Ok, let's throw some cats in amongst the pigeons:

What do you consider to be your most controversial opinion?

Exactly what it says on the tin: What do you consider to be your most controversial opinion?

(and apologies for the cliches/analogies!)

"What it says on the tin"

meaning: exactly what it says.

Controversial. An opinion that others might find unusual or shocking; maybe even offensive. But something YOU believe in.

Preferring green apples to red apples is probably a very common opinion. So NOT controversial.

Hey!
Now we're getting interesting (and sorry about the metaphors)!

Jana - I agree with virtually all of your opinions - especially about the free love/relationship (I am so annoyed I missed the 60s!) - it's far more work and challenging, but also rewarding too, if done right.

Andreas - I think the dog-ban is interesting, but probably harsh. I do think it should be a lot easier to lose a licence though (people with dogs just take it for granted).

My most controversial opinon? That the whole paedophilia hysteria is a massive con dremt up the US and UK tabloids to scare people into keeping their children conformed and therefore easier to control. Children are just as safe (if not safer) than they were 20/30 years ago.
