Or if it is, so are "racistic" and "sexistic". Misogynist is a noun and an adjective people.
What you say is untolerantastic.
Used in that way it just sounds wrong though.
You're being too prescriptivistic.
True. And I'm sure if enough people insist on typing "tounge" then eventually tongue will look wrong too. Doesn't stop them being morons.
It's like when you play WoW, and people remind you that rouges are overpowdered.
Merriem-Webster disagrees with OP
Merriam-Webster also accepts "they" as a third person singular pronoun. Therefore it is far off in SJW land.
In deed. I demand a gritty fantasy massive online multiplayer with skin conditions!
The rate of skin conditions could be adjusted by sun exposure and absolute play time.
Also, there will be an immensely hard quest which, if completed, gives you access to a magical youth well, making your skin super smooth and silky!
A diverse range of internet dictionaries seem to disagree with you.
Definition of misogyny
: a hatred of women * lyrics that promote violence and misogyny
play\mə-ˈsä-jə-nəs\ or less commonly
\ˌmi-sə-ˈji-nik, -ˈgī-\ adjective
\mə-ˈsä-jə-nist\ noun or adjective
It is a real word. The others simply have the same noun and adjective form (if someone told you English made sense, they lied).
In addition there's actually more hits on google for misogynistic than misogynist (4,640,000 results vs 4,360,000)
Hmm, I was under the impression that dictionaries were merely descriptive and not prescriptive I suppose it depends on which side of the argument you take. I remain "nonplussed".
You certainly don't mean that you're bewildered and unsure to act, because you acted by posting this thread.
Or are you using the proscribed definition of nonplussed, that is, unfazed or unimpressed? If you're making prescriptive judgments against words used by people, at least be consistent.
Moderator! Moderator! This person just called me a moron.
OK, obviously not calling for actual mod action here. But making too much fun of people making minor grammar and spelling mistakes on an international forum isn't that productive when the intent is clear.
If you are a prescriptivist and do not think dictionaries are prescriptive, then what is prescriptive? Whatever you say?
I think that dictionaries are descriptive but you cannot really think that and still be a prescriptivist.
Erm... I put it in quotes for a reason. It was a little joke.
So... does that mean that it is productive if the intent is unclear?
Anyway, fine, I'm convinced. I shall be using misogynic from now on. Oh... the CFC spellchecker just underlined that...
Ah, that language should work logicfully like this.
I hope you won't regard me as being misandristic for saying this, but it's just like a man to try to cheat women of 13% of the letters they're entitled to in the word to describe hatred of them.
I'm going to try to get misogynistical to catch on. And then misogynisticalificacious.
thread over then?
I don't know. I'm finding it quite addicting.
Separate names with a comma.
