You can be the smartest, most intelligent, groundbreaking genius and still be a trash human. Just because someone has been gifted with unparalleled brains, it doesn’t mean they're not prejudiced, ignorant a*swipes. Just take a look at these historical figures who were misogynists – these philosophers, scientists and authors have said some pretty despicable things about woman. Others have done some really messed up stuff to their wives – looking at you, Albert Einstein!  

These misogynist historical figures may be brilliant but they are garbage people. Check out just how awful they are and be glad they're not alive.
