You know you had a Catholic upbringing when somebody says “May the force be with you” and your instant reaction is to reply with “And also with you”.
All the damn time
“Here are some broad descriptions about the generation known as Millennials: They’re narcissistic. They’re lazy. They’re coddled. They’re even a bit delusional.
Those aren’t just unfounded negative stereotypes about 80 million Americans born roughly between 1980 and 2000. They’re backed up by a decade of sociological research. The National Institutes of Health found that for people in their 20s, Narcissistic Personality Disorder is three times as high than the generation that’s 65 or older. In 1992, 80 percent of people under 23 wanted to one day have a job with greater responsibility; ten years later, 60 percent did. Millennials received so many participation trophies growing up that 40 percent of them think they should be promoted every two years – regardless of performance. They’re so hopeful about the future you might think they hadn’t heard of something called the Great Recession.”
Well, they’re right about the “save us all” part, anyway.
Okay, like…what total fucking assholes. Actually we HAVE heard of the Great Recession! In fact, that’s WHY we live with our parents! And I don’t actually know ANYONE in that age bracket who is optimistic about the future. And I’m not sure how wanting a job with greater responsibility makes you narcissistic. My last job was as a barista. You’re telling me I shouldn’t want a job with greater responsibility than making coffee and being nice to people when they were mean? And none of the people I have ever worked with EXPECTED to get promoted regardless of performance. They either didn’t care about being promoted, or they expected to get promoted by working hard to show that they were more competent than everyone else.
Go fuck yourself, Time.
P.S. Want millenials to stop thinking about themselves so much? Then maybe you should make Syria or Bangladesh the cover story instead of whining about how your kids are annoying.
Wow fuck you Time. Then again Time hasn’t criticized the negative effects of the Baby Boomer generation on our society as much as some others have so this isn’t surprising.
Reblogging because that Matt Bors response linked above is amazing and worth reading.
Thank you Matt Bors.
Go fuck yourself, Time Magazine. Preferably with a rusty knife or a cactus. “So hopeful about the future it’s like they haven’t heard of the Great Recession”, huh? Let me tell you how fucking hopeful I am about the future. I hope that a meteor flies down and puts me out of my job hunting misery, or that I can find some job with regular hours. I don’t even care if I like it. There’s some hope for you, you piece of shit.
I was so lazy I went and got my college degree right after high school just like the adults always said to do. And now I’m jealous of the guy I see on ‘How It’s Made’ whose job it is to hand-stuff olives all day. So much for “Go to college and get a good job.”
Oh, no this fucking shit again. Time should really apologize to a whole generation. I’m lazy and coddled? Tell that to my now (going on) 18 years of education, two degrees, multiple jobs and internships, while still balancing a personal life and relationship. Lazy is totally me! -__-
I agree with everything that has been said. Many young people want to get away from parents and move out, but have you SEEN apartment costs if you don’t want to live in an unhygienic hovel? What about increased medication and food costs? Entry level jobs that, for even someone like me who will have two degrees, cannot even touch with a 10 foot pole.
Yes, there are probably some lazy bastards out there, but don’t lump an entire cluster together. We are the first generation who will have it worse than their parents. How about we write about that instead?
White men as props and accessories? I dig it!
Well, this is a lovely change!
Well, at least I didn’t have to say it. No, wait:
“… to a black woman.”
*briskly dusts off hands*
There we go.
Imagine the uproar if these kinds of pictures were shown in magazines all the time. But nobody bats a fucking eyelid when we do it to women. Everyone (men (white men)) would be up in arms about ~misandry~ and hypersexualization, but do these dudebro MRAs care that women are subjected to this type of imagery /reversed/ in our own magazines on every second goddamn page? Didn’t think so.
THAT is why these images showing the reversal is important. Dudes will cry “you won’t get people to join your cause if you respond to degradation of your gender by degrading another gender” - no, fuck you. We are sick of the constant hypersexualization, and one photoset relieving us of our plight that makes you uncomfortable is NOTHING compared to what we deal with every day.
You don’t realize the full extent of what is being done until the opposite is shown and breaks through your social programming.
There is nothing I do not love about this.
These photos are lovely too. I love the way they’re shot and set up.
except no guy really cares about this being insulting to men or anything…
Since Whose Line is coming back we might as well bring this picture back too.
yes i support gay rights yes i would care if you died no i’m not going to reblog that post
yes i’m glad david karp made this website no i will not call him daddy
Person A and Person B are in a car together. They get into an accident.
Person A has a small scratch on their hand. Person B has a piece of the dashboard going through their rib cage, can barely breathe, is bleeding from the stomach, the head and has had their arm ripped off completely.
Six rescue workers arrive on the scene.
Three workers help Person A. Three workers help Person B.
This is a rad analogy.
Even though it was a fairly boring case in the end, Sherlock and John had a pretty fun day out.
