Unpopular opinions

What are some things you believe in that no one else believes in? I've always found Brad Pitt homely looking, he was good looking in Interview with the Vampire, that's it. I don't know why people think he's pretty. He really isn't.

I seem to appreciate really different music and film than most of my friends.

They love Gaga, Madonna, Kylie et al. I have nothing against them but I like a lot of alternative music (true indie, not what they call 'alternative rock' these days), jazz, R&B, classic alternative, etc. My friends are always like "WTF are you talking about?"

Same with films. I have never seen Titanic, or LOTR, or any Twilight movies, or most big box office movies. I usually like smaller, quieter films that are character based.

I don't pick these things to be a "snob" - it's just what speaks to me.

I think Michelle Obama has been an abysmal First Lady. Other than advocating better school lunches, she would rather be a fashionista than tackle the real issues. As the first African-American First Lady, it would be nice had she addressed the problems in the inner-city African-American community, most notably broken homes. Women raising children while the husband/boyfriend are in prison.

MO doesn't relate to the problems of poor blacks. She is the product of an upper-middle class family.

The guilt trip that is called compassion. Accidents, misery/misfortune, catastrophies, and death happen all around us and yet we are supposed to be politically correct and feel sorry for each and every single incident other people and the media make us aware of.

It's our so called moral duty to stop what we are doing (or were planning to do) to comfort other people with our compassion and support, because they need their (drug)fix of compassion and support in order to feel whole again (even when they are not even directly invovled in that tragic event).

R6 Michelle Obama was raised in an apartment her parents rented. Her father worked for the city as a water pump inspector. That hardly qualifies as being upper-middle class.

Jesus, R1, that was a typo. And I still makes no sense to me how someone could think Brad Pitt was good looking IN only one movie. If someone find him "homely" in general, that's a matter of opinion (though kinda strange), but it's not as if he looked so different in INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE than in any number of other movies.

Having a type you prefer to have sex with discriminates against every other person in the world who doesn't meet the criteria. Yes, it's discrimination but why do people feel mad when they don't get a chance to sleep with said person who has a particular type? It's life, get over it and look for the person who prefers to have sex with you, because you are his or her type.

r11 then that would bolster my argument even more. She should understand the struggles that is happening in the black community.

As a powerful and successful woman in her own right, why hasn't she used that influence to talk about issues that that affect the black community? or any community that riddled by poverty and single motherhood. 72% of black kids raised by a single mother. Worse, many are being raised by grandparents.

So far, the only thing MO has really embraced, is Jason Wu. What a wasted opportunity for a national discussion.

[quote]it would be nice had she addressed the problems in the inner-city African-American community, most notably broken homes. Women raising children while the husband/boyfriend are in prison.

Basically you want her to address the issues you want her to address--because diet and obesity are issues in inner-city African-American lives, at least if you've read something about it recently. Don't carry on as though helping to teach people ways to raise their children in better health isn't an issue, just because you like the dramatic "men in prison" issue better.

You also stink like a Republican. They love to go on about single black welfare queens and law-breaking black men.

First Ladies can and do make a great impact. They don't yield the power of the Presidency, but what they do, say and wear gets discussion going. When you are the first black First Lady, whether you want it or not, much is expected from you.

So for in MO's tenure, she's been quite ho-hum. She has stuck to how conservative First Ladies treat their role: merely to play the good wife. If that's what MO is content with, then her legacy as First Lady will be nothing more than the honorable distinction of being the first black FLOTUS.

I prefer the Eleanor Roosevelts and Hillary Clinton. Controversial, make-no-apologies movers and shakers. Eleanor highlighted the plight of the underprivileged and racial prejudice at the time by by inviting Marian Anderson to sing at the Lincoln Memorial after the Daughters of the American Revolution refused her.

If you expect nothing from your FL r17, then that is exactly what you got from MO.

The criticism of Michelle Obama is uncalled for. Because she is black you expect her to be about things black. Poverty knows no color in America.

The first lady has many responsibilities and each chooses an area of interest to work at. Michelle and Jill Biden have worked very hard to support military families. Her eating healthy and fitness work is admirable. Blacks have many health problems affected by diet and any success she might have will impact that community.

What did Either Bush first lady do that was so special? Nancy Reagan was known for "just say no" to drugs while we consumed them like guppies feeding.

R7, that's just common sense.

Some folks on this board have problems understanding the definitions of words. Men who truly identify as straight will only - ONLY - sleep with women.

That being said, a vast majority of people in the world don't fall into a 100/0 balance when it comes to sexuality. There are men - bisexual men, or masculine gay men - who either have sex with men and women, or evoke the masculine persona that is associated with heterosexuality. But that does not make them straight men.

It also speaks to a much deeper issue of internalized homophobia, self-loathing, because those folks view "gay" or anything not exaggeratedly masculine as secondary, or a bad thing, or defective. It speaks to their own feelings about gay men and about women.

R41, I'd say that might depend on what your education is in. We sure as hell don't need any more liberal arts or English majors. I mean think about it, if they don't go to war who will write the great war novels and poems?

In WWII almost everyone went to war. There were some people who got exempted because of their work but many of them were still considered shirkers. My dad was an engineer and went to war and my uncle was an engineer and didn't want to go to war. Guess who is more highly respected in my family? I credit my dad's smarts in helping to keeping him and his men alive. I'm also sure my dad's experiences in war and the military served him and those he worked for very well throughout his life.

I've never understood why the FLOTUS was expected to have a cause that they didn't have before their husband was elected. A lot of the time the cause that they elect to work for turns into a joke (Just Say No) and doesn't do anyone much good.

I wish that if they did pick up a cause it would be worthwhile one, and one they would be 100% behind and making a big deal over it. I think what Michele Obama is doing for school lunches, and healthy eating in general, is a worthy cause, but she seems to be doing a half assed job of it.

I also agree with R42. The people who start wars should be willing to have their children fight those wars. Also think that wars should only be started by people who truly understand the consequences of war, not armchair warriors who have read about them in books

Michelle Obama cannot concentrate on a black issue. She will be accused of only caring about her own people. She needs to focus on something that affects all Americans, including blacks. For the same reason she can't talk about her family history because it brings up unpleasant facts about America's history.

I've really tried but just cannot reconcile deep religious conviction with extreme intelligence. So what to do with Stephen Colbert & Alton Brown?

@R101: religion is a construct of man, indeed. But if this evil is not at the root, then why is it only religious groups that people sought to join? If it is merely the desire to be part of a group, there are numerous other opportunities going back millennia that would have afforded seekers of power and authority to exercise control, and yet it always seems to come back to religion. Governments rise and fall; companies thrive and fail; religion goes on forever, unabated.

And what we fight over is more often then not some aspect of belief, whether it's which brother is the rightful heir to the deity, or whether the concept of god, son and spirit is one or three distinctions, among many other, what would be considered in a rational world, minor differences. It's only religions that condemn each other to death, and while many other groups may harbor such desires, they always bring it back to faith to achieve their destructive goals.

The Abrahamic religions are where psychopaths try to find a sense of morality. The people attracted to it are the ones born without an innate sense of fairness and empathy that the rest of humanity possesses without effort.

Basically, they're trying to become more human like the rest of us, so they flock to a church to "save their souls" but it doesn't work because churches are tantamount to the blind leading the blind. So they end up reinforcing their psychopathic behavior with the force of rules laid out for them by their immoral leaders.

It's a pity, but that's how cruel nature can be. Some people are born without a sense of humanity, fair play, and empathy and they spend their lives futilely trying to get what the rest of us are born with and take for granted.

I don't think that "marriage" should be a gay aspiration or political demand. Civil Unions with complete legal and financial rights and equality is the better idea to me.

I am partnered for nine years, monogamous and happy. We are a mixed race couple and live in Canada, where same sex marriage is very legal. I am not closeted or self-loathing.

I would never call my boyfriend my husband, and cringe when two people of the same sex refer to each other as wife and wife, or hubby and husband. YUK. Spouse is fine, boyfriend sounds good, partner applies. We call each other by name, together a couple, and lots of things in private......

I think gay weddings are silly and sheep-like and far more hetero-normative than anal sex. I love to fuck. What man doesn't?

Breeding should be highly regulated and controlled by the government.

All children should be sterilised at birth [or at least by the time they hit puberty]. I don't mean by removing sexual organs, but simply tying the appropriate tubes so that eggies and spermies can never meet.

Then, when a person is AT LEAST 30 years old, and is a decent person and can provide for themselves and a child, the person can ask for permission to reproduce.

If all children truly were wanted and loved, probably 95% of society's problems would melt away.
