Millennials and Gen Xers got to live life during an era without the internet... as a Gen Z guy im kinda envious of them since the internet has changed the world drastically in the last 20 or so years
TheMasterMan1 · 22-25, M
@iamonfire696 So did some americans? But all I'm saying is not many ppl used the internet back then or rely on it like they do now.
iamonfire696 · 41-45, F
@TheMasterMan1 Of course, the internet has changed since then but you said almost no one had computers and that isn’t true. 50% of households had them in the late 90’s.
TheMasterMan1 · 22-25, M
@iamonfire696 And it only rose to 51% in 2000. Barely anyone was using the internet for social purposes back in those days like we do today. Hell it wasn't until 2009 that number rose to 77 percent. The point I was trying to make is that most low-income households didn't have a computer during the 90s or early 2000s. And those who did have one used it for completely different reasons than we use it today. Remember forum boards?
I am considered gen x so I think we are pretty cool

I don't. I see the younger people of today trusting their most important life decision (choosing a spouse) to a computer because they are too insecure to have the where with all to walk up to someone they like, introduce themselves, and ask them out. Instead, they have to know who they are on Facebook or Instagram, bypassing the most important element of a relationship. Face-to-face interaction. Talk to each other, hear their voice, see their mannerisms. That was all there was when I did all that, so you tried to look your best, not manipulate a pose or an image to post on the web for them to see. Where social media drops the ball is that even though it may match your traits, it's the face-to-face "smell test" that is the most important. Why not eliminate the middle man and do it yourself? If they are unwilling or too shy, then move on because it won't work.

I don't really categorize people like that.
Picklebobble2 · 56-60, M
The people themselves ?
Like the rest of us they're the product of morals and expectation of the era in which they were brought up.

Conflict arises because the previous generation likes to define the current one by comparison
ArishMell · 70-79, M
The people? That depends on them.

The terms? Absurd.

I don't really know what is a Gennex, a Genzed or a Millennial; would not know one if I held a door open for one; and refuse to use slang like that.

I do though know the words are broad-brush, age-related terms used within a strange fad for classifying people by sweeping stereotypes and generalising, in pointless database-like categories.

We are all people, not items in a supermarket's warehouse; and I judge individuals as individuals, of which age is only a part of it, and refuse to identify them by pseudo-sociological slang.
Nothing. I think the concept of judging an entire generation of millions of people based on stereotypes to be stupid.
@SandWitch who did I judge? You called me a sociopath for no reason. Get a life and get over it.

I like Zoomers. I think they'll make a better world for their children and grandchildren. Also all my students are Zoomers so I know a shit load now.
gen x have street smarts and common sense...the rest have no clue about life if they don't have the internet...just my opinion
I don’t think any of them (us? I count as a millennial) are nearly as bad or hopeless as people seem to love complaining about.
why every one being ladled with letters and numbers, children, young girls ,,boys, older men, and lady's
Ceinwyn · 22-25, F
They’re all different people. Generalisations are lazy.
i am biased, i prefer boomers and my own gen x.

These catagory names were invented by corporations to market their products to us. They want to strip us of our individuality and turn us into obedient consumers. You are not a catagory, you are an individual. Re-claim your person-hood!

SarahAndSamantha · 46-50, F
Same as it ever was. They were/are judged more harshly than they deserved/deserve by previous generations. And some day down the road, they'll probably do the same thing to future generations.
alongalone · M
We're all slaves of time. From the moment we're born, time owns us. So to me, all those labels mean shit. We're all in this boat together, all drifting away from the dry land of youth day by day
JustNik · 51-55, F
I think those labels are only useful for determining trends in society that are possibly harmful or beneficial. Applied to individuals, they’re useless.
Queendragonfly · 31-35, F
I think with this modern technology and how fast it develops, gen Z will turn a 180 evolution on this world when the rest are old or dead.
deadgerbil · 22-25, M
It's interesting how the oldest of the millennials will be knocking on the door of senior citizen status in 15 years
Bumbles · 51-55, M
Gen X is the best. We knew the old world, and for those of us who wanted to, could embrace the new world.
DiegoWolfe · 36-40
im a Xenial so i am a 20 pounds of fucked up in a 5 pound sack!
JohnnyNoir · 56-60, M
In all honesty, I don't think about them.
Haven't met enough of them to form an opinion.
Millennials are gods chosen people
ShiftingGears · 46-50, M
I enjoy being a part of "Generation X"
allygator18 · 22-25, F

The millennials (my group) will be the last to remember a world before the internet.
Literally every generation has both good and bad apples ... our most recent generations are no exception to this basic human tendency
ArtieKat · M
@BlueGreenGrey Precisely what I was going to say 👍
iamonfire696 · 41-45, F
I am a Millennial. I don’t really think about it though.
@iamonfire696 yeah...but a millennial with a head on her shoulders...good too see 🤗
iamonfire696 · 41-45, F
@beermeplease thank you for saying that 🩷

Being a fellow X'er, we are the coolest, we had the best tunes, tv, and movies, but fashion on the other hand got a bit scary at times.
melissa001 · 51-55, F
@melissa001 I also like Hawaiian shirts and Bermuda shorts. I liked the shits that looked like a tuxedo with tail. Boys didn't wear them. Lol
NativePortlander · 51-55
@melissa001 I had a few of the Hawaiian shirts, real silk and worth serious money today if I still had them.
melissa001 · 51-55, F
@NativePortlander mine were just cotton.

@SandWitch I've heard this sort of stuff since when I was a little kid, with parents panicking over screen time, videogames and what not. Years passed and last I checked my generation isn't any less or any more "social" than theirs or any other one before theirs.

It's the usual "the sky is falling, new generations bad 😮‍💨" kind of tired bullshìt that goes on since probably even before the Roman era.

The internet is the new TV: social life hasn't ended when boomers started getting their heads glued in front of color TVs airing propaganda 24/7 (in spite of many at the time probably screaming otherwise). People leave their family nest later because it's financially unsustainable to do it earlier, it has zero to do with sociality.
