Over the course of this year, we’ve spoken much about the concepts of herd mentality, hypergamy, frivorce, and manbashing amongst women and how these traits work together to create the misandric but gynocentric system currently in place in North America and much of Europe. Indeed, Blurkel had this to say in his recent post;
It is thus with most young men. They have no idea that the sexy hottie buttering him up and fawning over his SMV is intending to take all he has – his name, his game, his fame (if any), his cash, his stash, his freedom, his hobbies, his control, and all of his choices. It all becomes hers as part of the promise she extracts from him to provide for her and “his” children. His role is then to reliably plod after that dangling carrot and bring home all it delivers in trade for the honor of being the “head of the household” (No title has ever been more of an oxymoron!), at least until he drops from the exertion. Then the life insurance payout had better be hefty! How else will she live in the style to which she has become accustomed?
There is little doubt held by the readers and commenters of our space that this is the life that awaits the Average Joe, courtesy of the wiles of Average Jane. But what if it wasn’t? What if enough women were “WGTOWs” that the War of the Sexes could reach a ceasefire agreement?
What is MGTOW?
For better or for worse, it is remarkably difficult to find a definition of Men Going Their Own Way. Not even MGTOW themselves have reached a consensus, much less the rest of the manosphere as a whole. But, we must try (if only so it can be referred back to for ease of discussion), so for the purposes of this post, I’ll be using a combination of the 3 responses from my MGTOW Survey from 2014.
Question 1: What does MGTOW mean to you?
Of 22 respondents, they said it’s:
-5 Adapting to social changes (23%)
-7 A necessary protective stance (32%)
-10 Living according to own standards (45%)
Making use of this information, we can craft a basic definition for MGTOW that encompasses all of the above qualities.
MGTOW is a lifestyle choice made by men who seek to reject, avoid, or reduce exposure to gynocentrism in Western culture. It is a way for a male to protect himself from the sexism that 2nd and 3rd wave Feminism and “social justice” acceptance have created towards men which create a male-hostile environment. Simultaneously, it involves throwing off the social expectations of marriage and receiving “value” based on opposite-sex praise that would impede his legal, financial, and personal freedoms.
So then what would a “WGTOW” be?
Obviously, it cannot simply be a mirror of MGTOW as females do not typically encounter the same legal dangers as males do, and never in equal measures. But I postulate that it can have similar goals to the MGTOW philosophy, which would aid in eliminating many of the issues brought to light within previous posts. Let us see how such a definition might look;
WGTOW is a lifestyle choice made by women who seek to reject, avoid, or reduce exposure to gynocentrism in Western culture. It is a way for a female to fight back against the sexism that 2nd and 3rd wave Feminism and “social justice” acceptance have created which create a female-victimhood environment. Simultaneously, it involves throwing off the social expectations of necessitating marriage and receiving “value” based on same-sex praise that would impede her personal freedoms and ability to think for herself.
Why is this important?
It is important to differentiate “WGTOWs” from other women based on two important factors. Like MGTOW, many had some sort of event occur in their life that made it possible to stop and think about our culture and how it seeks to victimize women whilst condemning men, and usually at once. Having sons and knowing they will have to be very cautious around women, knowing a woman who made a false rape/DV claim for some profit, realizing they received a lesser punishment for a wrongdoing than their male peers, noticing that they weren’t forced to register for Draft but all their male friends had to…these are but a few examples.
Now, you’re likely saying that many women go through these same experiences but do not change. Either they see no real issue with misandry, are so brainwashed that they don’t believe our system can be sexist against males, or actually revel in the fact that they…as a female…may use their biology to gain an upper hand. This is the second factor. “WGTOWs” both see and revolt against the concepts of female superiority and victimization inherent in Western culture. Despite what feminists would have you believe, this does not mean said women are weak, uneducated doormats content to be barefoot, pregnant servants to the men in their lives. Some do have a Captain/First Mate relationship and are Red Pill followwrs, but others are Purple Pill or egalitarian women that act as equals…and neither are unhappy in their roles or think they are “oppressed”.
Instead, they care about the mental, physical, emotional, and sexual health of their lovers, husbands, and boyfriends. They want to see their sons, nephews and grandsons succeed in life and love. They appreciate the good male role models from childhood, whether those men were fathers, uncles, grandfathers, or a teacher/neighbor. In other words, “WGTOWs” buck the current trend of fearing, bashing, or demonizing males simply because they are male.
What can be done to create more WGTOW?
This is where I turn to you. Obviously there are not many “WGTOWs” around. Whereas the general concept of Men Going Their Own Way can be found in both old and recent literature, it is rare (though not impossible) to find anything about Women Going Their Own Way. This is mostly due to the fact that the female of our species is typically more concerned about how the herd/her social group thinks of her than a male counterpart would. Yet as it stands, some do not. These are the true WGTOWs…women who use their intelligence and morals to make personal decisions regardless of what the herd believes…not the feminist version of “independent hear-me-roar womyn” that we all have seen.
So how do we create more women who are capable of thinking for themselves? Is it a matter of Nature, Nurture, or something in between?
