19 Things People Just Can’t Stand (But Don’t Know Why)

Everybody has likes and dislikes, but some people actively hate something without a fair enough answer why. An online survey recently asked, “What’s something that’s hated for no reason?”. Here are the top 19 responses.

Actors because of a character they played

“ I read that the woman who played Bryan Cranston’s wife on Breaking Bad still gets hate mail.”

“The girl that tried to get Jim to cheat on Pam with her in The Office gets hate too. Her pet died, and she got a bunch of messages saying good, and she deserves it.”

“Dude has donated millions to charity and done phenomenal things for the world, but because he has spiked blond hair and is a meme, people hate on him.”

“He’s the reason I became interested in cooking. He makes it look fun, not like a chore. And how can you hate a guy who just wants to cook great meals for all of his friends?”

Black cats

“They are so sweet and funny. But psychos go out of their way to hurt them, or some people think they are ‘bad luck,’ so they’re less likely to be adopted.”

“In Japan, China, and other Asian cultures, black cats are considered good luck and symbolize long life and prosperity. I think it’s mostly Western countries that have this idea that black cats are bad luck.”

Liking things meant for people way younger than you

“My 17-year-old brother likes Thomas the Tank Engine and has a huge layout with buildings, trees, storylines, the whole thing. My dad and his girlfriend refuse to buy it for him and actively ridicule him for it.”

“I’m this way with Lego, and I’m almost 30. I guess you could argue that Lego is also geared towards adults now, but for me, the joy is in the creativity, fantasy, and nostalgia of the lines meant for kids in the 90s and 2000s.”

Liking things that are ‘too old’ for you

“Also, liking things that are apparently ‘for old people.’ I’m 38, and since I was a kid, I absolutely idolized my grandma and wanted to be just like her. In the winter, I wear a bed jacket that was hers at my desk. It’s cute and my favorite color, and vintage style patterned and warm. I very much enjoy OLD shows and have been called a grandma many times.”

People with ginger hair

“So this is a really weird one. Where I come from, if you are a redhead, it is assumed that you are really smart. I was really shocked when I moved to the UK and found that there was so much hate for them.”

“The stereotyping of ginger hair has been a thing for at least thousands of years. They said Judas had red hair because his mother slept with the devil.”

Guys liking ‘feminine’ things

“My five-year son likes purple. He has a purple winter jacket that is a girl’s one, but he rocks it, and no one would look twice at him for it. My mother asked him what he wanted for his birthday, and he said a purple bike. She told him that he doesn’t because purple is a girl’s color.”

“I have brothers, and they all used to watch Sailor Moon with me religiously when we were kids. My dad made fun of them, but then he got sucked in too. No one ever cared when I watched Dragon Ball Z. Double standards suck.”

The word ‘moist’

“In a play at school, a girl who played Wendy was being all stupid about not being comfortable with the word moist. So in the actual production in front of a real audience, she delivered this line: “Mmm! This cake is so rich and damp!” I cringe whenever I remember it.”

“I swear I never heard anyone talk about that until it was a joke on How I Met Your Mother. Now everyone apparently hates it.”

Nickelback

“My husband (jokingly) gets so angry because Nickelback is the only thing our baby will fall asleep to when he’s being fussy in the car.”

“It’s become a trend to hate Nickelback rather than actually hate Nickelback.”

Cargo shorts

“When I was leaving basic training, I was genuinely disappointed when I put my normal jeans back on and didn’t have the handy pocket halfway down my leg to just drop my phone into or the chest pockets for my wallet.”

“And it’s not like you have to wear the classic giant pockets and thick material ones. There are a hundred different styles at any decent outdoor store.”

Following current ‘basic’ fashion

“Basically, anything that is trendy. Back in 2016, it was those tall riding boots, jeans, chunky cardigans, messy top buns, and oversized sunglasses. Think girl getting pumpkin spice latte.”

“There is a double standard, however, in that men almost never get called basic, even though there definitely is an identical phenomenon in men.”

Anything lots of women like

“Literally anything lots of women like. Hating on it has a certain misogynistic flavor.”

“Yep. Just think about cocktails. Anything fruity or sweet that women tend to drink is called ‘girly’ disparagingly.”

Beans in chili

“People are either super against or all for.”

“’Texas Chili’ is made without beans. And they get really mad about it when others add beans.”

Anything teenage girls like

“It wasn’t until I was older that I realized how many things are looked down on solely because they’re liked primarily by teenage girls. Even The Beatles were heavily criticized and seen as a joke until their fan base expanded beyond teenage girls. Then they magically became critically-acclaimed legends.”

“I got picked on for LOVING Britney Spears when I was a kid, and it showed me that I needed to hide my interests if they weren’t cool or marketed to boys.”

Cosplay

“It’s just makeup? and acting? Literally, everyone does it on Halloween, but once you put a name to it, it’s ‘weird’? For real, it’s just an art form. Sure, some people can be cringy, but the actual art itself isn’t.”

“When I was in the army, there was a guy in my unit that would go all out and cosplay women from his favorite animes. Most people didn’t care, but there were several that thought he was a freak or gay or whatever. His cosplays were very detailed and amazing. He went on to marry a stunning woman and shut everybody up.”

Teachers

“I had the sweetest teacher who was made the victim of a nasty Instagram account making fun of her body (she was a little overweight). Students would take photos of her without her knowledge and zoom in on areas and post to Instagram.”

“Ya, I remember in high school, my friends would complain all the time that a teacher yelled at them or something, and I always asked them what they did. It always turned out that they did something.”

People having fun or being ‘cringy’

“I work in the social sciences, and people that make fun of others like this are usually trying to protect their own identity. The idea is that if I want to be in the ‘in-group,’ I need to make sure I push down anything that stands out around me that is part of the ‘out-group’ to solidify my position that I am indeed in the right place.”

“Do not kill the part of you that is cringe. Kill the part of you that cringes.”

Pineapple on pizza

“I don’t like it either, but why so much hate?”

“I’m a firm believer that everyone should be able to enjoy their pizza with or without pineapples as they prefer, but the funniest reasoning I’ve heard given for the pineapple hate is ‘FRUIT HAS NO PLACE IN PIZZA!’ Because hey friend, I think we need to talk about our good pal, the tomato.”

Prebuilt gaming PCs

“I’ll pay a few hundred extra bucks to not have to deal with the hassle of finding all the parts I need, waiting for them all to arrive, assembling them, having something not work, troubleshooting for six hours to figure out what’s not working, returning that part and waiting for the replacement, assembling with that part, realizing another part wasn’t working right…”

“Yeah, I guess a lot of people (myself included) have a sort of passion for all that stuff, even the constant fiddling and adjusting and not knowing what’s wrong and having to figure it out for yourself. But, like, not everybody likes that.”
