Hi there guys!
Andrezza, I would rather use other expression to it. Chauvinist
is a word that is very related to men (with their perception of power and competitiveness) or to their interests - while touching the subject of macho culture and its so called values.
So, in practice, even being a female with a "female chauvinist woman
, she will be lashed out (mainly) by other women, because her strategy is seen as of one person eager to please (no matter what). And for trying to get "honoray status" (that is, hoping men accept her in their club "as one of us" - men).https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Female_Chauvinist_Pigs
Instead of "She is a male Chauvinist Woman" I am inclined to think that a better way to express that is "she is a woman with a macho culture mindset/mentality
" OR "she is a woman with views/actions based on a macho culture".
What I mean here, it´s not her fault no choice, she was of a time in which a macho culture was/is prevalent and she sincerely (and genuinely) think those values are right (for example, she is against her daughters-in-law and sides with her sons just because they are males - something like that.)
So, in the second case, it wouldn´t be about strategy or to get advantage, but from lack of a parameter of comparison (other that she have seen all her life.) Or something that she do believes it´s right on its own.
I understand that the concept is difficult because most hits on search engines deal with women empowerment and modern issues, along with the fact that that woman that genuinely would think this way would be in disadvantage. With consequences not only to her, but her children as well.
In addition to Donay´s comment - "Machista" can be also be translated into "macho culture". Just for variety´s sake here.
Oops! Second thoughts. Andrezza, you are spot on, since you were answering Angela Pereira, in that way, yes. So, you are right.
One more case of haste makes waste, but at least I brought other definition to the table! The more the merrier.
Don´t sweat it, anyway thanks for your feedback. What counts is that it somehow helped you out.
