If you are dumb enough to go on twitter and do this, you probably weren’t smart enough to be part of NASA.

    Is there a formal name for this idiotic mindset that everything is suddenly permissible because 20xx (insert current year here)? Perhaps the chronology fallacy or something like that? The phrase, “being on the right side of history,” also fits here as well.

    And what is with this mentality that seems to be prevailing in the internet age that I can be a complete jerk to anyone and everyone I meet (because 2018, obviously)? Whatever happened to showing at least a modicum of respect to others because they are fellow human beings?

    An amendment to my previous comment. The tweet could not load due to my slow internet connection, so I presumed the commenter’s statement “because this is 2018” was a direct statement from the fired individual, though I can now see that wasn’t the case.

    However! My recent comment still stands, as I have seen it used seriously on multiple occasions that the current day and age makes things acceptable when they were not in the past because… it is the current day and age.

    “Chronological snobbery”

    This might demonstrate one major reason why this sort of behavior is increasingly more common and more brazen — the so-called adults, and specifically the so-called men, don’t have the guts to do anything about it, but instead, reward it.

    In the now-deleted tweet, a woman [sic] who goes by Naomi H on Twitter wrote, “EVERYONE SHUT THE FUCK UP I GOT ACCEPTED FOR A NASA INTERNSHIP,” NBC reported.

    Homer Hickam, a former NASA engineer and a member of the National Space Council User Advisory Group, saw the tweet and replied “Language.” Naomi, likely unaware of who Hickam was, told him to “Suck my d**** and balls.”

    … Hickam went on to say that she [sic] “deserves a position in the aerospace industry” and that he is doing what he can to secure her [sic] a new spot. “They have told me she may reapply,” he concluded in his blog post.

    Notice an amusing kink in the above quoted material, the words “fuck” and “balls” are uncensored, but the word “dick” is censored.
