People Explain What Things We Need To Stop Normalizing ImmediatelyBy Vika https://pictolic.com/article/people-explain-what-things-we-need-to-stop-normalizing-immediately.html
Society functions under the assumption that we’ve all accepted its rules. Money has value because we’ve been told that it does, and we abide by the law to avoid negative consequences. But that doesn’t mean we’re not allowed to question anything. The only way that progress ever occurs is through speaking up about the flaws in the system.
Reddit users have recently been discussing some of the societal standards they have a problem with, so we’ve gathered their thoughts down below. Enjoy reading through their responses, and be sure to upvote the things you don’t consider to be normal either.
That people’s feelings are more important than the truth.
We need to be tolerant of other cultures, religions, ideals, etc. always.
No, there are some objectively terrible beliefs out there that only exist because people insist it’s their culture or any of the above-mentioned.
Slavery, child marriage, marriage rape, stoning homosexuals, hating a group of people because you’re supposed to, considering a sector of humanity lesser because they’re not the right color/ gender etc etc etc.
You as an employer should pay your employee enough, balancing the cost of your service with his salary.
Men can not be abused. Men can not feel emotion. Men are supposed to slap on some bootstraps or, however, it's called, and take it "like a man." It's disgusting.
Healthcare is tied to employment. I don't want to be trapped in a job I hate just so I can get my prescriptions. I have enough savings and a low cost of living so I could do a part-time job but no.. 40 hours for insurance.
Honestly? For individuals to be their community. That's why so many people are suffering. We're a social species, we're supposed to help each other, but instead, we're all just struggling along because society says it's disgraceful to "be a burden upon others".
Ridiculous. We need more empathy and less ego. More connection, less loneliness.
To expect to know things that are not taught to you growing up. Taxes, laws, basic medical care, even from what cleaning chemicals you can mix to how long food lasts in the fridge. Instead, public education is geared towards making sure a student's mindset is ready to be another cog in the economic machine.
That it’s acceptable to let someone die if they don’t have the money to pay for care
As for society in America the expectation for the mother to return to work quickly and have her body "bounce back" ASAP.
Lack of universal healthcare and also how stigmatized certain mental illnesses are as if people choose to be sick
