She's both, really, but my main complaint is with her misogyny. How a woman can sit there and argue passionately that her gender is "less than" completely blows my mind.

Tell that to conservative anti-suffrage women Dodgy They exist and they can be more sexist than men

RE: Misogynist Grandmother
Truth is old granny can't really help it. She's a product of a miswired brain and ignorant influences. My advice when dealing with ignorance is to try to be sympathetic and love whatever there is in there that's loveable, especially for a family member who probably craves your acceptance.

I'm not sure I buy that. There's no excuse - especially in this day and age - for not being able to change one's mind/open one's mind to a broader range of ideas.

Well, coma patients might have a pretty good excuse, but that's about it.

She sounds more like a misanthrope who finds the bizarre need to divide her hate for people into arbitrary little compartments to further focus her hatred.

"I hate all women because X. I hate all men because Y."

"That's wonderful. So, you're saying you hate all people because of both X and Y."
