55. Sexism is a concept, not an action.

Sexism is not the action of misogyny. If you want to run your mouth about my supposed lack of literacy, it would help your case if you yourself didn't demonstrate a lack of comprehension on the subject.

Sexism and misogyny are complex concepts, revolving around similar premises. They are both the embodiment of abjectification and objectification of the "other." What constitutes the other and to what extreme that subject is dehumanized and turned abject is what forms its classification.

Misosgyny is an extreme form of sexism against women. It is not purely an explicit hatred but the harboring and expression of beliefs and actions which either demonstrate a conscious or unconscious hatred for women, or feeds into the systemic hatred of women.

If only the world was as simple as your dictionary. No one would have to write volumes of texts on subjects because three words apparently makes such complex analysis redundant.
