Misogynistic Behaviors and Attitudes

Updated on December 26, 2015

Are you a misogynist?

Misogynists as defined by Wikipedia: Misogyny (/mɪˈsɒdʒɪni/) is the hatred or dislike of women or girls. Misogyny can be manifested in numerous ways, including sexual discrimination, belittling of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification of women.

What behavior do you consider misogynistic? Are you a man that secretly hates women or believes they are not capable of operating and functioning on the same level as a man? What are your thoughts on misogynistic men that spoil their daughters, giving them the world, but view adult women with the belief they are not intelligent or as powerful as a man. Do you feel misogynistic behavior is on the rise due to women climbing the corporate ladder accomplishing more than men accomplish?

Do you believe there is a difference between chivalry and misogynistic behavior?

Politics

Marlow Stern wrote an article regarding Donald Trump’s attitude towards women. His article shed light on sexist comments perceived to be women bashing. Displays of misogyny include such comments on social media from Donald Trump:

Donald J. Trump ✔@realDonaldTrump -"Fox viewers give low marks to bimbo @MegynKelly will consider other programs!"

Megyn Kelly(interview question): “Your Twitter account has several disparaging comments about women’s looks. You once told a contestant on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees.

Clothing company launches new jewelry line:

I love ugly men’s clothing line, based in New Zealand, launched their jewelry line by utilizing an advertising campaign that managed to raise many eyebrows to say the least.

Silicon Valley-California:

Newsweek published an article capturing what Silicon Valley thinks of women. The article captured the attitude among a culture of men that disrespect and objectify women on a regular basis.The article provided information about the workings of Silicon Valley:

Google “Silicon Valley” and “frat boy culture” and you’ll find dozens of pages of articles and links to mainstream news articles, blogs, screeds, letters, videos and tweets about threats of violence, sexist jokes and casual misogyny, plus reports of gender-based hiring and firing, major-league sexual harassment lawsuits and a financing system that rewards young men and shortchanges women.

There was the young executive of a company valued at $250 million who got up in front of an audience at a conference billed as diverse and joked about “gang-bang interviews” and how he got his start by sending elusive CEOs whose attention he needed “bikini shots” from a “nudie calendar” he’d made of college women. ………………………

It’s a place where companies routinely staff conference booths with scantily clad “code-babes” and where women are so routinely sexually harassed at conferences that codes of conduct have become de rigueur—and the subject of endless misogynistic jokes on Twitter.


In The South/Atlanta:

A suspension for a few days took place when The Game host Mike Bell (92.9) tweeted this inappropriate tweet involving two time softball Olympic medalist Jessica Mendoza. Bell wrote on Twitter:

"yes tell us T--s McGhee when you're up there hitting the softball you see a lot of 95 mile an hour cutters?"


The Truth

Women have worked hard to break glass ceilings and push themselves to achieve greatness. Unfortunately there are men that still feel it is appropriate to flirt when conducting business, objectify women when it comes to business, and operate as if women are stupid and incapable of understanding business concepts. There are men that believe you can tell a woman anything and they are supposed to accept your thoughts as if God has spoken.

Women demand and command respect in the workplace and when conducting business. Women should be taken seriously. Women are capable of building businesses, leaders providing insightful direction to others, and have earned the respect that they rarely receive by their peers. So to all those that believe that women are just show pieces, pretty objects to stick by your side, useless other than for pleasure-wake up. Business is business. Last time I checked Universities aren't in the business of handing out degrees and certifications-they are earned.

Do men respect women as equals in positions of authority?
