Are people today more prone to whining about things that upset them?
Offensive images and statements have always been part of society, What doesn't bother one may insult someone else. What happened to having a thick skin and turning the other cheek?
Different personalities with different perspectives of life will act upon a comment/statement, a vision/image, a situation differently. One who grew up seeing or had been involved in many diversities in life will react more calmly than a person or persons who were sheltered, or who did not experience hardships or adverse life situations. I see this on a daily basis. One must experience life in different stages or situations to grow as a person and learn from these situations. Sometimes these life experiences 'hardens' a person to things that are not important and focuses on the what is more of a priority. Then life's unimportant hiccups can become just a good laugh that can be thrown to the wind. The above image shouldn't let people feel insulted or bias on past race situations but rather as a joke to be discarded as unimportant. Kathleen
Politics has made it far too easy to complain. In the job market, employers aren't appreciative of their employees. To add insult to inury, a degree from an instuton of higher learning aren't worth the paper they're printed.
Yes...guess its the increased stress of living today. I think that with technology, people tend to have to do and complete things faster...take writing, for example, we have to complete lots of articles to get that bit of attention, and fast.
I believe with the advocacy of talking over every last detail of anything that upsets us (rather then bottling it up) we have become great whiners. It seems we are unable to take a joke, or find or own way without running our mouths to anyone who will listen to us complain and whine.
Nah, I think there have been winers since the beginning. We just hear more of it now with things like Twitter, Facebook, and even HubPages.
That being said, it's still important to be able to take a joke and handle life. Nothing wrong with self-reflection, but self-pity has never helped anyone. Just buckle down and do your thing; life's not always easy.
100%. people these days whine about everything and it makes me sick. it's like they need something to whine about just to make themselves feel important.
Society has changed so much which also have born different thoughts from different walks of life. It would probably be best to let things be and do the best we can to make what is better to shine. This way, I think there's more to get from a positive spirit than mumbling about things that make us sick. Still so many good things are there worth working the best out for.
I agree with Nightwork4, it is as though if people weren't complaining, they would have nothing to do. So many people use this as a crutch. Complaining , whining , and blaming everyone else for what they lack in their lives. I think everyone's destiny is in their own hands, stop complaining and change it if you don't like it. But for goodness shake, stop whining!
Its the fact that lawyers have turned a lot of people in this country into a sue-happy bunch of jerks who feel they're entitled to whatever they want... a lot of these people who sue dont even find the materials they sue over as offensive... they sue because they're too damned lazy to work!

If America is such a bad country, why not just leave?Some people are so critical of America. They can find very little that is good about it. Why stay here? I know that having the money to move could be used as an excust. But, 'where there's a will, there's a way.'The irony of the criticism is that...

It seems that with all of the rituals, the true message of the teacher was lost. One does not need customs and rituals to find what they are looking for. The rituals that we practice are not important. What is important, is a question one has to answer for themselve's and it should not be at the...
