Yes, I Confess

I must say that I finally came to terms with it and embraced my misanthropy.  It might be inaccurate to use the term misanthropy, as once I establish bonds with individual humans, they are deeply profound and lovely.  However, those bonds are rare as the majority of humankind I just can't ******* stand. Let's just say I loathe the collective humankind, that which one may refer to as "humanity." I loathe random people I don't even know on the street.  I loathe other people's kids, unless, once again, I truly get to know them and experience them and the experience is positive.  Usually, my experiences with conspecifics are not positive.  And to make matters more complicated, I dislike certain groups of humans significantly more than other groups of humans.  That's not very unusual. In fact, what I am saying is not unusual at all for many humans.  "People suck" is an echo that stretches for miles and miles across the globe, mirrored in different languages several times.

I completely disagree with heavyduty1. I too loathe people I don't know. That's because I know what to expect from them. There are filthy vile dogs.

I can suggest a complete stranger is filthy and vile because I know from experience what to expect from them. So I have to protect my feelings. I don't bother them and they are no longer welcome in my life, so they no longer bother me.
