Generation Cry Baby: Why Millennials Are a F**king Joke

We’re raising a generation of pussies. There. I said it.



When I was a junior in high school, I had the most amazing AP English teacher. Her name was Ms. Wei. She prefaced the class by saying that she would grade us fairly, and that these grades would not always be A’s.

“I get that you and your parents all think you all are ‘special snowflakes,’ but I will grade you based on your writing, and if your parents email me complaining about these grades, I will ignore them.”

Now Ms. Wei was a little blunt for some (I freaking adored that woman, and I don’t know anyone who didn’t), but she brought up a good point.

Millennials: your parents won’t say it, and your peers won’t say it because it seems every little thing is sending you all to a therapist because you’re just sooooooo victimized, but

Get. The. FUCK. Over. Yourself. 



I won’t even say pardon my French, because you know what? Don’t pardon it. I hope it offends you. Although honestly, I could say just about anything and it would offend you. Because that’s just how our generation is.

And this isn’t just some backless rant. Oh no, it’s backed by psychology and science. PsychologyToday has gathered information from colleges saying that teachers are essentially giving up and grading easier because they are AFRAID OF STUDENTS’ EMOTIONAL REACTIONS ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?!


I was a camp counselor this summer, and the next generation is worse than ours. These kids are being raised on so much organic, special snowflake bullshit that they’ll probably have a psychological breakdown the second someone tells them they’re not as perfect as they think they are. And it’s nauseating.

Newsflash: Not every single criticism is an attack on your character. Sometimes, you just suck. And people tell you SO THAT YOU CAN IMPROVE. NOT SO YOU CAN GO HOME SOBBING ABOUT HOW THE WORLD IS UNFAIR AND YOU’RE SUCH A VICTIM AND YOU’RE SO DEPRESSED NOW.

Now, I get college is stressful. I get life is stressful. And yes, words can hurt. But we have gotten to a point as a generation where people can’t even make a joke without someone going all #ThisIsACauseNow.

Please, shut up. 

Most likely, you are not a victim. Everyone’s been bullied at some point. Everyone’s gotten a bad grade at some point. Everyone’s been sh*t on and hurt and imperfect AT SOME POINT.

But Rachel, everyone reacts and feels things differently.

No, no, no. Shut up. Listen. Because if you’re pissed off at this point in the article, you are EXACTLY who I am talking about.


We are living in a generation of internet wars, over-used counseling centers, and hand-holding-coddling-BS.

There used to be a time where two people could have different opinions and have an intelligent, educational conversation about it. Nowadays, two people have different opinions and all of a sudden it’s World War freaking 3. People used to be able to tell a joke without 4327852795 activist groups breathing down their throat. People used to be able to exist without offending someone.

So, here’s a lollipop of opinion: 99% of the time, people are just talking and are NOT going out of their way to offend you. People will make jokes. People will have different opinions from you. People will think how they think, and be how they’ll be, and most likely, it has nothing to freaking do with you.

Example: I’m going to post this article, and some of you will disagree with it. Some of you may even voice your opinions about how heartless and batshit I am. Some of you will somehow twist this into a race or gender or whatever thing. Some of you may even comment or tell me these opinions. And I won’t be offended. Because that is your right, just like it is my right to say that I will not give a single f**k.

There’s your lollipop, so pucker up like the baby you are, and suck on that.

SIDE NOTE: Addressing some things that keep coming up in the comments. I do note that my “complaining about complainers” errs way more than a little on the side of hypocrisy. However, the lack of sourcing and vulgarity are due to the fact that I wrote this out of boredom and frustration in my philosophy class after witnessing some “special snowflake” entitlement. Had I perceived it to gain the popularity and feedback that is has, the language, sources, and credibility would’ve been upped. I honestly did not expect my idle rantings to gain so much discussion. But hey, Internet. Yes, I am a millennial. Yes, I am a woman. Yes, I attend college. Proceed.

SIDE NOTE PART 2: Alright, I will take this time to clarify the counseling statement. Nowhere did I state I am against mental illness, though that’s how many are perceiving it. My issue lies in people either a) abusing resources made available to people who struggle with mental illness because they’re overly sensitive and b) people with mental illness using their illness as a shield and justification for actions. I do not attack those who do their best to cope with mental illness on a day to day basis. Rather, those who fall back on mental illness or emotional turmoil as an excuse and crutch, or a bargain for special treatment.

Also, FYI, “pussy” comes from the word pusillanimous, which means lacking courage or timid. So, can you keep your “Omg how sexist and misogynistic” or “pussy takes a beating so thx ;)” comments to yourself because I am so beyond bored of your ignorance clogging up my comments. Thanks ❤

  1. #1 snowflake: Donald Trump
    “Boohoo the media doesn’t love me, I’ll call them fake to soothe my bruised ego.”

    #2 snowflake: right wingers crying about Starbucks coffee cups
    “Boohoo Starbucks says happy holidays instead of merry christmas, I’m telling mommy #waronchristmas”

    Cucks: right wingers who’d suck the Donalds tiny dicklet and let him grab their wives by the pussy.

    Safe space: where right wingers go when told they can’t discriminate.


  2. Cute, another guy going through a midlife crisis with a keyboard. Gen X are shitty parents. There, I said it. Gen X was the party generation, there’s no denying that. Look, firstly each generation bitches about the next. Its nothing new. Secondly, millenials have shown the most concern with reversing the damage Boomers caused our environment. Remember, someone is going to have to change your diapers as you age. Don’t bother asking your children.


  3. As a millennial woman jet technician that gets harassed on a daily basis and is told to “close my legs cause it smells like fish”, and “go make me a sandwich”, and “don’t mess up, you’ll have to go back to the kitchen stove”. I can first handedly say that I agree with you when you say that everyone is a cry baby… I watch women and men whine about things on a daily basis my age, when they could just work harder and stop complaining and they’d be prouder of themselves. It makes me chuckle when people judge me when they meet me. I’m more powerful than you think I am 🙂


  4. Millennials are actually born from 1982-1997 (debateably up to only 1996, basically Millennial means the children of Baby Boomers) I’m almost certain you are confusing the whiny annoying Generation Z (Children of X’s with the much better millennials)

    Sources: I work as a manager at a toy store, and I’m a Millennial So I have alot of knowledge on the annoyingness of kids.


  5. I basically feel the same way, but when I was little I remember my parents and grandparents saying how hard they had and it and that we were a bunch of pussies. So I kind of feel like calling the next generation a bunch of pussies is standard, but I also kind of feel like they are totally gingatic pussies. I don’t know which one is true.

    Also, thanks for the pusillanimous beta. That’s good news.
