    There's the sense of entitlement since we don't let kid's experience failure nowadays. That includes things from not letting kids fail at school when their results are insufficient to handing out participation trophies. Some schools are even banning sporting activities to prevent anyone from feeling like a loser.

    We surrender to just about any complaint, rather that seeing if any of the responsibility falls on the complainant. For example, schools are removing a cross or picture of Jesus if one or two people complain, even if a hundred want it there. Someone needs to speak up and tell them to ignore it if they don't like it.

    You might say "the older generation always says the younger is worse." However, the upward trends for the numbers in divorce, kids born out of wedlock, government handouts, obesity, average age people live with parents until, etc. speak for themselves.

    What will it take to get society to acknowledge these mistakes and fix them? Feel free to add more.

    Getting fired over acting like an asshole to a bunch of kids is not a political issue, however Fox News would like to turn it into one because their viewers tune in everyday to find out what the next thing they need to be angry about is. Fox News is a business build on making issues for people to argue and get pissed off about.

    I know. It's such a farce. The same people who pontificate about "political correctness" and ideas like "words only have power if you give it to them" are the ones who freak out when Christianity is criticized, who argue fervently that the word "marriage" is untouchable and so on. This whole "political correctness" nonsense is nothing more than attempt to shout down dissent.

    Agreed. When I heard the story, the idea that this would be a political issue didn't even cross my mind. It's amazing what some people will do to encourage divisiveness where none had to exist.

    ZZZZZZZ. Yeah, we've only been conveying tone in our written communications since there were written communications. But I'm sure you can come up with a number of studies that show we can't. Hilarious.

    Oh for ****'s sake. What happens to you in life and your circumstances greatly influence "how you feel about and react to" events and circumstances. So yes, the things that happen to you in life and the circumstances you are dealt are just as if not more important than how one reacts to them.

    I am honestly so sick of this uneducated argument that comes almost exclusively from conservatives. It's as if you guys think people's choices come out of nowhere - completely untouched by their experiences and circumstances.

    Call them '****ing fairies' and '****ing faggots' and throw basketballs at them. Oh, and throw in a kick or two. That really teaches them to live within reality. I shouldn't be surprised by any of this. Bullies and thugs have their active defenders on this forum every time the subject comes up. Hell, we have one guy posting that integration was the beginning of our downfall as a nation and not one single conservative called him on it. Nothing surprises me.

    You have to remember that this is a poster who thinks all of our problems as a nation began when we decided to end racial segregation. Honest.

    True. I usually don't respond to him, but the idea he expressed in shared by so many conservatives that I felt it was appropriate.
