A newly released study shows that twenty-five percent of students were absolutely TRAUMATIZED by the result of the 2016 Presidential election.
I swear I’m not making this up.
This is a real study from Arizona State University.
A quarter of students found the 2016 so traumatic they now report symptoms of PTSD, according to a new study.
Researchers surveyed Arizona State University students around the time of President Donald Trump‘s inauguration in 2017, and some had stress scores on par with that of school shooting witnesses’ seven-month follow-ups.
I’m sorry… what?!?
Hillary’s loss was as traumatic as witnessing a school shooting?
This isn’t just being disappointed and, ‘Welp, we’ve gotta do better next time.’
This is ‘OMG! I COULD HAVE DIED!‘ while hyperventilating.
I think it’s safe to say that we’ve bubble-wrapped our kids a little bit too much.
Melissa Hagan, an assistant professor of psychology at San Francisco State University was the lead researcher. Hagan stated that she believes the ‘divisive tone’ about race, identity, and what makes a valuable American ‘really heightened stress for a lot of people’.
Twenty-five percent of the 769 students, who were an even mix of genders and races and socioeconomic backgrounds, reported ‘clinically significant’ levels of stress.
The most severe cases were seen among women, black, and non-white Hispanic students, who were 45 percent more likely to feel distressed by the 2016 run between Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Remind me of the definition of a ‘white Hispanic’ person?
Oh, right. I remember now — someone that is free to be demonized by Leftists because they don’t further the progressive agenda.
The study revealed that most students, 56.4 percent were not happy with the result of the election. Of those, 20 percent were somewhat dissatisfied, and, according to the article, 38 percent are completely dissatisfied. (Doesn’t that make 58 percent??? I’m assuming that it’s a typo and it should read 56 percent.) The students that were satisfied broke down this way, 18.5 percent completely satisfied and 25 percent somewhat satisfied.
In terms of how the election impacted their lives, 65 percent said there was no impact. Ten percent said they saw a positive impact.
But a quarter were so crestfallen their symptoms would be deemed a medical condition, severe enough to interfere with their work, social activities, and personal relationships.
And yet — these fragile millennials wonder why we call them snowflakes.
THIS IS WHY WE CALL THEM SNOWFLAKES.
Of course, the study broke things down into identity boxes because heaven forbid you think like an individual instead of lock-step with your perceived ‘victim group’ based on immutable characteristics.
White people were less affected than black and non-white Hispanic students. Women were 45 percent more likely to be distressed than their male peers. Non-Christians were far more distressed than Christians, the study found.

Imagine the utterly fragile leftist students that conservative students will have to go to classes with. Those savvy, tough free-thinking kids have to hide their eye-rolling from those emotionally-stunted individuals because that’s probably a ‘microaggression’ or something, and if they were caught, they’d be brought to some sort of college tribunal to be tried as a witch, or worse — a conservative.
As for the women that were more likely to be ‘distressed’ about the result of the election — these are the same chicks that walk around in vagina costumes, or completely topless and demand to be taken seriously while not being objectified by their body parts. They are quite literally beyond parody.
Leftist Fragility is real.
