95 Controversial Opinions That Will Divide Your Friends
Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one. But controversial opinions are even worse, as they often create tension between people. What you have to remember is that opinions aren’t facts, just a reflection of people’s beliefs. The problem is that many people have opinions that aren’t really in line with the majority of society.
The advent of social media, free speech, and the rise of right-wing politics has resulted in people having challenging views on controversial issues. While a different perspective is fine, being racist, misogynist, homophobic, or having any other controversial opinions that are hurtful towards others is not on.
Former President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, is one of the many controversial figures with a large public following who has fueled the stream of unpopular opinions that many Americans have. He doesn’t believe in cancel culture and thinks people should be able to say whatever they like, no matter who they are offending. Trump is one of many regular Twitter users who uses the platform as a place to flex his thoughts and post controversial statements about gun violence or abortion, something thousands of other people are also doing.
This article lists a slew of controversial opinions that people have about a range of controversial topics and unpopular opinions. While you might not agree with all of them, they are meant to provoke conversation between people and hopefully help misinformed people understand things related to big issues.
Not every controversial opinion or controversial statement is going to outrage people. Some unpopular opinions, such as whether pineapple should be allowed on pizza, aren’t exactly ground-shattering.
