About

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.
