Men Going Their Own Way is an organization strictly created for men who no longer want to associate themselves with women. It isn’t a gay pride movement; it’s a movement that says, “In the wake of third wave feminism, men’s rights are no longer a concern. This is an injustice.” Liberal women have used #MeToo, the women’s march and other pro women’s agendas to completely ruin and delegitimize the man, especially the straight white male who apparently needs to check his privilege till the day he dies.
At first, I didn’t understand what was so great about MGTOW, I thought, “They want a world without women… I’m a woman. I literally cannot support this.” But after reading their website and hearing what a few of them had to say, I see the appeal. While I can’t honestly say I’ve given them my full support, I understand where they’re coming from. I empathize with them and see the need for this type of movement in today’s society.
This is a boys only club, no girls allowed. I believe that this is a positive thing, they aren’t being forced into inclusion. The front page of their website makes clear their principles and motives:
Men Going Their Own Way is a statement of self-ownership, where the modern man preserves and protects his own sovereignty above all else. It is the manifestation of one word: “No”. Ejecting silly preconceptions and cultural definitions of what a “man” is. Looking to no one else for social cues. Refusing to bow, serve and kneel for the opportunity to be treated like a disposable utility. And, living according to his own best interests in a world which would rather he didn’t.
In other words . . . common sense for men.
Women are using their rise to power and influence to shame or even shun men. Apparently, nobody ever told them that with great power comes great responsibility. Women in many parts of the world hold grudges against men and assume that every single one of them is sexist, that they live in the 1700’s where we had three jobs; cooking, cleaning and taking care of our young. In modern society, things are different, everybody has a chance to pursue their God-given abilities regardless of gender. This has been both a blessing and a curse. As stated before, with great power comes great responsibility and most of these feministic women would rather use their power and influence to destroy men and bring greater glory to themselves rather than change the world and make it a better place. In the words of Donald Trump, “sad.”
Luckily, there are a few women out there who are changing the world without playing the woman card or pledging their allegiance to the liberal agenda. I aspire to be like them. I aspire to radically change this world. That being said, I still think that MGTOW is a much-needed group for men in this day and age who just want to get together and be men without the fear of triggered feminists judging them on their every word.
Men in this movement aren’t all necessarily against getting married and having children (though many of them are.) One excerpt from the section titled “Manosphere” reads:
Happiness is a man who protects and cares for his family, goes forth and conquers, gives of himself for a greater cause, and ensures his legacy – because that’s what he was made to do. He doesn’t fear resistance, turbulence, or commitment, because his masculine frame turns resistance into rise, finds sustenance in turbulent waters, and relies on the steadfast roots of commitment to provide stability for himself and safety for those he vowed to protect.
Finding a wife is not a priority for the men of MGTOW, the whole point of the movement is that they’re going their own way, they’ve separated themselves from women and societal norms. They give examples of several world changers who didn’t even give women the time of day.
Manosphere goes on to describe many instances where the feministic woman has in some way, let the liberal propaganda dictate her life and now holds the belief that women are far greater than men. Men are inferior to these women and basically treated as the scum of the earth.
Another excerpt from the article reads the truest statement that has ever been written about gender in modern times:
The young man has finally learned that men and women share the same inherent character flaws, but not the same consequences. He has sinned, and he has paid dearly. She has sinned, and she has been exalted.
How does the statement above coincide with feminism’s version of equal rights? It doesn’t. What a feminist wants isn’t equality, but superiority. She is angered by the fact that most every groundbreaking invention was created by a man. She is angered also by the fact that there has yet to be a female president. Instead of actually being the change, they complain that someone hasn’t already done it for them. On the other hand, maybe that’s a good thing. I’m definitely not against a female president, but I will never give my vote to support a feminist one.
MGTOW may not support women’s rights to any degree, but I can’t necessarily blame them for having this view. They have the right to assemble, and they have the right to believe whatever they want to. On their history section, they explain their motivation to promote such a movement:
MGTOW is not as old as fire, but it’s as old as a man’s first discovery of it.
Fire always exists – even when you can’t see it – and it only takes a spark or a bolt of lightning to ignite a blaze. MGTOW could be regarded as a reaction to recent cultural shifts, but the exact phrase “Men Going Their Own Way” can be found in print and newspaper clippings dating back to 1853, and spanning the 20th century.
If MGTOW is fire, then perhaps feminism is gasoline.
They go on to quote Sir Isaac Newton’s 3rd Law of Motion, “For every action has an equal and opposite reaction”. So perhaps without third wave feminism, the men who support this movement would not feel as inclined to do so. Men would be men and women would be women. Some women would go the distance, some men would fall short. Without the feminist movement, people would just feel free to lead their own life.
If the women in these men’s lives wanted nothing to do with them other than destroy them, why would they be an advocate for anything related to them? This movement, whether you support it or not, makes all the sense in the world. Because of my gender, they may disagree with my burning passion to change the world, but that’s their prerogative. We live in a country where we can freely hold and boldly express any opinion we choose to. I am a young, married millennial woman, and although it does not benefit me to support MGTOW, I understand the appeal and its need to exist for men who have constantly been bombarded with nothing but the feminist agenda. Perhaps one day, women will finally realize how harmful the feminist movement is and abandon it, but until then, men are proudly going their own way.
