    I hate people basically,

    everything that they do ticks me off. I hate human anatomy, humans are disgust me. For example how they eat and fart and poop and burp.. I also hate the necessity of doing all those things as a human. I would rather not exist. This is not even getting into their behavior which...

    Realizations

    I've been a misanthrope since roughly 7 years old.  I was that odd kid down the street that was almost never seen outside, and who actively avoided playing with the other kids, usually out of a misunderstood (at the time) sense of disgust. I'm now 37, and only in the last 6...

    Misanthropy is the natural allergic reaction

    had by an intelligent, thinking person when confronted by a world of tribalized, reactionary proto-humans.

    Am I Misanthropic?

    I hate people, plain and simple. I am 22-years old and, while I try to maintain a normal social life and connect with other people, I can't help but feel so detached from humanity - like I'm viewing life through a dirty lens. I look at people and all I see are pathetic, stupid...

    People are so dumb! I mean,

    i think they are blind or somewhat. Once i thought my family was different, i thought they had a better understanding in life and were not chained by these social matters (vanity, money, job, social prestige, and all this crap). But as times passed by i realized they're just...

    Humans are the reason there are

    so many flaws in this world. Including pollution and war. We are the most hateful species to live on Earth. It's the ugly truth.

    Everyone. People are

    so pathetic and evil. They take their baths in money on a daily basis while 1/3 of the world is starving. That fact makes me sick. Stupid, ignorant people. You can't prove them anything, but again, they are so easily influenced by the media. They take things like football...

    The dictionary definition

    for misanthrope includes the phrase “hates or scorns mankind.” I would prefer a definition that includes the phrase: “is profoundly disappointed in mankind.”

    I've read a list of experiences on misanthropy,

    and I would say that my particular instance isn't much the same as others, although it is. Since elementary school I have seen everyone as the same. I never knew why, but I always felt like everyone's just a clone. Probably because of a limited variation of personality, I...

    I hate humankind but it doesn't mean I hate

    them all. It's impossible to hate everybody. That's an another reason why I hate humans (even myself but I'm not an emo) . Emotions. Emotions control people and turns people to stupid, love-sick, blind and ignorant disgusting , cruel things.

    Like A Rabid Dog

    Misanthropy is the general hatred, mistrust or disdain of the human species and/or human nature. I've displayed definite sociopathic traits but I don't think that's it. But I'm very aware of my hatred for humans. I hate how predictable they are. Like a rabid dog endlessly...

    Mainly because of a) our stupid society

    ones I will ever share on here. I don't like most of humanity. I like many people and even inspired by others. On the other hand, I feel like so many humans are egotistical animals. Greed, anger, jealousy, immense sadness, idolization, fear, ect. I see this on a daily basis...

    Proud Misanthrope

    I'm proud to be a misanthrope. I feel it's an enlightening, motivating, and positive state of mind. Therapy will try to convince you that it's "unhealthy" and that you should try to connect and form loving relationships with the outside world. That's because of conformity and the...

    I'm a misanthrope.  Like many misanthropes, I do not dislike EVERYBODY.  But my tendency is to dislike the vast majority of the "public."  I do not care for "aquaintances."  Aquaintances bore me to tears.  Either someone is a true...

    When I was younger, I had a large amount of hate

    when it comes to people. Honestly and truthfully hated people. Funny enough when I actually discovered the word Misanthrope, I just felt a sort of pity for people afterwards. I just pity the ignorant and materialistic people, that surrounds me everyday.

    People are selfish and don't care about you.

    Relationships of any kind are pointless because ultimately people just use you. Even the mother-child relationship is selfish. Women have children because they want to. Nobody asks kids if they want to be born. If I was asked I would say no.
