What is misogynist?


         You may have heard the word “misogynist”. Or maybe you just heard about this word on this site. According to Wikipedia, Misogyny is the hatred of, contempt for, or prejudice against women or girls. Misogyny manifests in several ways, including social exclusion, violence against women, hostility, androcentrism, sex discrimination, patriarchy, male privilege, belittling of women, disenfranchisement of women, and sexual objectification. 

Misogyny develops as a result of early childhood trauma with woman caregiver.  An important woman figure who was neglectful, abusive, or who violated trust can precipitate misogyny.  Misogynistic tendencies can be perpetuated with continued exposure to abuse, neglect, or trauma.  If intervention occurs in childhood, misogyny can be somewhat addressed and treated.  However, once a male reaches maturity, it is extremely difficult to reverse his misogynistic ways.

Misogyny can be found within sacred text of  mythologies,  religions, Western philosophy and Eastern philosophy. But what you may not realize is that they can be anywhere near you. misogynist are notoriously hard to spot. They do not come with a label attached, and they may even come across as pro woman.


In some cases, misogynists do not even know that they hate women. Misogyny is typically an unconscious hatred that men form early in life, often as a result of a trauma involving a female figure they trusted. An abusive or negligent mother, teacher, sister, or girlfriend can plant a seed deep down in their brain’s subcortical matter.

Once planted, this seed will begin to grow, the tiny root working its way into the fear processing and memory areas of the brain as its tiny stem works its way into frontal areas of the brain, affecting rational decision-making and emotion.

The first signs of misogyny are barely noticeable, but with additional exposure to neglect, lack of treatment, or abuse, this behavioral seeding will grow larger and more prominent. But even when the misogyny reaches maturity and the tendency toward acting with hatred toward women can no longer be controlled, the misogynist and the women around him will often fail to notice the condition until it’s too late.

These are some typical of the misogynist:
He will make promises to women and often fail to keep them. With men, on the other hand, he will almost always keep his word.

He will be late for appointments and dates with women, but be quite punctual with men.

His behavior toward women in general is cocky, grandiose, controlling, and self-centered.

He will zero in on a woman and choose her as his target. Her natural defenses may be down because he’s flirtatious, exciting, fun, and charismatic at first.

As time goes on, he begins to reveal a Jekyll & Hyde personality. He may change quickly from irresistible to rude, and from rude back to irresistible.

He is extremely competitive, especially with women. If a woman does better than him socially or professionally, he feels terrible. If a man does better, he may have mixed feelings about it but he is able to look at the situation objectively.

He will be prepared (unconsciously) to use anything within his power to make women feel miserable. He may demand sex or withhold it in his relationships.

He will unknowingly treat women differently from men in workplace and social settings, allowing men various liberties for which he will criticize female colleagues or friends.

Sexually, he likes to control women and gives little or no attention to their sexual pleasure. Foreplay, if it occurs at all, is only a necessary means to an end. His favorite positions enable him to avoid looking the woman in her eyes.

On a date, he will treat a woman the opposite of how she prefers. If she is an old-style lady who prefers a gentleman who holds the door for her, orders for both and pays for the meal, he will treat her like one of his male friend, order for himself, and let her pay for the whole meal if she offers. If she is a more independent type who prefers to order her own meal and pay for herself, he will rudely order for both and pay the check while she goes to the bathroom.

Men who are discriminatory and who possess a hatred of women are classified as misogynists.

Misogynists most certainly do not treat others as they would like to be treated.  They go through their developmental stages, reach maturity, and become set in their misogynistic ways.

A misogynist can cause intense emotional destruction in their wake, while completely obliterating a female’s confidence and self-esteem.  So, it is critical that a woman receive the necessary treatment and support to extricate herself from a misogynistic relationship.
