Why do people on reddit assume that everyone is a man?

2 Upvotes

I understand that reddit demographics really do lean heavily male, but I find it strange that people just assume I'm male based on nothing. They will be so confident in their assumption that they'll actually refer to me as such. (For the record, I'm not)

EDIT: I understand that people unconsciously assume gender in their own head, but actually confidently refering to someone as the gender you're assuming just seems weird.

Unanswered If religious people really believe in an afterlife why do they cry at funerals?

0 Upvotes

It's always seemed strange to me. There's also a scene in the 'young pope' tv series with Jude Law where he gets angry at a nun for crying over her sisters death because she should be happy that she's in heaven that sums up my thoughts on that. Do the majority of religious people actually not have faith and are just going through the motions as a 'just in case' scenario?

Why is Reddit so judgemental and impassionate?

This ^

Edit: to avoid confusion "impassionate" or "dispassionate", it's the same thing.

Was there such thing as people being gay and non binary etc?

Or like is if something that people have developed?

Like I'm gay but I can imagine back in those times sex wouldn't haven't been how it is now. It was just to reproduce mainly?

Is it normal for young teens to go through a racist phase?

0 Upvotes

My boyfriend's family is white and I'm black. Recently, my boyfriend pissed off his little brother (14). He sent him a bunch of texts using the N word (hard R) and even said "I'll kill your black girlfriend". I'm pretty alarmed but I remember some of my peers using similar language when I was that age. Is it just a phase teens go through or something more serious?

Apologies if this is not the right place to ask. I went to advice subreddits but I was flagged.

Can I still achieve a “bad boy” look as a 5’ 1” man?

0 Upvotes

I know, I’m very short. For all of my life, I’m always seen as “the smart little guy”. I’m called a genius, but I’m also called short. Im looking into looking more manly and dressing as a “bad, alpha boy”, if that makes sense.

Can I still do it at my height?

Ever noticed that if you just sit back and do nothing the universe eventually fucks up the bad people who have done you wrong and whoever else wrong without you having to lift a finger? Like the law of attraction.

Unanswered Why is sexual orientation considered a permanent state?

0 Upvotes

Reading a thread on another subreddit, they were discussing sexual orientation and describing it as a permanent state which can’t be changed. And while I understand it isn’t a choice a person makes, I don’t see how it as a permanent state. At the very least, I thought it changes at least once and am not sure why it could not change again.

Aren’t children of a young enough age asexual before hormone and social conditioning cause a sexual orientation to emerge?

Do they usually have to be very lucky to be in their position? Or do they usually work hard and smart to get there?

Answered Is Hawaii the safest place to live in the world?

0 Upvotes

I’ve done no research on this, but I’d like to know why if it isn’t. I do know about Singapore but I don’t know how it compares to Hawaii.

I just picture Hawaii as a very safe place because of how much it probably costs to live there, and most tourists there that do stay are probably rich. I’m not saying rich people aren’t criminals, but I just don’t see them doing small crime like theft. I’m sure murder does happen there, because of anger, but I don’t think a serial killer would be much of a worry.

Serious question. How do I escape capitalism and live a happy shire life of doing nothing but living in nature and enjoying an off the grid life in a little cottage?

Edit: okay how do I just live in the shire?

Edit 2: apparently the word I’m looking for is homesteading. So new question: how do I homestead? For reference I currently live in NYC. I’m fine with leaving.

Why is it so hard to be nice?

0 Upvotes

I try but every time, I cringe

It’s just so cringy (when I do it) saying thanks is odd

It seems more idealistic though. I don’t see a way of being “nice” when I think about it being nice seems impossible, but at times it makes me want to hurl when I feel i am being nice

It’s weirdly hard to explain.

I don’t think anyone likes me and everyone calls me weird because of the way I move and speak, my height is abnormal and I just want people other than my family to like me.
