What's the dumbest thing your culture does?

Idolizing rich and famous people.
@Colonelmustardseed The one with the worst rep is Paula Abdul, a miserable drunk that fires assistants over the smallest things.

Just goes to show what kind of people they really are.

Worship celebrities instead of God.

@AbbeyRhode celebritards and sleazy politicians

@AbbeyRhode A lot of idol worshippers in this country, and keeping up with the Jones’s too.
PatKirby · M

Stole my thunder, this is a pet peave of mine. Celebrities, and now many DC politicians, care not one iota about their 'peasants' except when they become has beens.

Which culture does one pick when they’re from a multicultural family?
joe438 · 61-69, M
@Jenny1234 Some cultural traditions are fun and it makes sense to adopt those. The ones that aren't fun, maybe for those areas of your life you adopt from the other cultures. Everything has a balance so you treat the cultural exposure as an opportunity to learn new things and find what works well for you.
Jenny1234 · 51-55, F
@joe438 I get that.
Slade · 56-60, M

I assume you are being autobiographical. Which mix are you?
Jenny1234 · 51-55, F
Okay here’s the dumbest thing. Once your husband dies, you have to wear black or dark gray clothing for the rest of your life and pretend to be in mourning and never ever think about having another boyfriend or husband because God forbid that you forget about your husband or even think about another man

@joe438 female friends but they ordinarily should be sisters or cousins. Still have to sport those black long sleeved knee length dresses though
Slade · 56-60, M

I've never heard of that. Totally fucked up
joe438 · 61-69, M
@Jenny1234 You do have to respect culture even though it can feel old and stale at some point. It feels like everything in American culture has completely changed in just a few years- maybe Portugal will change too.

One of the dumbest considerations are a cash based reparation to people who have or will experience slavery which would be funded by people who were never involved or will be to slavery
@specman perhaps not a majority, but a significant part did.
@specman [quote]no they didn’t benefit from slavery.[/quote]
Really? So they weren't here at any time through the 1970s?

6-8 ounces (170-227ml) of plastic Bottled water. Then throws the bottle on the ground half finished. Not even making it in the trash much less recycled it. Note they must pay 5 cents for each bottle no matter what.

Yearly blackface parades. Thankfully the pushback is growing and more places come up with alternatives every year, but they are still celebrated in many villages.

" Culture " sounds like it could lead to .... frictions.

Humans tend to be selfish, yet we want others to help us.

Too many dumb things to put down all at once. Drugs, poverty, abuse, are some of them.

Country Music?
Privatized everything.
Some try to "own” a dehumanizing epithet that is still being used as a racist insult. From my perspective, it’s self-defeating.

My mother is half Swedish, she's addicted to pickled herring, she can clear entire buildings with her paint peelers
