#1268 – Shock & Awe 3

The third in a week of images designed to generate a reaction and/or comments. And it’s not just for women…

  1. I wonder what a graphologist would make of this? That aside, what I find interesting about this is how hard it is to articulate ideas about “men’s rights” without being described as a misogynist. Guess that’s the point? Both sides of that argument have a vested interest in subjugating the other party. Perhaps it would have been more helpful if the person responsible had written “fight misandry”? 🙂

    • I am not casting aspersions here, but I have a sneaking suspicion they may not have been able to spell ‘misandry’, let alone know what it means… After all, they used spray paint to make their point…

      • Spray paint agitprop has it’s place. In the right context it can be very powerful. LESS BEAUTY MORE BRAINS was a bit of spray paint agitprop daubed across a car advert that had a woman in a fur coat sitting atop a sports car. But this one lacks that concern for context. If they’d sprayed “men’s rights” across a Calvin Klein advert. Now that would’ve been something? 🙂

      • I’m not knocking graffiti, believe me; in the right place it works wonders. These two words were sprayed in a number of underpasses along the South Bank; this is the image that came out best (underneath Blackfriars).
