Many girls grow up with a father that is a Narcissistic misogynist and suffer untold damage to self-esteem, sense of self, self-worth, become shame based and tragically all-too-often end up with a boyfriend or husband that is just like Dad was.
So many women, are in relationships, staying in relationships, with Narcissistic Personality Disordered men who are also misogynists. This is a particular and all-too-common even more victimizing combination of devaluation, denigration, disrespect, disdain, and the need to extract narcissistic supply claiming to “love” while in fact really hating a female partner.
Misogyny is defined as, “hatred, distrust, or mistrust of women, or prejudice against women”, in Dictionary.com Feminism, is its opposite. Feminism is a an active declaration that women are not second class citizens, in any way less than their male counterparts, having anything to do with the mere fact of gender differences. Women are not in this world to be controlled and abused by men who feel entitled to a fantasy-like ego-fragmented superiority based on nothing other than that they are male. Feminists advocates for all rights that women still need to have equalized with men in social, political, work, and other areas of society and every day life. Most feminists are not anti-male at all. How this fits in here is to explain the backdrop, cultural, institutional, and otherwise that is used against women by those who are misogynistic, generally, and specifically perceived by male narcissistic misogynists as a threat to them, as something that destabilizes and triggers them very strongly.
