If you want to know whether or not your man is a misogynist, it is essential to first identify some of the signs. There are certain signs that your guy could be a woman hater, and it’s vital that you are aware of them.
You Regularly hear him complain about women
If your man is constantly complaining about women who only want to use men, then he may be a misogynist. This is definitely a huge red flag that you will need to watch out for.
He tells you to shut up when he’s talking
If your man often tells you to shut up while he is speaking, he may be a woman hater. It could be that you interrupted him and he angrily went wild. Misogynistic men cannot stand when they think a woman is trying to dictate to them in any way.
He constantly reminds you of his masculinity
When your man constantly points it out to you that he’s “the man,” it’s a sign that he probably dislikes women in general. If your boyfriend keeps reminding you of his machismo, chances are he is compensating for something.
He thinks feminism is a big joke
Your boyfriend has probably made one way too many comments about how the feminist/post-feministic movement is a child’s play. These classes of men don’t take feminism seriously at all, and they believe that women shouldn’t have the same rights and opportunities as men because of their deep-seated hatred for the female gender. There is a huge difference between saying that you disapprove of extreme feminists as opposed to saying that feminism as a whole is a joke.
He thinks you can’t handle any physically demanding tasks
If your man has repeatedly told you that he considers you are too weak to perform certain physical tasks and that you better leave it to the man in the relationship, then he may just as well be a misogynist. Misogynistic men often like to put women down by telling them that they are physically inferior to men. You shouldn’t allow any man talk you down by telling you that you cannot do a physically demanding job, even before you made any attempt.
He get angry when rejected by women
A true misogynist will typically become perceptibly furious when rejected by a woman, whether it is romantically or in some other way. The fact is a man doesn’t get extremely angry over rejection by a woman, unless he considers women insignificant. Guys who do this just expect women to give them everything they want, and they react vehemently when they don’t get it. You definitely don’t want to be with any man who displays such behavior, it could turn out to be a toxic relationship.
He gets upset when you want to demonstrate your independence
Whether it is insisting you get a job or that you pay for your half of a meal, a misogynist would get visibly angry. Such men distaste it when women display open acts of independence, simply because they feel as though it is weakening in some way or another.
He tells you that you wouldn’t understand things because you are a woman
It may be true that women cannot relate to certain issues as well as men, but it’s not nice for a man to keep telling a woman that she wouldn’t understand lots of different things just because of her gender. If your man is always telling you this, there is a high prospect that he just has a deep-seated contempt for the female gender in general. This type of arrogant behavior is typical of misogynists.
