(D)Ummies see emotionally fragile Nation

Read this early this morning and then found that Hypersensitive Victim Island did, too.
A good read.  Here:

Are we becoming an emotionally fragile nation?

Interesting article in Psychology today about the emotional fragility among college Millenials and their inability to cope with every day problems and run of the mill life difficulties. (....)

After which, (D)Ummie  pastes most of the article.

1. Yes, we are

And it starts in infancy.

Helicopter parents, zero tolerance in schools, constant bombardment about life's dangers, coddling to the point where they can't play tag, excessive worries about hurt feelings...

We are raising a nation of neurotics.

We?

These kids are in for one hellacious shock when they get out into an asshole-filled real world that is not completely filtered and pre-digested so as not to "hurt" their pwecious widdle feewings.

2. My first thought was "yes!". But that might be considered by some to be a

"microagressive" response...

Doesn't even register with these organisms.

5. Parents and schools used to prepare kids to deal with life

Now they are just taught to complain about the unfairness of it all and not accept responsibility for their own destinies.

From the infants that consider personal responsibility to be a trigger warning, or some such shit.

51. Yeah, right.

I'm sure it has nothing to do with old people filling their heads with a bunch of bullshit about being anything they want if the "try hard enough".

8. When I was at college

everyone was somehow able to handle "microaggressions" without neverending "trigger warnings".

Heh!  ......and you're still an idiot?  Imagine that.

11. There have been societal issues since time began

The difference is in the messages we are instilling in our kids from an early age.

What is this "we" shit, (D)oUchebag?


Dunning and Krueger, both weigh in:

16. Are these examples indicative of the average call to a counseling center?

Are these examples indicative of the average call to a counseling center, or merely outliers used to illustrate a point?

I imagine today's college youths are no more and no less fragile and no more nor no less tough than any generation prior. Though no doubt, many of the older generation will myopically call them pampered and rationalize that hasty generalization wholly on anecdotal evidence.


Now, where would they get THAT idea..............

Liberal thinking is a two-legged stool and magical thinking is one of the legs, the other is a combination of self-loating and misanthropy.  To understand it, you would have to be able to sit on that stool while juggling two elephants, an anvil and a fragmentation grenade, sans pin.

I'm convinced of two things:

1. You will never try hard enough

2. You will never be anything other than a nothing.

Yes but only because of evil people that can use it to profit, better known as the democrat party elite.

I've made millenials breakdown, males, by accurately and unabashedly critiquing their performance. When a feminist gives me shit a nice "**** off you fat ugly ****." works real well to shut them up.

BS away but you know I'm right. It is for their own good. Years later one of those fragile and special female snowflakes will make something of herself and remember the asshole that said that to her.

The democrats have at last bred the generation that will not rise up to oppose their planned tyranny.

9. I know I'm pretty emotionally fragile

I can't imagine being a young person today. There's almost nothing to look forward to except bad shit, e.g., climate change, school shootings, war, famine, economic collapse, a lifetime of being overworked and underpaid, etc. And going to school on top of all that?? I don't know how ANYone can cope with all that.

Oh brother.  Off yourself, you stupid waste of oxygen.   :loser:

Some DUmmies have some self awareness of the problem, but won't admit it's the liberals who caused it.  Here's another snowflake:

48. I have a nephew who

went to Portugal to work on an organic farm for just room and board. His helicopter mom, my youngest sister, couldn't understand why. My nephew told me he had to get away from the hand wringers. Her 24 year old daughter lives at home and doesn't go to school or work. She doesn't even have a driver's license because the thought of driving makes her nervous. I don't know what will become of her.

Fortunately both of her sons were able to break free.

That's my theory as to why we are currently up to our eyeballs in liberals.  They aren't killing themselves off like they used to, no more "natural selection" taking place in the amounts needed ('cept Chicago, Baltimore, DC, Ferguson, Detroit, and various other liberal run shitholes) to prevent us from being overrun with them.
Murphy's 3rd Law:  "You can't make anything 'idiot DUmmie proof'.  The world will just create a better idiot DUmmie."

Liberals are like Slinkys.  Basically useless, but they do bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs...
