What is a misogynist?

User Avatar
Answer: A Misogynist is a person (often but not always a man) who hates women. Some psychoanalysts feel that it stems from the time when some men were boys and experienced a time earlier in their lives when they had a need to feel more masculine, and not so nurtured by their mothers as daughters do. It's a more difficult time for some young men. All through life they seem to reach back to days of old where they are the hunters providing for their family while the wife bears children, cooks, cleans and does as she is told. Now a new world has opened up where women are far more liberated and it all started with the Women's Rights for voting. Men felt women should stay and home and do their wifely duties. Then came WWII and men went off to war while women took over men's jobs. Once those men who were lucky enough to come home from the war alive were given their jobs while women were told to go back yet again to their wifely duties, but this time women had a taste of the fact they were far more intelligent than lead to believe and that they could earn a living. From then on it was male chauvinism for years where women didn't get the same pay for the same job (generally in offices.) Even today women that join Armed Forces, the Police Academy or the Fire Department can go through quite a difficult time. They are still not fully accepted on an equal basis by many men. A man's character is very fragile although they don't understand why. Most men accept the way things are in today's world, but some men will go out of their way to make women's lives miserable and he'll enjoy doing it. Some of those ways are by murder, rape or domestic abuse. These men want the control back they feel they deserve. Spelled correctly, "misogyny" means a hatred of women A misogynist is a person full of hatred and dislike for women. Answer: Ironically, the previous answer is an example in tone and implication of misandry, misogyny's ugly opposite. Misogyny is a form of misanthropy, also seen in misandry. Misanthropy is the hatred of all mankind, while misogyny is specifically hatred of women, and misandry is specifically hatred of men. No form of misanthropy is gender specific. There are women who are misogynists, as well as men who are mysandrists. People are complex, and there are an infinite number of reasons any form of misanthropy exists. Specifically, though, it seems to result as a reaction or psychological response to injury or perceived injury, emotional, psychological, or even physical. While misanthropes tend to react badly to others around them, it is still possible to form relationships, and close bonds, with a misanthrope, albeit a misanthrope likely to be difficult to handle for his or her reluctance to be with anybody else. As aforementioned, misogynists and misandrists both tend to act in that way because of a lack of nurture from either of their parents. Sometimes this is not the case, however. Montague Von Druitt, one of the "Jack the Ripper" suspects, was a misogynist, and yet, rather than feeling hurt by the lack of affection he likely experienced from his parents, he was quite nonchalant when they died, and was thought to be a psychopath. His extreme misogyny and insanity led him to become one of the Ripper suspects. Nearly all the Ripper suspects show some form of insanity, or misogyny (the two are occasionally linked, but are usually not correlated.)

Which is correct for suture material Tycron or Ti-Cron?

User Avatar
Steadman's lists both spellings and I believe they are sold under both names (depending on manufacturer), but in my experience Ti-Cron is the preferred spelling, probably by virtue of its being the bigger seller.
