A feminist, a PUA, a MRA, a MGTOW, a Mangina, a White Knight, and a natural Alpha Male are sitting in a bar drinking. Suddenly, a disheveled young waif of a woman stumbles in and asks for help.

GENERAL – MRAs, PUAs, MGTOWs , and How the MRM Is Not a Monolith

Look across the gendersphere and you find a tendency to confusion or conflation of all sorts of strands of “MRAs” into a mish-mashed, generalized, borgified stereotype of rage over loss of privilege and seething misogyny ( because it’s all only ever about the women, after all.)
