    This also from a kid who knows players on a college hockey team coached by one of the best. Reality is this guy's actions have nothing to do with my generation. It has to do with this coach doing a ****ty job coaching a team and was fired for it.

    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.
    Once again you seem to have become pitifully hysterical. Reaction to events and circumstances is not a Conservative or Liberal concept, it's a psychological concept that has been propounded over and over again in academic settings.

    You've got enough problems without this, you poor devil.

    Well, this is the first time I've seen someone do something as stupid as link political correctness to divorce, bastard children, welfare states, and of all things, fatness.

    Other than extoll on some imaginary hardiness or strength of spirit you think past generations had, what is the point of this thread?

    Are you going to back your opinion up, or simply troll?

    Who's trolling? I think it's you, since you opened a thread so devoid of intellectual content.

    For god sakes, you used the word Wussification! That's not even a real word!

    I'll take that as you not having a good explaination behind the increases in numbers. In denial about the irresponsibility of kids these days?

    If you would have read the article, you'd realze that I didn't come up with that word.
