are you guys still going on about that. its not even about the video, that is not even the point of the post, that was just for prof you don't have to click it. you don't have to sit threw the whole video. I saw about 5 seconds of it and I was done. i didn't force you 2 watch that you could have closed the tab like i did when i saw it. it made me sick to my stomach when i saw it as it should make you. its a universal reaction. it makes you unconformable that good. just imagine how that person felt in the video and nothing will be done for them. it makes be beyond angry that stuff like this is happening all over the world all the time. and there nothing i can do. and nobody does anything about it everyone just try to ignore it because it not personally happening to them. I posted this to start the conversation. i didn't just post this on CR i posted on many other forms through out the internet. just to see what would happen. maybe someone has an idea on how to solve this issue I thought. but no i got the pretty much same response from everyone. people just get mad focus all about the video ignore what happening. nobody cares, and it deeply saddens me. people take bits and parts of what is said and twist it. it's a serious issue that needs to be addressed and how it can be prevent. i wanted to see if anyone had any ideas before this gets more out of hand. we see what is going on Europe and the rest of the world, what are we going to do with all these refugees. what's going on in America dude, the ban on Muslims from entering the USA. it's like world war 2 is starting all over again. and yet people just want to ignore it. what happen to people having the ability to practicing their religion with out being oppressed. this is the land of the free america. instead humanity just keeps repeating history and making the same mistakes over and over again. read the whole post. I wasn't trolling man. it wasn't even my intentions. I meet a few people today that insisted that this is not going on in the world. or that believe that is ok and justified, when it is not. The same people who said the holocaust didn't happen, who think this kind of stuff is ok. who believe this is justified. sometimes people need to see these kind of things to feel that emotion so they get and do something instead of doing nothing these are how conversations are started. if people are just going to censer things like this nobody will know.

TL:DR
But grats on doing your own writing, (I'm hoping you didn't steal that terribly structured word salad).

You realize that there are millennials who are well into their 30s....

True to that, Gen Z and Gen Alpha are what everyone keeps referring to as millenniums

I get what your saying OP, but you didn't handle this right. Just let it die. Maybe next time.

And dude, what was up with that onslaught of a paragraph? Nobody's going to read that.

Not to sound totally rude, just that you've gone from "Your Feelings Are Largely Irrelevant" to "This Makes Me Sad".

You underestimate the awareness of modern day society, especially of millennials. We live in the "Information Age" - where all sorts of information, good and bad, is accessible just with a few clicks of the mouse and taps of the keyboard.

The ironic thing is that "millennials" have become a "bad thing" because they voice their opinions. Why is that ironic? Simply because the baby boomers (who are generally the ones complaining about millennials more than other generations) were the ones who dealt with the Vietnam War - they protested against it, they voiced their concerns, and the generation before them called them crybabies. Those who are actually millennials, probably like yourself, are against their own generation simply because they're tired of the "politically correct world" that goes against the grain of what was instilled in them as a child. It's a circular logic that happens in every generation - the following generation needs to "man up", "deal with it", "get over it", etc.

In other words, it's a moot point. Whoever wrote the article is either someone dreadfully annoyed with having to "tip toe" around millennials who have a hair-trigger emotional response to certain things. This is why there's a slew of people that have birthed hatred against "PC Culture" - they've been taught that it's not that bad in life, that you can handle whatever you're given. The funny thing here is that the baby boomers and their children are the ones who taught millennials to be this way. "You can be anything you want - this is America!" or "You're special because you're the only you!" or whatever key phrase that your parents told you while growing up. You can't complain when you're the one that created the "monster" - yet, baby boomers do this all the time because they feel they're "special". That there's something "unique" about them because they were able to buy a house with a single income while working for minimum wage or that "knowing who to speak to" became a thing to make getting a job easier than ordering fast food in their era.

Nobody's special. We're all just emotional beings that try to justify our emotional responses in some way or another. Baby Boomers, Generation X, Millennials ... three generations of people believing they're special for some unsightly reason. It goes farther back, really. The only difference is the culture encouraging and reinforcing the "special snowflake" mentality.

Baby boomers and generation x wanna write articles all day long about how lazy millennials are, but then don't use their smartphones for anything besides Facebook.

If we are going to add anything to the list, let us make is "Other's feelings are not irrelevant". Politeness and being cordial to everyone is appropriate in all situations, and while you may not accept their view, while it would be Richard Spencer spouting white supremacist material or a overzealous Dworkin Feminist regarding sex as inherently oppressive of women, it would be best to tolerate them to an extent. Some acts of tolerance are codified in our laws. Tolerance being "You cannot kill them, harass them, or beat them". Acceptance is a a different but related concept. Besides accepting that you must tolerate them, you do not have to say "I think you are right".

In any case, this internet trolling bullshit you see on right wing millenials and Gen 2000s is as disturbing as anything a regressive leftist would come up with. Let us not pretend it doesn't have consequences, as Ghostbusters 2016 and possibly The Fappening has demonstrated.

When someone mistakes politeness for political correctness, it irks me. This counterculture of not caring about anyone else's feelings over your right to say what you want is fallacious. Just because you have a legal right to say something does not give you a moral claim to do so.

It is rooted in a Milo-esque psychopathy and you people need to grow up and stop reading Breitbart. I did.

You sound like someone trying to compensate for your shortcomings and insecurities. Not that I disagree with the points mentioned but you probably convinced yourself that every Millenial or at least the majority of them (us?) actually fit the caricature liberal that lives inside your hollow mind. I suppose this makes it easier to have someone to look down on? As someone who has formal training and experience in counseling and mental health, I'd strongly advice you to do a bit of introspection before reposting things like this. I understand that it "speaks" to your worst and most irrational tendencies but do yourself a favor and hit your mental breaks once in a while.

Take that as a harsh reality you need to understand.

Looks like you're trashing your own thread, and multiposting as you've been warned about before. I'm locking it for now until I can deal with it more properly and decide if it's worth cleaning up and keeping open.

Millennials.


I decided to close this. If it were just the issue of the opening post being entirely content copied from elsewhere, I'd just ask to have that clarified, and for you to add a bit of your own content, and something to help initiate discussion.

However, so much of the thread was centered around the fact that the opening post was material copied from elsewhere, include almost an entire page of your posts all in a row mocking people for their concern about that, and so little of the thread was actual discussion about the ideas presented in opening post, that it made the most sense to close it.

Please feel free to start a new thread about similar ideas, but with more of your own opinion presented up front, in a way that encourages others to share their own opinions (don't just "soapbox.") Please do also credit, and put into quote tags, any content you copy from elsewhere (if it's long, use a spoiler tag as well.)

Finally, about the multi-posting -- Please don't make multiple posts all in a row. If yours is the last post in the thread and you have something to add or need to change something, click "Edit" in your existing post and then just make the change or additions there. If you want to respond to several posts from other people, then click the checkbox in each post you want to respond to, then click "Quote selected" at the bottom of the page, and add your responses there.
