First lets look at the meaning of the word (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).

Controversy is a state of prolonged public dispute or debate, usually concerning a matter of conflicting opinion or point of view. The word was coined from the Latin controversia, as a composite of controversus – "turned in an opposite direction," from contra – "against" – and vertere – to turn, or versus (see verse), hence, "to turn against."

The most applicable or well known controversial subjects, topics or areas are politics, religion and sex.[1][2][3] Other areas of controversy include history and philosophy. Other minor yet prominent areas of controversy are economics, science, finances, culture, education, the military, society, celebrities, organisation, the media, age, gender, and race. Controversy in matters of theology has traditionally been particularly heated, giving rise to the phrase odium theologicum. Controversial issues are held as potentially divisive in a given society, because they can lead to tension and ill will, as a result they are often taboo to be discussed in the light of company in many cultures.

So being that this forum is a little boring( ooops controversy subject Big Smile Big Smile )/ Lets start a controversial subject! Anyone game ,( except of course pochui as he is just all about boobs and none of you argue that haha Tongue Tongue )?

Okay. I think we should consider blocking all travel from ebola infected regions, in order to save humanity from near extinction.
The mortality rate is about 70% (even with access to modern medicine), and incubation time 29 days.

+1. No controversy there from me aswell. Imagine just the thought of ahving such a thing in your city. You would have fear of touching anything that's around you. And imagine if you're sick of something other than, and you get the news that someone is in the same hospital as you with ebola. I would chit myself

Subtext: This forum is lacking a Dunotra. From the days when the forum was never boring. Big Smile

Well since you asked. Here are 10 controversial subjects to upset the average reader of the daily mail, the fox news type and maybe one or two more rational minds:

Decriminalisation of drugs is the only way to combat drug dealers
There is just as much idiocy and radicalism in Christianity as Islam
Socialism is not a dirty word nor a synonym for communism
Sex education doesn't teach you how to get sex (if only)
Swear words are just words until you add context so why can't you say f**k on the news
Climate change happens naturally; humankind, the great variety of life and the earth itself will go on
Money isn't the route of all evil but it's pretty crap
Alcoholism is a lifestyle that works pretty well for a great deal of the population and the nations bars
Charity telethons (like comic relief) do more harm than good except for celebrity egos/profiles
If incredibly drunk women having consensual sex is still rape then how can a drunk man still rape

Actually it's about a 50/50 split here. Oh and I do own a toothbrush. It may be 5 years old but I do own one.

------------

Swear words are just words until you add context so why can't you say f**k on the news


And what is the point of replacing the letters U and C with **. It's totally pointless, everyone is pronouncing it the same in their heads. Or is it the site of a U and a C that's offensive? It's a fcuking stupid convention.

Shocked and shocking, are you going to ban boobies next!! OMA!

I believe pouchi prefers small handful size boobies, which is just wrong, big motor-boating boobies are obviously best.

Regarding the post above, I feel sorry for people from SCUNThorpe in the UK, my old work had an office there and while a new ITS system was trying to prevent offensive emails, all their emails were blocked.

;p; dear I am hoping that some here have enough of a mind t read this.... never mind understand. Slim pickin's at best hee haw

Decriminalisation of drugs is the only way to combat drug dealers
Yes and makes many poker players happy too.
There is just as much idiocy and radicalism in Christianity as Islam.
No chit dear. I hate all religions equally. Funny enough though you never hear about the Catholic's that have blown up places,( IRA for example), etc Propaganda tells us who is a terror threat but never asks you to look inside where you are and what you are following. Scary chit really when you think about the amount of "sheep" out there that believe all their govt says and the news. FFS think for yourselves. As stated in this post

There was a patetich troll at the table harassing a girl wearing the traditional muslim headdress in her picture/avatar.
It was sad to see, once again, that people like him still exist and they are so convinced of their arguments

Alcoholism is a lifestyle that works pretty well for a great deal of the population and the nations bars

Charity telethons (like comic relief) do more harm than good except for celebrity egos/profiles

Anyone who donates to "charity's" is a fool. Get a brain and do directly. Help people who you see. Charity's are a crock of chit x 2939384746475894943030. Mother was with UNICEF for years as an exec. Crock of chit.

I somehow missed this thread at the time....

To me, being controversial (btw demo, I say CONtroversial... AND have relatively nice teeth Big Smile - see?) is having an opinion that the vast majority of people do not agree with. That doesn't mean controversial opinions are wrong though, because as we ALL know... the vast majority of people are retards Blink and their opinions should be avoided like a deadly disease that makes you bleed from your eyes, ears and arsehole.

Opinions only really become controversial when you try to force them on to the people who disagree.

But THE ONLY way to progress as a race is to do this. It was once incredibly controversial that women should be allowed to vote, people shouldn't keep others as slaves, black people aren't inferior to white people.... but all of these things are DEMONSTRABLY true.

Things that were once controversial, eventually become accepted IF THEY ARE CORRECT. And then something else will move into the controversy void left behind.

Stop controversial thinking... and stop the progression of Mankind.

Simple.

Not sure you're exactly right there yout. Controversy isn't "the opposite view of the majority of people " because you can have a view that nearly half the population agree with and it can still be controversial. I think controversy is a debate or a subject that gets people heated or divides people on a crucial level. One that can be used to provoke outrage or passion, togetherness or hatred.

For example the view that European films are better than Hollywood isn't particularly controversial except among film lovers and directors for most people accept there are arguments for both sides and it wouldn't offend them if someone had a difference of opinion.
But the view that black people should be segregated is certainly likely to offend people and has frequently resulted in demonstrations and violence in the past. Obviously the controversial ideas I gave were more rational imo and from the response I guess not very controversial (i.e. they did not offend anyone to the extent that they were compelled to reply)

Also when a controversial debate does hit the world, it's not always the correct view that gets accepted. Politics aren't always progressive. It's too easy to claim we live in a developed society or that democracy and progress are the same thing but sometimes things get worse not better.

Funny that this subject is the being the whole point of debate here Smile

To be controversial a subject must start a debate of thought and you will always have people on one side of the fence or the other and sometimes those that sit in-between with no real concept of the point of issue.

As for this statement awood88

quote" Also when a controversial debate does hit the world, it's not always the correct view that gets accepted. Politics aren't always progressive. It's too easy to claim we live in a developed society or that democracy and progress are the same thing but sometimes things get worse not better."

First sentence IMO true
quote" Also when a controversial debate does hit the world, it's not always the correct view that gets accepted."

As who really has the correct view? Which side. Lets give some examples happening today so better discussion can happen


Smile Smile Smile

yout85


quote"Things that were once controversial, eventually become accepted IF THEY ARE CORRECT. And then something else will move into the controversy void left behind."

Not really. Again IMO. It all comes down to again where you sit on a subject. Please give some today subjects with a point so we can discuss. For example...Death Penalty,Teen Drinking,Bioethical Issues,Oil Crisis,Freedom of Religion or Belief........
