SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

chauvinist (noun) a blind supporter (of one's own country, group, or sex); usually a man supporting his own sex.

A person, who thinks that their own country is better and more important than the other countries, is a chauvinist. A chauvinist's love extends to their race, their language, their country, etc.. These are racial chauvinists, language chauvinists, etc.. A man who holds that men are superior to women is a male chauvinist.

  • Patriotism, that is, love of one's own country is praiseworthy, but loving it to the extent of hating other countries is the quality of a chauvinist and does a lot of harm to all concerned.
  • Male chauvinists fail to understand that the roles of men and women are complementary; they blindly insist that men are always superior to women.
