If I hate myself and masturbate, does that make me a hypocrite?

Probable. Though many who masterbate feel a disgust with themselves, so perhaps its fulfilling their own self-loathing.
Only if you believe that masturbation is literally “loving yourself,” which implies that all sex is, in fact, an expression of love, which I think is complete bullshit.
While I like that my vibrator has “love yourself” written on it, I don’t believe it.
I prefer, “pleasure yourself,” or “pamper yourself,” or “indulge yourself.” That is not an act of love, but an act of hedonism.
I think most would agree with you, Notorious, although, unfortunately, there are probably many who also feel “self-loathing” (see Zaid’s comments above). It raises more questions, really, doesn’t it? Whether self-love or self-pleasure or even self abuse, why should such a universal and private act constitute any sort of dilemma? Is the footprint of religion here, do you think?
