8.
Distrust of mankind.

What happens when a person feels betrayed after realizing that their personal concept of morality isn't compatible with mankind, yet continues to cling to it as if they were in denial. Basically, many have been living in a Disney-esque bubble all their lives, only to be thrown into the real world with real problems.
Misanthropes, people who subscribe to misanthropy, are frequently people who simply feel betrayed after realizing that their happy-sounding belief that is incompatible with humanity.

1. A practice used by some miserable idiot with no friends who hates mankind because s/he needs to get out more, get laid, etc.

2. An attitude taken by your typical animal-rights activist who has crossed the line beyond all hope of redemption, even reduced to violence against humanity for the unrealistic and brainless obsession with animals who they know nothing about, and who couldn't give a sh*t about them.

3. The reason why some warped people are turned on by animals.

4. A mindset which tricks the user into thinking that they're superior/cleverer/more thoughtful than most of their fellow man, when they're simply taking the easy route.

5. The attitude of a hypocrite who clearly has no decent understanding of the world, and is probably just as bad/sadistic/unpleasant as their fellow man whom they moan and whine about.

6. A sign that you've been hanging around/watching animals for too long, and not understanding them long enough.

7. An obvious signal that someone is an alien in a very poor disguise (probably).
Misanthrope: I HATE HUMANITY! LIONS ARE SO CUTE AND NOBLE WHILE WE ARE EVIL! WE ARE A PESTILENCE! BECAUSE WE EAT MEAT WHEN WE MUSTN'T!

Me: Erm, if you hate us so much, why don't you contribute to our demise and hang yourself?

Misanthrope: Ermmm.....

Me: Yeah. Didn't think so


Misanthropy is the easy way to pretend you're wise and worldly.
