A Series Of Unpopular Opinions (12)

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 (almost) every Friday >>

For those curious as to why I don’t do this every single Friday, well, sometimes the “unpopular” opinions I find are popular. Which defeats the purpose.

Takes a while to find really unpopular opinions.

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

Unpopular opinion #2 I just want a simple boring life by u/newCoder250

Response(s):

Anne Leueene “#2 A Simple and boring life. Whaaaaat ? Who would want that? You might as well be dead from the start. Life is not simple! and it can only be boring if you are an exceptionally boring person”

Raw Earth Ink “#2 – I completely agree and actually somewhat similar to my own life decisions. Other than the 9-5 bit. Or only living 40 years. But living a “boring” life? Check. Not caring about superficial shit? Check. Doing the quiet things that bring me peace and a smile? Check”

O.D. “Anything that gets me as far away from drama as possible is a win. And if the absence of drama is boredom, then so be it lol”

Unpopular Opinion #3 It’s perfectly acceptable to break up with someone with mental health issues by u/LokiiVegas

Response(s):

Raw Earth Ink “#3 – I agree that it’s okay to break off a relationship for ANY reason. Yes. I said it: any. When you go into a relationship, it’s not a binding contract. It’s at-will. If it’s working, great. If it’s not, great. If it works for one but not the other, great. No one should feel guilty for walking away from a relationship. With or without a reason. Staying with a person BECAUSE they have a mental illness, in my opinion, is more disturbing. Because you are together for the wrong reasons and creates an unhealthy relationship for BOTH”

O.D. ^^”Everything Tara said”^^

As for today’s unpopular opinion(s) We have four. 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 I love when old men stare at me at nude beaches by u/krunkou

Honestly I love when crusty ass old men stare at me at nude beaches (I’m female btw) People complain about it but nothing beats having an old dude come up to you to awkwardly chat while half chubbed

and no I’m not tryna get with these men or egg them on, I just eat up that kind of attention. feels good getting compliments no?

Unpopular opinion #2 If profanity offends you, you shouldn’t be working in an adult work environment by u/decayingprince

Seriously, if hearing the word “fuck” hurts your feelings, you have bigger problems than someone else’s vocabulary. I could understand if someone directed the word at you, but when someone just uses it as emphasis, there’s really nothing to be upset about. Just put on your big kid pants and deal with it.

Unpopular opinion #3 The death of a pet should be socially accepted and given vacation from work to grief your loss as with any family member that passed away by u/Honestless

As per the title. I hear a lot of people going through the loss of a pet and not being able to take a vacation for a few days so they can properly grief.

You spend years of your life with your pets, they’re closer to you than most family members and still, some bosses would not give a vacation for the fact that “The death of your pet is not an important enough event for which you would not be able to work.”

I know for certain that when and hopefully not soon my dog will die, I would be devastated. Going to work would be the last thing I would like to do in that case.

Unpopular opinion #4 It is not romantic/cute to take food from my plate by u/MinuteEconomy

This goes especially to girlfriends. There’s nothing wrong with sharing food, the part that is annoying is when you take food from my plate without asking and then not apologizing for it by smiling at me especially if it was something that I was saving to eat for last. By doing that, you have ruined my psyche and my whole meal because I usually plan my bites and how I’m going to eat it.

If you want some, order some for yourself or just ask, it’s not that hard.

  1. #1 – as someone who not only struggles with my physical appearance in addition to liking voyeurism/exhibition… I totally get this… I mean, to an extent. There’s nothing wrong with admitting seeing a person as attractive. But you can cross the line too. It’s a balance, but for the most part, I agree with this person as they state it anyway.

    #2 – I disagree. While we don’t need to be offended by every little thing, for many people, things like hand gestures and certain speech patterns are considered rude or foul. Personally, I cuss. But I also respect other people. My mom is even more old-fashioned than me (big surprise, right?!) I respect her and I don’t cuss around her. Has she ever asked me not to? No. But I have respect for other people. If I know it offends, I don’t. My best friend doesn’t cuss around his child. If his son is around, I don’t either. Because I respect him and his wishes. Why do people feel the need to hold on so tightly to unimportant things? Is cussing really necessary or is it just a way of expressing yourself?

    Let’s take it one step further. How about displays of affection. When you are at home, that’s when you are going to generally have sex, grope, passionately kiss, etc. Showing natural affection for your partner. But… you don’t show the same affection in front of your kids, or parents, or co-workers, or grocery clerk. No, you have respect and save it for the appropriate time.

    How about jokes? Do you tell the same jokes in front of your friends or co-workers as you would in front of children or your parents?? Most likely not. See, it’s not that they are wrong, per se, but that there are appropriate times and places.

    #4 – mostly I think the polite thing to do is: Ask First. Then it’s not rude. You don’t take something that isn’t yours… unless you’re eating with someone who you have a spoken agreement that it is okay. Otherwise, to me, it seems rude and disrespectful to take something that isn’t yours.

    1. #2 – You articulated your point masterfully. I think if the person who posted saw this they would see the flaw in their reasoning. Nicely done!

      #4 – Lol this is yet another reason I prefer eating alone.

      I’m actually very uncomfortable eating around others; face-to-face I mean. You’ve got the occasional case of chewing while talking or generally expecting responses whilst I’m downing my food lol Food is such a sensitive area, especially when I’m hungry,
