A lot of people think that free speech has gone out the window, that cancel culture is rearing its big ugly head and scaring folk into speaking their mind. Ever heard of the spiral of silence? People will only voice their opinions if they think that other people may share the same views. Then people end up staying silent on a lot of other opinions they may hold, and poof, who knows if anybody actually agrees on anything anymore? What if everyone is holding back the same opinion? It’s exhausting just to think about.
I have definitely felt the pressure to zip my mouth, as I don’t exactly want everyone to roast me. Thankfully, r/unpopuaropinions exists, a safe-ish space where we can speak our minds. We’ll still get some backlash, but that’s kind of the point of the subreddit. Below you’ll find a compilation of some pretty unpopular opinions. Or maybe they’re less unpopular than they originally thought, seeing as some of them had a lot of upvotes. Scroll down and be the judge.
