I Don’t Mean To Cut You Off But…
I don’t really like Michael Jackson.
I don’t think he was the greatest pop star of all time. I don’t think he was the greatest entertainer of all time. His music is just okay.
This is my opinion.
I was never a fan and only enjoyed two songs by him…ever.
Did that piss you off a bit? Make you clench your butt cheeks?
Whenever you say you don’t like something do you find yourself having to explain your opinion to others?
I find that this doesn’t happen with popular opinion’s but soon as an opinion surfaces that goes against the grain (salute to August Alsina), people are all in a tizzy about reason and such.
People never question why you like the same thing as them. As long your opinion is the same as the majority, you’re in the clear, explanation free. If you decide to have your own mind… Well muthafucka you got some explaining to do.
You never will have the conversation of “Really? You like that same thing that I like, why so?”
If I was asked for a reason why I don’t like Michael Jackson, the only rationale I can give is that I don’t enjoy most of his music.
That reason sounds rational to me, but also lackadaisical.
I know that if I was in an argument with a Michael Jackson fan and just said, “I don’t like his music,” I would lose terribly.
I can imagine a fan coming up with a long, passionate, violin backed reason for why Michael Jackson is great, and then compared to my very blunt reason sprinkled with a lack of fucks, I would appear to go down and lose.
To save my breath the next time someone wishes to argue about how I am wrong for disliking anything popular I will simply hit them with the overly used “everyone is entitled to their opinion,” and I suggest that you do the same.
I only suggest this because passionate opinions seem to be so wide spread that people who have no emotional backing will always seem to lose.
Please save your energy and do not argue with a persons whose passion is the same as everyone else. These people have support and feel invincible in this support and therefore WILL NOT LOSE.
Let it go!!! Rationality and factual statements are a thing of the past. Emotion rules all.
I so miss the world of arguments based on facts and not based on feelings.
No wonder people are losing their lives over parking spots.
