Oh they won't be crying at snowflakes when their wiping their ass.

In fact that probably won't happen because our infrastructure will have failed by then and there won't be anymore more money to left care for the elderly.


I remember one of your first threads when you recommended boomers quit their jobs, commit suicide, or both.
For all your reading, you still haven't changed that much. I thought you were a kid, and you would grow up. But you're not. And you haven't.

Welcome to the generation of not keeping score, everyone is a winner. In my view this is where it starts, this gereration wants everything handed to them and their way, no more working for nothing just give it to me and lets start me at the top.



Why are you and others taking a few examples and condemning an entire generation?

It's bull#. An entire generation is not growing up asking for everything to be handed to them. That is what you and others believe because you inform yourselves through media outlets that confirm your preconceived bias'.

Out in the real world, that is not how it is. The younger generations are working just as hard as any other before it and we are going to be just fine.

The older generations need to diversify their information outlets and stop being a bunch of old pansies that bitch and complain about everything.

It's a shame everyone isn't a middle age conservative with right wing Christian values, to think young people would want a voice in society is absurd. Their music is too loud too and their clothes. Don't get me started on the clothes. Why can't they just be like their parents generation,

You made me smile, but I wonder if the snowflakes will make the world a better and safer place ?

Older people have been complaining about young people for as long as people started living long enough for there to be old people.

Strangely enough pretty much every man made set back for humanity (war, environmental, economic) has been a direct result of decisions made by old men in positions of power.

Where are these people? The only place I hear about them is on ATS. I'm an old millenial (previously known as Generation Y), who attended a major Canadian university in an arts program, and I have never met any women or men who are so offended by life they just can't function. I think this story and stories like it are just way over represented, as people love to be the "better generation". Our great grandparents complained about our grandparents, and on and on it went and it will go on forever.

An 18 year old girl saying she hates blue eyes just sounds like teenaged stupidity. Most of us were stupid teenagers once.


You possibly just missed it by a hair, as did I (thankfully). I would also be considered an old millennial, grew up just in the time where bullying was still cool. I saw nothing so extreme during my time on different campuses some years ago, but now I can go down to those same campuses and see this extreme behavior in several different ways. I feel like I missed it by only a year or two. It also appears to be rapidly growing, as if it's being pushed by an organized effort.

Offended at what? People's stupidity?

No. I feel sorry for them. What a crappy life it must be to go through life being a brainwashed lemming that cannot think for themselves.

What "real world" is that?

These kids won't lift a finger to save their own lives half the time, and when they do they have to sit down twenty minutes later for dizziness and nausea.

They avoid hard work like the plague and they're not smart enough for anything else.

Sounds hard, I know. That's life.

I wouldn't know about that, I live a good life as a skilled tradesmen, as my father and his father were. My son is a 26 year old apprentice plummer, I would not concider him to be a snowflake, he is a hard worker but he always knew the score, what about you?

In business, I have run into the phenomenon, with individuals in their mid-twenties.

The job applicants are completely over the top. The one that took the case most recently was a female job applicant. After being given a copy of the job requirements and prerequisites, she asked for an interview. During the interview, she was asked for documentation of the skills. She said, "Oh, I don't have that training. You'll need to teach me after I'm hired." She was told that we aren't interested in hiring someone who doesn't already possess the qualifications--as a certificate-- for the position. She began shouting and stomped out of the interview. Her lawyer called the next day; she apparently considered suing the firm for not hiring her just because she was unqualified!!! (Lawyer gave up after about 45 seconds.)

An existing worker contacted HR because he "just couldn't" attend his semi-annual performance review. It might make him feel judged. Even though his supervisor would not be present, it would still be oppressive because HR "is full of idiots who will do whatever [manager] says". The worker said this... to the HR worker who would be doing the review! The worker asked for the firm to "generate an alternative process" that didn't involve scoring him for his past performance, because "any system that assigns me a score will make me look bad."

I have run into similar and worse behaviour from people in their 30's, 40's and 50's.

Nothing to do with age or 'Generation Snowflake' and everything to do with individual stupidity.

I'm not sure these folks represent any sort of a majority, it's just that they are the loudest and most demanding. If this ugly behavior catches on any further it is because their ideological brethren continually and obsequiously make concessions and excuses for them, where they should be denounced and ridiculed.

The students from England, stupit, unprepared, and seem to thing they had the place becouse they were english

Students demand that universities are ‘safe spaces’, free from opinions that will make them feel uncomfortable. There has been a rise in ‘No platforming’ - barring someone with controversial views from speaking at an event at all.

Faced with such thin-skinned students, no wonder Oxford University has introduced ‘trigger warnings’ about ‘potentially distressing subject matter’ in law lectures on cases involving sexual violence.

From your source - and I use the word source with with an accompanying eyeroll...

Dates?

Some of this stuff is so old... regurgitated and licked up off the floor over and over again when the bell rings just like Pavlovs dogs

Triggered :-)

I have to wonder - why do you need these stories? Are they comforting?

How can you make such a statement? You have nothing to prove it to be true. You are creating a false narrative that fits your political agenda.

Congrats, but that has nothing to do with what I said.
