It's hard not to look back on history and be disgusted by a number of things which were at one point deemed acceptable, even not so long ago in the grand scheme of things.

The endless list includes segregation and women not having the right to vote.

We'd certainly like to think that we've come a long way.

But when we look back on how much we, as a culture, have evolved for the better, it also makes us stop and wonder what current customs or practices accepted in society today people twenty years from now will look back on in disgust.


This piqued the curiosity of RedditorSalt-Campaign6402,leading them to take to Reddit to ask:

"What modern day practice/ belief is most likely to be considered barbaric and outdated in the future?"


A revaluation of medical practices

"The way that f*cking speculum is shaped."- PopK0rnAndMMs

"Gynaecology procedures being done with out sedation or some type of proper numbing agent."- baconbutt96

"Chemotherapy."- sphygmomanometito

The end of stigma

"The entire system surrounding mental health."- crapgarbage

More respect for the environment

"Deforestation hopefully."- CrumbledTheCookies

More sustainable materials

"Single use plastics."- Lemilli000000n

Improvements in wages and working hours

"Working long hours to the point of sleep deprivation and exhaustion."

"Right now people brag about it."- HonestlyPizza

"Hustle culture."

"It's a scam made up by the rich to make the poor feel good about being exploited."- whythatusername

More humane treatment of animals

"Breeding dogs that can’t breathe."- username-alrdy-takn

Possible life saving advancements in science?

"I feel like organ transplants from strangers will seem bizarre in the future."

"I imagine we will be able to grow genetically-identical organs and use those instead."- thunderbiird1

Twenty years from now, we'll likely find ourselves relieved that some things have finally changed.

Then too, we might look back in horror at many things we wouldn't even take a second thought about at the time.

Considering how much money these films make, I understand that I am in the minority when I say that Marvel films have absolutely overstayed their welcome. What once seemed fairly innovative—the current generation of the MCU really took off when Iron Man proved to be a tremendous hit—now feels stale.

I accept it, though. These films are not for me and never have been. That's okay. But it'd be great if we could have more room for other great blockbuster films other than yet another superhero movie.

We've all displayed embarrassing behavior or actions at one point or another, and we can't seem to shake off the regretful moment.

It just replays in our minds like an endless boomerang.

We are equally embarrassed for those who may have done something spontaneously foolish and have no clue of the mortifying impact of their actions.

Sex. It's great, but there can be a lot of drama involved.

We're human, how could there not be?

One way to make it easy is to say the right name when you're in the heat of things.

Seriously, we know this sounds like a small thing, but it's monumentally important.

Make sure you know your date's name.

If you don't, take your date to Starbucks and have it written on their cup.

It might be REALLY important later in the evening.
