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.

Elementary school teachers are liars! Or, at least, they omit the truth.

When we were young, we learned about historical figures such as explorers, inventors, politicians, artists, and more who were touted as great people.

However, if we look past their great discoveries or triumphs, the people are not all that great. Christopher Columbus is a prime example.

Some people, like the late, great Steve Irwin, indisputably earned the title of good guys. But as we all know thanks to people like Coco Chanel or Bill Cosby, those who paint themselves as good guys are actually bad guys.
