I Am Going to Say Something Controversial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,786 People

    I totally support legal immigration,

    and I think everyone has the right to apply to live in the U.S. But I don't understand how anyone can justify coming here illegally and being allowed to stay. All countries have immigration laws, including the countries of origin for many undocumented immigrants. So it's not...

    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...

    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.

    I am a blunt and straight to the point person.

    When I see ignorance, I'm quick to break the situation down as simply as possible so the ignorant party can become aware of their foolishness. I really couldn't care less if I offend them. Unless there is something to gain from them, which is most often not the case, I will be...

    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.

    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?

    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...

    Feminism is about equality among the sexes.

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

    I think a lot of Americans would have felt less

    I believe that there should be a mild

    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...

    people reacting over it as if the guy who killed the lion, killed a human being. If this Lion was so special, why didn't they just put him in a zoo where no one could kill him?
