Agree with all of this. The meanings of the terms aren't exactly the same and 'casually sexist' is probably a better description of Victor. I got curious after reading your post and randomly typed 'sexist vs misogynist' into Google and came up with an article discussing the differences. I tend to agree with someone who was quoted for it: "While sexism demonstrates a disregard and disrespect for women, I always have associated misogyny with something darker, angrier, and more cynical." Though Victor's hurled some pretty biting gender-based insults, somehow it wouldn't surprise me if the character were surprised/bemused to find himself accused of misogyny (which is not to excuse any of the more vile things he says).
