I consider myself a second wave feminist (that's the 'more extreme', unsexy kind) and I'm actually kind of okay with MTGOW. I don't agree at all with their motivations or general attitudes about women (being one), but I do understand the emotional need to have separate spaces. Second wave (or, if you will, radical) feminism encompasses a lot of views that might be considered politically incorrect as well. Female separatism (the logical opposite of MTGOW), for example, is considered to be an idea that is within our range of acceptable debate. Indeed, some of our more noted thought leaders, like Sheila Jeffreys and Janice Raymond, are female separatists.
In a time where some MRAs (like these "incel" creeps) are apparently willing to kill us en masse for the right to rape on the theory that sex is a right owed to men by women (pro tip: I'm a lesbian and it's definitely not), hey MTGOWs seem a lot nicer and more reasonable. Except the ones who buy prostituted women. If you're going to "go your own way" then do so properly: don't buy sex slaves. Be politically gay or something. You see what I'm saying?
I just hope MTGOWs would be willing to respect female separation as well, not just private spaces for themselves.
"hey MTGOWs seem a lot nicer and more reasonable. Except the ones who buy prostituted women. If you're going to "go your own way" then do so properly: don't buy sex slaves."
they do that because its an act, they aren't really going their own way, they're just bitter because they're unsuccessful with women
and i know this because after having seen a few of their videos, all they do is complain about how awful women are, which obviously demonstrates a deep concern for women
to what end? to get away from male oppression such as sexual harassment and violence?
