Or: chauvinist , proposed as a substitute for: male chauvinist / male-chauvinist-pig . Rosalie Maggio in The Dictionary of Bias-Free Usage (1991): '" Chauvinism" used to refer to the view that one's-own country was vastly superior, right or wrong, to all other countries. Dictionaries now also define "chauvinism" as the view that one's-own sex is vastly superior. Either a man or a woman can be a sex-chauvinist .'
