You know what I don't understand? If people share an unpopular opinion, nobody can ever shrug and say "Alright, that's your opinion". It always turns into a big to-do. I think it's kind of interesting when people share unpopular opinions, and I respect that it takes a lot of courage to voice them. Which is why I'm spending this post to divulge some of my own unpopular opinions and ask all of you what yours are, if you feel comfortable sharing them. Just remember. I respect you. If you don't like Lord of the Rings, I respect you. If you don't think Tom Hiddleston is an extremely cute gentleman, I respect you. If you hate cheese... I think you're extremely weird... But hey! I still respect you!
1) I don't like tea.
This is the one that I get the most crap for. Most of the outraged reactions I get for stating an unpopular opinion come from this little fact right here. Another thing is, whenever I tell people I don't like tea, they always assume that I don't like a certain kind of tea. This often leads to some painfully drawn out situations that I'd rather not be in because the amount of scrutiny I'm under in those moments makes me feel like an alien life form.
"I don't like tea."
"You mean, you don't like sweet tea?"
*We're in the south so that's a pretty understandable conclusion because that's what most people mean when they say "tea" here*
"No. I don't like tea."
Yes, I know how weird it is to be able to say honestly that you don't like any kind of tea at all, but I must've tried hundreds of teas in my life. Earl Grey, Green. Sweet Tea, Oolong, a bunch of fruity shit my uncle bought in the East, etc. I have hated every one of them.
Now don't get me wrong, I'm a very polite person and if you go get iced tea and bring me a glass, I'll gulp it down to be polite. However, I will be resisting the urge to gag the entire time.
HOLY SHIT, DO I HATE TEA!
2) FemiNazis rail too hard on SoulCalibur.
Now, don't get me wrong, I agree with some feminist ideals, but they're basically the things that it was built on in the first place. I support equal opportunity, equal pay, and varied representation in media. Also, I will point out that I don't agree with every design that SoulCalibur has ever released. Ivy's costumes in particular drive me insane simply because they seem much too impractical for combat.
HOWEVER, I adore the games in themselves and I'm kind of tired of seeing feminists rage on them because "the boys get armor and the girls wear short skirts and show their boobs". Yeah, I won't deny that some of the roster is too skimpy for practical combat. But... Let me point something out to you...
HALF OF THE MALE CHARACTERS GO SHIRTLESS/OPEN SHIRTED AND DO NOT WEAR PROTECTIVE CLOTHING SO THAT ARGUMENT IS INVALID!!! Yes, they do tend to wear longer pants than the females, but a great fraction of them expose their skin just like the female characters. Maybe the females show their breasts, and maybe the females have some leg sticking out, BUT I DO NOT SEE THE MALES COVERING THEMSELVES ANY BETTER!!!
Yeah, there are exceptions. Patroklos covered himself, and so does Raphael. However, most of them do not, so it's a huge overstatement to say that the females are being overly revealed when the males wear things like this.
Yeah, rail on Taki because her uniform clings to her and she has big boobs. Guess what? I laugh at your argument because Taki's character is one of the fastest on the roster. I wouldn't complain too much about the catsuit if I were you. If she was wearing armor, that astounding speed and agility would mean zip. I don't give a damn that video game physics can overrule that. This isn't a horrible costume for someone with her stats. It's light, and it doesn't have a bunch of material flapping in the wind to give her resistance.
Now, it two, I will admit that she needed to wear a bra, but the developers have gotten slightly better in the later games, or so I've noticed.
This is the one that bugs me. It's impractical. Even if the has a strong weapon, I'll admit that these costumes are fanservice. BUT... This is her model from SC2. Can you say "alternative costume"?
This is her alternate costume from the same game. Not only is it respectable, but it actually kind of pretty. It looks like Captain Amelia from Treasure Planet. Which is why I have to ask if the people who blow up about these games actually bothered to look at the costuming options.
I think XiangHua's kind of adorable in this.
10/10 would cosplay.
3) Dogs are terrifying.
All you need to know is right there.
4) The ending of The Blair Witch Project sucked.
Actually, allow me to clarify. I wasted ninety minutes of my life watching three idiots scream at each other in the woods while something made 3spooky5me noises outside the tent. Half the dialogue consisted of the word "fuck". I got to deal with all of this waiting for it to be scary and the entire ninety minutes lead up to a guy taking a piss in a corner.
The ENDING to The Blair Witch Project didn't suck. THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT SUCKED!
5) Cinderella, Snow White, and Sleeping Beauty are the worst Disney princesses.
Man, pretty girls who can sing and don't have any personality outside of that? MAN, I GOTTA GET ME SOME OF THAT!
