I see wiki already has the definition and miriam webster just uses hatred as does collins and the american heritage dictionary.

I think words such as these aren't fixed in the sand. look at racist attitudes over the years, what was considered acceptable is now considered racist.

I wonder is they are going to redefine misandry to be in line with it?
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”
