Men Going Their Own Way, or MGTOW, whose members many say have joked about violence against women and rape for years, has been connected with the online "manosphere," a sub-culture group made up of mostly "men's rights activists" and "incels," short for involuntary celibates, who want revenge, sometimes violent revenge, against the women they believe wield sexual power in society.

A now widely-circulated January 2020 scholarly report written by a group of computer scientists framed the "manosphere" as a movement growing in troubling ways, showing how it has been concretely associated with acts of domestic terrorism.

This report showed that the MGTOW group specifically had been linked to multiple occurrences of "online harassment and real-world violence." It pointed to a frequent visitor to the MGTOW community: Christopher Hasson, a U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant, and a self-identified "White Nationalist" who was sentenced to 13 years in prison for stockpiling unregistered gun silencers, stockpiling weapons as an addict of a controlled substance, and possession of controlled substances.
