Top Ten Things That Should be Banned

The Top Ten

Cigarettes

Cigarettes should be banned worldwide and both indoor & outdoor places and in homes

That would be worse because then people would start smuggling them.

This kills people. And gets them addicted. And negatively affects their lives. And if you're a parent, smoking around in the house, you could harm your kids.
It also smells awful.

People are getting cancer smoking cigarettes and bad things. It should be banned

No access to healthcare and not stopping global warming should be #1... This affects us all! Urgently!

Oh, thank you all for putting this in the No. 1 spot. I honestly don't understand why the legality of these things isn't being contested more these days! Ignorance to their negative effects couldn't be lower and their so expensive to keep buying, anyways! Also, you'd think that people would be smart enough to properly teach their children to stay away from them and yet the teenagers of today still smoke.

Porn

I think that pornography has a negative impact on relationships and the brain. A lot of it suggests that sex needs to be a certain way, while being completely unrealistic and sometimes even misogynistic and sexist, homophobic, and promotes dehumanization and objectification and violence. It's also been proven that porn is addictive, due to how sex affects the brain. So in my opinion porn is often problematic and can be seen as an issue in the world.

Porn should NOT be banned.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not someone who is interested with the concept to begin with, let alone someone who watches it. However, the problem lies in popularity and income. The Porn industry is rather very large, thanks, in part, to sites like PornHub and Brazzers (Who surprisingly have some standards seeing as they don't display violent and disturbing variations). While banning Porn does seem like a good idea, long-term consequences tend to say otherwise. You can't really eliminate porn by banning it. The industry will just move on to the Dark Web for distribution and viewing. In addition, a lot of people become sexually driven during the latter stages of adolescence and much of adulthood. Furthermore, if Porn does get banned, there'll be a big uproar from people and the moment they'll find out about the Dark Web, they'll try to reach there, potentially exposing themselves to more darker types of Porn.

What I mean to say is that banning Porn ...more

Oh my god, that is a good reasoning to your comment. It sounds literally accurate.

Only time will tell how bad this is messing us all up.

I would rather have legal prostitution than legal porn... Regulated and safe.

Porn relates to us a primates, as animals and as beings with no consciousness or self-control. It attacks morality and suggests sex is a primal need. As civilization progresses human beings must take control over sex and sexuality and become higher beings. Porn takes us back to a time when we were animals. Civilization is what we aim for and porn has no place in it.

Racism

This and any type of discrimination towards others based on gender, sexuality, religion, race, etc., should always be at the top of this list

I hate it so much I get bullied everyday cause of it and it is so bad! I don't know why Trump says it's okay.

Skin color is not something to be fighting over. Just why focus on that?

Racism is just wrong. Why should you be judged by your skin color, when what's really important is how you act as a person?

Bullying

Kids are committing suicide because bullying. Kids are shooting up their schools because of bullying. Why? Why must all these children die, because of OUR laziness, and OUR inability to stop bullying? It should be a crime. End of story.

I've been bullied before as well as lots of other people and I don't understand why people do it. If you pick on someone who's different than you, does that make you better than them, does it make you feel better about yourself knowing that you've done harm to someone who did nothing to you or anybody really? NO, it makes you less of a person! People commit suicide because of these people, and what really angers me is that the school system doesn't care one bit. They completely ignore it and if they even acknowledge it, they don't even try to help the victim. God forbid the day that the victim fights back and dares to hurt the bully. Because that looks bad on the school! This proves that schools never care about mental health.

Get Ready to VOTE...Do Whatever you Can...Beware Russia Will Hack our Elections...We need a FREE China to Spread Real Democracy!

If it does get labeled as a "crime" then all of the world would be in jail for saying each 1 mean comment. I agree with smoking and porn but bullying? It is horrible and people do die but maybe it's the fault of some people for taking the act of "bullying" and changing it into a whole new meaning and distorting it's meaning so that if one mean comment is said it can be turned into some excuse for people to go telling adults that someone is "bullying" them. So be mindful of what bullying is and if it happens repeatedly you should then do something.

Drugs

Drugs damage not just people, but their families and friends and relationships. They ruin lives, and they are still used carelessly? Drugs are not "cool", they are deadly. I wish the government did more to keep drugs out of America.

Close the Borders so Drugs don't Come Flowing in!... Build a Wall with Guard Towers!... Get Serious!...

Mexico is now decriminalizing all drugs and I feel that we need to do that in the USA... The money used to incarcerate people can be used for drug education and treatment.. Drug dealers will be out of business now. We can buy anything anywhere or not. Empty Jails.

All Legal, Americans should have access to good Healthcare, without this, America means Nothing, at all! And keeping a clean, healthy planet to live on! All else is 2nd!

Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. ...read more.

How did I know this was going to be here?

I'll say this here and be done with it. I don't hate him for his music or whatever. I couldn't care less for his well-being because he decided to drive drunk.

My mother was hit by a drunk driver and will have chronic pain for the rest of her life.

If you're careless or brainless enough to put others in danger like that you have sworn off your right to ever being trustworthy ever again.

That is why I dislike him.

Hell No, He Should Not Be Banned. He May Be Annoying, But Banning Him Is Not The Right Thing. ISLAMIPHOBIA SHOULD BE NUMBER 6.

This site and its Justin Bieber jokes...you know, it was funny back in 2010, but good God, isn't he kind of gone now? And how is a teenage pop star worse than things that can ACTUALLY be harmful and SHOULD get banned? Like drugs, alcohol, discrimination, etc. Do you realize how stupid this is now?

Do you realize how stupid it is now that you're still ranting about the joke years ago?

This joke is getting old fast

War

I not know if ET caused 9/11.. My guess, its Stupid Republicans sticking their noses in lands they got no business in! Next thing, BOOM! We pissed off people! But, you never learn, some of you still support MORONS!

Is there a War on USA born people and legals? Why? are we paying for healthcare for all illegal aliens?... The Government claims its running out of money for Social Security...Maybe? If we didn't Reward for people to cross our Borders illegally?...that would help?...what next? Free collage and daycare for illegals? Do Democrats want to lose the election?... Put Americans First!...especially Veterans!

STOP! Wars! OCCUPY 3!.. Use credit unions, NOT Banks! GROW Socialist Party! See movie Sicko, support the Progressives! STOP Global Warming! Take the profit out of healthcare! Stop all discrimination!

It was OBAMA who fixed the economy not Trump. OBAMA. After inepto Bush screwed it up and got us into Dumb Wars. It Was OBAMA who fixed the country. And the Democrats.

Internet pop-ups

Internet pop ups are THE single most irritating thing I have ever come across! Just ban them now and be done with it!

I've gotten rid of them now, but before, I couldn't do anything on the computer I use without two ads popping up every three minutes. It's hard to play Super Smash Flash 2 like that. One time, a pop-up ad even replaced the tab I was on.

Finally after a long time of waiting I can look up the chain chomp from Mario bros... (a lot of ads start filling up the page) Oh come on!

There is No Justice in the World like Free Speech on the internet...For All the World to see...a few pop ups is not that bad. For this Immense Equality.

Censorship

I agree, partially. Forced censorship should be banned as it violates the first amendment, but self-censorship shouldn't, as it gives a choice if something should be said or not.

FREEDOM means NO Censorship.FREE...Voice of All to All...Democracy...All Are Heard...USA...for example...

Unless it incites violence, promotes misinformation, or is slanderous. - narbo

Oh look, liberal fascists are trying to censor opinions that don't agree with their own. Book burning? Removing a statue of Jefferson Davis? You don't grow as a society by removing "offensive" stuff from history, you use them to learn a lesson about how dangerous it is to repeat the past.

As someone who leans a little bit towards the left side of the political spectrum, I couldn't agree more. - Atham

This is why you should use a VPN it let's you get onto sites that are restricted because an oversensitive SJW said so.

Sexism

Gender is not important to be fighting over. It's not a problem if someone is a woman or a man, treat them equally

Men are not perfect, but women aren't either. Both genders are equal and neither deserve to be discriminated against.

This is sort of illegal.

How though. I mean its wrong but how do u make an opinion of gender superiority a crime it will never stop

The Contenders

Animal cruelty

If you hurt animals, I hope you endure the worst torture to ever exist and I hate you.

I hate everyone who hurts animals the same thing should happen to them.

Please help Humane Society.org teach others to be kind to animals! ALL is Learned!... Teach!

Wait! Republicans are animals!

Republicans

I like to look at the political spectrum as a list form one to ten. 1 being right wing/conservative and 10 being left wing/liberal. I would say 60% of people my age (perhaps more) are in the liberal zone. The overwhelming majority in the 10 range are elderly people who do not understand the US or much about current events. These far fighters have, instead, a very outdated view of the world. Many rightist politicians are homophobic and act as though gay marriage is some sort of sin against god. For they're information, the bible does not say a thing about gay marriage. Only more recently have homophobic religious leaders have falsely interpreted it to be so. They are constantly urging Americans to get involved in costly international affairs. I'm not talking about Europe or Asia, I'm talking about hopeless war zones like Sudan and Libya. The United States has no diplomatic ties with Libya nor does the average American care what is going on over there. Same with Sudan. The only country ...more

I like this cat, he knows his stuff, cats this informed are a pleasure to listen too, if only we had this quality of person running things, we would all win. Some.

Get rid of them!... They silly!

All Republicans are just old people getting in the way of progress, science, technology, medicine, the sooner they are gone, the better!

This the reason so many HATE us.

Often going down the mountain is much harder than going up the mountain.. Think about this before you vote Republican... The ass you save.. May be your own!

I'm not going to get into what I believe in personally. But both being Republican or Democrat should be illegal. Just believe what you want to believe in, simple as that.

Abuse on women

I feel sorry for our women if we elect Republicans,I truly do.

They all beautiful and important

I think that women should not be abused in the world woman have the right to do anything they wont

Ban the entire state of Texas! Women have NO RIGHTS THERE! Move to Sunny California!

Alcoholic drinks

Alcohol does more harm than good. Alcohol causes a person to lose their ability to think and act with intelligence. Some may argue that alcohol has some benefits but beware, the consequences outweigh the benefits. If you still don't agree then maybe we should look at the number of innocent people who die as a result of drunk drivers. We should also look at how much crime is related to alcohol. Take my word, alcoholic drinks are not proving to be as beneficial to society as one might think.

Honestly guys there are people who drink responsibly, but then there are others who drink irresponsibly. This ends up in car accidents, domestic violence etc. If alcohol is banned it is better for society as a whole. Yeah sure you might not want to give up your beer, but it would be worth it if it benefits society. There would be a decrease in crimes and we won't have to worry about drunk drivers crashing into a car filled with little children.

Remember how Prohibition worked out? They repealed it for a good reason - the average American was breaking the law and organized crime was through the roof - much worse than people just getting drunk and making drunken decisions.

I think the prohibition was ill conceived, but rather than entirely abandoning it, I would have just made efforts to keep it legal but not so that it's encouraged either. - marmalade_skies

A lot of us can actually handle drinking even when drunk the few trouble makers don't know how to handle their alcohol are the idiots that end up in jail or worse yes its sad that people die from accidents but that's part of life

Rape

This is already banned in most countries, and this should be higher on the list, at least in the top 5. How is this lower than internet pop ups?

I don't know I don't think it need to be banned but someone doesn't want to do it the better listen

Rape is already illegal in MOST countries.

How is this not higher? Its very serious!

Anti abortion laws

Abortion should definitely be legalized. I'm glad I live in an enlightened country.

There is NO scientific or medical proof supporting that we are even close to realizing when a fetus becomes a human. Absolutely NO PROOF. Scream at me all you want. It does not exist.

And as Ronald Reagan once said (and I'm paraphrasing), "... Since we don't know, let us air on the side of life".

He also said (and this one is a direct quote) that, "I've noticed that everybody that is for abortion has already been born".

It puzzles me, constantly, that the liberal-minded side of the argument isn't the one fighting for pro-life. Every other liberal-minded argument is FOR life, not AGAINST it. I just don't understand the morality behind these beliefs.

Did you know? That if you use birth control! We would not have so many hungry. Lonely. Abandoned.. Children in the world.. BUT your damm religions get in the way of simplicity like this! And you Butthole republicans preach your crap! To uneducated people! And this sad! Cycle will continue! I hope you morons never win!

Most supporters of these laws are Southern redneck hypocrites.

They have no problem shooting people for no reason, but it's horrible if it's baby.

Abortion

I hate abortion and I am a Democrat! Please don't murder a helpless baby! Women are saying, "Oh you guys are sexist and not allowing us to have reproductive rights! " You know what? I don't give a damn about your "reproductive rights" if they include the right to murder a fetus. All you pro-choice people take life for granted and don't care about a baby. But everyone only has one life, including a fetus. You people who have had an abortion as selfish. Selfish because you would rather have it easy for yourself and kill a child rather than let the child live. JUST GIVE BIRTH TO IT AND GIVE IT UP FOR ADOPTION! SOMEONE WILL ADOPT IT!

Dictators don't care about your view if its something they think is a good idea enjoy trying to control how others live besides getting re pregnant shouldn't be to hard when ready to start a family make a new child or 3 otherwise keep getting them abortions creating a bigger business in the market

I think it's wrong to kill a child before evening giving it a chance in life, it's your fault you went and had sex, didn't use protection, got drunk, or weren't careful enough with your condom. I think it's wrong and is considered murder and anyone that has one should be charged with murder as they have just chosen to kill a unborn child. I'm only twelve, but I still thing this is incredibly wrong, even if the woman isn't ready to be a mother figure yet.

Abortion should not be a right, and yes, I'm a WOMAN and I'm saying this. I'm a devout Christian who took a class on what abortion is and why it's a sin, a believe me, its brutal. A fetus is not apart of you. It's just in you. This should absolutely be banned. Its like one day a babies just floating around, and a second later it gets it's head chopped off! Yes that is how they do it!

Could you dunderheads educate yourselves.
Within one week of conception, the fertilised egg, known as a blastocyst will make its way to the uterus. Within days the cells will arrange themselves into two masses: the outer coat will become the placenta, while the inner cell mass becomes the foetus. All being well, the developing embryo will settle into the folds of the womb lining.
Its not murder. How about you watch a 90s children's cartoon called How Your Body Works Life - The Body Sentinels on Youtube.
Get your brain working.

Lying

The Republican party is the watered down version of the KKK and Nazi parties.. Look at Public Television and you learn about this. This true.

President Trump and the FOX news channel are just Lies Exaggerations but his supporters are so Damn Stupid that they don't even know that they are Damn Stupid All I agree with Crooked Trump is that we need Real Borders. But we be need Healthcare and Equality too. I'm Staying A Democrat...Republicans are A Scam. Vote 2020!

You, must be talking about the FOX news channel.. What a load of spin! And Bull! You must not have a GED to enjoy this crud!

Lying can actually be good at times. For example, when your friend is guilty of something small (like stealing a cookie) and you take the blame because that friend saved your back when you were being bullied. That isn't bad. Right?

YouTube ads

Youtube Rewind 2018 in a nutshell. Also, those annoying Grammaly ads.

Yeah I agree with you sometimes theirs dirty ads it's disgusting and the annoying ones are even worse

When I was watching a video in school a text advert popped up and it said 'How to grow your own marujjana; CLICK HERE.' It was a little funny but it's really bad that Google can approve an ad like that.

One time I saw an ad that was dirty and it had swearing in it what if my 8 year old brother was watching it?

Big Brother Big Brother is a reality game show franchise created by John de Mol, originally broadcast in the Netherlands and subsequently syndicated internationally.

And I refuse to keep on paying double what I can afford in healthcare costs, just so some people who can not afford it get to have health care. I'm sorry they can't afford it, but I can't afford to pay for them. Obamacare is killing me. My healthcare premiums have doubled. Most doctors can't afford to accept Medicaid anyhow, because the government doesn't give them enough money to properly take care of their patients. And now I can't even see a decent doctor, like going to Mayo Clinic, which Obama care will not let you go to, unless you pay a few thousand every month at least. So, I have to go see some quack downtown. I hope it gets repealed. People could always be treated at a city hospital with no insurance. No one was being turned away. Now EVERYONE is unhappy.

I refuse to stand for colors at my navy base employment until america has universal healthcare for all its citizens! We may? End up in court! But I no longer remain quiet on this! Healthcare should be equal to everyone!

Well,its just a start
The USA is not France! But,us Democrats,in California,starting July 15,2015 we will have at least 3 sick days a year we can use and be paid! If you don't use any,at end of the year you get 24 hours of pay! So,if you,say,go to dentist,you don't have to go to work with a swollen face,you can rest! At least in a blue Democrats state,they at least try to help workers a bit,I pity you in Red Republican states! The well to do there,Vote Republican and the hell with you poor working stiffs! Go work sick! You peaon!

Hillary Clinton will keep and expand on President Obama's new, fresh, young, current progressive agenda, equality!

Anti guns laws

Countries that have banned guns have very little crime unlike the U.S. where mass shootings are rife. Go figure.

You cannot make law abiding citizens safer by taking away their guns. That's been proven over and over again. Everywhere in the world where they have strict gun control the violent crime rate has risen. Everywhere, without exception. And yet people still think they can make the world safer by outlawing guns. The lack of logical thought regarding guns by the left, which usually has intellectual superiority as its hallmark, boggles the mind.

No, Lemon. We need less people relying on police for protection. Cops aren't always right by you, a.44 magnum can be. A gun can't shoot you like a cop with the wrong idea can too. How bout that?

People who think there should be no guns aren't thinking at all. Criminals will get their hands on guns one way or another, just like how they get their hands on drugs. All it will do is disarm the law abiding citizen and make them vulnerable. Let's face it, id feel much much safer with a gun in my house

Why should we make it easier for them to get one? I think the only thing that should be changed are the amount of checks to be sure that you can legally own a gun. What if someone with anger issues got to carry around a concealed weapon? I don't care how many dislikes I get, guns are made for the pure purpose of killing. If you feel safer by keeping a gun in your house, okay I respect that. But carrying around one in public is dangerous and frightening. (not for me but my 8 year old brother was scared we were in a parking lot and he saw someone with a handgun and was really scared that isn't right.) - Katekat123

This is quite literally contradicting an amendment. The second amendment, to be precise. And I don't know which idiot is REALLY going to openly oppose an amendment. And if you will, then expect an uproar.

A police state

You mean white power... White supremacy?... The Gop controlling us all?... Corpirate... Corporate america relly in charge $$$... I pity us if republicans relly take over... We will all be pak mules.

Voltron

this is my friend's favourite channel!
I can't believe it's on this list!

That show ended horribly ngl, Lance deserved way better than allura! I'd say he should've dated slav

Corporate greed

Big corporations are taking money away from smaller businesses and only care about themselves. This is why capitalism should NOT be a thing.

If you republicans leave us with no access to affordable healthcare... Expect many many many lawsuits! And protests!... Access to help has changed our lives! For the better! Thank you MrObama and democrats of 2008!..2012!

WOW! You should see the Fraud at Pride Industries... Many disabled there.. That makes it easy!.. We in court fighting them! Now... If you know workers there.. To be were!.. It's a scam!

Healthcare for profit is SICK!... Wrong!

Power Rangers

This is completely valid. They have no place in our society.
