Top Ten Words or Phrases that are Guaranteed to Start an Argument Online

Please keep it civil.
(Disclaimer: this list DOES NOT reflect my own opinions unless I say otherwise.)

The Top Ten

1 (Insert popular thing here) sucks

People who act like they're heroes and big fish in small ponds for being conservative and liking Donald Trump are annoying and stupid and should shut up

Really just saying that the MCU isn't that great will get you a bunch of hate replies or an MCU is alright comment. MCU lovers worship the MCU

Pop music sucks. There we go...
(Don't take this too serious)

Heavy metal sucks

2 Donald Trump

Argue all you want, he is guaranteed to win again in 2020.

He isn't guaranteed to win, stop talking out your butt, though I can understand your thought process, the President almost never loses the reelection

Hurr durr orange man bad

Want to piss off anyone on the left? Just say Donald Trump. It’s that easy

Not just the left, it will also piss off the right has well, if you want to piss off a majority of America just say his names

This one will be over about 3 years after his Presidency (hopefully 1 year), see has Republicans still talk about Obama even though his Presidency has been over for almost 3 years now, but then again that might just be because our current President loves Obama so much

3 (Insert anime character here) is best girl

It is hard to find online arguments more heated than two weebs fighting over which fictional animated girl is better.

If (Insert anime character here) is best girl, you need to get out of your basement.

Cory Baxter best wife

4 Rap? More like crap!

Hate comments have to be the dumbest thing that exists. If you hate the thing, why do you comment on it? Hate comments are hurtful to the person who might like the thing. It’s like you’re using your hate comments to offend someone and using those words as weapons. #MakeTheHatingStop

Is this supposed to be a Mr. Perfect meme, he was the one that made the rap is crap song right

Try listening to Cardi B or Post Malone. It's hard to argue it isn't CRAP.

Try listening to Immortal Technique or Kendrick Lamar. Will be hard to argue that it is CRAP. If you actually listen to the correct artists it will be good.

I cringe whenever I see someone unironically use this phrase.

5 Metal is just people screaming about Satan

That’s just a few black metal bands. Most well known metal bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Judas Priest etc aren’t satanic at all.

Nothing like ignorance to get an argument started

6 The earth is flat

If the Earth is flat, how does day and night and seasons happen? Some people say water doesn't curve. Well, what happens when you put a drop of water on a surface, it CURVES! Also, some Flat earthers say that water cannot stick to a spinning ball. The Earth makes a lot of gravity, unlike a small ball. The small ball would have to be close to earth ( with big gravity) so the water would fall off. The Earth can hold the water because of its gravity. Also, it would only spin once in 24 hours even though the centrifugal force would be unbelievable in perspective. So the Flat Earth demonstration of gravity fails because GRAVITY EXISTS!

No, it ain't! Pay attention in school, foo'!

Your brain is flat if you think so.

Whoever says that is stupid

7 There are only 2 genders

So I have definitely changed a lot since I made this list, lol. I'm far less apolitical than I used to be.
Claiming that there are only two genders is an uneducated statement at best and reactionary at worst. Sex and gender are two correlated, but different things. To those who are on the fence and unsure, I encourage you to do some research and also talk to trans and nonbinary people about their experiences with gender. This is a topic that I find very interesting, and I hope you do too!
To those who blatantly ignore the facts, grow up will you? The real world doesn't reflect your 6th grade understanding of biology. Some of y'all are stuck in that anti-sjw era of 2016 and it shows. Trans and nonbinary people aren't harming anyone for existing, so even if you don't understand them, just let them do whatever makes them happy.

One thousand times yes. The only statement that even comes close is the earth is flat, and that one is hilarious.

"(insert arbitrary thing) will make you go to Hell" will definitely cause a great argument

How to trigger a liberal 101

Because there is.

8 Amourshipping or Pokeshipping

I prefer pearlshipping

9 Vaccines cause autism

There is no good proof that this is true, but many woke Facebook soccer moms are somehow convinced that the herbs and essential oils they found on some blog are better remedies than vaccines created by professional lab researchers.

Which, of course, is a completely outdated method of treating illnesses.

Oh, yes, they most certainly do. there is no doubt about that and I am not calling you crazy if you think this, at all

10 I didn't think Sword Art Online was that bad

Hating on SAO can start arguments as well. When it comes to this show people either passionately love it or passionately hate it. There is virtually no in-between.

The Contenders

11 Fortnite is bad
12 T-series or pewdiepie

Last time I'd seen these two as the same item, it was about China, India or the Middle East getting nuked.

13 Memes are bad and useless

They are great and useless thank you very much!

They are bad and useless. Only some are funny.

They are in my opinion

Some of the are funny :/

14 LGBT

That's why you don't bring it up in the first place lol

15 My religion is better than yours

I actually do think this, but if you're not a Christian, I will not force you to believe my philosophy.

This and the “God isn’t real” statement causes a Hellstorm.

Or a much more innocent "I don't believe in God" or simply "I'm an Atheist"

16 I don’t like Steven Universe
17 Creationism or evolution

Yeah, this is often debated on DDO. It's ridiculously redundant.

18 The Last Jedi is a good movie

Calling anyone who hated it a whiny fan baby doesn't help. I may have done this a few times...

I really enjoyed watching it, but it is still a very flawed movie.

6/10 movie.

Really anything regarding Star Wars will start an argument, because that is how much of an impact Star Wars has made

19 All races are equal

This one is kind of sad really, all races should be equal but racism exists

20 Eminem created rap

Who would actually think Eminem created rap though?
equally as effective is say that Eminem is the GOAT of rap

21 Subscribe to T-Series

If you like Bollywood trailers there is nothing wrong with subscribing to them, but otherwise it's whatever they don't give you any real content. It was more of the last real independent creator versus major companies thing it was a cool meme in 2018

Not a super relevant topic anymore, but this list was in my drafts for a while. Even then, siding with T-Series was, and still is to an extent, treated as a cardinal sin.

The meme has gotten so stale that I actually WANT T-Series to surpass Felix despite being a fan of PewDiePie.

It has, also who cares who has the highest number of subscribers

22 Fortnite is good

This brings up every hate comment.

This starts a lot of them.

23 I love pizza

Most people love pizza though.

24 I don't like Kanye West
25 Trap music/mumble rap sucks and takes no talent

I agree with this. Lots of it sounds the same and it takes nearly no talent to make.

Well it's true...
