which "opposite" are you looking for; a *lover of women, or a hater of *men? and why? 8 )

Hater of men... Words exist to describe concepts and if a word does not exist then the concept might not exist or be thought to exist or have expression, but since the concept and manifestation of women hating men certainly does exist then why is there not an equal word to mysoginist?

Why do I wish to know? --- Idle curiousity and a question to which I have never found an answer.
