Is it any wonder the younger generation are getting thought of as soft when you see articles such as the one below, some people can't see something for what it is, a simple joke.  Do these people do it just to see their name in the media, see something they don't like and take offence. Years ago something like this would be just laughed off but not now it's straight to social media and get it all over the Internet. They want a world where everything is politically correct.

It's just a sad reflection on society that ome people find offence where none exists. They prey on anyone who doesn't believe in political correctness . They are pathetic.

How bizarre - perhaps you could try explain what this is supposed to mean?

Perhaps you could explain why you think the views of someone who only has CSE's are worthless.

I don't. You're reading too much into my comment. One of the wisest people I know is my schizophrenic nephew with no qualifications.

I think you'll find that even having a PHD doesn't preclude a person from acting like an idiot & making stupid statements.

So, just checking, are we still moaning loudly about someone we think complained too much...?

...

Yes, yes we are. And we're definitely not the snowflakes.  Oh no.

Funny reference on 'Have I Got News For You' last night about a new character for Mr Men / Little Miss franchise. 

 

Little Miss Killjoy.
