If 'misogyny' is hatred of women, 'misandry' is hatred of men, and 'homophobia' is fear of homosexuals, then what is 'misophobia'? Fear of hatred, hatred of fear, or fear of Miso soup?

UPDATE! - And also, do modern, up-to-date misogynists and misandrists prefer to go by the less offensive title of 'msogynist' and 'msandrist' (as first suggested over here)?

Funnily enough, there is such a condition as "mysophobia" (sometimes spelt "misophobia", but wrongly, imo) which describes a fear of dirt or defilement.

As for your second question: no.

All that dirt must make one myserable.

Missophobia = the bachelor's terror of predatory maidens.
