    Strict Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all seem to be misogynist. For instance, Orthodox rabbis, Catholic priests, and Moslem imams are all men. Why? Is this true of other religions as well?

    It seems to be a systematical human problem.

    Most are, to some degree. Even Sikhs, who profess equality of the sexes, in practice keep the other sex in the background.
    I suspect it's a function of organized religion - or rather, religious organization. Women are too practical and co-operative to fit neatly into a rigid hierarchy.
    Plus, they're distracting and insist on pointing out when a man makes an ass of himself.
    Cardinals don't like that - they prefer to believe that parading around in a robe and dunce-cap is dignified.

    Interesting article in NYTimes today (Feb 22, 2019) about ISIS. Because of recent setbacks, they are becoming less misogynist, using women as fighters.

    "daddy is home" is an American language term
    it means several things but is interpreted to mean
    the power authority is now in control

    it is innately misogynistic as a form of power & control authority culture of the domestic family unit.

    it has been sexualised by many people to become a sexual domination expression.

    some people use it in a manner that they feel is not misogynistic but like a white male calling his best friend out loud in public a N_gger"
    picture standing in the middle of a busy family fast food shop
    and a young white male says loudly as a hello gesture to his young white male friend who walks in
    "Hey My N_GGER!" !
    so all the customers can hear him.

    the expression "Daddy is home" is the same
