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.


      1. Will he send you to school to fix your obviously shitty education? Trump is a fucking scumbag and just another example of his generations fucking problems. When they are all gone this world will be a better place. Nothing of value will be lost.


  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.


    1. Pablo, you’re incorrect about your statement about millennials showing the most concern about the damage. Late baby boomers and gen x’rs started the uphill battle and have met constant resistance. We’re the ones that were called crazy and discredited for coming up with the theory about climate change being a possibility. It’s through that determination that younger generations are aware. Some Gen x’rs may have partied but we also worked our asses off and started a shift, just like the generation before us did in the 60’s. I partied, but I put my self through school and paid for it all myself, graduated and fought for a job working in conservation and paid off my student loans.


  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.


  6. I love the discussion this article has started, however, instead of tearing each other down maybe we can support each other’s strengths and realize we are in this situation together. Millennials are not going away Gen Xers in fact they will out vote you soon enough. This fact highlights the importance of not discarding them as “snowflakes”. Reconsider the long term impacts of not showing compassion and understanding to these individuals as they need the Gen Xers to gently teach them how the world actually works….


      1. better yet your dumb ass will be dead soon enough and the most entitled pile of shit generation will be coming to an end. I for one will celebrate when the boomers are all gone. Good fucking riddance. Waaaaah we are getting out numbered by a smarter generation that has to work for a job instead of handed to them. Fucking assholes talk about how millennials are lazy yet we have to have an education to get the same kind of living that previous generations had dumped in their lap just because they passed high school. Open your crusty old eyes, the current generation is smarter and having to do more to get the things you took for granted. When you are gone this world will be a better place because the whiny entitled piles of shit holding the ones who matter back will be gone.


    1. I seriously doubt that they will ever out vote us. Voting takes effort and since we don’t elect people by hitting the like button, I’m not too concerned about being out voted.


      1. Hi superior millennial,
        Are you going to get mummy to subsidise you?
        Poor unpleasant little millennial.
        Go and work somewhere, hopefully somewhere you are serving me.
        You earn less than me and always will.
        Poor little millennial.
        You couldn’t stop trump or prevent brexit, but then cried when baby didn’t get their way.
        You are an awful generation of self righteous, unpleasant, whining babies who are so politically correct it is almost a parody.
        Hush silly little millennial, go and pay back your student loan, never mind your mum still loves you.
        Oh no silly me, she hates you too.


      2. Hate little tiny boring, cry baby, soft, self righteous, self obsessed, life owes me, horrid millennials. You are an awful generation, hopefully you will become extinct in your gender neutral clothes with your gender neutral leaders, all drinking herbal tea and extolling the fact you are not conscious of race, or sexuality. You are truly atrocious, telling people to treat each other nice, whilst bullying people who have differing views. Marching against what has happened with democratic voting. Using hashtags like #notmy , poor you they are. He is your president, she is our prime minister, we are leaving the EU. Even with lily Allen poking her nose into every self righteous cause. Lol, when you come crying, noone will be listening, everyone together#selfrighteoushideouswhinymillenials lol


      3. Actually asshole old sour people. Millennials only encompass those born from 1982/1983-1996/1997
        (Depending on highschool grad year, class of 2016 is not Millennials).
        The generation Z is more into # than us and at that only the younger millennials are into the # trend along with asshole hipsters everyone hates. How would you like it if I called 80s style applying to all of you, kind of rude right, yeah go fuck yourself.


      4. Most of us are in our mid-late 20s to mid 30s. We are actually pretty cool. We agree that younger kids (gen Z) can be kind of annoying. This article I actually think is referring to them but morons seem to not know the difference between Millennials and Z and loop us together much to our disapointment.


  7. To a defender,
    Did you want mummy to tuck you up, poor little sausage.
    That response has made me smile, #20-30arealsowhiny
    Wàaaaaah, that is you crying
    Do you want to make a placard and go on a march
    #notmyadefender lol


    1. I am amazed how lame you are. I may not be a crybaby; However, I’d much rather be a wee “sausage” at my mum’s breast than be any bit like a loser such as yourself.


  8. damn fuckin right millennials suck! their kids suck even more! it kinda goddamn sucks to have to live in a society where people got pissed just for breathing out of the wrong side of your nose. i ain’t saying all millennials suck, some are actually quite cool. most millennials however, damn suck! also, so many young people are so damn fuckin dumb. these goddamn fuck ups can’t even find africa on a map or tell you how many stars there are in the american flag! what the fuckin hell! these damn bastards can’t even write their name, or know where to put a stamp on an envelope. i feel sorry for teachers! today’s society demands them to treat kids like premadonnas and let them rum amuck in class. it damn sucks when teachers are treated like shit by bratty ass fuck ups and nobody gives a fuck. woe to the teacher who gets their ass kicked just for doing their job. further more, we don’t punish these badass fuck ups when their behavior sucks. where there fuck’s the discipline? finally, most young people have no taste! damn fuck the young!


    1. Most Millennials don’t have kids yet, if if they do, those kids are like two. Generation X is 1957-1981/1982
      Millenials are 1982/1983-1996/1997
      Most people born in the late 80s and 90s don’t have kids yet so I don’t see how you could hate them that much… yet.


  9. Fuck dem pussies and don’t call them after! haha how’s that for sexist. Fuck them niggers… oh my so racist of me…. fuck them wet backs oh noes. Bunch of crybabies. Get over yourselves.
