    They'll promote anything against the nuclear family. This is the result, kids being raised by single moms. This is just the beginning.

    The problem is more complex than most realize. Life is now so expensive both parent have to work and hardly anyone has a schedule that let's them be home when their kids are home from school so kids are always with babysitters and they can't participate in as many activities since their parents are always working to scrape by a measly barely making it existence that we've been brainwashed into thinking is normal. The entire country has gone insane I think. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were our choices for president. Just typing their names in the same sentence as president makes me feel queasy.

    Grown-ups are morons that think kids are as stupid as they are. There is nothing worse than the discovery that you were given a trophy because you showed up. People are so screwed up these days from nonsensical horsepucky like this. What .... no trophy for drinking the whole glass of water! Pathetic! I love Gavin McInnis's approach, and his child is CLEARLY loving it! Our kid's are only stupid if we don't challenge them. You do know that they can use computers now ..... right? Kids could always use computers ..... we just didn't have them before. Gee - I wonder how they can do that huh. You teach your kid to walk and talk, then I guess your job is done? Your child gets their vocabulary from you, so if they are morons ..... it's on you!

    Gavin was being incredibly careful with his baby. As you saw the kid didn't cry and was loving it. I loved this kind of shit as a kid. If you read the biography of General Grant you will find out his parents gave him a horse to ride for miles all day long alone at age 6.With his son he would come home from work and playfully insult him, his son would reply in kind, then Grant would say: " I refuse to take such comment from a man of your stature"and the wrestling would begin. Wonderful, wonderful stuff, the only way a man can touch his son, women don't have this and its kind of sad. Women have no ritual or game where they have physical contact for just plain fun. The MMA only recently started female fighting. Rough housing is what turns boys into mentally healthy men.

    wealth is a reward of hard , smart work. Trophies are a reward for being the victor. Capitalism takes no prisoners, but socialism says we are all the same unless you are a LEADER. So, balance is key . I feel this wussy stuff is a slow path to slim soldiers, drinking soy milk or they become the screaming fools of ANTIFA and the left.

    Encouraging mediocrity makes absolutely no sense. These kids are now entering the workplace. Ever managed any of these people? Well, I have and it's a fucking train wreck! They get their feelings hurt and get defensive over every little thing. They also do not take responsibility for their mistakes because they believe they don't make mistakes. They think that any reason at all it a valid reason to miss or take off work - they don't care if they're out of sick days or vacation, they want as many days as your most senior long time employees have. They think they should be 100% equals with all other employees all the way up through senior management. Constructive criticism, no matter how gentle, brings them to a desperate feeling of being under attack and their defensive mode is totally off the rails. I knew this extreme coddling would bite everybody in the ass when they started that shit back in the late 80s/early 90s. I pretty much tell them that it's grown up time now and that anybody can be replaced.

    when you call everyone a winner then none is. if you make them think they won when they know they didnt it'll make them feel hollow inside because while it might feel good getting something for nothing, it never compares to busting your ass and earning it. Instant gratification will do nothing but kill the incentive to try new things

    Years ago, my son was a pretty damn good wrestler. He went to States pretty much every year from the age of 10. He finished 3rd twice - never first, unfortunately. What always struck me at these tournaments was the number of kids who - even in mid-teens - would cry, openly, after losing. As a boxer, I never understood that. There were deeply disappointing losses in my boxing career - thankfully, not that many, but they did occur. I would have NEVER allowed my opponent to see my disappointment in loss, however. If he beat me in the ring, he wasn't going to beat me in my soul. That's how I coached my fighters for almost a decade. It's OK to lose, just so long as you don't get comfortable losing...and as long as you left it all out there. You don't quit, you don't cry, and you don't get special recognition for simply participating. That's absurd, it's weak, and it's the exact problem with our society nowadays. Why do you think that most of the people you see in the Antifa crowds look like people you wouldn't trust in your own home? Because they are shit-heel, entitled slobs who want to be recognized for zero accomplishment. It's the "I showed up - so honor me" generation. Cause and effect. I seriously wish I could grab a handful of these bedwetting weaklings and time-travel back a few decades - let them walk around in my neighborhood. I goddamn guarantee that, when they got back, you wouldn't hear a PEEP out of them anymore about being "offended" or needing "safe spaces". Safe spaces where I grew up meant you made it back to your house without getting into a fist fight - and these were neighbors who went to school together, and played on the same sports teams. Stop voting for Democrats and maybe we have a chance. Keep voting for Democrats, and pretty soon, helmets will be required in offices, cars and bus-stations. Kids will wear inflatable suits, and bubble helmets to school. Passing a note to a girl a kid likes will be considered "hateful" and "sexist", and the boy will need reprogramming, and encouraged to send notes to other boys as well. No? This is from a "Teaching my Preschooler (yup) About Gender Identity" article on Planned Parenthood's website - just a snippet. NOW tell me I'm off base.
    "Be thoughtful about your choices when it comes to books, toys, entertainment, clothes, decorations, and other things you surround your little one with. These choices have an influence on your kid’s understanding of gender and what it means. Putting daughters in pink princess rooms and boys in blue sports rooms before they’re old enough to choose for themselves can send the message that they have to like certain things because of their gender."
    We've lost our minds!

    ...and I'm gonna bet that all these insane, extreme, leftist, post modernist, ass hats all have a closet full of participation trophies. The narcissism of these kids is off the charts. They are completely incapable of self reflection and consider their flippant and completely unresearched opinions to be the God given truth because they've been told that they are right no matter what their entire life. We are just now starting to see this manifest and I believe they will have completely destroyed this country and have all of us all eating out of garbage cans over the course of the next 50 years.

    Help help, I'm triggered and offended! I never wore a bicycle helmet. Played baseball, basketball, wrestled, fought with sticks like swords as a kid. Boys were boys and girls were girls. I played sometimes rough & got hurt and grew up strong. Never got a 23rd place trophy for anything. If I won, I won, if not I learned to try harder and still had fun. Nowadays kids are total wimps and offended by everything. People have NO idea how to train a kid to be strong and confident nowadays because they (most likely) are of the wuss generation themselves, and are themselves a wuss. If a real disaster happens or a war here on our soil they have no hope of not being offended and probably cower in the corner and cry with their trigger card in hand.

    I remember when I was growing up they gave us all the white ribbon at these events for participating. I know for a fact I threw mine in the garbage almost immediately after they gave it to me and I remember looking in the bin and there were at least 50 of those ribbons in the bin too. However when I won the blue, red or green ribbon (1st, 2nd, or 3rd place) I still have that in the little wooden box after all these years. This chick that saved her participation trophy is delusional. Retarded. Nobody cares and she is shit. But go ahead and save this idiotic trophy if you want. Whatever. But I am going to ridicule her for doing it. Because I am right.

    Kids need to be taught that there will always be some things they suck at. Yes it stings, but you just need to move on and find something you excel at and care about. Find yourself! "Trophies for all" demeans not just the kids receiving pity, but also the kids who actually do excel; it shits on their accomplishments. And the woman who thinks that the term "wussification" is homophobic only thinks that because she buys into the stereotype that homosexuals are wussies--which, ironically, makes _her_ homophobic.

    Libs are all about feelings. Nobody should ever be offended. Nobody should ever feel slighted. If anyone dare say something that they dont like then they should lose their careers and be shipped off to some gulag. Parents have been pushing that leftist BS now for a generation or two. But now we have these 22 year olds who have never had to face losing. Never had to face getting stomped in T ball or not being the absolute best. And the reality is... most of them are just average. And they cant handle that. So many years of 'Your so super special!'.... and they aren't. And they have no skills on how to deal with not being what their parents said they were. So the government is supposed to come in and make it all better. Redistribute wealth to them. Level the playing field to the lowest common denominator so they never feel less than the smart kids.

    (0:35) I guess you missed the part in the Bible where Jesus overturned tables, got angry, and threw the moneychangers out of the temple. You missed the story of Jesus wrestling with who He was for 40 days in the WILDERNESS. You missed the detail that he fasted during that time. You missed the passive-aggressive discussion he had with Paul and how he was going to deny him three times. You missed the idea that His strength and leadership was enough that grown men dropped what they were doing to follow Him. Weakness was not a virtue back then, and Jesus was able to draw crowds of thousands. People walked for days to see Him and listen to Him. You missed the part where Jesus is quoted saying "If you don't have a sword, sell your cloak to buy one." All these examples show Jesus as a Man's Man, not a wuss. I wouldn't follow a wuss around, would you? Winter's coming. If wussy Ben Affleck said "trade your coat for a sword and I'll stand beside you" I'd say buzz off. Now, if Jason Statham said the same thing... totally different. I'd ask what he has in mind.
