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

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

imgres-1

 

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?!

TEACHERS ARE AFRAID TO DO THEIR FREAKING JOBS BECAUSE YOU’RE SO DAMN DELICATE?!

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.

you.

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. I’ll tell a nigger (Yes. I used a racial slur that’s popularly glorified in urban music because if it’s ok for some it’s okay for all.) I fucked his mom, sister, girlfriend, and if I’m really feeling randy, his grandmother, whip that old cunt taut with my dick and not give a fuck. I’d have really done it too. Hell, just the other day I called a couple of gooks racist and said it was because it was typical how they seem to date each other and not outside their race. I’ll say whatever the fuck I wish.

  4. This blog seems to be all about speaking out against questionable societal “norms”, yet this post falls right into a giant trap of herd mentality by labeling an entire generation with a series of bullshit adjectives (crybaby, entitled, etc). I am a millennial, but I am none of these things.

    Every generation complains about the next; people often complain about their own generation. Yet every generation is responsible for the one that comes after it and seems to be enthralled with listing its shortcomings. PLEASE! What a load of hypocrisy!

    Don’t get caught up in the hype…help define what your generation is, don’t allow others (i.e. older people who spawned this generation in the first place) to tell you what you are and try to blame you for it. It’s absurd.

    Maybe the correct question to ask is this:
    When did generation naming (and, consequently, generation bashing) even become a thing? How is that helpful in any way?

    To me, it sounds like an excuse for people to bitch about being complacent while they, their friends, and their family raised children who were not accountable to anyone but themselves. Is that a generational problem? No. It’s an accountability problem. Stop complaining and start fixing it.

The kids that she goes to school with are just like you and she laughs at them. They can’t do anything hard or cry and moan if it gets tough or they think someone doesn’t like them. Just like you, it’s not them , it’s always someone else’s fault. Grow up.

      1. @ Ray,

        You’re missing a huge point:

        The article title contains the words “we’re RAISING…”. Like it or not, that implies the onus of all of the things the author complained about in the article really lies with the parents, relatives, teachers, society that raised the kids.

        Many parents groomed their millenial kids to be everything mentioned in this article. That’s the problem. To then point at millenials as the source of the problem is…well about as unsuccessful as the grammar in your original response.

        I advocate this:
        For all you millenials about to have your own children, instill in them some backbone, do not let them believe the victimhood crap, teach accountability and (most importantly) teach them some discipline. We can’t afford more whiners and victims in this country.

    3. Accountability! That’s the nail on the head point there. I, as a father of 2 and step dad to my deceased wife of 2 more and my 2nd wife step dad to another. I am dad essentially to 5 kids ranging 18-8. And you know what? Not a single one of them are these stereotypes millenial whiny babies. I refuse to let them feel like a victim over words. I was teased and bullied from 4th grade when my best friend was asked by another friend of his, “Are you really friends with Clinton?” To which he replied no!!! Thus ending our friendship. And that never stopped throughout high school. It was a daily bashing of me in every possible way. It hurt. A lot actually. But it never deterred me from my goals. Enlisted in the military. Made E6. Despite a career ending injury that’s not important to this tag, I was bombarded regularly with these shit talkers and I learned to accept insults and beat downs verbally as a tool to improve myself. When my boss said. “Dude you’re fucking too damn slow with wiring the bombs, you fucking suck as a 2-man”. I didn’t cry, I spent a few extra hours at “sorry for the lingo” Load Barn for a few weeks. And improved and became good at what I do. Insults never hurt me to the core to the point I needed a time out or safe zone. And said Accountability!! Was what happened. If I sucked at my job, I got better till I didn’t suck! Not throw a tantrum and cry unfair!!!! We all know life ain’t fair. That’s for sure. And my experiences have countless stories to my 5 children to show empathy, and build them up from failures. So, in conclusion, I could complain about others, and complain about how millenials are pussy bitches. But accountability says as a mid 30s dad to 5 kids, it’s my job to make sure they never fall into a whiny unfair tantrum of a life. After all. Our generation X folks are the breeders of the said pussies of today’s millenials. So it honestly isn’t their fault, it’s ours! Try being a better parent! And take accountability for your worth nothing pussy thin skinned children that you created! Thank You

This other group is pissed on account of so much back child support owed, all those White racist men who sold meth, and dope back in the later part of the 80’s. along with the multitude of incarcerations ; Where were those fathers that these well grown up individuals needs when they were being shuffled from grandparent and the system? To busy turning queer and not worrying about their own children .that is where those men were . That they feel its the fault of the millennials.” No way, instead of running amuck on dope, they should have invested more into their education and less into the criminal elements of what these so called “other groups ” provided.” Cattle is what they were trying to set every up for back in those days. Nothing more. Aldrous huxley, read his books. You might learn a few things. instead of this internet Horseshit.

Pussycat has been used in history as a term of endearment to women, a term meant to humiliate effeminate men, a term for female genitalia, and of course, an affectionate term for an actual cat. 😉

  9. You see, here’s the thing – millennials are more stressed than previous generations. Real average income for 18-30 year olds has never been lower in American history – and that includes the great depression. We also have to compete against essentially more college students for fewer jobs than in the prior generation. While all C’s in a B.S. degree might have gotten you a decent job after school, you also could pay for that degree with a part-time from MacDonalds. Even completing my M.S. in Finance with a 3.82, I am not even qualified for a managerial position at most retailers. So yes, C’s give those students working 2-3 jobs collecting massive debt twitchy eye. The teachers should suck it up.

  15. Pussy is a word used as a shortened form of pusillanimous and does mean timid.
    An English term of abuse was “scaredy-cat” which was thrown at cowards.
    From this it became “pussycat” and then shortened further in the US as “pussy”.
    In England we preferred the term “Cissy” – same derisory affect, “cissy” came to mean “effeminate” (timid like a woman) and was used as an alternative to “poof” which became lost as the word “gay” rose in popularity.
    I was a war gamer – and “pussy” was used to imply “coward” in a battle, which supports it being the shortened form of pusillanimous.

    1. Are you fuckin’ blind?! Part of being an intelligent adult is to be careful about how one behaves to others. If no one can do that, she or he can have her or hiss handed to her or him.

  17. Ms. Rachel Foote, I love you. This is by far the most accurate description of the cry-baby, safe-space needing, cry-in attending millennial generation that is plaguing our great nation. I applaud your “no holds bar” style of writing and saying it as it is, the truth. Continue in your honest speaking blogs. I, for one, am a huge fan after reading this particular article.

  18. Hi, Rachel Foote, please read my comment.
    I need to say that in my opinion, what you said does not apply to ALL millennials, and it does apply to some non-millennials too. I think how a child is raised and how their character develops greatly depends on their living conditions, financial status, what privileges they have and the environment outside that they are mostly exposed to when growing up as well. It’s not fair to completely stereotype millenials to this extent, while being so rude about it. It’s your choice whether to be rude about something or not, I can’t stop you, but I think if you’re going to write about something like this, it’s only fair that you actually be more specific on who you are addressing. I’m a millenial and I didn’t find this offensive because I don’t really care plus I know the struggles I, my siblings and my parents have gone through, I don’t need anyone to tell me, and I know what else I have to go through and be thick-skinned about to be successful and to make the world a better place (I know, cheesy but I do mean it, I want to help us once I’m done helping myself.)
    So yeah, point is, I’m not offended but I felt the need to give you my opinion because this aricle was stereotypical and unfairly written. Hope you read this, thanks if you did. Hola to everyone else reading this haha ok bye.

  19. Generation crybaby? Who has been fighting two unjustified wars in the middle east? Who has been entering the job market when the previous generations have let this countries manufacturing crumble, and let the politicians create an American Aristocracy? When I talk to older generations about the ideological or philosophical ramifications of their willful ignorance, they ignore me, they’d rather be force fed sound bites by the TV media, before switching to ESPN. Most of my peers are working their asses off in the corrupt financial market (and they know it) because these are some of the few jobs left worth entering, if you want to make a good living. The previous generations have left us with a shit show of a country, and have now elected as president, a man that embodies all of the attributes they claim to hate about the millennials. Wake up you old, poorly educated, lazy, pieces of shit. When the flood of hypocritical garbage flows out of your mouth, thanks to the wealth of knowledge my generation had the luxury of tapping into during our formative years, you clearly come across as spiteful, cranky, and out of touch. I spent two and a half years in Baghdad, put myself through the best culinary school in the country, and currently finishing my last semesters at Rutgers for a degree in microbiology, all paid for by my own efforts, all set up by my own lazy millennial self. In September I leave for Nigeria in the peace corp to help with efforts to supply rural villages with clean water supplies. But hey, all these old, internet bloggers tell me my generation is worthless.

    Heres an expression, often used in the military to help idiots realize the effective way to motivate or inspire their subordinates.

    “Lead from the front”

    or perhaps you’d be more comfortable with

    “Sit in your chair and complain about others, without doing anything constructive, because theyre lazy, not me…..”

  20. I understand where you’re coming from. I’ve noticed this difference in us as well. I think that there are more than a few reasons as to why we have become so weak as a generation.

    Consider the fact that the environment we experienced growing up in this country was different than the one our parents grew up in. For example, we experienced the rapid growth and implementation of technology. Also, we experienced a higher dosage of programming from video games, movies, and the Internet. The music and entertainment industry began to pump out lower minded shows, movies, and music. (i.e. spongebob, ed edd eddie, the co-opting of rap music, rock music, and anything else that had the power to influence millions of people also co-opted to drag us down into a lower state of mind, etc) When observations such as yours and mine are made I think answers are needed. There are many reasons that all factor into us being this way as a collective, and more or less as individuals. The key, if one cares, is to identify the reasons why, and come up with a solution. Because we aren’t the end of it. The younger generations will get worse forms of culture, food, and social engineering via school and their peers.

  23. This made my day; I agree with every single thing stated. (The tidbit about the roots of “pussy” was good too.)

    It sucks how salty and butt-hurt people get about things that are either a) non-existent, b) not offensive, c) doesn’t affect them, or d) all of them. They claim everything they don’t like is “misogynistic, racist, xenophobic, oppressive, anti-life, anti-love, sexist, fascist, [any word with “-ist” on it]”. All they want is privilege. For everything to handed over to them as if they live in the USSR. That’s not how the world works. You work for me, I pay you. You bitch about the work calling it every profane word you can find, you’re fired and I don’t pay you. You have to make yourself USEFUL, THEN you can have fun. In the real world, participation awards don’t exist. They make you feel better about being a fuck and don’t let you learn that you WILL lose unless you improve. Success in life is about incentives and rewards, and rewards come at a price.

    And what the hell is up with millennials trying to block out non-liberal-extremist opinions? They say they’re super tolerant, but they basically think thoughts on the level of genocidal and launch a barrage of false claims and insults the moment you say something they don’t like. This is what happens when a generation is sheltered: they fucking bitch about anything they’ve never been exposed to before and don’t consider new ideas at all and they think the First Amendment only applies to them. They’ve even been on the level of assault because one person had a minor disagreement with them. They act like they know their shit when they don’t. I’m fucking afraid to voice my opinion in public because I’m afraid some little pussy will gain the desire to smash my skull in with the gun they want to ban.

    (Watch as 999,999,999.99 people start calling me the dumbest shit.)

  24. “Not ever criticism is an attack on your character”

    I loved how you put that. I often find myself being accused of intolerance for being dismissive over certain traits or habits. It’s almost as if these people believe simply criticizing undesirable behavior somehow restricts people’s rights to be autonomous. It’s delusional and keeps any real conversation from ever happening. I wrote a similar post about this on my own blog you might enjoy to read!

  25. So this article is very interesting to me. No where did the author source any actual statistics, her basis is an over generalization of a generation, and she does nothing to help millennials by complaining and whining about them herself. I am considered a Millenial and I am tired of people like this write crap and use it as a basis for facts. You are no better than the fake news sources sprouting out of facebook.

  29. Well at least, Rachel, you are one of the few people who are willing to point out the obvious. From a gen x point of view, the new generations need to have a teaspoon of concrete and harden the fuck up.

    There are so many of them wondering around who have no coping mechanisms for disappointment and failure. I was told growing up that, the day you stop trying is the day you fail. In the workplace, you don’t agree with someone, you talk it out and move on. No. These days you whinge about them, behind their back, back stab them, and lodge a grievance about them. All over some bullshit that should have been resolved face to face.

    The level of gutlessness is incredible. If you don’t have the guts to say it to the persons face, then shut your hole. Cyber bullying is out of control. There are so many people who think that they have the right to do anything they want. Yes freedom of speech is ours but we have always told out kids, just because you think it doesn’t mean you have to say it. there is a time and place for everything.

    Manners seem to be like an indicator on a car, an optional extra. How fucking hard is it to say please, thank you or excuse me. Walking in front of someone and saying sorry is not the same as saying excuse me.

    I will leave i there because there is so much more that I could say. All in all a nice piece Rachel.

  30. Haha you guys all sound like a bunch of crying whiny millennials yourselves.

    I’m in the no mans land. Too old to be a millennial and too young to be gen x.

    I’ll tell you one thing though. I’ve worked with a lot of boomers over the years and they are just as whiny and entitled as millennials only worse because they think just by virtue of surviving to be 65 they deserve a fucking cookie.

    I can’t tell you how much time I’ve had to spend at work explaining computers, printers, emails, and cell phones to the technologically inept boomer generation. Maybe you dumb fucks have to work 50-70 hours a week because you’re too fucking slow. Ever think of that?

    If your response to this is to say boo hoo I didn’t grow up with computers then you’re just as bad as the millennials.

    These kids should be pissed. The boomer generation sold them a heaping helping of bullshit. There’s a whole industry of higher education built on the backs of these young kids and the older generation is laughing all the way to the bank. My generation was probably the last one to be able to go to college for a somewhat reasonable price and these 18 year olds today are paying a ton to make shit money when they get out. Banks, the government, colleges, and the college support industry are all raking in the dough while these dumbass kids put themselves in debt.

    Meanwhile the rest of us In the work force have to listen to a bunch of dried up old ass boomers piss and moan about pc culture and millennials because they have nothing better to do or because they’re sitting around twiddling their fucking thumbs waiting for someone to come help them set up their Netflix or send a email or getting tricked by some fucking story about the pope endorsing Trump.

    Boo fucking hoo older generation get a hold of yourselves you aren’t some fucking magical generation. You’re a bunch of crying, slow to adapt babies who can’t adjust to change. These are your fucking kids, if they suck it’s your fault.

    This author is totally right and for you to ask for references as a reader on someone’s opinion shows just how uneducated most of this pussy filled generation is. OPINIONS DON’T NEED REFERENCES!
    The fact is this millennial generation is ruining people with insane ideas about race, sexuality, and absolutely anything else they can put a rose colored tint to.
