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 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 who are right to dislike feminism, but do not realize they are hurting traditional women and families the most. Instead of trying to find a traditional young woman who loves them, they focus on the promiscuous, unloving couples who more often get divorced. They create a negative attitude towards marriage for themselves and decide to avoid it. This will be very damaging to Western Civilization if it continues. Marriage means more right wing voters, a strong bond, and happy successful children.
"I think mgtow is a wimpy move. He should be able to find a good woman if he's a good man."
