When it comes to most topics that people get offended or upset by, I am numb to them. They don't bother me. Unless a person is talking about something that relates to an experience that I have had, I don't care about it. I don't care who was elected president, I don't care what a certain person did or said, and I don't care about what goes on in this world.
I think my lack of care is a way of protecting myself from subjects that are depressing or worth getting angry over. Instead of getting sad or angry enough to jump off a fucking bridge, I just tune the world and my emotions out. I never take anything heart, and I am truly confused when someone apologizes to me a thousand times for knocking my guitar over or bumping into me. I don't let things in life get to me, because, if I did, I would rather cease to exist.
So, is it a bad thing to not care? Am I ignorant?

It's a bad thing to not care, yes. But it's not a bad thing to be laid back and that take all of those to things to bed with you each night. So I'd try and tell you to find some middle ground. Because your a human being at the end of the day and if you truly don't care about any of the things that have a significant impact on your and others existence then what's the point? We have to care, surely, it's part of our nature. Part of what defines are species. If we stop caring then I think I'd rather cease to exist.1

I am quite similar, honestly. I think it's a safe way of dealing with hardships in life. I JUST had this conversation with my Popsy last night. I love my cynism. It is pretty rare for me to get worked up over anything. It honestly has to be pretty big or effect my future for it to rattle me.
The only way I can say it's bad is if you forget how to feel empathy. When you cannot feel for/relate to another person, you might start to disregard the value of life (their lives in particular).
Tl dr: As long as you don't become a serial killer or something like that, you should be fine.1
