Hello, Harry Potter. My name is Tom Riddle. How did you come by my blog?
Solène, 16, French, Gryffindor and INFP. Bisexual cis girl.
Doctor Who and Harry Potter, lots of David Tennant (in a borderline obsessive way), Billie Piper (and a whole lot of other life ruiners), LGBT+ rights, intersectional feminism, Orphan Black, Torchwood, Broadchurch, Secret Diary of a call girl, Doctor/Rose, James/Lily, Ginny/Harry, tons of fangirling, lots of rambling. Run, you fools.
Definitely NOT a Moffat-friendly blog.

Why yes, you are correct im-the-asshole-that. I really really hate boomers constantly shitting on my generation.

At my job, I once had to take a training course called “Dealing with Difficult People.” And during that course, for no apparent reason, the instructor started off on a rant about millenials which quickly devolved into the entire room of boomers bitching about my generation. At one point, one lady called us “animals.”

When I raised my hand to point out that this was disrespectful, I was told “it’s okay, you’re not like them.” At which point I snapped and asked HOW. My experiences are their experiences. You know what we saw when we grew up? We saw a housing market collapse. We saw the beginning of a war on terror so vaguely defined as to have no visible end. We saw an entire generation stick their fingers in their ears and shout “GLOBAL WARMING ISN’T REAL AND IF IT IS IT’S A PROBLEM FOR THE NEXT GENERATION.”

We’ve been told that “you better go to college if you want a good job” only to graduate to find that there are no jobs available because the work force ISN’T RETIRING. We’ve seen the cost of higher education increase OVER 1,000% in the last four decades. A college credit that cost an day’s minimum wage in the 70’s costs us 60 days of work. Those of us who graduate with student loans are told that if we couldn’t afford it we shouldn’t have gone. Those who don’t go are told that we can’t expect a job without a college degree.

We’ve grown up in a world where the acceptance rate at Harvard is higher than the acceptance rate at a new Walmart. We’ve been told that you were grateful for you job flipping burgers, but you were paid the equivalent of $14-$15 an hour to do so. We’ve had employers cut our work week to 39 hours to get out of paying for our healthcare.

I’ve worked in fast food and you want to know a secret? I have never had a problem with teenagers. If they get rowdy or messy they mean no harm. In fact, most of them will stop if you tell them. All they want is a fucking milkshake and a corner to themselves The customers that cause the most problems? They’re middle aged. I had a customer berate me, cuss at me, and call me stupid and ask if I failed math when I told him he hadn’t given me enough money to pay his check. When he finally accepted he was in the wrong, he told me I shouldn’t have made such a big deal out of it because it was “bad customer service” even though any shortage comes out of my paycheck. That sense of entitlement is something I rarely see in millenials.

We’re told in legitimate publications, in TIME MAGAZINE, just how little you think of our generation, how little you RESPECT us and yet you ask for our unquestioning devotion. Well guess what, IT DOESN’T WORK LIKE THAT. You’ve ruined our economy, our housing market, our job market, our environment, and our climate. You continually mock us, demonize us, and leave us to clean up your messes.

RESPECT IS EARNED, and you have done nothing to earn it. And it’s ironic that I have to have this discussion here because at this moment you are the difficult people I am having to deal with.

I was then told I was overly confrontational and would apparently benefit from being sweeter when being called an animal (I may have continued loudly talking over the “instructor” when she tried to cut me off). But the other sole millenial and I shared a loving glance across the room and absolutely lambasted this instructor in the evals and she’s never been invited back to teach that course, so it’s all okay.

I have never, ever understood why there is this fad of boomers shitting on millenials.

(Gen X just sits here in the middle looking confused and worried, I guess.)

The boomers shit on us millenials because we are blaming them for the shit they fucked up instead of just accepting it.

And you have every right to feel this way.

Signed,

born in 1954, whatever that makes me.  Someone who’s been on the outside for generations

offensive4you :"Here's a question you'll either ignore, edit, or mock because it'll blow your underdeveloped brain. You're a feminist, disgustingly, yet have you ever protested anything that feminism actually stands for? For example, women aren't forced into the SSA, women have all female colleges, women get scholarships just for being female, women are more likely to be chosen for jobs. You do realized that the definition for feminism is "the advocation of women rights to be equal to those of men"? Doubt it."

It’s so adorable how hard you guys try to blow my mind.

There has been much discussion over the last few decades of including women in the draft, and now that women are no longer excluded from ground combat roles (which was the primary justification for their exclusion from the draft), you may get your wish. In 1980, the year the draft was reactivated, the National Organization for Women (NOW) announced opposition to the draft, but states that if there is a draft, NOW supports the inclusion of women on the same basis as men.” Not only that, President Carter himself "recommended that Congress amend the Act to permit the registration and conscription of women as well as men," but it was Congress that “declined to amend the Act to permit the registration of women.” Congress in 1980, by the way, was all of 3.6% female, so you have your fellow men to thank for your complaint. Oh, and an organization specifically for women in the military also supports inclusion of women in Selective Service. (Personally, I think the whole thing should be abolished for everyone, but I know you’re not really interested in my thoughts.)

Are you seriously complaining about all-female colleges when the reason they exist is that women weren’t allowed to go to college in the first fucking place? Education for women in the 1800s was minimal during that period. Schooling was for the male gender, and if a woman wanted to go to school, she was looked down upon.”  Oh, and there are about 48 active colleges in the US that admit only women, which is about 1% of all colleges. The historical exclusion of women from higher education, as well as the current gender imbalance in the STEM fields, are a couple of reasons why women-only scholarships exist; often, scholarships for women have a specific goal in mind, whether it is to get women into leadership positions, doctoral programs, or currently male-dominated industries or companies.” Also, there are scholarships just for men. And, you are flat-out wrong in your assertion that women are more likely to be hired. I mean, like, very wrong.

What were you saying?

And boom goes the dynamite.

And actually I’m completely right that women are more likely to get hired. An example of this: Apple, the company, recently released its diversity report. A diversity report shows how ethnically and genderly diverse a company is, why, I don’t know seems pointless to hire people basses on anything other than skill. Anyway, females make up 20% of apples tech employees, yet females only acquire an average of 12% of tech scholarships, and they don’t score near the top generally. So yea, you’re wrong. Like bad, bad wrong.

This such a sad attempt that I was tempted to leave it alone out of pity, but I want you to take note that you’re trying to prove me wrong about the “sexist” treatment of men by:

  1. providing an example of one, individual company’s hiring stats, which show that the company employs 80% men, in order to somehow demonstrate that women are universally more likely to be hired (because math means whatever you want it to mean?), and
  2. providing the statistic that men receive 88% of tech scholarships, which, though completely unsourced and therefore assumed spurious, does absolutely nothing to help your argument, if you can call it that.

This is getting really embarrassing for you, dude. You should probably lie down.

Okay. Also.
Tech scholarships.
That is so… completely irrelevant to your other thing. Why even mention them together? Why imply there’s some sort of connection to them by saying “yet”?

I could *sorta* get it if you were saying “They have 12% of the degrees, but 20% of the jobs” - except once again, this is only one company, and honestly those numbers are pretty close. That’s 8 people more out of 100; 80 out of 1 thousand. Not an impressive difference tbh. Especially when considering that it is, in fact, possible to hire people that did not get their degrees in the U.S. even though they live there now. So the amount of degrees obtained in a single country is not quite as important as you seem to think it is.

But yeah, way to see that glaring imbalance and twist it to show, not the fishiness of only 12% of scholarships going to women, but that somehow men are shortchanged in this.

Plz be better at this if you’re going to be that condescending.

Female privilege is getting to claim a headache to avoid sex.

Female oppression is having to claim physical illness to avoid sex because men won’t take a simple fucking “no” for an answer.

Female oppression is men being so entitled that they think being denied sex is oppressive.
