This paraphilia works as follows: a microphilic person will be attracted to a smaller one of the opposite sex.

That is to say, the opposite happens to the macrophilia.

MicrophiliaShrunken woman fetishism

Due to the growing movement of feminist ideas (where supposed the male is to be worth as much as the female), users from various parts have considered that it is sexist to say that michophilia is synonymous with shrunken woman fetishism.

Why? Because when a person is microphile, then that person likes miniature or shrunken people of his/her opposite sex.

If a man is microphile, then he will love shrunken women. Thus, in this case, microphilia is synonymous with shrunken woman fetishism.

However, if a woman is microphile, then she will love shrunken men. In this case, microphilia isn't synonymous with shrunken woman fetishism.

What is exposed here is the argument that feminists use to say that "MicrophiliaShrunken woman fetishism". We see this laudable argument, so throughout this wiki will avoid using the word microphilia as synonymous with shrunken woman fetishism.

The same goes for macrophilia.

Mistake in The Incredible Shrinking Man


Image found in the article, illustrating the alleged microphilia.

The Incredible Shrinking Man is a web page that deals with shrinks or miniatures (men and women) from a scientific point of view.

It has very good information, but in its article about microphilia erroneously considered as a synonym of microphilia the shrunken woman fetishism.

This error is justified because the article was written in the year 2010, which was an era where the feminist movement had not yet been fully liberated, and therefore the machisto was clearly dominant.

On the other hand, it is correct to say that Lady Gaga is microphile because she likes small men (SM). This is valid only because both definitions agreed.
