What are your unpopular opinions?

My unpopular opinion is the American pit bull should only have handlers who have a special permit to own them. I hate when people say “the reason why he attacked was because he was abused” because that isn’t always the case with American Pit bulls. You see, animals have instincts. Pit bulls were bred to have certain qualities and instincts specifically for ripping each other apart in dog fights. Sometimes those instincts come out no matter how much you treat that dog well and how much you love it. Like a tiger (or any other wild animals), you can love it but sometimes they can bite back.It’s not the dog’s fault it has instincts, but we should all be aware that special people who have the time to train their pit bull should only be allowed to have one.

I use to not think this and believed that pit bulls were harmless if they had good owners. But then an experience changed my life. I was walking to the school bus stop and I heard growling. I looked and before I could even react two pit bulls jumped on me. My older brother stood there because there was no way he could help me (pit bulls are very powerful animals). I ended up freeing myself and the school buss pulled up. I hopped inside while the dogs were trying to paw through and kill me. The owner of those pit bulls were not abusive toward their dogs. In fact, they treated their dogs better than most dog owners. However, they neglected to think that their dogs have a natural instinct to lock onto prey. I was a small child at the time walking to the school bus so both the animals instincts kicked in and tried to attack me despite the owner screaming for them to stop. That is what made me have my unpopular opinion.

Tell me your unpopular opinions or stories. I’m curious

The pitbull issue is a difficult one to settle, given people's inclination to side with the best examples of that breed living amongst people. It's good that there are people who are willing and capable to care for these animals, but I agree, and I think we shouldn't try to entirely quell concern as they were bred to have aggressive tendencies for a purpose. We want to give an accurate idea of how to appropriately handle the breed, just like with any other dog.


To respond with my own unpopular opinion, I'll say it like I said it before; pizza is better eaten using a fork.

The huge difference between a pit bull and any other dog is that a pit bull’s jaw force is ridiculously strong for its size. Once they lock on they won’t let go and it’s diffuclt to unlock their jaw without having to actually break it. There’s a reason why pit bulls can’t be police dogs (because they won’t let go).I guess you could say they are the crocodiles of the dog world. Beautiful and unique breed but also very dangerous. Glad I escaped.

Also with the pizza......a fork? I’ve never seen that actually.

I think Nutella is gross.
Fursuit hands and feet are ridiculously oversized
Socks and Sandals are fine


I think we have a pitbull, I don't know if hes half pit, half something else. But he was actually a stray that we found on the street. Hes the sweetest dog there's ever been. All he does is lick, hes got a silly underbite and hes even very gentle when being handed treats. Hes a strong dog, but hes also a huge wuss.

I could eat an entire jar of Nutella with a spoon. I agree with the fursuits. The hands and feet are huge. I never understood what was wrong with socks and sandles. You can be warm and comfortable.

Not a full American Pit Bull (I can tell) so there isn’t anything to worry about. He looks innocent XD

My (harsh) unpopular opinions.
Non-handheld consoles like Xbox and Playstation are just a scam on idiots who fall for easy pre-order crap / "console exclusive".
People in games development have no idea what they're doing anymore and have a horrible mindset of "better graphics = best game." and so do the consumers who fall for that.
Anyone who says stuff like "omg EA is so bad with lootboxes" but then go support EA games shouldn't be allowed an opinion on games anymore.

I don't know if I'm sad about this, or at a somewhat eerie peace.

I’m not sad. I’ll be dead long before that day comes. Though it would suck for the people it does happen to. Imagine being a young kid with a whole life ahead, and the world ends.

Looks like I’ve got the most likes so far with that one.

Perhaps it’s not as unpopular of a view as I thought!

As spicy cheeto says, this isn't a pit bull. It looks most like a Jack Russell. Did the vet not tell you when you had him checked?

Family pet. But he is certainly not a Jack Russel. But if you mixed a Jack Russell and a Pit Bull, that would look a lot like him.
You said he is a stray that you found on the street?

Please get your dog checked at a vet. They will check his body for an identity chip so that they can confirm that he doesn't belong to a family that misses him, and they'll be able to check he has all of the shots he needs.

(It's also possible that his previous owners abandoned him on purpose and that criminal proceedings need to be brought against them.)

I kinda see your point, but I don't get how it relates to non-handheld consoles - they aren't exactly known for "better graphics" anyway (that's PC market), and there's a crapton of "easy pre-order crap" all across gaming spectrum from smartphones and handhelds to home consoles and PCs. How console exclusives are scam is also alien to me - a lot of them are genuinely good after all

My unpopular opinion: Furry fandom is and always was closely connected to eroticism, and while there is a strong SFW following, furries should stop being so ashamed of fandom's "lewdy" parts and use the whole "not all furries" defense that was repeated time and time again to the point of becoming a cliche. Erotic themes were discussed and explored back when fandom was born, and most of the profitable and popular content creators within the community dabble in NSFW drawings/writings/etc. to some extent or another.

If anything, furry fandom being so open-minded towards people of all genders, kinks and sexual orientations should be considered its positive trait rather than something to debunk and feel guilty about - while there's a prominent problem with minors slipping in or some people making buttholes of themselves, for the most part it's still a friendly and inclusive community where everyone can open up and find some friends.

An additional unpopular opinion (related to stuff above) is that while I mostly respect Uncle Kage as a person, I think he does more harm than good as a "furry spokesperson" for the very reasons of being unnecessarily overprotective of fandom's image and trying to shoehorn particular ideas about it against other member's opinions; the fact that he's mostly talking about fursuiters and con-goers, who are already a huge source of furry fandom being misinterpreted by the media as "exclusively a bunch of weirdos doing dumb shit in animal suits", doesn't help in the slightest.

My Unpopular Opinons:

-In a system where full employment can't be guaranteed, peoples base of life shouldn't depend on having a job or not.
-Religious morals shouldn't be me made a foundation for laws.
-There aren't different races of Humans, just phenotypes that differ in appearance or cultural socialisation.
-Gender roles are just a construct of society that are subject to constant change over the course of history.
-Stem cell research should be allowed and founded by the government when it helps to end the menace of cancer, HIV and other major diseases, plaguing mankind.
-There is nothing like a natural hierarchy. No man or women is betten then any other. A King isn't better then a peasant. And even a God isn't greater then the smallest frection of it's creation.
-Sice every act of observation changes the properties of the observed subject, there never will be any real knowledge, just educated guesses forming our reality through common premisses.
