An old term that has presently re-entered the world’s current lexicon is Knuckle Dragger.
Meaning: sort of ape-like, not too smart, a braggart, liar, put down artist, critical of super-smart men or women, and if a woman has an opinion contrary to the knuckle dragger: “She is crooked.” Or “She is crazy.” Or “She is on the rag.” Or “I’d never touch her. She’s not my type.”
Besides the men and women who are not subservient to the knuckle dragger, the knuckle dragger also dislikes minorities of any color and gays of any choice.
Instead of recognizing that the world is a tapestry of different colors in nature and that it is also populated with a tapestry of people of different colors, the knuckle dragger thinks that the color white is superior, even though the knuckle dragger's knuckles metaphorically drag near the ankle.
Believing that they are white and superior to people of other colors, a knuckle dragger often lives in a state of denial. Like for instance: They think they won elections that the numbers prove they legally lost.
