“A man without a government is like a fish without a bicycle”

“A man without a government is like a fish without a bicycle” is a saying that has been printed on many images, usually credited to Alvaro Koplovich. “A woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle” is a famous feminist slogan; a fish, of course, does not need a bicycle. The saying means that a man does not need a government.
 
“A man without a government. is like a fish without a bicycle. -Alvaro Koplovich-” (shown on an image) was posted on Facebook by I AM AN Individual on December 6, 2012.
 
       
Wiktionary: a woman without a man is like a fish without a bicycle
English
Etymology

A well-known feminist slogan coined in 1970 by the Australian filmmaker, social activist, and writer Irina Dunn (born 1948); according to her recollection, adapted from the phrase “A man needs God like a fish needs a bicycle” which she read in a philosophical text. The original phrase appears to be “A man without faith is like a fish without a bicycle”, coined by Charles S. Harris in 1955 and published in a 1958 article in the Swarthmore Phoenix. The phrase is often erroneously attributed to the American feminist journalist and social political activist Gloria Steinem (born 1934), but she disclaimed this in a letter to Time magazine published on 16 September 2000.
