As an artist who has studied human behavior for the better part of my 49 years, I can honestly say “huggable moments” are a societal issue more than a generational one. It’s easy to point our fingers at the Millennials and Gen-Zs for this, but as an instructor for the past 15 years I can tell you that the Gen-Xs (my generation) are not much better. Let’s face it, we as a society have been taught, and have taught, that everybody gets a trophy (notice I didn’t say earned a trophy) and if you don’t get your way, well it’s time to pout, bitch, moan, and file grievances. No wonder we have such a messed up, politically correct, and politically insane environment – unfortunately, we did earn that!

Let’s all put on our big boy and girl underpants today, and move on.
