Sexism or the action of one being sexist refers to a negative discrimination or even hatred towards one gender. This may be exhibited on different levels, from a belief that one sex is superior to another (male or female chauvinism), to a hatred of males (misandry) or females (misogyny). The term sexism can also refer to the attitude of someone imposing a false or limited masculinity on males or femininity on females - or vice versa, and a mistrust of a particular sex - usually on a subconscious level.
