Inaugural Post

Welcome to my inaugural blog post!  This blog will document my journey into MGTOW.  For those not familiar with MGTOW, it is an acronym for Men Going Their Own Way.  If you have never heard of this movement, here are some of the main points:

MGTOW - Men Going Their Own Way is a label that has been given to naturally occurring phenomena that takes place consciously or unconsciously among men.

MGTOW is the statement of self-ownership and saying that only you have the right to decide what your goals in life should be.

It is saying that, as a man I will not surrender my will to the social expectations of women and society, because both have become hostile against masculinity.

MGTOWs often argue that:
-there is no need to live as a worker drone for someone else because of your gender;
-the slave days of traditional gender roles are over;
-everyone deserves to live for themselves;
-it is not right to live for others or ask others to live for you;
-live and let live.

MGTOW seems to piss off feminists, so all I gotta say is .... BONUS!!

MGTOW is not about WHAT YOU DO, it is about WHY YOU DO IT. If you are doing something because this is your own real will, then you are going your own way. If you are doing the same thing because of social expectations, then you are going the way of others.

Level 1: Situational awareness
This level includes men who are aware of the realities that face them in society, and yet deem the risks acceptable to have a go at playing the game...

Level 2: Rejection of long-term relationships
Man who rejects all form of long-term traditional romantic relationships, including but not limited to marriage, cohabitation of any sort which might be classified as common-law marriage, picking up for a single mother's children, or any action which might be used in court to turn him into a legal servant...

Level 3: Rejection of short-term relationships
Man who rejects all form of traditional romantic relationships, including dating, one-night stands, etc. Any contact with opposite sex is kept strictly professional...

Level 4: Minimalism
Men who have decided that it is not in their best interest to waste life by working at jobs they don’t like so they could buy things they don’t need. He will not produce more than is necessary for his own individual survival and acceptable standard of living...

How did I get here?

Divorce followed by year of dating 'quality women'.

Essential. In this politically correct world, expressing your views can get you into trouble when it comes to making a living.  What may be the bitter truth to one person, can easily be labelled as misogyny by another.  Also I don't want my sons' privacy invaded, nor suffer any potential discrimination on my account.  People tend to jump to conclusions and hold the view of guilt by association too easily these days.  I'm not sure exactly where the baby boomers went wrong, but they really have raised a generation of hyper-sensitive pussies. As for political correctness, when you peel back the layers it is simply about thought control.  Control the language and you control the thoughts.

I will also offer up some real-life examples, but I will change the names to keep the privacy of others private. 

I've already come up with an motto for my blog!
They say the biggest purchase of your life will be a house.  They're wrong, it's a wedding ring.
