RepulsionRepulsion it’s a concept which derives from disgust, a Latin term. Its about act and result of repulsing or repelling (to despise or reject something). For instance: “I am repulsed by people who mistreat animals”, “When tasting the exotic dish, the boy made a gesture of repulsion that was immediately noticed by the rest of the diners”, “The idea of ​​swimming in that polluted river causes me enormous repulsion”.

Disgust can be associated with disgust wave disgust. A person Raised in a western country, she may be repulsed by the idea of ​​eating insects. In other nations, however, these animals are part of the daily diet and are not associated with an unpleasant sensation.

As can be seen, revulsion arises largely from questions socialIn the same way as the stereotyped behavior of heterosexuals and homosexuals, the tastes that are supposedly associated with children according to their sex and many other factors that make up the general characteristics of the people in each region. Vegans, for example, may feel repulsed by a piece of meat, a chicken egg or a piece of cheese, since they do not agree with the consumption of products of animal origin and when seeing these elements they do not see food, but suffering and injustice.

It is often said that one experiences repulsion to being in contact with something very dirty or debris. Within this line, let’s see an example extremely graphic: an individual who must walk barefoot on excrement is sure to feel a huge revulsion. However, while it is normal to think that this is true for most people, there are clear exceptions, either for reasons vocational (as with forensic doctors) u occupational (individuals who are dedicated to the collection of urban waste).

RepulsionThe vocation felt by doctors, both those who are dedicated to the study of the health of humans and other animals, is one of the most difficult for most people to understand, although it is also one of the most necessary to maintain the organization of our current societies. Since childhood, this attraction for living organisms is usually manifested, for knowing the composition of bodies, the functioning of their organs and for finding methods to solve health problems.

A future doctor is not easily impressed: the same picture that is repulsive to most people can be interesting and attractive to a person with this vocation. For example, if an elementary school student feels sick to his stomach and vomits in the hallway, while most of his classmates are probably freaking out, the boy or girl in that group who will dedicate himself to medicine in the future will surely approach to observe and will try to give a hand.

Disgust can also be moral. In this case, what causes repulsion is that which is the opposite of the eigenvalues. A woman may be repulsed by another who abandons her newborn child on the street because she does not feel like caring for him. As protecting descendants is part of what is accepted as natural and correct, abandonment causes aversion.

It is possible to consider, in certain contexts, that the repulsion even occurs on a massive level. Upon transcending the news of a men who murdered his son and then ate his remains, an entire community may experience revulsion at such macabre behavior. These types of events are not normal, but they exist, and human beings are not prepared to accept them; in fact, most cannot or want to imagine them, as they are extremely violent.
