My Unpopular Opinions
Turns out unpopular opinions posts are in fact very popular! If you’re on Twitter (shameless plug: follow me here) you may be sick of seeing so many by now but I really love reading these types of blog posts and have finally decided to do one of my own.
Summer is the worst season
Summer is a pretty miserable time of the year for me and I dread it every year! I’m much more comfortable and happier in autumn and winter. There are many reasons why I think summer is the worst season which includes:
- Unbearable heat. This is especially bad at night when it’s too hot to sleep!
- Being blinded by the sun whenever you step outside or catch a reflection. (Yes I have sunglasses but hate how they look on me).
- Having to slather yourself in sticky sun-cream every hour.
- Having to find summer clothes. As someone who is extremely self-conscious of their body finding clothes is a nightmare.
- The sun naturally waking you up at 6am.
Honestly, what is there to like?! I’d love to be able to hibernate during the summer months.
White chocolate is amazing
It makes me sad that so many people hate on white chocolate. It’s delicious and I could happily eat it all day every day!
Beyoncé is overrated
I. DO. NOT. UNDERSTAND. THE. HYPE. Yes, she can sing although her music is really not to my taste, yes, she can dance and yes, she’s attractive…like so many others on this earth! I don’t understand why she is hailed as an absolute queen. While she undeniably has talent there are people who are far more talented and far more likeable. She always seems very cold and distant, she doesn’t have much of a personality (that she shows to the public anyway) so I just don’t get what there is to idolise about her. I find her very dull and it baffles me that people still deem her and Jay Z as ‘couple goals’ even after he cheated on her, just no.
Cats are better than dogs
I’m sorry to all you dog lovers out there (please don’t unsubscribe) but cats are superior! I’ve had cats my entire life and couldn’t imagine a life without them. I’m not saying I don’t like dogs, I do think some of them are cute and funny, but every single cat I see will always make me go ‘awwwwwwwwww!’ They are beautiful, majestic creatures with such big personalities and they’re so so cute. I love it when they stretch so much their little legs shake, I love their jelly bean paws, I love their little sneezes and their big yawns and I love how they’re totally calm one minute and then racing around the house like a lunatic the next. Cats are also much more low maintenance than dogs and they don’t jump up and slobber all over you. I couldn’t handle that haha. I will definitely always be a cat lady.
We need to cancel ‘cancel culture’
I’m not sure if this is really an ‘unpopular’ opinion but I’m still seeing so many people participating in ‘cancel culture’ and it really makes my blood boil.
I hate to break it to you but everyone makes mistakes. Celebrities make mistakes. Influencers make mistakes. Politicians make mistakes. I make mistakes. Even you make mistakes! It’s human nature and ‘cancelling’ someone just because of a mistake they made recently or in the past is stupid. If we didn’t make mistakes we wouldn’t learn, grow or evolve.
This also applies to throwing out accusations without knowing all the facts or having solid evidence, Johnny Depp is a perfect example of this. Everyone ‘cancelled’ him and said horrific things to him for years, yet he was innocent. As much as people may think they know everything about a situation they don’t! So calm down with the whole ‘cancel culture’ and don’t be so quick to jump on the hateful bandwagon.
How many of the above do you agree or disagree with?
