From mgtow.com:

Quote
M.G.T.O.W – Men Going Their Own Way is a statement of self-ownership, where the modern man preserves and protects his own sovereignty above all else. It is the manifestation of one word: “No”. Ejecting silly preconceptions and cultural definitions of what a “man” is. Looking to no one else for social cues. Refusing to bow, serve and kneel for the opportunity to be treated like a disposable utility. And, living according to his own best interests in a world which would rather he didn’t.

Mmm, some of those buzzwords do sound strangely familiar. I wonder where I heard them before...

Each one of you young men is a jewel, and deserves a doting female bound to him for life.

I swear Cyrillic, ialmisry and his ilk have found their refuge. There evidently plenty of sites for bitter divorcees to make themselves feel better, and also ugly men who are angry at the fact they can't attract a woman.

Everything is all starting to make sense.

These supposed "men's rights" activists on the internet are ****** wildin.

If you are being personal, you may as well be accurate. Cyrillic and Prof. Almisry are both quite handsome.

Or to put it in the vernacular -- What's your deal?

Everyone on the internet apparently looks like David Gandy.

But seriously, I hope people aren't that naive to really believe some of this crap.

And another thing that's scary that there are real people posting and have real jobs in real life.

I'm glad they post pictures of themselves, you can spot rapists pretty easily.

I never said either are ugly, I'm saying you have two categories of men who post this hateful misogynistic drivel. Your uglies and your bitter divorcees that feel they have been screwed by the system (and their exes)

I would remarry if the right woman came along.  I'd even go against my belief system and marry a previously married woman with kids.

I'm told to stay out of relationships to avoid dealing with stress, mainly financial.  If a man finds his soul mate, then a majority of stress is manageable and even enjoyable.  If you can't poke fun at your own situation, you won't be much fun to anyone else.

nothing, I hope all is well in Pittsburgh.   :)

Well, if you're a Mormon who believes that marriage is eternal, I can see how such a belief system might come about.
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

I'm not a Mormon.  I used to be conservative in my belief until I got involved with a woman who had children with other men.  So much for my conservatism.   :P

Be thankful whatever you lack in looks you make up for it with intellect. Plenty others have neither. At your age I was an imbecile and now a moron. Being the unobservant idiot that I was at 20 made for some bad mistakes in regards to who I dated.

Oh well, I hope you don't aspire to date a woman like the one in your avatar.

You are just outside this age group iirc, what's it like to be married and finding the time to outpost throughout the day we so called eternal adolescents? How else do you spend your time while married?

Consider the source bro . . . Sides don't you spend every moment with a room full of women? Seemed like that was the case in nearly every photo you posted.

And when did Isa find his way outside the public high school system, which he did nothing but criticize till he couldn't make it in academia?

Or is this title being used in the same way the other Latinist around here uses it?

Cyrillic and Prof. Almisry are both quite handsome.

Jolly good, the amount of people complimenting my looks has increased to one.
Be thankful whatever you lack in looks you make up for it with intellect. Plenty others have neither. At your age I was an imbecile and now a moron. Being the unobservant idiot that I was at 20 made for some bad mistakes in regards to who I dated.

Oh well, I hope you don't aspire to date a woman like the one in your avatar.

How charming the naivete with which he posts in the past tense!

Please don't project meta-debates onto me.

But you are a divorcé, just to be clear, and you would not hesitate to offer yourself in marriage to a never-before-married woman?

You are just outside this age group iirc, what's it like to be married and finding the time to outpost throughout the day we so called eternal adolescents? How else do you spend your time while married?

You'll find out someday, Norman. Someday.

"As to the fatalism of those who believe that man must be a slave to the ‘spirit of the age,’ it is disproved by the experience of every Christian worthy of the name, for the Christian life is nothing if it is not a struggle against the spirit of every age for the sake of eternity."

The language in many of the most recent posts has grown too insulting to specific posters on this thread, so this thread is now locked pending further review.
