Millennials Say Being Called 'Snowflakes' Causes 'Mental Health' Side Effects


When your argument against something ends up proving your opponent's point, it’s time to take a reflective look at yourself.

Insurance firm Aviva recently conducted a survey that shows that members of “Generation Snowflake” are offended — and possibly even mentally damaged — over being called “snowflakes.”

According to the Telegraph:

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.

Whatever happened to “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me?” Now, words are the most dangerous thing to radical liberals. (Especially considering you can now get away with actual murder in liberal cities. We’re looking at you San Francisco.)

Aviva medical expert, Dr. Doug Wright, sounds like one of the perpetrators that have brainwashed everyone into thinking that words are the AR-15s of the speaking population.

Here’s some of what Wright had to say regarding the study:

Any term used disparagingly to a segment of the population is inherently negative.
While young adults in particular appear to take offence to the ‘snowflake’ label, the majority of adults agree that the term is unfair and unhelpful, so it’s important that people consider how such labels are used, and the cumulative effect they could have on their recipients.

I’ve been called a “Nazi,” “white supremacist sympathizer,” “misogynist” and “racist” — among other more colorful things — and you don’t hear me crying about it. In fact, I usually laugh. You know why? Because I’m an adult who doesn’t let insults from complete strangers that don’t know me throw my life into a tizzy.

Toughen up, kiddies. Otherwise, it’s going to be a long, miserable life for you.
