Man, as a New Yorker, I find those "microaggressions" disturbing. Yeah, fuck me for taking an interest into your culture. How racist of me for trying to appreciate something new and exciting! Fuck cultural Marxism. The ultimate degenerates are those who are so milquetoast they scoff at those who live their lives with an ounce of passion. Fuck these white people who want to eliminate my Halal carts and Chinatowns.
I think that a decent number of 1995 and later babies are fucked in the head. They've spent their entire lives being raised in a degenerate culture without standards, while simultaneously being overprotected from imaginary threats and attending schools that transformed into bureaucracies. I remember us Millennials being chastised for not growing up fast enough as teenagers, but we genuinely wanted to. We were never able to due to financial issues. We didn't have any means of independence because affordable car ownership was a dream of the 90's. This entire itch to catch up with our older peers has been with us for over a decade...and I swear it's not present in most of these kids at all.
That's the worst thing about being a Millennial. The itch. The itch you can never scratch. You grow up and the goalposts keep getting pushed further and further...it's awful. You witness teenagers in the 90's being free...and then you can't afford to in the 2000's. As people are hitting their stride in the 2000's, you dream, aspire to things, and plan out your adult life...only to have the fucking bottom fall out in 2008, ONE YEAR after I graduated, and now I'm FUCKED AGAIN. You keep trying to gain footing but there's always an invisible force causing you to slip, and it makes your body weak like a nightmare where you're about to be murdered and can't fight back. At this point you've realized no one will help us...we can only help ourselves but we don't have the resources.
And yet I swear to God so many of these kids feel NONE OF THAT. Their lack of cynicism is most fucking disturbing thing on the planet to me. So many of these college age manchildren have had their ass wiped for them since time immortal. Meanwhile I'm about to be 27 and I'm going to snap. They will do whatever it takes to avoid the realization that the world is colder and more unforgiving than ever - the very realization that forces you into adulthood, kicking and screaming...
As a Millennial myself, I can relate to this. The feeling of having the goalposts moved constantly, where you're trying to make 10 leaps forward, only to be another 20 behind. You want to succeed, be independent, and live a decent life, but like the proverbial carrot on a stick, you can never get closer to it despite how much you chase it.
2008 was a shitty year for me as well, it was when I was starting to find employment, only to have the entire economy take a nosedive and all available jobs disappear. I've only managed to land a 6-month contract job since then, and because of it's limited time, I was out of a job and out of funds yet again after that. I've been trying to pay a $680 rent, and a $120 internet bill on a $790-per-month income. Sleep, wake up, eat, worry about bills, bathroom, sleep, repeat is the daily life cycle it seems like. Monotonous and maddening.
Been going to college, I want to socialize, or perhaps find a lover... but the social environment is getting extremely toxic, to the point where it doesn't seem viable anymore. Everybody is too damn touchy and afraid to talk, let alone show compassion. Try to be nice? They look at you like some alien. Open a door for someone? You've committed a Micro-aggression. Try to be honest but respectful? Offended/Triggered anyway. Humor? Nobody laughs. Try to be there for someone who's hurt? They'll either lie or hide their feelings, then use their feelings as an excuse to abuse you later.
Sexually repressed, and want to feel loved, wanted, and desired by someone who isn't a total degenerate in today's society? Good luck. Apparently, as a male, your emotions mean nothing, and your sexuality, regardless if you're straight, bi, or gay, is an affront to humanity that must be hidden and silenced. At least, that's what a lot of people will try to make you believe. Either way, expect to feel soul-crushing loneliness, because you'll never be allowed to talk about what it is you're truly feeling.
What bothers me so much about that last bit, is that... there's tons of dumb-asses rambling about how they're bringing about the 2nd sexual revolution, while all they're doing is reversing all the good that came of the first revolution. It's getting to the point where there's more sexually repressed and mentally fucked-up people than there ever was before, as the topic of sexuality and sexual desire has become more socially inaccessible than ever if you're not part of some niche or specific social circle.
