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.

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.

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: Males that choose to control their life on how they see fit and don't take bullshit from women or the corrupt society since both are filled with evil pricks like feminists. Men who also don't give women money because they know that those bitches will abuse them for the cheddar in their wallet. Men who also realize that marriage is a contract that favors women during divorce courts and children custody. Men that have knowledge of the toxicness of female nature.
Guy: You should get a girlfriend.

MGTOW: Fuck that shit! I ain't gonna let a bitch take all my shit just to get a little pussy!

Men Going Their Own Way - Males who don't want to grow up and play nice with women, so they act like Eric Cartman when he says "Screw you guys, I'm going home." MGTOW members dedicate themselves to a lifetime without romantic relationships with women but full of masturbation, you know, like priests and NAMBLA members.
Dorkus Malorkus can't get laid because he doesn't believe in hygiene and doesn't know how to speak or treat a woman. So, instead of improving himself, he's decided to blame feminism and is proclaiming he's part of MGTOW.
