I criticized Jordan Peterson for calling MGTOWs “pathetic weasels”, and outlined that MGTOW consists of two groups: genuine MGTOWs who realize that the odds are stacked against them. The world is full of shitty women and the court system will eat them alive. There is another group: “Virgin-TOW”. Those are men who seek shelter in the MGTWO community in order to find a justification for their lack of success with women.
Jordan Peterson backpedalled, and publicly stated that he was sorry for his “pathetic weasels” remark:
In this video, he points out that those two groups of men exist within MGTOW. I don’t like his characterization, though. He says that MGTOW has an “undue influence” on Virgin-TOWs. However, you can’t blame the MGTOW movement for that.
To be completely blunt: Peterson himself appeal to some people on the extreme right. Yet, when he gets asked about this, he, um, weasels himself out of answering such questions by saying that he is not political. This is of course a valid defense. However, I am amazed that someone as smart as Peterson does not see that the same applies to MGTOWs. Guys who refrain from seeking relationships with women because they were burnt and barely walked out alive, or are aware that the chance of getting fucked hard and deep in divorce court can’t be blamed when some people show up who think that all of this is great because it allows them to not face their own insufficiencies. If you can’t attract women, you’re by definition a loser. However, if you can attract women and don’t want to bother with them, you may be a wise man. Don’t blame a wise man because some morons misinterpret the reasons behind his actions.
