We’ve all heard of misogyny: the hatred of women, but have you ever heard of misandry? No? Neither has most spell check software. Misandry is the hatred of men. Comments like “men are pigs” or “men are dogs” or “men are scum” are misandric. Most people take these statements as jokes or good-natured ribbing. Honestly, sometimes they are. Sometimes it’s all in good fun to say “Blacks are pigs” or “homosexuals are dogs” or “jews are scum”, too. Still, reading those words probably made your blood boil, right?
There is no justification for society to be hypersensitive to degrading comments about every single group EXCEPT men. No justification, that is, unless you consider how oppressive and privileged men have always been, right? Men deserve it, right? After all, men have always sat around, smoked cigars, drank brandy and lived in luxury while women fought the wars, mined the coal and gave up their seats on lifeboats for their tyrannic male overlords.
If you’re tired of having bullshit conversations or emotional exchanges that just wouldn’t happen were society to acknowledge that men are often good and women are occasionally bad, contact us.
