loose collection of predominantly web-based misogynist movements
(Redirected from Manosphere)

The manosphere or androsphere are a collection of vlogs, forums and other platforms meant for men and boys. The content creators are usually older than those who watch. The androsphere includes people promoting intactivism, MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way), people promoting fapstinence, male dating coaches, and MRA (men's rights activists).[1] Some manospherians or androspherians have proposed there should be increased funding for the field of andrology or andrologists.[2] Some in the androsphere also promote equal access to sphinx wax facilities.[3]
