  •  Chauvinist in the original meaning (5+ / 0-)

    Chauvinist means a kind of "super patriotic", one who is undyingly loyal to the old, losing order in society.  It was a political term from late 19th century France.  Some time in the late TC, a feminist coined the term "male chauvinist" to refer to males who held on to their innate sense of superiority.  But this is not what chauvinist means per se.
