More deep thoughts from the iY Generation…

Last month I did a post on the iY Generation (#me!), highlighting the deep thoughts they post on Tumblr. Today, I give you these brilliant reflections…
einstein
 “I hate it when people say that ‘abortion is a woman’s issue’ it’s a uterus bearer’s issue. Everything isn’t always about you, cisgender women.”
unborn baby
“Reasons abortion should be fully covered on all insurance plans: If you can’t afford an abortion, you definitely can’t afford a pregnancy. If you can’t afford an abortion, and are forced to carry a pregnancy to term anyway, you sure as hell can’t afford a child. Who the fuck do you think you’re really protecting here?” (Apparently this person is not aware adoption.)
“The reason women are turning you down for casual sex seems to be that, for one thing, a lot of you are calling them sluts afterward. Also, a lot of you aren’t bothering to try to be good in bed.”
 “skelogender definition: a gender that’s a big part of you and come from deep inside but is obscure and unknowable. A gender that’s unique to you – it’s you and while it’s probably not clear to others it keeps you together.”
say what
“Do you think it matters how many people someone has slept with?” No, and it particularly bothers me that women are held to a different standard on this front than men. Also, it’s such a weird thing to care about. Like, imagine if I tried eating Cheerios for breakfast. Would Cheerios be like ‘I’m the 48th cereal you’ve tried eating!? I don’t feel special.’ Well then screw you Cheerios, I can’t go into the past and uneat all those cereals, but that doesn’t mean I don’t genuinly enjoy your wholegrain crunch…”
“We will ask nothing. We will demand nothing. We will take, occupy.”

One of OWS's finest...

“Gender and sex are the same thing. Gender is merely sex that has hit the social sphere. The idea that sex is an actual real thing that bodies have is just another excuse that people use to misgender trans people. My body is female because as a female person, me, possess this body. Sex is an oppressive and inaccurate social construction that allows cis and/or dyadic people to hide behind a facet of science they don’t even understand.”
“the fact that pretty teeth are only known as ‘white’ and ‘straight’ is a manifestation of our hatred for minorities.”
“BDSM (bondage, dominance, sadism, and masochism) is weird but arent we all the subs to capitalisms dominance”
“I feel like the ‘radical’ part of (t)werf should just be cut out bc I really don’t care what you want to call your feminism, but denying women safe places due to their genitalia isn’t radical at all, it’s literally parroting patriarchal ideology”
so what is it that constitutes a “real” pronoun? is language, and our conceptualization of it’s role in identity politics inherently flawed? are our ideas about what constitutes “real pronouns”, “real English” and “real grammar” not inherently gatekept on the basis of race, class, gender and socioeconomic status, ans skewed through a colonialist lens? what you’re doing, is taking the argument into reductio ad absurdum territory and invalidating the idea that we are allowed to choose or prounouns, fuck up language, create spaces, self define and change the way we interact with gendered language.”
english is hard work
“if u can’t construct a coherent or comfortable non-dude gender identity for yrself, you gotta work to tear down misogyny in yrself and yr male peers.”
As a fat person, I’m not allowed to fail academically or at my career. If I lose my job or don’t get into college, I’m not eligible to join the army. I don’t fit into into the uniforms at Hooters. I would never get a job as a stripper. I’m not allowed to use my body when my mind isn’t enough to keep me employed.(Feminists revolt!)

Dear DCG, can I share some of my thoughts as a fellow member of the Ygeneration??? So you need free abortion because you can’t afford paying for your own abortion nor can’t afford a pregnancy or the resulted child? Well, perhaps you should not be having sex… save it to when you can actually deal with the consequences of your acts! Yes, looking for your soul mate and your favorite cereal is the very same thing. Stop shaming the cereal-sluts out there!!! (Should I mention that I’m being sarcastic, or is it obvious?) I don’t know any cis or dyadic… Read more »

Yikes! And many of them cannot take constructive criticism/feedback on the job. As a supervisor, you are “discriminating” and “disrespecting” if you see areas for improvement–because they are “so much more intelligent and evolved” than my generation. That was a rant–sorry!

Northerngirl . . . I so agree with you! My brain could not wrap itself around some of the “concepts” that were written. I felt like I was lost in a deep fog.

Let me guess, you all are old. Sorry had to say it. Now have some acceptance of your sagging bodies, failing memories and faltering good looks. Seems to me you all spend too much time on the interweb too. If you have time for this lame site, how much time do you really spend online? Loolllzz

@Shambo:
To paraphrase Winston Churchill: “We may be old(er), but tomorrow you will still be a soul-ugly useful idiot.”

If I were you, I wouldn’t be so sure and smug about your body and your looks. I’d bet you $100 that our DCG is fitter than you.

Shambo, if the site is so lame, how come I keep seeing your name popping up in thread after thread. What’s up? No date tonight? Wanna hang with the old folks? Hey be careful. You might even learn something.
Junior, most of the people here have led 3 lives already. Not just chronological. You know bubkus.

Gee, I wonder how many homeschoolers are represented in those pithy comments…. heh-heh-heh…. 😀
This is what comes of teaching self esteem without accomplishment, from teaching that facts, logic, and reality are all unimportant, so long as you feel good about yourself. I guarantee that all of these mental midgets think that they are profound thinkers, when in reality they are about as deep as a splash of water on a sidewalk…. and nearly as interesting.

Home schooling is mostly for Christian fanatics and white supremacists, so I agree with you j.case. People who don’t want their point of view challenged usually isolate and insulate themselves, like in a site like this. Oh snap!

“People who don’t want their point of view challenged….” This is nothing more than the usual canard from the left, and yet you will find that nearly all of us know boths sides of the issues discussed here, while you could not accurately articulate even one genuinely conservative viewpoint. Our viewpoints are challenged daily, and subject to self examination and evaluation, while you answer any challenge to your point of view with kneejerk liberal talking points. “….usually isolate and insulate themselves, like in a site like this.” And yet the doors to this site are thrown open wide to permit… Read more »

Shambo, thank you for serving as a perfect example of a low-information thinker, we really appreciate it, although you seem like a very smart person, I did not read the word “whippersnappers” anywhere. We welcome you with open hearts and open minds, but I promise, once you start looking equally as hard as what the left says and what the right says, your own thinking will be challenged. And by the way, I am young, I am a card carrying democrat who chose to look very carefully at what both sides say things were just not making sense to me… Read more »

Actually, Shambo, I have one more thing to say, for you to refer to someone’s “sagging skin” is just vile, “Faltering Minds” –REALLY- Have you no respect for anyone? To mock the aging process is simply absurd–time waits for no one–you included. But you, you sound like you know it all, already. Wisdom comes from reading liberally biased information, right, because everyone else is so dumb. Good luck with that. How smug all the Huffington Post and New York Times readers are–now finding out the joke is on them. Let’s see what happens in 10 years when you are trying… Read more »
