College enlists Care Bears to comfort stressed-out students

care bears for college

Good grief. Any wonder why millennials don’t want to be called snowflakes?

From Campus Reform: A dorm display at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst is using Care Bears to help students who feel “grumpy or stressed.”

“Feeling grumpy or stressed? Let the Care Bears help!” the display states above a large, hand-drawn rainbow adorned with bit of advice for students.

“It’s important to take care of ourselves! Self-care is an active choice and you should treat it as such,” one section proclaims, while other suggest that students “surround yourselves with supportive people” and “reminders of what you love.”

The display also suggests goofing around with friends, making time for fun, eating healthy, and getting enough sleep.

According to Bradley Polumbo, a sophomore at UMass-Amherst, the display was posted in Birch Hall, the dorm for students in the Honors College.

“Frankly, I just think it’s ridiculous,” Polumbo told Campus Reform. “The people that live in this dorm are either 20 or 21 years old. We could be overseas fighting in wars right now, or working full time with kids at home to feed.”

“But the school thinks we need Care Bears to remind us that we’re supposed to eat healthy and sleep at night?” Polumbo said, questioning the display. “If you don’t know that by age 20 you have bigger problems, and probably shouldn’t be pursuing a degree until you get those sorted out.”

The Residence Director for Birch Hall did not respond in time for publication of this article.

  1. Are they in kindergarten? And yet Generation Snowflake resent us calling them snowflakes. America’s enemies — ISIS, North Korea, et al. — must be laughing their ass off.

  2. This is Pink Care Bear here reminding you to make time for healthy, interactive social activities, like joining Antifa, Black Lives Matter and Pussy Hat protests. And remember, it’s good for your mental health to punch a fake Nazi in the face to relieve stress just prior to important exams.

    This has been another helpful reminder from your good pal, Pink Care Bear!

  4. It absolutely amazes me how far this coddling of the snowflakes is going. Even my ten year old laughed when he heard this story on fox and friends.

    1 Corinthians 13:11
    11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I set aside childish ways.

    I do think it’s good to remember that childish things are made for children, and that, however pleasantly lurid the promise of a return to the clarity of childhood may be, an infatuation with the childish reveals only that one has failed to grow past it.

    Just proves that the snowflake generation are still children who have not and may never fully mature into adulthood.

    • It seems progressives want to keep everyone– all of society– childlike and dependent for “social justice”…

  5. Wallmart is having a sale on no brand name pampers, wipes and BARF TOWELS. Hope these retards get their act together, get a real job and leave home, glad I don’t have a parasite at home or I’d kick his ass to,the curb.

  7. Oh how very adult of them. And they want us to take them seriously, really?
    I think the young man, Polumbo. Understands the situation.
    I find them laughable.

    • Glenn47 . . . I agree with you whole heartedly, Bradley Poumbo sounds like he has already matured into adulthood. The cites the fact that persons his age can be called to fight in America’s wars, and some other folks his age have taken on the role of parenthood and raising children. I see no reason why people who are old enough to be in college cannot be forced into acting like they are adults.

      Why would the sane people of this nation want individuals who are this retarded in their development to have the right to vote? This is such an alarming trend on our universities. I wonder if down the road, what with social media, these childlike antics might not catch up with the “children” who enacted them . . . and prospective employers can delve into the real life of those who are applying for employment.

      True, it is extremely laughable, however, these are the folks who will be starting families in the not too distance future . . . what in the world do they know about life, if they are still sucking their thumbs, and being enchanted with Care Bears?

  8. “This world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing.”
    –Winston Churchill 1920.

    We’re two years away from 100 years since that quote, wow! (Quote seen in new @HenryMakow article dated today re “arrested development.”)

    <br />Any college age student who needs a "Care Bear" is not ready for college & needs to go back home to Mommie & Daddy until maybe they reach 30 & decide they are finally ready to move out of Mommie's basement.
    
    LOL @ Judge Judy above who has the right attitude.  🙂
    
    

    Regular Libtards vs. Commie-Lefty Libtards:

    Another interesting & somewhat related read was also via a Makow tweet re two Lib professors from a Washington State lib arts college who were forced out when the COMMIE-leftists came in & took over via new Admin who immediately began “data (psych) profiling” the faculty, instituted new rules, new “SJW activism” & “in your face equality,” etc. It went from being a proggie college to an “antifa training center”:

    12/12/17: “Bonfire of the academies: Two professors on how leftist intolerance IS killing higher education” by (the former professors) Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein:
    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/bonfire-of-the-academies-two-professors-on-how-leftist-intolerance-is-killing-higher-education/article/2642973

    The headline says “IS” as in present tense. It should read, “HAS BEEN FOR DECADES.” My question to the two professors is how did they never notice before that their “normal regular lefty” thinking was like a bonfire waiting for a can of gasoline to explode it sky high?

    Re: the students, they may have remained “regular lefties” had not the new Admin come in & brainwashed them to become vicious-snowflakes instead of just snowflakes. The school already had tons of “equality” programs/assistance, but the new Admin promoted it to a violent degree. And the campus police WAS told to “STAND DOWN,” they wrote. What a mess!

  9. I think,a LONG time ago,the Leftists of ALL varieties forgot what EQUALITY meant;somehow they shifted the word EQUALITY over to mean “Leftist Superiority”. They’re VERY good at “reinterpreting” words (e.g. The US Constitution/Bill of Rights) to mean whatever supports THEIR agenda. I’d LOVE to see that behavior change,but you can’t make a Duck Moo like a Cow.

    • truck . . . I certainly agree with the fact that the “Leftist Superiority” deliberately indulged in “reinterpreting words” which back up THEIR beliefs and ultimate agenda! Thank you for hitting on that extremely important fact. Just look at the word “gay” which, when I was young meant to be: happy, lighthearted, very cheerful, etc. . . . . now it has been railroaded, and is a code word for homosexual. What is wrong with using the word “homosexual” when you mean homosexual, rather than dropping a fly in the ointment by substituting the word “gay.” I agree with you when you write: “I’d LOVE to see that behavior change, but you can’t make a Duck Moo like a Cow.” That is a very appropriate saying for this situation and yes, I do agree we probably will not see a reversal of this behavior in our lifetime.
