->''"I'd rather hurt a man than love a woman."''
-->--'''[[Wrestling/MickFoley Cactus Jack]]'''

%% One page quote is sufficient.

The (partial) SpearCounterpart to DoesNotLikeMen, this is when one of a character's major defining traits is their hatred of women. Usually portrayed not just as mere sexism, but [[StrawMisogynist unreasoning hate of women]].

This trope is played for laughs more often than not -- often a part of the UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist or the ButtMonkey's personalities. In earlier works a character's outright fear of women was treated as a running gag. Dramatic protagonists who don't like women usually [[HatesEveryoneEqually don't like other men that much more.]] Perpetrators in Crime Dramas will often have this as the root rationale for their crimes against women.

[[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.

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]].

The TropeNamer in this case is ''TheLittleRascals''[[note]][[ThisIndexIsNotAnExample Who aren't actually an example of this trope]][[/note]], who held meetings of the "He-Man Woman Haters Club" on more than one occasion.

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.

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* Yazan Gable from ''ZetaGundam'' always hates seeing women on the battlefield
** There's also Chang Wufei of ''GundamWing'', who held women in deep contempt, considering them weak and inferior. Though his attitude softens ''a bit'' after working along side {{Action Girl}}s Sally Po and Lucrezia Noin.
*** The [[AllThereInTheManual side story]] manga "Episode Zero" implies that this is half because of his ''very'' traditional Chinese-based raising, half a side-effect of [[spoiler: him being a ''widower'' at age 14. Yes, Wufei and the local CuteBruiser Meiran got hitched through an ArrangedMarriage and she ultimately got StuffedIntoTheFridge.]] [[spoiler:Ironically, she died fighting off an invasion force, while Wufei preferred to focus on his studies.]]
** Not as bad in canon as people make it out to be. He was very traditional and showed some contempt, but calling him an outright woman-hater is just {{Flanderization}}, with his worst on-screen offence being to to refer to Noin as "''woman''" in a derogatory way. [[ValuesDissonance Which speaks more from the Imperial China-inspired environment in which he was raised.]]
** Muruta Azrael in ''GundamSEED'' has some traits of this. He expresses surprise upon discovering that Natarle Badgiruel is female, and refers to her condescendingly as "Ms. Captain", while simultaneously coming on to her. He treats both she and her BridgeBunnies as though they were idiots, and is the only character in the entire series to refer to a woman/girl as a bitch.
* Husky the fish-boy, from the manga ''Manga/PlusAnima'' is, admittedly, only ten years old, but he still doesn't care much for girls. Maybe it's because he was forced to crossdress to make a meager living for longer than he'd care to say, or maybe because of a rough experience with an all-girl gang in one of the early chapters (where he lost his most prized possession), but when the bat-girl Nana tried to join the group, he objected rather violently, and said that he hates girls. He eventually softened up... a little. But he still gives Nana grief for being "such a girl" despite being very, very girly himself, and so feminine that he's frequently mistaken for a girl by women and men alike.
** It's actually later revealed that [[spoiler: the reason he became a + Anima is because one of the other queens was jealous of the love the king had for his mother and that Husky was chosen as heir instead of her son so she pushed him into the pond knowing he couldn't swim. He hates women because he sees them as completely petty and shallow with the exception of his mother and later Nana...maybe.]]
* Leo, a former GiantMook who underwent a pseudo HeelFaceTurn in the {{Western}} {{Shojo}} manga ''Manga/{{Miriam}}'', dislikes women so much he's practically enraged when one so much as ''talks'' to him. Miriam constructs an elaborate imaginary backstory for him that, in her mind, would excuse his behavior, which involves several groups of women (his sisters, his female co-workers, his sisters-in-law, etc.) taking advantage of him for his entire life. While her story is farfetched, his attempts at explaining himself, which amount to "they're noisy, and if you deal with them, they cry, and you still can't fight them..." suggest ''something'' along those lines might've actually happened to him, even though he's never been married and doesn't have any sisters.
* Aicho from the shonen manga ''{{Ninku}}'' especially towards Rihoko.
* Main character Shingo Chiryuu in the 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.
* The evil Jadeite in the ''Anime/SailorMoon'' anime spontaneously becomes this in his last episode.
* Yukinari from ''Manga/GirlsBravo'', due to a really bad history with women brought about by his shortness and a temperamental next door neighbor girl; he gets hives all over his body whenever a female so much as gets near him. Woe is him when he finds himself in LadyLand...
* Tasuki from ''FushigiYuugi'' constantly claims he ''hates'' girls. He does end up warming up to - and falling for - Miaka as the story progresses, though... which naturally adds all the more fuel to the accusation that Miaka is a PuritySue.
** That, and he doesn't hate women ''per se'', but had bad experiences with his ''five'' older sisters.
* Heine from ''Manga/DogsBulletsAndCarnage'' is terrified of women, and being around them triggers a berserk rage in him (whether this is the reason for his fear or his fear causes the rage is vague), which seems to stem from his past, which involved him [[spoiler:being biologically modified by a female MadScientist, and eventually killing his "sister" during one of his berserk fits]]. The only females in the cast he can handle being around are Nill, a very cute, meek, unimposing mute girl he helped to rescue, and Naoto, but only from a distance.
* Li [[SpellMyNameWithAnS (or sometimes Ri)]] Kouyuu from ''SaiunkokuMonogatari'' is constantly teased by his self-proclaimed best friend Ran Shuuei for his hatred of women. Well, he doesn't really ''hate'' them, per se, but the idea of having a romance with one is repulsive to him.
* The driving force of the manga ''BoysKingdom''. The main character is the only female student in a school that only just became co-ed, and her love interest and the student council president is an extreme misogynist.
* Nnoitra from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' is highly misogynistic, which is part of the cause of his rivalry with Nel - he didn't want to believe that a woman was stronger than he was [[spoiler: to the point that he banded together with Szayel to cause her to "disappear," reverting her to an amnesiac in a little girl's body taken out of Las Noches by her own fracción.]] He also calls Orihime a "pet" and at one point mocks fellow Espada Halibel. Presumably, the reason he doesn't hate ''her'' as much as he hates Nel is because Halibel wouldn't show him mercy. Nel did, and that's the [[DontYouDarePityMe other part]] of why he hates her so much.
* Kojiro Sakai, fighter pilot aboard the ''IrresponsibleCaptainTylor's'' ship the ''Soyokaze'', is highly gynophobic, warming up only reluctantly to the twins Emi and Yumi Hanner.
* Keima Katsuragi, protagonist of ''Manga/TheWorldGodOnlyKnows'', likes women just fine... as long as they're characters in a DatingSim. Otherwise he openly and proudly has no use for them.
** An interesting case in that he doesn't like men, either. He [[HatesEveryoneEqually hates everybody]], and thinks only girls in [[DatingSim Dating Sims]] are worthwhile.
* Oscar Reuental from ''LegendOfGalacticHeroes'' is extremely misogynistic and dislikes women due to [[FreudianExcuse abandonment issues with his mother]], a trait he expresses by being a big-time TheCasanova. This sharply contrasts his best friend and [[HeterosexualLifePartners Heterosexual Life Partner]] Mittenmeyer, who is HappilyMarried.
* Senoo from ''HokenshitsuNoShinigami'' due to being raised with four borderline abusive sisters and [[InvisibleParents no parents around]] to rein them in.
* 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.
* In ''Manga/WildRock'', while he's hardly a misogynist, Yuuen's brother states he just doesn't ''get'' the what the deal is about women and prefers hunting to girly stuff. Not long after this he meets Emba's sister. [[BabiesEverAfter The end result is predictable]].
* Yamato starts out this way (but gets better) in ''The Diet Goddess'', due to having previously spent all his savings on a woman he liked, only to have her dump him and break his heart. He takes out his anger on Shoko, most likely because she's a girl around his age.
--> '''Yamato:''' Feh. All women are alike.
* Yamazaki from ''Anime/WelcomeToTheNHK'' is one due to a childhood heartbreak. He's convinced that romance is just an artificial concept to profit off of people. However, [[HypocriticalHumor as soon as a girl shows interest in him, he mellows out on his "Go to hell, bitches!" philosophy]].
* Ryuunosuke in ''LightNovel/SakurasouNoPetNaKanojo'' is gynophobic.
* Tousei Aoi from ''Manga/HaikaraSanGaTooru'', who dislikes women because of a FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:his BrainlessBeauty mom all but abandoned him and has serious issues towards women because of that.]] He does, however, warm up to [[spoiler:and later falling for]] Benio, who is the only woman he truely trusts.
* ''{{Berserk}}'' has Wyald, an ape-like apostle who thinks that women's sole purpose on the planet is to be walking objects that men can have sex with, [[RapeAsDrama whether they have a choice or not.]] Interesting in that this trope is played quite disturbingly, while a previous antagonistic character, [[StrawMisogynist General Adon]], was played more humorously.
* Vandread arguably 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.[[/folder]]

[[folder:Comic Books]]
* [[{{Archie}} Jughead]] used to ''define'' this trope, until he started to mellow. Now he's just suspiciously indifferent to them.
* ComicBook/{{Ares}} from MarvelComics doesn't...''hate'' women exactly, but he thinks they're inherently weak and foolish, so much so he refused to allow his son's mother contact with the boy, as her influence would only weaken him.
* Rorschach from ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'' dislikes women and all aspects of sex and sexuality. This is due to his rather [[MommyIssues disturbed childhood involving his abusive mother]], who was a [[SonOfAWhore prostitute]], and his rather over demanding sense of justice. Ironically, it is two [[AndThatsTerrible heinous]] crimes against women that affect him most in his life (Kitty Genovese and Blair Roche).
** Rorschach sees women in [[BlackAndWhiteMorality black and]] [[VisualPun white]], as with everything else in his life. Specifically, he suffers from the madonna/whore complex, where women are either virgins powered with IncorruptiblePurePureness or worthless evil sluts. Genovese and Roche were the sort of women he was able to idealize as the former, which is why he cared about them. Most of the other women in his life, not so much. The only woman in the story who receives actual words of approval from him is the fellow crimefighter Silk Spectre. [[spoiler: He does show a slight sign of character growth when he sees his landlady as a whore, but doesn't reference her sexual escapades in front of her children when he's told they don't know about it.]]
* Max from ''SamAndMax''. He is always confused when he is occasionally attracted to one.
** Technically, the confusion is Sam saying, "You don't even like girls!" Much as people try to put him in one hole or another, Max is Max, and what he actually thinks about women will forever remain a mystery.
* Ryu in Malibu's [[ComicBook/MalibuComicsStreetFighter Street Fighter]] comic calls Chun-Li a mere woman in the middle of a fight.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Fan Fiction]]
* [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica Kyubey]] point blank tells Creator/LewisCarroll in ''FanFic/AHistoryOfMagic'' that the Incubators deliberately invoke this trope to get men to oppress women, since oppressed girls equal girls more willing to take up the Puella Magi mantle. When it starts to backfire by women believing wholeheartedly that they deserve it, he [[spoiler: engineers the publication of ''Literature/AliceInWonderland'' to get girls to start dreaming again.]]

* All men except Vernon Dursley are this in the Harry Potter "fan"fic "Hogwarts School of Prayer and Miracles". They are portrayed as very manly (chest hair is mentioned repeatedly) and while Draco Malfoy true to his original characterisation is the only one who openly admits that he hates women, the others are clearly of the opinion that women should stay in the kitchen, too.
* Basically the whole premise of ''Fanfic/MRATrilogy''.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Animated]]
* According to [[WordOfGod the website]], ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'''s Mantis does not like hanging around with female members of his own species. Considering their [[OutWithABang mating habits]], this is a very JustifiedTrope.
* Grumpy in ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs''. He begrudges having Snow stay in the Dwarves' home and teases the others for giving in to her charms so easily. He softens up eventually, however, and when word comes that she might be in danger, [[CharacterDevelopment he's the one who leads the charge.]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* Eddie Dane from ''MillersCrossing'', probably due to being a {{Gayngster}}.
* Tom Cruise's character from ''{{Magnolia}}''. ("Respect the cock! Tame the cunt!")
* One of the first ''Film/TheThreeStooges'' shorts was called "Woman Hater"' in which the boys join a club that forsakes women. Famous in that all the dialog was in verse. The club--or a reasonable facsimile thereof--was revisited two decades later in the Shemp era, in "Gypped in the Penthouse" (195)
* ''InTheCompanyOfMen'', played fairly straight.
* Marine counter-terrorism expert Rufus Excalibur ffolkes in ''Film/NorthSeaHijack'' (1980). Roger Moore deliberately took on the role of the misogynist [[FatherNeptune old sea dog]] to escape his previous typecasting as the suave, womanising Film/JamesBond and Series/TheSaint.
* The title character in ''Literature/RatmansNotebooks'', which is fitting since the book seems to be loosely based on the real-life case of Ed Gein.
* In ''Film/KillBill'', Pai Mei harbors quite a few prejudices, including a dislike of women, although he seems to hate everyone until they prove themselves. It's hard to tell if he really harbors an extra-strong dislike of women, or simply insults The Bride's femininity by happenstance because he'll basically insult any attribute of any student of his.
* Averted by the main character in ''Film/DeathstalkerIIDuelOfTheTitans'', who plays at being this while confronting a group of guards who are in the middle of harassing the heroine. "Ordinarily I don't mind seeing a woman get a good beating, if she deserves it..."
* Billy in ''Film/{{Buffalo 66}}'' claims that he doesn't like women. It's apparently just bitterness over his complete lack of success with the gender. He gets better.
* J.P. Monroe in ''Film/HellraiserIIIHellOnEarth'' is a well-built hedonist who picks out a different clueless girl from his club every night so he can enjoy them in the bedroom. Afterwards he insults and taunts them that he used them, and throws them out. It's suggested that this is due to a FreudianExcuse of being raped by his mother as a kid, and that he's projecting his hatred for her onto all women.
* Played cruelly straight during ''All Night Long 2: Atrocity''. Where the BigBad is a rich, sadistic, homosexual that hates and does horrible things to women, among other things. He even outright says to one victim: "If not for having babies, you'd be completely useless."
* Henry Higgins in Film/MyFairLady. He even gets two songs about how much he dislikes or just doesn't understand women.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Literature]]
* Peaceable Sherwood of ''Literature/TheSherwoodRing'' by Elizabeth Marie Pope. His uncle/guardian got him enlisted as a soldier during the Revolutionary War (on the Brit side) specifically because Peaceable "refused to marry the half-wit he had selected for me." When his uncle pointed out that acting like a half-wit was the fashion for young ladies of the time, Peaceable said he'd rather die single, and refused to marry until he met a woman as intelligent as he was. In a CrowningMomentOfAwesome, the sister of the soldier he's taken prisoner tricks him into drinking sleeping drops (that he ''knows'' she has on her at the time because (a) he ''saw'' them and (b) she even mentioned them in conversation!) because he finds it all too easy to believe that a woman would be dumb enough to try to pull that off. When he realizes what she's done after the drinking, he promptly proposes marriage before passing out!
* The Wizards of Literature/{{Discworld}} hold gynophobia as a proud tradition because if wizards breed, it can lead to the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt return of Sourcery]]. See, being an eighth son of an eighth son is a guaranteed way to have wizardly powers... and the eighth son of such a wizard is a Sourcerer, a being far more powerful and dangerous than any wizard. Or, as Rincewind describes it:
-->'''Conina:''' What have you wizards got against women, then?
-->'''Rincewind:''' We're not supposed to put anything against women. That's the whole point.
** 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.
** Several books suggest this is treated by [[DirtyOldMan a few wizards]] as an optional guideline, rather than a rule.
*** 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? (GeniusBonus: this is ''exactly'' how the rules of "celebacy" worked at Cambridge University in the 16th century.)
**** It's not ''necromancy''. It's ''[[UnusualEuphemism Post-Mortem Communication]]''.
*** {{Lampshaded}} in ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'' in connection to the AmbiguouslyGay Bengo Macarona:
-->"A lot of that sort of thing about, apparently (...) Besides, if you didn't like the company of men, you wouldn't come here in the first place."
** 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]].
* In a wonderfully [[SpoofAesop spoofed Aesop]] at the end of ''{{Sir Gawain and the Green Knight}}'', Sir Gawain says he's learned to stay away from women because they're all evil, manipulative bitches. Wrong! Let the Green Knight spin the ancient [[WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}} Wheel of Morality]] and illuminate you.
* Bunny, from ''Literature/TheSecretHistory''. Only his girlfriend counts as a ''real'' woman.
* Jed Lacey, Creator/DavidDrake's detective hero from ''Lacey and Friends'', a convicted rapist whose punishment included such severe aversion therapy that he finds it difficult to talk to or even remain in the same room as a woman, let alone touch them. Then they made him a police officer, since it's a CrapsackWorld.
* Sir Bors is described as misogynistic in several retellings of the [[KingArthur Arthurian legend]], particularly T. H. White's ''Literature/TheOnceAndFutureKing''. But despite hating women, he still adheres to the code of chivalry and agrees to defend Queen Guenever's honour when she's accused of poisoning Sir Patrick.
** White subtly hints this stems from Bors being gay and in denial about it -- apparently like White himself.
* ''[[Literature/EarthseaTrilogy Tehanu]]'': ''Every'' unsympathetic man is one of these, especially the wizards. A special mention goes to Aspen, who [[spoiler: enslaves the heroine just because she's a woman. That's it. Sure, he makes a slave of Ged too because he killed his master, but... yeah.]] [[Creator/UrsulaKLeguin Le Guin]] even strips previous characterization to use this trope to turn [[spoiler: Cob, the BigBad immortality seeker from the third book]] into one of these.
** It's worth noting that in Earthsea, women in general and witches in particular are considered suspect. Wizards are celibate because they fear contamination from women, even the sympathetic characters such as Ged.
* Literature/NeroWolfe keeps a relentlessly male household, and appears to have little tolerance for women. His actual attitude is more complex; he hates stupidity and emotional outbursts, and women of mid-20th-century America were trained not to show off their intelligence or to be too unemotional (thought to be a sign of a "man-hating" woman). The few times he encounters a woman who rejects contemporary mores, he's genuinely polite and (for him) friendly.
** The Dead Man from the ''Literature/GarrettPI'' series, whose character is a fantasy/noir homage to Wolfe, voices this attitude in the early novels. By the sixth or seventh book it's pretty clear that it's an affectation more than a deep-seated prejudice, plus a bit of sour grapes (because he ''is'' dead and hence misses out on a sex life).
* ''Literature/TheThreeMusketeers'': Athos has a strong hatred of women, particularly blondes. [[spoiler:Having your wife Miledy turn out to be a branded thief will do that to a man. She's even worse when they meet again.]]
* The planet of Masada in ''Literature/HonorHarrington'' has this as their [[PlanetOfHats hat]]. Their progenitor culture on the planet Grayson has a [[WomenAreWeaker somewhat milder version]] when first introduced, which somewhat dissipates over the course of the series. (Grayson's attitude, societally speaking, is not so much "Women are evil!" as "Women are delicate snowflakes who must be protected!" Given the fact that the colony nearly died out in the first decades after its founding and that its planet is a DeathWorld, they have their reasons. And they do get better.)
* ''Literature/TheObsidianTrilogy'': While the entire city of Armethalieh might as well have its name changed to Misogynyville, Lycaelon Tavadon is a particularly extreme example even for them, especially in the first book.
* An alarming number of the characters in Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy. The first book's Swedish title was ''Men Who Hate Women'' before being adapted to ''The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'' for the English version.
* 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 take BadassPrincess Daniar seriously and for some reason thinks women care about nothing but shopping and pinning flowers to their dresses. [[spoiler: WordOfGod says this is part of his JerkAssFacade because he felt insecure among so many strong women when he himself had never seen combat.]]
* ''Rally Round the Flag, Boys!'' has Oscar Hoffa, a television producer who blames women for reducing male life expectancy.
* ''Gone'''s [[JerkAss Drake]] [[AlwaysChaoticEvil is]] [[EvilFeelsGood a]] [[BadPowersBadPeople monster]] [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast called]] "[[JustifiedTrope Whip]]-[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTIn Hand]]" [[CardCarryingVillain who]] [[ChronicVillainy is]] [[EvilGloating only]] ''sub-textually'' [[StrawmanPolitical misogynistic]] [[UpToEleven until]] [[EvilCannotComprehendGood the]] [[GainaxEnding final book.]] [[labelnote:Note]]Have I made it clear how evil he is?[[/labelnote]]
* In the ''Literature/VorkosiganSaga'' the inhabitants of the all-male CultColony world of Athos are a mild case of this. Their Founding Fathers developed the religious belief that women were the root cause of all male sin. After the invention of UterineReplicator technology they decided to found a colony where even ''images'' of women are forbidden. Although originally intended as a monastery planet, generations of SituationalSexuality has resulted in a society where pretty much EveryoneIsGay. While most Athosians don't actually ''hate'' women, they do fear them because their religious mythology teaches that women have the power to MindControl men and lead them into sin.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* [[CampGay Jack]] of ''Series/WillAndGrace'', who found women physically repulsive (though he wasn't like that in the earlier seasons, making this more of an example of {{Flanderization}}). (Didn't stop him from [[IfItsYouItsOkay sleeping with Karen on occasion]]. Though only in the "6 to 9 hours of unconsciousness whilst occupying the same bed as..." sense.
* Another of the rare gay examples: The "Men on..." sketches on ''Series/InLivingColor''. Every time Blaine and Antoine reviewed ''anything'' involving women (especially attractive ones), they had the same response:
-->"Hated it!"
* Al Bundy of ''Series/MarriedWithChildren'' is probably the most extreme example of hatred of the "fairer sex", yet he still has no issue with lusting after them physically. Although his reasoning stems from wife Peggy draining him emotionally immediately after marriage, in the long run it's assumed from various episodes that he really does love her, much as he denies it.
-->'''Al:''' But first I'm going to find a barber, a real man. A man who likes [[HaveAGayOldTime girls]] but hates women.
** NO MA'AM?
* 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.
-->'''Wes:''' What do you tell a woman with two black eyes? Nothing you haven't already told her twice.
* ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'':
** Warren Mears starts off as a harmless geek, but in Season 6, his anger over his inability to get a date, and subsequent poor luck when he does, leads to him descending into this.
** In Season 7 of the First Evil's favorite minion, Caleb, is a raging misogynist who sees all women as corrupt whores, frequently voicing his hatred of and disgust for women. He considers Buffy and the other Slayers to be a blasphemy because they are girls with SuperStrength.
* Hiroki Makise of ''Series/KamenRiderFourze'' is a frightening version of this. He's a StalkerWithACrush toward multiple girls, holds a StalkerShrine on the prettiest girls in school and desired to crash a bus full of these girls off of an unfinished highway. Tomoko lampshades this in a later episode by stating, "Simply, he's a misogynist."
* Lorenzo in ''Series/{{Leonardo}}'', who has to keep correcting his statements about girls not to include [[SweetPollyOliver Tom/Lisa]], and says making excuses to avoid going on dates is his hobby.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Music]]
* Obviously, the song ''He Man Woman Hater'' by Extreme.
* Arguably, a lot of GangstaRap.
** "Bitches Ain't Shit" by Dr Dre being one of the most egregious examples.
* "Macho Insecurity" by DeadKennedys (a commentary on the trope, not an example)
* "HWH" by punk band the Falling Idols (one of {{Sublime}}'s biggest musical influences) is a particularly disturbing example of this trope. Lyrics available here: http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107859437088/
* Much of Anal Cunt's discography, such as 'Women: Nature's Punching Bag', 'Kill Women', 'You're Pregnant, So I Kicked You in the Stomach', 'I'm Glad I'm Not A Girl' and many more. In an inversion they also have a parody album called 'Picnic Of Love' which contains such gems as 'I Respect Your Feelings As A Woman And A Human' and 'I'd Love To Have Your Daughter's Hand In Marriage'.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:New Media]]
* A common trope to be played straight on [[ImageBoard 4chan.]]
** Any woman who introduces herself on there will be greeted with 'Tits or GTFO'. There's also the belief that there are no girls on the internet.
* 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]].
* Apparently quite common on the internet in general - the women who take the brunt of it, it seems, are women with any kind of blog to do with important issues like religion, sexuality or politics, or in male-dominated fields like video games and engineering. As detailed in this article, and several others, [[http://www.newstatesman.com/blogs/helen-lewis-hasteley/2011/11/comments-rape-abuse-women the abuse these women get is actually quite extreme,]] with threats of sexual violence and out-and-out ''murder.''
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Newspaper Comics]]
* The titular character of ''ComicStrip/LilAbner'' - though he may have just been spooked by the overly aggressive women in his life (Mammy, Daisy Mae, Sadie Hawkins) than any real fear of women.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Professional Wrestling]]
* Most recently, RAW and Smackdown have been featuring less divas matches since adopting the "Supershow" format. Worsening this is Wrestling/MichaelCole, who made an effort to bury the diva matches in what little time they have. This eventually lead to him eating a signature move from Wrestling/EveTorres and being chased out of the Royal Rumble by [[Wrestling/KiaStevens Kharma]].

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* Tamuz from ''{{TabletopGame/Exalted}}'' skirts the line on this one; his Solar mate got a heavy dose of [[WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity the Great Curse]] and subjected him to so much physical and emotional abuse that it drove him to the gay side of the spectrum. He ended up taking a hand in the creation of the Delzahn civilization in the South, and it's implied that his bitterness towards his old mate is why the Delzahn have a long string of misogynist cultural practices. [[ReincarnationRomance In a prime show of Fate being a fickle bitch, his Lunar boyfriend recently reincarnated... as a young girl]].
** From the same game, one of the Lunar Exalted mentioned in the Halta sourcebook is a son of Raksi, the Queen of Fangs, who has taken an affinity for the spider and so really doesn't like to be around women much, because of the spider instincts. The fact he used to be [[ParentalIncest Raksi's]] [[{{squick}} lover]] probably doesn't help.
* In the [[AntiMagicalFaction Banishers]] sourcebook for ''TabletopGame/MageTheAwakening'', one of the sample Banishers is a Thyrsus Banisher who engages in cannibalism and is a noted misogynist, especially fearing/hating female mages who are also Thyrsus. This is fuelled by his symbolic connection to spiders; he sees himself as a spider in human form, and if he's a male spider, then that means a female spider is his worst enemy.

[[folder:Theatre]]
* Professor Henry Higgins from ''Theatre/MyFairLady'' is very misogynistic, though he insists he's not. In fact, he's got two whole songs dedicated to whining about how much he dislikes women ("An Ordinary Man" and "A Hymn to Him" a.k.a. "Why Can't a Woman Be More Like a Man?"). The end of the play may have helped him get over it, but again, it's up to viewer interpretation.
* Petrucho in ''Theatre/TheTamingOfTheShrew''. Also Benedick in ''MuchAdoAboutNothing'', although that's mostly just a cover to [[SlapSlapKiss hide his feelings]] for Beatrice.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* Adell, the main character of ''VideoGame/{{Disgaea 2|CursedMemories}}'', "does not like girls" because of an attempted childhood [[DealWithTheDevil deal with a succubus]] gone south that left his face [[GoodScarsEvilScars with a pair of Inigo Montoya-style scars]] and nearly killed him. He ends up [[spoiler:making an exception for Rozalin]] in the end, but he's still a bit queasy around most women.
* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars Z'' gives us Reuben General of the Chimera squad. A seemingly dashing {{Bishonen}} on the first glance, it turns out to be a [[ObfuscatingStupidity mask]] and he quickly reveals his true self: an AxCrazy woman hater, fueled with a certain FreudianExcuse, the only woman he trusted is his leader. Setsuko still thought of him in a quite high opinion, as even though he is a woman-hater, what he did couldn't match what Asakim did to her.
** Reuben's mostly a Jerkass in general though. He hates the male lead Rand just as much as he hates Setsuko. He hates everyone in the world except Edel his leader who he adores, and Shuran who's apprantly the only person in the world he's willing to hang out with.
* Miles Edgeworth of ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' isn't particularly misogynist but he absolutely does not understand his ChickMagnet nature and has no interest in taking advantage of it. This, combined with some of his [[HoYay attitudes towards Phoenix Wright]] and his [[RealMenWearPink dress sense]], encourage some to believe he's either gay, asexual, or just doesn't care much about women.
* Issei Ryudou of ''FateStayNight'', who appears to be highly dismissive or flustered concerning women in general and considers the school idol Rin Tohsaka to be his arch-enemy, and also the spawn of the devil. [[BitchInSheepsClothing He's not]] ''[[BitchInSheepsClothing that]]'' [[BitchInSheepsClothing far off]] about that, all things considered. On the other hand, he thinks Saber is practically angelic.
** This leads to a [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]] encounter with [[FilleFatale Ilya]] in ''Fate/hollow ataraxia''.
* Kenji from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'', with his belief in a vast feminist conspiracy that aims to TakeOverTheWorld and that his school (with a 6-4 female/male ratio) will be a prime battleground, probably qualifies. Interestingly, in one route he reveals that he once had a girlfriend, and clarifies that he doesn't actually hate women; what he hates are feminists. That said, he seems to assume that all women are feminists unless proven otherwise. So far, said women only seem to include his mother, Lilly (who is in the same class as him) and Rin (who he mistakenly assumes is actually a guy due to his poor eyesight).
* While not outright hating women, Guy Cecil from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' is absolutely terrified of them. This is at first played for laughs, but then it's shown to have stemmed from a highly traumatic incident in his past... after which it's played for laughs again.
** He's shown to be something of a natural charmer, and one skit shows that he's attracted to women.
* [[spoiler:Tohru Adachi]] of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' shows some degree of this when he's revealed as the killer. Openly referring to women as [[MemeticMutation "Bitches and Whores"]] (okay, [[BeamMeUpScotty he doesn't actually say that exactly]], but you get the idea), his murders of Mayumi Yamano and Saki Konishi were motivated by a mix of [[StalkerWithACrush lust]] and pure misogyny (with a bit of ForTheEvulz).
** Earlier, [[CampGay Shadow Kanji]] presented himself this way, ranting on how women in general are very scary and he prefers men overall. This is actually more complex as it was actually a {{Deconstruction}} of Kanji's [[RealMenWearPink rather feminine hobbies]].
** Daisuke Nagase. Daisuke feels really bad for a middle school break-up with his first girlfriend that he fears failing at doing his very best in either at soccer or getting a girlfriend. With that in mind, Kou and the protagonist try to set him up with blind dates, but Daisuke gets irritated by this. At the end of his Social Link, Daisuke finds the strength to move on by speaking to the same girlfriend that left him behind.
* [[spoiler: Alvis of Velthomer]] of ''[[FireEmblemJugdral Fire Emblem: Seisen no Keifu]]'' has serious issues with the female gender. This is less about outright hatred and more as a consequence of a ''seriously'' DarkAndTroubledPast. [[spoiler:His much-hated father, Duke Victor of Velthomer, was a {{Jerkass}} who drove Alvis's beloved and idealized mother Cigyun into despair with his TheCasanova 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 cheated on him with Prince Kurth of Grandbell; when Viktor found out about ''that'', he killed himself, and Cigyun left Velthomer to never return.]] This drove Alvis to kick almost all the women out of the Velthomer court [[spoiler: (save for Azel's mother)]] and to distance himself from women for many years... except for two women: his right hand woman Aida ([[spoiler:and mother of Cyas, ''his'' HeroicBastard son]]) and the girl he would marry - [[spoiler: Diadora... Cigyun and Kurth's daughter and his half-sister, ''and'' [[TragicHero Lord Siglud]]'s wife.]] [[MindScrew It's very, VERY complicated]].
* James Tobin is implied to be at least this in the game ''InThe1stDegree''. He had a divorce from his wife Helen, which apparently caused him to go on a downward spiral. He sleeps around, and was at least physically abusive towards his girlfriend Ruby. If you play the game right, you can ask him about the phone conversation he had with Zack. When Granger brings up the fact that Yvonne says that she witnessed a fight between him and her husband Zack, he'll end up claiming "She's lying! The ''bitch'' is lying!" Later on, Granger brings up Ruby, "the woman Tobin loved", at which point Tobin growls under his breath "That lying whore!" It becomes pretty clear that Tobin does not seem to like women very much.
* Kotaro Fuuma of ''{{Onimusha}} 2: Samurai's Destiny'' has a deep distrust and dislike of women, and is openly hostile to Oyu, mainly for being a woman. It is later [[FreudianExcuse revealed that his dislike stems from his belief]] [[MissingMom that his mother]] [[ParentalAbandonment abandoned him]]. [[spoiler:Depending on Kotaro's friendship values with Jubei, Kotaro will end up [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice mortally wounded]], and as he dies he finally realises that his mother never abandoned him - she actually died protecting him.]] It is also worth noting that Kotaro is portrayed a lot more sympathetically than many other characters who qualify for this trope.
* Falco Lombardi, of ''Series/StarFox '' fame, is revealed to be this in the ''Farewell, Beloved Falco'' comic [[NoExportForYou released only in Japan.]] In it, he explains to Katt, his StalkerWithACrush, that he isn't - and never will be - interested in settling down with a woman. The comic and the games never really explore the plot thread and the reasoning behind it (though common fan theories have him as gay, asexual, or simply too engrossed in the adventurous life of a pilot to bother with romance), but it is given a subtle nod in ''VideoGame/StarFoxCommand'' when Falco is the only character not to have a child in any of the endings.
* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' has Lon'qu, who has a strong aversion to women thanks to a DarkAndTroubledPast.

[[folder:Webcomics]]
* Vincent from ''MyLifeInBlue'', despite the fact that his [[PretendPrejudice best friend]], [[FagHag Alison]], is female.
* Stunt from ''DominicDeegan'', to an almost ridiculous degree. Tends to be played up a lot more when he's acting as an [[DesignatedMonkey authorial punching bag]].
* Wrecking Paul of ''EverydayHeroes'', who's clumsy AffablyEvil persona was actually a {{Masquerade}} to hide the fact that he was a serial killer who targeted women. He's not discovered until he kills one of his teammates - because the female hero he'd targeted (under the guise of robbing the building she was guarding) was replaced with a male.
* Psycho Mantis from ''TheLastDaysOfFoxhound''. The VideoGame incarnation's dislike of human sexuality is {{flanderiz|ation}}ed into describing all women as 'whorebags' and having a ''violent'' reaction to being approached by them -- at one point he would rather fall to his death than let Sniper Wolf pull him to safety.
* Conrad of ''HannaIsNotABoysName'' is a pretty prickly guy in general, but he harbors a startlingly violent terror/hatred of women in particular, for [[AmbiguouslyGay reasons unknown]].
** In his defense, the first couple women we see him interacting with are Hanna's terrifying landlady, and then the female vampire who beat him up, drove him out of his house, and [[spoiler: [[IHateYouVampireDad sired him]]]]. So, that's understandable. And he doesn't seem to mind Toni.
* Hunter of ''CodeNameHunter''. Flashback comics have implied that Hunter was a severe gynophobe, to the point where his inability to work with female agents was threatening his job. Current comics show that he got better (implied to be due to being forced to pair with Gypsy - they were each other's last chance). Now he's simply [[TwiceShy painfully shy]] around women who aren't Gypsy.
* Jack of ''MayonakaDensha'' fits this trope well. While he doesn't care too much for humanity as a whole, he seems to have something against women in particular for no discernible reason besides a slight hinting that he may have had some traumatic experience during his childhood.
* [[GenderBender Gender-bent]] BarbarianHero Typhan-Knee/Tiffany from {{Exiern}}: Even direct experience as a woman proving many of his preconceived notions about women wrong can't really shake those prejudices loose (He basically credits his accomplishments in female form more to his own awesomeness than being wrong about women).
* Walky in ''WebComic/DumbingOfAge'', as stated [[http://www.dumbingofage.com/2010/comic/book-1/03-men-are-from-beck-women-are-from-clark/pervert/ here]]. (Although actually he's already fallen for Dorothy and is just in denial about it.) Given his own self-admitted maturity issues, only his age keeps this from being GirlsHaveCooties.
* Kronar in ''Webcomic/{{Oglaf}}'' takes this to the extreme that he [[HomosexualReproduction successfully procreates]] with [[MisterSeahorse other barbarian men]].
** When his newborn son turns out to be a girl he throws her to the wolves, then accepts her as his son when she tears the wolves apart.

[[folder:Web Original]]
* ''TheBestPageInTheUniverse'': Tongue in cheek, although a lot of people don't seem to realize this.
* ''MenAreBetterThanWomen'': Another tongue in cheek humor site, although Dick Masterson never breaks character whereas Maddox occasionally does.
** Depending on who you ask, it's considered SeriousBusiness by others.
* Gordon Bennet from ''WebOriginal/TheWarComms'' ''is'' this trope. His [[StalkerWithACrush admirer]] Patrick Wells is a lighter version, falling more into GirlsHaveCooties due to his immaturity.
* WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses is often prone to women-hating rants. Some are due to bad past experiences, others are just because he's a {{jerkass}}.
* {{Reddit}} is notorious for this.
* Ghost from ''Radio/TrueCapitalist Radio'' is a massive misogynist. Any female caller that isn't a known fan (or a Pony) will always be met with "Get back in the kitchen" or "Dishrag whore". He notes his favorite scene in ''MidnightCowboy'' is when a woman gets beaten. He's dedicated shows to explaining how Mother's Day is a feminist conspiracy. The list goes on.
* Depressingly common in many gaming and technically-oriented forums.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''Plane Daffy'', a WartimeCartoon in the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' series had Daffy Duck as a woman-hating messenger bird being used to get a secret past a spy who had been seducing messengers.
-->I'll do the job, I'm a woman hater!
-->She won't get to first base, this Hatta Mari tomater!
* Murderface from ''{{Metalocalypse}}'' is labeled as a "classic woman hater" by the band and calls women "soul murderers", and he's only ever nice to them when he wants them to sleep with him, which almost always backfires.
** Maybe there's a little bit of FridgeBrilliance there if his advances are always rejected.
** 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).
* Cotton Hill on ''KingOfTheHill'' enjoys aspects of women (specifically, them cooking for him, cleaning for him, and having sex with him), but anything other than that any woman he meets annoys him and he generally acts with hostility to women he meets (especially Peggy).
** His major PetTheDog moment is when he helps her regain her ability to walk and take care of herself after her skydiving accident, by becoming her personal DrillSergeantNasty.
*** He also helps her get her job back when she was fired for spanking a student, though it was more from his belief in spanking.
** The only woman he truly loved was a Japanese nurse named Mihiko. He developed a relationship with her after the end of World War II and since soldiers were not allowed to have relationships with the locals they hid their love, and he was sad when his fleet took off and tried to delay them as long as possible. Years later they reconciled and he apologized for his actions but he unknowingly fathered a son with her named Junichiro and it took quite a bit of his trust to accept him as a father.
