Can we delete the alternate meanings section?[edit]

I get that it's meant to be sarcastic, but it's very badly written. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs


Hinduism is also very misogynistic

hatred of trans women (e.g. Ophelia Benson's): Is it misogyny, or is it acceptable?[edit]

We need to decide whether to treat hatred of trans women as misogyny. One possibility is that we should ignore the issue, since trans women are actually men, not women, and therefore, people who hate trans women are irrelevant to this article. The other possibility is that trans women are women: Morally, they should be treated as such, and Benson is wrong. We can't correct Benson's hate, but we can write about the issue in a less hateful way than Benson would. I ask this question seriously: Does Benson hold some position of authority here? Or can we kick her to the curb and talk about trans issues with compassion?

The new opening quote[edit]

I don't like it, to be honest. It makes it look like RW endorses the idea of women enslaving men. - Linneris (talk) 10:43, 18 July 2022 (UTC)

it is better than the quote it replaced. find an alternative if you dislike this one. AMassiveGay (talk) 12:49, 19 July 2022 (UTC)

Can you please add Andrew Tate to the list of known misogynists?[edit]

He regularly talks badly about women. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Outside of the internet does he really carry much influence? There's three historical examples. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 03:03, 26 October 2022 (UTC)
I’d nominate adding Elliot Rodger and perhaps Malleus Maleficarum to the list. Allgoodusernamesweretaken (talk) 21:00, 26 October 2022 (UTC)
it should not be an exhaustive list. we do not need every misogynist we can think of, just enough to illustrate what misogynists look like in the wild. AMassiveGay (talk) 21:04, 26 October 2022 (UTC)
that said elliot rodger probably does illustrate with an extreme example AMassiveGay (talk) 21:06, 26 October 2022 (UTC)
