A character has had several bad experiences with the opposite gender and decides to take it out on the entire gender.

In extreme cases, this can occur after only one bad experience. In more extreme cases, they may band together a whole vigilante group. In even more extreme cases, this may lead to Gendercide.

Compare Straw Feminist, Straw Misogynist and Woman Scorned.


Examples:

Western Animation
  • On Daria, Ms. Barch is bitter over her husband leaving her and takes it out on her male students and pretty much any other male who crosses her. But she softens a bit around sensitive Nice Guy Mr. O'Neil after she sees he's one of the good ones.
