What is the connection of being MGTOW and going Sigma? Men Going Their Own Way (MGTOW) is a movement where men are opting-out of society. I read the website, but like this definition I found by Urban Dictionary.
- “MGTOW is basically 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.
Interestingly, it seemed that these guys are going Sigma. Are these Sigma males? Who’s to say? The popular definition of Sigma as given by Alpha game:
- “SigmaThe outsider who doesn’t play the social game and manage to win at it anyhow. The sigma is hated by alphas because sigmas are the only men who don’t accept or at least acknowledge, however grudgingly, their social dominance. (NB: Alphas absolutely hate to be laughed at and a sigma can often enrage an alpha by doing nothing more than smiling at him.) Everyone else is vaguely confused by them. In a social situation, the sigma is the man who stops in briefly to say hello to a few friends accompanied by a Tier 1 girl that no one has ever seen before. Sigmas like women, but tend to be contemptuous of them. They are usually considered to be strange. Gammas often like to think they are sigmas, failing to understand that sigmas are not social rejects, they are at the top of the social hierarchy despite their refusal to play by its rules. “
Since these MGTOW guys are opting-out of Society, then that would make them going Sigma. Now
there’s only those heroic qualities ascribed to the Sigma: social dominance and winning. Then who really is to say that a man is socially dominant if a particular man has opted out of the hierarchy in the first place? I say Sigma is a man who does not ascribe to society’s valuation process and in the process wins. These guys are not Alphas, or Betas, Deltas. These are well-adjusted men who opted-out .. they are going Sigma.
The next issue is that of the MGTOWs sexual prime stance. A man is a sexual being who needs to channel his sex drive and his energy towards acquiring and enjoying beautiful damsels in tight fitting shorts. If he stops to desire what is naturally his, the sweet nectar of honey of youthful femininity, then he denies the very life urge that propels him towards his unrealized alphahood. The men who have gone their way, have gone away from the females, and their behavior signals a move that emphasizes the female and male dynamic but focuses it solely on the male. This is male energy focusing in itself for itself. David Dueda, a sexual teacher writes:
- “Every man knows that his highest purpose in life cannot be reduced to any particular relationship. If a man prioritizes his relationship over his highest purpose, he weakens himself, disserves the universe, and cheats his woman of an authentic man who can offer his full, undivided presence.”
Now who are we to judge those that have gone their ways? These men have simply gone fishing instead of catching the proverbial poon. In a way, they are on strike for accepting any societal image that had been thrusted upon them. Now in terms of Sigmahood, these men have knowingly accepted the yellow pill and refuses to play by the alpha rules. They now craft their own lives in fishing pants greatly reducing their compulsion to play or to game into the socio world of sexual marketplace.
