imageDonald Trump makes nasty, personal attacks against both men and women. Those he degrades he does by demeaning their looks or intelligence or basic life outcomes, usually those characteristics that resonate most closely with sexual selection standards.

For this, he is often called a misogynist, a hater of women.

And yet men get the same treatment — rude talk about their main traits pertaining to what social scientists sometimes call the mating market.

Despite this, I have never heard him called a misandrist.

Why not?

This is a question not so much about Trump but about contemporary American culture.
