Why are Men Afraid of the ‘Misogynist’ Label?

Here is a question-

Why are so many men afraid of the ‘misogynist’ label?

What do you have left to lose? What will you gain by avoiding that label?

You have nothing left to lose by embracing that label, and nothing to gain by avoiding it. That label is inconsequential and meaningless, so treat it appropriately.

    Hm. I took great offense to being called that twice in the past few months.. I suppose it’s because I felt I was being mislabeled and judged (something I know you take offense to wrt race and dating). Furthrr, trying to clarify and rationally explain my concerns, mainly surrounding govt & law and not women, would be met with more of the same.


    If anything, I realize the fault lies with me, for engaging a woman with anything deeper than the superficial.

    They are afraid from not getting laid because of the label.

    The question is: how many men out there really hate women?

      The problem is that any complaint about female behavior is interpreted as being hate directed towards women in general.

      For example, women argue about equal pay for equal work, without having to do the equal work part. They want to start out on the same level as a man, but if they decide to start a family, they can take a break for several years, and come back to where they left off as if no time has past. This leads to the the matter of being a breadwinner. Middle and upper class suburban women want to be employed, but do NOT want to be the breadwinner of the family. While the husband is stuck in a job he hates, she can pursue her dreams. If that means pursuing a Ph.D is literature, so be it. The man has to just suck it up.

      In sex, a woman can spend her prime years chasing after cads, sometimes have their kids, and expect men to be non-judgmental about it. While I realize it is not the kids fault, why do I have to raise someone else’s kids? Yet, if a man has even a modest dating past, and would like to hold onto some tokens of past relationships, such as love letters or an article of clothing, that is selfish, and he should throw it all out. So, I see you kid as a reminder of your sexual past, but if I want to keep a special necktie or poster, that is unacceptable?

        Last paragraph…

        My ex was like that. One-sided. Then she got with a dude who made her throw all her old love letters away out of jealousy. And she did it. Me? I regret losing a few older photos of females.

        Women will also try to pull decent men down IF having those decent men feel guilty gets her cash and prizes. E.g. women who tell men “you downloading movies for free is bad” … who then later say “yay, I managed to watch twilight on youtube for free”!
        many, if not all … get their experience hurling false accusations.

        “One-sidedness” isn’t limited to women, but, it’s much worse in women, since women (despite insisting they’re equal with men) are not biochemically wired for rational thought the way men are — women are bio-wired such that, generally, irrational emotion is often why they decide, behave, and act. Most men are, generally, better able than most women to suppress emotion and then decide and act based upon rationality and logic, meaning men are better able to be fair even if they don’t “feel” like being fair.

        P Ray’s recent March,2015, post in the “Would You Sell Your Soul?” comments bears here again — he described the women who befriend men from certain categories only for the practical help available from those men. In remarking on P Ray’s post, I mentioned another of the ways women are one-sided: “… this is the type of girl — who essentially reduces men to “boyfriend advice object”, “money-management object”, “auto repairs object”, “computer tech object”, “personal training object”, and “legal advice object” — who’s apt to complain that she hates how men value women as “sex objects”.

        As you younger guys keep in mind, as Mr Odessa summarizes it, that women are one-sided; and as P Ray says, that guilt on a woman’s say-so is often unwarranted; also keep in mind that women’s wiring can make them so irrational and illogical they can’t see how the things they do are equivalent if not identical to the things they fault men for doing. ‘Because, nope, women are NOT and CANNOT as a gender be equal with men in some important biochemical aspects.

    Because in todays feminazi society it´s a death sentence to a chance for social advancement. How ever much that is worth anyway.

    That is quickly becoming apparent.

    The current subservient male worker bee deep down knows very well who is not to be pissed off. Boss will regard your misogyny as liability most likely to antagonize the useless cunts in his department. Maybe even leading to costly complications with the law.

    In the society of the pussy pass calling the pussy out is the greatest crime.

    Because most men want, above all else, to be liked.

    I would certainly not mind being liked, but won’t eat shit for it.

    This is a weakness that even your commenters won’t admit to.

    A corollary to my question: do most men hate women deep inside?

    Most likely- yes.

      A lot of men will never see the pavlovian irregular reward cycle that underlies most human relationships.

        most of the time it’s a wishful reward cycle because reward is not even offered.

    Hating women is the biggest error you can make in life.

    Hate gives your´re power away. As you make your emotional welfare dependent on the object of your hate.

    Hating women for the shit they do is like hating puppies for licking up vomit then happily licking your face. They just can´t help it.
    Doesn´t mean one can´t be angry with them. Anger is a perfectly healthy emotion in that regard. Just have to snap out of it quick.

      Better to be indifferent than hateful. I understand their nature, but the best they offer in so called “relationships” can be easily rented for a small fraction of the cost of a relationship.

    This is from a SINGLE MOM with multiple kids. Reason #800,223 why dating in the Western World sucks.

    From a single mothers’ forum:

    “Oh…dating is hard. I’m a hopless romantic so I’ll never lose hope, but there are times when I do question if Mr.Right is out there. I’ve been trying online dating on and off and it seems like I’ve already have gone out with all the ones that had potential…lol.

    So, as of right now….I’m going out with a “Mr. Good Enough”. He is very cute (think Anderson Cooper) and he is really nice…BUT…the red flag is I believe he has a commitment phobia. No big deal…I can’t say I see a future with him. I do, however enjoy his company. We’re actually going away this weekend to a B&B and taking tours of wineries in the Hill Country. My mom and my sis will be taking care of the kids. This will be my first time without my kids in years!!! I’ve only been away from them for about six hours at the most…I feel guilty but I really need and deserve a break. I’m excited but I do wish I was going with “Mr.Right”…but for right now…”Mr. Good Enough” will just have to do. ”


    “After this weekend, I came to the realization that being with a “Mr.Good Enough” is Not good enough….I want more. I want romance,love and true friendship. Something REAL. At the end of this weekend I’m a little sadder…a little lonlier. It was fun and he was nice, but it was very evident that it was just going to be a weekend away…nothing more.

    Did I have hopes that after spending time together we would fall deeply in love…yeah I guess I did. But I think it was clear to both of us that we are not meant to be. So, I give up. I give up. I think I need to grow up and face the fact that I may be single for a long time. I don’t want to settle and I certainly don’t want to be in a relationship just for the sake of being in one….but I do want to be in love. I want so badly to be in love…is that pathetic?!

    I won’t lose my hope…it will happen. And when it does I will treasure it. In the meantime, I’m done with dating. I give up. The disappointment is too great. So, I’m back on my break…. “
