Reddit-related Why does everyone write ages the wrong way on Reddit?

52.0k Upvotes

I always see posts like “My (29M) girlfriend (30F) left me for the milkman.”

It should be written “My girlfriend (30F) left me (29M) for the milkman.”

Reddit-related Why are people on Reddit so sexual?

397 Upvotes

I could literally make a post that says “just ate some garlic bread” and I’d get a message from someone saying “haha.. nice. That’s so hot please tell me you fucked that garlic bread.”

Like why? The first time I got a message it was random talk, asking my name, then it became, pretty quickly, sexual comments and questions that were totally inappropriate.

It always starts with acting interested in the topic of the post, but as soon as you reply it turns weird. At first it feels good to know someone wants to talk or let me vent but it’s never been the case. Starts with asking where I’m from, what I look like, how tall I am or if I’m petite or curvy. Then they start asking sexual shit.

I had posted before about sexual abuse and got a message from saying saying they got off to the idea of a child being… yeah. Like wtf? I reported the person but idk if anything came of it. I thought it would be a one time thing, but it keeps happening.

When I don’t reply they always try to act innocent, as if they didn’t mean it THAT way at all. They change the subject back to the topic of the post. But as soon as I start answering again it becomes sexual once more. It’s like predatory behavior… manipulative. Like wtf is up with reddit? Y’all are fucking weird.

Reddit-related Are mobile users really the minority on Reddit?

458 Upvotes

I always see posts with some sort of disclaimer along the lines of “sorry for formatting, I’m on mobile” but I’ve genuinely never met someone that uses Reddit outside of on their mobile device. Obviously there’s nothing wrong with using Reddit through some other means, I’ve just never met someone that does it. Is there really a large enough population of Reddit users that use it outside of mobile that we mobile users have to keep apologizing for our potential formatting mistakes?

Reddit-related Why is Reddit so left leaning?

827 Upvotes

Edit: The people on here who called me a right leaning, America hating conservative for even asking this question just proves my point. Reddit IS very left leaning and this sub proves it. I appreciate people who gave a thoughtful, logical answer without having to resort to ad-hominem and straw man attacks against conservatives.

Reddit-related Why does everyone on Reddit seem like the same person?

19.5k Upvotes

This might have been asked before, but literally every comment with the exception of a few sound the same and have a similar tone. They all sound funny, self depricating but confident. Is it because Reddit attracts a certain crowd? Let alone everyone seems like they know each other in the comment section when they are complete strangers.

Reddit-related Why do people on Reddit generalise Europe like it's one country?

1.2k Upvotes

I always read comments on Reddit where people like to generalise Europe as we are all one nation.

For example, I often hear people that obviously aren't even from Europe say: "Oh in Europe they have x or do x." And I'm thinking, hmmm this is true for some countries but definitely not all. And often, this type of comments are the most upvoted!

I get mildly annoyed about it, especially because Europe is full of different countries & nations, with their own unique cultures and languages.

147 Upvotes

If r/TooAfraidToAsk is for asking controversial questions, why do so many commenters shame or belittle the OP? The OP asked the question because they recognize that they need to hear new perspectives to have a healthy view of the issue at hand, so why the hostile responses?

Reddit-related Do you ever feel like picking a fight with rude commenters because you’re just so fucking done?

113 Upvotes

Sometimes I post because I’m desperate and need advice on something or need to talk to someone or whatever the fuck and there’s always someone that come with arrogance ready to ruin your already bad day.

I had made a post about having just feeling anxious about a new dog we got and just figure out how to cope with my emotions and I was told that my emotional turmoils have nothing to do with the dog and I was a bad owner. I want to drag this person through the mud and make them eat shit and I know it’s an exaggeration but I’m so fucking tired.

I don’t have anyone to fucking talk to and coming here or other subs to vent or get advice eus just begging a lot of assholes to insult you for no reason. It’s just tiring…especially when you’re so separate for advice and instead are met with rude people It’s 1 in the morning and I’m very tired and frustrated and angry and just sick of people

67 Upvotes

I made a post yesterday and it got around 3000 upvotes. In that post I stated that COVID is almost over. Apparently, in the USA there are still a lot of cases, which I didn't know at the time. People got mad at me for saying that COVID almost gone. I told them that I'm not from the US and that COVID has become almost non-existent here in Belgium. Then they all downvoted me. Why?

Reddit-related Do people in the r/FuckCars movement not understand rural life?

430 Upvotes

I keep seeing this sub pop up in my feed despite not being subscribed to it, and it makes me feel like the whole movement is a bunch of city dweelers with great access to public transportation.

Which I get it, they want to see improvements to public transport. But is it feasible for every road in rural counties to have a bus stop? Do they really expect people to walk miles to get to one? What if I want to buy a bunch of groceries, am I supposed to carry them on a bus? What if I want to use my Truck to buy some lumber to build something? Its hard to take 4x8 sheets of plywood on a bus I think.

It just seems like this movement is geared towards people in populated areas who live in highrises who only need to ride a bus a few blocks to get to stores and work. I just cant see how not having a car would work for people who live on dirt roads in cow country.

I've seen multiple posts on the front page throughout time that show videos or images or people getting assaulted and the comments cheering it on. From what the ToS states, encouraging or glorifying violence is against them so why are these posts still allowed?

Why are majority of people on Reddit men? Most of the general subs which have demographic surveys always show that majority of their userbase is men. In the polls sub, the female to male is 1:4 or 1:5.

27 Upvotes

Stupid example:

OP: "Do you think Santa should wear another color, or is red good?"

Comments: "He should pay taxes, First of all"

"It's none of your Business what color Santa is wearing"

"Are you saying he should wear blue or white just because He lives somewhere cold?!"

You get the idea

Reddit-related Why is r/conspiracy allowed to organize harassment of the families of victims simply because they refuse to believe it’s true?

36 Upvotes

I don’t understand why that subreddit is allowed unlimited freedom by the Reddit admins. Their reaction to the Uvalde shooting is flat out disgusting and for all intents and purposes, it appears that Reddit supports their platform being used this way.

My question is why? We already know what will happen. 4chan and many redditors will begin harassing victims because they believe it is a false flag. It’s already happening. This is supposed to be against site rules, yet it is never addressed. When will Reddit be taken to task for how it is used to spread the hatred that causes these attacks.
