    You're complaining about episode 4, which is basically never mentioned again, and even the writers themselves acknowledge how terrible it was during the last episode before the finale.

    @Redstar45 Yeah, well, the whole "Kill the Fire Lord" thing also bothered the hero to the point he actively refused to do it.

    They could have foreshadowed it better, but it's clear that killing Ozai probably wouldn't have actually solved anything.

    The Last Jedi isn't as bad as everyone says it is.

    The Comics Code Authority killed the comics industry, not the 90s. The CCA effectively killed off multiple genres in comics. Ever since their establishment, based on research as sold as anti-vaccine science mind you, the comics industry is an RBMK reactor ready to melt down, which it did in the 90s. This design flaw needed the right fools to nearly blow it all up.

    Stereotypes are just another archetype; however, this is not a free pass to just have that be a character's one trait, especially if it is the title character. Develop your characters better.

    If you want my opinions on the "controversies" surrounding changing races of characters in adaptations:
    • If it's a musical, I don't care about the race. I want to listen to the soundtrack and I really don't give a crap about the race of the singer, just the voice.
    • If you changed the context of the original, try to explain it rather than be lazy about it.
    • Unless you're doing a foreign remake like Seven Samurai being turned into Magnificent Seven, please refrain from changing the races of works with great cultural significance. I expect the Kalevala to feature Finnish as much as I expect the Ballad of Mulan to feature Chinese actors or the Epic of Sundiata to feature West African actors.
    • The exception to the above are mythological beings. Gods, demons, monsters, and more are all exceptions.
    • The exception to the exception is in the case of major cultural significance in the real world in mythology. In Shintoism, the Goddess of the Sun, Amaterasu, was the ancestor of the Imperial Japanese Family.
    • If you play really, really loose with adaptations (Japanese Spider-Man), I really don't know what to say.

    I hate almost every thing that is plaid. The only exceptions are if you are from the UK, kilts, flannel shirts, and school uniform skirts depending on the colors. Everything else plaid is just hideous. I can’t stand plaid shorts and pants and every single time I see them along with plaid coats, I just want to set them on fire! It’s just an ugly print for pants and coats.

    No. I’m fine with kilts. If you wear plaid and it’s part of your heritage then I’m okay with that. It’s plaid jackets and pants that I hate the most. Plaid pants are just so ugly!

    Recently co workers of mine got into a debate over another one of my coworkers saying a certain word (he's Asian) and not being black and I fully agree with what was said.

    So here goes my unpopular opinion: I think if you're not black you should not be saying the N word.
     
  9. That's unpopular?

    On the Internet? Probably not but his argument was basically that black people use it all the time and as long as he isn't using the hard "er" there isn't a problem. I think a lot of people are aware why non black people should say it but in real life it's a different game. To others it's a term they just call their friends and they don't racialize it.

    I think n word should be removed from the world long time ago

    I understand why it's not; it reclaiming a word that was used for hatred and now used for endearment (towards each other).

    Don't know how many unpopular opinions I have, but here goes.

    Overrated is an overused term. Something can be well liked because it's good and makes people happy.
    I hate the customary system. Even in America, I think it just makes things more annoying.
    I have my own favorite Youtubers, but I hate how Youtubers opinions are treated as more superior to other people's opinions.
    "Genwunners" are fine when they don't endlessly complain on the Internet. I have a friend who only likes the first Gen of Pokemon.
    I hate how people act like that America is the best country bar none. We really need to fix our problems.
    -That isn't to say there aren't things that are good about America. I appreciate the diversity of people and cultures.
    Islamophobia gets into racism territory. If someone looks and talks like a Muslim, then they will probably still be discriminated against.
    Global warming is an extensional threat and should be a big priority with America and the World.
    People need to stop saying that they could beat Ash in a Pokemon battle. The show is meant for kids as sort of a introduction to Pokemon.
    -It's not like Ash EV trains his Pokemon, or selects good natures or IVs.
    Not everyone needs to be into science, but if you make a argument about science, then you need to back it up with science.
    I can't stand the extreme polar sides of the religious spectrum. You can be very religious or an atheist, but don't be rude.
    Certain video games get way too much hate. I would vouch that Paper Mario: Color Splash was actually a good game.
    I hate the idea that wearing something skimpy makes someone look more attractive.

    I'm sure some of these aren't necessarily unpopular, but I thought I would spitball these.

    For context, we were in a debate today for our modern issues class and the topics were if you should be required to give respect to people like the President or the army simply because they have power & should kneeling during the anthem be a crime.


    I don’t think you should be expected to give respect to someone based on their age or position. Getting respect by intimidation or some superiority complex isn’t actual respect.

    For the second, I think this is the most absurd thing to get upset over.

    While we've talked religious fanatics and their idiocy (anti-vax) until we've blue in the facr, I can't stand how New Atheists like to peddle how they're superior and rational since they use science to prove their conclusions. It's gotten to a point where my boss, the bio-stats and experiment design professor, has us spend time on teaching stats to the freshmen and how science only rejects explanations. Science doesn't prove anything because it's observer dependent. You would need a perfect observer to say you proved anything.

    I will never understand America's love of standardized testing. It's an archaic model which seeks to inhibit learning rather than foster it.

    The idea of science is that you prove something "within a shadow of doubt". You can prove something to be 99.999% true, but it can never be fully 100%.

    There's a reason there are so many "95%" arguments.

    When it comes to stats, it's less proof and more rejecting the null. I understand it's the same thing with different words, but my God, some students are freaking arrogant when they refuse to do the error analysis sections of a lab report.

    Agreed. I feel like nationalism has been to ingrained in America anyone who isn’t one “disrespects America”. As far as respect goes; it’s something earned not a given.
