What's MGTOW? Might go to Winnipeg?

"Men going their own way". Basically it's a movement which encourages men to choose their own path in life and to not adhere to society's feminine standards which are anti-male.

Vox_Veritas: I can't believe how men nowadays think that they're the sex that's being oppressed, and believe they're having their "rights taken away" because females are finally gaining equality. It's ridiculous and yet people on this site agree with it.

@PetersSmith: Seeing as how you're a feminist and I'm with the MRM, I suppose that disagreement on such subjects is inevitable.

I'm a supporter of the Almighty Patriarchy. When the feminists and everyone else that isn't us have collapsed under the weight under their in-built failings, we'll fix things.

PetersSmith, the feminist movement has gone too far. I don't think there is anybody with more double standards than the feminist movement.

Being a humanist and a feminist are not mutually exclusive.

Where is the option for like pro-male rights stuff? I mean, MGTOW isn't really fighting for men's rights, it is just encouraging them to live a life separate from dependence on women. I think there is a subtle difference.

@Briantheliberal, technically "feminism" is, by definition, advocating for women's rights, and "masulinism" or whatever is advocating for men's rights, and by putting in the "humanism" option, the author of the poll is implying that "feminism" and "masculinism" are exclusively focusing on the rights of their respective genders, and the humanist option is reserved for people that fight for the rights of both. That is to say, a humanist can be a feminist, a humanist can be a MRA, but a feminist or a MRA cannot be a humanist in this poll. A lot of feminists claim to be egalitarian or a humanist, and that is fine: by that definition, I am a feminist too, but there are also a lot of bad feminists out there that are militant towards men or think that there are no gender-unique problems that men face, so I and others don't want to become associated with those people so we call ourselves something different as it gets the message across that we advocate for both gender's rights. If I go around and call myself a feminist, a lot of people that have had good experience with feminists will think highly of me, but other people, the majority of people where I live, will think low of me due to bad experiences with bad feminists. That is why I call myself an egalitarian or a humanist, to imply the fact that I advocate for both gender's rights and fight to eliminate both of their problems.
