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 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

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

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!

"Men Going Their Own Way" The whiny reactionary male equivalent of the feminazi.

Usually one of the following types:
- men who've come from families with a horrible mother, perceived as maltreating the father "That bitch left us and so daddy had to drink and beat us instead!!".
- naive men who had 1 relationship which failed due to their poor judge or character or lack of it themselves, proof that all women are evil.
- divorcees who perceived their wife got the better deal e.g. she has a restraining order out on me and I can't see my kid ... "all because I busted her jaw in a fight that one time!"
- 40 year old virgins who want to feel proud about their status by demonising women, when conventional norms make them feel ashamed.

They characterise women as:
- unfaithful and always on the lookout for a better mate;
- gold digging and only interested in their money, even though they are often penniless, the fact their ex-wife who worked 70 hours a week and did the housework plagued them to get a freakin' job is proof of this
- "disobedient" and "wanting to be treated like a human being and shit"

They believe that when women's rights are on par with those espoused by Islamic extremism, all will be good with the world. Their ideal relationship would like a very boring BDSM, without all that weird shit, sex and stuff and the woman more or less serving them as a slave, tending to their needs like momma never did.
See that girl over there. I bet she'd love to go with me but I bet she'd insist I washed every week. One of the reasons I'm MGTOW.

lonely angry rejected men who needs to believe that the reason they don't have love in life is that they don't desire it. because god forbid they work on some self-improvement to make themselves more attractive. they need to believe women reject them strictly because they're bitches, and not because there are possibly any other good reasons to do so.
No really, I'm alone by choice, not by circumstance. No I refuse to shave or bath, MGTOW FTW

A group of men who are angry at the fact that women are finally taking their place in society.
If a woman has a better economic and social status than a man, MGTOW views this wrong.
If a woman decides to get divorced, they view this wrong.
If a man gets married to a woman, they make fun of him.
If a woman decides her own destiny, they view this wrong.
