People are typically labeled as misogynistic when they hate women who do not think and act in accordance with traditional gender roles, says Psychology Today. Misogynists may hate all women or only hate women who do not meet their behavioral expectations.
Misogynists often expect women to dote on the men in their lives as placid mates and mothers, according to Psychology Today. A misogynist may also demand that women are sexually available. When misogynists are surrounded by subordinate women, they might not actively hate women. However, they are still misogynists because they are ready to start hating if they see women assert themselves and challenge traditional gender roles.
