Do you believe male chauvinists still exist?

I feel that it must be some way to know or maybe some way to explain to the girls to be aware of them. I don't know???

  • Of course they do. And if you want your girls to stay clear of them raise them to be self sufficient, strong willed and proud of who they are. Assholes prey on those with a low self esteem and no courage...

  • My father is a chauvinist, he genuinely believes he has a right "over" women. Yuck.

  • Oh yes. All the men on my mom's side are terrible! I can remember a few years back my uncle came around Christmas and demanded that my mom go buy him some gift wrap. He muttered about how stupid can she be. doesn't have what's needed. What kind of woman doesn't have wrapping paper at Christmas. HIS wife kept was was needed at all times....

    My other uncle is always making remarks about how women can't do anything mechanical,that they should stick with cooking and cleaning and leave the building stuff to men

  • I live next door to one. One day when the kids and I were playing in the snow and shoveling the driveway he actually asked me why I was doing man's work. He will never ever deal with me because I am a woman. Sad yet amusing most of the time.

  • I have worked with several. They don't like taking instruction from women, have little or no respect for women, think they can do whatever they feel like doing with no responsibility for their actions. When you come across men like that, tell your friends to stay away and why. They may not show all their colors at first, but they will do little things to raise a flag in your mind. How do they talk about their mother? With respect. they are probably ok. If they put her down, be careful. How do they treat a waitress or store clerk? Just watch and listen.

  • Yep. My best friend has been with one going on two years and i hate him. She stays home with HIS kids while he comes and goes as he pleases. Enough said. There's lots more but i'll be on a huge soapbox.
