It is a VERY VERY VERY small minority of people who eat tide pods and snort condoms. Don’t generalize if you don’t want to be generalized.
@ios11, ......... s’a joke breh
@ios11, and it’s a very small minority that eat avocado toast, what’s your point?
@ios11, you forgot the confusion of which bathroom to use.
@ios11, it’s still WWWWAAAYYYYYYYYY more than it should be.
@Mit, TG people aren't confused, they're afraid of getting the sh*t beat out of them or worse for using the correct one.
@Hoban Washburne, to be fair I dont want to be labeled with the idiot's who eat tide pods and all the other dumb stuff
@Fruit Punch Samurai, well yeah, me neither. but i dont know if a meme is really the right idealogical platform
@Hoban Washburne, MEMES ARE ALWAYS RIGHT
I'm 21 but I identify as a melennial
@Dave the barbarian, I'm 19, still technically a millennial. We have a clear definition of when "millennial" ends. And it includes people up to 2000
@Taliu the Fox, I thought it ended at 1999
@18bluecat, yes, depends on how you mean that. I meant that once it hit 2000 there were no millennials. Meaning 1999 was the last year
@Taliu the Fox, I read that the millennial generation extends to the early 2000s. Now I’m confused.
@Pierce Hawthorne, oh God yes. Upon further research...
The end of the millennial generation can be anywhere from the early 1990s to the mid 2000s.
@Dave the barbarian, Its a state of mind, and who your parents were.
As a millennial, I would be glad to accept you into our miserable ranks.
@Dave the barbarian, what’s that?
@Dave the barbarian, I'm 26 and I do not
@Lellow0079, you can not identify as a millennial all you want, you're still a millennial. You don't get to choose your generation.
@Dave the barbarian, same I think her numbers are off
@Lellow0079, Same I'm 25, and I thought the only way I had to define my age group was as a 90's kid (as defined by being a child in the 90's not a baby).
@Taliu the Fox, I thought baby boomers were 1945-1965, gen x 1965-1985, millenials 1985-2005, gen z 2005-2025?
@18bluecat, The year range is very fluid, one month I was a millennial, the next, I was gen Z. I think all 1995-1999 should secede from the generational labels since our placement depends on the one framing the years and the given time when we are swapped from one to the next. That way I'll actually know where I am in generation stereotypes
@Taliu the Fox, actually millenial refers to those who weren't babies/ toddlers by 2000 the generation ended like 1995 or 96
@Fruit Punch Samurai, not after all the research I did... Some even put the limit at 2005.
@Taliu the Fox, I looked and it seemed like at that point in time gen z wasn't really a thing yet but the more recent times put it to 1996 at the latest
@Dave the barbarian, So you think you can just self-identify as one of us now? Pffft, next you’ll be claiming there are more than 2 generations! 😋
@Dave the barbarian, they actually recently just redid the generations. Gen Z doesn't even exist anymore they took away its name. They're waiting to give it a name that signifies their accomplishment or unique feature.
@CellSword, this is correct
@Dave the barbarian, I'm 29, but I identify as 18.
@Dave the barbarian, Yeah I'm 17 but I definitely identify as a millenial, although barely
What if I work my butt off for paying off student loans, grew up in a generation where every excuse in the classroom for struggling is ADHD, but also cannot remember a time without technology (had a Gameboy and a Windows 97 dino computer)? I'm 21, I'm pretty sure everyone in their twenties can't remember a time without technology. I don't really care if I'm classified as a millennial or a gen z, I guess I don't understand why there is a focus on classification rather than trying to promote good work ethic and being good examples to those younger AND older than us. All generations have hardships
@Zipps, If growing up with technology classifies you as a Millennial, then every person born after the invention of the car is a Millennial. Or the hot air balloon, or wheels, or fire. At one point all of these where considered technology, this is the problem, strict definitions using loose criteria.
Edit: After re-reading this, I would like to point out that I don't mean @Zipps specifically, just a general we need better criteria in order to define where people fall.
@The Squeegee Bandit, Technically, any generation born after tools were invented would be a millennial since technology isn't actually just electronics, but anything that is created to accomplish objectives. The basic axe is technology because it is used to cut down trees.
The actual definition is also vague and many tech historians argue about what qualifies as technology, but all, save for a few, say that basic tools are technology.
Anyone else notice when you go to pay your student loans, the website has people smiling all over the place. It should be a picture of some person looking gleefully at their paycheck they got from their first job after the got their degree but it the background, there is a collection officer with a bat walking towards said person
You dont think we had active shooter drills? Dummy.
I guess Millennials also bitch about problems on social media for the world to see on an imaginary pedestal too...
I'm 18, but I grew up on vinyls and cassettes, watching the Andy Griffith show and I love Lucy. In my spare time I hunt, fish, read books, and go hiking. I can't stand when people generalize me as a condom snortin tide pod eatin biatch. Some of us grew up in different times, at the same time.
Pretty sure the youngest millenials right now are 18-19
I got a question for the Americans on this app I'm really interested (Brit)When youre about 16-18 what sort of parties or motives do you have. Coz the drinking age is 21. what music you bang as well
@Ethan Bradberry, I actually got to study abroad for college last semester so my age range you’re asking for is a little off but we pretty much listen to the same music you do. The pubs I went to seemed to have the same basic jams. You guys roll with what’s popular just like we do. There’s a few songs here and there that are different but not much. As for parties, I didn’t really go to nor have many parties when I was in high school and I went to a public school of 4000 kids. I have heard that smaller schools in smaller towns do have parties but it’s almost comparable to footloose if you will. Small town where everyone knows everyone and it’s safer to have more fun. I’m sure there are also exceptions to what I’m saying but I loved visiting England and the rest of the countries. They seemed to love the students just as much which I think made it more fun
@averagesizedtoaster, oh fair enough mate. It depends over hear really on who goes. Some house parties bang the expected tunes but most i go to bang drum and bass that's pretty much across London from about 16
@Ethan Bradberry, when I was 16 - 18, I was just playing league of legends, sooooooooo
@Ethan Bradberry, it really just depends on the party setting for me. I try to play music that fits the crowd. Also got to see marshmello play at the O2 in London i believe. It was amazing
@Ethan Bradberry, I’m 17 and live in a small town in the US. Usually the “parties” I host are like 20-25 people, and I mostly bartend to make special drinks/cocktails. Basic ones are margaritas, mojitos, White Russians, Moscow mules, Bahama Mama- sweet cocktails because everyone prefers them if they don’t have to make them. Classic games like beer pong are a thing, and then usually just shots or stronger mixes when people want to get drunk. Music is usually like the top hits of the day + some 2000s classics by Usher, Kanye, you name it. Anything with a beat really. You can search some good party playlists on Spotify and then just buy/download the songs from there. As far as drinking age is concerned, most parents are fine with letting kids 16+ go to parties and I just wait until parents are gone to host. If not, kids just say “it’s a sleepover.” It’s usually BYOB but people w/fake IDs can get special stuff and other people pay.
@Can yew knot, yeah apart from the music it's pretty much the same. Only here we never drank anything sophisticated or cocktails we got our £5 bottle of glenns and ket. Cheers though I was always interested in how it goes down in the states
@Ethan Bradberry, from 16-21 was beer pong and other drinking games. Lots of house party's. Everyone drinks before 21, in my case and many others, we actually slow down at 21, it's not illegal anymore so its not as fun.
@Ethan Bradberry, I was one of those kids who could hang with pretty much any of the major cliques in high school and interact fairly well with them. All the parties I went to during that time were either like pool parties or just hangouts, watch a movie with friends and just play games.
I’m currently 21 from SoCal if that helps
@Ethan Bradberry, well, I never went to parties. But from what I get it's mostly just to have fun. People find it entertaining. No booze needed.
@Ethan Bradberry, the parties I’ve went to were usually at someone’s house or at the beach. My first party was when I was 16, we got someone to buy us alcohol. We played beer pong, we hung out. We played whatever’s popular either new or old. Our motives was really to have fun. Well my motive. They’re are some people who come to meet people, some people bring drugs to do it, and of course, ones that come to start trouble. Hope this helps.
@Ethan Bradberry, When I was 16-18 everyone smoked weed and tried to get laid. We'd find a 21+ person willing to buy us booze. But I was also from the country in the south so we'd smoke, drink, get laid outside. The cool kids would have House parties again just to smoke, drink and get laid. We'd drive in to town and rob the mall. Or go make skate videos. But again mostly it was smoking, drinking and getting laid.
@Ethan Bradberry, lambrini and WKD 🤙🤙
Avocado toast tastes like boogers and I don’t understand how anyone eats it.
Millennials: the word millennial is now just a slang word for lazy young person who's politics and priorities I disagree with. I propose that moving forward we use the moniker "Gen Y" to reference our generation.
Can't figure out why Generation Y later became called Millennials except some sociologist needed to justify funding.
@ManPlayingGalaga, yea I️ grew up hearing gen y. Gen x is analog, gen y digital, and gen z is like smartphones or something like that. Meaning the technology you likely first experienced.
Yeah. I don’t take advice/info from social media, thanks though.
"Oh no! There's no jobs for me, because some other generation ruined the economy!"
First of all, you have a Bachelor's degree in Obscure Medieval French Poetry, because you were bound and determined to spend the majority of your college life partying, so it's one of those "You reap what you sow" moments.
Second, there ARE jobs available, if you're willing to lower your lofty standards. There's no shame in working foodservice. It's a steady paycheck.
Third, you want to bellyache about how people generalize you? STOP 👏 LIVING 👏 UP👏 TO👏 THEIR 👏 LOW👏 EXPECTATIONS! 👏👏👏
@Suicide Squad Sucks, Well the field of electrical engineering had very little room for college graduates because it was a new field 60 years ago and became saturated with baby boomers. Now that they're all retiring, theres a large vacuum in that field. So yes, you're right on the money, but it does require a little more foresight with college major selection than one would think.
Come on. Don't play the Baby Boomer's blame game. We millennials got shìt on for a long time simply for existing. Now that there is a new generation, we can't just do the same (even if it is a joke).
I'm 23 and I had "intruder" drills at school 2 times a year since elementary school. And I don't see the problem with it, I think it's better to know what to do in the one in a billion chance it ever happens. I mean, should we not have fire drills cuz fire is bad and scary? And, personally, I always felt safer because of them
Who decided that a generation is a 15 year block of time, anyway?
I’m 34. I have almost nothing in common with 19 year olds or 49 year olds.
Knock that shjt down to 10 years...
So sick of people forgetting Gen Y is a thing and just lumping it in to the millennials, I'm Gen Y, born in 86, millennials weren't born till late 90s, like maybe 98 at the earliest. There is a huge generational gap and difference there.
Im Gen Z and i dont any of those things and i grew up while technology was minimal
I was born in 2000. I'm the millennial not the people who are 23
@Patishlebish, millennial also means people who “came of age” around 2000. It’s a pretty big range. I️ kinda thought gen y and z were all millennials, but I️ didn’t think there was a definition so
I'm embarrassed to be labeled a millennial. I am proud not to be a hipster though.
They don’t trust the government but the majority of them support communism.
I’m 34. Not a millennial. I am generation y - as in WHYyyyyy....
The economy is actually pretty decent right now. I work as an engineer for a fabrication shop. We have tons of work right now. While yes, maybe only my industry is going good, sometimes it really boils down to what kind of career path you decided to head down.
As a millennial, I declare this fake news
How about we quit labeling people all together?
My age say I am a millenial, my friend and family say I am a old man in a young mans body. Me? well I dont care. I am me. and my age does not define me. the stupid shjt I do define me.
Tl:dr “no u”
Usa just love labeling people.
I'm 20, but none of the gen Z things there describe me.
I'm not the only one thinking 37 is a little high for millennial at the moment right?
That’s not true though, there’s a bridge of the early 80’s to very early 90’s that’s called Generation X. We were kids without technology and adults with it. We don’t fall into the generational stereotypes before or after us.
@AnimusJ, Gen x were born in the 70s
