abhor

If you abhor something, you loath it or find it extremely repugnant. Considering some of the fare that’s on television these days—reality shows come screaming into my mind—I’m amazed that the word abhor isn’t used much more frequently than it is.

Yeah, yeah. Abhor would also work with war, terrorism, murder, rape, slavery, brutal oppression, torture, telemarketing, spam, junk mail, and so on, and so on, but I would definitely abhor the thought of leaving television reality shows off that list.

What I find exceptionally depressing is that I suspect that there are a great many more people out there who will abhor me for suggesting that I abhor reality shows than for suggesting that I abhor war, terrorism, murder, rape, slavery, brutal oppression, and torture.

What a world. What a world.
