Vote on My Worst Opinions

Hi! My name is Abby, and I have some bad opinions. Most of them are related to food, but I have some other ones as well. The thing is, I know these opinions are bad and unpopular. My only defense is self-awareness.

So now I’m going to let you vote on my worst opinions. If you think an opinion is bad, or you disagree with it, downvote it. If you think for some reason an opinion is justified or correct, upvote it.

#1 “Love, Actually” is trash

First of all, the movie tells the stories of multiple people using pastiches. I hate the pastiche trope. Instead of devoting a full runtime to fully developing one story, it splits this time between a handful of stories so none of them are compelling or fleshed out. Secondly, “Love, Actually” is full of stereotypes, toxic behavior, and fat-shaming. None of that is endearing or cute. Rick Grimes showing up at a married woman’s house to declare his love for her is not a cute display of hopeless romanticism — it’s manipulative and inappropriate. 

#2 Jeans are comfortable

I know everyone is rejoicing that they no longer have to wear jeans during quarantine, but I miss them. They’re made of cotton, they don’t make you too warm or too cold, and they look good on everyone. Especially with the baggier mom jean in style, it’s so easy to be comfortable in jeans. I don’t care, catch me in jeans even if I’m alone in my house all day and no one sees me. 

#3 Blondes are overrated

Listen, I’m in college and I’m tired of seeing sororities exclusively composed of homogenous blonde girls and one token WOC. And if I see one more college boy’s Tinder profile that says he’s only looking for blondes, I’ll have to report them to the council of “where’s the flavor?” I don’t have anything against individual blondes. But they’ve had their moment in the sun. It’s high time for the brunette/redhead uprising. 

#5 Coconut Water > juice/coffee/tea/anything else

All of the opinions thus far have been negative, so I thought I’d switch it up. Coconut water is the best drink alternative to water. I don’t care that most people think it tastes vile — it’s good!! It’s sweet and super refreshing and feels like a vacation in a bottle. Coffee is bitter and gives me a stomach ache, tea is always either too hot or too cold, juice is too sweet and overpowers other flavors, and other drinks (Gatorade?? gross) just don’t measure up.
