Phallocentrism is a general focus on the phallus or a tendency to see things from the male point of view.

Etymology

According to the The Literary Encyclopedia, "Phallocentrism is a term first used by the Freudian psychoanalyst Ernest Jones c. 1927 to focus his disagreement with Freud's theory of female sexual identity as being marked by the lack of the phallus, a sense, in other words, of their castration."
