A Series Of Unpopular Opinions (2)

A series of unpopular opinions. Share a thought, no matter how crazy or critique the ones other people choose to share. The point is to have fun provided we all keep an open mind and respect each others views. Healthy debates are welcome, extended discussions even more so.

 

*******************************************************

I shared five unpopular opinions in my last post, some of them received much appreciated responses. Thank you to those that responded, be sure to check out their blogs (links attached to their names):

Unpopular opinion #1 – We are not happy. We are distracted. The human experience without distractions is fundamentally depressing and full of existential dread unless we tune in to our favorite TV shows or buy a new set of clothes to keep our thoughts occupied.

 

Response(s):

Paula Light “Agree with the happiness one. Our culture in the US frowns upon any expression of unhappiness even if it’s totally logical to be unhappy. If you say you are, people will reply with some trite nonsense about “silver linings” or whatever crap. So, we pretend to be happy no matter what. The TV is on to distract us, yep!”

 

**************************************************

Unpopular opinion #2 – Having a brand tag on your clothing makes you a walking advertisement for that company. Status is what you think you gain from showing the brand logo but you are essentially paying for the ‘privilege’ to market their goods for them wherever you go.

 

Response(s): 

Anne Leueene “I am personally allergic to this thing of a name tag on an article of clothing. I have paid for the darned thing so why should I have to advertise that the bag is made by Michael Kors or the t shirt by Aeropostale???? Annoying!”

As for today’s unpopular opinion(s):

Unpopular opinion #1 When you say “I love you” to your partner you shouldn’t expect them to say it back; especially if it’s the first time. People can be entitled to many things, but someone else’s love is not one of them. 

Unpopular opinion #2 Mushrooms are disgusting. I’ve never found the appeal.

Unpopular opinion #3 It’s stupid how men are somewhat still expected to make the first move. What is this — the 50s?

 

Thoughts? Opinions? Let me know in the comments. I’ll be sure to link the contribution to your blog for all the credit.

Thanks again to Paula Light and Anne Leueene for their continued support.

 You two are superstars ❤
