11 Things You Need To Stop Making A Big Deal About. Do You Do The Opposite?

As we all know, society and its norms keep transforming occasionally. But sometimes, they do so in unprecedented ways. While some beliefs and practices disappear completely over time, some new ones blow out of proportion like crazy. 

A netizen recently asked, What is something in society that’s blown out of proportion? We couldn’t agree more with the following eleven responses. 

Culture Wars

“All of the culture wars. I don’t get it. Just let people be who they want to be. I’m only on this planet for a very short time. I’m not going to waste this opportunity by getting angry and fighting with others over things that have absolutely nothing to do with me.” 


Cultural Appropriation

“Cultural appropriation.” Nine times out of 10, it’s just an activist dictating what white people can/can’t eat, wear, or celebrate, even who they can marry, or which kids they can adopt.

I find the last one especially appalling as someone with adopted Chinese sisters. You keep culture alive by sharing it, not segregating it.

The 1 out of 10 times it’s legitimate is for cases like Netflix’s Cleopatra.” 


The Size Of Pickup Trucks

“The size of pickup trucks these days. They’re so tall, the starting point guard for some NBA teams wouldn’t be visible from the driver’s seat if they were standing in front of the truck!”


Love For Dogs

Irrational Fear In Societies

“Fear in every society is blown out of proportion.” Said one. 

“I can only speak for the part of America where I live (south Florida suburbs), but people certainly act like it’s the slums. There is such a degree of irrational fear, it borders on mental illness.” Another added 


Social Media Outrage

“Almost every kind of outrage originates on social media. Social media rewards “hot takes.” Opinions that are extreme in one way or another will receive the most attention. Because these become the most dominant due to these sites’ algorithms, it creates the illusion that the most polarizing opinions are representative of the public debate.

In reality, the general public doesn’t care about most issues that are trending on social media in their day-to-day life. It’s only in the insular bubble of these networks that it matters. The issues and opinions on these sites aren’t representative of the real world.” 


The Amount Of Air In A Bag Of Chips

“The amount of air in a bag of chips – I mean, at this point, we’re just buying bags of flavored oxygen with a hint of potato.” Said one. 

“They fill it with nitrogen actually but whatever, but I guess there is oxygen in the chips since they are organic.” Another added 


LGBTQ+ Community

“LGBTQ+ community. A very small part of the population but people make it look like it’s half the population.” Said one.

“I literally rarely hear about them unless a topic comes up where people are trying to discriminate or disenfranchise them. The most they ever cross my mind in everyday life is occasionally seeing a rainbow bumper sticker on a car. 

But for some reason, some people think society is bombarded with Lgbtq stuff because of the media they and their social circle consume.” Another added. 


The Need To Be Woke

“The need to be woke to get notoriety or gain success in any field. Just be good at your job and it will come. You don’t need to be ‘woke’ at every turn and make villains out of non-woke people just because your “woke masterpiece” bombed at the box office/bestsellers/etc.” 


Homeowners Associations

“Homeowners associations. Why does the internet act like these things are devised by Satan to extinguish your right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

Look, homeowners associations exist for a reason. If you don’t like them, that’s fine. What gets me is that no one I see on the internet complaining about them actually lives in one. If you are living under one and complain about it, it begs the question of why you made the most expensive purchase of your life when you knew that there was an HOA?”


Political Differences

“Political differences. Most people are pretty close on what they want politically, yet the media (and social media) turns it into an all-out war of Red vs. Blue.”
