- Straight: Marcy thinks that women are weak and incompetent and should Stay in the Kitchen.
- Exaggerated: Marcy is the most manliest female of the series who seeks to exterminate any women who show the slightest hint of femininity.
- Downplayed: Marcy mentions once or twice that she wishes Girly Girls would Stop Being Stereotypical, but she doesn't make a federal case out of it.
- Marcy was bullied viciously by a group of girls in her childhood and has a bad relationship with her mother, and due to her trauma decides to punish the entire female race for what five or six did to her.
- Marcy is secretly a lesbian, afraid of coming out, and tries to cover up her feelings by pretending to hate women.
- Marcy's personal experiences with other women confirmed some stereotypes about women. So she assumes that the majority of women act like that.
- Marcy is constantly comparing herself to other women in order to feel better about herself because at least she's not like them.
- Inverted: Straw Feminist/Does Not Like Men
- Gender Inverted:
- Subverted: Marcy is never seen socializing with women, but she later says it's just because she knows mostly guys from work and doesn't get much of a chance to have female friends.
- Double Subverted: But she's not trying to anyway, since she "doesn't want to talk about shoes all day."
- Zig Zagged: Sometimes Marcy is seen hanging out with girls and enjoying herself, but sometimes she's seen with men griping about how annoying they are.
- Averted: Marcy isn't prejudiced against feminine women.
- The writers wanted to do An Aesop on gender equality, and thought the best way to do that would be to make a Strawman in the form of Marcie, who hates women, by virtue of having her change her mind about her gender at the end of her story-line.
- The writers want to do An Aesop about how prejudice can come from unlikely places.

- People call Marcy out on her misogyny, and because of it no girls want to hang with her, and the guys she was hanging out with ditch her too, disgusted with her sexist attitude. This leaves Marcy all alone and with no friends, as well as desperately lonely.
- Everyone are so tired of Marcy's Double Standard, that they decide to enforce her beliefs to make a point... Starting with Marcy.
- Reconstructed: ...that's until she is befriended by misogynistic men and women who hate girly girls just as much as she does.
- Played For Laughs: Marcy has to be reminded on several ocassions that she's also female, usually to the sound of a "Oh yeah, I forgot that".
