Special Snowflakes Complain Their Activism Is Causing Them Emotional Problems At School

‘Sissyfication of Millennials’: Ivy League Students Complain of Mental Stress and Failing Grades Due to Their Campus Diversity Activism

Social justice activists at Brown University have complained their activism is taking an emotional toll on them and that their extracurricular activities have at times caused them to fail classes. Perhaps unsurprisingly, their claims won them some derision on social media.

This “mental, emotional and physical stress” was featured in an article Thursday in the Providence, Rhode Island campus newspaper, the Brown Daily Herald which reported:

“There are people breaking down, dropping out of classes and failing classes because of the activism work they are taking on,” David, an undergraduate whose name has been changed to preserve anonymity, said. Throughout the year, he has worked to confront issues of racism and diversity on campus.

His role as a student activist has taken a toll on his mental, physical and emotional health. “My grades dropped dramatically. My health completely changed. I lost weight. I’m on antidepressants and anti-anxiety pills right now. (Counseling and Psychological Services) counselors called me. I had deans calling me to make sure I was okay,” he said. […]

Justice Gaines ’16, who uses the [gender neutral] pronouns xe, xem and xyr, said student activism efforts on campus are necessary. “I don’t feel okay with seeing students go through hardships without helping and organizing to make things better.”

These special snowflakes are having panic attacks which cause them to miss class, and they actually tell their teachers these are the reasons, and the teachers give them a pass.

A student activist for Latino issues told the paper, “Homework was the least of my worries.”

The headline for the originating article is “Schoolwork, advocacy place strain on student activists”, and this is my favorite comment

It’s increasingly difficult to create effective satire, because reality is clearly more absurd than any fiction imaginable.

These Special Snowflakes have already created a situation whereby employers will be/are highly skeptical about hiring them. This just adds to the tendency of employers to send out the “Thank you for your application. We have decided to go in a different direction” email, which will certainly not end with “please apply again at a later time”, because companies want nothing to do with whiny people who whine, who will blow off work for their activism, not too mention being too emotionally drained or something to do their jobs correctly. Oh, and then there’s that little thing about these Special Snowflakes being a constant threat for a lawsuit.

    There’s always UBER or the State Department…

    Responsible HR departments do their due diligence, and all that they have to do these days is Google an applicant’s name. They’ll find the activists, who just love to get their names in the paper, and the applicants will never know why they didn’t get called in for an interview.

    The same thing with résumés indicating coursework or — Heaven forfend! — a major or minor in Women’s and Gender Studies or African-American Studies or some other cockamamie field, because such persons are walking discrimination lawsuits.

    The student cited goes to Brown, Ivy League grads usually do find it somewhat easier to find work
    SO UNFAIR !!! less than 10% were neither employed nor in grad study programs class of 2014

    I doubt many went into retail or fast food
