Men Going Their Own Way; A bunch of whiny douchebags who can't get girlfriends because of their blatant hatred of women, but claim it's because they're protesting against the unnamed evils that women routinely commit (see cognitive dissonance). Instead of actually going their own way, MGTOW spend excessive amounts of time complaining on the internet about how women have driven society to ruin, while they masturbate in their moms' basements and do nothing to contribute to society. Some claim that they don't hate all women, just those uppity "western women." They'd be perfectly fine with dating one of those exotic, submissive "eastern women" who would do anything they asked (see stereotype).

It's the equivalent of a five-year-old trying hold their breath until they get what they want, only they're being incredibly unclear about what it is that they want and no one cares if they pass out from oxygen deprivation.
MGTOW: "Waa! Why can't I get a girlfriend? I'm such a nice guy. Women are such evil, stupid bitches. I'm sick of all you c*nts not blowing me or cooking my dinner. I'm gonna go my own way!

Woman: "...Oh no. Don't not date me. You're such a charmer. Staying away from women is the most effective way of punishing our misdeeds, please don't!" *suppresses laughter*

MGTOW: "It's too late, harpy!" *marries Hatsuni Miku body pillow*

Men/Man Going Their Own Way.

MGTOW is basically 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.
Male 1: Dude, why don't you have a girl friend?

Male 2: Its not for me bro, I'm a MGTOW.

Men Going Their Own Way

They are men who do not live for others anymore they live unapologetic lifestyle only for themselves. That means no kids no wife no problems in life. Some become mgtow after they already had kids or been married and they pay for their mistakes, later on in life in divorce courts.

Because mgtow feel betrayed as if society and women don’t give shit about them. They only view them as expendable containers, ATM machines, and sperm donors for reproduction purposes.

So as a response to toxic selfish society, they become selfish assholes who don’t care about nothing but their own existence.

And live only for themselves !
Male 1: Dude, why don't you have a wife?

Male 2: Because women see you only as child support and alimony paychecks, I'm not that stupid to get married, I'm MGTOW!

Acronym for "men going their own way." These are men that give corrupt divorce courts the middle finger by not getting married, thus never getting screwed over. Traditionalist men tend to make fun of them, up until the day their ex-wife steals his heart and his money, then MGTOWs get the last laugh.
Divorced guy: Dude, my ex-wife stole my house so I'm homeless.
MGTOW: Dude, you should've either gone foreign or MGTOW, man.

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.
Guy's parents ask: Are you gonna get married buy a house and start a family?
Guy answers: "NO" I'm M.G.T.O.W
