The media doesn't need to push anything, it's biological instinct. For as long as humans have been around, men have been kidnapping/raping women for much, much longer than they haven't. And humans evolved into that way things are, it's natural for women to feel and view men as a threat, even in this day and age where usually, they don't have to worry about getting stolen and forced to be a wife, getting raped and pillaged by invaders, or simply clubbed and dragged back to a cave.
They have this instinct, but the modern problem isn't even that they haven't gotten over it, it's that they use it to their benefit. They feel in danger from men instinctively, but they also like Chad, so it benefits them to label men they don't like and don't want as dangerous. Since everyone knows and accepts that women feel threatened by men and want to accomodate them, they'll act in their stead to demonize and alienate the men that women want demonized and alienated.
