    Modern day political correctness for you.

    It's along the same lines as school sports days where everyone gets a medal.

    I'm the most sensitive person I know. I let absolutely everything bother me. I don't know how to get over it, otherwise I would have done so by now :lol:

    Kudos to you for admitting that though. It can be difficult to admit when we're vulnerable. So that's pretty brave of you anyway.

    Because mommy and daddy babied them too much, too protective and sheltered. And then when they are thrown into the real world they don't know what to do with themselves?
    hmmm, i see right i understand but the kind of stuff i'm talking about are just little quarrels and small thing in life
    for example a friday detention in school, why would ppl cry over it? but they do

    so they cry which helps them to fail more miserably? They're not thinking straight get a grip

    I wholly agree with you however taking racist insults everyday for a year everytime that person sees you forces you to grow a thick skin
    However your 3rd line i disagree with because i'm not a bully and i'm super quiet+ introverted, i'm more one to take the **** from others rather than give it out.

    I can be nice, well actually i treat everyone the same and just sorta keep on doing what i'm doing depending what i'm doing and what the person is asking me. I'll just acknowledge your point or whatever you want to say then be silent then just go back to doing whatever i was doing, it's really the same for everyone really....

    -.- natural selection is better
    Natural selection has no place in modern society. If natural selection had its way, you and I would probably both be dead.

    I wish I had a thicker skin when I browse TSR.

    All these 'I only got 9 A*'s, my life is over' threads really trigger me.

    It doesn't because everyone just wants to save everyone else and let no-one die, thus as a result the stupid reproduce just like the smart.

    Which is fine. There's no problem with that.

    In any case natural selection doesn't prey upon the stupid, it preys upon the unlucky. Even the fittest, smartest individual alive can get hit by a bus.

    You really think natural selection favours the smart?

    Lol no, it favours the big and strong.

    I think you're mixing up natural selection with eugenics.

    That's funny because people assume that i'm a **** and a huge knob to others when in fact you're assuming wrong and you have no solid evidence to base it on. In any case, like i've said to another comment, i'm not actually a **** and i'm just gonna treat everyone the same, whether it be acknowledging you then ignoring afterwards or whatever i'm just a quiet introverted person who spends his life on the internet
