MGTOW - Men Going Their Own Way is a label that has been given to naturally occurring phenomena that takes place consciously or unconsciously among men.
MGTOW is the statement of self-ownership and saying that only you have the right to decide what your goals in life should be.
It is saying that, as a man I will not surrender my will to the social expectations of women and society, because both have become hostile against masculinity.
One can argue that gynocentrism is and always has been the main religion that rules mankind.
In that sense MGTOW is a lot like atheism. Like atheism, MGTOW is not the positive claim about some kind of solution or alternative. It is the statement, that no matter how popular or old the ruling gynocentrism religion is, I do not accept it.
Identifying yourself as MGTOW is not something that in any way limits your options in life. In fact the opposite is true.
If it is your own real will, you can still do all the things that society expects from you. Being MGTOW just adds all the other possibilities to your options too.
You do not have to ignore women. If you want you can be a pick up artist who gets more a** than a toilet seat, you can avoid relationships with women or you can marry your high school sweetheart and have three kids. You can do whatever you want.
MGTOW is not about WHAT YOU DO, it is about WHY YOU DO IT. If you are doing something because this is your own real will, then you are going your own way. If you are doing the same thing because of social expectations, then you are going the way of others.
As long as you believe that your own happiness and interests are more important than social expectations and you make your decisions based on that, you can consider yourself as one of the MGTOW.
MGTOWs often argue that:
there is no need to live as a worker drone for someone else because of your gender;
the slave days of traditional gender roles are over;
everyone deserves to live for themselves;
it is not right to live for others or ask others to live for you;
live and let live.
Throughout history most of the great art, music, science, literature, mathematics and technology was produced by men who would today be classed as MGTOW.
In Japan 60% of Men under the age of 40 describe themselves as "Herbivores" or Grass eaters, which is one version of MGTOW.
