Report: Calling snowflakes ‘snowflakes’ hurts their feelings

This report from Britain leaves me conflicted. I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

As reported by London’s Daily Mail;

Labelling millennials ‘snowflakes’ is damaging their mental health, research claims. 

The controversial term is now fashionable to use when describing young adults who are seen as taking offence easily and emotionally vulnerable.

Almost three quarters of 16-24 year olds surveyed believe the moniker is unfair and are adamant it could negatively affect their mental health.

The findings, made by insurance firm Aviva, were derived from a survey of 2,022 British participants between those ages.

A separate study also released by Aviva today suggests that 16-24 year olds are the worst-affected by mental health issues. 

Around three in five have experienced a mental health condition, compared to just under half of adults over the age of 24.

Some 46 per cent of young adults say they have suffered from anxiety in the past 12 months – significantly higher than the 35 per cent recorded by adults.

It comes after the Government’s behaviour tsar last February labelled students who demand to be protected from controversial views as snowflakes.

Tom Bennett said that the problem began at school when too many children were protected from the ‘harsher realities of the world’. 

And last month the Mail on Sunday uncovered that growing numbers of ‘snowflake’ students are appealing for special exemptions after missing essay deadlines.

Muslims angered at insinuation that Muslims are easily angered

The right-of-center think tank and conservative news portal The Brookings Institute and International Policy Council has published on Feb. 6, 2014 that during a meeting between German government officials and influential leaders of the nation’s rather large Muslim minority, the scheduled topic of gender equality quickly went off the rails when the followers of Mohammed took offense to the possibility that there just may a connection between Islam and forced marriages.

Wonder Woman knows...
Wonder Woman knows…

Oh, yes he di’id!

As just about the entire Western World already knows by now, Barack Obama’s public appearance at the tribute to South Africa’s Nelson Mandela included a well photographed selfie-session with Denmark’s leggy leader.

If facial expressions are any indication of what thoughts may be swirling in one’s mind, Mr. Obama’s happy-happy moments with Madame Prime Minister were much to the apparent chagrin of First Lady Michelle Obama, as reported by Fox News on Dec. 11, 2013.
