I want to start off by saying so great ideas where thrown out with my last post http://wp.me/p2YaVQ-9p by all the commentators, I want to continue that discussion with ideas on trying to define some of the sub-movements within the overarching sphere.
First, I think some of my commentators think I hate MRA, I do NOT. I actually consider myself partly one. MGTOW kind of foremost because I have all but essentially pulled out of the dating scene (despite flirting with my coworkers) but I have long been sympathetic to the cause of MRA. So no, I do not hate them, and consider myself one.
Without further ado, a work in progress I am attempting to put together:
I made up this diagram, and it is missing some areas, I am not all knowing, and not going to pretend I am, so any ideas or discussion about what might fit where, all ears. I am after truth here, not trying to be a wannabe badass.
I liked the Observer’s name of Dark Enlightenment, so I am using that for the hybrid of MGTOW/MRA, Player Lawyer I could not think of anything other than an archtype that if it exists is likely very rare. Some brought up the red pill marriage crew, which I think would fit in the MGTOW/PUA hybrid because they are not following standard norms (mgtow style) but they are reaping benefits of sex with women (pua style)
I don’t know what the center would be.
Again, all of this is a very sliding scale of things. But I do believe within the sphere there are definite different styles and messages that are being put forth.
