Yes, this is actually a thing now. For guys who find the 'Mens Rights' movement insufficiently crazy. :skep:

article excerpt:

They call themselves Men Going Their Own Way and they dislike feminism so much they are grabbing their balls and going home.

All over the world, straight men are making the conscious decision not to be involved with women. This isn't a decision in any sort of metaphorical sense. These men are literally cutting women out of their lives, completely.

It's not a spiritual choice—like becoming ordained as a Catholic priest—nor is it a socioeconomic problem, like Japan's herbivore men. It is more of an ideological celibacy, one that crosses both national borders and religious divides. And the basic reason is the slow crawl toward gender equality.

They are called Men Going Their Own Way (or MGTOW, pronounced "mig-tow") and they have a serious problem with feminism. To them, the feminist movement has all but ruined our society, and it just doesn't make sense to participate in the dating game because women have been, in their eyes, programmed to ruin a man's life. Around every corner they seem to see one-dimensional women who are just out to take their well-earned money and stick them with kids who aren't theirs...

Feminism has indeed caused women to go *****, that's a big problem all right. All started when women wanted to ride bikes and started wearing pantaloons and voting.

I'm surprised you just learned about these guys. MGTOW has been codified as a term for quite a while now.

While MGTOW seems like an extreme swing of the pendulum, it's understandable why it arose. There is no logical reason for a man in a western country to get legally married nowadays. The risk far outweighs the reward. Even with prenuptial agreements there is no guaranteed safety as judges can discard certain clauses or the entire things based on their personal opinions.

MGTOW are also mutually exclusive from MRAs. The MRAs want to change the legal system so it's gender neutral and fairly applied for both sexes, whereas MGTOW just opt out of playing the game entirely. They have a more nihilistic perspective and simply don't participate. Of course, the big problem with MGTOW media presence is the more vocal ones tend to be on the autistic spectrum, so they don't really help their cause.

/inb4 the move to PO.

They sound kinda bitter as a group and the comments. I guess I am somewhat a MGTOW, but I'm really not that against the feminist movement, I actually support it. But on a personal level, after girlfriends, marraige, kids, divorce, & age; I guess I'm a MGTOW now. That whole mess just didn't work for me.

The OP is a big fan of LGBT rights so I'm surprised that he would choose to post a thinly veiled disdain for these fine chaps.

I'm guessing that dealing with women was not a problem for most of these fellows in the first place.

Indeed, claiming "intentional" chastity is easy when it was unintentional all along!
