I dont know why, but Taylor Swifts sudden ´´wokeness´´ and gay rights activist/support/feminism seems so fake and staged to me, and I do not think she would have ever done/been vocal about gay rights had it not been 2019. Honestly major respect for actors/singers who did speak up at a time when they could risk losing their career over it. Swift´s attempt however, IDK it just doesnt feel genuine to me. 

 

Typical virtue signaling. She acts like gays are brainless and can't notice that. My gay friend doesn't give a shit when companies change their logos to pride flags. 

Also the whole trend of including drag queens in music videos, they can be entertaining but a ton of people find them annoying. Hyperfeminized men dressed as women being very loud, big deal.

I don't think singers in US risk loosing their career when speaking out, it looks like it's became a standard and the easiest way to say something woke but safe, as well as saying that you're a feminist. She in an interview with Vogue, I think, acted shocked and started apologizing how she never put herself in their shoes, okay sis? Try going to Eastern Europe and preach about gay rights or worse places like Middle East, India and etc, that actually requires courage and is controversial. I honestly think that gays are alright in America.

Ok, here are a couple... 

Purebreds = Inbreds

Pits and other bull terriers ARE genetically predisposed to being aggressive. Saying otherwise is like telling me that Labradors don't retrieve, Huskies don't run for miles and miles, Pointers don't point, Border Collies don't herd, Bloodhounds don't track scents, etc. Yes, ONE factor is the dog's owner/upbringing, another is its genetic predispositions. I wish more pet owners understand the animal they're dealing with instead of treating their pit like a little pamper poodle that could do no wrong and needs no supervision.

I see some people say online, "why isn't spongebob canceled already?". I honestly feel like if the show was canceled Nickelodeon would die. With the dan situation and that unikitty rip off, spongebob is their only good show tbh. That's why they keep milking it and unfortunately, they'll probably keep milking it until it ends up like fairly odd parents. The only good thing they got left is nostalgia.

 

 

You are 100% right. There would be no Nickelodeon without Spongebob. Considering Nickelodeon's new shows are horse shit, Spongebob is it's life support. 

Also there just will never ever be a show like Spongebob. Copycats yeah, but nothing will ever be able to replace it. Nick knows this too which is probably why they still made episodes after the first movie despite Stephen Hillenburg wanting the show to end with the movie.

Honestly, it feels like something she does just because the company boss told her to do it. Before late 2018 she never talked about politics and there was always a bunch of journos and other people who were criticizing her because "why doesn't Taylor Swift voice her support for this or take a stand against that?"

- Just because a green party exist, doesn't mean that they are great just because they "care" about the enviroment.

In my country in the 80s and even years after that they tried to legalise adults to have sex with children and those men who wanted it are still part of the green party and low-key still want it to happen. While the public was against it, the feminists actually protested so much and ended up in prison, while those pedophiles get a lot of money through being a politican until today. The world is unfair and alone this example shows that we need feminist even in western countries because sometimes things can go worse. A lot of people forgot or didn't even know that the green party wanted that to happen and are blended by their name and the fact that the climate change happens and they hope the party will stop it

Voting should not be allowed, if you don't even know the program of at least the mainstream parties. I don't want anyone voting for a horrible party just because they legalise drugs etc. or their name sounds good. That system right now is just like saying to a toddler vote for a party and we will accept it because we are a democracy

Leftists praising democratic socialism like it's the best thing ever and bashing on capitalism which made their countries first world in first place and remained stable since the renaissance.

Capitalism is exploitative but we as individuals can't allow ourselves to fall into the trap. There are many other jobs available besides factories. 

My country is democratic socialist after being socialist (*cough cough* communistic) and we're used as a cheap labor by Italians and Germans for their companies. People (everyone , not just factory workers) earn on average 400$ a month and often the uneducated travel in the west to work as babysitters, janitors, in factories, as maids, etc. That doesn't really sound  like utopia, does it.

Fun fact: Often these people then come back few times a year and build a huge house they don't use, and bash my country like it's a shit hole and act like they're lawyers or something there. Tragic.

Edit: Grammar mistakes, I was really hungry lmao

Believe me when I say that these companies get bashed a lot for moving their company to the east and make people jobless through it, but they do it anyway. Before the minimum wage some companies here sometimes even paid their workers 2€ at a time, where you needed at least 7€ to survive while working a 30-40 hours week. Especially in one city here in my country there are people, who work 40 hours a week and are homeless. I wish the government would be more active and at least prevent this. Communism and capitalism both suck a lot. A social economy like it existed in Germany around 1950 to 1970 would be the best for everyone. Workers and companies would have to share the power and the government would act as a watchdog to make sure nobody breaks any rules

I don't support that labor, I watched a documentary where women work for Zara and more. It's heartbreaking and similar happend here in late 90s for a German company, my mom worked there making sure everyone was working hard. I wish it was actually illegal and these companies had a chance to go bankrupt if they break the rules, but they're too powerful. Idk, Lenin said himself that socialism leads to communism. That's why I go to university, to avoid working in factories. I think that people should chose any job to avoid working there. I know a few women from villages who have only graduated primary school, they work as maids, babysitters and cooks at the same time and their wage is almost the average. They are exhausted by the end of the day but they claim that they enjoy it.

Personally I dont like drag queens cause...it looks like they are mocking women to me.

-Social media has definitely given people a sense of entitlement, especially young teenagers. The cancle culture thing being a prime example, it makes them think what they say matters when 99% of the time it doesn't. 

People are just so in to themselves and how they perceive things that they want to take down everything they disagree with. In reality, its not bc its offensive or problematic, its about control.

-stop complaining about white knights in threads, if you see people trying to white knight and downvote you to heck report it to one of the mods. We have more mods now so it shouldn't be an issue.

-^ That said, stop projecting yourselves into snowflakes as a way to excuse their actions and white knight them. Pull is not a hug box, no one cares if you like that snowflake either. If they're problematic they will be discussed. Unless its clearly a bunch of bullying and vendetta posting going on...report it. Its that simple.

My unpopular opinions:

-Teen Titans Go! has some good episodes

-Arcade is the weakest Eurovision winning song in a while

-Senorita is overrated and is Havana 2.0.

-Slayyyter, Ayesha Erotica and ILIRA deserves more recognition.

-C-Pop and J-Pop are underrated.

-Big Brother and Survivor been going downhill.

-The Drag Race All Stars 4 crowning should've been a single crowning.

-Just Dance 2019 had too much filler songs.

-Ariana Grande's newer songs sound more rushed.

-Lover was mediocre.
