I Believe Everyone Is Entitled to Their Opinion

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,106 People

    I support the notion of free speech,

    but it's a privilege. Your opinion is just as valid as mine, and neither of us necessarily has to like it, but respect for differing opinions is a given.

    No-one is right and no-one is wrong.

    Diversity broadens the realms.

    but, I don't believe it's anyone's right to

    start an argument and use their opinion in place of facts.

    I agree. Depending on how the person was raised

    or the experiences they have gone through, their opinion varies.

    And This Is Mine.

    This is something I have been thinking about for quite awhile. Now for the recorded I will never let myself get taken advantage of. I have come to realize that if my boyfriend (who I have been with happily for the last two year, we are committed and looking forward to many more...

    And I Am One Of Everyone

    Yes.  I absolutely support your right to an opinion. Just be advised that I have one as well.You see, you can't really use "hey, everybody's got an opinion" as an excuse to browbeat me with yours, rationally denying me my right to mine.  Well, I guess you can...but it's not...

    What Do You Think?

    I try and allow eveyone their own opinion.  I can only hope that others allow me the same courtesy.  If you try and "sway" me, I usually only dig my heels in deeper and cling to my belief all the harder.  (It's the German in me.)  However, if you...

    I believe this. I just don't believe everyone

    should share their opinion openly. It's irritating to be watching a show on TV with someone and they all of a sudden start sharing their opinion, disagreeing with what someone on the show said. They're talking, you couldn't care less, you're just trying to watch the show.

    we are all different

    and have different perspectives on things, so it is normal to have different opinions on a subject.

    Honestly being on here is fun,

    however, I find that a lot of people have no regard for others opinions and present theirs as if it's facts... Be grown, take into account your vales then take into account mine.

    Opinions Matter

    We unfortunately live in a world where online logic, reason and opinions are thrown out the window and replaced with insane trollish ramblings and stupidity. We have devolved in what I call a cesspool - a cesspool of the c-word and the -s-word, it saddens me that no one gives...

    Give Me Your Opinion. If You Want. Y'know.

    I freely give my opinion all the time, even when I should probably keep it to myself. I know it is probably inappropriate sometimes. It's something I can't really help, sometimes I feel I just need to say what's on my mind. The thing about me is, I just don't care if people tell...

    when people ask for your opinions,

    and then when you politely give your opinion you get called a hater and they get mad at you for having a different opinion then they did, and they tell you that they don't care about your opinion. If you don't want others opinions, or can't handle being disagreed with, then...

    I Believe Everyone Is Entitled to Their Opinion.

      The reason for my belief, is every time i was asked for my opinion, people either said i was wrong, or told me to shut up and be quiet,. If  i didn't agree with them, i then always felt aweful, after, so in the end i just used to, keep my opinions to myself...

    No Doubt About It.

    Everyone IS entitled to their opinion. But the way I see it is while everyone is entitled to share their opinion, no one is allowed to force their opinion on anyone else. Share what you think, but don't expect everyone else to share the same opinion. We're different and just...

    yes. But everyone should be respected for their opinions, whether you agree with them or not. You can state your side, you can stand up for what you believe in, but don't disrespect someone else for disagreeing with you, and don't push your beliefs onto them, because it's most...

    Opinions Are Great...share Yours With Those Who Care To Hear Them.

    Being able to share our opinions with others is really an HONOR not an entitlement, We need to remember to share them with people who ASK us for them. I therefore do not obligate myself to entertain opinions that I did not ask for. When we write a story; it is NOT an invitation...
