MGTOW (also spelled migtow) is an acronym for a collection of online forums dedicated to Men Going Their Own Way from women. Aka avoiding women.

Incels say that these men mostly aren't choosing this path and are instead being sent their own way by female hypergamy.

Most MGTOWs are basically incels in denial. They also are wayyy more paranoid about women than self-described incels (if you can believe that) and probably all have paranoid schizophrenia.

MGTOW vloggers[edit]

Although and /r/MGTOW are popular MGTOW sites, MGTOW activity seems to be especially present on Youtube with countless accounts dedicated to MGTOW content just from motivated individuals. It's not really an organized group. Here's some of the more notable ones:


Off-gridders are the most extreme MGTOWs, who go a step further by disengaging from society as a whole. Also, no fap is very popular among MGTOWs.


Despite claims that MGTOW is dying as a movement, it remains the most popular manosphere content format on Youtube, as the top three manosphere content creators as of late 2018 seem to be MGTOW content creators instead of incel or MRA.


Difference between MGTOWs and incels[edit]

MGTOWs think men don't need sex or relationships, think female nature is inherently evil/selfish, and can't be overridden, they also think they are volcel which is cute.

Incels think men with a normal sex drive need sex and/or relationships, but some men have are selected out and that doesn't allow them to be able to engage or be a part of any type of relationship with a women. Many self-identified incels believe in the Blackpill and they believe that they never had a chance to be with a women since the day they were born.

Both groups though generally agree with Esther Vilar but, perceived universal rejection without entirely blaming themselves makes incels critical of the way women act.
