Women are the rails men run.

Misogyny is a deep hatred or dislike of women/girls. They are also called female-hating. It is the counterpart of Misandry (hate of women towards men/boys) and this a form of sexism. These are persons who abuse, mistreat, and/or dominate over women and girls. It can be physical or emotional abuse or it may be a deep-rooted prejudice against equal rights: a misogynist may see girls and women as evil, debased or even subhuman and mere objects.
