Do you consider yourself more of a misanthrope than a philanthrope or is it the other way around?
if I was weathy...I would be a philanthropist. I've been down way to long to fail to identify with people who need help.
man i dunno, i hate so many people but i would have to pick philanthrope i guess
is there no inbetween? i'm much more into philanthropy as i age, but still have a distaste for certain large groupings of people. usually misanthropes though, so maybe i am a philanthropist.
goddamn punk-ass teenagers
kids in general
the list continues
mine list is really short tho:
people who suck
Mine reads 'people who aren't cool' - so I voted misanthrope.
neither, a happy medium
misanthropy is silly, i hate lots of people but not humanity in general
philanthropy is silly because people don't deserve my money ok
Pretty much what DE said, although I often give money to homeless people when I have any, but I guess that doesn't count because I only do it to get an "I'm such a good person" boner.
I'll have to go with misanthrope. I hate everyone until they can prove to me they are deserving of neutrality, and then have to EARN something positive. I'd give money to charity, but i have enough problems of my own and what little extra I have goes to my friends.
Middle Ground, but leaning more towards philanthropist.
Misanthropy, because I'm usually fucking broke, but if I had enough money to significantly contribute to positive causes, I would.
meh, when my old lady was working she would give ten percent of our monthly income to the church. watching that check get handed over i'd be like, "ffffuuuuuuuuck. there goes a new bike/guitar/supercharger/whatever." she quit and now that im the only source of income its all mine MINE MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE!
oh, the topic: uhh...neither i guess. i'm a confirmed apathiest.
Tithing fucking sucks.
probably misanthrope, but I'm trying real hard to be nice to everybody. I have to be nce where I work, so...
plus, I want to be a fireman, and they help people and stuff
Am I wrong or are people taking the term 'misanthropy' a whole lot too lightly? I interpret it as total hatred, possibly disgust, towards mankind, enough so not to want to for example click around on the internet trying to make friends... Sure I hate lots of people and groups of people, but I think that calling myself a misanthrope would be stretching the term too much. Or I just define it wrong.
Yeah, fotmbm, I think you're spot on there. Doomcifer and J aren't even close to being misanthropes, hell, they've both got friends and even girlfriends/wives. Misanthropes don't socialize with vermin such as lowly human beings.
im a hippie (wannabe)
