    I think most of us get what misanthrope means, but since the question was one or the other rather than 'are you a misanthrope / someone who only hates his family and thinks everyone else is just gay and lying / someone who deeply suspects every one is evil but is hiding it well / someone who deeply suspects everyone is really nice deep down but is hiding it equally well' etc., etc, then we just picked one to save time. I don't hate humanity, I can just see why we could be considered a cancer on the planet, and were we all to die horribly at once I wouldn't consider it terribly unjust.

    LOL... Well, I am a philanthropist to friends/family and a total misanthrope to others. There are a helluva lot more others than my friends/family so, of the TWO, I'd have to pick misanthrope. EVERY time I try otherwise, I am completely disappointed.
