#1 Words I used to pretend to understand
This actually means "hatred, dislike, or distrust of humankind". No wonder I never knew what this word actually meant. I clearly have no use for it. These miserable gits have a whole blog dedicated to it, www.misanthropytoday.com
I heard it on Radio 4 today in reference to Chekov. Apparently he held a misanthropic view of the people of Yalta, describing the women as vulgar and smelling of ice-cream. Is that a bad thing?
Anyway, now we both know what it means.
Misanthropy - hatred or distrust of humankind.
