Millennials Have Gone Mad
Real talk, guys. Pornhub is now putting up pre-video “trigger warning” disclaimers, warning viewers that the content you are about to see may be offensive and demoralizing to some. Don’t ask me how I know this, I just do.
If you’ve never heard of a trigger warning, it’s essentially a preface to any sort of article or video that may cause a person to experience some sort of PTSD. Trigger warnings are like the “safe space” of the online world, and while they may be necessary in extreme cases, they are by-and-large retarded. (Sorry, “Trigger Warning” if un-P.C. terms like retarded offend you).
My point is, they belong NOWHERE NEAR porn. Porn is supposed to be degrading. That’s the whole point. You’ll never find a feminist in porn. EVER. And yes, I blame the millennials for this inconvenience because only millennials are so sensitive that they have to trigger-warn an orgy.
Online comedian and sensation, JP Spears, does an immaculate job at capturing just how ridiculous millennials can be and this hilarious video is proof.
Referring to Facebook as the original social networking platform is a bit like giving Thomas Edison credit for the fruition of the lightbulb. Nikola Tesla was the real inventor just like Tom from MySpace should be acknowledged as the inventor of social media.
MySpace was great. You could unleash all your brooding, built-up teenage angst in the form of musical interests, photos of you in Hot Topic gear, and general bitching about how unfair and marginalized society is.
Essentially, it’s what Facebook SHOULD have been, but instead has become a vessel for political polarity, agendas, and advertisements.
In his book, “Zucked,” this one-time investor of Facebook Roger McNamee, delves into the dark underbelly of Facebook, strongly discouraging people to take the seemingly harmless platform so lightly. In this opinion piece in the NYT, it discusses McNamee’s concerns and warns of the insidious nature of Facebook and why you might want to consider canceling your account.
