Probably, yes. Notice the quotes around "misanthropes" - these people are posers, basically. I'm just pointing out that a lot of people seem to think that being misanthropic is somehow cool.

I think this sums it up nicely.

I would be considered a misanthrope by the definitions listed in this forum, but I don't necessarily consider myself one nor do I go around bragging about the fact that "I hate humans" any more than I go about advertising that I am an anti-theist.

I accept that all people have different opinions and beliefs and leave them alone. It is only when I am pressed or forced into revealing information that I do so, otherwise, I try to have as little contact with the majority of people as I can (internet excluded) and go out of my way to not be bothered.

I have always had a severe distrust for the majority of the human race (not that I am excluding myself from the race itself, but rather that I find it hard to associate with) and it is predominantly based on my experiences as a child and a young adult that were only then reinforced when I got out into 'the real world'.

That's not to say there aren't 'good' people out there, but the jerks seem to outnumber the good people by 3 to 1 not to mention that a majority of the 'good' people do really dumb (and hurtful) things when other people are watching.

Then there is also the fact that while I am an adamant believer of 'having faith in your own ability and being your own person', I can openly say that the majority of decisions that were not 100% in my control were dicked over by people being jerks to other people (mainly, me or my fellow employees, friends, family, etc.)


Insightful post. A lot of people define misanthropy in broad terms, yes, and it makes things a bit confusing when trying to 'categorize' people. I'm similar to you in that I try to keep to myself and be independent, but the key difference is that I have a general trust of the human race as a whole. Perhaps that's what separates a misanthrope from a optimist? Or maybe we should stop trying to categorize people.

Thanks for your thoughts. I learned a lot from them!

Thanks. I do try, even if I am an introvert.

to be honest the term makes me barf in my mouth a little. I also hate it when people go on about loving animals and hating human beings because animals are always nice to them or whatever, makes me want to strand them in the middle of a jungle.

Oh I just realized I already replied to this thread. Mentioned something about capitalism. I wonder if I was high?

yeah, I feel like it might give them a different perspective of animals afterwards (if they survived obviously)

I like animals and people both.
Yet I remain on the borderline when it comes to my feelings towards humanity.

My mother's like that, but it's (mostly) because of her being a germophobe and impatient.

It's hard to imagine all of humanity, but it's much easier to reconcile the numbers by assigning everybody the same denominator. Hatred/Mistrust ..When everybody shows up to be over generalized , they'll probably leave the seat up and the water running.Away all boats!

There are many times now when I hate modern humanity.
Some idiot recently called me a "bully" for sending them an inquiry and not harassing them in anyway, because they did not wish to talk to me apparently, that constitutes "bullying".

It was a question about what happens to a character, you asshole, you're a translator and I thought you'd be able to HELP me! I asked nicely!

This is why interpersonal relationships with people are bad on the internet- they get bad, and people start falsely accusing you of things because they're hypersensitive. An inquisition isn't bullying, yeezus.

Misanthropy is a very appropriate response to humanity's decline nowadays. Childishness reigns as young people decide everywhere that stressing political correctness, or completely defying it, is the way to go - posting their "social justice" and selfies alike. God help this poor generation, and I'm saying that as a devout atheist.
