Britain (and presumably America) have apparently developed and equivalent of Japan’s Herbivore Men who refuse to marry or seek sexual relationships with women. (The Independent)
[T]ens of thousands of men have formed a real-life online community called MGTOW, or Men Going Their Own Way.
Their first rule? Abandoning all romantic relationships with women.
On Reddit alone, some 15,000 readers are subscribed to the MGTOW page which declares it is for “men going our own way by forging our own identities and paths to self-defined success; cutting through collective ideas of what a man is.â€
Other websites including MGTOW.com are also dedicated to what they see as each man’s fight for sovereignty of himself. And despite their hatred for women, homosexuality isn’t accepted, either.
Posts on the Reddit page offer an insight into their world: They range from worrying that future sex bots will be hacked by central government, to encouraging men to divorce their wives. They also debate how “even men in Hollywood” are â€œcuckoldedâ€ and wronged by women.
Others discuss the merits of visiting prostitutes, and how pop songs are feminist propaganda. The more you scroll, the darker it becomes.
One recent post described how women â€œfake orgasms often, because it makes men more submissiveâ€. Another talked of â€œditchingâ€ his â€œblue pill friends.â€ Others proudly declare that they are still virgins.

It’s obviously another of those weird millennial things.
