Misandry As A Form Of Self-Love & Self-Preservation? Let’s Discuss
I spent all night exploring the concept of misandry. Truthfully, I have been thinking about this for months, off and on. And I believe that I finally made a personal breakthrough in understanding misandry and furthermore, being more comfortable with identifying as a misandrist.

Because most women are looked at as conniving temptresses, it’s easy to see why envy exists with most men. The gender norm for men usually involves them logging in long hours at a mundane job to provide for the family, while women can use their natural sensuality and femininity to get ahead in life.
