I Am Going to Say Something Controversial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,763 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...

    More people are concerned with

    why women stay in abusive relationships than why men are abusing women.

    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.

    Fat Kids.

    Unless it is due to a medical problem, if your young child is unfit and overweight then you are a bad parent.  There is a little girl in the nursery I work at that is quite overweight...She is just 3 years old and I need help lifting her onto the swing. She can't run with...

    Michelle Obama is actually getting flack

    I believe that anyone should be able to carry a

    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...

    As you sit here and read this,

    a gay couple is getting married and you weren't effected in any way. Not allowing gay marriage isn't going to stop people from being gay, with that being said, why not let people who are gay be happier in their lives?

    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...
