I Am Going to Say Something Controversial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,445 People

    I don't understand how people can dismiss the

    idea of global warming, out of hand. It's not like human beings haven't altered this world in other, tangible ways, generally for our own wants, often negatively. There are species of animals that no longer exist because we've destroyed them. There are even groups of people...

    There is a natural order to things.

    Whenever you conflict with that natural order, you will have problems. The natural order of the sexes is for the man to be dominant and the woman to be submissive and obedient. A woman who is submissive and obedient will (sometimes to her amazement) find true, womanly...

    Today Is Veteran's Day, So Happy Veteran's Day.... Not.

    Today is the day I'm supposed to thank a veteran. Thank them for protecting my freedoms, or something. Hmmm, I think I'll pass. How about: Thanks, but no thanks. It's not that I hate veterans, it's that I'm ambivilant towards them. Let me be clear: I hate the system. The system...

    Judging people is innate.

    The people who insist they don't judge others are liars, and the ones who honestly cannot judge are often hurt or become a victim. We judge for a reason.

    America makes sex for rich people.

    Low income American's don't have free access to birth control, low income schools don't have proper sex education and doesn't teach how contraceptions work, they don't have access to abortions due to not being able to have contraceptions, after having an unplanned kids we don't...

    I find it difficult to accept 'different' people

    for who they are. Let me give some examples: Gays - I'm a little uncomfortable about them. Trans - I think they are psychologically troubled. Feminists - can't stand them for a number of reasons. Jews - I feel they control everything. Other religious people - ignorant. No ifs...

    Religion has made us do heinous things

    throughout history. It had been a conduit. A justification for our sins. How ironic. The Crusades, the Holocaust, French Wars of Religion, the Thirty Years War. Genocide, death, destruction. All in the name of a deity. This goes without saying is a reason I think religion...

    Homosexuality Being A Sin

    For all the people who quote the Bible, in the OT in Leviticus it was also a sin to eat pork an shellfish. It was a sin to have one's hair cut, have tats, piercings. It was a sin to wear clothes of different materials. It was a sin for women to wear pants. It was a sin to...

    Female Pedophiles

    I don't think there's enough awareness about how women are just as capable of molesting and raping children as men are. The only ones we ever see on the news are the teachers that sleep with their male teenaged students, but other than that, you don't ever see it. Some people...

    Men Holding The Door Open

    Usually when men hold the door open for me or let me pass through first, I feel very flattered as if they found me worthy to do something very thoughtful and nice. But if men do not hold the door for me and purposely pass in front of me, I find it very rude. But at that moment, I...

    Money isn't everything.

    Money doesn't impair your abilities to expand your knowledge beyond your government provided education. Saying you know you can't get a scholarship is false. That's just your own self doubt trying to hide behind the idea that you need money to do so. Personally, money is tight...

    Not "controversial" per se,

    Muslims are treated poorly

    because a lot of times on the news, they specifically state the group of people committing the crime were Muslims. if the standards were the same for other major religions, it'd make those religions look bad too. there's good and bad in every group. stop discriminating.
