Women’s culture/positive images.  There seems to be a pattern here: where an image isn’t objectifying women on its face, and where the message conveyed is supportive of women’s interests rather than obviously deleterious to women’s interests, female-positive images are often crafted as a political response to male-supremacist political positions and to patriarchy itself. Most of the images we have used here so far as examples of “Women’s culture/positive images” are not positive images in their own right: these images are necessary now, but would not be necessary and would not exist outside a patriarchal context where women are fighting for our very lives, and use various media to illustrate and advance our points.

Here, the memes are a response to the political alliance between misogynist MRAs and misogynist male-to-female transgenders over the issue of born-women meeting in female-only space, without the presence of any male-born persons.
