    Yes it has. And this is ingrained evolutionary behaviour that was necessary to propagate the species at the beginning of humanity. Men are wired to take care of women and children. This happened all throughout our human history. Women are wired to take care of children and themselves. So far so good. Until feminism rolled around some 100+ years ago and wanted to change the balance from a "fair" society to an "equal" one instead.

    But now that women have equal Rights, the feminist lobby is using it's influence to exploit this ingrained behaviour by having both men and women concentrate on women's issues only .... as if men have no issues at all. Gynocentricity.

    Men rarely complain about their issues. It is seen as "unmanly". Women do complain about their issues. And feminists still believe we live in the past as if women have no legal Rights, and the whole society is supposed to take on the Responsibility to take care of women as if they are dependents... rather than take care of themselves like the men do with their own Rights and Responsibilities. Men fall into this trap due to the previously mentioned ingrained behaviour. And the society remains gynocentric.

    As we can see though, the women of a society that accepted equality were supposed to have given up any special treatment just because they are women. Otherwise as is occurring in the West, women have BOTH equality when it suits them, but also special treatment (inequality) when -that- suits them. And that is neither fair nor equality for men who have to adjust their behaviours and expectations in order to provide women with that privilege.

    I'd argue since the times of chivalry, as men have been expected to fully care and provide for females for nearly a thousand years as they lounged around and did domestic duties without ever having to earn a living.  

    Modern gynocentrism has changed its focus because of feminism, however, and now it manifests as systematic sexism in criminal and family court, the degradation of males in popular culture, no requirement to sign up for the draft, all while still expecting men to be chivalrous and not being stigmatized for being a stay at home wife.

    It’s never been and still isn’t.  This is one of the lamest trolling topics on this site.  Troll smarter.  Not harder.

    Gynocentrism is something men made up because they like it better when when women are a slave like afterthought.

    NO, it's not. Modern society is patriarchal and it always has been. Why do you think James Brown sang, "It's A Man's World?"

    Society has always been gynocentric but has become more gynocentric under feminist influence.

    Society is and always has been to the beginning of history patriarchal, i.e., not phallocentric, not gynocentric. It has only been relatively recently, within the last hundred years, has there been a movement that's gained more and more traction to create balance. It's only barely been a hundred years that women have even had the right to vote in the United States. It's only been since 1965 that women could own property and have bank accounts in their own name in France. Any notion by anyone that our society, that Western society, is at all gynocentric is only held by utterly ridiculous, misogynist, ignoramuses who are weak as human beings and weak as men and so feel like women gaining an inch towards equality is an assault on their pathetic little manhood.
