This article aims to identify the attitudes and passions in the misogynist discourses of the two most popular forums of the Spanish Manosphere: Forocoches and The hypothesis underlying the semiotic analysis carried out assumes the relationship between, on the one hand, the passions of the four pathemic microsystems that configure the actantial system of jealousy (Greimas and Fontanille, 1991) and. on the other hand, the hate speeches against women in the most relevant subcultures of the Manosphere: MRA (Men Rights Activists), MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way), PUA (Pick up Artists) and Incels (Involuntary Celibates). The messages of both forums figurativize misogyny through the discursive construction of two "states of the soul": indignation and contempt, whose axiological configuration allows us to determine the characteristics and interactions of the passional simulacrum articulated by the misogynist subjects.
