This word is a common-ish word, and it has been on my mind all day. It's really frustrating to keep attempting to find out what this word has been alone, so I decided to just ask others here.

The word basically is directed at things that people have different opinions towards.

Example: You can't say that art piece is good. Art is _______.

Anybody have an idea?

I believe the word you are looking for is subjective


1. based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions.

(as defined by google)

Art is subjective, as in, whether it is good or not depends on who is looking at it.


Art is subjective.

As for other topics of discussion, possibly "debatable", "controversial", "arguably".
