The disproportionate empathy extended in the direction of men we make too many excuses for.
The judge in the Brock Turner case showed excessive himpathy when he worried more about the rapist's future than the victim's.

Get the himpathy mug.
Sympathy for male perpetrators of violence against women, rather than for female victims of male violence. It is mostly displayed in rape and domestic violence cases, resulting in a slap on the wrist, if anything.
Example of himpathy:

Mother: Your honor, this man kidnapped and raped my daughter at gunpoint and has shown no remorse. Please hold him accountable by sentencing him to prison.
Judge: Prison would be very hard on him and cost him his job. The poor man has suffered enough already. I'm sentencing him to 6 months of probation.
Mother: But your honor, what about my daughter?
Judge: Well maybe she shouldn't have been wearing a skirt. She was clearly asking for it. Next case.
