‘Dilbert’ is way funnier when mashed up with Scott Adams’ MRA theories

Great news, Dilbert fans! There’s a clever new Tumblr for you to click through while you’re whiling away the hours in your office prison.

MRA Dilbert features art and words by Scott Adams, and it’s insanely funny—with a twist. This isn’t subtle Dilbert funny. This is over-the-top,  “Wow, Scott Adams has some extremely stupid opinions!” funny.

That’s because the Tumblr is a mash-up of real art from the beloved Dilbert comic and actual gender essentialist arguments from Adams. In case you missed the memo, the comic artist turned men’s rights activist keeps a troubling blog. In it, Adams defends rape, compares women to children begging for candy, and nonchalantly suggests that violence is perfectly logical when men are denied access to women’s bodies. 

Reading this galling invective is exhausting, to say the least, which is why it’s nice having MRA Dilbert to highlight its complete absurdity. Keep in mind, Adams really wrote these words. All of them. Really.

This might just be our favorite new comic strip.
