People Explain Which Disgusting Things They Can't Stand But Everyone Else Seems To Love

I eat just about anything, but can't say I'm a fan of okra. Might it have to do with the way it is typically prepared, at least in my experience? It's slimy. It shouldn't be. It would probably taste better fried. But I have friends from the South who swear it is heaven on a plate.

But there's more than food that's disgusting. Like... why do people idolize Joe Exotic, the Tiger King? He's a sexual predator and a criminal. I know we all needed something to watch during lockdown, but damn. Don't tattoo his face on your body!

People shared their opinions after Redditor blackismyfavcolorlol asked the online community,

"What's that one disgusting thing that everybody except you seems to like?"

"It sounds so gross..."

"Deep-fried butter and deep-fried mayonnaise. It sounds so gross but everyone seems to eat it at state fairs or amusement parks."

Kain9wolfy

Yeah... I'll pass.

I love butter. I love mayo. Do they need to be fried, though?

"You know the type..."

"Those social media videos of food being made with so much heavy and greasy s***! You know, the type where it's a whole burger, cooked into a quesadilla with a pound of cheese, then fried and covered in three different sauces."

LongjumpingAd

So unnecessary. And they ultimately become a waste of food because who would actually eat that?

"People who slam..."

"People who slam their friend's faces into birthday cakes. Just stop."

ReikaIsTaken

I would be so pissed if I spent so much money on hair and makeup only to have it ruined.

"You know what..."

"You know what I think is sick and weird? Why do some people take pictures of their dead/dying family members? Like "at the hospital with my aunt," and it's pictures of someone's aunt on breathing tubes unconscious. It makes no sense to me why you would take pictures and put them on social media."

"Or parents..."

"Pictures with babies. Or parents creating Facebook profiles in the name of their children, and those children are like... 3 years old, or less."

V_old

"Well..."

"Well, I know I can't be the only one that finds them disgusting, but long fake nails. Unless you have a serious case of hand-washing OCD, there is no way that can be hygienic."

How do these people wipe after going to the bathroom?!

"The smell..."

"Truffles. The smell makes my stomach turn. I feel like there has to be some kind of bizarre conspiracy or truffle gatherer lobby or something for them to be so expensive."

anneres_urras

"He's a predator..."

"Tiger King.

The guy is a sociopath who manipulated two young straight men into a sexual relationship, which ended in one of them committing suicide. Then he had the audacity to give the most tasteless eulogy in front of the guy's family.

He's a predator and I'm shocked that more non-straight and non-monogamous people aren't speaking up against him being released and getting more screen time."

Metawoo

There are people out there who have gotten tattoos of him. Why would you want a tattoo of a sexual predator on your body?!

"You look like a clown."

"Lip injections. You look like a clown. I don't get it."

sylvikhan

"I have so many friends..."

"Whiskey. I have so many friends who love it, but the moment it touches my tongue I gag immediately, regardless of how expensive it is."

scmillion

Do you hear that sound?

That's me getting ready to hurl.

Some students don't have the best home lives. Some keep it to themselves, but others confide in their teachers.

Curious about various situations, Redditor Delicious_Mastodon83 asked:

People Divulge What Depression Really Feels Like To Them

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
