Sexual DictionaryDictionary of the F-Word


Acronym for male-chauvinist-pig , a sexist male who believes in and proclaims the superiority of men over women. Rosalie Maggio in The Dictionary of Bias-Free Usage (1991) recommends chauvinist or sex-chavinist : '" 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 .'
