There are countless fringe communities, many wholesome, some harmful. Most of them happily exist in their own little bubble. Very few of them outwardly promote themselves. For instance, in the gay community, the garishness of the “queers” is viewed with some disdain. Yet, any sexual perversion is getting plenty of airtime in mainstream media, and some get even pushed by the government. You may have heard of Tranny Story Time events where kindergarteners get to listen to non-binary and gender-flipped versions of traditional fairy tales, read to them by someone not identifying as a cis-white-heterosexual oppressor. I think these groups are massively pushed by the left because they further their goal, which is to plunge society into chaos after which, albeit they are a little unclear on the details, some kind of utopia is going to emerge in which migrants do the low-skilled jobs, artificial intelligence the complex ones, and lefties get to enjoy all the drugs they crave, or something along those lines.
In contrast, there are groups that keep a much lower profile. Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOWs) do not get financial backing by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation and their ideas are a long, long way off of finding themselves in primary and secondary school curricula. In the real world, they are invisible. In fact, “ghosting” is one of the principles they promote, i.e. doing your own thing and keeping it to yourself. While there may be some smaller MGTOW groups who have not been banned from Meetup.com, in practice this community gathers online, and even that is not really necessary for them to exist. Men can go their own way without having to tell others about it. A MGTOW does not need the support of other MGTOWs to go his own way, albeit there is clearly value in exchanging experiences and sharing advice, for instance on how to limit the risk of false accusations of sexual harassment at work.
For a group that keeps such a low profile, it is quite surprising how much vitriol is spewed in their direction. It seems there is a never-ending torrent of hate directed at them. They are derided as “man-children”, diagnosed as suffering from “arrested development” and get told that their movement is “one blowjob away from collapse”. MGTOWs just shrug it off and keep going their own way, however. I find this dynamic quite remarkable. It is generally not acknowledged that MGTOW is a counter-reaction to the excesses of “female empowerment” in the West, which has turned a lot of women into rather insufferable creatures as well as a health risk. We have arrived at a point where a woman with less than ten sexual partners prior to marriage is viewed as having a low partner count. If this is what society has to offer, on top of laws that are heavily biased against men, then it is no surprise that men are checking out.
For every MGTOW there is a woman who cannot find a man. Sure, you can say that “women need men like fish need a bicycle”. If that’s your argument, you should read up on prescription rates of anti-depressants of women: it seems the more empowered they are and the less they supposedly need men (yet benefit tremendously from tax money, which is largely contributed by men), the more they need happy pills. The number of involuntarily single women must be at an all-time high. Whenever you come across a podcast, video, mainstream news article or blog post that attacks MGTOW, chances are high that it was written by a woman who got kicked off the cock carousel and now wonders where all the good men have gone. The good men are going their own way, or have settled down early. This invariably gives rise to frustration.
If you were a frustrated aged empowered woman who missed her chance to get a good man, would you accept responsibility for your actions? Or would you lash out at imaginary “man-children” who cannot grow up and are hindered by a “failure to launch”? It seems the latter is increasingly the case. Those women realize that MGTOWs are not going to come back to the plantation. They feel the effect already. Their mothers were pampered by husbands who were good workhorses. Some of their mothers surely divorced their dutiful workhorses, so they got decades of financial support in marriage, a house, and alimony. Now that Becky is in her 30s, and her last relationship a distant memory — Chad just pumped and dumped her for a few months on and off, but to her they were in a relationship —- she surely feels the pain.
Pain is indeed the reason for the attack on MGTOWs. Women have started to feel the pain of having to fend for themselves. They are single and unhappy and realize that other women are single and unhappy, too. Again, look up the statistics: fewer adults are in sexual relationships and women take depression medication at record numbers. Shaming is a favorite tool of manipulation, which is why such women attempt to collectively shame men. They want to shame them for their lifestyle, hoping that they return to the plantation. Granted, I don’t think that your typical single woman cares too much about the fate of other single women — she surely writes those articles hoping that they will shame the six-figure, six-inched Chad with six-pack abs into her arms (I wrote “into her harms” first, which is an amusing Freudian slip).
If MGTOW was an inconsequential movement, the mainstream would ignore it. We are way beyond that. There is now heavy censorship, demonetization of YouTube channels, and de-platforming. On top, there is an active attack on the MGTOW community by the mainstream with its various channels. MGTOW is not inconsequential. It is a serious threat, the effects of which can now not only be felt on an individual level by women who are affected by it as it forces them into being single. On top, there are now societal consequences. This is why this movement is under attack. If the actions of MGTOWs were inconsequential, they would simply be ignored.
