repellent的例句

Disgust is a necessary emotion. Without it, our ancestors would have eaten rotten food and died. But more than any other feeling, it is culturally conditioned. Everyone experiences disgust; but what disgusts you depends in large measure on what you are used to and what the people around you deem repellent.

厌恶是一种必要的情绪。没有它,我们的祖先就会因吃腐烂的食物而死去。但与其他感觉相比,它更受文化制约。每个人都会体验到厌恶,但是,你讨厌什么在很大程度上取决于你习惯了什么,以及你周围的人认为什么令人讨厌。
