I Am Going to Say Something Controversial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,419 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...

    Morals are subjective.

    Just because you feel something is morally wrong, does not mean someone else feels the same and needs to adhere to what you believe. And before someone makes a comment about murder, rape, or any other violent acts against people, it's already being done so they're just proving...

    I feel that Children shouldn't have electronics

    such as tablets, smartphones, etc. until they reach a certain age. Electronics handheld or portable, can cause a lack of communication and health problems such as eye strain, shoulder pain or neck pain that kids shouldn't experience at an early age. For now they should be...

    I think it's funny how everyone forces you to

    accept gay marriage by forcing it into our justice system, churches, organizations, politics, music, television shows, and schools. And they're excuse is "We're here, we're queer, get used to it." If someone says they support gay marriage, everyone respects and supports them...

    Whenever I hear someone rambling on about how

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

    I actually have a question of how insensitive

    something may be. As far as I'm aware of, I'm fertile. My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 5 years and we live in southern Louisiana. I set all this up because we're constantly asked when we've having kids. Not if, but when. We both say we don't want them and for...

    I would never get out on the streets

    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...

    Although I am a christian I believe there are

    Homosexuality Being A Sin

    Stop Trying To 'Save' Me.

    Kate Winslet's character in Titanic is pretty

    When people say they don't agree with feminism

    because of misandrists or "feminazis" it's like if Christians stop believe in God because of the Westboro Church.

    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.
