There is no other way I see it.
MGTOW is going to keep growing….
“Misery loves company….you just want men to join you in your misery.”
No you angry feminist….
The reality is that MGTOW is the rational choice for most men.
Let’s break it down….starting from the outset of a young man’s life.
The young man is raised in such a way that he is groomed to pursue a few things:
A family. (A princess wife and children)
That was the standard for a long time….but the problem is for a lot of guys that’s just not a rational path anymore.
The Three Aspirations
The education–>Take on $1,000s in debt to receive a piece of paper which does not guarantee a job, but rather “looks nice on a resume.” Go on to compete in a workforce filled with gender quotas and an array of corporate hoops to jump through.
No free man aspires to be a corporate wage slave (at least I don’t).
On to the next aspiration…
Career–>Nothing wrong with pursuing a career….a man has to eat.
Let’s be real though….the reason men want a career is to provide bread (for their families). And it just so happens….that that really isn’t happening.
Just look at the birth rates.
It’s cheap to live as a single man. Food, shelter, clothing.
If you have no debt….a career with nice income can really have a man living well in 2020….
And that bring us to our last aspiration,
Wife and kids–>Now I am not here to tell you that it’s impossible to have a wife and kids. If you find a conservative woman from a good family who would make a decent mother….by all means.
More babies keeps the species going after all.
I’m just saying that here in the west (USA…cough cough) we have this thing called feminism.
This virus has turned women into all but good mothers.
Not to mention the advent of social media and online dating. (We’ll talk about that more in just a bit).
And how could I forget….the old bait and switch of divorce.
This is how it goes….
80% of men wait their turn for that one special woman of their dreams….”the princess”.
And right around 30 years of age that princess just happens to magically fall in the 80% man’s lap.
“Finally”, the man thinks to himself….“my chance has arrived! Where have you been all of my life?”
Well…she was riding the carousel through her 20’s….she was chasing the men who put her at the bottom of their priority list.
But no worries, she saved her used up body for you Mr. 80% man.
“All you have to do is legally commit half of your assets to me and i’m yours forever Mr. 80%.”
And there’s the rub.
For the wife that is going to take my kids and half of my shit?
This is the conclusion men are coming to: “Why would I play that game?”
And that’s the whole point of this post.
Now I could be wrong, but I believe MGTOW as a philosophy is in its early growth stage.
A lot of guys may not even know what MGTOW is (that’s fine)…but they will opt for the MGTOW lifestyle by default as the rational choice.
Those aspirations that were once rewarding for men to pursue just don’t seem so desirable with all the present caveats (gender quotas, toxic dating cultures, divorce, etc).
And yes….the dating culture needs to be discussed.
The Modern Dating Market (Cesspool)
First…I have to say I see a lot of couple walking around like this….
What in the world would make this fit man with no disabilities date an obese, unhealthy woman.
“Oh mah god Mikey….she PrObuBly HaS a GrEAT PERSuNaLiTy.”
The reason this happens is because of our current dating culture.
Simping is the norm….see my article, On Simps.
Men are chasing and actively competing for the bottom 20% of women.
“Why would they do that though?”
Because our culture has been set up in such a way that men and women are encouraged to pursue their base instincts.
In the case of men…spread my seed to anything that moves. (read: simping)
In the case of women...be hypergamous and spread my legs for the chads that game me just right.
“You’re such an incel Mikey.”
This is the reality of the current dating market. There are no social pressures in the culture to curb these base instincts.
Women who sleep around are celebrated as “liberated” for doing so.
Men who bang fatties…“well at least you’re getting laid bro.”
So what happens is you get a bunch of lowly women (bottom 20%) with hyperinflated egos thinking they deserve only the most perfect man….
The other 80% of women compete for the 10% of chads or take their talents to instagram, onlyfans, and snapchat to cash in on simpenomics.
And undeniably a large percentage of men get boxed out….a race to the bottom.
So in this culture a man wanting to find a mate has a few options:
- “I can compete for the bottom 20% of women….lowering my standards at the chance of a family (not forgetting the divorce statistics of course).”–>Don’t ever choose this option.
- “I can go full red pill and try to be Chad…eventually I’ll earn the affections of an 80% woman (who is broken/brainwashed by feminism and will likely cuck me).”–>Risky but preferable to #1
- “I can simp away my time and attention to at least get some sex every now and then.”—–>Again, no.
- I can focus on my own goals, hobbies, and not prioritize dating (MGTOW).–>We are getting somewhere.
It’s easy to see why men are choosing 4.
And this toxicity is even more pronounced in a COVID-19, digitalized world….
Online dating becomes the norm.
Social media becomes the primary means of socializing.
More women posting how much money some simp sent her for existing….
Demoralization of men ( read: The Demoralization of Men)+ Cesspool Dating Market + Digital World = MGTOW bull run.
How much more can men lower their standards?
How much thirstier can men get?
Time will tell.
If we do a quick search on google trends:
Google trends tells that MGTOW is currently in a recent down trend.
This is likely due to the recent quarantine by Reddit….and other tech companies censoring MGTOW content (see youtube).
I expect this trend to reverse in a big way.
There are just too many forces working against men.
Leaving most of us to choose the only rational path:
The only self respecting choice.
Talk to you guys soon.
