Out of all types of cringe-worthy material, the "badass guy/girl" trope is one of the worst. Some people really feel the need to let the world know how much of a badass they are as they use guns/drugs/have tattoos/are anti-liberal or are just plain mean. However, such attempts at bad-assery are usually cringe-worthy rather than cool to all those around such people. Here, we made a list of all the laughable attempts at trying to appear cool and edgy. Prepare for some cringing, then scroll down below and leave a vote for those that made you laugh (or cringe).

"Hey snowflake, in the real world you don't get a participation trophy, not everybody is a winner, no one owes you anything, screaming doesn't make you right, sometimes you actually lose, crying doesn't solve problems, nothing is free in this world, people are going to say things that you don't like and you are not special!"

Of course everyone is special. We're each a bit of the universe that's conscious of itself for a short period of time, irrespective of any personal philosophy of life. Think about how you're going to spend that time, is all I'll say.

Actually, it is incredibly inaccurate. There are plenty of times where you will get something for free (I have), someone WILL owe you something if you perform a service for them, and there are a myriad of people who are, in fact, quite special.

Conservative: Fuck "the left" their all a load of snowflakes who hate everyone! Why don't you love your country you fucking communist! Liberal: Because that usually means hating minorities especially when they aren't from my country. Conservative: Shut the fuck up you libtard. Liberal: No, you shut the fuck up. Conservative: No thanks, I believe in free speech! Liberal: What do you think of lgbt pride? Conservative: It's wrong and we should ban it. Liberal: Lol Conservative: Snowflake!

The shirt lacks brevity and sartorial decency. But he is the one shirt-wearer on here who is partly right. Some on the far left have a speech tolerance/snowflake problem, a refusal to accept people saying things they don't like. D'Nesh D'Souza, Christina Hoff Sommers, Ben Shapiro and Ann Coulter have a right to say things, without little liberal arts babies throwing milkshakes at them, interrupting or blocking the events or screaming 'Get your hate speech off of this campus!'

Aria Whitaker

You really think those on the Right are any different? They were burning their Nikes and destroying coffee makers because those companies said "things they dont like" for pete's sake!! Fox News is constantly crying about people saying mean things about Christians or conservatives....those critics ALSO have a "right to say things"...but somehow you dont call out ALL the conservative whining, hand wringing and pearl clutching over petty crap. Interesting.
