5 Things You’re Taught Not to Stare At But Do Anyway

Published by at 7:20 am under Editorial

As children we tend to stare at just about anything that seems new to us.  So when we’re told not to stare it definitely sucks but it provides a foundation for us to become “normal” people who understand rights and wrongs of society.

But despite what we learn, there are some things we refuse to pay attention to even into adulthood.   And when it come to things we stare at there are five particular things I think we’re taught not to look at but probably still do to this day….

Homeless People

I’ll never forget the first time I saw someone sleeping on the street in New York City.   I was walking with my family during a night out.  I couldn’t have been more than 5.   I had no idea what the hell I was looking at.  All I know is that my mom explained that it wasn’t polite to stare at the person.  At that time I didn’t even know it was a person.  One rule of thumb in society is that you don’t stare at homeless people.   But we all do it.

Animals Having Sex

As an adult I will never follow this rule…..ever.  It’s just hilarious to watch because 9 times out of 10 it’s going to be something doggy style and hilarious.  But every time at the zoo without fail I’ll see a sexual encounter and a mother is covering up her kid’s face.  On come on mom!  It’s just nature isn’t it?


This one is tricky because technically us men are supposed to stare at cleavage.  We just have to learn to do it in a way where it doesn’t look like we’re staring.   Most of us are taught to do quick glances but frankly it’s getting to the point where I just don’t give a shit anymore.   It’s just too good.

The Sun

Most adults don’t stare at the sun.  But many kids do.  And they do it for as long as they can.   Come to think of it, do you realize how dumb you are as a kid?  I mean who eats glue?  Seriously.  And why the hell subject your eyes to that crap?

Animals taking a Dump

I’m not going to lie.  I would say watching a horse poop is definitely one of my favorite past times.  I think it’s because I so rarely see it.  A true bonus is when you see a mounted cop and the horse is pooing.   Simply glorious.

    you missed one. You should never stare at a stranger who’s crying on the bus or subway. but just like with cleavage, you steal some looks, wondering if the crying will lead to mass shootout or something just as interesting
