This is a question Controversial Beliefs

Some mugs still think the MMR injection gives children autism (it doesn't), while others are of the belief that we're ruled by billionaire lizard people. Tell us about views outside the mainstream which people go glassy eyed if you bang on about them (Your grandad's a racist - no need to tell us, thanks)

If your significant other consistently leaves 1 sheet on a toilet roll.
They have no respect for you, and basically the relationship is over.
If the last sheet has been removed, then laid over the top of the cardboard tube, they're probably seeing someone else.

Only cyclists should be allowed to drive cars.
As a cyclist you have a much better appreciation of the dangers of driving, and definitely have better road awareness. The only people with the skills to use cars are bike riders. All current car drivers should be forced to sell their cars and spend 5 years getting around on pushbikes, until they have the necessary skills to graduate to motorised transport.

Belief through volume and repetition
I once went to an Evangelical wedding. Real happy-clappy born again Christian types. At one point, they were all shouting out "I believe! I believe" and such like.

I couldn't help think that, rather than their god or the other members of the group, the ones they were really trying to convince were, in fact, themselves...

Sex education
You may remember there was a period during sex education where the boys and girls are seperated, or at least there was at the school which I had attended.

The boys would sit, feeling somewhat uncomfortable, whilst the teachers would discuss various issues in a lads only forum.

During this period, I strongly believe that the girls were learning the macarena, the moves to Whigfield's Saturday night dance and other pop tunes of the era.

This can be the only logical explanation as to why every female over the age of thirteen knows the moves to every fucking one of these songs.

I knew a woman who thought that all plants had a potential medical application.
She also wanted to be a man and was convinced that eventually a plant would be discovered with the relevant properties to accomplish this without surgical intervention.

I know that medicines derived from plants have accomplished amazing things, but I just couldn't accept her ideas. Cunt reversal by leaves! Seriously?

And I'm the bad guy?
I was at a family gathering. My family are lovely but they are creationist fundamentalist Christians. I'm the black sheep of the family they have long ago given up trying to save me and I have agreed to stop wearing my Darwin Viva La Evolution T shirt because it just antagonizes people. I was chatting to my cousin who had recently got a kitten. She was bemoaning the fact that she had to by law get the kitten vaccinated.

"So, what's the problem?" I innocently asked
"I don't agree with vaccination" came the incredible reply
"what do you mean you don't agree with it, you can't disagree with vaccinations, you mean your against vaccinations for pets....that means...you believe all that shit about the MMR?"
"yes they're unsafe"
"but they have been proved to be safe I can find you medical papers on my phone right now that will state unequivocally that the MMR vaccine is safe. They have been peer reviewed"

"I don't care, I'm entitled to my opinion" came the startling response

At this point I was ready to leave it then she said something else

"oh you know me Sittingduck I think all sorts of silly things. I mean I don't think they really landed on the moon"

Well up to that point it was quiet discussion I was trying to make her to see sense and to drag her mind into the modern age and get her kids vaccinated. This however was red rag to a bull. I'm afraid I may have ranted. I may have raved and I was told to stop and I felt really really bad about it but FOR FUCK SAKE faked moon ladings!

I have been forgiven and the silly cow still believes in the sky daddy, MMR is bad, the moon landings never happened, & 9/11 was a government conspiracy probably

Yet some sandal-wearing tree hugger in government says that before long I won't have the right to give my child emphysema? Fucking nanny state.

Only asylum seekers should get benefit money
People born in the UK have won life's lottery. Just being mediocre, getting up in the morning and going through the motions will win you riches beyond the dreams of most of the people in the world.

Asylum seekers aren't so lucky. They've been born into hardship and may well have risked their lives to get here. They the lifeblood of the UK, the least we can do is give them a leg up.

A few guys in work
live off the utter bile on the net that is on the "conspiracy grapevine". It's rather comical and they keep to themselves about it, occasionally hopping in with some rather special quotes; one in particular was "you want to watch that Opening Ceremony for the Olympics Jeccy, that's when the aliens are due over London and that's why there are rockets on every London roof to stop the invasion". That one that kept me in mirth for pretty much the entire Games, half hoping that the sky would fall during the 110m hurdles. He was almost proved right too until they identified the 1st alien on screen as Clare Balding.

One thing that did piss me off was when one of the "believers" started lecturing me on anti-psychotropic medicine saying they were all placebos and the idiots taking them are thick for falling for it. Considering that my dad has to take these every day to prevent him from attempting to commit suicide again (the medication he's currently on makes him completely normal and more happy than he's been for the last 10 years) I was really the wrong audience for this speech.

My viewpoint on it is that yeah it's great to have some ideas on other things and it's not my place to change your beliefs, just don't preach it about unless you are pretty sure you can back it up as you will look quite the tool. THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE, BUT IT'S PROBABLY NOT ON A WEBSITE WITH A SHIT CLIPART OF A UFO AND A MAGNIFYING GLASS.

Bothering famous people and complaining when they act like cunts.
One of the people I look up to has a problem with dealing with rabid fans, and when a rebuffed fan doesn't get what he wants and turns nasty , saying 'The fans made you' his standard reply pf "I've worked hard for my money, I don't want fame, I want to be good at what I do and I don't appreciate being interrupted when I'm having some private time with my family or friends" isn't unreasonable.

That famous person has had nothing from you except maybe 5p from the CD sale or 2p from the movie ticket. Even if you've bought 50 of their albums or seen 20 of their movies, what does that £1 that they've had from you personally entitle you to? They'll have been bothered 250 times a day, so if they're kind and take time to stop and say hello, fine. If they're cunts then don't act like you somehow own a piece of them, respect their right to some time not having to put on an impromptu private meet-and-greet just for you.

Men are an oppressed minority
They are failed by a the education system, are more likely to be homeless or unemployed than women and are more likely to commit suicide. But public money resources in these areas is routinely diverted to women only services.

Men are more likely to contract cancer than women, and when they do are more likely to die, but again resources for research and care are biased towards women only services.

The Adversarial Justice System is geared towards letting more criminals off than locking up innocent people.
but if I'm a witness for the defence being cross examined by the prosecution saying 'YOU did THIS and YOU did THAT'- if it's not true, you say 'That's not true' and they say 'YOU ARE A LIAR SIR' I can't deck the fucker without getting done for contempt of court. Seems like it's one rule for the wig-wearers and another for the rest of us.
