A feeling of revulsion or strong disapproval aroused by something unpleasant or offensive.
Mid 16th century (in revulsion (sense 2)): from French, or from Latin revulsio(n-), from revuls- ‘torn out’, from the verb revellere (from re- ‘back’ + vellere ‘pull’). revulsion (sense 1) dates from the early 19th century.
