** In at least one other episode he tries to portray himself as a protector of women from unwanted harassment. His bandmates call him out on WhiteKnighting his way into their pants and remind him that they KNOW he is a misogynist despite his attempts to demonstrate otherwise (they are in fact correct).

* [[spoiler: Arvis of Velthomer]] of ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War]]'' has serious issues with the female gender. This is less about outright hatred and more as a consequence of a rather DarkAndTroubledPast. [[spoiler:His much-hated father, Duke Victor of Velthomer, was a {{Jerkass}} who drove Arvis's beloved and idealized mother Cigyun into despair with his [[TheCasanova womanizing]] ways. When Victor raped Cigyun's lady-in-waiting and kicked her out of the court when she got pregnant (which would lead [[HeroicBastard to his half-brother Azel's birth]]), the distraught Cigyun had an affair with Prince Kurth of Grannvale. When Victor found out about ''that'', he killed himself, and Cigyun left Velthomer, never to return]]. This drove Arvis to kick almost all the women out of the Velthomer court and to distance himself from all females for many years...except for three: his surrogate mother (Cigyun's aforementioned lady-in-waiting), his right hand woman Aida ([[spoiler:and mother of Saias, ''his'' HeroicBastard son]]), and the girl he would marry - [[spoiler:Deirdre, who he only later finds out is Cigyun and Kurth's daughter, [[BrotherSisterIncest his half-sister]], ''and'' already married to [[TragicHero Lord Sigurd]].]] [[MindScrew It's very, VERY complicated]].
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' subverts this with Lon'qu. He seems to be this at first, but when the subject is properly brought up he states that he does NOT hate the female gender as a whole, or even a single actual woman. The issue actually comes from [[spoiler: him being [[CartwrightCurse scared of ''hurting'' women or bringing disgrace to them]], since his OnlyFriend and probable FirstLove Ke'ri was ''murdered by bandits [[HeroicSacrifice when she was trying to protect him]]'']]; this [[DarkAndTroubledPast life-changing event]] left him '''severely''' traumatised and almost completely unable to properly interact with any female. He gets better in some of his supports and even notes that Nowi does not trigger his usual reaction, but never fully recovers.

Added DiffLines:

* Zorzal from ''Literature/Gate'' is this taken to its most horrific logical extreme. He views women as so pathetically inferior to men, not to mention to himself, that the only thing he likes about them is that he can enslave them and then brutally rape them whenever he pleases. He is so utterly humiliated by his hand-picked Praetorian guard getting slaughtered, and himself being utterly brutalized by Shino Kuriabashi, after he threatened to burn Japan to the ground (because the JSDF dared to take back a Japanese citizen he kidnapped and enslaved), that he fervently lies about it to everyone, including himself. Further, [[spoiler: when he takes the throne]], he enslaves his own sister, Piña, for not worshiping his ego, has her stripped naked (although the anime clothes her with rags), and throws her in the room belonging to his "favorite slave" (read: the one he rapes and brutalizes most often), to "await her sentence."

* Website/FourChan is often accused of this, due to the site's default {{Jerkass}} tone. This was brought about by the community's emphasis on anonymity; there came to be a belief that if you feel the need to mention your gender, race, sexuality, etc. than your expecting some kind of special treatment. A running joke on the site is to declare "tits or GTFO" whenever a woman introduces herself.
* The comments, titles and descriptions on Porn 2.0 (Website/YouTube-esque porn sites) fit this trope as well. Even if the girl is just masturbating (presumably what the person watching is doing as well), she will get called a "dumb whore" just because she's a girl. Many videos are possibly [[FridgeHorror A). released without consent or B). taped with a hidden camera]].
* The Internet in general had this problem for back when it was first starting to become mainstream. The belief that ThereAreNoGirlsOnTheInternet was built partly around this, due to long-standing stereotypes of nerdy things being for boys. Over the years it's becoming a DiscreditedTrope as the claim's falsity is becoming increasingly blatant.
** It still occasionally pops up, as detailed in [[http://www.newstatesman.com/blogs/helen-lewis-hasteley/2011/11/comments-rape-abuse-women this article]]. Notably, it's more common on blogs and sites that involve controversial topics like politics, religion, or social justice.



* Website/{{Reddit}} is notorious for this.



* Depressingly common in many gaming and technically-oriented forums.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', Porrim speculates that [[BigBad Lord English]] is this, going off the fact that, of his three female henchmen, only one of them (Snowman) gets treated with any respect by him or his gang. When we actually meet English later and learn his backstory, she turns out to have only been half-right; English ''does'' have some serious issues with women (largely caused by the fact that the only girl he really knew growing up was his sister, whom he absolutely hated), but [[HatesEveryoneEqually he doesn't exactly like men either]].

He hates women so much, that despite his rampant homophobia, he'd rather draw {{Bishounen}} yaoi than feature women in his artwork.

[[DoesNotLikeMen Women who don't like men]] will often be portrayed sympathetically, but members of this trope are usually just written as being bad from the start. Consequently, He-Man Woman Haters are very often (but not always) {{Straw Misogynist}}s, while their {{Distaff Counterpart}}s are much less likely to be {{Straw Feminist}}s. (In the case of women who despise female gender, see FemaleMisogynist)

If the male in question hasn't hit puberty yet, that's GirlsHaveCooties. Compare CelibateHero (considers women a distraction), [[PoliticallyIncorrectHero Licensed Sexist]] (good guy with bad views), EffeminateMisogynisticGuy (usually where the gay examples of this trope fall) and StrawMisogynist (Hates women, AndThatsTerrible). [[IThoughtItMeant Not to be confused with]] a (nonexistent) ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse'' spinoff about the titular hero being an example of this trope.

* Shikamaru from ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'' is notorious for his view on women being troublesome and bossy, due to the women in his life (i.e. his mother Yoshino and his friends Temari and Ino, all of them {{Tsundere}}) and the fact that he fights only women in Part I. Despite his view, he has an interest in marriage and raising a family.

* Main character Shingo Chiryuu in the manga ''Manga/GirlsSaurus'' is scared to death of women after being brutally beaten and hospitalized by an incredibly [[FatBastard obese]] female classmate of his, Haruka Nishiharu (who later shows up again... as a beautiful yet brutal {{Tsundere}}, after having to go into a severe diet). The series in general is a {{gender flip}}ped, PlayedForLaughs version of ''BitterVirgin'' (where female lead Hinako DoesNotLikeMen because of her RapeAsDrama background), mainly because they're by the same person, Kusonoki Kei.
