Men’s Rights Edmonton in Canada has done some great work for mens (human) rights recently. The Vancouver Police Department came up with these anti-male posters that accuse all men of wanting to sexually assault women with the tag line, “Don’t Be That Guy”. MR-E turned the tables on them with a series of posters called, “Don’t Be That Girl” which were posted all over Edmonton, Canada. Here’s an example:
Needless to say, MR-E’s campaign has generated some reactions such as this woman who wants you report the posters to the government:

The “Don’t be that girl” campaign is certainly having an effect beyond individuals. The Vancouver Police Department, who originally created the “don’t be that guy” campaign, is “disturbed” by these posters. So is the Huffington Post, the Edmonton Journal, and the Ottawa Citizen. A local TV station in Edmonton talked to a feminist that said women “just don’t like about that [rape and sexual assualt] even though the reality is that the false rape industry is real. MR-E is having quite an effect with just a little work. This is the type of thing that can be used to positively promote men’s (human) rights, and it’s an example for all of us to follow.
