    The millennial joke that can most quickly bring me to the edge of committing a violent crime is when a grown-assed person refers to their day-to-day tasks in life as _"adulting"_

      The term got so over used. The idea that no one really feels like an adult, rather, someone being asked to cosplay an adult life style, is pretty relevant. And that is what adulting meant originally.

      @Jay The Human I’m not outta touch tho? I’m just saying gen z isn’t that different, it’s just a continuation of what already happened. It’s not like someone born in 2000 is completely different than someone born in 1993. It’s easy to dunk on millennials if the only people you’re looking at are complete normies tho. Nothing exists in a vacuum, youngster.

      but also, an explanation for this fight AND flight mentality in us is that our social anxiety combined with just being courteous is why we have a rough time asking workers who are just trying to do their jobs for something. its a fear of inconvenience. on the other hand we dont give two shits about inconveniencing rich old white men, sexual pr3dators, racists, homophobes, etc.

      @CNgotham It definitely depends on if you had older siblings or not. I have a lot of nostalgia for MAD magazines from my friends older brother, and I'm the reason my younger siblings know 2000s pop classics.
      'Dude' was definitely something that carried over to both, though!

    Remember: Gen Z vs Millennials mostly exists primarily to sell us stuff. I fell victim to this myself when I had a little panic about my ripped skinny jeans being "cheugy" and I found myself purchasing a pair of baggy jeans with the knees cut out.

    As a Millennial, I associate some of that emblematic "cheugy" stuff with older generations. Like, my mom is part of Gen X and some of her interior decorations get dangerously close to "Live, Laugh, Love" signs. Minion memes are also something I've always associated with people who were at least over 40 who use Facebook, not Millennials.

      @Seal I think the counter to that is that Gen Z has grown up pretty much exclusively in a time when social media was a dominant force. I've seen a lot of videos breaking down some of the impacts of that reality (which are many) and one common thread is that Gen Z has aged/matured faster than previous generations. It's sort of the argument that "kids weren't able to just be kids" as long as in prior generations. It's the source of the meme about "me when I was 13 vs. 13 year olds now" as an example. I think in general that kids today start wearing make-up younger, start dating younger, etc.
      There are positives and negatives to maturing younger and I think you can certainly argue against the conclusion, but it's interesting to consider the idea that people in the middle of the millennial generation and the middle of Gen Z are potentially closer in maturity than their ages would suggest. Creepy people abuse that notion as well, but I think it explains some of the weirdly strong reaction to perceived "bullying" by people much younger.
      All of this from the perspective of a 1994 baby, like Kurtis.
      Ninja Edit: I didn't consider this as I was writing my comment, but it might also stem from the fact that many inter-generational interactions happen through faceless media (comment sections like this one, etc) so it's harder to look at the person you're arguing with and say, "What am I doing? This is a literal child."

    As a GenZ this is kinda how I interpret things:
    Gen X: The parent who is stuck in old times, but more quiet about it compared to Boomers
    Millennials: The Eldest sibling, coffee obsessed, fun to make fun of but if anyone attacks them we defend them
    Gen Z: Confusing Middle child. What goes on in our heads, no one knows.
    Gen Alpha: Youngest sibling, probably eats crayons, idk

      Pretty sure this is just human nature rather than being a millennial thing, it just happens to be documented online. A lot of people can't handle the idea that everything they loved and were familiar with is now just history or considered ''retro'' and so you get stuck in this ''hole'' where you're holding onto who you once were but you're in the body of someone in their 30s and older. Really it's like a fear of getting older mixed with the inability to accept that who you were and what you were into is no longer mainstream or popular and is considered outdated. I think some millennials just can't deal with that which is why they get self-conscious or defensive because their identities are being challenged by the younger generations, it's not easy to accept that you're just not relevant anymore within the realm of youth culture when once upon a time the limelight was on you and your peers and you were defining the youth culture without even realising it.
      I know it'll happen with gen z too in like 10 years when everything they love and enjoy now is considered outdated by the next gen and I'm calling it now, you'll probably get the same stupid feuds between aging gen zers and the young alphas.
      Really it's just a universal fear of feeling old and no longer being relevant.

    The Rae Dunn culture isn’t an exaggeration at all, my sister was an elementary school teacher for a while and every teacher there would hustle the stuff to their friends and go on buying excursions to every home goods store in the area, then they would have like a StockX style Facebook group to collect and trade to create these sets. I once went to a graduation party at a Rae Dunn moms house and she had a massive glass case of completely unused pieces just for display, probably worth $100s

    It always gets me a bit that people forget that like, we liked high waisted skinny jeans because before that all we had was low waist boot cut or flare and mom jeans got me ridiculed to hell and back (hand-me-downs). We liked mustaches because we grew up in a time when having a mustache was like something to be mocked and made you look like a 70s porn star. So many people attached to the hipster/fall girl/academic retro look because before it was glitter and shiny and bright pink and metal "jersey shore" paris hilton style and it felt more authentic. Ironic/funny tees were because everyone wore tees in the 2000s but then meme/internet humor blew up. Idk if their even still around but there were a few websites you would submit tshirt designs into to see what stuck. Galaxy/triangle was just emo culture changing because rock was changing more into dubstep/house techno time. The hipster was rock changing into the boom clap indie stuff. So much of it had to do with the big changes in the music scene.
    Tumblr and pintrest itself is why so many trends happen in millennial women. The eruption of nerd culture alone (vlogbrothers and the like) caused a lot of cringy things to come about and the wide-spread acceptance of some other really awesome things. Social media in general was so insanely different in the way it was even approached by people for so long. They were just cool websites where you could do neat things. Harry potter was huge because at the time books like that didn't really exist, and it was easy to like as a kid. Teachers appreciated kids reading and your parents probably didn't like you reading about witchcraft. It was subversive.
    Things were louder and more chaotic fashion-wise and think how the next fashion generation responded- generally simple colors, monotone, seamless silhouettes, large "classy" graphics or something very subtle. Athleisure was a response to the skinny jeans people cling to before wide leg or mom jeans. It was middle part in the 70s, side part in the 80s, middle part in the 90s, side part in the 2000s, and now we're back to middle parts. Generally, trends are responses to the trends people couldn't stand from before. There's was a reason people got hooked on what they got hooked on.
    Even now, gen z talks about how they hate things because it reminds them of their mothers. What they do is subversive to what they know. What we did was subversive to what we knew. What the next generation will do will be subversive to what they will grow up in.
    And thus on and on until the world burns or whatever.
    Anyway, I know you posted this video months ago but like every time someone makes a video like this they're like "what were we thinking????" WE WERE THINKING HOW WEIRD 5 YEARS AGO WAS. Eventually someone with influence is gonna be like why did we ever wear these darker/natural shades of lipsticks and then bright blinding ass bubblegum baby pink matte is gonna come back as the main fashion for lipsticks and that's just the way it's gonna be.

When TWO of them told me they were getting the golden snitch and the deahtly hallows logo I almost rolled my eyes. It's their bodies and they can do whatever they want, but jesus christ can we not find something else to read? At least the Twilight fandom had the decency to MOVE ON

      @Yanick lmao here's a small perspective into gen z kids in a third world asian country: we late asf to trends all the time, so we relate more to "millenials" over actual "american gen z" trends. I can assure you, the "unicorn/mermaid" trend literally just took off two years ago, most of my colleagues laugh at those cringey "anime memes" unironically, I've seen tons of young adults/college students forgetting the memo that galaxy print and mustaches are out of trend, and most of the gen z kids feel "hip" but don't even know what "sus" means. Not to say that there isn't anything wrong with it, but it's f*cking funny to me how everything that's "cringe" to the average American teenager is also the same thing that's stILL oddly relevant where I live (ofc mixing a few actual "gen z" styles, most trends here are late asf)
      My guess is that it's because we base our trends off other countries, but since most of us either can't afford them (what's "cheap" in the US, especially fast fashion, is expensive here), or don't have access to good internet connection, we just get updated a lot slower.

I'm on the cusp of millenial and gen z and I would say I am a frequent enjoyed of gen z humour. But I'm also a grown ass woman. My younger brother is 15 and he shows me memes constantly and asks "have you seen the newest trending meme?"

      @Viva el Rock & Eddy! Also it just seems like you’re embarrassed of being considered gen z which is weird 💀 There are cringy & embarrassing people in every generation. millenials can be annoying & insufferable as well but it all boils down to what you feel more identified with in a general sense. People born in 1996 are considered the first gen z so obviously we’ll have commonalities with both previous & current generations but I grew up around millennials & another older gen z (b. 1998) & can’t relate much to millennials, however, that doesn’t mean you’ll feel the same. It’s whatever at the end of the day. Whether you’re millennial or gen z, we’ll all be considered old, dated, cringy, etc. some day. Who cares?!

    • Ashley
      Ashley 16 dni temu

      @Viva el Rock & Eddy! ??? It’s not about wether we’re close to being 30 or not, it’s about a group of individuals born and living contemporaneously. That means we mostly experience the same world events & identify with certain trends, experience pop culture & society a certain way at around a certain age or life stage. I’ve seen Gen Z be considered from 1995, 1996 or even 1997 so it’s not entirely clear or definitive however based on relatability, common lived experiences, pop culture & collective memories, people born from the mid 90’s & onwards could be considered a different generation entirely. Also, even if not everybody will agree, astrologically speaking, generational planets are an easy way to distinguish or categorize generation. In this case anyone with their Pluto being in the sign of Sagittarius is considered Gen Z & that accounts for most people born in 1995 to 2009 roughly which makes sense.

You have to realize that anyone born 1994-1999 are closer to being 30 years of age than 20. We are not kiddies anymore my dude. Accept your label because the scientists who give out the generation labels are not going to change their minds. Even the Federal Library of Congress in Washington DC has 1996 as the last year of Millenials whether you like it or not.

    2013-14 feels to me like the cool second season that everyone loves but nobody talks about because the first was so iconic and the third was so bad

    Boomer humor: I hate my wife
    Millennial humor: I hate my life

      gen z humor now is literally identical to millenial humor when we were that age- it’s straight up just “random XD” re-packaged.

    I’m 34, and I don’t have much affection for my generation. I hate looking around at people “on a date” immersed in their phones and don’t know how to interact in person. Going to a social gathering and people who won’t make eye contact, let alone engage in a conversation but then friend you on Facebook. The “ok boomer” dismissive retort when people who have seen and done more extend any criticism or wisdom. We have more at our disposal than any generation but complain more than any generation. “Anxiety” is an all encompassing excuse to be sub par. “So I did a thing” “Adulting” and “Winning the internet” are nails on a chalkboard. Our generation sucks, just own it and let’s improve it.

    Millennials are the butt of all the jokes BECAUSE we were the first generation of children on the internet. Everyone can look up how cringe we were and still are. Older generations, you'd need their yearbooks and personal photo albums and stuff to be able to make fun of them. Younger gens are just too young too have nostalgia cringe, a couple more years and it will begin. But millennials will forever be the most mocked because its the first one. It set the standards.
    edit to add: i'm not saying zoomers don't cringe at themselves, i'm saying wait 10 years and it gets so much more cringe. y'all are quite self aware though.

      I'm 21 with memories of watching PPGZ x RRBZ videos, MMD videos of FNaF, Creepypasta, and Hetalia, and listening to songs from L33tStr33t Boys. I have nostalgic cringe, millennials are just cringy in general sometimes

      I think this is where we merge a bit. I think a lot of nostalgia cringe for millenials was also so for Gen Z because it changed with how Internet culture changed. I'm 20 and consider a lot of Vines, that weird mustache culture, that "Keep Calm" trend, etc. as the things that I thought were funny/for cool kids back then that I cringe at. As Internet culture advanced, we branched off from each other, but that beginning was kind of consolidated.
      (With the exception of the younger of Gen Z, of course.)
