MGTOW as Adaptation


Within the varied groups and individuals that make up the manosphere there has been a growing divide over MGTOW or ‘Men Going Their Own Way’.

This is due to MGTOW’s rejection of the traditional expectation of men to be the protector and provider of women and children and instead focus on their own needs. MGTOW is viewed by its supporters as the only sensible option in an increasingly misandric society that favours women over men in almost every situation.

MGTOW argue by doing this they avoid being exploited by institutions such as the legal system that have adopted a feminist viewpoint.

Critics deceptively paint MGTOW as simply the opposite of feminism which will only result in more alienation between men and women and lead to societal collapse.

Some commentators have also accused MGTOW of been like a cult that attacks anybody that criticises it while men who identify as a MGTOW believe they are individuals making individual choices.

One solution to this conflict is to reassess the expectations that are placed on men by societies and how they have developed over time. Men’s traditional role as a provider is important to consider when thinking about this.

For most of human history resources were scarce, work was very physical and death from starvation or disease was always possible.

Being able to find or generate resources would have increased the chances of surviving in this environment and men would have been better equipped to do so than women due to their superior physical strength and not having to worry about getting pregnant or miscarrying.

Women, however, had an advantage in being able to carry offspring and having less eggs to men’s sperm which meant that they could be choosy with which men they mated with.

As a result, men would have been more successful surviving but women were essential for reproduction. Therefore both men and women needed each other to increase their own chances of surviving and reproducing. In such circumstances, if women had wanted to discard one man for another or try to go it alone they would have been in serious trouble.

While sex roles have a biological basis, the world they emerged from has changed in such a way that men’s role as provider has been taken for granted.

In the modern world resources are far more abundant and most jobs available are not as physically demanding as they once were.

Advances in technology and healthcare have also made the world a less risky place at least in the West which has led to a change in attitude towards the role of men as providers.

In a famine, the man who provides food is a hero but when food is plentiful the man who provides it is a delivery boy.

As well, women can now choose to work full time, part time or be completely supported by a man as they no longer rely exclusively on men to earn money for them.

Moreover, governments willingly provide mothers with welfare payments if there is no man around. Women no longer rely on men for survival to the extent they once did but men still rely on women for reproduction.

Man’s role as provider is also viewed at the expense of their role as father as men are defined more by their absence working rather than their presence within families.

It is often said that traditionally men went out to work while women raised the children which places mothers inside the family and fathers outside of it.

Parenting and mothering have become almost interchangeable and there isn’t much exploration into the relationship fathers have with their children that is distinct from the mother’s.

This attitude is evident in the family courts as judges typically award custody of children to mothers after a divorce in the assumption they are maintaining the family unit with the only difference being the father no longer living in the home.

If a man only needs to provide, what does it matter if he doesn’t see his own children? Of course, if men only needed to be providers for women and children then fatherlessness wouldn’t have all the negative consequences we see in our societies.

A mentality of ‘provider as servant’ has developed in Western countries with men’s contributions been seen primarily as materialistic and directed towards their masters – women.

Servants have to prove their worth by having somebody to work for whereas masters are able to use servants to do jobs they don’t want to do.

In a similar fashion, men are expected to do all the jobs women don’t want to do and be grateful for women for giving them attention or be discarded for a better option.

Men are also expected to potentially sacrifice their life to protect random women if they are in danger. It doesn’t matter what or how much women demand, men are ‘real men’ if meet their every desire.

Young men, in particular, are expected to ‘prove themselves’ to young women to get their appreciation, but this ignores the fact that young women have such power over men because they are offering something in return: their youth and beauty.

Feminism encouraged women to make increasing demands of men and mainstream conservatives still expect men to meet their traditional obligations regardless of this.

Many men have a servant mentality because they think that they are worthless unless they have a woman for whom they are working for and being chivalrous. As Bernard Chapin has put it, “when a woman has a need, a man must accede.”

The solution is neither to dismiss sex roles entirely nor simply return to the roles that were functional in the past without taking into account the current environment we live in.

Instead we need to acknowledge sex differences but challenge the perceptions that have developed from them.

The real reason men provided resources for women was not to justify their own existence to the superior female sex but because women were unable to do so themselves.

Since these burdens have been partly lifted by technology, men shouldn’t place their value solely on seeking female approval.

It wasn’t a man’s primary responsibility to provide resources for women but to provide for his children. Women were provided for if they provided something in return.

The true role of men in society is to provide something that women cannot provide themselves.

This originally included resources but more importantly it was men’s own masculinity. Women may now have more independence but they can’t provide masculine strengths to complement their feminine weaknesses (and vice versa for men).

They cannot be fathers to their children and they cannot bring a masculine viewpoint to a situation. This means that however societies develop technologically men always have something to contribute to them.

If men are aware of this they can avoid having a servant mentality and instead adopt a ‘provider as master’ mentality.

This mentality comes from the knowledge that men have far more worth than whether they are capable of meeting female demands.

It does not mean wanting to rule over women but thinking like a master rather than a servant. Much like a doctor or a teacher a master in a relationship provides for the other person something they cannot obtain themselves and so can make demands for his service.

A master can feel worthy in himself and not be defined by serving others. A master does not view a woman as a superior who he must placate and so can make judgements about them without fearing rejection.

A master can therefore defend himself knowing he has worth and not fall apart when he is shamed for not wanting to be a servant.

If more men thought this way they would be less likely to simply accept the unreasonable behaviour of women and we could make changes to society that would make MGTOW less of a viable option. Although MGTOW could be viewed as rejecting marriage and children I believe it is primarily to reject the ‘provider as servant mentality’ I have laid out.

APA’s War on Men

Welcome to the Male Defender MOLON LABE podcast. Today we’re discussing the APA’s War on Men.

Here’s there statement on their changes. It’s titled, “APA issues first-ever guidelines for practice with men and boys.”

Getting that message out to men—that they’re adaptable, emotional and capable of engaging fully outside of rigid norms—is what the new guidelines are designed to do. And if psychologists can focus on supporting men in breaking free of masculinity rules that don’t help them, the effects could spread beyond just mental health for men, McDermott says. “If we can change men,” he says, “we can change the world.”

I don’t want to be changed. I’m a proud man who wants to save Western Civilization and I know you are too.

MGTOW Calling

Not long ago, 23-year old Zach Hing gained his sea legs in the modern counter-cultural revolution. He tore down ancient rigging, stepped into the crow’s nest, and wielded his keyboard like a swashbuckler, hacking away at anti-male propaganda and the shackles of a society that has long treated men like third-class citizens – and worse.

As soon as he began uploading his “red-pill” videos, he attracted attention, gaining a huge following in a matter of weeks.

He spoke openly about seemingly sacrosanct topics such as feminism, the stereotyping of Asian men, and the need for a border wall. In communicating freely and espousing truth, he achieved what he had previously only dreamed of, including, first and foremost, the liberation of his inner voice and the joy of expressing himself uncensored.

In many ways, Zach represents the millions of men who are yearning to be free, who want to know reality as it as, not as others maintain. They are candidates for new pirates who desire a broadside and to leave the land lubbers behind.

For eons, young males have been wandering in fear and darkness, told they are woman-beaters, rapists and oppressors, without regard for either their feelings or the facts. Now, one by one, they are seeing the light.

They are joining in a rebellion with others of their ilk, rescuing comrades in arms from a fate that is both unjust and undeserved.

A revolution’s beginnings

Knowingly or not, Zach has been red-pilled. As in the cult film, The Matrix, he has awakened to the reality behind a façade that continues to distract those who have not yet reached this point.

His voice has joined with that of others, buckos in a noble quest for equality, justice and healthy masculinity.

Sadly, the turnabout has taken much longer than it should. Dubbed “Men Going Their Own Way” (MGTOW), this collective search for truth eventually evolved into something more – a whole new way of thinking and a genuine lifestyle choice.

Finally, men were beginning to realize they did not need to succumb to the unfairness and abuse that society was imposing on them. They were deciding in favor of self-determination, where they could choose, if it suited them, life outside the confines of oppressive relationships or without wenches at all.

For many men, the awakening brought on by MGTOW (and other such recognitions) reflected understanding of the evolutionarily-adapted traits that women use against men for their own advantage.

They capitalized on differences in biology, benefited themselves at the expense of men, and engaged in reprehensible – and allegedly acceptable – behavior such as hypergamy and making false accusations against males, no matter how much pain and suffering it caused.

Men are wired differently than women

Feminists might say otherwise, but the fact is that men and women vary in many ways.

For one thing, biology predisposes females to prioritize socialization, nurturing, and securing their own security and protection.

Consequently, they spend lots of time and energy talking and gossiping with other females about males, often with the intention of courting and manipulating them.

They bond over discussions of romance, marriage and divorce, and eventually, humiliation, aggression, and sexual and physical assault.

Boys and men, in contrast, are built differently. They are programmed to focus on objects and systems, as well as how they can protect themselves against threats that might arise.

When they want to share thoughts and feelings with others, they tend to prefer different sorts of interactions than females do, such as what you might find on the Internet.

Many have also learned the hard way that when discussing certain notions, it is best to do so in an Internet forum and manner that does not expose them to consequences that may extend well beyond relationships they may have with the opposite sex.

If they say something – however heartfelt or truthful it may be – that goes against what feminist zealots and others in society believe, they risk suffering all sorts of fallout.

Against this backdrop, it is not surprising that, in the early days, at least, MGTOW communities attracted the attention of those who wanted truths to be told, and those who wanted to hear more about the way things are.

However, those with closed minds or who were not the intended audience were often up in arms about such honesty.

Many maintained, for instance, that men should stop whining about being the breadwinners; they should just shut up and bring home the bacon.

Lefties attack

For some of them, the real cause for alarm was the threat to self-serving, anti-male agendas. Left-wing radicals, fearing that the fresh and enlightened voices would erode support for their cause, went on the offensive.

They labeled MGTOW as a misogynist hate group, bent on abusing male privilege by speaking out. They flagged videos and leveled harsh criticism, which led to videos being removed, shadow banned or restricted; they flooded MGTOW activists with hate mail.

As a result, many MGTOW supporters lost friendships, had their careers threatened, and were left with fractured families, largely because of their insidious agendas.

The Southern Richman’s Lie Center foolishly listed MGTOW as a male supremacist hate group.

In a sense, this alleged upholder of equality were asserting that since society teaches that men are patriarchal oppressors, misogynists, and rapists, alternative views must, by definition, reflect some an anti-society agenda.

And yet, new sailors’ voices kept joining; discovering a life of liberty; their own Davy Jones’ Locker.

A growing phenomenon

In fact, the MGTOW marvel has been going from strong to sturdier in recent years, gaining adherents and recognition worldwide.

Countless thousands of supporters and knowledgeable individuals have posted videos on YouTube and content on other sites that is drawing out ideas from the dark cracks of shame, bigotry and political correctness and into the brightness for all to see.

Even the major media, long sympathetic to feminist and left-wing propaganda, has begun to take note. For example, in late 2018, a segment on the CNN show, This Is Life with Lisa Ling, featured an interview with MGTOW’s Big John and Jerry Liu.

Though some criticized the show, maintaining it was only broadcast to attract eyeballs, many felt that MGTOW was fairly presented as a legitimate group of men abhorring discrimination by the legal system and society more broadly.

Set Sail for Full Mainstream

Such developments have helped bolster red-pill awareness in a great many corners. Each day, we hear celebrities and influencers such as Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens and #walkaway advocate Will Witt voicing elements of the MGTOW philosophy.

More recently, many female YouTubers have also come out in support.

For now, however, Canadian clinical psychologist and professor of psychology Jordan Peterson continues to be the most influential public figure speaking out against the cultural war on men and the insidious and pathological theories of patriarchy and rape culture.

In defending against this threat, Professor Peterson encourages men to heal themselves with a life of meaning and purpose.


It has been a long road, but a growing number of people, from all walks of life, are doing just that.

They are hearing the MGTOW message and turning their backs on inequity.

They are no longer keeping silent about male discrimination and tragic abuse.

They are waking up to ideas that had once been spoken only in whispers and relishing them, out loud, as their own.

For those of you who have not yet signed on, it is time to seize the moment.

In some cases, this may mean emulating Zach Hing, who makes it clear that he has not chosen the MGTOW lifestyle but finds real value in its mission and wisdom.

For others, it will be the proverbial moment of truth –when you live the life you deserve and were destined to live. Either way, do not hesitate: stand up tall, raise your sword, and join the rebellion!
