A pretty tame one by comparison to most of the posts here;
I believe that if someone I dislike dies I should be able to continue vocalising my thoughts after their death.
Q.E.D.
My P.E. teacher killed himself when I was at school, I hated that prick. He ridiculed me, took the side of the bullies and gave me detention for refusing to do forward rolls (yes really (at 6'10" they're not easy to do)
I continued vocalising my thoughts after his death and even people that didn't like him suddenly started remembering him in a fond light, what fucking hypocrisy is that?

Another of my views is that...
Being bullied for being gay or of a different race does not make you special. Bullying someone for something they can't change is wrong regardless of what that thing is, and just because you're a gay, black, polish hindu (not actually happened but exaggerated for comic effect) does not mean you should get special treatment and that all bullying should be dealt with with the same punishment and detest.
These people don't bully because they're being bullied, they're just pieces of shit that need to be dealt with quickly and forgotten about.

Also;
As an Englishman,
The French, American, Indian and German cultures are fascinating and to be respected.

Brad Shepard:
My unpopular opinion? More then liklely the first comment I ever got crap over on this site, that Suicide is the cowards way out.

Damn right. And I've seen the trauma it leaves behind, for them it's over but the hurt it causes for others is insane.

I think MLP sucks ass, and when I see people with MLP as their avatar I facepalm. Also, I like My Chemical Romance and pop punk, though if people are going to hate on me for that, they can go fuck themselves. Pot should be legalized and republicans are retarded, though these don't seem to be very unpopular.

(Edit: Shit, I misinterpreted the thread. Eh. It's still an unpopular opinion.)

I hate the military. Armies. The idea of a country leader getting into a pissy with another country leader and sending hundreds/thousands/millions of unrelated mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, etc to their deaths to settle it. It's fucking pathetic. The people the army you're supporting so much are killing are just bystanders fed the same bullshit you have whose families would certainly not like to have their son sent home in a coffin next christmas. I get physically disgusted at the "SHOW SUPPOART FOAR R TRUPZ!!1 DEYZ HEROEZ!!". If today's definition of a 'hero' is someone who guns down innocent people then I can safely say I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
The 'evil' one, if they even are evil and not just someone your country's leader is annoyed with, isn't the thousands of people your army kills so that your leader can get their way, it's the other country leader. Leaders should sort it out between themselves, not get thousands of people fucking killed.
I could go on, but I'm tired.

I don't see why we need both muffins and cupcakes. Open your eyes, people!

There. I said it. I'm not apologizing.

I oppose gay marriage, abortion, the death penalty, war in general, copyright laws and lengthy prison sentences. I support marijuana legalization, state-funded healthcare and increased funding to defense and space programs.
Yeah, it looks like I get my opinions from playing with a political dartboard.

Im pretty sure theres plently of evidence that fucking with people from a young age caues them to have serious issues...none of which are good for society

if somone has depression (the real thing) then they need medical treatment, just like somone who has any other diease, you dont cure your apedicitis by cutting the thing out yourself do you?

this is what Im getting here

lets say you have somone who is yes, physically weak and mabye a little on the shy side, he's also incredibly bright and creative

but then youve got this other guy who is built like a tank, loud, obnoxious and dumb as a brick...hes the kind to victimize the other guy...is his life really worth more? whats he got to contribute? other than being a thug

I dont know if your Ideal version of the world is a fallout-like wasteland where people are fighting left right and centre, but some of us dont see being locked in some constant struggle as the absolute epitome of existance

Im all for teaching people to resistant, of coarse "everyone gets a prize" is bullashit, being able to deal with problems that come your way is an important life skill...just because somone grows up with a loving mum and dad in a nice 1st world countey doesn tnot mean they dont have it. This darwinism attitude is jut....over the top

Wars have been started for less! I demand a duel good sir!

I am a communist, Marxist to be precise

I think democracy is a faulty system and should be replaced by a dictatorship or aristocracy la Plato's Politeia, paired with behaviourist elements of Skinner's Walden Two (read: centralised child raising, eugenics).

Edit:
Oh, and while we're at it: I think atheists who claim to be definitely 'right' are just as bad as fundamentalists, because both think that they know how things 'really' are (i.e. God exists or doesn't exist, respectively). We cannot know if there is a God. Just because the concept of 'God' is manmade, it doesn't mean that no God exists, which is why I, personally, am agnostic.
To be frank, those extreme atheists are even more annoying to me than religious fanatics. At least no one takes the latter seriously.

Another one: I think that left-wing extremists are just as bad as right-wing extremists. Possibly worse, because people still take the left-wings seriously because they keep saying "We are against national socialism!". Both groups consist of intolerant scum. Yes, I acknowledge my own intolerance there.

Aaand another one: Possibly not an unpopular opinion, but life has clearly become too easy. You don't need the slightest bit of intelligence anymore to survive. This is also the reason why life, nowadays, is very boring. Sure, we may have financial problems or whatever, but when do we ever need to fear more absolute things, like death? Something like a zombie apocalypse would, maybe, not be such a bad thing.

Another: I dislike people who use 'Q.E.D.' after posting their opinion (or even after delivering arguments) because they think it makes them sound smart, or 'more right'. 'Q.E.D.' is used after deductively (read: logically) proving something, like in maths.

I also dislike neither America nor Apple nor Microsoft nor any other country or company per se. People who claim to 'hate' them because they do their job (i. e., successfully making money in the case of companies) are stupid.

...I could go on and on.

no offense but if said "physically weak but incredibly bright and creative" kid can't figure out how to stand up for himself and outsmart the "big dumb brick" kid than he wasn't all that bright or creative to begin with

I'm not saying we should just let kids go at it and beat each other to death... tho that would solve a lot of problems... just that some bullying between kids is for the best when it is within reason... it's honestly the best time to introduce and teach people that they need to toughen up before the real world because there are people around to make sure it doesn't get to far... it's far better for them to learn it as a kid than to be thrust out into the real world alone while they are still pussies who will be beaten down and taken advantage of at every single opportunity... and I never said we should just let the kids pick on each other to no end.. hell a big strong kid beats up a small little one than the little one needs to learn how to rise above it and stop it from happening... if all else fails than an adult should backhand both of them... the bully for being an ass and the other one for being a little bitch... because neither extremes are desirable.. but the way it works today the kid cries and the bully get punished so now all you have done is teach the kid that whenever life gets hard it's ok to be a whiny little bitch cause he can just cry and call it unfair and someones will solve his problems

society today in 1st world countries has become way to soft... it's why we see so many whiny crybaby "adults" who are completely inept at taking care of their own problems...

I dont think its ever that simple....

anyway I dont think bullying is ever ok, and the bullies themselfs...well I hear they dont exactlaly turn into prodoctive members of society (and theyre assholes who should get away with it)

thease days the school systm mabye doesnt do much for teaching kids resiliance, being told they are brilliant when they arnt, everyone gets an award and peoples feelings arnt hurt (Ive read plenty of cracked.com articles on the subject)

so yeah, them turing into adult children who cant deal with the pressues of the real world..that I can understand, I dont think it has much "specificlaly" to do with bullying in the traditional sense but more of the "bubble wrap" mentality, and people blaimg everyone else for their problems

but this "social darwinim" shit's just too extreme..and I dont belive punishing kids for being "whiney bitches" does them all that good..like my past point...issues

Matthew94:
I think children with severe mental deficiencies (to the point where they aren't conscious of who they are or where they are etc) should either be killed or have all medical care cut off from them.

They don't do anything and cost the government thousands before they die. That money could go to a better cause.

*Flame shield up*

agreed, its a terrible thing euthanasia, but honestly, for people so close to dying there is little you can do, or for people who cannot contribute regardless if they live, well, the resources keeping them alive are all for naught really.

if i ever get into that state (and i hope to hell i don't) if there was almost no chance of me living, or ever being able to contribute in any meaningful way, i would rather they just end it, so long as they end it quick.

neonsword13-ops:
Fallout 3 was better than New Vegas.

Atmosphere in 3 was superior in every way.

*Flameshield... UP!*

I disagree solely because I think it comes down to what you expected from a fallout game and your opinions of the first 2.

Then again, it's your opinion so It's most certainly not wrong.

I despise what is becoming the norm in British (though I am sure this happening elsewhere) youth, the legions of idiots who are obsessed in looks and popularity and have absolutely to use in later life. People who breeze through school not learning anything who complain when their life is awful and get annoyed about their dead end careers. These people should be sent to labour camps and forced to mine or something and leave people who actually matter alone!

Also I didn't think much of Borderlands, still believe in marriage, hate people who complain about how bad THEY have it (looking at you Relish In Chaos), believe the ends justify the means and think pornography is messed up...

bah we should just replace all teachers with USMC drill instructors... solve all those kid's problems...

You should have to take an exam before you vote. The exam would be on the various polocies of the candidates. If you fail the exam you lose the right to vote.

Ah paradoxes fun for the whole family!

Captcha:take a look.

I don't think parents are selfish, though I do think that couples who have IVF are.

There are tons of kids in the care system who desperately need to be adopted into a good home and instead you chose to spend thousands of your money so you could concieve naturally. Congrats, your down on cash and a vulnerable child continues to grow up in care and have his/her chances of a decent life reduced.

I don't think universities should hold places for state school people over privately educated kids. The most successful people should get in, not have someone with lesser grades than them take their place.

What if said kid is too busy getting the shit kicked out of them by their parents at home getting fractures and sexual abuse to know what to do about bullies because their parents won't teach them anything other then physical and emotional pain, where they begin to picture that abuse is all they know and deserve it because they are brought up to feel worthless?

I guess it would be their fault too then? not everyone has a wonderful peachy life where they can rely on role-models to teach them to stand up for themselves.

Yikes, that was a big quote

Always interesting to hear justifications of these views.

Haseo21:
I thought Splice was a bad movie.

Pot should be legal.

I think both the Republicans and Democrats are major idiots, however I think Democrats are slightly bigger idiots.

Dogs are better than cats.

Altair is way more awesome than Ezio.

Atheism is just as silly as theism, polytheism, etc. (mind you, this one gets me the most shit)

I hate hipsters and people who pretend to be nerds.

I think most bronies are annoying.

Fuck you chemistry!

*FLAME SHEILD...ENGAGE*

Edit:
I would like to add that dubstep sucks!

I agree with all of those points except I prefer cats. Mainly because i'm lazy.

I think bars and alcohol should be considerably restricted in things like location, opening times and how many people should be admitted at a certain time, how many units a person can buy. Why? Because some drunk people are (besides annoying, selfish and idiotic) dangerous. Quite dangerous.

Speaking on behalf of my childhood, you sir, are wrong. I was mercilessly bullied verbally, emotionally and physically for nearly a decade and it's this kind of shit that enables that torment. We do not punish the kid who got punched in the face infront of an entire lunch hall full of people. We not tell a bullied child to spend his time in the library because we cannot be bothered to enforce some discipline in the cuntbags who torment him. We do not assume it's good character development for a child to have to wait until his teacher leaves the room and use that teacher as a personal escort to avoid being lynched by his classmates.

You do not expect a bullied child to learn how to stand up for themselves when given mountains of different advice from different people. There is no justification for this behaviour. Period. Nothing good can ever come out of bullying, it is not teasing among friends, it's a traumatic experience for those on the recieving end of it and it colours their perceptions of people for the rest of their lives, and it results in the bullys developing into the assholes of the adult world, either being the tyrannical boss in your job or the guy who knifes you for your wallet.

Do not try and tell someone who was bullied that it was justifiable in any way. It's like pissing on Quran infront of Al-quiada.

There. I said it. I'm not apologizing.

cupcakes are just small cakes, a muffin is more like bread and are quite different from each other actually, and i refuse to lose either! dont try and take my Sunday morning fruit muffin from me...i will cold stab a guy for that.

my unpopular ideas would probably be things like:
i would honestly support a communist regime
Satanists are a bunch of childish fucks
in terms of religion i think people should be allowed to believe what ever the hell they need to get through the day, just keep it to themselves (also i dont think Druidism should be considered a real religion for charitable status...dont know why though?)
i prefer modern rpgs to all those so called retro classic ones

i am sure there is more but im tired

The British empire was a damn fine thing, and if possible should be brought back.

Hell, I would do with making the Commonwealth a sovereign union of all included.

Having your own biological child is comepletely different to adoption.

Added to that, adoption can be a very expensive, long and painful process. A woman I know had trouble conceiving, her and her husband tried IVF but it didn't take so they tried adoption. It took them three years to be accepted to adopt a child from Belarus (I think, I'm not entirely sure where it was) and just as all the paper work was complete the country closed for adoption for a number of years so everything fell through.

It took them three more years to get another chance and they eventually got a girl from Russia. Throughout all of this, both parents suffered from severe depresssion and had to go through a lot of councilling before and after adopting the child (particularly the mother). Her sister also had to adopt and had a very similar experience. It's not like Futurama, where you can go into the Orphanarium and pick out the most attractive child.

If I had to choose between that ordeal and IVF (presuming it was a viable option) I'd choose the latter in a heartbeat.

I believe that a socialist technocracy aiming for a post-scarcity economy while still having a green agenda is they way forward.

Most of the time people don't seem to understand the terms but rather pick out the socialism and be like "HURR STALIN DERP"

Try the vast majority of it. I had occasions where I'd be surrounded by students two years younger than me and having things thrown at me. I couldn't report them to any teachers because I had no clue who they were. It was the done thing at my school.

The only time it stopped was when I went apeshit on some kid in my first year. For a week or so afterward the people who would give me shit would ask me if I'd actually beaten up that kid, usually in an awed voice. Surreal time.

Relish in Chaos:

*Sees your flame shield up, simply walks around it and faces you* Hey there.

OT: No worries, I am not going to judge you nor act negative toward you. I'm simply quoting you because I found your OP interesting. Some points stood out to me, while others I keep having to look over because I forget things from time to time.

What I wanted to reply with is that though it can be true for people wanting kids just to have a 'prized feeling' that it's their kids (their genes) that are being a success while other parents weren't ready for the full responsibility when the time came to raise kids. However, do note that misery and pain can help people mature. No, not despair or anything really bad.. those leave scars. I'm talking about life's morals and teachings through the tough times. I've been through a lot, and it helped me become a better person by choice.

Yeah sounds cheesy, I know, I know... but, really it left me appreciating what I can be instead of what I could of ended up like. I do have to say though, I admire your point about "your actions can impact people no matter how small you think they are." because it's actually true. I remember when I was having a crummy day, that a person saying hi and holding the door for me really made me feel better for the long run. Simple gestures, acts, and notice can make a difference (unless you're sidetracked, which tends to happen a lot with the majority of people.) Besides, I like helping people.. gives me a purpose in life while trying to become a better person myself.

If you ever need to talk, rant, or want advise in any way.. please do talk to me or PM me. I help with people all the time and listen to what they have to say. Also no catch, I just like helping people because though the world is cruel beyond imagination, it doesn't hurt to least make it 1% better by yourself.. because when you try, then others will try. Motivation is the key to a better society generally. Maybe never fully, but a much better side in things I ensure you.

I understand, but I just have a hard time at seeing the world as anything but bleak, and even though misery and pain can, in some cases, help people mature, soon enough, they just get knocked down again like a bowling pin. And for many people, it can feel like they're ridden with bad luck, even if it's entirely random and indiscriminate.

I've had the worst four years of my life, and while I feel as if it has made me mature (although that could just be because I'm getting older), it doesn't make me feel me any better. The most important thing it made me see is how shitty the world is and how it destroys people, and I'm not just talking about myself. I'm talking about loads of people, around the world, people suffering and it's not even their fault.

I don't like how some people think that they can just determine everything for a life that hasn't even come into existence yet. Human beings have free will, and sure enough, they're going to go off and do their own thing. Or maybe they're not, and just drain the planet's resources. No, they'll do that either way. And everyone has to pay for it. And where's that love now? Love doesn't matter if you're knee-deep in the mud. At the moment, no amount of kind gestures can give me hope that the next day or even the next week will be any better than the last. It's just a fleeting joy that merely dissipates within the moment.

Thanks for your offer, and I might take you up on it in the future, if I need it. As I've aforementioned, I'm already on a waiting list for CBT, although I don't know when I'll actually ever get seen.

I think humanity needs some form of natural selection (unsure if under my view it should be called unnatural or imposed selection) or else we will face devolution. My thinking is that people who have genetic conditions, ill, weak or unintelligent shouldn't be allowed to reproduce while the best and brightest should (sex would be allowed just not reproduction).

Make no mistake I don't want to genocide those groups of people.

I know it's a horrible theory but I think it will be necessary for humanity to keep evolving, plus we could potentially wipe out some genetic diseases within a few generations.

I wouldn't agree with a mass cull of the mentally and physically disabled, but damn, if you can see in the womb, long before birth is anywhere near, that your future child is going to never experience life in a normal, healthy way, by which I mean, having the independence to look after yourself, then I'd suggest let them go. Certainly they can express happiness and even love, but surely, given the choice wouldn't anyone wish their child was fit and healthy?

I'm afraid that I can never believe the words 'We'd not change a thing about our child', when he or she is unable to feed itself or use the bathroom unaided. If you're saying that it's not so different to saying 'We're happy our child is disabled'. Of course it's only my view, but I believe they mean 'We're happy to have a child, and we'll deal with the problems.'

Just go for the termination and try again, or adopt. Save yourself and your future child decades of incredibly hard work for no reason. IF you already have a disabled person in your family, of course you love them and I'd not expect anything to change, but when given the choice between disabled or not, I can't imagine choosing to inflict that on an unborn child.

Also, worldwide, no-one gets to give birth to more than one child in their home country while there's kids in orphanages, you want a child, go get one. If you're that desperate for the pain of childbirth, get to the orphanage, show an abandoned child a lifetime of love, and I'll give you a free kick in the clacker as some compensation for not going thru childbirth again.

Welfare, I'm more than happy to see a sizable chunk of my taxes go to protecting the weaker members of society, and if you're against this, you're the very reason we need it.

At present fraud on disability allowance is estimated at 0.5%, of a total cost of DLA to the UK of 2 billion. By my maths, that's 100 million in fraud (less than is lost to human error), yet the government are paying ATOS the same 100 million each year to test those least able to defend themselves, and failing in 70% of cases, their rejections being overturned.

Putting all that aside, spending 100 million to save part of 100 million is fucking retarded.

I'll forever happily pay a little extra tax to allow cheats to live frugally on welfare if it means we're not fucking over the weakest people.

The new rules on Tax on charitable donations, while I'm against it because I don't believe for a moment George Osbourne is doing it for any reason than it will lead to the deaths of sick kids and the elderly and infirm, and that makes him visibly tumescent, I'd be for it from someone who was looking to cut the loopholes allowing churches and private schools to register as charities.

Lastly, I believe socialism is a good thing, and I believe mild socialism is not actually the exact same thing as extremist communism.

Oh, and I think Michael McIntyre AND Stewart Lee are funny.
