Being a teenager comes with several ups and downs.

Perhaps the biggest downside of one's teenage years, is the looming reality of adulthood being just around the corner.

That the time when you can no longer depend on your parents as a safety net, and must eventually start supporting yourself is fast approaching.

Of course, most teenagers will choose to ignore this reality, and cherish each moment of their vanishing youth.

As a result, they might not react too kindly when being faced with certain information, if they're even willing to hear it.


Redditor Slight_Weight_7053 was curious to hear all the things modern teenagers are either not ready, or unwilling to hear, leading them to ask:
"What are teens today not ready to hear?"

We've sure been hearing the term "conspiracy theory" a lot lately.

And if history has taught us anything, it's that it would do us all good to avoid them altogether as they are rooted in falsehoods tied to clandestine government plans and sinister plots–which, yeah, doesn't sound good.

But like anyone spinning a rumor, people tend to latch on to spurious information that cannot be verified by science or fact because it's just easy to go along with it without taking the time for research.
