“When you grow up as a girl, it is like there are faint chalk lines traced approximately three inches around your entire body at all times, drawn by society and often religion and family and particularly other women, who somehow feel invested in how you behave, as if your actions reflect directly on all womanhood.”
M.E. Thomas, Confessions of a Sociopath: A Life Spent Hiding in Plain Sight

Milan Kundera
“Because misogynists are the best of men.” All the poets reacted to these words with hooting. Boccaccio was forced to raise his voice: “Please understand me. Misogynists don’t despise women. Misogynists don’t like femininity. Men have always been divided into two categories. Worshipers of women, otherwise known as poets, and misogynists, or, more accurately, gynophobes. Worshipers or poets revere traditional feminine values such as feelings, the home, motherhood, fertility, sacred flashes of hysteria, and the divine voice of nature within us, while in misogynists or gynophobes these values inspire a touch of terror. Worshipers revere women’s femininity, while misogynists always prefer women to femininity. Don’t forget: a woman can be happy only with a misogynist. No woman has ever been happy with any of you!”
Milan Kundera, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting

Wilkie Collins
“Whenever a woman tries to put you out of temper, turn the tables, and put HER out of temper instead. They are generally prepared for every effort you can make in your own defence, but that. One word does it as well as a hundred; and one word did it with Limping Lucy. I looked her pleasantly in the face; and I said—"Pooh!”
Wilkie Collins, The Moonstone

M.F. Moonzajer
“Leaving one religion for the sake of another one is like breaking with a rapist for the sake of dating a misogynist.”
M.F. Moonzajer, LOVE, HATRED AND MADNESS

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“To a misogynist: To err is woman.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“Misogynist is a word used by women about men who are able to describe women directly and accurately enough to make them feel uncomfortable and insecure about themselves.”
Robert Black
