Who hasn't, every now and again, witnessed someone doing something, or behaving a certain way and thought "that's so f*cked up", or something to that extent?

And yet, off-putting as it was to us, and one assumes many others, we will often witness these things happen over and over again.

Leading one to assume that, "f*cked up" as it is, these off-putting behaviors or things are largely accepted in modern society.

Or, everyone simply chooses to ignore it.


Redditor xk543x was curious to hear what tasteless, or inappropriate things people tend to notice, but look the other way, leading them to ask:

"What is something f*cked up that we just ignore?"

Your body is your temple.

"Everyone’s poor eating and sleeping habits."- macaronsforeveryone

Can NOT be ignored.

"Slavery is still a thing."- Pbjabsandwich-

"Child slave labor to make some of the developed countries' goods I'd imagine."- Akira282

Why people don't feel inclined to smile.

"How much dental work costs and the fact that dental insurance covers next to nothing."- OkCat9433

End the stigma

"Mental health."

"As in the regular kind."

"We are overworked and don't have enough time these days to ourselves and our loved ones."- Jackster22

Who can afford to live ANYWHERE?!

"The living cost not being even near matched to the majority of peoples incomes, in the UK anyways."

"The government have advised people that they should use things like gas and electric as sparingly as possible this coming winter if they want to still afford their bills and other necessities."

"Food, petrol, clothes, rent etc."- princessr444

Heartbreaking

"Children dying of hunger."- laperuana

Information traveling at the speed of light... but at what cost?

"The internet's impact on society."

"Most people prefer to go with the grain on common behavior or opinions due to natural human herd mentality, and independent thinking not being very common."

"The problem is the internet gives rise to destructive, toxic, harmful, discriminatory, illogical, and ignorant cultures and ideologies."

"The majority of people who spend lots of time on social media will take influence from social media to fit in without even thinking about what they’re doing, or reflecting on whether what they’re are viewing is good, bad, true, or false."- nsfwcontentthrowaway

Do you know where that came from?

"How everything is made."

"Plastic leagues beyond what our recycling could ever offset, illegally sourced components and materials mined at the expense of local ecosystems."

"Child and essentially slave-labor."

"The list keeps rolling, but I just buy them because I like how the shoes look and I can afford it."- Rip3456·

Some might be genuinely unaware of these things, while others might choose to ignore them.

But these all remain very real problems.

Next time we become aware of something like this, rather than just thinking "that's so f*cked up", maybe we can take some time to research how we can help?

Every little bit counts.

Poor People Share The Most Out Of Touch Advice They've Received From A Rich Person

Successful people who come from humble beginnings usually don't forget where they came from.

But some of those who were already born into privilege and wealth may claim to be compassionate towards people who are financially disadvantaged.

But unless they've lived the experience as someone from the lower class or have a deep understanding of what life is like on the other side, the wealthy will never understand what it's like to be poor.

People Explain Which Teen Movies Made Them Think 'The Older I Get, The More I Agree With The Adult'

There's a fairly common formula in movies geared toward a teenage audience.

A group of teenagers face one central conflict, to varying degrees of importance and severity, but manage to solve it in a surprisingly short manner of time.

The heroes of these films are usually a hodgepodge of traditional high school archetypes (star athlete, math nerd, girl whose beauty is disguised by a pair of glasses), all of whom the intended audience can completely relate to and root for.

And then we have the adult characters, who are often buffoonish stereotypes, or the outright villain, whose sole mission is to ensure the protagonist will not achieve their ultimate goal.

As teenagers, we often find ourselves ready to boo these grown-ups from the minute they appear on the screen.

But when we revisit these movies as adults, we find ourselves noticing that their behavior isn't quite as bad as we remembered.

Or, more shockingly, we actually find ourselves rooting for them!
