People Break Down Which Seemingly Uncivilized Behaviors Are All Too Common In Modern Society

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

"We delight..."

"We delight in the deaths of others as long as we feel it was justified. But when the reverse happens we act all high and mighty like we wouldn't engage in the same behavior."

"Slaughtering each other..."

"Slaughtering each other via warfare to solve political differences. It's standard policy worldwide."

Indeed it is. And it seems impossible to stop.

"Especially..."

"Littering. Especially dropping cigarette butts on the ground/flicking them out the window.

The world is not your personal ashtray/garbage bin."

Every now and then I find new trash in my yard and I am constantly amazed by how nasty people can be.

"Mobbing someone..."

"Mobbing someone because of their opinion or for a comment they made a long time ago, even if that time was yesterday."

NoSoyPoll

"The fact..."

"Xenophobia. The fact that racism and racial violence still exist is an indicator that we're still tribal primates in fancy clothes."

And it makes no sense! It's not based in reality. We are truly a tribal species.

"Shouting..."

"Shouting while arguing, refusing to listen to the opinions of others, basically the inability to debate and maintain proper communication."

"Letting people die..."

"Letting people die of curable conditions simply because they can't afford healthcare."

Probably the biggest reason why much of the Western world looks at the United States with shame in their eyes.

"Parents forcing..."

"Parents forcing their kids to hug family/friends despite the kid being uncomfortable doing it. They feel uncomfortable for a reason."

"During the holiday season..."

"During the holiday season, customers take products off of our online fulfillment carts. Y'all have legs. Get your own."

ShadowUmbreon197

"Using phone speakers..."

"Using phone speakers in public. I don't care what you and your friend think about that restaurant, or how much that Spotify jam speaks to you. Nobody else wants to hear it."

We truly need to stop all of these, don't you think?

Some?

No?

Okay then.

Sometimes being naked isn't the sexiest look there is.

Certain articles of clothing were designed to accentuate all of our gifts.

The mystery a fantastic piece of clothing can create can also heighten the mood.

That's why lingerie is a billion-dollar industry.

Sexy cloth. Can lead to sexy time.

Redditor Great-Tiger6307 wanted to get into the sexy of it all when it comes to choices in fashion.They asked:

"What clothes worn are sexier than being naked?"

God is a big part of life.

It's become a contentious topic in life for many to discuss.

So people are so driven by faith.

And many others find it just a fun fantasy.

But what many of us believe is deeply personal.

And that should be respected.

Redditor Glittering _Leading74 wanted to talk about one of life's most controversial issues: God. They asked:

"Do you think God is real, and why?"

Most of the wild kingdom is far more ingenious and kind than us.

And when they do get "snippy," it's usually in reaction to humans.

They share food, build one another home, and will adopt lost creatures from another family.

We have a lot to learn from them.

Redditor pancakebunny15 wanted to discuss the best knowledge that can be shared about animal kingdom.They asked:

"What is a wholesome animal fact you know?"

Okay hear me out, Zombie apocalypse films all get it wrong.

They focus on things like ammo, cool cars, and buff people trained in hand-to-hand combat (all of which are cool things) but fail to take into consideration that the true hero of the apocalypse is likely to be... secretly freaky suburban moms.
