misogynist

misogynist

[mi-sojuh-nist, mahy‐]

noun: a person who hates, dislikes, mistrusts, or mistreats women.

Misogynist is a word that has been heard a lot in this part of the world in recent years, but it only occurred to me on hearing it again this morning that the word was probably created by a women.

Given folk law, a man would quite possibly have spelt it Mrsogynist, at least initially. After constant use, I suspect that Mrsogynist would most likely have become Msogynist.

Just a thought.
