I made a poll regarding my sentence will sound natural or not in a forum. They could choose: Natural, A little unnatural, Unnatural, and I don't understand. (It has 4 options). And this is the sentence that I was asking:
He loathes everyone; I'm the instance.
I mean to say something like he loathes people and I'm also one of those people that he loathes.
A native English speaker voted "I don't understand", which makes me assume that my sentence is incorrect. Could you tell me why this is wrong? I've tried to translate this sentence into my native language and the translation makes sense as what I expect. At first, I wanted to use "I'm an example", but that sounds unspecific and that's why I use the article "the", also I changed the word with its synonym. Do they have the different meaning, by any chance? Thanks!
