A Series Of Unpopular Opinions (5)

A series of unpopular opinions. Share a thought, no matter how crazy or critique the ones other people have chosen 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.

<< Held every Friday >>

I shared five unpopular opinions in the last post. Thank you to those that participated.

 

Unpopular opinion #1 by Ramone

“I have a sort of unpopular opinion depending if you are spiritual or not.
I always hated the concept that we as humans came here with some purpose but just forgot. That is like a man running into a burning house to save a person, but as soon as he enters he forgets why he entered. then the door is shut and locked. so he and the person are stuck in the burning house and both are confused and suffering”

 

Response(s):

Raw Earth Ink  “I tend to agree with Ramone and I don’t subscribe to that belief. For me, it makes no sense at all. It doesn’t take much to look around and the world and the Cosmos to see there is a Designer. It’s not random. I believe deep down we all KNOW why we are here (in a way) but sometimes we just don’t want to admit it”

Unpopular opinion #2Porn is a good thing” by u/Amir-Iran

 

Response(s):

Ramone “I stumbled across porn at too early of a age (before 11). It’s been part of my life since. I don’t think it is about needing sex. I think it is about relief and habit. There are so many men and women who look at porn who are married or dating. To me, porn is like the news: it’s pure entertainment meant to get you off for a short period before moving on. In that sense, porn can be anything that stimulates. Nudity isn’t needed”

Unpopular opinion #3 “Microwaved leftover pizza is 1000x better than fresh pizza”

by u/salted_rock

 

Response(s):

Raw Earth Ink  “I don’t think I have ever had microwave pizza, as I haven’t ever had a microwave. Whenever I had moved in somewhere there is one, I unplug it and put it in the closet. Therefore… well, I just can’t speak to whether it’s tasty or not. I will agree that COLD pizza the following day is good!” 😁

Unpopular opinion #5 “It shouldn’t be seen as disrespectful to wear a hat indoors”

by u/Highlight_Smooth

 

Response(s):

Raw Earth Ink “I tend to agree with this one as well. I have never felt it was disrespectful to wear a hat. Of any kind. Especially in winter when, well at least where I live, it’s cold. Even inside. I’m not sure how or why a hat would be seen as disrespectful. For a man OR a woman. Because I’ve noticed that. It seems okay for women to leave adornment on but not a man?? This makes no sense to me. I’m off to see if I can find out where this thought came from…”

 

Thanks to Raw Earth Ink and Ramone for participating and sharing their thoughts. Without you, this series would not be possible.

As for today’s unpopular opinion(s). We have three, check them out:

(Note: These opinions are in no way reflective of my personal views or biases; just ones I think will spark interesting dialogue in the comment section):

 

Unpopular opinion #1 Big dicks are overrated by u/paradise1A

Big dicks are overrated, they hurt in most positions and are way too over sexualized. I have been with both guys who are packing and average sized and more times than not, average sized guys are better since they have to compensate for not have a big dick, where a bigger dick automatically thinks he’s good in bed cause the size of his penis. Over all I think average dicks are better than big dicks.

 

Unpopular opinion #2 Small kids should never be allowed to have pets by u/Hickmastafunk

I’ve seen countless stories about smaller animals being abused and not taken care of, and as a person who owns a few guinea pigs, it’s quite disturbing. These animals have feelings too.

People of all ages can be abusive to these animals, I know. But Children seem to do this the most. This usually is NOT their fault, as they either do not understand how to take care of them properly. I believe that a child should have to take some type of test or prove to the person selling these animals that they can take care of them.

It seems absurd, I know. But these are still animals. They can still feel emotion.

I don’t think that this should apply to all animals, however. As some “pets” can be used as food for others. A great example would be buying mice and feeding them to snakes. I only believe the larger of the small pets group should fall under what I believe.

I also don’t know if certain laws are put into place for this. I am an American, after all. I don’t even know if there are laws in other states that have this.

 

Unpopular opinion #3 “Be yourself” is terrible advice by u/perspicaciousguy

Whenever someone asks for advice about how they should act or what direction to go in life a common response is to just tell them to “be yourself” and things will fall into place.

This is extremely unhelpful to the person asking for advice. The reason they are asking is probably because they don’t know themselves. You can choose to do anything you want with life, simply “being yourself” doesn’t mean jack squat.

Much better advice in my opinion is to “be who you want to be”. Take a look at the people in your life, role models, people who you admire. Take the qualities from those people that you like and make them your qualities, ditch the ones you don’t like.

No one in the world is truly “themself”. At the end of the day were all just playing a big game of monkey see monkey do. But we do have the power to choose who we want to be – I think telling people to be themselves just makes them complacent in becoming the people they surround themselves with rather than actually becoming the person they would truly want to be.
