Grow The Fuck Up Already...

RE: Grow The Fuck Up Already...
If millenials did not have triggered emotional crises then they would not need bleeding heart administrators and professors to protect them.

I remember my favorite teacher in high school being reprimanded for being too hard on failing students. ( This was the '70s) She responded "Oh yes, we must protect their little psyches!" I still love that woman!

I'm guessing they don't.  They're not exactly coddling themselves, so much as being coddled.  Look at mommy and daddy. Our sensitivities are cultural, a set of learned behaviors regarding what is and is not appropropriate..the discomfort reaction to taboo is generated by it;s foreign or alien nature, by our unfamiliarity. We don't manufacture it personally and privately.

OTOH, the crucifixion belongs in the same category as the faces of death movies, so, if we're gonna put trigger warnings on anything, some shit about nailing a jew to a piece of wood is a sensible candidate. What's the worst hat could happen, sensitive little christers might realize that they've been beating it to murder pron?
Eat em up beat em up then switch sides.

Quote:Are millennials too sensitive?

Quote:Theology students at a prestigious U.K. university were warned they may witness disturbing images when reading about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The University of Glasgow in Scotland introduced the ‘trigger warnings’ for students taking the class "Creation to Apocalypse: Introduction to the Bible (Level 1)."

Quote:Trigger warnings were introduced to warn people of content that could trigger emotional distress. In certain cases, students are allowed to leave the lecture and professors are instructed to check up on the student later in the day.

Jesus fucking christ..... what a bunch of pussies.

This is more a consequence of the mainstream (and quite a few fundy) versions of christianity trying to repurpose their religion into one of peace, removing all the violent bits from public view. As a result it turns out a right land when people first glimpse the violence, like if you introduced a new character into My Little Pony and showed her graphically killing and devouring Apple Blossom.
You see, one thing is: I can live with doubt and uncertainty and not knowing.
I think it's much more interesting to live not knoing than to have answers which might be wrong.

Some people are triggered by tinny words like litter bin.

See, this bothers me. Millennials are being blamed for living in a world where they're spared many of the hardships that previous generations have experienced. To me, that's ridiculous. We've progressed, made living less hazardous and that's a good thing! The way millennials react to violence, bullying etc. are how we should all react to such things; it's previous generations who have the problems (including mine). You call them pussies but isn't it better that they don't experience oppression, violence, intolerance or exclusion? Of course they won't have robust coping mechanisms for such things but that's good! It's an indicator that society is becoming less oppressive, less violent, less intolerant, more inclusive. Do you want your children or grandchildren to have a tougher, more hazardous life? Because that's what you're advocating by making such statements.

Just watch Game of Thrones before attending the lecture. That should prepare them.

Ignorant and primitive Westeros isn't egalitarian enough. And as an ice zombie I'm extremely offended.
