Children of mankind, sons and daughters of Homo Sapiens Sapiens, the offspring we call the Snowflake generation, hearken unto the words written before you for they are a promulgation for your own good. Your eyes are open and yet you are blind, your ears hear and yet you are deaf, your tongue speaks and yet you say nothing. The world created from the fantasies of your mind blind you to the realities before you, the monsters you imagine prevent you from seeing the lion stalking you in the long grass. Read, be educated, clear your mind from wilful ignorance.
I will explain each point. Hearken! (For clarity the word "you" is directed towards snowflakes).
Myth 1: The world owes you something.
Reality: You were born a blood and amniotic fluid covered mewling mess. For the first few years of your life you were as defenceless as any creature on this planet could possibly be. You mother or other guardian watched over you to make sure you survived to an age where you could do things for yourself which as a Snowflake takes a long time.
If you were born in the West you likely had more luxuries than most people in history have ever had. You will have had more access to food, health care, education and literature than anyone in previous generations of mankind. Living in the opulence like you do , you may feel that the universe and mankind in general owe you respect and should indulge your every thought. The world does in fact not care about the many non-issues that you find so hard to deal with, issues such the café no longer having a supply of your favourite low fat soy extract pumpkin spice Frappe or that someone said something you disagree with on SNS.
Your life is actually beyond comfortable, you are not oppressed (you actually do not fathom the meaning of oppression as your concept of the idea is completely theoretical). You are not owed anything, on the contrary you owe the world for the upkeep of your existence. You have the right to do good for others, make an effort to improve yourself and work hard to succeed.
Myth 2: Follow your heart and love yourself.
Reality: "Follow your heart" is what people say when they can't think of any intelligent advice. Following your heart is like following a broken GPS. Most people don't even know what they actually want, they think that they do but their actions shows that the opposite is true.
The world is full of people who love themselves, we certainly don't need any more. Narcissistic people have hearts filled with inordinate pride and self esteem to a level that is not only damaging to others but to themselves. Their hearts are so full with love for the "god of self" that they are unable to actually do good for others. Their perception of righteous behaviour is actually self serving and egotistical.
It is better for you to love others and in return receive love from others than to love yourself. Loving others, doing good to others..... this is what truly improves quality of life. Half of the problems we have in society come as a result of people following their heart and loving themselves.
Myth 3: The right not to be offended.
Reality: There is no such thing. People are offended by different things and hence it is impossible to know what one finds offensive and another does not. Even when individuals make ad hominem attacks, it is up to the individual to take offence. Of course, there are individuals who make deplorable even vile comments that should not be made, however, thick skinned individuals do not give such people the satisfaction of seeing that they have offended.
You do not have control over the actions of others, you hardly have control over yourself. It is therefore not you place to demand the use of certain words or titles and then be offended if people refuse to comply to such futile demands.
Myth 4: Using people's preferred pronouns keeps them safe.
Reality: By the same logic every time some says that fairies aren't real, somewhere in the world a fairy drops dead. The pronoun issue is both idiotic and dangerous but not for the reasons that Social Justice Warriors claim.
It is idiotic, nay, devoid of logic to claim that pronouns show respect for an individual when in the English language (I say English because apparently facts need to be blatantly spelled out) they have never served such a function. The use of "they/them" for an individual when that individual is know to the speaker is simply incorrect. Linguistics is a science and it does not care about you ideologies or desire for mental power over others.
The compelled speech hidden behind this pronoun issue is far dangerous and encroaches far more on the freedoms of mankind than not using some fictitious language form. It impels people to use a form of pseudo-language that may not only violate their freedom but also conscience by becoming party to that which is not, a pseudoscientific non-linguistic lie. It is designed to erode the most basic of freedoms for the benefit of a minority apartheid that labels the heterosexual as an oddity which needs to conform.
If one is born a man, one is a man. If one is born a woman, one is a woman. Sex and gender are the same. That is a biological axiom that no amount of mental gymnastics can overcome.
No one should be pressured to used this faux totalitarian language.
Myth 5: Everyone who disagrees with you is a NAZI.
Reality: People have differences of opinions. Some of the things you may find to be acceptable are viewed as abhorrent by others. Right or wrong, their opinions may be different to yours. If they are a neo-NAZI then well...in that case they happen to be a NAZI who disagrees with you.
The National Socialist Workers Party was a regime led by a pathetic, deranged and violent monster which along with his party butchered anyone who dared to exist or get in their way. They were among the most deplorable and debased murders to pollute this planet by their mere presence. Calling everyone you disagree with only serves to desensitise society to the monstrosity that is Nazism.
Calling ever individual that does not agree with you a NAZI when having an argument or debate only serves to undermine your own argument. Personally, I find calling a Jew a NAZI to be especially bad form, along with comparing ones own struggles to that of a Jew in NAZI Germany.
Myth 6: Men And Women are the same.
Reality: If you think that men and women are the same, I strongly encourage you to pick up a physiology text book (assuming you can read, sorry I like giving people the benefit of the doubt).
Men and women both have several biological advantages and disadvantages over each other. This is such a ridiculous notion that even a half lobotomised chimpanzee would be able to understand that humans are a sexually dimorphic species. If you still don't understand pick up the physiology textbook (warning science doesn't particularly care about your feelings).
Myth 7: Everyone should be feminist.
Reality: I already answered this in the article "Feminism: 10 Myths and Realities. Short answer... No, no they shouldn't and if they were smart they wouldn't.
Myth 8: My body, my choice.
Reality: Yes, you have a choice..... You could choose not to copulate and therefore not get pregnant. You could choose to use contraception and not get pregnant. You should not have the choice to take no responsibility for your life like a immature child and then expect to be given the "right" to murder an unborn human being. It is perplexing to see mothers baying for the blood of their unborn children, all to ready to sacrifice them on the altar of licentiousness and the fathers of such children all to ready to oblige such merciless insanity.
Far from being a liberation, abortion condemns women to be seen as objects by certain men devoid of morals, it is physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually damaging to the woman who does it. The results on the mental and physical health of women who have abortions is scientifically documented and yet willingly overlooked because it does not conform to the pro-abortion ideology.
The ability to legally get an abortion also encourages female infanticide. It is estimated that in China and India approximately 70 million female foetuses have been executed for the "crime" of being female. Do not hypocritically claim to support women's rights while condoning or encouraging this genocide against women.
I have nothing positive to say about this murder of foetuses, because I have nothing positive to say about murder.
Myth 9: We are not violent so we don't want to use violence but we will if we have to.
Reality: If you consider using violence as a way to communicate your displeasure then you are violent. A sheep is a sheep and a wolf is a wolf. I've never seen a sheep maul a wolf to death. Saying that one is not violent but willing to use violence is bereft of reason.
Bringing weapons to a "peaceful protest" would mean that you are as violent and totalitarian as whatever has evoked your ire.
Disagreeing with someone is not violent, words are not violent, violence is violent. A simple concept which most learn at a young age.
Myth 10: University safe spaces make students safer.
Reality: Using this same logic one can convincingly argue that children should never be taught to swim because they could drown while learning to swim. (While ignoring the fact that learning to swim is far more likely to save their life).
Universities are centres of higher education. They are not kindergartens that need to coddle the minds of overly sensitive snowflakes which feel oppresses or triggered if so much as the wind changes.
Safe spaces are designed to provide a protective bubble from reality, something completely at polar opposites to real academia. It prevents students from building a backbone, from expanding their mind, from learning to deal with people they may not like, from being a grown adult.
If one is incapable of receiving criticism, listening to opinions contrary to your own or discussing issues that are actually issues, then one should go to the university administration and withdraw from university stating that one "lacks the mental and intellectual dexterity" needed to study with mature people.
Snowflakes, please do the entire planet a favour and stop being oversized infants, just grow up.
