“DON’T CALL US SNOWFLAKES”

By Pete Moore On December 6th, 2017

Say snowflakes.

The “snowflake generation” is a disparaging term now commonly used to refer to young people, who are perceived to be over-sensitive and intolerant of disagreement.

But research by insurance firm Aviva found that 72 per cent of 16-24 year-olds think the term is unfairly applied, while 74 per cent think it could have a negative effect on young people’s mental health.

My grandad spent his youth strangling Japs in the jungle. A few generations later, thanks to comprehensive uneducation and liberalism, people his age think a bit of joshing will cause them mental harm. It sounds like they already are mental, the delicate darlings.

The future’s going to be so great.

  1. But research by insurance firm Aviva found that 72 per cent of 16-24 year-olds think the term is unfairly applied, while 74 per cent think it could have a negative effect on young people’s mental health.

    Quick, rush to a “safe-space”.

  2. I know plenty of people that age who are smart and tough and who give as good as they get.

    The snowflake phenomenon is real but exaggerated

  3. agreed phantom in fact there are many a elderly bloke who displays the same sort rash hysteria when confronted, or shown a mirror. I’d say the youth are cooler over all , and the aged who should be mellow , rush off the handle , plenty evidence on this site by grown men acting like children .. be they : whiney whiteys, oafish bumpkins, paranoid trailer-park men etc . keep your council , be powerful by keeping your love on = best advice you can get 🙂

  4. be they : whiney whiteys,

    Racist bigot.

  5. Racist bigot.

    doesn’t work Harri, think about it? your riposte makes no sense
    because the comment “whiney whitey” is not in the category of rascist bigot
    look up categories, classes , sub-division on google ..
    this is where you need to up your game
    or can continue to make a fool of yourself with the English language, up to you .
    Try again farmer giles , you talking with the city boys now 🙂

  6. allan tried to school you on another thread did you read it?
    he said “jude is your ‘anti-fascist’ with all the baggge that carries ”
    so it would make more sense to hit me on liberalism etc … do you see?

  7. Oh stop being such a sourpuss. 😁

  8. wise-up Harri , play the game, I’m fine , its you whiney whiteys that spoil the fun with your piss poor comments , badly researched articles. sloppiness and disregard for facts/truth.
    so boring, can never get into a good debate with you, cos ya such a shctik ..

  9. its you whiney whiteys

    Racist bigot .😁

  10. that spoil the fun

    I don’t think you would no “fun” even it come up and smacked you around the chops.

    Cheer up son. 😁

  11. *know

  12. As much fun as this maybe, and as entertainment as you are to me Jude, I have stuff to do.

    You do make oi larf though. 😁😁😁

  13. As a child my only safe space was the air-raid shelter, and even that didn’t come with a guarantee. I hate to think what would happen to our current university generation if they were made to join in the Services or be directed into a job without choice.

    The future’s going to be so great.

    Yet in many other posts, you bemoan that the future is going to be terrible and that you can’t wait for the asteroid to strike. Make up your mind Pete. Oh wait! Sorry mate I forgot you talk inconsistent bollocks all the time. Carry on.
