    The Herbivore Man

    The Herbivore Man

    I considered adding this to my ‘How Big Is MGTOW’ thread but thought it merited a thread of its own.

    I also considered posting it in the Non-members forum to allow those that have not signed up to this site and have experience of this to post replies.

    But I decided to post it in the Lounge as I felt that is where it would get the most exposure as lurkers seem to be drawn here. For any on-lookers with experience of this ‘phenomenon’ please make a post in the non-members forum as I would be very interested in your views.

    I was reading a sticky by Jagr in the intro’s section about forum motion here:
    https://www.goingyourownway.com/mgto...ion-posted-94/
    Follow the link in the post and you’ll get there.

    It was here I came across a term I was previously unaware of.

    The term was ‘The Herbivore Man’ and I initially thought: here we go, some soy-boy thinks he has something to say. Nothing could have been further from the truth!

    From Wikipedia:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herbivore_men

    Herbivore men[1] or grass-eater men[2] (草食(系)男子 Sōshoku(-kei) danshi) is a term used in Japan to describe men who have no interest in getting married or finding a girlfriend.[3][4] The term herbivore men was also a term that is described as young men who had lost their "manliness".
    And the term does not seem to be limited to Japan as the post I read was from a Chinese viewpoint.

    It seems that it is a derogatory term applied to those seeking to go their own way and an attempt to corral them back to the farm. I would be interested to know more about this, and if there are other terms in other parts of the world to femsplain our viewpoint.

    Wikipedia as we all know is not a reliable source of information, so any info from our members will be welcome as it could save me hours, if not days, of research on my own.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    They watched their fathers work 80 hours per week at the altar of capitalism and corporate worship, only to get divorced, tossed by the company and then die a slow emotional death, or an actual physical one. They saw this and said "Yeah, fuck that noise." They do not get involved in corporate worship, and they eschew marriage and LTRs with women - although they do have female friends.

    They're fucking MGTOW ninja's is what they are! Three cheers for our Japanese brothers!

    Re: The Herbivore Man

    What Insidious said is about right. These men were MGTOW before MGTOW existed. They go their own way primarily because they know that the society is gynocentric and that corporate life (especially in Japan) is not worth it.

    They get laughed at by their families and Japanese community in general. Why? Because they aren't willing to spend money and be a part of the capitalist system. So that makes them horrible people somehow.

    And the terms soushoku kei is derogative. It means a man who cannot eat meat. I believe this terms was created by a white knight journalist a few years back.

    Many soushoku kei live with their parents, or rent a very cheap apartment. They probably cycle to work, and probably work part time hours. They save money and enjoy playing video games. They do not ask girls out and probably don't even bother looking at them, or even speaking with them.

    They are not angry, not resentful. They just don't want to be exploited by corporations or females.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    Tradcon women are the most manipulative of all kinds of women, because they infect you with false hope.
    Radfems are your best friend, because they hate you and verbalise it - that's honesty!

    The red pill rage is a process which takes many many years - so be kind and patient with yourself.

    Yes, it means "grass eater" - and the shaming language implied is that the Corporate Samurai is a badass MEAT eater - a T-Rex. The grass eater is more like a cow, or the gentle-giant of dinosaurs, the Apatosaurus.

    As for me, when society -especially society's bitches - are shaming me I just smile, walk away and think: "Fuck yeah, I'm doing it right!"

    Re: The Herbivore Man

    From what I know of nutrition, the term is ironic in a sense. Humans were built to eat mostly fruits, vegetables and starches. Look at gorillas, their diet is mainly shoots and fruits (with some termites added in here and there) and they've got lots of muscle.

    In the same light, vegan men tend to have slightly higher testosterone levels than vegetarians and meat-eaters, and they also have lower rates of heart disease and cancer. I'm no vegan, but I've cut down on the meat and eat more starchy carbs for health. Anyway, I digress...

    The take home message is that you can get by with doing less. Why work more and pay more tax into a system that treats you like an expendable utility? Fuck society and its callous shaming tactics towards us and other "grass eaters". I ain't playing no more, I'd rather just sit back and enjoy the ride with a nice cold oat soda.

    The current system is running on debt. In order for the system to function, you need to be in debt. And not the kind that pays for extra degrees and so forth - but the kind that gives women more spending power.

    When a large chunk of men decide against that - then the shaming tactics will start on mass.

    We here are just a small group of individuals, without much social influence - but we are hated simply for saying 'no'.

    If you use the word 'no' more often, you'll be happier, but you'll also make many enemies.

    I wouldnt say that we are a small group of individuals, we are growing in numbers week after week and soon enough we will reach a critical mass that will make it impossible for mainstream culture to ignore us.

    The problem we pose is that it doesnt need a membership or a contract to join us, any man that says "enough" or "Im done" automatically becomes one of us.

    Lets not forget also about man dating and attending women with no intention to commit at all which makes them basically the same as us in social terms.

    Women apparently are doing their best to push men toward mgtow wheter its married women mentally abusing their husbands or divorcing from them or simply single ladies getting fatter and fatter by the day with more tattoos and open desire for hypergamy.

    Re: The Herbivore Man

    The shaming in the definition is what drives me mad. “Young men who had lost their manliness”. The implications of that simple statement means a lot. Statements like that most people gloss over and would ridicule me for pointing out. Since taking the red pill, these statements glare at me and I cannot ignore them. One of my missions is to pass on stuff like this to my 2 sons. Thank you for sharing.

    Young men did not "loose" their manliness, the way I see it, they were "emasculated", "swindled", and "robbed" of their "natural rights", the construct was made artificial and surrogate for women and government to rule and survive on the sacrifice of men and our natural rights, in other words, it's become tyrannical and overruled by tyrants that can't recognize or see their own tyranny.

    You, teaching your sons the truth, offers the only hope of any kind of sustainable and stable future for them, otherwise they're just children being marched to slaughter.

    I cried my last tears for this society, now all I want is for it to die the death it earned and deserves.

    Fuck with Mother Nature, and Father Time will get them in the end! Father Time always has the last laugh and the last word

    Sorry ladies, fuck with natural law, and sure as there's a moon, it will fuck you back with due diligence and vengeance!
