Top Definition
A condition of railing against, and opposing in any way, the construction, installation, locating, etc. of any unwanted or otherwise aesthetically inferior, building, utility, group of people, etc in one's own neighbourhood or region, while finding it perfectly acceptable to put it in somebody else's.
Not wanting a gas power plant within 20 miles of your house because of pollution (while still wanting the electricity) but suggesting perhaps that it goes another 30 miles west into somebody else's -- (and preferably of lesser social standing than one's own) neighbourhood, is an example of NIMBYism
