I Am Going to Say Something Controversial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,471 People

    I prefer helpful people to nice people

    as the helpful ones are not afraid to be honest if that's what you seem to require to further function as a human being or just a friend while nice people only tell you what you want to hear with your needs put to rot on the sidelines to make space for your wants...

    I am tired of living in a heteronormative world

    where religious beliefs and bias opinions override the truth. Religion is something that should remain personal. However, I feel that religion is something that contorts many believers minds into oblivion. I'm not saying that everyone with a religion acts this way, it's just...

    I never want to be pregnant mostly

    because it'll be inconvenient and I'll have to give up caffeine and alcohol.

    The way I see things is - everyone has the

    right to live their life the way they want. They can choose who they want to marry, if they want to be religious or not, what job they take, what hobbies they do and interests they have..... most people agree with this. . If the above is true then shouldn't we have the right to...

    I was talking to my 89-year-old grandma this

    morning about my breakup and she said 'the problem with girls today is they want to lead and get their own way all the time, but most of them have no idea what they actually want'. You might be right, Grandma.

    Many religious people are very spiteful.

    They're always against something and are quite judgemental. Atheists have their share of being judgmental, atheist here, but I've never heard of one standing outside a church and cussing at religious people. Instead of helping "other children of God" they're out promoting hate...

    Truly, God is nothing

    but a myth. The church is even corrupt by its ways. Religion is like this: love me or go to hell and suffer. Honestly, it's fine to really have faith but in the end of the day, it's nothing but a myth. Propaganda and scapegoats are used nowadays for religion to gain more brain...

    This might sound terrible,

    but it makes me so mad when girls sleep around and get knocked up by accident because they were careless and have a baby that they didn't really want, when meanwhile there's so many women out there that want a baby more than anything but can't have one.

    Stop Trying To 'Save' Me.

    There are currently 203 stories in the group 'I Don't Believe In God', 33 of those stories are written by believers with the aim of converting the group members. It is my opinion that we need to respect one and others right to our own beliefs. I feel it to be rude, arrogant...

    they never judge people I immediately judge them as being someone that is probably more judgmental than most of us.

    "Terrorist" is being used to describe opponents

    of our nation because people will support the killing of terrorists, but not the killing of 'the other team.' 9/11 ended far fewer lives than the cities we've bombed in the Middle East, and certainly nobody was raped in 9/11 as American soldiers sometimes do to Middle Eastern...

    Feminism is about equality among the sexes.

    Nothing else. I can't believe this is viewed as a controversial ideal.

    I'm an Atheist and a feminist.

    I'm pro-choice, I never want children, I have tattoos and piercings, and dye my hair unnatural colors. I'm controversy personified. And what's better is that I know I'm not the only one.

    " Hearing this phrase is getting so old. First off, most people that say this don't even understand what "judging" is. To judge someone is usually to pronounce them guilty or innocent, right or wrong, good or bad, etc. So when we say we don't want anyone being judgmental anymore...
