2.“Well, in my experience it’s easier for men to keep that misogynistic behavior in check until they are confronted with a woman they don’t like. So, look at how they treat women who aren’t doing what he ‘thinks’ they should be doing. Misogynistic men will act much differently to women they are attracted to vs. women they aren’t attracted to. Same with women who they respect vs. don’t respect. Those differences could be red flags.”
4.“I do not trust a single person who unironically refers to women and girls as ‘females.’ Female friend, female scientist, etc. — fine. But using ‘a female’ to describe a woman/girl is dehumanizing and skin-crawling.”
5.“Acting like they know what women, AS A WHOLE, want in a man. They assume we all want the same thing, a 6′ plus, muscular, douchebag. Some girls probably do and that’s fine. But when men get angry about that, and then position themselves as the ‘nice guy,’ it’s not OK.”
8.“They have no friends who are women. I know I see a lot of young girls/women who think it’s ideal that their boyfriend has no female friends. I argue this is probably not as great as they make it out to be. If a woman can’t tolerate to be friends with you, odds are something’s not right.”
13.“How they treat or talk about gay/bi men. Misogyny is usually paired with treating other groups poorly, too. In a romantic context, men will be hiding their misogyny, so pay attention to how they treat others!”
14.“Over-hating on women characters who are somewhat morally gray, but then praising or excusing the men characters who are much MUCH worse. Diane from BojackHorseman, Skyler from BreakingBad, and Amber from Invincible are all victims to this.”
