    Wait, are we talking about humankind in general or just the coprophiliacs?

    My sometimes self-hate is self-love, or is it the reverse. I am never quite sure.

    I am guilty of resentments which I blow up into existential grudges against mankind. But, at root is really just a basic emotion. It seems like that happens a lot. We have an emotion then we construct an intellectual idea to support it.

    This does not make sense. Would you mind expressing it in such a way that it does, please?

    I've seen this before. I find it interesting to search for justification in feeling something - when feelings do not necessarily have logical underpinnings and seem to be exacerbated by attempts at validation.

    I am projecting the intense emotional venom of my own self-loathing onto the entire human race, in order to draw the potency of the sting to my self esteem by belittling them so ferociously that I end up regarding them as even less than I am wont to regard myself.

    This does not make me truly accept myself or feel at peace, but at least makes me able to face the pain of my existence each day without being overwhelmed with despair at the futility of it all. If I know myself to be an essentially worthless being at core, it is nevertheless a comfort to criticise others until I am assured that they are even less than I.

    Yours,

    Ann Thrope (Miss)

    I don't know if I count as a misanthrope, but, while I find the above critiques to be accurate with regards to a certain category of people who most certainly should be regarded as misanthropes, they would be accusations falsely laid upon a whole nother group (of which I, myself, am a part [and, who knows, may be the only member]), who simply believe in appraising a thing for exactly what it's worth.

    Blame it on me being a Libra.

    High standards for good things make bad things look bad.

    Masochism (not sexual masochism), according to Sartre, is the addiction to failure. So, the fact that I indulge in self-hating behaviors, thoughts, etc. does not mean that they are not intrinsically self-serving. Get it?

    I think it comes from being out of touch or suppressing what you feel.

    Yes. I did not intend to insult your method of wording - if ye honestly enjoy the sensation of self-flagellation I won't knock it.

    I would agree with this.
