We have been frequently emailed and asked online, “Is the Stepford Wives Organization MGTOW?” or “Is the Stepford Wives Organization MRA men in disguise?”
So the first thing we did was to look it up online at Google. And that left us scratching our heads, “are we Maximum Takeoff Weight?” (at least that’s what we got when we typed in our inquiry at Wikipedia).
So then we typed in MRA, and Google returned this picture:
Now we’re even more confused. We asked Carolyn’s husband and he said, “Um, I think they mean Men’s Rights Movement….sounds like a gun club but is really a male version of National Organization for Women.”
Needless to say, if you had met any of us in person, there wouldn’t be a need to ask that question. We definitely support the Men Going Their Own Way.
Here are a few lines from the MGTOW manifesto:
1. Instilling masculinity in Men by:
Demanding respect for men.
Serving as good male role models.
Living independent lives.
2. Instilling femininity in Women:
We will hold women equally accountable to men and ignore and shun those who refuse to take any responsibility for their own circumstances. Thus we induce women to take a complementary position with men instead of a competitive position as is now the case.
Feminine qualities we want from Women:
Being a Nurturer.
Of course we support their goals, and stand behind them 100%. But we ourselves are NOT MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way), nor are we MRA (Men’s Rights Activists).
Men today – white men, in particular – have it more difficult than any demographic group in the Western hemisphere. As quotas are required to be filled, jobs, opportunities, and benefits are doled out to a multitude of nonwhite males. We, as women, understand that invisible sense of existence. Therefore, we were able to empathize with their drive to reclaim their manhood, just as we reclaimed our femininity.
The last thing the oft downbeaten men (just watch many of the popular tv commercials where women are portrayed as smart and strong and men are portrayed as stupid and weak) needs in our society is to be made fun of. And once you combine the whole Women and Children more with the Women First vision of the new headstrong feminists, it is clear we are headed for the fall of Western Civilization.
