They call themselves MGTOW, which stands for Men Going Their Own Way and is pronounced “MIG-tau.” They reject the MRA label; in the words of a MGHOW calling himself Smitty the Great, “We won’t be their cannon fodder in a war we know they can’t win.” Instead, they’re mostly militant about never dating, cohabitating with and/or marrying members of the opposite sex. But they seethe in the same way as MRAs, Trump supporters and other men terrified of a world where their dominance no longer goes unquestioned. Their complaints run the gamut from paranoid to frankly bizarre—for example, some believe women shouldn’t be allowed to drive. The Saudis would approve.
