* The Literature/InDeath series: There is one place called Jim's Gym in ''Visions in Death''. Big, burly men go there, and it is no secret that the people there are he-men, and they dislike women intensely. Eve ends up having quite the conversation with the owner Jim. To his credit, he was not happy to hear that one of the man going to his gym is a rapist and a murderer specifically targeting women. So he helps her out saying "[[EvenEvilHasStandards I don't hold with rape.]] [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil Worse than murder, you ask me.]]"
* Colleen [=McCullough=] gives the (real life) Roman renegade Quintus Sertorius this attitude in her ''Literature/MastersOfRome'' series. Sertorius, a brilliant general whose life is soldiering has no time for women except his mother.
* Literature/TrappedOnDraconica: A strange example. He grew up surrounded by female soldiers, idolizes his warrior queen mother and has a great relationship with his sister (who has actually seen more combat then him) but doesn't Princess Daniar seriously and for some reason thinks women care about nothing but shopping and pinning flowers to their dresses. WordOfGod says [[spoiler:this is part of his Jerk Ass Facade because he felt insecure among so many strong women when he himself had never seen combat.]]

** Which adds an interesting dimension to the throwaway line about Rincewind having experienced orgasms, "Some of them even in the company of other people." Though Rincewind is a failed wizard who "takes to magic as a fish takes to fire", so it's entirely possible he doesn't need to abide by these rules. Hopefully. Otherwise his eight son could become a sourcerer -- however the line says "people" not ''"women"''... giving rise to the possibility they were with other men.

*** In ''Discworld/MakingMoney'', it is mentioned that many students turn to necromancy because the style is good for picking up women. They're prohibited from marrying, but, hey, ''marriage'' isn't what they're looking for, you know? [[note]]GeniusBonus: this is ''exactly'' how the rules of "celebacy" worked at Cambridge University in the 16th century.[[/note]] It's not ''necromancy''. It's ''[[UnusualEuphemism Post-Mortem Communication]]''.

** Parodied in ''Discworld/MenAtArms'', when old-school guards Vimes and Colon hate the idea of a dwarf and troll in the watch, but not quite as much as they hate having to allow Angua, a w..., with a timely interuption there. Turns out, [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent it's not the "woman" part of her they dislike]].

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/GuildWars2'', the [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy Charr]] Flame Legion collectively exhibit this (most visibly in their recruiters), including barring their women from carrying weapons. Appropriately, when the other Charr legions turned against the Flame Legion, the battle was decided when Kalla Scorchrazor and her [[AmazonBrigade all-female warband]] joined the fight.

Added DiffLines:

* PlayedForDrama with [[spoiler: Yuzuki Hirano]] from ''VisualNovel/ShallWeDateNinjaShadow'', as his distrust of women comes from his DarkAndTroubledPast where [[spoiler: [[SonOfAWhore his prostitute mother]] abandoned him, and while he was raised by his father's rich family, he's been ''badly'' discriminated for his muddled origins]]. He tends to get over it by the time the SweetPollyOliver PlayerCharacter reveals herself as a woman, but in his own route [[LoveHurts it's explored in a far more painful manner]].

* BarbarianHero Karsa Orlong from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' is not a straight example as he doesn't ''hate'' women, but he does believe them to be inferior, and holds them in deep contempt, initially believing that [[DeliberateValuesDissonance rape is totally okay]]. His interactions with [[HotWitch Samar Dev]] and various other women seem to be improving him for the better, although it's hard to tell completely; nonetheless, he delivers a massive PayEvilUntoEvil moment to [[spoiler:Bidithal]] for his paedophilia and abuse of [[spoiler:Felisin Younger]], which ''appalls'' him.

* ''Anime/{{Vandread}}'' has a planet filled with these. The male population has villianized women and the main character Hibiki has a hard time dealing with the females he shares a ship with. At least at first.

* Billy Blim from the ''Series/{{Angel}}'' third season episode "Billy". Contact with the blood/sweat of Billy triggered male characters to murderous hatred of women. This causes men to assault women close to them, and almost drove Wesley to kill Fred.

* Sontarans in ''Series/DoctorWho'' are a hyper-masculine ProudWarriorRace that hate women, which is made ironic by the fact that they're a OneGenderRace where the males reproduce (via their probic vent). A certain fan theory in certain circles, based mostly on some readings of "The Time Warrior", was that Sontarans are actually biologically female. The New Series introduced Strax, a Sontaran whose misogyny is compounded by the fact that he has no understanding of gender at all and frequently misgenders everyone around him. Also, his two best friends are both women. And he can produce 'enormous quantities of lactic fluid'.

* Subverted by Ron Swanson in Series/ParksAndRecreation. While he goes on about manliness and scorns romance, he doesn't have any contempt for women, and actually holds strong women in a very high regard. To him, manhood isn't about what a male person should be, but what a ''human'' should be.

Interestingly, the ''actual'' Spear Counterpart to DoesNotLikeMen, sympathetic portrayal and all, ''does'' exist -- a vast number of romance novel heroes are exactly that! However, most of the works that get represented on this wiki are [[MostWritersAreMale designed for a different audience]].
