Um Kalthoum Might Be Overrated, And 21 Other Unpopular Opinions

We’re walking the talk of shame

Opinions Um Kalthoum

Let’s face it, we all have a couple of opinions we’re not too proud of. Opinions we’re really not too keen on sharing either. It could be anything from food everyone loves but you absolutely despise, or iconic films that everyone quotes, but for some reason you simply can’t watch past the trailer. 

The backlash many fear of facing if their take on a given matter goes public has kept too many of us quiet and even apprehensive of what would happen if ever ending up challenging the normative status-quo. To be fair, the internet is harsh.

But is it really that deep? In a world where political correctness reigns supreme- we’re here to challenge it– just a little bit. Not everything requires a big fuss, unless you’re a fan of pineapple on pizza. 

For that reason, the team gathered round the table of shame and made some of our most embarrassing, yet honest, opinions loud and clear for all to pry on.
