If you are considering some concern-trolling about how Kids These Days get a trophy just for participating, here are a few things to think about:
- In real life, that hardly ever actually happens.
- There are a lot of kids (and grown-ups, too) for whom group activities, crowds, etc. are really hard to cope with and for whom "participation" is a pretty big deal.
- You're a heartless jackass intent on ruining things for everyone else under the guise of "just telling it like it is," and perhaps the problem is actually you.
