My mistake was not linking to the specific arsehat “treat Gen Y like <x>” generalisation that triggered my comment.

@AlexFGoldberg …. we do on the basis of their date of birth. And ALL I said was that swap one for the other and we soon see it’s wrong.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AlexFGoldberg

@AlexFGoldberg Not all. We wouldn’t make a generalised statement on the basis of someone’s religion of race, we notice that, and yet…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AlexFGoldberg

@AlexFGoldberg Nor did I say that, FFS. How very dare you. But in some contexts we notice very quickly the stupidity of generalisations.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AlexFGoldberg

Apparently I did not explain and justify the entire universe of human thought in a single tweet. O woe is me!

@post_rock0 So did you notice that my tweet, before @TheLegendaryRob wanted explanations, was solely about Gen X / Gen Y etc?

I think I might attempt making some food now. Work is looking like it won’t be happening at all.

via Janetter for Mac

@TheLegendaryRob Look at your own words. “Some” is not “all”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

@TheLegendaryRob Because you’re making assumptions about an individual based on a (perceived) generalised characteristics of a group.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

@TheLegendaryRob Well my entire point is that such generalisations ARE dumb.

@TheLegendaryRob I’m afraid that right now I can’t think of any way to be clearer about this.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

@TheLegendaryRob That is, making an assumption about someone based entirely on when they were born is dumb and offensive.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

@TheLegendaryRob No. Generalising that “Gen X do / are <something>” is as stupid and wrong in a way that’s unacceptable with other groups.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

@TheLegendaryRob Yeah maybe have another try at thinking that through. Think about what “generalisation” means”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

To see if your silly “Gen-X”, “Gen-Y” bullshit generalisation is acceptable, replace it with “Jew” and see how that plays out.

@newswithnipples You say that now, but wait until the poison starts taking effect.
