Generation Snowflake: Safe Spaces, Trigger Warnings And The Wussification Of Our Youn

WTF is wrong w/ people?? We're raising a bunch of worthless coddling ticks. The question IS rhetorical. It's understood that the fed gov't is intentionally creating such worthless people w/their propaganda designed to attack usefulness.
The evidence is clear.

Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs. When our basic needs are met, we can move on to less essential things.

"...These precious snowflakes are the children of political correctness, their parents and schools lead them to believe that the world is perfectly moralistic — they don’t live in the real world, it is a fantasy..."

Re: Generation Snowflake: Safe Spaces, Trigger Warnings And The Wussification Of Our

Wow! When I was in college, which was indeed a long time ago, it was encouraged to debate sensitive topics. Those backward, insensitive professors of the time actually thought it was a learning experience to discuss such things, both in and out of the classroom. Got real heated and loud at times. Good stuff indeed! We were all the better for it.
Were feelers hurt? Probably, but nobody started balling about it. Well, maybe somebody did, but who cares?

I think the term, "snowflake generation", is very accurate.

Ron.

It's just another way that the globalists who are pushing common core curriculum to remove destroy our 1st amendment rights. Don't think for one instant that this hasn't been planned.

Re: Generation Snowflake: Safe Spaces, Trigger Warnings And The Wussification Of Our

I just told my son about the dodge ball thing. He laughed and said when he and his brother went to Youth Group at the church last night, they ended with a game of dodge ball, run by the youth pastor.

No kids traumatized, except for a few bruises...

Just remember: snowflakes melt with a little heat!😘😛. In my experience, NOT ALL are snowflakes.

OTOH: there are MANY tough resilient groups with many young people who "take a liken and come back for more!" Cases in point: snowboarders, skateboarders, mt bikers, bmx riders, white water paddlers, the mentioned "dodge ball" players, etc. 😀
