Steven Crowder's "Change My Mind" Campus Sign
Steven Crowder's "Change My Mind" Campus Sign is a photograph of American-Canadian conservative podcaster Steven Crowder seated behind a sign that reads "Male Privilege is a myth / Change My Mind" outside of Texas Christian University. Since its upload via Crowder's Twitter account in February 2018, the photograph has been turned into an exploitable template for online parodies.
On February 16th, 2018, comedian Steven Crowder tweeted a picture of himself seated behind a sign that reads "Male privilege is a myth / Change my mind" and the caption, "Hello @TCU. Come one come all. #ChangeMyMind." The picture is part of Crowder's podcast and YouTube in which he attempts to have people with opposing viewpoints convince him of various issues. The post (shown below) received more than 900 retweets and 6,400 likes in four days.
Shortly after Crowder posted the image, on February 18th, people began photoshopping different images on to the photograph. Twitter user @Whatchamccaulit replaced Crowder's head with Crying Michael Jordan (shown below, left). Twitter user @IanWhetstone tweeted the image with the sign changed to read "The clitoris is a myth / Change my mind" (shown below, center).
On February 19th, Twitter user @RealishKyle tweeted the image with the sign photoshopped to read "Gonna drink this mug of Hot Piss / Change my mind." The post (shown below, right) received more than 200 retweets and 1,500 likes.
That day, Redditors on the /r/dankmemes subreddit began posting photoshops of the image. Redditor xereeto posted a version that reads "Traps are not gay / Change my mind." The post (shown below) received more than 5,000 points (98% upvoted) and 120 comments in 24 hours.
