" Hush..... don't talk about it in public,
It is something embarrassing,
It is something offensive,
It is a social custom to avoid,
Mental illness, sex education, periods, drugs, abortion, sexual assault, and so on,
These are some taboo topics..
Taboo are the topics which are usually not talked about in society. There is a great necessity for the growth of our society.
Why don't we talk about certain things or perform certain actions? What prevents us from using bad language in public? What stops us, for example, from discussing masturbation? In every society, there is a concept known as "taboo." A taboo is something looked down upon by society because of social customs. Incest and indecent exposure are both examples of taboos that hold a legal statute. However, many taboos are not illegal. Many actions and words are only taboo because of custom. There are no particular laws that classify things as "taboo." In certain places in the world it is illegal to swear, but oftentimes this is not enforced. Many of the concepts we view as taboo are rarely discussed because it makes us uncomfortable to confront them. However, those behaviors that are classified as taboo usually are a major concern for our society. Taboo is a result of generations of civilizations who reject behaviors, including language behaviors, which they deem unacceptable. Various cultures have different taboos, and these rules help people to successfully assimilate into a certain society.
Let's talk about each topic and their need to be openly talked about like Mental illness: Just like physical illnesses, we need to deal with our mind's health too and be open about it. Depression, anxiety, and panic attacks are very common these days so people need to be vocal about the same and stop judging people with mental illness.
Some awkward talks on subjects like Sex education; To avoid crimes like rape, one should educate people about sex and to keep things open for conversation. Some general topics like, Periods; Every girl has it every single month, so I don't think it is something to be ashamed of or something that you shouldn't talk about.
In topics like Drugs,
Awareness and banning of drugs is a necessity cause the youth is destroying themselves into these bad practices.
In case of abortion,
If parents are not ready to bring a child to this world then it is completely there choice and we are no one to pass a judgement on that.
These were some of the taboo topics, let us know if you liked them in comment section below.
Be happy and be safe ☺️
