Opinion: a view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge
We can thank for Google for this concise definition.
I didn’t like the show: opinion.
I loved the show: opinion
People who didn’t like the show don’t like Latinas: opinion, well yes. It is clearly an opinion. Is it also labeling? Making a very generalized statement? Trying to divide people into groups?
A show like that reinforces women as sexual being only: opinion, but, are you framing this is such a way that you are making someone who feels opposite that they are wrong? And while I’m guessing there has been some study done to prove this is an actual fact…
A show like that shows that women are strong and empowered: opinion, but sort of like the previous example, how are you phrasing it. And, I’m betting there is some sort of study that proves that this is correct
So can we say that there might be studies that “prove” that polar opposites are simultaneously true?
The show was immoral: opinion- everyone is allowed to have their own internal code of morality, and we shouldn’t judge someone else’s morals- we’re not in their head
I’m glad my kids didn’t watch the show: opinion- everyone gets to decide what content they would prefer their kids reading/watching. Again, everyone has a different value system. I don’t tell people how to parent. OK I do, but I shouldn’t. (but don’t think I’m stopping- you’ll get another parental lecture eventually)
The people who thought the show was wrong are righteous Christians. opinion, sure. But is it right to throw a whole religion under the bus because they don’t like scantily clad costumes? And to be fair- can you think of any other religion that has a dress code and might think that the content was inappropriate? I mean really think about that…and then play my favorite game and replace Christian with another word…
How am I supposed to feel about myself at 50 after I look at JLO: opinion- but body dysmorphia doesn’t only affect pre teen girls- it affects everyone to a certain degree. Now, I say to any woman who looks that good at 50 rock on. But remember- the job of an entertainer is to look good. Their JOB- trainers, dieticians, enhancements- their JOB
Let’s get off this particular line of thought for a second and think about something else I heard: I have a few guy friends, and let’s just say they represent varied ethnic groups. Some of these guys said that even if they liked the show, they would not admit it because they didn’t want to be seen as someone who is interested in sequined women dancing on poles. They didn’t want to be classified under men who don’t value women for their intellect, only their sex appeal.
I still haven’t watch the halftime show. I saw a picture or three of the entertainers, which were fine, But to be fair, I don’t like the halftime show, ever. I think they’re overhyped and overworked. ALL OF THEM.
So- not liking the half time show makes me______________. If you were going to write a blog about my dislike for the show in general, what words would you call me? How would you label me? What group would you throw under the bus to describe me?
What is your opinion of me and my not liking half time shows?
