out of all the aspects of millennial-bashing, i think the one that most confuses me is the “millennials all got trophies as a kid, so now they’re all self-centered narcissists” theory

like— kids are pretty smart, y’all. they can see that every kid on the team gets a trophy and is told they did a good job; they can also see that not every kid on the team deserves a trophy, and not everyone did do a good job

the logical conclusion to draw from this is not “i’m great and i deserve praise”— it’s “no matter how mediocre i am, people will still praise me to make me feel better, so i can’t trust any compliments or accolades i receive”

this is not a recipe for overconfidence and narcissism. it is a recipe for constant self-guessing, low self-esteem, and a distrust of one’s own abilities and skills.

where did this whole “ugh millennials think their so-so work is super great” thing even come from it is a goddamn mystery

what fucking kills me is, yeah, maybe we got the trophies, but who gave them out

this is not a recipe for overconfidence and narcissism. it is a recipe for constant self-guessing, low self-esteem, and a distrust of one’s own abilities and skills.

Which is pretty much what mental health practitioners observe happening.

It’s also what I observed happening as a singing teacher: the older kids literally would not believe a positive word I said until I had proved I would tell them they screwed up/had done badly/etc. I did so in as useful a way as possible (“So this passage. We really need to work on this passage. A lot. This passage is not good yet.”), but with almost every adolescent I taught I had to prove I would give them straight-up criticism before they would parse my praise as anything other than meaningless “the grownups always do this” noise.

i think part of the reason why 80’s movies were so great was because they explore the idea of teenagers that have absolutely no where to go or no idea of what to do with their life- and that’s okay.

cis people aren’t allowed to edit my papers anymore

"WHAAATT? I HAVE TO EXPLAIN MY WORK??? IN MY OWN PAPER??? WHAT THE FUUUCK??"

It’s not my job to educate you, teacher. 

I’m betting one hundred bucks that this is a comment about a really badly written essay and not someone being actively transphobic.

well, you’re about to owe me one hundred bucks.
this is not the first time i mentioned privilege in the paper. or cisgender. this paper was written on my personal experiences with being trans, and the difficulties i’ve faced because of it, and the difficulties that cisgender people with otherwise comparable lives have not faced.
the terms privilege and cisgender had both been thoroughly elaborated on in this paper.
this paper was written for a women’s studies class, on gender analysis, in which both privilege and cisgender privilege in particular had been explained, elaborated upon, and discussed by the professor.
the comment was not by the professor, it was by a cis classmate during a peer review.
the words cisgender and privilege are both in scare quotes (in case you can’t google that or don’t know what it means or want to deny their existence, scare quotes is when you put a word or phrase in quotation marks to make it seem less real — the textual version of sarcastically making air quotes with your fingers)
another edit, by the same editor, involved asking me what my birth name was. i’m sure you don’t need to be told that that’s transphobic.
i spoke to the professor about this edit, and he agreed with me that the comment (and the way it was phrased) was out of line. in fact, he thought it was so out of line that he led a workshop for the class on how not to be disrespectful assholes to trans people (say, by asking for their birth name, or telling them they’re wrong or oversensitive about transphobia).
i got a 99% on the essay — WITHOUT changing anything the edit asked for.
the professor liked my essay so much that he asked to keep it as an EXAMPLE for future classes
bonus: if your reaction to seeing gross transphobic things is “well it’s probably the trans person’s fault”, then you’re gross and transphobic and i hope you don’t know any trans people IRL for their sake


3 lines of text with no there reference leaves a lot to the imagination. It very well could have been a badly written paper and we wouldn’t have known without an explanation. Still, the scare quotes were painfully obvious in trying to deny privilege in the first place. Interpersonal communication taught me that explaining something in an angry tone closes the reader’s/listener’s otherwise open mind. That’s not to say anger is unjustified, but that’s the plain and simple truth. One must keep that in mind when trying to enlighten someone. Now if the mind is closed to begin with, it matters not the tone. You’re gonna get nowhere with that poor unfortunate soul.

what are you trying to accomplish with this.

Nothing really, I just like to read my own thoughts. My mind goes on a tangent and I feel the need to type. I thought I had a point, in defending the opinion that it may have been a badly written essay since you can only read the last two sentences. Then in spiraled off into tone of voice because I was still processing a post I scrolled past that talked about “angry activism”. Usually I end up canceling my ramblings, but I still felt it important to share a piece of someone’s experience being non-CIA, I meant no offense.

Non-cis, stupid iPhone. You don’t know if he’s with the CIA or not.

ya look i get u meant no offense but if you look at the picture you can see the lines are the LAST few lines, therefore you can reasonably assume that they are the CONCLUDING lines of the essay n are concluding points that are fleshed out earlier in the essay. also the editor spelled a key word wrong despite it being used twice in just the text you can see so you can reasonably assume they didn’t read the essay too carefully. double also, even if the editor was right and the point hadn’t been explained enough, THE CONCLUSION IS NOT THE RIGHT PLACE TO PUT IT. do not introduce new ideas in a conclusion. oh, and triple also: there is literally an example RIGHT in the text you can see.and tone policing is fucking bullshit like damn straight I’m pissed about this, I made this post in March and I’ve had assholes coming at me for it every day or so since then, I’ve been called slurs, received death threats, told I’m wasting my education, and so on. I’ve been put on “tumblrinaction” where dozens of redditors bash my appearance and radical belief that trans people deserve rights. I deserve to be angry about every asshole commenting on this post like “maybe you didn’t give this poor innocent cis person a chance, stop jumping to Mean Trans Conclusions” and then backing it up with “but I’m not transphobic, I just care about the English language!!”
yeah fucking right. I’m so sick of all of you and all of this

The professor was clearly not trying to question your judgement. They weren’t questioning what you were saying, a key to good writing is to understand that your audience is stupid, you have to explain your ideas; use examples and make sure your audience is going to understand your point. You can’t just say “privilege” because privilege has so much context that is required. Are they privileged in the workplace? In society in general? etc. This isn’t about being cisgender or trans, it’s about your writing. 

lmfao cis harder why don’t ya. these clowns don’t even read the info i so kindly provided and they wanna come out here telling me i’m wrong when they don’t even have the basic facts. not even surprised tbh all cisfucks are trash

You’re completely undermining all of the work that generations of people have put into the equal rights movement with your outright bigotry.
