New Term: Genderism

Yes, we coined a new term in the posting below.

Christina Hoff Sommers correctly re-characterized contemporary feminism as gender feminism in her book "Who Stole Feminism." Sommmers definition of gender feminism still stands and has become a universal term applied to the brand of feminism that wears misandrist blinders.

But, further refinement is always a good thing. We encourage everyone to begin using the term "genderism" from now on. Using the term "feminism" in any sort of label for today's cult of disaffected misandrists leaves a hint of something positive (e.g., equality for women). We know that achieving something positive is about the last thing they are after.

So, let's purify the term and take it right down to its essence: genderism.

Oh, yes! I like it! Finally a term that doesn't carry the baggage of male-on-female as does "sexism" (it ought to be neutral, but it isn't, in much the same way that we don't call it racism when a minority race rags on a majority race). Good one Iguana!

I agree. Genderism it is.

Genderism has my vote too. Thanks to the muse of verbosity.

Was reading up on how Aboriginal Australian men can be discriminated against in terms of Aboriginal women often being the heads of households.

It's not really sexism, or 'masculinism' per se, so the term 'genderism' in relation to 'racism' fits in quite nicely.
