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.

People Break Down Which Foods No Longer Taste As Good As They Used To

Like lots of kids growing up, I did love my candy and my sugar. Truth be told, I wasn't allowed to have as much as I would have liked, but that doesn't mean I didn't sneak some candies whenever I had the opportunity.

Now that I'm older though? My taste buds just aren't the same.

I can't stomach too much of anything super sweet and the idea of chowing down on candy and chocolate the way I see some kids do pretty much grosses me out.

My body thanks me, though!

"What food doesn't taste as good as it used to?"

It's really no secret that most children think their parents are super uncool.

Because of course they are.

Parents didn't have lives or dreams of their own before they had children, right? How could they possibly ever have been fun?

That's sarcasm, by the way. Most people grow out of this attitude, and it usually disappears by the time a kid gets through their teenage years, when pretty much anything their parents do turns their faces red with embarrassment.

But suppose you, the parents, wanted to embarrass your kids anyway, say by reviving a slang term or two?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor the-tinman asked the online community,

"What are some slang terms a 50 year old dad can say to his daughter to embarrass her?"

It's always sad when people don't have anything better to do than throw insults at people.

And yet it happens far too often, between people who see each other on a fairly regular basis, as well as complete strangers.

It's always a good idea to avoid sinking to their level when this happens, and just ignore them and walk on by.

That being said, there is very little more satisfying than coming back at them with just the right choice of words, and leaving them in stunned silence.

Being diagnosed with cancer is news no one ever wants to hear.

For some people, the diagnosis might come as a surprise, with no signs or warnings whatsoever.

Others, however might have detected some irregularities, or suffered from symptoms which led them to believe something wasn't quite right, leading them to run to a doctor.

Only to have their worst fears realized.
