an opinionated idea

I think the adjective opinionated is only applied to people. I'm not sure if you can also criticize an idea and call it opinionated.

For example, Jane explains that you must use each other for two people or entities and one another for more than two.

John has heard her and disagrees. For him, it's just an opinionated view because he believes that you can use these two phrases interchangeably.

    Someone who is opinionated not only has strong views, which he or she is convinced are right, but tends to revel in telling other people that their opinions are wrong.

    That description can only apply to a person – not a thing or a concept.
