    Oh, and Nicki Minaj.
    Nicki Minaj and Maroon 5 are no where near as bad as Bruno Mars. His voice just makes me want to punch him he sounds so obnoxious-whiny and flat.

    Allow me to add to my list:

    - I think things like gluten-free fads are perpetuating allergies and ignorance.
    - I think parents ought to be held by courts for child endangerment when they deny their child treatment for a cancer with a 95% cure rate because they don't understand how modern medicine works and hate the idea of it.
    - I think hippies are a necessary evil, and hipsters (adult hipsters.. teenage hipsters are cool, they're far more tolerable than hoodrats) can go die in a fire because hipsterism is centered in selfishness and self righteousness.

    Cartoon characters should age with time. This nonsense about them never getting old is too confusing for the minds of impressionable children.

    TV is generally a huge waste of time, more emphasis really should be placed on reading. Maybe have shows-kids shows especially as it would probably be the easiest sell-advertise books occasionally instead of just straight up toys. Invest in reading somehow, might initially not work out, but maybe eventually.

    Flat taxes.

    Man, it's hard to think of these.

    Let's see...

    - As body-positive as I try to be, I do not believe even remotely that "all bodies are beautiful" -- saying that is an attempt to remove all standards of beauty from society, and that makes little to no sense to me.

    - I don't like opera, and I think Broadway-style singing is overrated. I also hate the fact that there are only one or two styles of singing that people are taught in school, as if all other styles are "wrong" or "bad". Most of the time I think those styles of singing are hackneyed and boring.

    - I think we should remove "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance and restore it to Francis Bellamy's original text.

    - High heels are objectively awful for your feet and legs, and people need to stop wearing them.

    People who are intolerant of millenials. I'm not sure that the other generations really have any right to judge.

    In truth what makes a view controversial anymore? I think its nye on impossible to actually have a controversial view, what once would have been controversial is now the mainstream, and I think that in large, large part is to do with the complete and utter exhaustion of the mainstream and promotion in its place instead of what was once niche, fringe and novel instead.

    This isnt a controversial view itself BTW, I'm pretty sure its just a view.

    I thought the idea was that all bodies can be beautiful, not that everyone has to find them to be such, in order to recognize that no single standard should be viewed as the only conceivable/acceptable one.

    Yes, people can be attractive in many different ways.

    YUP. Unfortunately, this renders me mostly completely silent on all body-image related issues. I've never found a way to articulate it without upsetting people, or making myself come across wrong. I also often get upset with these people because it seems like their goal is to erase standards all together, which REALLY ticks me off. Standards are a necessity. Just because you don't like the concept of standards, doesn't mean they need to go away.

    YES! I actually actively dislike that kind of theatrical style of singing that so many people like. It actually makes me feel uncomfortable and uneasy. It feels too loud and dramatic to the point of annoying. Though I can appreciate opera, I don't go out of my way to listen to it.

    Omg yes. I don't understand why people are so against removing it. It was artifically added.

    I think they can look nice, so I don't have much of an opinion on it. I thought high heels were funny when I was a child. My mom had a pair of ruby red heels when I was a kid that she stopped wearing when the early 90's fashion trend of bright colors faded. I'd play with them occasionally. She got mad when I tried to run down the stairs in them and busted the heel...
