Millenials Taking Offense

Tavon Bass, Staff Writer


There are 2 sides to the argument that Millennials have become “soft” or take “too much” offense. I believe that some parts of both arguments stand to be true, but whether you like it or not, I’m here to share my take in this article.

To begin with the first argument that millennials are indeed very soft and too easily offended, It can easily be interpreted this way by really anybody who now has to watch what they say or do much more closely than before. This specifically applies to people of higher power or status who can fall from stardom quickly amongst the fans and consumers for a slip up or saying something wrong. Many people will take offense quickly, especially if they do not have a good understanding or perceive others actions correctly and this can cause a huge confusion that could have been ignored had someone not taken things so seriously.

On the other hand, I strongly believe that it has become much more popular amongst millenials to hold not only themselves accountable for their actions, but also others, which is something that I think any logical person could respect. I think that there is no way to better yourself if you do not take responsibility for your actions and hold yourself accountable in any situation that you can. This is why I believe that millenials to some extent have the right to become offended when they need to a certain extent, this being because times have changed and so has the subject matter. On the same hand though, however, I believe some people can be downright spiteful or be doing completely too much and that to me is unacceptable.
