Elizabeth Gomez: Listicle from an Alleged Professional Contrarian

In a few recent heated debates with fellow DWWPers, I was accused of being a professional contrarian. If you don’t know what a professional contrarian is, it’s a person who automatically chooses the opposite image1side of widely held beliefs for the sake of being different. This is an unfair characterization, thus I am submitting a listicle proving that not only do I hate things, but I also like many things.

If you have strong opinions on anything on this list – pro or con – or want to add your own, please feel free in the comments! I know I am not alone!

Dislike:
Common hatred for the song Baby, It’s Cold Outside
Star Wars
The Beatles
Whip and Nay Nay
Willy Wonka 1971
DIY anything (this includes thrifting)
Caitlyn Jenner – not because of anything about her sexual identity mostly because she has some real shit like beliefs
Brangelina split
Harry Potter Movies
#alllivesmatter
Trump

Like:
Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas
Hunger Games
The Velvet Underground
Cha-cha slide or electric slide
Willy Wonka 2005 (technically Charlie & the Chocolate Factory)
Life hack food videos – any way to get it in my mouth faster is a plus!
Any positive movement for transgender people, as long as Caitlyn Jenner is not speaking
Brangelina together forever
Mad Max Fury Road
#blacklivesmatter
Anything but Trump

Skipped:
Sherlock
Jason Bourne
Harry Potter Books
#oscarssowhite

Conflicted:
New Ghostbuster vs. Old Ghostbusters – can’t I like them both for different reasons??
