Casual misogyny, feminism and a strive for authentic life

I’m sad to admit that in daily life I sometimes express misogynistic views and thoughts. It may be a strange peculiarity of the country I currently reside in, but the ordinary women around just seem to be manifold more annoying than men: ignorant, self-confident, loud. That definitely feels like a misogynistic thing to write.

At the same time, many artists and writers whom I admire are women: take for instance Louise Bourgeois, Hannah Arendt or Temple Grandin. Moreover, some of the brightest people I know personally are also women. So how did it happen that in theory any woman has a potential to become a genius thinker and creator, yet an average woman you see around is more likely to take a path in quite the opposite direction?
