You know who we, as Americans, should ostracize? People who do the HURRYUPHURRYUPHURRYUP trot toward an obviously closing subway door before STOPPING DEAD IN THEIR TRACKS as soon as they cross the threshold, causing everyone behind them to either get stuck on the platform or lose an arm.

“When Generation Wuss creates something they have so many outlets to display it that it often goes out into the world unfettered, unedited, posted everywhere, and because of this freedom a lot of the content displayed is rushed and kind of shitty and that’s OK—it’s just the nature of the world now—but when Millennials are criticized for this content they seem to collapse into a shame spiral and the person criticizing them is automatically labeled a hater, a contrarian, a troll. And then you have to look at the generation that raised them, that coddled them in praise—gold medals for everyone, four stars for just showing up—and tried to shield them from the dark side of life, and in turn created a generation that appears to be super confident and positive about things but when the least bit of darkness enters into their realm they become paralyzed and unable to process it.”

Technically, I prefer “Generation Yay” but I won’t quibble.
Bret Easton Ellis has editors, so what’s his excuse?
