somedude210: ah goddamn, another Millenial-bashing thread? Really?Before we start can we at least agree that Millenials didn't want the whole "participation ribbon" thing and that was their parents who felt they needed to have their precious snowflake recognized for every stupid, mundane thing they did ever? Can we accept that now because that's how it was/is?
MaudlinMutantMollusk: Let's focus on what we're told we should hate about each other and not on the vast majority of things we have in common/demonize, divide, and conquer//it's what your corporate masters want
ImperialHazman: I submitted this with the same headline.
Weaver95: So basically the kids wised up and figured out that playing straight and working hard just means you get screwed? Sounds smart to me,not stupid.
Carn: Millennials - defined as anyone between 19 and 36 years oldNo.
lindalouwho: And boomers still have to work. They are not the 1%, ya know.
lindalouwho: some are still supporting their 30 year old kids who can't get jobs after college
Dr Dreidel: Carn: Millennials - defined as anyone between 19 and 36 years oldNo.Assuming they mean anyone who will attain those ages this year, that would be anyone born between 1978 and 1995.You know, because kids that grew up watching He-Man, GI Joe, and Sha-Na-Na and bopping to The Bee Gees on 8-track can so totally relate to kids who grew up with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, TRL, and the DC Animated Timmverse, with an iPod full of Napster-provided tunes.I'm 33 next month, and damn if I know anyone my age who would self-define as a "millennial".// on of my high school classmates' sons bar mitzvahs was recently// HE'S closer to millennial age than his mom is
ArtosRC: lindalouwho: And boomers still have to work. They are not the 1%, ya know.Tough. They had their chance. They had their time. Now they're just in the way.
Slaxl: Carn: Millennials - defined as anyone between 19 and 36 years oldNo.What is the Millenial age group?
lousyskater: Carn: Millennials - defined as anyone between 19 and 36 years oldNo.The age range on it keeps getting larger and larger doesn't it./28//definitely don't fit in with my supposed "generational group"
Sergeant Grumbles: Self fulfilling prophecy?"Study" after "study" like this says millenials are entitled, lazy, and worthless.
Superjew: And once again the Gen-Xers are left out entirely.The Sidelined Generation.
Carn: Slaxl: Carn: Millennials - defined as anyone between 19 and 36 years oldNo.What is the Millenial age group?I can't give you the exact cut off, but it sure as hell doesn't include people who are in their 30s in my opinion. If I had to draw a line, I'd say if you grew up as a young kid in the 80s then you're Gen X/Y or whatever, and if you were just a baby and if you grew up in the 90s you're a millenial. I watched the Challenger blow up on live tv in the library at school, I knew what was going on when the Berlin wall came down and the Soviet Union broke up. I guess I have this bad perception of the stereotypes applied to millenials (some based on personal experience with "kids" in that generation) and I sure as shiat don't want to be lumped in with them.
Tyrone Slothrop: They were kids, it didn't matter what they wanted. But now it's what they've come to expect.
SacriliciousBeerSwiller: Well, yeah...if we can also accept that it did f*ck up that generation.
Carn: lousyskater: Carn: Millennials - defined as anyone between 19 and 36 years oldNo.The age range on it keeps getting larger and larger doesn't it./28//definitely don't fit in with my supposed "generational group"Yeah, it seems like a relatively new term and now they're back-dating it to apply to some of us older young folks. My back hurts right now, get off my lawn, article.
