Ok, I know this has been waaaayyyyy overdue for some time, so without further ado, here it is:
noun (pl. -s)
1. The practice of denouncing specific named infraction(s) or transgression(s), and simultaneously committing the named infraction(s) or transgression(s)
2. The practice of verbally embracing idea(s), practice(s), custom(s) or behaviour(s), whilst simultaneously demonstrating disparagment, denigration, minimisation or marginalisation for the same idea(s), practice(s), custom(s) or behaviour(s)
- | When Jenny heard that her friend had been excluded from the hockey team’s party, Jenny banned all hockey players from her parties. | “Even though I worship all women as being superiour to all men, I don’t understand why none of those stupid bitches will date me.” |
Other concurrent elements of this practice can frequently include
- presenting the fact of having been transgressed against and/or a verbally supported ethical standard as if either of those by definition preclude any of the following:
- the possibility of committing the transgression(s)/denigration
- the ability to commit the named transgression(s)/denigration
- responsibility for having committed the transgression(s)/denigration
- inciting others to perpetrate the denigration/transgression(s)
- persistent unawareness of committing the denouncing/perpetration or embracing/denigration, even when clearly highlighted by others
verb (-ised, -ising)
To commit or perpetrate hypocrism
The defining element which distinguishes hypocrism from hypocrisy is the simultaneous nature of denouncing and perpetrating or embracing and denigrating.
