Top definition
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 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 is an acronym for 'Men Going Their Own Way'.

Formal: An identity for males whom value singledom. MGTOW represents a life focused on attaining purpose, physical and mental self-development, and freedom from the traditional social expectations of males. Often this manifests as self-actualisation through meaningful work, self-directed learning, and non-monogamous mating habits.

More commonly, it is an understanding from experience, deduction, and cost-benefit analysis of the drawbacks of entering into marriage and having children. In other words, an understanding of divorce statistics, maintenance fees, child access law, separation expenses - not to mention the emotional turbulence.

Pursued by men who are usually self-sufficient and happy without all the above.
Bro 1: "Bro, you need an intervention. You're single, only investing into your own vision, and only dedicating yourself to your favourite pastimes. Time for you to man-up and settle for a life of restless servitude like us!"
Bro 2: "Im O.K. bro, 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/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; 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*
