Posted on 12/07/2017 3:57:59 AM PST by Sir Napsalot
A new survey reveals that young people believe being called a snowflake could be damaging to their mental health.
A new survey by insurance firm Aviva found that 72 percent of 16 to 24-year-olds believe the term snowflake is unfairly applied to millennials. 74 percent of respondents took it a step farther, arguing that they believe the use of the label could have a negative effect on young peoples mental health.
The study was born out of interest in the term snowflake generation which was originally used to describe young people who thought they were unique or special. .........
Dr. Doug Wright argues that because young people are more likely to experience mental health issues than older generations, they are especially susceptible to damage as a result of usage of the snowflake label. ...... he said. Any term used disparagingly to a segment of the population is inherently negative.

How do pervious generations of younguns ever survive to adulthood?
To which the old coach in me replies, “Suck it up, buttercups”.
Bunch of faggots.
Snowflakes are pretty much confirming the stereotype with this, aren’t they?
Old people just snicker at their irony deficiency.
Geez! Well stop reading about the plight of the Native Americans in the 5th century and go out and chop some wood! That may help!
Playgrounds used to teach kids that if you poke someone, you might get punched back in the nose.

What a way to stat the day.
my heart is still pounding...
Proving their name, “Snowflakes”, put a little heat on them, and they MELT.
If they inherit the world, we’ll devolve back to the stone age.
It doesn't get any better than this!
Accurate diagnosing and labeling is not permitted because it might hurt someone's feelings. These 'majority of adults' are probably the same ones telling the young that they are extra special fragile snowflakes in the first place.
This perpetuates the situation, not helping, the young people in snowflake generation.
Pot meet kettle.
Stop calling people racists, haters, fascists, and every other nasty term you sling at everyone every time you throw a tantrum.
The bigger problems for these younger generations are not rooted in the names they may or may not be called. Their problems include a huge and rising national debt they will inherit. Rapid demographic shifts without assimilation. Feckless and corrupt politicians who send the young into battle, then squander what they gave their lives or their limbs for. Massive government corruption. These are just for starters.
>>> looks like broken ankle and shoulder and wrist injury.
hell be ok.
Thank goodness. Hope the young girl learn something from this.
