Hatred and misogyny

February 20, 2015

One of the common and rather tiring behaviours I see from the BP camp is the tendency to throw around words as pejoratives without any real attempt to follow its definition. In doing so it seems that they're more concerned with shaming the individual than caring whether or not the accusation rings true.

A good example is the term 'misogynist'. Literally:

Misogyny (/mɪˈsɒdʒɪni/) is the hatred or dislike of women or girls.

This term is often levied at TRP'ers who say unkind things about women. It strikes me that BP'ers don't seem to understand that you can make rational observations about the world without feeling hate.

I'll use an example. My buddy Steve is a good guy, but he absolutely sucks at basketball. He's put up so many bricks in his lifetime he could have built a house by now. I think he's inferior to me at playing basketball, in every aspect.

I genuinely like Steve though. His value to me isn't in his (poor) ability to play basketball. I value his other qualities. I'm not anti-Steve because I think my wheelchair-bound grandmother can out-play him.

Can you see how thinking that women are inferior in some respects doesn't mean that we hate women?
