Ten Unpopular True Thoughts, With Reactions

The contest in the coffee shop was simple: what are some true, but unpopular thoughts?

1. Some women like the thought of becoming mothers and are willing to make choices about their careers that mean they do not work the same kinds of hours or in the dangerous --and therefore high-paying-- jobs that men do. If you say this, you will be called a "misogynist" by those who aren't willing to hear you tell the truth.

2. Black Lives Matter does not focus on the real problems in the black community of bad schools, a high abortion rate, fatherlessness that make it so difficult for them to get out of the cycles of gang-violence and poverty that affect so many of them, particularly the black young men. If you say this, you will be called a "racist" by those who aren't willing to hear you tell the truth.

3. In countries under Muslim-majority rule, women and gays do not enjoy the freedoms that they do in Christian-majority countries in the West: women are denied what we consider basic human rights, and gays are legally killed. If you say this, you will be called "Islamophobic" by those who aren't willing to hear you tell the truth.

4. America and the U.K. deserve to have borders that are legally enforced so that they can choose who comes into their countries, because preserving their culture and traditions matters. If you say this, you will be called a "white nationalist" by those who aren't willing to hear you tell the truth.

5.Most people don't find being fat as healthy or pleasurable as being thin, and encouraging young women to become fat only guarantees that they will be miserable and alone. If you say this, you will be called a "hater" by those who aren't willing to hear you tell the truth.

6. Young men are not served well by our educational system's focus on women at the expense of the kinds of activities and disciplines that would enable boys to become responsible and successful men. If you say this, you will be called a "misogynist" or "white supremacist" by those who aren't willing to hear you tell the truth.

7. It is vindictive and mean for gays to go after family-owned flower shops, wedding photographers, bakers, and pizza restaurants simply for standing up for their religious convictions in not supporting gay marriage. If you say this, you will be called a "homophobe" by those who aren't willing to hear you tell the truth.

8. Those who call themselves feminists seem more intent on bashing men than in ensuring equality of opportunity for women and men. You already know what they will call you.

9. The media lie all the time about libertarian and conservative values and those who hold them. If you say this, they won't forgive you.

10. It is the Left who turn to violence when they do not get their own way, in the overwhelming majority of instances. If you say this, you will be called a "fascist" or "Nazi" by those who aren't willing to hear you tell the truth.
