Misandry: The Invisible Hatred of Men

Misandry

I been noticing more and more microaggressions toward men, but I’ve found surprisingly little discussion of this trend. There is a word most people have never heard of: Misandry, meaning hatred of men. It corresponds to misogyny, hatred of women. By noticing microaggressions directed against men, we can uncover a lot of ‘hidden’ misandry. Here are some examples I've come across:

“Men only think with their dicks.”

“A man wouldn’t understand.”

“Men just want a hole to put it in.”

“Men can’t hear the word no.” (when rejected sexually)

“Men are obsessed with lesbian porn.”

“Really? You don’t like sports?”

“He’s, you know, ‘artistic.’”

“Be a man.”

Men are womanizers, man-whores, man-sluts”

I’ve even heard women say things like, “Balls are gross. I hate them.” If a woman overheard men talking about vaginas being dirty and disgusting, she’d surely think this was misogyny and microaggression, but why not the other way around? Many otherwise enlightened people seem to think that putting a man down by shaming him for the transgressions of a few criminal men or for his inadequate physicality is a sort of privilege or entitlement. They are not even aware of their misandry.
