Everyone is always talking about how kids today are rude and suck, what do you think about that? Why is that statement wrong or right?

Most of them are. In America anyway. It's a mixture of the last generation becoming massive pussies and not properly raising their kids, the pussification of America, and all the shit that's on Tv, the kinds of music they listen to, and Facebook.

A few other small factors as well.

Tv, most certainly. Music, that is iffy for one reason in my mind that stands out.
Music is a way for teenagers like myself use to vent their frustrations and get away from this wasteland of stupidity the youth of america are turning this once great country into. It has nothing to do with the artist, it's how the kids interprate the lyrics.

Kids are still funny as fuck, the other day i was in the store and this little kid wuz all enthusiastic and was like, "Mommy is that the new Batman game ???? My head just explllllooooooooded !!"

I couldn't help but to laugh at how the mom conveniently ignored him with a "Thats nice honey" as the boy stared into the glass case with his hopes up that she was going to by it for him

When I pictured this in my head, it was funnier than I thought it would be at first

But yeah, spoiled self centered and rude.

Kids are enjoying a great time in their lives and don't need grumpy old people ruining it for them.


It made more sense in my head.

The generations worsen gradually. Overall, the present generation is more technology oriented. What may bring about more scientists.

you have a very divisive way of thinking

maybe that's so you can feel superior because you don't fit into either group and are "above" that nonsense

Bullshit. Kids don't change. That's just what old people say when they don't want to admit they're old, grumpy farts who don't understand the young people anymore.

Yes. I think it's to do with a number of factors really; music in particular (don't pout and say they can look for good music, cause it's just not out in the 'mainstream'), rock has become less prominent, and solo artists and boy-band groups have taken over the market, so the only things kids are fed these days are 'pussy on my dick, tryna' make it stick yo', or 'girl you don't know you're beautiful, that's what makes you beautiful'. It's basically turning them into smug, loveless, gangster wannabe pussies.

Another factor is things becoming more digital and acceptable (due to Glee; that fucking show). Most kids just spend their time watching commentaries on YouTube now and not giving a shit about their social lives. It's also a lot to do with this generation being smug and indifferent; opting to 'just ignore it'. Fuck that, if you ignore it it's only going to get worse. I know arguing or typing up about it isn't gonna make a difference, but it's not going to do any harm or make them any more likely to delve deeper into becoming shut-in, obese, obnoxious douchebags; who think it's okay cause we ignore them and it's seen as more fucking acceptable now.
