From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Misandry, similar to misogyny, means hating a certain gender and misandry means hating men.[1][2] It is a type of misanthropy but against males. A misandrist is a person, usually a female who hates men. They may hate men because they believe there is something wrong with them, such as being stupid, dirty, inferior or/and evil.[3] A society or a system that sets women above men is called matriarchy.[4][5]

Misandry is a form of sexism, which is based on hate. Radical feminists are usually viewed as misandric or misandrist, hypocritical and gynocentric. Misandry can include violence or discrimination against men. Many misandrists are prejudiced against men. For example they may think that all men or boys are potential rapists.[6]
