MGTOW, The Real BACKLASH has arrived! Almost 25 years ago I began to warn that if feminists did not stop their hate male campaign that there would be a backlash. But the “new rage” women did not want to hear this.


When I explained that I was trying to prevent a backlash, they responded, as they typically do to any disagreement, with accusations of misogyny, calling me a rape apologist and even worse. The death threats, though, were actually kind of funny.

Now the backlash is here. Not with angry mobs or protesters marching down the streets, but with millions of men who refuse to have children or get married. It’s not that men weren’t already doing this, but that in the beginning we were so few. But now we are many and our backlash has a name: Men Going Their Own Way, or MGTOW.

I would have liked to prevent this. To avoid the decades of broken homes, the millions of women and men whose lives have been ruined by a philosophy of hate. But it was unavoidable.

Feminism is part of a larger effort to destroy the middle class. Some feminists know this. In The Dialectic of Sex Shulamith Firestone made it clear. As for the rest, they are merely useful idiots who serve in a war men cannot win by conventional means as violence only adds to the feminist cause.

So we withdraw. Some men are angry. We all start out angry. But eventually most of us accept it. There is no reason to hate. Most women are unwitting pawns, and while many of them are a lost cause, we know enough who don’t ride the carousel or indulge in obnoxious behavior but are genuinely good people to give us reason to remain open to the possibilities.

Some men are so angry that they would exclude women, but recently I shared with Diana Davison (aka Feminism LOL) that I view MGTOW as a kind of John Galt strike in which there is room for the Dagny Taggarts if they choose to join us. And there have always been such, like Cathy Young, Christina Hoff Sommers, Diana Davison, Ashe Schow, Miss Misanthropist, Karen Straughan and Cassy the Anti-feminist.

Every movement has extreme elements, and MGTOW is rapidly becoming a movement. As Diana pointed out in some of her videos, YouTube is home base, and it reminds me of the old Christian Slater movie, Pump Up the Volume, about a pirate radio station.

We don’t have to pirate the radio waves, but as the progressives move to impose government control over the web, we will have to adapt, or lose the medium that makes the rapid growth of our movement possible.

This is one of the many reasons why we need women in the movement. We need every ally to finish this task, for it will not be done soon, but will require decades to complete.

    This was a great blog and I really hope some of the more unreasonable members of the manosphere take it to heart.

    I must disagree. Women have no business in this movement other then to breakdown its momentum. They cannot be trusted. NAWALTS are a myth. If you ever find yourself believing otherwise just punch yourself in the balls. A WGHOW is something totally different.

    When women disagree with something, quite often, they’re really agreeing in reverse.

    MGTOW is increasingly a phenomenon which is found in the basic response men have to the modern world, even if they never heard the term.

    Always absolving women, since the dawn of time:

    It ain´t their fault, it is their nature! No, their genes! No, the Devils ( always male, never female). No, the aliens! No, a serpent!
    They all are marvellous, but they suffer brain wash.
    YEah, she did it, but let us get her free, for who has his ( not “her”) slate clean? Gospel
    So, we are always the culprits. If they have been brainwashed, obviously the brain washers are us, malignant men.
    So, either they are never guilty of nothing, or if they are the only real crime is to punish them.

    Lets cut to the chase. If you try to push a man around enough…. eventually, *around* becomes *away*. Try to use shaming language on us? We are MGTOW, we eat shaming language like tic tacs.

    Rome was started by MGTOWs. There were no women initially. MGTOWs will build a new society and when it prospers good women will join the MGTOWs who then will cease to be MGTOWs. The old society will rot away.
