You may have your own meaning for this word Alice. 

Please share what it means to you because otherwise your blog make-a no sense-a to me. 

Hypocrisy is to have the pretence of a virtuous character whilst otherwise being not so virtuoso. Or pretending to believe something when you do not? 

It’s dissimulation, pretense or sham. Concealing ones real inclination. 

I am frequently a hypocrite with my kids when I tell them to stop watching so much TV and eating so much sugar, and then I curl up with some ice cream and a movie as soon as I am to bed. My hypocrisy is born in a desire to show them the shoulds. 

The thing that could cause outrage there is not the hypocrisy itself since its born in good intentions, but the injustice in the inequality.
