Having tattoos and piercings is not unprofessional.
What’s unprofessional is turning down an aspiring employee due to superficial reasons and not their skill level or experience.

Does anyone else find it odd that our society expects 14-year-old kids to know what jobs they will want for the rest of their lives, but doesn’t believe an adult woman when she says she doesn’t want to be a mother?
This is so applicable to the way women are treated now, and have always been treated. Remember “female-hysteria”? Label and entire group of people as crazy, and suddenly you don’t have to listen to their opinions. Rape culture? They’re crazy. Misogyny? They’re crazy. There is nothing really more infuriating than the fact that anything a woman suggests has to be validated by a “rational” man.
have you ever looked at a window and wondered how injured you would be if you jumped out of it
not in a suicidey way
more of a “if a killer clown broke into my house right now, would jumping out the window be a reasonable escape plan” way
why isn’t society more interested in the real and terrible threat that is killer clowns
Because the Winchesters deal with them.
If anyone else was forced to sit through The Project’s section on the generation gap just now and finds themselves as infuriated as I am, I would not be surprised.
Yes, we are the ‘switched on’ generation. We have 24/7 access to the internet through our smart phones. No, we often don’t visit libraries anymore, because we literally have every piece of information available to us in our pants pockets.
Yes, we are stereotyped as being the ‘why’ generation as in: why do I have to do it, why me, blah blah blah. Yet I could name numerous adults in other generations who have the exact same (if not worse) attitude towards hard work and commitment.
Yes, we enjoy the lifestyle that we were raised in. We take advantage of the numerous benefits growing up in a moderately stable economy had given us. Yet for the most part we are aware of how lucky this is, and how other previous generations have not been so lucky. You would be hard pressed to find a Gen Y’er who was not grateful to be in the generation they are for this reason.
You may have been the ‘free love’ generation, and joke about perhaps having had a bit too much love and not enough birth protection, resulting in us Gen Y’ers. Yet we STILL DO NOT have FREE LOVE. We live in a world where love is picketed outside courtrooms and defined in churches. We live in a world where we are told how to love, and if you do not land into these categories, that you are an abomination.
You say we will never amount to anything, will never lead any protests or world revolutions, as we are too busy chasing ‘likes’ on Facebook. Yet Facebook is the best way in our generation to raise awareness of a cause! 60,000 ‘likes’ on a photo which educates people about the importance of clean drinking water in impoverished countries is still 60,000 people which that message has reached. How is that something to joke about? Change BEGINS for our generation online. Caring about something online transfers to caring about it in person as well.
You brought us Gen Y’ers into a world where we were told from a young age that we were special and important, and sure, there are some people out there who took that as an excuse to be conceited and self absorbed, but they are NOT the rule, they are the EXCEPTION. If adults spent even an hour having a two-way, equal conversation with their child, they would find them both intelligent and opinionated. Opinionated BECAUSE of the confidence you gave us as children. Do not mistake this as a curse, it is a blessing. Be grateful your children feel strong enough in their beliefs not to stay quiet, but to instead stand up for what they believe in.
Being in Generation Y has allowed us to pursue education and careers to an extent previously unknown. We are using this, and we are becoming powerful. Watch as Generation Y is running businesses and countries, and realise you better stop complaining about our ‘text talk’ and starting listening to our opinions.
I am not saying my generation is perfect, I realise we have our flaws. As did each generation, and as will all following generations. I will not, however, stand by and let my generation be labelled as lazy, incompetent and uncaring.
So I say fuck you to your stereotypes.
So I say fuck you to the generations who raised us and now say we are “Gen Y monsters”.
So I say fuck you to anyone who believes that my generation will amount to nothing.
If you think the biggest problem our generation has is shortening our words, you have another thing coming.
Watch out, because Generation Y is coming, and we are not fucking amused.
