For an article that comes with the word “controversial” right in the title, the trolls are probably already getting their keyboards ready. But in this list we are not trying to pick a fight. In fact, none of the things mentioned in this list come from ourselves or our staff (in spite of the list’s subjective nature). All of the ideas and concepts you are about to be exposed to come from forums and message boards, primarily via Reddit. For this reason there may be things on this list that we ourselves don’t even fully understand or agree with, but having said that, for each item listed, there is a significant portion of society with strong feelings regarding that topic. So, how did we choose what to include? The first criteria is that the concept, idea, or practice must be embraced by society in some manner (typically via Hollywood, fashion, TV shows, or social media). The second is that it has to be controversial. It’s best to just jump in and see what made the list in order to get a better understanding. Either way, we tried to keep things as objectively third party as possible but still inject a bit of humor. These are 25 controversial things that society subconsciously embraces or considers cool.

Similar to some rock stars (coming up in our list), some rappers have managed to put forward an apparently convincing argument that selling drugs and busting caps is cool. Not surprisingly, this has caused some pushback.
Putting children into beauty pageants has definitely caused its share of controversy.
Breeding dogs has led to some very negative health effects for the dogs, which unsurprisingly has caused a bit of a stir.
The World Cup
It’s typically held in places like Rio de Janeiro where most of the population is poor and suffering, but as some people point out, it’s mostly wealthier classes that reap the benefit.
Death without due process
In most movies the antagonist just gets killed off, no questions asked. Yea, we know, it’s just Hollywood, but since when has Hollywood not been controversial?
