Teacup Generation

The Teacup Generation typically refers to many people in the Generation Y generation or what some call the Millennials.[1][2] Teacup is a slang term for someone who is fragile or lacks resiliency. It generally is only a reference towards actions, attitude and financial capacity, and not physiology. Further the term China (a reference to Fine China dinnerware) is used to refer to those raised by teacups, and denotes a greater fragility and lack of resilience beyond teacup.


The great conservative President of the United States Theodore Roosevelt remarked a century ago that our society was perfecting its "cult of nonvirility" with "untried men who lived at ease."

"Over-sentimentality, over-softness, in fact washiness and mushiness are the great dangers of this age and of this people. Unless we keep the barbarian virtue, gaining the civilized ones will be of little avail." — Theodore Roosevelt


Over the last 30 years the liberals such as the labor unions and especially the teachers' unions use tax payer citizen money to promote public education indoctrination and public school values including gun control to help create a entitlement mentalityin the Teacup generation. According to critics, teachers' unions such as the National Education Association (largest union is the USA) and the American Federation of Teachers are not so much professional organizations as they are liberal Nanny state lobbying groups, and they are most likely responsible for the removal of Conservative values, God, and Christian values from public school classrooms. These unions require mandatory paycheck deductions of $1000 per year or more that not only fund Union expenses but also gets donated to political campaigns.

Many teacups and their liberal Generation Y parents tend to be strongly anti-gun[3] while frequently playing with video game "guns". Starting with the massive television exposure of the Baby boomers, the Internet - video game playing of Generation X and now the social media reality TV world of the Teacup Generation modern people have been dumbed down more than any other generation. Television, reality TV and social media are examples of aspects of the media that dumbs down its audience. This over-exposure to inane media without actually going out and "living life" results in Teacup tendencies.


  1. Recognize your personal responsibilities, and that no one is going to care about you or your family more than you do.
  2. Build up resiliency and independence in your life, to maintain or better the life you have, in good times and bad.
  3. Convince others to be more resilient and build community, its much harder to be pushed over when your standing together.
  4. Having to overcome difficulty. During times of great difficulty in history, although there are many people who falter/break under the pressure, others become more resilient as a result of tougher times. Should a Western World and/or global economic depression occur, many Generation Y individuals could become more resilient than the baby boom generation (grew up in a time of affluence) and Generation X.
