Androcentric refers to something that revolves around men and masculine activities and is dominated by masculine interests or point of view.

An example would be the statement "football is typically considered a very androcentric sport" as it is played mostly by men and men make up a majority of the fanbase. Androcentric societies promote androcentrism - which is the conscious or unconscious promotion of a masculine point of view at the cultural center of society including history, culture, rights, and societal frameworks.
