Every single time I come on this website I see a new slew of misogynistic comments where in them men claim to be superior, that women are innately worthless, and that women are inferior.
It's these same men who later complain about what they perceive to be "injustices" committed against men such as their inability to get sex as easily as women can.
What I don't understand is what intelligent individual with critical thinking skills can possibly think that your assigned genitals at birth make you better than someone? Why is GaG a hotspot of this gender superiority complex?

There are a few ways of answering this.
One is that it's not really that different then the rest of the internet. Some sites less, some are worse.
Another is that it's not really socially acceptable for men to express pain or resentment in real life. They do not get to tell their friends about their feelings and receive support. So there's a lot of emotional dumping by men online.
Third, I'd say a lot of the specific complains we see from men nowadays are caused by individuals who have been raised with one set of beliefs about men and women, and those beliefs, about women, are being shattered. Broadly I might say there are two parts to that:
- they have been told growing up that good or nice girls behave in some certain way. In fact, almost no women behave in this way. They then feel that every girl they see is bad. Hopefully they move through this stage, to recognizing that they've actually been fed B. S.
- In other ways they've been told that men and women are identical. In fact, they are not. Women value some things more or less than men do. They love differently then how men do. They make ethical decisions in a slightly different way than men do. On the basis that men judge each other, as a group, women may well be inferior to men. There are other basis on which women, as a group, might be superior. However if you just got told 'women and men are the same' without learning to appreciate how women see and make decisions, you are then going to be disappointed. I see that happening in the other direction as well, to some extent.1
