I Am Going to Say Something Controversial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,449 People

    Feminism is about equality among the sexes.

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

    When he was forced to part ways with Metallica

    Dave Mustaine said he was going to form a heavy metal band to compete with Metallica. Instead he formed a band that was better.

    Although I am a christian I believe there are

    some flaws to this religion and to all religions in general. I believe that the bible is taken to literal and not taken figurative enough. Also many books of the bible are missing and some of the rules and things that were said where meant to be based for that time period. I...

    So I don't understand how plus size model Tess

    Holliday (Munster) is glorifying obesity. She's not saying to stop exercising and eat all the fatty things all in one day. She's simply saying to love yourself no matter what. It doesn't matter your size or what makes you different or what people say. You deserve to love...

    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.

    "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...

    Religious freedom is being allowed to practice

    any religion you choose without persecution. It doesn't mean you can put your religion into laws. It doesn't mean everyone must believe and follow your religion. It doesn't mean your religion is the correct religion. It doesn't mean you can harass, shame, or, degrade those...

    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...

    Kate Winslet's character in Titanic is pretty

    much to blame for the death of Leo's character. She could have been a bit more cooperative in letting him try to climb on the door with her.

    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.

    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...

    Stop Trying To 'Save' Me.

    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...

    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...
