Oh my gosh they are just opinions.Ok I have done this a few times but I have stopped for the most part. - DarkBoi-X

3 Being told to calm down

I am guilty of this sometimes and I try not to overreact but I just can't.Sorry I have anger issues. - DarkBoi-X

Nobody should be told to calm down. No one likes it and it doesn't help the situation. - ParasN2000

4 Fake news

Jeez people,they are just fake news. - DarkBoi-X

I know that but I'm talking about the news that's obviously fake like for example "Trump attacks Canada for being too liberal" - DarkBoi-X

Get over it

There's a difference between bullying and criticism. - DarkBoi-X

8 Edgy memes/jokes

No meme is funny without offensive jokes. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Edgy jokes are the best and Edgy memes are one of the few things that can make me laugh. - DarkBoi-X

From my understand as of now, edgy jokes are funny because they are offensive, as in, I mean that they're funny because you 'shouldn't' say them. Is it funny if you say something good like 'I ate my green beans' and not 'I ate my baby'? No - EliHbk

I don't get the whole point of "edgy jokes" I mean how is it funny? Is it amusing because of the people who like "edgy jokes" and their mindset is more amusing or just the offensive jokes themselves? And thanks- Kevinsidis

9 When people fight back against bullies

Haha love it when people say you are just as bad compared to a bully when you fight back against them. Flawless logic. - Powerfultekin

Some of my teachers have done this and many other people can relate to this. - DarkBoi-X

10 Teen Titans Go!

It gets too much hate. - girlcool

The Contenders

11 Revenge

People are ok if someone is bad but when the victim it's not ok.Just why? - DarkBoi-X

I know it’s wrong but DAMN it’s sweet - Not_A_Weeaboo

12 Homosexuality

It's not that big a deal. If you're gay, that's cool. I won't react overly positive or negative because there's not much that's special or abnormal about it, which is how it should be treated: a totally normal thing seen in a small percentage of people. - Atham

Forgot about this. - DarkBoi-X

13 Foodfight!

It may not have good animation, but I love Mr. Clipboard. A underrated classic. Critics, why so serious? - girlcool

I'd rather watch this than the Emoji Movie.

14 Spiders

I can understand this if you live in Peru. But where I live, spiders are harmless. - PositronWildhawk

Although this is quite justified.I mean just look at them. - DarkBoi-X

15 Films
16 Bisexuality
17 Whether Pluto is a planet or not

Pluto is a dead meme to be honest - EliHbk

18 Weed
19 The Emoji Movie

It's just a silly little kids film. It doesn't deserve to be treated like crap and to be unfairly compared to Inside Out and Wreck It Ralph. - girlcool

I dunno, feels justified.

20 Reaction Videos

I really like those... - mistyglow

Etika screaming when Luis Fonsi and Brite bomber get announced for Smash 6 - B1ueNew

The same as Trump, everything this guy does (specially if is negative) is overreacted, we aren't in 2009 anymore - Pato_cargo
