It’s amusing to watch when a group formed largely out of anger falls upon itself. I’ve been observing a rather angry exchange on a post critiquing MGTOWs and some of the irony present in these comments (and the ignorance as well) manages to be both frightening and amusing. There are the unsurprising and frequent attacks on women and feminism, and attacks from and to MGTOWs. It’s an interesting little exchange. First up, it’s important to take a closer look at the post which has started this debate – I’m not going to repeat the description of MGTOWs from the site – instead, let’s jump straight to Jack Ronin’s first paragraph:
While there is a lot I agree with here. Especially for younger males, this opting out of cultural norms can be very important so they can focus on improving themselves. The problems which arise when someone fully embraces this ideology, is that ultimately it’s just a form of feminism for men.
Simply blaming women for all that ails them is a piss weak way of handling adversity. Like the shrieking feminists they claim to hate, MGTOW guys end up behaving exactly like them.
Also ridiculously weak is the allergic reaction some of these types have to any suggestion that they aren’t living up to any of the qualities which make a real man. Use this wording on some of them and watch the hilarious meltdown they have. What does this remind anyone of?
You guessed it, the very same childish, infantile reactions sjw’s and their ilk vomit out at any critiques of their beloved narrative. Feminists loathe the idea that they must change themselves. I have seen the exact same responses from MGTOW types when I dared to insist that much if not all the problems associated with current female behavior is due largely to weak men themselves.
Who do you think allows women to behave this way? Who cast their votes to allow the weaker, solipsistic sex the right to vote in their disenfranchisement? You guessed it. Males did!
Emphasis mine. MGTOWs do not behave like feminists. MGTOWs are not interested in equality. They are usually not interested in going their own way, since they bash women, and feminism, and even other men at every opportunity. They want to have their cake and eat it. It is true that there are extreme examples of feminists who call for harm on men, but it can drawn into question as to whether they are truly feminists, since they ignore the definition of feminism and have morphed into misandrist territory. To use them as the overriding example is to be incredibly short-sighted.
I’ve placed some further emphasis on a couple of phrases that are particularly interesting and revealing of the mindset of the author. There is this ‘real man’ nonsense. The ‘weaker sex’ rubbish. The sort of poisonous attitudes that reaffirm tired stereotypes don’t help anyone, whether male or female.
That’s about all I have to say on the subject for now, but check out the rest of the article, and the comments – it’s entertaining if nothing else.!
