and soon you'll be done with your SJW/socialist phase also and you'll end up just like them
@007kingifrit Lol, dude, you don't even know what "socialist" means. And hell, if you think I'm an SJW, best stay away from the rest of the internet. I'm just a normal.
you're not normal at all, you're an uninformed candaian who doesn't know how to watch news properly you sjw love to change the definition of socialist all the time
The entire, “your generation...” thing has been with humans since there was a younger and older generation. Instill get the, “when you are my age...” bullshit... and sometimes from people younger than myself because I look young for my age. A 30 year old today thought for certain I was his age or maybe slightly younger as example. Which presents a different problem as some older SOB’s will talk down to you which in your head all the more leaves you wanting you to put your foot up their ass for the smug arrogance. This does however cut both ways. Arrogance exist on both ends of the age spectrum. Some older fee their bullshit is superior and some younger fee their bullshit is superior. Both examples are common on this site. Both examples are smug and completely pointless to engage in dialog as you yourself have discovered. My own age demographic, Gen-X are just as guilty of being bastards too, so age group is without its assholes. Screw ‘em.

Besides, I'm surrounded by immature people all the time, like people who get offended when I say that men and women might not be behaviorally identical. Even if I'm wrong, why are they giving so much of a damn? They're so immature, taking offense left and right over dumb shit and making a big deal out of everything.
The problem in my mind is that young people seemed to have conflated getting offended by everything with professionalism and maturity over learning how to let things slide. They lost the art of banter and taking things humorously (that doesn't mean only when you find things funny, it means learning to separate when someone isn't being serious). They've lost that. They wanna burn people at the stake who disagrees with their world views regurgitated to them in schools. So I'm insensitive towards those types. I think that's mature. They don't. We're at a crossroads. But I have no desire to live in a world of eggshells, and whiny brats, and people saying, "As a woman/gay/trans/male feminist, I'm so offended." I really don't give a shit, Goldilocks. Grow up.
As a caveat, I work in tech. PC police are abundant here. I don't see this sort of emotional sensitivity towards everyone's life problems as a solution to anything beyond stifling everyone's true opinions. And how are we supposed to get along if we can't even say what we truly feel and think to each other without filtering it? An emotionally mature person doesn't filter in my view. They say what they truly think and feel because they've learned enough through experience that this is how you make real friends, not fake friends who approve of the filtered and fake things you say with the goal of kissing ass.
You work in a tech field by the way? I've been really close to being James Damored.
@DemonInside get out of there bro!
@DemonInside Say what?
james damore was a google engineer who pointed out that there is a disparity between men and women in big tech that isn't purely down to discrimination. he was fired for this
@007kingifrit Are you 2 lost? What does this have to do with the question?
it has nothing to do with the question, that's what "by the way" means
@douride2 My bad, douride2. I work in tech and there was a Google engineer named James Damore who got fired for researching differences between men and women and writing a paper (with citations), on the differences he dug up. He wasn't even nearly as belligerent as me. I just wondered if you were used to dealing with the same thing from your answer. I've been so close to being in the same fate except for the fact that I was the leader of the project, but I got really close, and I had to go through some "sensitivity training" courses for some offhand jokes I made.
Those "sensitivity courses" have made me more belligerent than ever. I'm less afraid of pissing people off now (thanks, sensitivity courses). I no longer see the point of etiquette at all. I want to live in a universe where everyone just says whatever TF they think to each other since that seems like less of a hell to live in than this one.
I made a mistake. Sorry for rambling. It's just that I've had some other people on here say that this PC police problem is something we just imagined in our heads like it's not a big deal. And I'm like, "WTF?" I had to go through some bullshit sensitivity for some jokes that shouldn't even offend anyone but a kindergartener at my work. There is something real out there.
@DemonInside The sensitivity training. I had to go through the same type of BS course. What a laugh that was. They were trying to get me on some remarks I made. Trouble is you can't tell race by the pigment or lack there of in a persons skin.
Talk about envy.
Those born from 1946 to 1964 are considered boomers. So from the ages of 56 to 74 would be boomers. You were fairly close. ;)
@MannMitAntworten 1961 is a more common cutoff. As far as culture and lifestyle, even 1961 is pushing it. There was actually a small window from about 1960-65 that was pretty distinct and very different from boomers and gen X.
I was just going by the common statistical data collection dates. I know depending on which metric is used some statistical data collection collects Millennial data starting with 1977 or begin with 1982 with 1980 being the most common starting point. I also know that similar to the Baby Boomer generation’s having two distinct windows that the Millennial generation has the “Gen Y” and “Gen Z” which are distinct subsets within the larger Millennial generational label. The Boomers and the Millennials are the two largest generations since this labeling scheme became a thing with Generation X having been the smallest. Personally I have very few fellow “Gen X” friends which is more largely due to them having either died in accidents or from cancer or because they married and moved away and simply lost contact. Most of my friends are either Baby Boomers or Millennials. Frankly from my perspective those two generations are far more similar in words in actions and self proclaimed intellectual supremacy than either generation will ever care to admit. My own generation for me was always a mixed bag of being strangely subdue hippies and techie as we were the first generation to grow up with hole computers, home video games beyond “pong”, at will movie watching devices, paid television services which included early satellite, cel phones and so on. Equally we also grew up with all the things that all those things began to phase out or perhaps had just previously phased out such as the slide rule with the advent of Texas Instrument’s scientific calculators hitting the market in the 70’s. Which was interesting as my specific age group were never taught the slide rule yet were equally barred from being allowed to use calculators with our computations, “as this would be cheating”, so we were equally the generation who briefly existed in the dark ages where mathematics were concern - perhaps why math has taken a dive in the United States ever since and why educators in the...
... United States still struggle with blending technology with education to this day. I mean, a school provided Apple tablet or a laptop hardly makes a student “tech savvy” that us Americans seem to dilute ourselves into thinking. Hell the Germans and the Chinese kids can design the software and even the circuit boards to make that software viable whilst we get excited that American kids can figure out how to navigate the use if these digital devices - which are frankly intuitive by design. In other words even an idiot should be able to figure them out. Hell, that has always been the large selling point for all things Apple... that they are intuitive... but I digress.
Having a counselor or therapist isn't bad depending on what happened my counselor helps it's better to get help then not to
@Zhisad it might be better yea but the point i'm making is that millenials have normalized their extremely unhealthy mental states and that's why they all feel so comfortable shouting about it.I mean its not good to be in therapy at 13; life only gets harder so its not a good sign for the futurei think we spend too much time trying to nurture feelings nowadays and not enough time telling people "life is tough get over it" building resilience is important
I have a counselor for a pretty good reason but I see your point
love this reply
