The motif of the work Ei bra kvinne siviliserer mannen is taken from an Instagram comment the artist was tagged in.

In the comment the censored man with clarity states that women are not doing themselves any good by imitating men on the scale of nastiness. 

“Dere gjør dere selv bare en bjørnetjeneste ved å etterligne oss menn på hæslighetsskalaen!”
