* ''Series/AgentCarter'' has Peggy's coworkers in the SSR, who initially appear to only exist to make Carter look put upon and oppressed. They're subsequently portrayed as being one step, or more, behind her the entire time (though not so far behind her that they can't complicate her investigation). They eventually start learning better that Peggy and women in general can be far more competent than they give them credit for... ''at the worst possible time'', right as they find out that she's been running around behind their backs, making them think she's a deadly enemy agent. When they interrogate her, she tears into them with a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech calling them on their sexism and pointing out how they made it ''easy'' for her to undermine them (even Sousa, who had until now generally seemed to be free of misogyny; he took the betrayal personally and Peggy calls him out on having a MadonnaWhoreComplex). All of them take the speech to heart and have grown out of this trope by the season's end.

* Leon from ''Webcomic/WhiteDarkLife'' is, along with being unbelievably stupid(even by the standards set by the previous TooDumbToLive character) and secretly plots to take over the world with his patriarchy. For some reason, his best friend is the local StrawFeminist.

Revision needed.
The Straw Misogynist is usually male ([[FemaleMisogynist but not always]]) and [[HeManWomanHater hates or has contempt for women]] in general. Many times, he backs up his theories with pseudo-scientific evidence that men are inherently superior in every domain and that women ought to StayInTheKitchen and grovel at the feet of men in light of these "irrefutable" proofs that all women are worthy of his contempt and ridicule. He is likely to [[WindmillPolitical interpret]] the fact that many women do well in business, science and so on as some kind of insult and attack against him personally. This character often looks very unattractive, [[StrawLoser implying that he has this attitude]] [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything just because he can't get laid]]. When he doesn't, expect him to be either a [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil rapist]], serial killer, DomesticAbuser or some other sort of outright villain. Of course he can easily be both when the author feels especially {{Anvilicious}}.

* In ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'', Al Bundy is portrayed this way a lot, a chauvinist who only judges women (at least those he doesn't know personally) in terms of how good they look eye-candy-wise; those he ''does'' know personally he doesn't get along with at all, especially Marcie. (Who herself is [[StrawFeminist really no better.]]

* The Sontarans from [[{{Recap/DoctorWhoS30E4TheSontaranStratagem}} The Sontaran Stratagem]] and "The Poisen Sky" refer to women being weaker than men. By [[{{Recap/DoctorWho2012CSTheSnowmen}} Christmas 2012]], they're back to being asexuals who have trouble understanding gender at all.

* ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'': Master Pakku is introduced as one, refusing to train Katara in combative waterbending due to her being a girl in the name of it being tradition. However, by the end of his introductory episode he's shown to realize the folly of his ways and how it has personally hurt him.

If they are "meant to be the ideal, brave soldiersfighting against Elsa and her "femnazi" army", in other words, their hateful views are not put in the history to be proven as wrong, they are not strawman, Examples Are Not Arguable
* The "[[VillainProtagonist protagonists]]" of [[Fanfic/MRATrilogy The Most Men's Rights Activist Fanfic Ever Made]] are probably meant to be the ideal, brave soldiers fighting against [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Elsa]] and her [[StrawFeminist "femnazi"]] army. In reality, they're viciously oppressive, psychotic people who want to enslave all women, kill gay men and constantly rape the [[MarySue protagonist]] (though she likes it). [[PoesLaw This may or not be intentional.]]

* ''Film/ThreeHundred'' makes the Persians into a race of these. Unintentionally subverted when the Spartan Queen's witty retort ("Only Spartan women give birth to real men!") still portrays her worth only as [[BabyFactory a means of giving birth to more men]]. ** Especially ironic because, in real life, Achaemenid Persians were actually far less misogynistic than the Greeks. * Lloyd Hooks from ''Film/CloudAtlas'' claims he doesn't take "Women's lib seriously" and says that right in front of IntrepidReporter Luisa Rey.
