Who is more man-hating? Feminists or non-feminists?

2 08 2009

The stereotype that all feminists hate men is such a ridiculous stereotype that I, along with many of my feminist friends, find it too silly to take seriously.  Researchers at the University of Houston in Texas recently conducted a study to determine whether feminists really hate men.  They interviewed 500 undergraduates using “The Ambivalence Towards Men Inventory”.

The results?  Feminists reported feeling less hostility towards men than non feminists.  So the stereotype that feminists hate men?  Not true, according to this study.  In fact, the opposite is true – non feminists are more man hating.

I don’t know how legitimate this study actually is, but it is pretty interesting.  H/t to the F Word.
