Frequently, we normalize things that shouldn’t be normal and should be an outlier, but when something happens so frequently, we tend to look at it as the new norm.
Opinions on this varied greatly from cheating on your partner to advertisements! Here are 5 ridiculous and toxic things that seem to be normalized:
Social Media Videos
A straight-to-the-pointmany said, “Influencers.”
One did not hold back, “The Kardashians and Housewives of anywhere.”
Finally, one said,” Filming and making fun of random strangers, especially at the gym. My confidence is already in a dip since I haven’t shed the Covid weight gain, which is why I’m at the gym. Now I need to worry about some jerk filming me, making fun of benchpress form on TikTok.”
The World Of Beauty
One of the most liked comments was, “All the plastic surgery. People want to look like internet filters.”
Another added, “My husband and I were just talking about this! How is anyone okay with going under and waking up to fake muscles on their stomach? Why?!”
One said, “Giving a one-year-old a tablet.”
Many agreed with this, “I hate parents who prank their kids. Especially the ones where the kid gets upset, and people get angry at the kid getting upset. “Here, son, here’s your Christmas present!” The kid opens the present, and it’s spoiled food. Kid starts crying.”
One user just left this, “Cheating.”
To which another commented, “Definitely. The sudden normalization of ‘side pieces.”
A final user on the topic said, ”How relationships are looked at nowadays, people look for the tiniest problem to level or wait until things are way too terrible. It seems like no one can casually just date anymore, and we’re looking for things to be upset with. That and how much more common hookups are and how normalized cheating is.
Fear Of Aging
An insight user wrote, “Fear of aging. Living in a culture that devalues the elderly. The idea of “anti-aging” as a marketing and sales hook. The abnormality, toxicity, and delusion involved with the pursuit of eternal youth.”
Many agreed that “With age comes wisdom (if you’re doing it right). That wisdom gives you insight about things like the fact that aging doesn’t matter, how cool you seem to others doesn’t matter, and that you should do whatever makes you happy.”
Advertising Medications On TV
“Especially when they don’t say what the drug is for but tell everyone to ask their doctor about it. I wonder how many women asked their doc about Viagra when it came out…lol!”
“The imaginary problems that the politicians are coming up with instead of trying to actually fix real ones.”
“Hustling” and working your ass off to the point of having no life.”
Too Much Sugar in Our Diets
“It’s not just desert either. So many prepared foods have refined sugar in them.”
Banned Ingredients Allowed in North America
“The preservatives we use in our food, outlawed by other countries because they are so unhealthy. I guess that’s “freedom”?
“Why can’t accountability culture be a thing? People mess up. Point out why it’s not cool and give them the space to do better vs. bashing them for not knowing any better.”
