from your blog, I’ll have 500 of them printed personally.

i don’t understand the point of using Campbell Brown’s wedding photo in this altered photo. Don’t you think an anonymous bride would better serve the purpose??

Whether anonymous @ 8:10 is a feminist or anti-feminist, they are correct; putting this poster up really would count as hate-speech in most Western countries.
Endlessly insulting, degrading and slandering men for a living and in academic circles or in the media is fine, even encouraged, but warning men against the fraud marriage today would be seriously regarded as hate speech these days.

There is more to the anti-marriage argument than the likelihood it will end in divorce. After a few years of marriage married men have miserable lives. They sacrifice their goals, desires, and dreams to provide for somebody else. They work the drudgery of a daily job to buy her all the things she wants and usually nothing he wants or nothing he thinks is important. In the house of every married man there are thousands of dollars of knickknacks, childish bobbles, and stupid things sitting on the shelf that he was required to buy for her. She picks the house, she buys new clothes and new shoes every week, she demands new furniture, she decides on the vacation he will pay for, she flies into a rage because he can’t afford to take her to that five-star restaurant her friend Suzie was talking about. Not acquiescing means having a fight until she gets her way. Not acquiescing means she treats him even worse than she is treating him now.
The wife becomes the new mommy and the husband is once again a little boy. Instead of “Please mommy, may a have a bicycle for Christmas?” it becomes, “Please honey, may I use my own money that I worked for to buy myself the motorcycle I’ve always wanted?” Everything is an argument, a compromise, a debate. Opening the window isn’t as simple as it used to be – it now requires a discussion. Every year she gets a little fatter, a little meaner, and the insulting and shaming language gets worse. Eventually the sex stops. Then what do you have? A ‘buddy’ or a roommate but hubby is still working to pay for the second car she wants and still financing her life. Imagine that, paying tens of thousands of dollars every year to have somebody make snide remarks and insults directed at you. Married men such pitiful creatures.
In contrast, a single man can live his life for himself, choose the path he wants for himself, change careers if he wants to, buy what he wants, vacation where he wants. A single man can have a new girlfriend who actually likes having sex with him (and get a different girlfriend when she cuts him off or starts treating him poorly). A single man can buy the car HE wants not the station wagon SHE wants. Live in the place he wants and not go into debt for the house in the suburbs she wants. A single man can live free and make his own choices and not be a whimpering child asking for permission. All the money a single man works for is his money to save, to spend, to invest as he sees fit.

who is it that’s doing these pics you’re getting, and specifically…
1) How do we pass ideas to them
2) Any limitations on their skills (e.g. photoshop-ed images only, no drawing from scratch)
3) Do they have a web page?

I’ve actually started doing something similar, leaving out various articles (including some from this blog) in the common areas of my apartment complex. For awhile they would sit out for a week or more before maintenance finally noticed and cleared them off … only to have me replace it with a new one.
Then last week, one was left in the laundry room with this scrawled over it in marker, and I quote (typos included): ” Your A Real Peice Of Work if this is all you have to do nobody want’s to read this! Quit leaving this stuff laying around! Fag!!!”
They’re so cute and funny when they get mad, spluttering like an overworked leaf blower and not nearly as articulate. Score 1 for men, I think.

After wandering onto Duncans Blog…I couldn’t agree with him more….it’s all set up for the women in this country to pillage and rape men’s bank accounts…their retirement…everything they have worked for…at this point…anyone who wants to label it hate speech…is on the other side…or they wear a dress…

Why do the left hate freedom of speech so much?
I bet Stalins bullshit wasn’t hate speech to them.

That picture should be turned into a T-Shirt and sold.
It would be great to wear to high school or College.

True. If connected to a woman they are experts (I’m talking world class) at making your life a living hell if you don’t do what they want. As soon as you give in you’re in heaven TEMPORARILY, but then her inner demon bitch goddess sets her sights on something even more expensive (and a waste of money) than what she has now and the cycle begins anew. The only thing about this merry-go-round is that it spins on a gigantic drill bit digging a hole to hell. Best to get off as soon as possible. Or better yet never get on. There is NO middle ground. You cannot appease her. Any truce is only temporary. You cannot win. She’s genetically programmed to squeeze the life from you and always demand more (towards infinity).

A man is worse than a talking ATM machine. A man getting financially raped in divorce would be akin to a judge forcing an ATM that dispensed an extra $20 by mistake to keep dispensing that $20 since the ATM user has “gotten used to the lifestyle” and needs to “maintain her standard of living.”
mfsob, they will try as hard as they can to attack you below the belt. Keep up the good work.

– WOW, I actually did hear this about a married guy in real life the other day!
“leaving out various articles (including some from this blog) in the common areas of my apartment complex”
– AWESOME IDEA!!!!!!!

I just did something the other day that NO married man is ever likely to do. I purchased a genuine Colonel Klink Head Knocker (Hogan’s Heroes), and positioned him on the mantle over the fire place in my living room. Occasionally I tap his head just to see it wobble as I pass by.
A woman would never allow such an indulgence in HER living room. But, it’s MY living room. I also sat there last night until three in the morning watching Hogan’s Heroes. I have the first four seasons on DVD, and I spend my evenings watching them, if I’m not watching some other bloody-gory guy movie. I couldn’t do that either if I was married.
I really have no other goals in life right now beyond collecting the entire series of Hogan’s on DVD. No other goals at all.
All Hail Colonel Klink!

Most divorce attorneys are female actually, and most of the hardcore rape prosecutors for the DA are also female.

anonymous 8:43: A friend of mine (who hasn’t been here but hopefully will soon) is good at this sort of thing. if you send me ideas or post them here, I’m sure I could talk him into it.

If you guys want a real hoot, go to Harley Forums.com and monitor the forums. It’s a huge collection of unofficial Harley forums for guys who ride Harleys. (obviously)
I go there for technical questions and whatnot, and on an almost daily basis some “macho” Harley rider is squeaking about how his wife “allowed” him to buy a Harley, or he is so thankful that his wife is so generous that she lets him ride, or how he has to hide his new accessory or piece of chrome from his wife.
Shrivels my balls, it does.
If only they had some.

The funny thing is that the media has made men believe that we are the spendthrift ones, and that without the “reasonable” woman who balances the checkbooks, we would all be broke and penniless, having whiled away our paychecks, savings and investments on gadgets and power saws.
I think some of them even have the gall to point to divorced men and say that this is what happens when the woman’s responsible influence is no longer present.

Yeah, and that total bullshit argument that the man’s standard of living goes up after a divorce … righttttttttttttttttt … that’s why I’m in this one-bedroom crackerbox and have learned 101 ways to make Hamburger Helper taste like something different while hoping my 10-year-old car doesn’t give up the ghost.
I forget which sold-out concert she went to last week, or maybe it was the football game. And the car is 2-years-old – time to update it!
