Generally, "misandry" refers to the hatred and oppression of men on a genotypic basis.

As sociologist Allan Johnson notes, "misandry" has no place in a male-identified, male-centered world. Moreover, Johnson states: “And it takes almost no criticism at all in order for men to feel "bashed," like it's "open season on men." In fact, just saying "male privilege" or "patriarchy" can start eyes rolling and evoke that exasperated sense of "Here we go again.” (Allan Johnson, “Privilege, power and difference,” p. 197) "Accusations of male bashing and man hating work to discredit feminism because people often confuse men as individuals with men as a dominant and privileged category of people. Given the reality of women's oppression, male privilege, and some men's enforcement of both, it's hardly surprising that EVERY woman should have moments when she resents or even "hates" men.” (Allan Johnson, "The gender knot," p. 107
“Both movements (white supremacists and male supremacists) attack women and people of color for playing the victim card because they see white men as the real victims. (Michael Kimmel, "Privilege: A reader," p. 325)

The slightest deviation from male and white centeredness is perceived as a profound loss of privilege. This is why with each tiny step that women and minorities take toward equality, the outcry of white and male supremacists about how "oppressed" white men are has been getting louder.

The conservative backlash is in overdrive to protect their illegitimate, unethical, hierarchal system of privilege. Many White heterosexual men feel "oppressed" and rave about the mythic "misandry."

Misandry ( /mɪˈsændri/) is the hatred or dislike of men or boys. Misandry comes from Greek misos (μῖσος, "hatred") and anēr, andros (ἀνήρ, gen. ἀνδρός; "man"). Misandry is the antonym of philandry, the fondness towards men, love, or admiration of them. The term misogyny is the equivalent term for women.

Like misogyny, it's a word, and as such it can be used even if the circumstances don't require it.
Just like misogyny, misandry is wrong. And two wrongs don't make a right.

We can't deny that this society has serious issues with women, but misandry will only make the Man only more convinced of what he's doing.

A hatred of men and boys by their nature, due to the low self-esteem of women who could not get better jobs because they do not like dangerous or inconvenient jobs.
"I spam the same fake definition of misandry dozens of times because I must smash the patriarchy, starting with this website."

This dislike and hatred of men, and males in general.
It is MISANDRY to believe that only males are capable of abuse.

The belief that ALL evil in the world can be traced back to men.

(Similar to the National Socialist belief, that all evil can be traced back to the Jews. Also see: Bigotry.)
After his girlfriend stabbed him in the throat, Joe called the cops and was immediately arrested. After Joe bled to death, his girlfriend was not charged because of MISANDRY.
