Men Going Their Own Way
Men Going Their Own Way, often abbreviated as MGTOW, is a mostly pseudonymous online community of men supported by websites and social media presences cautioning men against serious romantic relationships with women, especially marriage. The community is part of what is more broadly termed the "manosphere". MGTOW have "...vowed to stay away from women, stop dating and not have children". MGTOW focus on men's self-ownership rather than changing the status quo through activism and protest, making MGTOW distinct from the men's rights movement.
Why It's Rotten
- While MGTOW hasn't always been like this ever since it was first heard about, or not about what it is about today, the community is filled with toxic misogynists that overgeneralize women and even practicing sexism, as many of them felt or have been betrayed by women at sometime during their lives, they tend to view females as ATM machines or expendable containers for reproduction purposes.
- Their official website is no better. The front page looks seemingly innocent until one discover its forum threads. Some user on YouTube even stated that there was a thread on why it is acceptable to beat your one's into submission.
- Some of them prefer fictional female characters (many of which are underage) over real women. This means that MGTOWs are at times borderline pedophiles.
- "Women are children".
- They treat MGTOW as if it was some kind of religious cult.
- Tons of involuntary celibates (incels) trying to prove MGTOW is the best of both worlds.
- They want women to not have as many rights and don't care about what it'll do. It's also badly-enforced in places where women are treated like inferior.
- They frequently say every women (even non-feminists) are feminists who are sluts.
- Many of them raid comment sections on videos that explains the problem of gynocentrism, how the school systems are treating boys, demonstrating misandry in the media, videos about herbivore men, ect. They also whine about their foreskin being cut off after birth in female genital mutilation (FGM) videos, and comment on videos that have nothing to do with them.
- They constantly use the "MGTOW" label so they could describe themselves on who they are.
- The MGTOWers go against what the idea was originally supposed to be about. Instead of completely ignoring women and move on from the past, they just complain about them almost daily.
- If you don't agree with their idea, then they would harass the hell out of you.
- Many of them are simply too stubborn to accept the advice and opinions of others.
- They are the male versions of radical feminism and SJWs. Like SJWs who, in response to sexism and racism in certain aspects of society, became racists and sexists themselves; MGTOW became selfish jerks who care nothing but their own existence in response to a toxic and selfish social environment.
- They ruined the reputation of sites such as Reddit, which caused many people (mostly feminists) to accuse the site as a "hate site directed against women". Despite all of this, it was just an untrue stereotype that was widespread years ago.
- Just like how sjws will use children to further their causes they use young boys to corrupt them as well.
- At least there are some MGTOWs that don't waste their entire years complaining about women, but this is a very rare occurrence.
- Some of MGTOW's concepts are actually positive, like focusing life on attaining purpose, physical and mental self-development, and freedom from the traditional social expectations; and that only oneself have the right to determine what his'her true life goals are.
- Like MRA, MGTOW can be described as a byproduct of SJWism.
