It's sad if you think in such way. In such case, you're destroyind yourself as a person, you are becoming a soulless beast(unless you already is). It's sad that misantropes and sociopath exists. If you're think that being misantrope is cool and nice, you have to see a psychologist or, which will be better, psychiatrist.

not sure what the difference is between misanthrope and anti-anthropocentrist... i think of myself as rather the latter, but there are definitely days i can't stand people generally. but usually, i have issues with humanity as a whole, being a selfcentered destructive species, while i can go along with people irl or online, as long as they don't act like total assholes...

I hate human nature to an extent, but not to the point where it makes me look genocidal.

I love how hypocritical misanthropes are. They claim they hate humanity (notice, I said HUMANITY, not society, just like misanthropes don't see the difference)
1.Some of them are misanthropes just so they can be edgy (but then they realise something)
2.Others because they're 'passionate and true' animal lover (though they hate humans, which are animals in the first place), being themselves vegetarians and yell all over the internet (esspecially on youtube)  "Humans suck!!!1 animals r waaay better. luk how this human being abuse de cat!
3.Others hate the society but claim that they hate humans in general, which is not true.

the definition of misanthropy is also a dislike or distrust of people. they gave me enough reasons to be so.

I think you're seeing the word from the point of view of a label, not as a person can be a misanthrope.

I like animals but never, at any time, I didn't consider humans as animals (I feel sorry for humanity because they want to deify their specie and try to forget his animal instincts, but in the end are this that destroy all). And yes, I love using the internet... but who said that I communicate randomly with people (I mean, write without good reason)? Who says I am writing nonsense on forums, in videos or on stamps like this just to get attention? After all "a misanthropist avoid any contact with humanity", right? And I answer you: DEPENDS. I agree that there are people who see this word as a new fad and say they hate humans in general, hate "this destructive specie", blablablablabla but please - DO NOT generalize all people because of a few stupid people.

In my personal case, I began to consider myself a misanthropist at the beginning of my adult life. I don't know if it's the result of my frustration with people or is the result of my stress in my life, but the fact is that people make me mentally tired - ESPECIALLY the closed-minded, ignorant and that prefer blatantly lie than admit they are wrong. I don't live in a cave, I have Internet access (obvious, but how the hell would be writing here?), I have clean clothes and a house... but I avoid the most unnecessarily mingle with people. It is much arrogance and ignorance think that humanity does not is good (after all) because I have lived the "dark side of humanity", as if "what did not work for me will not work for anyone else". :|

Conclusion: I don't trust people and I prefer to live with a few, but I will not shoot any stranger or ignoring anyone interested in talking with me (except when are bullshit). After all, I received education.
One thing is to be kind, the other is to befriend and deliver all its intimacy to strangers.

Most people who are pro-human don't seem to take the crap that the human race does seriously. They'll blow it off with phrases like: "But we have technology.", "We made the UN!", "We made the Olympics!",  etc, etc, etc. Mostly shallow excuses for our most shallow accomplishments.
Technology is certainly useful, but it's not making us behave any better.

Yes, there are good people out there, but they're in the minority. If people think the human race is terrific, watch the traffic on a busy street to get a glimpse of our true nature. How many people are patient, courteous, paying attention to their surroundings, etc? An elderly man gets hit by a car and no one helped him until a police officer just happened to be driving by. And in this age of Smartphones, why couldn't anyone call 911?

There's folks who blame the victim for their rape or other abuse. There's baby farms where unwanted babies get sent to the sex trade.
Yes, we humans are so awesome!

The majority of the problems in life that we face from minor to major are all caused by humans. Technology and good people make it easier, but don't ultimately address the problem at large.

well said. I was thinking that today, that technology hasn't made us any better... thinking back 500 years ago, the human race was still basically the same.  Our instincts will probably always remain the same.
humans are a venomous race... i have found this within my own family and the greater whole. Some of the things we do are unimaginable...at least to me. 
A useless, destructive species and we are doomed to extinction.

I couldn't agree with you more.
Everyone whether they're family or someone random walking down the street are all human and capable of the very same behaviors and actions.
Nah, not unimaginable. Somebody imagined it and brought it to life.

Every species is doomed from the second its created. The natural cycle stops for no species. However, of all the species here on Earth, we're the worst.

Sorry, but our downfall will be caused by apathy, defeatism and a refusal to do good. Who is going to bring down this species, those that love it and wish to help it, or those who say "fuck humanity" and give up? If we are fucked, at least try to help or you will become a self loving narcissistic hypocrite with no right to complain.

Honestly though, misanthropy is the real cancer to our planet because it breeds disdain. Rugged individualism is a self perpetuating cycle wherein the nihilists screw us over, and then creates more misanthropes like you because apparently the misanthropic elite that fucks us over is representative of the species and the answer is to adopt their mentality.

And vile? You misanthropes are edge lords that hate and love the grim dark (unless you're a brony wherein you're just an MRA right libertarian with a victim complex that hates the entire human collective and wants to travel to Pony land).

You misanthropes are vile. You are this:

question: would this planet be better off without humans on it?  if you answer truthfully, you will answer yes.

misanthropes aren't all hateful/destructive in nature.  personally, my philosophy is doing things for the greater good, and human existence will never be for the greater good.  
to help a species to continue on its path of destruction is no help at all.

“We torture and kill two billion sentient living beings every week. 10,000 entire species are wiped out every year because of the actions of one, and we are now facing the sixth mass extinction in cosmological history. If any other organism did this, a biologist would consider them a virus.”

The answer will be no, because some other species will evolve into sentience at some point and they could be just as bad. What makes you think aliens for crying out loud are peaceful and enlightened and not destructive maniacs (Halo, XCOM). I'm sorry, but humans are progressing and to suggest otherwise is the case of spoiled reactionism. Call me a commie bastard or whatever, but humans right now are in the midst of the capitalist phase of production, which while completely fucked up, IS A HUGE ass improvement over feudal and monarchist structures. I'll be damned if we don't inevitably reach to socialism and solve the numerous problems of this system like we did generations before.

It's human nature to progress and every single generation, some rotten apple will say we're fucked, even though we have come a long way from racist feudal lords. Go back in time 100 years and then say we're on the verge of collapse. People thought USSR and USA would nuke each other to oblivion, but we didn't. Some thought slavery would be forever, but it wasn't. Some say gays are to forever be persecuted, but now we have so many standing up for their rights.

Take a stand, and help humanity out, or don't complain that we're evil. (This is directed to all misanthropes, not you specifically).

my concern is not for aliens, good or bad.  
we used to have more socialism (at least here in the UK)decades ago.  but right-wing cunts have taken over, and that includes the idiotic voters warped with twisted greed who vote them in, just to make sure the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor.

human nature does't progress.  there are other animals which have been around for as long as humans, and have their natures changed? think about it.

slavery still exists.

"Slavery sill exists", yeah and it doesn't in 99% of the world, so I guess that's an invalid reason to hate humanity. True, we delved into wage slavery, but the labour movement managed to fight for its rights and now we're fighting for the emancipation of workers in the third world who are seeing some reforms as we speak. I'd encourage you to do your part to help. Defeatism is our damnation, not activism.

"human nature does't progress" Marx and hundreds of years of human history disagree with you. Human nature changes in accordance to material conditions. By your logic, we shouldn't have surpassed the fucking stone age because some reactionary thought agriculture was against his fire deity or some shit. Once again, defeatism doesn't work.

there are other animals which have been around for as long as humans, and have their natures changed? Think about it" That's garbage right there. Humans are far more evolved to other animals and we have the gift of full on sentient thought. If animals evolved, they'd go under a similar progression, but they just did't happen to evolve yet. And who knows what happened if it was the bunnies that evolved to sentience, they could have been worse.

if getting awakened by an alarm at 7am, to go to a job you hate, a job which likely causes both mental and physical ailments, then to come home watch a little tv, eat, sleep and do it all again is not your definition of slavery, then don't know what is.

a man might still kill another man over a woman like a caveman.  
do you know what would happen if some kind of massive global disaster occured where resources like food and water were running scarce? you think we'd help one another? get real... lore of the jungle dude.
we haven't changed.  our instincts have just become pacified with modern day living.
and you think people don't do crazy things in the name of religion anymore??

animals are sentient beings too

Misanthropy is the ultimate form of narcissism and hate. To despise all around you because they were born a certain way is deplorable. Apathy and a refusal to do good will lead to our downfall, not caring for your fellow man and wanting to do your role.

Misanthropy is becoming trendy, but not everyone can claim the other is evil and they are the special one.

does a person who lives in suffering and poverty, who brings a child into this world knowing that child will also suffer, perhaps even go hungry, not committing a despicable act too?

My personal misanthropy is actually caused by my disappointment with humanity as a whole. Primary reason being how the majority of people don't appreciate technology like they should be and freak out about it senselessly. Seriously, all you have to do is say words like 'drone' or 'nuclear' or 'genetic engineering' and they freak out like they're the spawn of Satan. The fact that we haven't be back to the moon in fifty years demonstrates my point enough. Other reasons include people wasting their lives on pointless affairs and the ineffectiveness of the masses just compound it.

sorry i missed this comment.
technology has nothing at all to do with misanthropy (some great misanthropes lived hundreds of years ago). Obviously there is appreciation for technology, but if you look at the world, how far has it really got us?  seems like half the western world is on anti-depressants.
the problem is, when technology outstrips spirituality you get a race of slaves, of robots.  Some adhere to it, others know something is very wrong with this world but don't know what it is.

Technology has as much to do with misanthropy as anything else, hell the greatest examples of human beings not knowing when they've got something good are from hundreds of years ago: Both Leonardo da Vinci and Nicola Tesla pioneered technologies that are still being rediscovered but we wouldn't need to do that if people had taken them seriously at the time.

People's 'appreciation' for technology is limited and selfish. Major problems like Climate Change and Overpopulation could be already solved if humans beings were capable of developing and applying it like they should. But all people want these days is the latest app or smartphone and if someone actually wants to improve things they have to bypass Governments and Public opinion to get anything done (Elon Musk is  modern example of that).

The majority of human beings have always been slaves to one thing or another, this 'modern' generation is just a self created one. Human beings have always been this spiritually inept they just never had to deal with this level of power and sophistication before.

And FYI, there is nothing wrong with robots or by extension any artificial beings. It's not that you said anything it's just that it really grinds my gears that people look down on or outright fear/despise things like A.I. and living machines and deem that acceptable yet go on about have nothing but good words for chaotic organic life forms like animals.

This is certainly an interesting stamp. Putting aside my own personal beliefs, I think it was very brave and admirable of you to put up something like this, especially due to how others may react to it. I'm not trying to brown-nose you or anything; I'm just being honest.
Even though I don't completely agree with you, I can certainly understand why you would feel this way. Heck, I feel this way sometimes as well (especially when I hear about things like the Bystander Effect, Adultism, and how people dehumanize each other over even the smallest differences).

A species which can do so much harm to their own kind, to animals, and to this planet is surely worth a few good doses of hatred. I have become a loner due to my own personal experiences.
