No matter how much we love our Filipino roots, we can't deny that there are certain practices that are undoubtedly cringe-worthy. It happens within the community, and most of the time, within the family. 

Netizens are well aware of the so-called "toxic Pinoy culture" and they showed their frustration through their tweets. In fact, it has become a trending topic every now and then. And even though it was not directly stated, they really hope that change would come and we will finally get rid of these practices:

The "hindi ka marunong rumespeto" card

Smart-shaming

The unhealthy go-with the flow attitude

Judging people based on what they are a fan of

Displaced priorities

Failing to follow simple instructions

Voting the unwise

And this sums it all up, basically.

So you see, there are still lots of work to do if we want to see changes in the society. But with the realization of these toxic practices and bringing them into conversation, we'd like to take it as a good sign that we'd be more mindful of our words and actions. If we want change, maybe it is now time to open our heads. Maybe by then, we will live in a less toxic community.
