To ask what unpopular opinions you hold? (Lighthearted)

NC (not for this) but I'm long-standing MNer (Pom bear, naice ham...)

This might ruin the whole concept of AIBU but sometimes people pop up with opinions that I am shocked by, not because of what they are but just because they are so marginal. (SPs Cliff Richard obsession, for example?)

So, whilst encouraging you all to go forth and spread your weird and wonderful thoughts all over AIBU and elsewhere, what really unpopular opinions do you hold?

I have a couple of corkers, first one is that Kanye West however much of a knob he is actually is a genius.

I am of the opinion that Johnny Depp is creepily unattractive.

SPsWouldCatFishNev Wed 20-Nov-13 17:47:33

not an obsession

Russell Howard is attractive! It seems other people have no taste. grin

SPsWouldCatFishNev Wed 20-Nov-13 17:48:10

Sassy I agree. He is terrifying as is Benedict Cumber-WhatsIt

swimming with dolphins is inherently weird and i don't understand why anyone would want to do it.

OvaryAction Wed 20-Nov-13 17:48:47

I don't like cheese.

In fact I hate it. And milk.

The way they coat your tongue and teeth <shudders>

DawnOfTheDee Wed 20-Nov-13 17:50:09

I'm with you mrsWast. I think they look smug.

halfwildlingwoman Wed 20-Nov-13 17:51:02

I think dogs should live outside....

When there was a thread in baby names debating the name Jupiter, I just thought, cool, I know an awesome one.
In fact I am of the opinion that it's ok to like and use slightly off the wall names. (Ducks for cover)

Geillis Wed 20-Nov-13 17:53:55

I don't like kids. There. I've said it. Mine are ok though.

WallyBantersJunkBox Wed 20-Nov-13 17:55:45

Cats on surfaces other than the floor....disgusting. Makes me dry heave.

I do not meal plan and embrace frozen food.

CoffeeTea103 Wed 20-Nov-13 17:56:47

Hate catsconfused

hermioneweasley Wed 20-Nov-13 17:57:00

Junkies and other unfit parents should be sterilised.

MrsBennetsEldest Wed 20-Nov-13 17:58:23

Gellis I'm with you on that one. Mine are great.

Fleta Wed 20-Nov-13 17:58:24

I cannot bear cats. At all.

I believe in ghosts

Soldierskittle Wed 20-Nov-13 17:58:36

That it's possible to over think babies / children

I think dogs should live outside....

I agree. And mine does.

welshnat Wed 20-Nov-13 18:01:12

Another one that agrees with you Gellis. I hate all kids/teenagers/students -except my own perfect ds grin

WooWooOwl Iran Wed 20-Nov-13 18:01:56

Child tax credits should be scrapped and people should pay for their own children.

SPsWouldCatFishNev Wed 20-Nov-13 18:02:02

I let my son have free range of the kitchen. Nothing is forbidden apart alcohol and cigs til he is at least 5

grin

he can also go where ever he wants in the house too

MrsDrRanj Wed 20-Nov-13 18:02:52

hermione

I used to be a cocaine addict, my life was a complete mess. I am now completely clean and have an amazing DS and if I do say so myself I'm a great mum. But you think I never should have got the chance?

usualsuspect Wed 20-Nov-13 18:03:00

Aldi and Lidl are crap.

PMDD Wed 20-Nov-13 18:03:03

That for most children, it is better for a parent (doesn't have to be mum) to be at home to raise them, drop them off at school, pick up from school, be there in the holidays. All the way up till they are well into their teens.
