Generation Wuss

When you don’t have the cushion of rising through the world economically then what do you rely on?
Well, your social media presence: maintaining it, keeping the brand in play, striving to be liked, to be liked, to be liked. And this creates its own kind of ceaseless anxiety. This is why if anyone has a snarky opinion of Generation Wuss then that person is labeled by them as a “douche”—case closed. No negativity—we just want to be admired.

VeeDub has it right. Eventually everyone has to stand on their own feet, or rot on their fat ass.

Gosh, I'm wondering how many Hipster Generation
"like me please" folks, clawing for electronic ad money,(or something) actually
realize the value of a douche.
Much like Langdolieres, maggots, and dung beetles, they DO eliminate of all that nasty "stuff".
