Watching cringey stuff is painful. Our eyes are running away from it, our gut is repulsed, maybe even our muscles are involuntarily contracting. But we can't help it. Teens congratulating their classmates because they are black, a woman licking a toilet bowl in hopes of starting the 'coronavirus challenge'... For some reason, we need to see how these things play out. Even if our body is refusing to allow it.

The subreddit r/Cringetopia is a gold mine for this type of content. With 1.1 million active members constantly sharing some of the cringiest things they can find on the Internet, it's just getting bigger and bigger, too. Continue scrolling and check out what they have collected so far!

Frieder Paulus, a psychologist at the Lübeck University in Germany, told Quartz that embarrassment is social: it tells us when we have violated a social norm and makes us feel bad for doing so. But it's not clear why exactly we have the capacity to cringe or as scientists call it, feel vicarious embarrassment.

We feel others' embarrassment because we are empathetic—we imagine how someone else thinks and feels because it determines how we treat others and cooperate with one another. Feeling second-hand embarrassment might be just a byproduct of a more important trait, much like how the belly button is a symbol of the umbilical cord.

Well. Sex toys practically guarantee to give you an orgasm while a lot of men care nothing for a woman's pleasure and still think that 'sex'=penetration. So... yes, it makes sense that some men are preferred less than dildos.

No unneccesary conversations. A dildo doesn't call you a whore, slut or bitch or ask you to wash clothes, cook, and it won't cheat on you or give you STD after cheating. Get it?

Omg, does this guy want a list? Dildos don't get you pregnant and then leave. They don't criticize your cooking, decorating style, weight, clothes, makeup, or politics. They don't mansplain. They'll give you an orgasm every time. They don't beg for a**l. I could go on and on.

Dildos don't waste time writing a check their body can't cash. They are pretty much good to go at any given moment and don't have any sudden cravings that require anything assembled from food and dishes to wash

Also for most of us women, we don't actually see the dildo as a "penis/fake penis". For us its just a sex toy. Nothing more. It may be phallic shaped, but its still not a penis.

A friend was at our local sex shop, Goldie's, buying a dildo. The only color they had in her "size" was black. A Black man was in line behind her and said he'd provide the real thing to her for free. She replied that she was a lesbian and no thanks, lol.

Teaching "abstinence-only" simply doesn't work. Teach the kids about safe and consensual sex and about birth control. If you really care about fewer children getting pregnant and requesting abortions, this is the only reasonable way to go. (Nothing wrong in abstinence as an idea, though.)
