I might sound like a cuck but when are we teaching about gender equality, violence, how to dismiss and have a good criteria regarding gender information, how to include and accept people with other sexual orientations and so on. Chile might be the most conservative country about sexual education in the world at the point that it ends up exploding in other ways like a teenage prengancy rate high af and people laughing at someone who said "Gay penis" on TV.

not much better here in america (at least where I live). they don't even teach you how to prevent it, they just say "never ever fuck anyone ever until you're married."

It may be the school you attend/attended. I moved on from school to school for years and where in some places was okay to have teenage sex, in a Christian college that i've attended they were nuts. They showed a video with abortion clips to little kids and started preaching stuff like "God watches you masturbate" or "Sex is just for taking children to earth". And of course, parents were pissed as fuck.

Sex education here in Northern Florida is, or was, nonexistent. Not sure if that's still true but I'm not in school any more to know.

I'm pretty sure it had a sequel movie, as well as a cartoon, made because it was rather popular.

Bad parenting. The majority of parents abuse their children in some way, whether it be physical or verbal.

Depends on your definition of abuse. Is any smacking or shouting at your children abuse? I feel like these can, and often are used appropriately. Letting your kids off without a scolding is just as bad as an occasional smack.

Thoroughly disagreed. Scolding is necessary, scolding is sometimes necessary, smacking is never acceptable. By smacking a child you're teaching them that problems are to be solved violently. Guess I may sound a bit like a hippie but I'm speaking with conviction.

In reality, all he's doing is pushing the same buttons he always has, nothing has changed. The longer he spends here, the more invested he gets, the more he forgets which life is the real one.

I would not really compare the two as a children who were allowed to do whatever they want and children who were victims of physical abuse usually end up completely different.  I guess you could say they would both end up troubled in their adulthood.

So many parents think that they are scolding their children while in reality they are verbally abusing them in some way.  Insulting, screaming, yelling, and all of that stuff will always affect a child in a negative manner.  I would say scolding is okay if it is classified as raising your voice without screaming and expressing disappointment without insulting.

I'm concerned with society's inability to see Donald Drumpf as a hindrance to the continuation of American society. Not that it'll matter soon, since I'll probably be packing my bags to fly off to someplace where I won't be discovered.

Capitalism in it's current form + the economy, mental health care, state of the internet, unfree software, and the education system especially after high school.

american politics is weird, at the moment it looks like it's gonna be a choice between someone that'll ruin the country through racism and someone that'll ruin the country through sexism.

That'd definitely be concerning; I hope nothing comes of it.

On the Economic and Montary / Fiscal side:

Fractional reserve banking coupled with fiat currency is a pretty glaring one. The trillions of dollars in the dirvitoves market is another one that is troubling using methods like credit default swaps.

On Foriegn policy:

Sending arms to foreign countries to fight proxy wars. NATO, and the Military Industrial Complex fighting wars for profit and nation building. Congress not having to vote on weather to go to war. Also the National Defense Authorization Act is really scary.

On Social Freedoms:

SJW and pretty much anything that undermines the constitution. Especially with all these trade agreements like TPP and the powers of the NSA.

*note sorry for the random capitalization of letters. I'm posting from a phone. The above was just my opinion.

Where do I start?

The day to day functioning of our society (in the U.S., specifically) is extremely dependent on readily available and cheap oil; without our assorted petrol products, things would rapidly grind to a halt.  Because of this, we're violating the sovereignty of other countries so that, at the end of the day, our fundamentally unsustainable way of life can stretch on for just a little bit longer.  No one in power or currently vying for such seems remotely concerned by said unsustainability—most of them seem to think, like everyone else, that oil will never ever run out.

Similarly, despite the widely-applauded international climate agreement reached by world leaders in the recent past—the applause and praise for which smells more like wishful thinking than anything else, to say nothing of the actual guidelines of the agreement itself—the coal and oil industries responsible for the carbon emissions are no less thoroughly entrenched in our government's policy-making apparatuses than before.  For that matter, even the most trivial of bills can scarcely scrape through our legislative branch due to the political polarization of our politicians; how in the world does anyone expect something as significant as regulations on big industries to make it through without being gutted?

That's making no mention of the hopelessly malformed electoral system in and of itself.  A potential politician has to be able to cough up millions of dollars to make any sort of serious attempt at a campaign, a sum nigh impossible to accumulate through the donations of constituents.  Thus, they must seek funding from the super-wealthy, which consequently means that they'll enact policies that said benefactors wish to see rather than those helpful to the citizens they allegedly represent—after all, that re-election campaign will rear its head a lot sooner than they think, and they wouldn't want to upset their source of funding and risk losing their cushy job.

We're slowly reverting back to working conditions comparable to the Gilded Age:  Employees being expected to work 50, 60, 70+ hours a week on a regular basis without appropriate compensation—and without any labor unions in most areas, strikes to improve conditions are functionally impossible; business owners accruing monumental sums of wealth while the bulk of their workers make less than living wages (and many of whom must work multiple such jobs just to make ends meet).  And that's just in the United States—I daresay I don't need to comment on the factories in East Asia where conditions are poor enough such that nets are placed outside of the building to keep workers from attempting suicide.

As has been mentioned several times already earlier in this thread, the so-called "social justice warriors" and outrage culture in general are often outright toxic.  These groups are so quick to crucify a person for said person's misdeeds and prejudices that they sometimes forget to check if that person ever said something offensive at all.  The careers and even the lives of these targeted individuals take a back seat to the personal vendettas and inflamed sense of justice of these "warriors"—you'd better hope that you don't touch the wrong person's nerve or cause a particularly sensitive misunderstanding, lest you find yourself out of a job, if not altogether ostracized by society.

I could go on, but this post has gotten long enough.

TL;DR:  Everything is terrible.

Les jeux sont faits. Nous sommes fucked.
