I Hate Millennials

Why I hate my own generation.

491

Every generation is remembered for something. Our grandparents were “the greatest generation” because they beat the Nazis and stormed the beaches at Normandy. Our parents are “the baby boomers” because they did a lot of banging. Now, we’re known as “millennials” because we were at least semi-conscious at the turn of the millennium. I hate the word “millennial.” The generation should instead be called “pussies.” I know there have been countless think pieces written on why millennials are lazy and entitled. But I’m going to take it a step further. They are absolutely f*cking worthless.

The first reason millennials are worthless is because they have zero personality and zero common sense. They think their sh*t doesn’t stink. They think they’re on the Mount Everest of moral high grounds. Have you ever tried having a real, fruitful conversation with one? It’s like they try to make a caricature of themselves. I’m currently in the process of finding an apartment with some friends and a few days ago I had a conversation with a girl who fit the millennial bill. I recounted to her the story of how, outside a loosie spot, a random woman offered to rent me a room in the projects for $200 a month. The girl asked me why I didn’t take it because $200 a month is an unbelievable price.

When I told her I didn’t particularly care to live in the projects, she smiled, took a puff of her cigarette and said with full seriousness and confidence, “Sounds like you don’t like people of color.” I thought it was some kind of sick joke, but nope, she was serious. She continued by saying, “Plus, don’t call it the projects, it’s a reaffirmation of your privilege. Low-income housing.”

At that point, all I could do is laugh. Clearly, for people like her (read: a lot of millennials) logic and reasoning go out the window as long as you can prove that you’re woke as hell. They want to prove to the world that they aren’t racist. They do that by coming up with ridiculous interpretations of right and wrong, racist and accepting. That chick called me racist because I didn’t want to live in one of the developments known for prostitution and the works. That’s insane. She so desperately wanted to be woke that she showed how utterly un-woke she was.

This idea of “woke” brings me to my next point: millennials think they’re unique and exhibit individuality when all they really do is reinforce the notion that they’re all clones with their thumbs up their asses. "Pulp Fiction" is one of my favorite movies ever. Mia Wallace is one of my favorite characters ever (I would kill a man to marry her). But it INFURIATES me seeing these foolish girls walking down the streets (which they gentrified) with the same Mia-esque haircut, holding the hand of a guy who looks like Andy Warhol with AIDS and a man-bun. They do it because they’re “artists” who are “woke” and they want a way to show it. But they’re defeating their own purpose. Everyone and their mother has those goddamn haircuts, those goddamn black shirts and those goddamn opinions that are nothing. Those opinions are studied and regurgitated without necessarily being understood which defeats the whole “individuality bubble” they’re living in.

But what infuriates me the most about millennials is that they don’t want to listen. They don’t want to shut up, even for a second. If they’re not telling you how woke they are, then clearly they must not be woke, right? Wrong. These buffoons have convinced themselves and others that “safe spaces” are necessary and vital. This shows how disillusioned they are about everything -- the only safe space is supposed to be your home. There are protests every day on countless college campuses calling for the end of many things: the end of grades below C-, no more conservative speakers on campus, and the end of midterms. How do you expect to learn if you aren't challenged? “It’s a trigger,” they say, but so is life. Colleges (clearly) can by manipulated into giving them “safe spaces” that will prevent them from the awful, horrendous triggers they might face. But the real world doesn’t have that. In the real world, it's put up or shut up. It worries me that most millennials can do neither.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
