What is your truly offensive opinion?

Asked by jaytkay (25767points) September 12th, 2010

Probably we all have an opinion or two which we keep to ourselves, because we know it offends our friends and family.

What is yours?

For starters, of course, I have to give one. So…

I think religion is childish superstition.

For a long time, after 9/11, I had racist feelings towards Muslims. It took me a while to realise that the terrorists were the minority and not the majority of the Muslim community.

There are other reasons for the decline in moral and family values, the sharp rise in divorce rates, and the increase in juvenile delinquecy, but feminism and liberalism have had primary roles in their genesis and perpetuation.

I am of the opinion that women are worse drivers than men.

Okay ladies, you can start hating now.

poisonedantidote's avatar

mine contains a few different elements, but i see them as part of the same overal philisophy.

1— we place too much value on the lives of individuals and the life in general.

2— we don’t need less violence in the world, we need the violence there is to be more organized and carried out in cold blood for more logical reasons.

3— we save far too many lives.

Ben_Dover's avatar

@Bluefreedom And Oriental drivers are worse than women drivers.

apologies to Mr Shiny Shoes

That pedophiles should be castrated or executed.

Bluefreedom's avatar

@Ben_Dover. I agree with that. I was stationed in South Korea for 18 months and the drivers there are frightening.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

(I forgot the humor mark) I have the opinion most women are lousy drivers and even worse passengers. You’d probably be surprised that my s/o thinks I drive like a maniac.

Ron_C's avatar

@faye good one, I forgot about that.

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Do you think many men are stupid too, or just women?

Michael_Huntington's avatar

@Ben_Dover @Bluefreedom
I also agree. When I was at Beijing, I was afraid that our driver would either crash or run over someone. Also, this is an Asian person speaking

Ben_Dover's avatar

That gay should have remained a word meaning happy, and not been used to label homosexuals.

TexasDude's avatar

Rapists should be shot upon conviction, or better yet, whacked with a shovel, because ammo ain’t cheap anymore. Several of my close female friends have been raped and I have zero fucking tolerance for anyone who would do that to someone under any circumstances.

I also have a tendency to believe that most people in my age range are morons, overly naive, useless, and their poetry sucks.

If you’re against same-sex marriage, it’s going to take a damn good argument to convince me that you are not homophobic prejudiced.

I don’t think any of my opinions are offensive. This is the closest I could come up with.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Re: The Oriental drivers. I went to college with a South Korean student. He would drive while he turned around to talk to the passengers in the back seat and not just for a second. lol at that memory.

troubleinharlem's avatar

@muppetish : wait… so, if someone doesn’t agree with same-sex marriage, it makes them homophobic now? because I’m not afraid of gay people… I think they’re nice.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@papayalily Been sitting here trying to figure this out – Generally speaking, I connect better (on an intellectual level) with people that identify as men – I understand that, because of socialization, men are encouraged to, at the very least, pursue some knowledge..sadly, because many girls are encouraged to instead spend countless hours on mani/pedis, shopping, make up and wondering about men…I can’t connect at all to the vapidity…I think many girls hide their intelligence and I’ve got no time to waste on people like that… No, men can be just as stupid but generally I get angrier when girls are acting in a stupid way because, given that there is no equality between the sexes, they’re doing more in the long run to hurt themselves than men who act in a stupid way.

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir Wow, that was a really well thought-out clarification…

tinyfaery's avatar

We all deserve to die in a bomb blast or other act of terrorism for our continued participation in the cultural institutions and practices that contribute to the suffering of other people, animals and the destruction of our planet; myself included.

I thought we weren’t supposed to criticize. I have no interest in defending my “offensive” opinion.

muppetish's avatar

@troubleinharlem I admit using the term “homophobia” was a bit misleading. Not necessarily in fear of, but prejudice without justifiable reason.

troubleinharlem's avatar

@tinyfaery : I just wanted clarification… sorry if it sounded like accusation or something.

@muppetish: gotcha. that makes more sense. (:

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I have the opinion rapist and pedophiles, if convicted I guess, should be taken into a building. have their penis nailed to the wall, handed a knife and then set the building on fire. And, all the doors are locked without their knowledge so they can’t escape anyway.

TexasDude's avatar

@papayalily, I’m 20. Most people that I know between the ages of 18 and 25 are incredibly stupid and don’t seem to have a clue how the real world actually works.

Some other “offensive” opinions of mine are that Harry Potter is boring, the Beatles sucked, most little kids are neurotic pussies because of obsessive helicopter parents, and that Che Guevara and Chairman Mao do not belong on t-shirts.

Ben_Dover's avatar

Many queer people are closet heterophobiacs.

TexasDude's avatar

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Do you mind if I ask for an example of how the real world works that kids don’t get?

chyna's avatar

People that are cruel to animals need to be handed a jail sentence, and not just a slap on the wrist and a fine. At least 5 years.

TexasDude's avatar

@papayalily, as an example, my history professor recently asked my class what the primary purpose of banks are. Everyone had a look of pure confusion on their face. I raised my hand and said that, aside from provide securing storage for savings, banks provide investment capital in the form of loans to help people start and run businesses, or to help people acquire things they couldn’t otherwise afford. Two kids didn’t know what mortgages are, two others thought that the government gives you money when you fill out a “business application” whatever in the hell that is, and the rest looked completely dumbfounded. I have more examples, if that isn’t sufficient.

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

That tuna fish salad should be made with mustard instead of mayonnaise. I’ve gotten more abuse from people about that than any other belief that I strongly support.

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard None needed, that was a great example.

MyNewtBoobs's avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer I’ve never tried that. What mustard? Any other ingredients I should make sure to include?

TexasDude's avatar

@papayalily, alright then, I’ve met people my age who didn’t know we were attacked at Pearl Harbor, who thought that 9/11 was an industrial accident, who thought that cash registers are illegal to own, and who “didn’t understand why Hitler was so mean to the Jews.” I know these are more like examples of crude ignorance, as opposed to ignorance of “how the world works” as I said, but I think they fit in the same category.

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard Oh, wow, so you go to school with my step-sisters. Awesome.

poisonedantidote's avatar

@troubleinharlem

I should really write a well thought out paper on this, because by just typing it out now I’ll probably end up digging my self a hole. but yea, it’s basically the idea that death is not the worse thing that can happen to you, That some times we should favor our own death or the death of others over the alternatives.

For example, if a prisoner has tried to kill him self 3 or 4 times, it would probably be better just to let him rather than waste money on putting him on 24 hour suicide watch. specially if his crimes are of a certain nature.

Another example, I don’t think there would be anything wrong with sending explorers to mars or some other planet knowing fully well that they are not coming back. (personally I’d jump at the chance)

It’s quite a complex issue, with a lot of grey areas. it touches on things like euthanasia, the death penalty, and other topics. to a certain extent, I see the unconditional protection of peoples right to live as kind of selfish.

I could say a lot more, and it would probably touch on almost every aspect of day to day life, but it was hard enough to type what I have typed so far, so will refrain from typing any more until a later date when I have had time to give it all more thought. at the moment this is still what I would call a “hmmm” philosophy, as opposed to a mature philosophy that can be expressed verbaly. a lot of the ideas surrounding it only exist as wordless thoughts in my mind, I still need to spend time on finding the words.

EDIT: a side thought…

- A human being is a small insignifican thing, they are all more or less the same, not too smart, and they only live about 100 years anyway. the human race however is everything, it is unique, clever, and has the potential to last forever.

SuperMouse's avatar

I admit it, I tend to agree with @Mamradpivo, in thinking the vast majority of people are just not very bright – or at least are severely lacking in common sense. But I am a cynic at heart so I tend to dislike most people. Also, while I think animals are cute and cuddly and all, I am perfectly content not to have any myself. Yes, yes I do own Jack the Pug, but he is the kids’ dog more than he is mine.

Men have affairs because they get sick of the same woman all the time. They enjoy it but act like they’re suffering.
Most people who have pets have them to make up for the lack of affection in their relationship.

DominicX's avatar

I mentioned it in the “25 Things”, but that just because something is “spiritual” and “personal” doesn’t mean it’s immune to criticism. Your “spiritual” beliefs can be stupid. If it completely clashes with scientific principles, don’t expect me to have all that much “respect” for it. I’m not going to bug you about it, but I don’t just respect everything just because they’re your “feelings”.

On that note, I think astrology, auras, the paranormal, and most alternative medicine is complete bullshit and for people who claim it’s real, it’s all in their head and they’re trying to make more out of something that isn’t.

I also don’t care if people have a non-procreative incestuous relationship between consenting adults. It’s not my business.

That enough straight people are homophobic deep down that it has caused me to believe most of them are and that it is somewhat of a natural position to have. I hate to be so cynical, but there you have it.

That being depressed is not an excuse for being a complete asshole. On that note, we overmedicate and overdiagnose mental illnesses including bipolar disorder and autism.

TexasDude's avatar

@Ron_C, I’ve listened to the Beatles a lot. I’ve been a musician for several years and the Beatles have never once given me a musical boner. In fact, I have always found them to be really bland. They must have done something right to acquire a bajillion fans, but in my mind, they are just a goofy band that did a lot of drugs and wrote a few “ok” songs, but nothing God-tier.

ragingloli's avatar

America is the 21st century Rome. A malicious empire striving for global haegemony, that bears a lot of responsibility for many of the world’s problems.
They have no idea how to make good food, cars, or real sport.
It is the only country that transitioned from barberism directly to decadence without civilisation in between.
It was also founded by traitors, that committed High Treason against the British Crown.
They have butchered the English language.

troubleinharlem's avatar

@ragingloli : I thought that was Australia that was founded by traitors…

Ron_C's avatar

@troubleinharlem Australia was populated by criminals and traitors that got caught. The U.S. was founded by people like the Puritans. Frankly I’d trade Australia. They ended up with a free country, we got the Puritan ethic and very strange laws restricting, sex, drugs, and work.

@troubleinharlem Australia was a dumping ground for UK criminals. Not necessarily traitors. Traiitors are more like the US Confederates. Which leads into my next offensive opinion…

HungryGuy's avatar

I believe that all people should be equal under the law and be able to live and interact however they choose to that is mutually consensual. However, I’ve recently discovered that this opinion is highly offensive to a subset of very vocal and militant people, and I’ve been called hateful and ignorant here on Fluther for expressing it.

Brian1946's avatar

If some jerk parks in front of my driveway, I should get to keep their car and do whatever the fuck I want with it!

TexasDude's avatar

@Michael_Huntington, sortof. I was required to take an intro to sociology class as part of the liberal arts aspect of my college. The entire class was basically a circle-jerk over Karl Marx. The professor flat out told me I should be ashamed of myself for being white. It’s odd, because one of my good friends, who is also president of the Black Student’s Association, was also in the class, and he told her she was being ridiculous. She looked completely dumbfounded.

@jaytkay, you do know that there is a loophole to that statement that could potentially cause this whole thing to turn into an exchange of thinly-veiled personal attacks. For instance, I could say that I hold the offensive opinions that people who constantly bash America are either giant hypocrites for ignoring or downplaying centuries of European and Asian tyranny, or are just following a hip trend. Or, I could say that anyone who judges an entire group of people based on the region they live in, the government they live under, the actions of their ancestors, or the way they talk or look is woefully ignorant, short-sighted, closed-minded, and outright rude.

Okay… I’ll stop now before I get in trouble or cause a giant clusterfuck to arise.

There is no such thing as a mistake. There’s negligence and things of that nature, but no mistakes.
Penises smaller than seven inches are unattractive.
Doing certain things, acting a certain way, believing certain things, etc. simply because that’s all you know or that’s how you were raised is no excuse.
Prescription drugs are pushed by people who want to make money off of them. They are not good for you. They cause more harm than good. Most health issues can be resolved/avoided with a healthy lifestyle.

Capital punishment should be used all over the world and more often. No lethal injections or electric chairs, something even more torturous!

really someone moderated my post?

thekoukoureport's avatar

hey @manradpivo I like to use fluffy bunnies as fuck toys… too much?

thekoukoureport's avatar

how does a question that ask to offend get moderated. Should we just offend but not too bad? I don’t understand.

free_fallin's avatar

I spend my days believing in the goodness of humanity and teaching others to see it as well. None of you offended me. I find most of what was said to be pathetic. Isn’t there enough around us that is offensive? Some of you are just being offensive for the sake of being offensive and that may very well be the most pathetic thing I have ever seen on this site.

I don’t have an offensive opinion though perhaps to most of you my opinion that there is more good in people and the world than you seem to see might be considered offensive to the most cynical people. Freedom of Speech is a bitch and a privilege. Don’t mistake hatred for honesty.

@judochop I wish I could give you a thousand GA’s.

Hey @thekoukoureport Good for you. Fluffy bunnies are great. I would worry about the lint, but that’s just me.

Gods were invented to explain the unexplainable. They have no place in the 21st century.
We need another epidemic. We’re way too fucking overpopulated.
Certain specific people should be banned from procreating. Their genes shouldn’t be spread on through another generation.
Our effort to keep every last human alive, regardless of their quality of life, is a gross waste of resources.
High heels are ugly.
The “America is #1” crowd clearly has not seen the rest of the world.

@Sarcasm – You’re my kind of guy. I concur with each of your statements.

thekoukoureport's avatar

I would like to agree with Sarcasm but I may make his list. Still almost offensive.

thekoukoureport's avatar

hey @free_fallin I wanna gro up to be just like you. Lighten up sunshine this is SUPPOSED to offend. But I guess on your high altar you don’t get the jist of the string.

Arp's avatar

@Sarcasm I wouldn’t limit it at “certain people”. Human’s have caused way too much death and destruction, the earth would be much better off without them. Yep.

DominicX's avatar

Misanthropes are probably my least favorite type of people. Misanthropy in itself is obnoxious and often contradictory. Angsty immature worldview to have.

free_fallin's avatar

@thekoukoureport I understood the point of the question even from my higher viewing. I just chose to express a different opinion.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

That breeding isn’t a right so much as an immediate responsibility. The rest of society shouldn’t have to pay for other people’s kids’ upbringings aside from emergency situations. Social welfare as an entitlement makes me feel taken advantage of.

Jeruba's avatar

I beg your pardon, @jaytkay. I misunderstood the intent of the question. I thought it was to give voice to private opinions that others might find offensive and not to deliberately insult one another. I have no desire to offer insults to other participants on this list, not even those who can’t tell the difference between pedantry and a request for clarification of meaning.

Whitsoxdude's avatar

My opinion is that this discussion reminds me of Yahoo Answers.

DominicX's avatar

It’s funny how we all have had these opinions all along, no matter how “nice” we seem, but when we finally let them out, it suddenly appears ugly and nasty. Just goes to show you that everyone has a harsh side. And how much that harsh side is concealed for the sake of being “tolerant”, “polite”, “nice”, etc.

There definitely seems to be such a thing as “too honest”.

thekoukoureport's avatar

sorry @Jeruba I know I am the offensive one here. But most of these answers are not truth, they are thought out calculated answers to seem intellegent. If you are going to answer at least be honest. thats all. None of these opinions are mine but when I read all this crap I get offended at the PC world we are here and not truly honest. If I offended anyone I am sorry and will be leaving for the night so as to not offend anyone else.

Maybe I got carried away and I apoligize. Really just trying to be funny.
I know grow up.

I don’t like people who don’t respect my spiritual beliefs.

I can’t stand it when someone does not fully investigate something before forming an opinion.

I do not care for people saying my spiritual/paranormal experiences are in my head.

I think life and the universe coming from nothing is a bigger miracle than intelligent design.

I think the Big Bang Theory is most likely false. (I’m not a creationist)

I hate attention whores.

I can’t stand all the anti-red meat agenda being pushed on the news and internet.

I hate dogmatic religion and materialism.

The FDA is super corrupt.

Cancer research will never try methods that the pharmaceutical industry can’t make a large profit off of.

Most self-proclaimed “free thinkers” are not free thinkers.

Confidence is overrated while ability is underrated.

Affirmative action is reverse sexism/racism.

I could go on and on I suppose.

@thekoukoureport, I truly haven’t any idea why you are apologizing to me. Think nothing of it.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

I believe convicted and proven beyond doubt rapists and child molesters should be quickly executed and left to be a burden on the rest of society. Some people believe out of sight and out of mind is good enough and they’re willing to pay for it but I’m not. I also don’t believe they should be tortured even though they are warped and dangerous, I’m all for volunteering to fire off a few bullets or install guillotines as a social contribution in lieu of some tax money.

That much profiling data is accurate, but, in civilized society, one must pretend it isn’t.

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

I believe some criminal sentences should be softened, not toughened, and in many cases supplemented with counselling and psychological assessment.

Its so hard to bite my tongue on this thread!

zzc's avatar

@Jeruba, I don’t see what is offensive by wanting a wife(either sex, but no sex), or servant to do everything for me, while I do the thinking….etc. I have often said that very thing! And that I was suppose to have an entourage, but something went seriously wrong in the universe!

Any way, some would find it offensive that I think pot and prostitution should be legalized. I don’t believe that prohibition works. They’re here to stay. I say, legalize ‘em and clean ‘em up, regulate ‘em, and less likely to be criminalized and exploitive, like alcohol was, and TAX ‘em to gain the revenue to put back into improving schools, scholarships, education, infrastructure etc.

I’m following this question so I can finish reading it lol.

My truly offensive opinion doesn’t matter because it has been said 100 times all over fluther.

kenmc's avatar

After typing them out, they don’t really sound that bad.

I don’t believe in criminal sentences over 30 years in prison. The death penalty is right out.

The art of photography has been ruined by digital cameras.

Religion is a tool used by governments to control the population ever since the founding of the Holy Roman Empire.

Laws against smoking go too far.

Population control isn’t a bad idea, but I don’t think there’s anyone that is qualified enough to decide who does/doesn’t get to breed.

Abortion is a good thing.

@MRSHINYSHOES You may find them esthetically pleasing, but try walking around in them for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, and then come back and let us know how you feel about high heels.

@Pied_Pfeffer No thanks! I prefer my pair of shiny black leather men’s dress shoes. ;)

augustlan's avatar

I know this is terrible, but in the interest of honesty…

I hold a persistent opinion that I’m smarter than 99% of the people I know in ‘real’ life. Not here, mind you. You folks routinely humble me. I feel like most of the people I come into contact with just aren’t terribly bright, and aren’t very interested in the wider world. I genuinely try not to hold it against anyone… I recognize that it’s my problem, not theirs. Mostly, I manage to keep it to myself, but it bothers me anyway. It’s smug and obnoxious to feel superior, and I hate that I feel that way. It’s probably my biggest fault.

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@augustlan Maybe you should seek more intelligent circles to mix in.

Facade's avatar

@augustlan Don’t beat yourself up so much.

augustlan's avatar

@FireMadeFlesh What do you think I’m doing here? :p

The thing is, I don’t travel in very academic circles. I never went to college, mostly worked for small service industry companies, then became a stay-at-home mom. That’s not to say that I don’t like the people I know… I do. But there are only a very few that I can hold an in depth conversation with. Happily, I’m married to one of them, and gave birth to a few others. :)

@Facade Thanks, girlie.

Blackberry's avatar

Ok I’m done reading, good thread, everyone. I’m surprised and happy you all actually had the discipline to refrain from turning this into a 500 answer flame thread : ) Now let’s all go get some ginger snaps

jaytkay's avatar

@Jeruba beg your pardon, @jaytkay. I misunderstood the intent of the question. I thought it was to give voice to private opinions that others might find offensive and not to deliberately insult one another

Actually, you understood the intent correctly.

If I came off as personally insulting, my apologies for overestimating my ability to convey kidding and teasing in writing. Something that is obvious hyperbole or ribbing in person can look serious and mean-spirited in writing.

Regarding the intent of the question – I think most of us are more prejudiced than we generally acknowledge. Religion, race, class, region, education, appearance, language, popular culture – there are endless ways we set ourselves apart and make ourselves feel we are in the superior position.

And that’s not always wrong. To pick obvious examples, you aren’t going to persuade me that my moral values are only as good as those of Klansmen, the Taliban or gang members who use neighborhoods in my own city as shooting galleries.

Now I’m not worried about offending the Klan. But my view of religion stated here would hurt the feelings of some my friends at the church-sponsored charity where I volunteer weekly. As someone who enjoys civilization, I happily leave those views unsaid at the church, nobody there is condemning me to hell and we enjoy each others’ company and we do a little good for our community.

When I wrote the question, I didn’t have lofty thoughts, just a vague idea of safely airing some rude ideas which we often pretend don’t exist in our own heads.

I find plenty of offensive speech in the typical Fluther political thread, but I found this thread to be surprisingly not horrible. In an admittedly twisted way, this was an attempt to have a civil discussion – no arguing, no defending, no finger-pointing.Some people found it appalling, I guess our tolerance for a little mayhem varies. It wasn’t perfect but I think people generally were pretty well-behaved.

ragingloli's avatar

That every supporter of the death penalty should be executed, so they can experience what they support. And for my personal amusement.

HungryGuy's avatar

Okay, speaking of the death penalty… You want a truly offensive opinion? I mean a real opinion, and not a joke one? Well, here goes: I’m opposed to the death penalty, but I believe that anyone convicted of a crime that would otherwise warrant the death penalty be sold as a slave at government auction to pay back the victims or victim’s estate. How’s that for offensive :-)

I think NYC has the best pizza.
Sorry Chicago, but if I want cake, then I’ll buy one, damn it :(

I also think a lot of teenagers and kids these days are mannerless, disrespectful, poorly educated, and obnoxious.

Blackberry's avatar

@Michael_Huntington I don’t even eat chain restaurant pizza anymore after coming to the NE. We didn’t have stuff like white pizza in Oregon lol.

ragingloli's avatar

@MRSHINYSHOES
That is not really offensive. It is just what every adult during the entire history of humanity believed.

“Our youth now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love to chatter in places of exercise. Children are tyrants, not the servants of the household. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up their food and tyrannize their teachers.”- Sokrates

HungryGuy's avatar

@Michael_Huntington – That’s not an offensive opinion. That’s true :-)

jaytkay's avatar

I’m not a fan of Chicago pizza, but hotdogs are much, much better here than anywhere else.

Though I do like a hotdog and papaya when in NYC

@ragingloli Okay, correction—-“a lot of WHITE boys are obnoxious, lazy, mannerless, and stupid.” (apologies to Ben_Dover ......wink!) Lol.

mammal's avatar

i find the war in Iraq and Afghanistan gravely offensive.

The glossy way the media skips over the atrocious suffering of both parties, the positive, upbeat coverage of young IED victims, amputees, maimed and disfigured, who will spend the rest of their days at psychological war with themselves, whilst children morbidly stare and beautiful women politely ignore them….. makes me fucking retch.

But i guess what i find particularly offensive is that not one person in this thread, and it’s a pretty long thread, mentioned one fucking thing, even remotely alluding to this man made, manufactured tragedy, deliberately prosecuted with lies and screwy mission objectives.

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@mammal I don’t think your opinion is truly offensive, and that is probably why no one has yet mentioned it.

augustlan's avatar

@mammal I agree with @FireMadeFlesh. That’s not an offensive opinion. War itself is offensive to me.

mammal's avatar

@augustlan @FireMadeFlesh i see, perhaps i misunderstood the theme, fair enough, i was going to go into, something along the lines of i find it offensive how indifferent people on here seem to have become to the various middle eastern conflicts, yet how they fight like Alley Cats over perceived homophobia or pro-religious positions. i find that offensive.

jaytkay's avatar

@mammal I can redeem your comment about the wars by saying lots of people would be offended and say you don’t support the troops, you hate America, etc.

I’m not one of those people, but they are out there.

DeanV's avatar

Ringo Starr was a better drummer than John Bonham and that electronic music has more depth, soul, and is more revolutionary than any other genre of music.

jaytkay's avatar

electronica? ewwwww, I AM offended.

GA anyway, Ringo is extremely under-rated

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@dverhey That is certainly controversial – electronic is shallow and soulless compared to songs like this.
Disclaimer: I don’t necessarily agree with the ideas expressed in this song, I just like the music.

Fred931's avatar

@dverhey I got the revolutionary bit, but I think any kind of music can be as deep or soulful as any other and that those characteristics depend more on the creation of the song rather than what it’s created with.

DeanV's avatar

@Fred931 @FireMadeFlesh @jaytkay I just ask that you don’t put all electronic music in the category of Sandstorm.

There’s good electronic music as well.

Blackberry's avatar

@dverhey I agree wholeheartedly, and would even go further and say that the whole general genre of chill out lounge to electronica…pretty much electronic music without words, is as you described it. I feel like this range of music is more open to personal interpretation because its sound and lack of words.

MissAnthrope's avatar

Why the hating? There is some really fantastic, emotional, deep, and soulful electronica. It’s not all of the ‘untz untz untz untz untz’ variety. I can even think of a few trance/dance tracks that are way more emotionally expressive than I’d expect.

Offensive opinion? I can’t say it, it’s too offensive, I think. It’s racist and would get me in trouble. What’s all this talk about racism being only about skin color, if I got a tan it wouldn’t make me a better dancer. That’s the best I can do. I study sociology, so I’m interested if not fascinated with race. But I’m not really a racist, just kinda racial.

jaytkay's avatar

@truecomedian Offensive opinion? I can’t say it, it’s too offensive

That was my original intent – go ahead and say something which you normally suppress.

The thread sprayed out in several other directions, but that was my original idea.

Guys with big trucks are annoying, what they lack in intelligence they over exceed in unnecessary engine power.. and no.. your ridiculously huge tires do not impress me.

Oh, and thanks to all the conservative republicans, the rest of the world hates the United states because they think we are all the same. The US could do so many great things if it wasn’t for these old timers who think we still live in the 1900s. Move on people!! Times are changing.. we all need to be a little more open minded!!!
