My phone would not acknowledge “misandry” as a word so I was curious as to what the definition would be, with the Define feature the iPhone offers, and this is what came up.
Of all the examples they could have used. I am in no way surprised, but infuriated all the same.
The stigma that being a feminist means one is a man-hater needs to stop.
But the definition isn’t saying that feminists are men haters. It’s saying the person in this definition is using feminism to reason her hate for men. If anything this definition is saying feminists don’t hate men. Most feminist women I know Have boyfriends or husbands and don’t show any disdain towards men unless that man has not given women the respect and equality they deserve.
It almost feels like the person who originally posted this truly doesn’t understand the definition of this word and is a bit defensive over seeing the word “feminist” in away that seems negative but is actually showing it in a positive light. The definition is saying “she thinks she’s a feminist but really she just hates men” not “she’s a feminist and that means she hates men”
