Wussification of America
I know this seems way off topic, hence why I'm putting this in the off topic section, but it reality it is sort of on topic. This is what we're up against folks. Indoctrination and "wussification" from childhood...
I found a copy on youtube, but I just caught this episode on HBO Real Sports on the "Wussification of America". Quite disturbing.

Yep..its the truth.We are raising a nation of pansies that are being taught by pansies.
Its about socialists neutering Americans and removing the will to WIN from kids.Its about not preparing kids for the hard knocks that will come later from life. Its about teaching that we are all the same, when we are not. Its about teaching that winning is no better than losing, because it might offend some kids and damage their self esteem and its all a bunch of crap.
The weenines that are teaching this crap are losers and they love misery because misery loves company. They are part of the cannon-fodder types will get slaughtered like cattle when push comes to shove.
You win, you rule.
You lose, you motivate yourself to get better so that you can win the next time around. You suck it up and endeavor to persevere.
Without the motivation to get better at all that we do, we will never achieve anything better than mediocrity.
This nation was founded by men that new the difference between winning and losing. They stood against the strongest military in the world with little chance of winning and with the help of God they won the victory.
And what are we raising now? Kids that are afraid to play dodgeball? Parents that dont want their kids to suffer the humiliation of losing, so they want to ban it? You've got to be kidding me...
Jumping rope without a rope? Air hugs? Air fives ?
These socialist programs will be and and are fast becoming the end of this country.
hecks...the next step towards registration and confiscation.

In a few years we might all be able to spend a few days of peace and quiet at the New National Rifle & Pistol Air Championships - Camp Perry, Ohio.

I've known this and felt this way for quite a while now......this term describes things very well in my opinion. I just didn't know quite how to put it down in black and white. The sad reality of it all.

This seems good to these deluded fools, but it leads to bad things, and Ive got the scars to prove it.
I know not what this "overkill" means.

I have to disagree that children today are somehow less tough. The parents have become the wussies (and are even bullied by the children). In fact, I find children far more aggressive.
It might sound liberal, but I do blame the TV and video games (really the parents who use these as everyday babysitters). Everything in moderation. Competive sports are an outlet and parents are creating children with no real world outlet (for the rare few that can't cope). It creates a bad tempered me attitude.
BTW, tag is no longer allowed at my local school district. I guess you can be suspended for it. A while back I volunteered and suggested it as a game. The kids thought it was great but a group of parent chewed my ear off. You would have thought I was handing out matches.
One of the kids protested, and his mother went on to explain how he might not like it very much if he were the kid who was tagged out. The kid proceeded to explain he would do his best and just wait till the next game. I was struck how the child was parenting the parent.
I think children are seeking challenges, it is the parents who are messed up.

This whole "everybody gets a trophy" midset sickens me. At least I know that MY son will grow up to be a MAN. The boys with parents like these? Neutered males at best. No personal accountability, no self-respect, no real self-worth, no reason to have pride, no integrity...I could go on...

Bunny, I guess this is the result of the Liberal indoctrination in our schools and colleges. I'm 76 and grew up with the generation of hard knocks and can't stand to see whats happening with our country.

My wife and I watched a couple eat ice cream in front of their 1-year old at Baskin Robins.The kid was drooling but they did not give him any.I made this comment to this lady,"he certainly looks interested in the ice cream", the mother glared at me and said," he is too young for ice cream,it is bad for children his age".Really?I guess my parents ruined my life 50 years ago by giving me ice cream.How did we survive before we knew all these things that would ruin our lives?
As was mentioned earlier,the parents are a lot of the problem.They have no sand and neither will their children.The words I call them are not allowed on this forum.

I was in church a few Easters back. Parent went back with a 3 or so year old who was acting up. I heard the father tell the daughter, "Can we please go sit down now?"
I told the father, "Tell her don't ask."
The response, "Well I can make her."
I said, then just tell her when she gets home she is not going to get any Easter candy if you have to go out to the car."
The father listened, no sooner then the father started to walk out the door the child begged to go back and promised she would be good.
I honestly don't think parents know how to deal with their own emotions, so they blame the games, because they might have to step up and parent a child in a situation when they (the parent) has not quite grown out of the same childish thought process. What I think is truely not understood, is that parenting can also be a good step for the parent to get a grip on those childish feeling.
It is not a world of weak children, it is a world of weak adults.

What's next, kids won't be able to go outside, they may get a sun burn!
I am teaching my kids to be independent, that is why my 11yr old girl is a better shot than many of the adults I seen at the range and safer! It is parents duty to ensure their children will be able to make it in theses screw up times.

I'm only 25. My childhood is fresh memory. I played all kinds of sports. Was I the best at all of them? No, but it made me want to be. I practiced harder, and worked my butt off. Children are not getting softer, the parents are. "We don't want little Jimmy to have his feelings hurt" Why not? It builds character. Teach him to stand up for himself. Show him that its ok to work hard and achive his goals. Children are being taught that they get everything for free. I'm tired of parents who are afraid of their kids. Really? Put your foot down, and show them who the boss is.
God Bless America!!

You know...I agree with this. Parenting has been replaced with the X-box, cable TV and the internet. Then they send them to school for the teacher to babysit the problems. Then they blame the school system for disciplining their kid...amazing.

I believe the why not is because many parents don't have the character to parent, so they want to avoid a situation where they might have to parent. So they try to be friends.

The simple solution is for parents to do the only thing that can give you parenting experience, parent.
