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 There are only 2 genders

I'm on the side claiming gender is a physiological social construct that may not always match up with one's biological sex, but we have free speech here, so people can disagree and I could care less. What I do ask is that people actually treat each other with respect. I can't tell you how many disgusting comments I have seen that blatantly dehumanize trans people. Even if you don't like their opinions or actions, you should still treat them like fellow human beings that deserve basic human rights! - Atham

Because there is. - Crizz

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 - germshep24

How to trigger a liberal 101 - Randomator

2 Donald Trump

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 - germshep24

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 - germshep24

Hurr durr orange man bad - Not_A_Weeaboo

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

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 - germshep24

3 (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 - DenyYourMaker

Pop music sucks. There we go...
(Don't take this too serious) - Userguy44

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 - germshep24

Fortnite Sucks. Now If you’ll excuse me I think some triggered fortnite fans are coming - Randomator

4 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. - Userguy44

Nothing like ignorance to get an argument started - germshep24

5 (Insert anime character here) is best girl

Cory Baxter best wife - Not_A_Weeaboo

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

6 Rap? More like crap!

I cringe whenever I see someone unironically use this phrase. - Atham

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

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. - DarkBoi-X

Is this supposed to be a Mr. Perfect meme, he was the one that made the rap is crap song right - germshep24

7 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!

Your brain is flat if you think so. - Userguy44

Whoever says that is stupid - 23windomt

8 Amourshipping or Pokeshipping
9 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. - Atham

10 Fortnite is bad

The Contenders

11 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.

12 Memes are bad and useless

They are great and useless thank you very much! - Stalin

They are bad and useless. Only some are funny. - Luckys

They are in my opinion - darthvadern


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

14 T-series or pewdiepie
15 The Last Jedi is a good movie

Really anything regarding Star Wars will start an argument, because that is how much of an impact Star Wars has made - germshep24

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

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

I hated it - darthvadern

16 My religion is better than yours

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

Or a much more innocent "I don't believe in God" or simply "I'm an Atheist" - germshep24

17 Eminem created rap

Who would actually think Eminem created rap though?
equally as effective is say that Eminem is the GOAT of rap - germshep24

18 Creationism or evolution
19 I don’t like Steven Universe
20 Subscribe to T-Series

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. - Atham

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

It has, also who cares who has the highest number of subscribers - germshep24

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 - germshep24

21 All races are equal

This one is kind of sad really, all races should be equal but racism exists - germshep24

22 Fortnite is good

This starts a lot of them. - B1ueNew

This brings up every hate comment. - Userguy44

23 I love pizza

Most people love pizza though. - Userguy44

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. - Userguy44

Well it's true...
