A Thought Question about Opinions

Here's something to think about. You don't have to answer out loud, and there are no right or wrong answers:
What opinions do you hold but you are embarrassed about?
This isn't about "heretical" opinions, or "iconoclastic" opinions, or "dissident" opinions. People are quite often proud of those sorts of contrary opinions. The sort of opinions that people are embarrassed to hold are opinions that would
  • diminish you in the eyes of people you respect

  • make you seem to be in agreement with people who you despise

  • offend or hurt those you care about

  • imply terrible things about you that are not true

I will admit to having a number of such embarrassing opinions, but of course I'm not going to tell you what any of them are.

If it's not as heinous as 'actually I thought the 70s were a good decade for music' you're OK.

No, of course you wouldn't post it here. That's what PostSecret is for.
