>Cicero reports that Greek philosophers considered misogyny to be caused by gynophobia, a fear of women:
>"It is the same with other diseases; as the desire of glory, a passion for women, to which the Greeks give the name of philogyneia: and thus all other diseases and sicknesses are generated. But those feelings which are the contrary of these are supposed to have fear for their foundation, as a hatred of women, such as is displayed in the Woman-hater of Atilius; or the hatred of the whole human species, as Timon is reported to have done, whom they call the Misanthrope. Of the same kind is inhospitality. And all these diseases proceed from a certain dread of such things as they hate and avoid." —Cicero, Tusculanae Quaestiones, 1st century BC
Hating women ≠ Keeping them submissive. Not everyone who wants to keep women submissive hates them, but everyone who hates them wants to keep them submissive. The first keeps the woman submissive for her greater good, the second does it out of resentment. But of course feminists interpret all of this, without exception, as Misogyny. Feminism can only develop in the modern day because of Industrialization that allowed more independence from women to men. Before that, women NEEDED to be protected by men. This idea that women were "oppressed" is feminist revisionist bullshit, men are stronger and smarter than women and they fought each other for women. Women were a trophy indoors and a part of the man. After all, he fought for her, he didn't take her out of nowhere.
