I have seen this video in the recommended list to the side of a number of videos that I’ve watched for months now. I’ve not viewed it until I saw it again in comments on Dalrock’s blog this morning. Why hadn’t I watched it? Because me going MOW has nothing to do with hurting women, it’s about looking at the reality of the world around me and choosing the path that makes me happiest of the paths available. I don’t care what women think about MGTOW. If they were doing anything about the concerns of men…I might be interested. stop laughing at the back (the very concept is laughable)
The fact that if enough guys do this, society will start hurting and might actually starting to give a toss about men? *shrug* might help some other guys. So that’s nice. But it’s nothing to do with me and my choices. I will use my resources to make my life as good as is possible. I have been taught that any other path is detrimental to my life. Society will just take and take and take…never any gratitude, at most a grudging return of part of the resources taken from me as long as no woman is harmed (even in her fevered imagination), never any concern except to get my vote. Even then the political class from the local council on up to the UN doesn’t care about men even enough to lie about caring about men. And that’s why I don’t care right on back.
The opposite of love isn’t hate, it’s indifference.
Anyway, the video
This isn’t our enemy, I think that it’s the female version of a male incel. The difference being male incels can’t get sex and love, she can’t get a personal white knight (which she might actually return the love of sincerely). If you need to be persuaded to spend the whole fourteen odd minutes of the video, skip forward to the eight minute mark and listen for a minute. My impression from listening to this video is that I was listening to a sincere person.
Her problem? She understands why men are turning from women (in committed relationships) and going their own way because of the actions of women and society…she understands…and she is getting hurt in the process right along side the men.
But at the end of the day I haven’t much sympathy to give. All I can say is, without any schadenfreude, effectively…welcome to the world of men. Your talk about not being valued for anything except sex is the exact mirror of men’s only being valued as providers, protectors and a source of proxy social status for women.
I don’t get joy from the likes of her ending up alone, but caring about it has been beaten out of me by experience. I know full well that if society acted to correct the problems that both some women and many men have…it would be to address the issues of women only. How do I know this? Because it’s what happens pretty much every damn time.
