Or Instagram. Or how people take selfies…especially if they use those stupid filters. Nobody is interested in people’s selfies… I want to read articles and read about people’s thoughts, stories, etc. Maybe see pictures of interesting things or your cute kids or pets. Share your cooking tips/recipes, life hacks…but not your stupid selfies.

Euthanasia of humans should be legal. I think this for multiple reasons.

Firstly, we consider it inhumane to keep an animal alive if it will live a life of only pain. Yet it is considered inhumane to euthanize a human if they agree to it and will not recover from physical trauma.

Secondly, many people want to kill themselves even with help, medicine, and therapy. If they cannot kill themselves painlessly and successfully, then they could risk permanently damaging their body. Of course, first all other resources should be exhausted to help the individual.

Finally, with genetic testing, more people will know that they have a mental disorder which slowly destroys the brain, and they should be able to decide if they don't want to lose themselves.

I work in a vet's office and have wondered this myself. I actually wrote a paper related to this topic in college. Not the euthanasia part but why do humans see themselves as superior to every other species on earth. We named ourselves "wise man" for goodness sakes! We think so highly of ourselves lol. I became a vegetarian after researching for that paper.

My unpopular opinion is how people come on to this site, answer about an unpopular opinion and then get bashed for it. time and again, not even JUST in this post. People are so rude and angry. It boggles my mind. I don't have to agree with you but I won't call you names and think you're a POS just because you disagree with me. That's what's wrong with this world. If we would just talk about things maybe we could see each other's point of view even if you don't agree in the end it's still not a reason to be nasty and rude. I can't believe how many keyboard warriors there are on here, and if you get angry at this, than it's you and you validated my point.

You don't have to love your family.

Yes, it's considered ideal, but sometimes toxic people are toxic and just because you happened to be born in a specific group of people, it doesn't mean that you're obliged to love them if they keep harming you.

All religion should be abolished. It was invented as a way to explain the stars in the sky or why natural phenomenon like earthquakes, lightning and volcanoes happened. But it was quickly discovered that it was also a good tool to control the masses, so they expanded it to evolve into a tool for obtaining power and wealth.

The Vatican is a supremely wealthy nation unto itself for an organization who claims to take vows to live a life of poverty. They are the most successful criminal empire in human history, responsible for large scale murder, rape, corruption, theft and so much more in a bid to increase their power and authority.

Religion has been responsible for more murder and crimes against humanity than anything else in human history. It's still being used as an excuse to be terrible to people today. From middle eastern jihads and the Taliban, to China putting roughly 1.8 million Muslims in 're-education camps' to hypocritical Baptists judging others and leaving fake scripture $20 tips for servers. And don't forget the torturous conversion camps evangelicals make anyone who has the misfortune of being gay in their religion go to.

And let's not forget Scientology or the Mormons, both of which are equally absurd and cruel and agenda driven. The LDS is well documented for their cruelty to women. I'm sure many have seen any of the many shows detailing the plight of their members and attempts to escape the church and abuse they've suffered. There's a whole underground system in place to rescue these poor people.

The Amish will forever turn their backs on their own family, friends and neighbors if anyone dares to step out of line in their church. Religion is no longer about worship and wonder. It's about power, control, wealth and cruelty.

Abolish religion and you take away humanity's excuse and motivation to be terrible. Imagine how much more peaceful the world would be without it.

While I greatly admire and appreciate all of my sisters who fought so valiantly for “equal rights” for women in eras past, I also feel that the dawning of feminism has brought on a whole lot more work and pressure for women in modern times. Like, oh cool, you mean we are expected/required to work outside the home AND do the majority of the housework, the social planning, most or much of the child rearing, homework help, and be the point person for school and extra-curricular activities?

Big difference between the two. We already have equality (everyone realizing and respecting equal value and right of every human being). We don’t need to be giving everyone the same thing regardless of merit…nobody “deserves” or is entitled to anything. You have to work for things and follow the rules. Plain and simple. A safety net for the vulnerable people who really can’t (the disabled or emergencies) makes sense-but everyone else is capable and is responsible for meeting their own needs. That is fair.

The way the western media industry handles diversity and inclusion is pretty bad.
(Note: Before a rabid outrage happens, I mean the execution and display, not the touched topics themself)

The "woke" content became boring and reppels the average customer, companies run right into their doom (saved by tax money bailouts) and they created a very hostile environment (mostly online).

And while they claim to be "progressive" they hand out leftover scraps to any oppressed group in form of remakes or re-writes instead of creating original content.

The death penalty doesn't need to be canceled in fact it needs to be more enforced upon people with actual solid evidence against them in cases such as murder and rape / child abuse. Explain to me why someone can be recorded murdering or tempting murder, raping a child, raping or molesting a woman and such, but they don't deserve to have a death penalty. We let criminals such as this do multiple offenses, we live in fear of people like them and yet we can't wipe the garbage from our planet? I don't understand

A few arguments against it: Justice systems and the evidence they produce can be imperfect; risky to make a 'final' decision from this! The death penalty costs taxpayers more in the US, since the state exhausts more legal resources into the deliberation. It has a negative moral connotation for society, in that it teaches us to seek revenge and that people are beyond redemption. Even if some people ARE beyond redemption, it doesn't behoove us to favor destructive options. We as a society are more spiteful and belligerent if 'wipe them from our planet' is always a solution.

Men should not have as much control over women and their bodies (esp. when it comes to abortion) and shouldn't feel entitled to sleep with a woman simply because he likes her. When men say that "remember, men were the ones to give you your rights!" tell them that men should never have been in a position to take those rights away. Most also need to learn that they can't just be a Nice Guy™️ and expect women to be tripping over themselves to get laid by him.

On the flip side, women should understand that men can experience abuse, harassment, be manipulated, and get raped. It's not a "female-exclusive" thing.

People,in general need to learn and remember that there is, in fact, still racism in America, and that just because YOU personally aren't experiencing it, someone else is. They also need to learn that we shouldn't judge people based on outward appearances, sexuality, race, or gender.

TL;DR: People need to realize that things that people think happen exclusively to one gender or one race affects all of us collectively as a common species.

The over sexualization of our culture leads to more objectification, sexual assault, rape, unwanted pregnancies and abortions, more kids in the foster care system, broken families, and divorce.

My popular opinion is that not everyone should have a drivers license. Teaching someone how to drive a car is easy. You can even teach a monkey how to operate a car. But no one in his right mind would allow a monkey to drive unsupervised on the open road, because it has no notion of the dangers and responsibility it takes to operate a 2000 kg or 3000kg killing machine. Sadly no one is tested if they have the mental capacity and attitude to drive a car responsibly and safely. In my country people pass an exam and get their license. Only when they prove to be a dangerous driver, they get an evaluation if they are even fit to drive. Why can't we integrate an evaluation in the exam?
I've been a driver instructor and I had people in my car that I wouldn't even trust with a bicycle. They got their license, they are driving unsupervised, all of them have caused major accidents, most of them have been arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

I 100% agree with you, especially since there are a lot of people out there who are really, really into father's rights. Getting some pregnant, especially against their will, does not make you a father or capable of being one. Nobody should be forced to have a child that they don't want, let alone one that is a product of rape and forced birth, then forced to have contact with a rapist for the rest of their lives.

My unpopular opinion is that the obsession with STEM education in K-12 schools is a slow moving disaster. Kids can build robots in 2nd grade, but show up to high school unable to write 5 sentences about a robot. We blow technology funding on buying everyone an expensive touch screen laptop, whether they need it, have the means to use it, or use it as anything other than a smartphone esile.
I'm not suggesting we refuse to adapt to increased technology use, but STEM, and STEAM (adding an "a" for arts) results in the near decimation of history, government, and civics education.
Now we have kids who can develop an app to share the poems they write about robots. Unfortunately, they can't recognize media bias, the constitution, or the march toward fascism that's eroding their rights to do anything.

Less of an opinion, more of a life choice. I'm lesbian, and if I adopt a child and end up with a wife I'm going to get them to call me Dad. Makes them feel less left out on Fathers' day, and helps them differentiate between my wife and I. A lot of people think this is not good, idk why.

Don’t see why it’s a problem, Dad is a sacred name between you and your child, and if anyone has a problem with that, then screw them.

If they can't so no to someone they trust, how they are they going to say no to someone with bad intentions? Don't teach your kids to be victims - autonomy and agency are the best gifts to give a child.

The Game of Thrones ending was fine.

From the very start, the show was renowned for unexpected twists, callous killings of beloved characters, and generally avoiding predictable tropes to tell a brutally unique story. I feel like the ending did the very same thing, but then the fans complained because they didn't get a predictable happy ending? Were they expecting that the person saying 'I'm gonna rule the kingdom' for the past 7 seasons was going to rule the kingdom in season 8? Were they expecting the beautiful man and beautiful woman to fall in love and live happily ever after?

*SPOILER* Moreover, there's an element of historical precedent to Daenerys' shocking character climax. She was orphaned from the start and the family she found were the Dothraki, who were a textbook equivalent of the Mongols. This was where she learned her values and made her kin. From there, she took on the role of Genghis Khan: travel, overrun and rule from afar. Do not stop to rule any one city, but instead install a leader there to turn it into one of your own and your allies before moving on to the next. The Mongols were never the type to settle down, and they damn sure weren't the type to recognize any other ruler over them. So Daenerys tool her Mongol values throughout life and they played out the way a Mongol would in the end; if you can't rule it, destroy it - people included.

I agree!!! Except I hated one thing, that Bran ended up in that position. Never really cared for him, I wish it was Tyrion in the end. But other than that, yeah, totally fine ending, I don't get all the rage.

Calculus is literally nothing other than how to describe the world around you. Sadly, people believe it can't be taught to most high-school students because the way they learned calculus was purposely designed to weed out all but a certain type of thinker. Insanely, American schools spend years prepping kids to understand calculus, but then never teach them calculus. Trigonometry's only purpose is to understand how calculus describes curves. On the other hand, people major in art without studying how to describe curves? Journalists try to understand economics without understanding derivatives? That's insane!

I have some

1. Family Guy ruined western adult animation. Adult animation got worse and worse ever since Family Guy came out.

2. Western comics are not as creative as graphic novels and manga anymore. All comics I've read are mostly about superheroes I mostly don't care about anymore.

3. Fanfics can be great. Not much to say for this one.

4. Coffee is bitter no matter how much sugar I put in it AND it makes me tired.

5. Cats vs dogs debate is just a snowclone of boys vs girls. To the mainstream, cats are seen as destructive, timid, aloof and just pets for lonely people; whilst dogs are seen as brave, kind, helpful and loyal.

6. Modern American video games all look the same.

7. Snake vs tiger, fox vs chicken and bunny vs bird are better than cat vs dog.

8. Mainstream American humor is getting more dated.

9. Talkshow hosts are rude to their guests.

On #3; yes, fan fiction can be excellent. It can also be incredibly terrible. If the writer gets the character right it's a plus. Poor grammar etc can be a real turn off.

Any other ending of Seinfeld would be an injustice. Seriously, I used to get upset being in a room with Seinfeld on because everyone on the show was so terrible. Since seeing that ending, I now can love every episode of Seinfeld. These are bad people, not people to emulate. That episode when George did the opposite of what he thought he would normally do? The tragedy is that he stopped.

Sure, I do! I think this "woke"-movement makes more harm, than good stuff, in the end. Because, let's just see the race/religion-thing. If the mainstream communication doesn't allow to say openly, if an aggressor belongs to which race or religion, even if it's "unofficially" known, that will just raise more negative feelings towards those groups. With racists one can't do very much... they are existing from the time cro magnoni met neanderthals. But the waste amount of the population is neutral to this thing. Basically. And unless, with your "woke"-movement, you are starting to protect criminals of given races or religion, will remain so. Because in everyday life no one gives a s**t about your race or religion, if you are not pushing it, and are a decent human being.
But with this shitty "woke" moment you are generating conflicts between people, just because you want to make money from generating artificial conflicts between races or religions...as, for example the BLM-movement showed us, whose founders made money from donations, spend buying houses in white-neighborhood in US. Even they don't trust their "n***a-bros"!

I eat the crust first on pizza so that the last bites are of toppings instead of crust. Don't get me wrong, I like the crust, I just like the rest of the pizza more.

I also twist apart oreos and eat the frosting first, but must when I'm alone. In public, I eat them whole. (As in, not taken apart. Depending on the size, I may take bites out of them)

I don't peel string cheese

I slice whole oranges into their sections and then suck the juice out of each section. I don't like the white stuff or the stringy bits. If it's orange slices that come in a can, I'll eat them whole bc no white stuff.

I don't like ham because it always seems to be either too fatty or too stringy and tough

I eat the outside of the banana first (the white part) and then the inner yellow stuff that's sweeter and less chalky. I peel them upside-down by pinching off the little spiky bit on the bottom and peeling it.

I have soooo many food-related ones lol

Please stop cultural appropriation. It is very much a thing and in fact very prominent today. While I do believe that culture should be celebrated amongst everyone, I think different cultures have their different customs, clothing, hairstyles, etc for them and them only, and it’s important to recognize and respect that. For example: eating Mexican food or Chinese food or African food isn’t cultural appropriation, BUT dressing up like an “Indian” (Native American/Indigenous peoples), wearing box braids, cornrows, or trying to look like another race and not showing respect to it IS CULTURAL APPROPRIATION. I think all cultures are good and should be cherished amongst all, but some things aren’t for everybody.

"The Handmaid's Tale," a novel by Margaret Atwood, has won awards and been made into graphic novels and television series. It's been called strong, moving, an important book for women's rights. A lot of people like it.

I think it sucks. It's superficiale, immature, and ridiculous. Maybe it's because I read George Orwell's "1984" when I was in high school. Orwell creates a "real" world and gives good reasons for how it came about. Atwood doesn't give reasons. She explains nothing.

I don't remember exactly what happens in a particular scene, whether Offred had to lie underneath Fred's wife while he had sex with her, Offred, or whether she had to lie underneath the wife while she, Offred, gave birth, and I don't think it's worth the trouble to re-read, but the scene just cracked me up. It reminded me of cabbage patch dolls.

And don't be thinking I'm not a feminist, because I am.

Jesus Christ was a wealthy man who grew up in Tiberius across the Sea of Galilee from the Golan Heights. His father Joseph was a wealthy Carpenter, one of the highest paid professions in the Roman world.
They lived four hours by horse from Damascus, where Jesus learned healing as a doctor. He was also a Rabbi, meaning He was married.
Jesus had paid servants, possibly slaves, and commonly visited the Temple in Jerusalem, not something a poor man could ever do.
Jesus was exiled, not crucified. His bones can be found at a monastery in northern Spain. He lived about 80 years and died.

I think having a pet, unless it's a rescue, is selfish. Pets have no control over their lives, their routine, what they are given to eat or allowed to do. They are completely dependent on their owners' decisions and values; and get punished/trained if not complying. I don't think it's ethical to breed living creatures just for the purpose of entertaining humans/being their friends.

Pets have a little bit of control. (We're not in complete control, either.) Sometimes they can decide what they eat or are allowed to do. I've never punished a pet. I've had arguments with them, but I've never punished them. I don't think it's ethnical to have pets just to amuse us. But there's nothing like earning the love and trust of someone of another species.

People who got stupid degrees shouldn't have their student loans forgiven. Tax payer money isn't an infinite resource, and there are much more important things to use it on, such as infrastructure, criminal justice, humanitarian aid for developing countries, transitioning to renewable energy, etc.
