What part of American culture do you not vibe with? I'll answer first... I live in the south, and I hate the sportsman culture here. People are f***ing obsessed with guns,hunting,and fishing. As for myself, I do not own guns and have no desire to kill animals for sport. Also, I think fishing is boring as hell. People here are also very extroverted and anti-intellectual. I'm introverted and intellectual, so I do not fit in here at all. What aspects of American culture do you dislike? What aspects of the culture make you a misfit?

1. Obsession with sports
2. Pressure to be happy and cheerful all the time... if you're unhappy, it's your own damned fault because you have an attitude problem
3. Stigma against dating younger women (but of course it's perfectly OK for a woman to date a man 10+ years younger)
4. Woman worship/man demonization
5. Almost impossible to make friends because cliques are so tight
6. Sexual immorality
7. Prejudice against guys who are quiet, serious, and/or introverted.
8. Constant preaching of "tolerance" which really just means tolerance of sin.
9. Insincere, hypocritical "Christians"
That pretty much sums up my feelings as well. I would add, not nearly enough single women to date. Also, too many fat chicks and women with tattoos and body piercings.
"When I think about the idea of getting involved with an American woman, I don't know if I should laugh .............. or vomit!"
"Trying to meet women in America is like trying to decipher Egyptian hieroglyphics."
Hey, Hero and Jamesbond I would like to add #11.) A stupid and crazy obsession with the issue of race/stereotypes which is promoted/exploited by the mainstream media and American society (Not everyone is a racist but unfortunately a huge segment of the U.S. population is).
People who act nice and friendly, but they really couldn't care less whether you live or die.
They myth of "Freedom." America is the least free society on earth.
The government tends to refrain from passing many laws that say "You must do so and so." Instead, the thousands of municipal, state, and federal laws on the books state the many things you CANNOT do (Jaywalking, not paying taxes, not carrying cash into and out of the country without completing Customs declarations, not registering for the draft, etc.
All of these things that you cannot officially do give the veneer of freedom when it is actually authoritarian.
By some estimates, the average American unknowingly commits 2 felony crimes each day due to the laws on the books. These laws essentially give the government the power to arrest anyone at anytime if they need to do so.
Is that freedom?
The bullshit surrounding and in everything - It seems like nothing is substance; its all full of bullshit. That's what I hate about America most. I hate the stupid egos I have to dance around wherever I'm at, people that don't even deserve a breath of fresh air much less than they deserve to be heard or even respected.
I hate the racism obsession, sex obsession, gender obsession.
I hate how Americans always run their mouths off the most and have sensitive frail egos that always need brandishing. I'm really realizing this being out of America for a while. I grew numb to it while I was there.
An emphasis on the epitomization of being a "fool" and everything relating to being A FOOL is glorified.
feminism & gender role reversal.
demonization of everything male
If you could take the Bible and flip it, America is what you'd have - it's the exact inverse of the 'best' virtues and morals. I think it's on purpose. The best competition even, comes quietly and from steady focus and training...from quietness. Any fool can brandish himself and get knocked out - yet we glorify these idiots and hold that to the 'ideal'.
America is sin Inc.
Misery and happiness are only states of mind.
And I would like to add at least a couple more:
12. Live to work society
13. Being forced to drive everywhere
14. Political correctness
15. No rich culture, as evidenced in the people's mannerisms and boxy-looking architecture (schools, office buildings, suburban homes and apartment complexes, strip malls, etc.)
16. ...which brings me to my next point - life is seen as going from box to box (after all, people shop in"big box" stores)
17. Unintellectual media that only focuses on tragedies, celebrity news, and stuff that isn't meaningful to our lives
18. The over-hyped "American Dream" (which is actually an oxymoron unless you were in the top 5 percent)
1. Superiority complex: Thinking we are superior to everyone else (everyone=other countries).
2. Feminazis: Promotion the delusion that women are independent, strong, superior and fully enabled woman
3. Promotion of Gay and lesbians
4. Promotion of transgenders
5. Extreme regulation: rules for everything! We are not any longer the country of the free
6. Because of #6, a society or wormy tattle tales
7. Pathetically weak men who have cowered and kissed ass to women in exchange for occasional subpar sex with ugly overweight mates
8. So much focus on risk aversion that we regulate ourselves to death. New age parents are completely paranoid about their kids.
And my dad was paranoid about me when I was in college, especially after my mom passed away. Not once but TWICE he threatened to call campus police to check up on me. And they even had one of my good female friends and her husband check up on me.
This was one of the reasons my life only got worse when I moved back home after college. I couldn't just up and leave Los Alamos without telling my dad first. In other words, I was free to leave his house but had to "get his approval" before leaving longer term, especially whenever I went outside of Los Alamos.
Last but not least I was even a second class in my own family also because my dad is a mangina. And he is always on my sister's side when it comes to "resolving" problems.
It would be a lot easier to list what we do jive with...
Oh God, where do I begin?
America's corporate work life is the most soul sucking, dehumanizing labyrinth of hell to have ever existed. I put this one first because most Americans (and myself at the time) live here. They put you in cubical farms where you are tied down to your desk 8 hours a day. This is to make the office-space "more efficient", and subconsciously telling any who would work here, just how much of a number, cog, or unit they are to the masters they work for. Any talking to your co-workers get you dirty looks from the manager for why your not at your desk. Hence, you develop a underground network where you only converse via email. This is to give you the illusion that your working. The computer is rigged so you are tracked and monitored every second of every day. Failure to be at work at 8:00am gets you written up as being "late". Forget the fact that bad weather or traffic jams has any inpact on your ETA time to getting to work. A report will be filed for your... "disobedience". They will also log your "errors" for which you keep making and never can seem to reach 100% of supreme excellence. This will impact your quarter raise. Perhaps now, you will only get 20 cent raise if your lucky. Ignore that inflation just swallowed up half your paycheck this year. Got too many raises or worked too long at the company? No worries, there is a pay-cap. Yes, we can't pay you TOO much now can we? Were going to kill all incentives for you to work harder, but demand it at every turn.
Here, you will see political correctness shine the most. Women rule the roost and men's masculinity is torn from them. You can see the look into men's eyes that they are a shell of their former selves. They have to play "the nice-guy" role and pander to women 24/7 or get fired under the guise of "bad behaviour". Office Politics are just a pain in a mans ass. Sniveling, back-biting, unneccessary meetings, dress code regulations, and emails from your superiors telling you what you "failed to do properly" today. Its enough to drive anyone insane. You get fake "hello" smiles and greetings in the mornings, a sign that its going to be a bad day today.
The problem with this system is it demands absolute perfection while treating you like the most absolute piece of garbage to have ever existed and who has luckily enough found grace and protection under its mighty umbrella. It demands A class individuals while building a system for C class slaves. Nothing like going to those group meetings and hearing how the company made 8 billion in profit last year, but your paycheck hasn't changed to reflect that.
Company talk of "family" is the most insulting one of all. They talk as if your one of them, but in reality, your just a checkbox away from getting fired. They constantly leave you on the edge of your seat, wondering if your going to be the next "savings" in their bank accounts. The managers themselves are all friends and you are their "underlings" who must obey at all times, or else your going to get "written up". This is the reward for those who fail to achieve true freedom.. freedom from working from corporate America.
All of America's intellect is outsourced, because I know for a fact America doesn't breed geniuses anymore. Football, Football, Football. If your not a football fan or any type of sports fan, get ready to receive a unwelcome barrage of negative opinions that your a nerd! If you don't love and worship football like you pretend to do with Jesus, then your not a true American Patriot! Do you like or love anything different? Well unless you imbued with a XX chromosome, your going to hear it from the guys.
Men here are OBSESSED with sports and p***y. Your either watching the game and eating chicken wings or your improving your odds at getting laid tonight. Gaming lately has become somewhat less stigmatized now days. Perhaps, because its the only bastion left of male freedom, but that too is soon eroding. You'll spend your nights off at bars and clubs, spending what little savings you have on booze and free drinks for women. You'll spend your Saturday nights courting a female you wouldn't even present to your mom and who probably has a STD just so you can tell other men how fake a Alpha you are because a woman opened her legs tonight for you.
On the women's side of things, they are the reason a forum like this exists. I could go into very long details explaining why American women are the bane of society, but I think just reading around this forum enough will merit anyone searching for why Social Life sucks.
I am a Christian, but I hate American Christianity. It is everything Christ would NOT want his Church to be. These people are suppose to represent the loving kindness of a God who reaches out his hands from the heavens to bless broken and hurting people. Instead, they turned it into a playground for adult children and lust for money from pulpit pimping preachers who think God's only desire in life is to make you wealthy. Yes, a SPIRITUAL GOD, is only concerned with your MATERIAL NEEDS.
They hold the real truth in their hands, but it is far from their hearts and minds. They give fake hello's, fake friendships, fake love, and fake words. If your NOT happy, then something is wrong with YOU. You must always put on a face that everything is great in your life. If your honest, that just gives the christian ladies something to gossip about now! I mean after-all, God blessed this nation with the greatest wealth in the world just so it is to prove we are right and doing it the right way!
Megachurches that bank-roll their audiences. Instead of focusing on Jesus, its about church-growth and community. What good is a community that is going to hell? They are like the pharisee's, they paint a beautiful white picture on the outside, but inside, they are full of dead mens bones. There is no talk of sin or change, only judgement from the real Christians. When the government signs a law, futher pushing christianity out of society, instead of standing up for their beliefs, they just whine about it.
Americans are a bunch of fatties. If its unhealthy, its American. Don't like the freedom to destroy yourself with food? Well then, your not a REAL AMERICAN! From burgers to steaks and deepfried fries. Food worship is what we excel at. Oh yes, we know its a "problem". TV ads filled with 1,000 different products on how to get trimmed and healthy. But you will NEVER EVER EVER touch a apple, because we know, that apples are more expensive than hamburgers. The only time Americans are caught touching apples, is when they are on their iPhones.
Obesity is at a all time high in America, along with a 200+ billion dollar health-care business that needs to keep us healthy! Instead of getting us healthy though, these companies create fake cures to sell to keep the money flowing. They have no interest in making anyone healthy, only to profit off their misery. So what if a few thousand mom or pops dies in the process? Were making money! That's all that matters!
But don't worry, if the stress of being unhealthy is too much, we have fast food to cure your depression on every corner of every street. Everywhere you go, there will be temptation. These work great in combination with your job, because you never get to leave.
Want the American Dream? Then sign right up! Get your education in your gender-study degree's and then wonder why you don't have a skill set and 30,000 dollars in debt. Success has now-days been equated with going to school. Didn't go to school? Well you will NEVER be a success. Nevermind that 66% of all successful enterprenuers didn't go to college. Load your future down with tons of loans! They are government backed and guess what? You can't even get rid of them by filing bankruptcy! This is one debt you will NEVER get out of until its fully paid!
Don't worry, everyone and your mama will tell you the only way to be a successful wage slave is to go to college! The debt is just there to show you what your future is going to look like! Only 1.3 TRILLION in student loan debt is just a side-note! Lets find you the nearest college and sell you a 40,000 per year loan, with interest! Here, sign your future away. Yes, in print and signature. We know best for your success! Just look at us!
Feminist teachers and liberal propaganda pushers. They rarely teach real knowledge and only teach their liberal garbage. Yes, you enslaved yourself to the government for this. Enjoy! Oh and if are a man, well watch out for the false rape accusations coming from the ladies. They really hate men.
Welcome to the land of the fee. 1984 George Orwell is truely spot on. Everything evil and corrupt is labeled under freedom. The biggest crime syndicate to exist in perhaps the history of the world. The big USA kills you with a smile on its face. Don't like backward deals or corrupt politicians? Don't worry, you still have power! Just vote them out!
If it makes you unhealthy, the government will make programs for you. If it makes you healthy, the government will ban it. It will tax you, it will incarcerate you, it will send its fake phony injustice judges on you, and it will demand everything from you for breaking a law they created, just so they could do this to you. You are so far from free that freedom shouldn't even be in your vocabulary.
They own your media and use it to push government planned agenda's to get the population to swing and vote in its favor. They prefer "saftey and security" over freedoms, when all they are really doing, is making the world less safe.
They have pushed the American people so far up to 19 TRILLION in debt, that we the people never asked for, virtually unchecked. They waste money on everything they can to get the dollar so over-bloated in debt, that its effectively worthless. Hence talks of the next dollar crash.
If people asked me would I rather have Ebola or the American Government? I would vote for Ebola, atleast I have a chance.
The American people are so far up in debt, that if the entire world was to pay our bills, they couldn't pay. These debts are promises to our owners that the future generation will pay. Yes, look at the millennium generation. That is the I.O.U. generation that will pay all this debt. The most spoiled, undisciplined generation to ever exist in our country, is going to pay you back trillions of dollars of debt.
If your not getting into debt, your not a REAL America. Everyone has credit cards and everyone just loves owning a bank money. I heard the CC debt was 30k per average to every American. Thankfully I owe zero.
There is not much to love about America anymore. The only thing I loved most about it was the food, even though it was unhealthy.
I don't care for any of it, but it doesn't bother me anymore. Hey, I have my own individual interests. I am not bothered by the American culture. I simply do not participate in it. After that, there is not much more consideration needed. Luckily I haven't had a breast talk to me about football in over eight years. No reason to get involved in it.
As for other people, let them have their interests and you can have yours. That's all. You don't have to like what they're doing. Just take the good parts that you like about life and try to forget about those bad things that don't affect you. So I hate American football. I simply don't watch it. I also will not talk to anyone about it. It's as simple as that. This isn't something that needs to be blown out of proportion to the degree that I'd rather live in Russia.
Some people have the issue that they don't like what other people are doing with their lives. It's their lives though.
A good man is above pettiness. He is better than that.
