Some people struggle with binge eating disorder. Criticizing these folks will just make the problem worse.

People are overweight for any number of reasons. It's not cool to judge them for it.

Agreed, i also don't believe most people who "criticize" fat people care about fat people's health. They just don't like seeing them.

my unpopular opinion du jour is that the people who scapegoat fat people are just brassholes.

Yep!

Also, some people lack empathy, so if they’ve never struggled with their weight, they can’t imagine what it must be like for other people.

Being uncharitable and judgemental is not different when you do it.

I like the old WP site with the blue and green better.

Most people go around acting like they are so innocent and important and awesome

They make me want to puke

"Pick your battles" is good but most precious lil "people" pick all the battles. They act like they have a moral right to be happy and if they are not happy it proves that someone violated their "rights"

And they act too enthusiastic, like every thought and emotion that goes through their heads is the latest greatest scientific invention. Way too enthusiastic

And they talk too much

They act like anyone that doesn't talk as much as they do, doesn't speak English

They act like they have a moral right to do anything they want

They act all buddy -buddy.

Assistant store m Don was like that. *Knuckle bumps* and "how ya doing sir" but when he (wrongly) assumed that I lost the barbeque lock, it was like "Dr Jekyll and Mister Hyde".


There is zero point, in wasting time and energy trying to make "friends", if you have to start with idle chatter. No matter how great the idle chatter is, you don't know how they will react in a different situation, and every situation is different.


Sooner or later, I will make a bad or wrong statement or action. Nobody is perfect

The questions are:

1. Did I do it?

2. Is it bad?

3. What is the correct reaction?

Frequently lil dipshits get at least one question wrong


Besides the lil dipshits are not perfect to my standards either

But they act like they are perfect

Miss Universe should be abolished because the contestants are ugly.

The "Miss Universe Contest" should live up to its name!

I wanna see the Grey chicks from the Pleiades, the green spotted chicks from Mars, and the three breasted chicks from the Andromeda Galaxy! :D

Kids deserve the same amount of respect as adults.

My unpopular opinion:

I am a proud leftie, liberal, woke, politically correct snowflake and LGBTQ ally.

I have never been right wing. I know that is horrifying in this current political climate but some people aren't right wingers! 8O 8O

I feel that it's pointless to celebrate the differences between men and women.

I think that gender differences are mostly caused by social conditioning.
