How common is “man-hating” amongst women? And what are your thoughts on this?

Let me elaborate on the action. Women that bash men. State how there are no good men out there, all men are cheaters, all men are stupid, etc. I have heard this from several women in my life. Older family members and a few friends.

  • I think most women are pretty decent. My exception would be the weird feminists who write opinion pieces in the media. I don't know wtf their problem is.

  • Its pretty common, though it comes in different forms.
    You will always have the ultra-vocal minority. The Rad-fems and such which will find any excuse to demonis men. You'll only tend to see them in real life in big groups on university campuses, or randomly protesting things. But they have a huge impact online. One moment you are cassually discussing what you did or didn't like about the latest film/book/game/series on social media or even the franchise's fan page, and the next you are being attacked because the only reason you could possibly not like X is because you are a "woman hating rape aplolligist".
    But round here you also have a much lower intensity general contempt. A lot of divorced women, and a lot of single mothers. And a whole lot of them will constantly throw out the low level "all men are cheating bastards" type comments. Walk through some of the council estates and you'll hear a mother screaming at her kids that they "will grow up to be spiteful bastards like (their) father!" Or telling a young girl not to hang around with a male friend because "he's only trying to get you alone" or "boys may seem nice but they are all rapists underneath".

  • I've gotten many women that treated me like a spec of dirt on their shoes. When I go to a bar when there's only one friend of mine and maybe like five other guys I end up going home with five new friends. If it is the same with girls, they never end up my friends. Guys are usually way more friendly with me than girls are.

    • Same here. I also get the reverse, though. Women who are too kind compared to how I treat them. But bars aren't a great way to meet women unless you're very good-looking and extroverted. It's an environment where you will have maximum male competition, and the women will have their guard up.

  • I like another user said, I don't think the extreme hatred is that common as to where women just hate men period.. But I do think that there is a passive distrust for males in society in general.. To the point where enough women question if all men are the same, and you have women sayin that "we need to teach men how to control themselves, and not be animals".. Stuff like that..

  • I think most women just say things like that as a way to vent when they are having guy troubles. Men do it too. It doesn't necessarily that they think that all the time, although there will be some women who do, but they are best ignored. Anybody who generalises about half of the population doesn't deserve to be taken seriously.

  • If you are one of these women, stay the fuck away from me. Yes, I am bitter towards women at the moment, but I am not a woman hater by no means. I think females are God's gift to this earth. However, there are a group of women who have black hearts and deserve to live their lives without knowing what a real man's loves feels like. No big loss there, am I right? Just accumulate more cats, you deserve them.

    • If she was one of those women, she would not have asked this question. Those women are not curious. They know men, and men are baaad.

    • Maybe they're the problem, but let's stay on topic. Continue ladies...

  • This is mostly an internet phenomenon that can also be seen is California. Wherever there are sjw's there will be ridiculous things said in the name of bullshit.

    Also men do not hate women as commonly portrayed on the news either

    • So central to southern California. Haven't heard of it being up north really

  • That sounds like an evil opinion to have, it most likely has some bad purpose attached to it like wanting other woman to be miserable as they are or something. I know they don't have anything against me though... and if they do it's a strawman...

  • Man hating is a minority but an exceedingly vocal one so it seems larger than it is... is a social pufferfish small until privilege is invoked like beatleguise

  • I listen to what the extremist man hater women have to say to build a mental model of the possible parameters and motivations to determine how these correlate with what appears to be “normal” woman behavior. The extremists appear to be of less intelligence typically in the skills of social behavior or are sociopaths outright such that they seem to expose the possible thoughts of a woman normally suppressed. That is a scary prospect if it has any viability. It can make a guy very paranoid about a relationship with a woman. So there are my thoughts.

  • I’ve encountered a few, but I’m not really offended by it. They’ve most likely just dated some scumbags and I feel bad for them. If anything it’s ruined their entire view of relationships

  • I've never actually encountered it in person. I've only seen videos about it. From what I have seen it seems to go hand in hand with third wave feminism almost the entirety of the time.

  • Many women hate men. Proof of so is she wants sex but not willing to birth your baby.

    • With your thinking, I hope no woman procreates with you.

    • Usually it's the other way round:

      She doesn't want sex, but if she does, you're in it for the long haul.

  • Why can't we all just love eachother :(

  • Not too common in my experience. Of course, you will always get the extremists online. I only know one or two women who are SJW/Feminist/man haters. Needless to say, I don't associate with them and their negativity.

  • Those who ACTUALLY hate men usually went through something traumatizing (Rape, abuse, etc). They're not right to hate but I can understand why they would.
    Think about people who got attacked by a dog, they often hate and distrust all dogs even if some are harmless. They went through something traumatizing and even if they're wrong, they can't help it

  • Its not a thing for my social circle and since I'm pretty much an introvert I do not socialise much outside of it. I never encountred one of these "men haters" except of some youtube videos and people talking about them online.

  • On one hand, it's a stereotype: "all men are bastards", reverse to " all women are sluts"...
    Unfortunately, yes many times I've heard such a statement but mostly from broken-hearted... the way to ease the sadness and frustration.
