Never been called a snowflake or saw someone call another a cringe zoomer outside of toxic online communities.

Get out more, the real world is different

The concept of generations is just a social construct. These kinds of things are mostly just selection bias. If what's seen as someone from an older generation criticizes something done by a younger generation, then "generational trauma" confirmed. If an older person agrees with a younger person, it's ignored. If someone of the same age group criticizes, it's also ignored.

It's especially ridiculous when considering opinions on something as subjective and inconsequential as a meme.

Baby Boomers as a generational cohort are well on their way to completely dying off and generational antagonism is a tool of the capitalist class to turn the workers of different ages against one another. Be better than that. Make better memes.

Generational antagonism predates capitalism by about 2 thousand years (of our recorded history)

Gen X: “Forgotten again. Whatever.”

[-] [email protected] 0 points 3 months ago* (last edited 3 months ago)

Yes, but ...

Setting aside the polarized nature of named generations, as a class; for these are entirely arbitrary and designed to create polarization ...

There's fun theory on the "Gen X are forgotten" meme. Yes yes, you Gen Xers got shafted, here's a cookie 🍪 Please hear me out.

Most people fall on the cusps of their "generation" and Gen X is no different - in this case, you're either old enough to identify with boomers, and are shouting "snowflake millennial" with them; or you're young enough to identify with millennials, but still too old to identify with Gen Z, so you're shouting "cringe zoomer" with the millennials, they who are cuspers themselves and too old to identify with Gen Z. The quintessential Gen Xer is uncommon, but exceptionally kind. You always know when one is around though, because they are quick with a self deprecation point out that Gen X was "forgotten again." 😉

The sad thing is that many of the so-called boomers are being replaced by Gen Xers. And the millennials shouting the same inter-generational slurs will eventually take the throne of generational bully.

On the other hand, there is hope inspired by this meme - all we need to do to stop inter-generational trauma is stop perpetrating it.

The only millennials I give a shit about are the ones who made my life painful as they entered the working world and even then, away from the office as long as they are not trying to police speech we are chill.

Whoever made this comic has never actually seen millennials and zoomers interact. We all cool.

We are the only generation to acknowledge just how fucked the next generation is regardless of whether they "get a job" or not. We've also experienced enough bald-faced ignorance from previous generations that we have the humility to acknowledge that there might be things as we grow that we just won't understand, and we can tolerate it either way. Or at least that's been my experience among my age group. In fact I've never been more supportive and proud of the younger millennials and zoomers. Our racist octogenary and parent is handcuffed to the wheel and dead set on speeding the car up as fast as possible toward a firework factory and we all in the car calm and holding each other like, "well, we're fucked but they're dying soon and we might have time to hit the brakes".

As a millennial I can say that Gen Z is bussin fr fr no cap

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

As a genx I can say like, whatever man.

As a millennial, the only humans I hate are the rich. The rest of you are cool, even if some of you are dumb as rocks.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

That's a good way to be. I try to do this, but it's hard not to hold people's stupidity against them when they plaster it all over the back of their car.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 2 months ago

Yes. I totally agree, I just try to remember that they're constantly being bombarded with propaganda and that it takes a lot of mental gymnastics to keep supporting their daddy's favorite ~~football team~~ political party.

[-] [email protected] 0 points 3 months ago

Yeah but a lot of non rich people supported policies and individuals who were just fine with a system that allowed for the Uber rich goofs to exist.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

I think these go into OP's "dumb as rocks" category.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 months ago

The circle has already been broken, as ~zoomer, the vast majority of millennials I interacted with were really nice people.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

I think boomers to millennials would make more sense. Boomers are so hateful and desperate to keep what was promised to them that they will hold on to it even if it costs 3 generations of people almost everything.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

I'm a really young zoomer and most millenials I interacted with were also really nice.

But there were also a few jerks

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

I’m a millennial and I love you guys, my aim is to be kinder and more helpful to y'all than our predecessors were to us

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

Gen Xers have always been pretty cool, as long as you don't expect them to care about much. I get the feeling that the close proximity to the Boomers really took it out of them.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 months ago

As a millennial, the vast majority of zoomers I've interacted with have been cool.

[-] [email protected] 2 points 3 months ago

Yeah that’s been my experience as well and I work for a bar. Most of my coworkers in that generation have been easier to get along with, easier to communicate with and don’t visibly panic at a “dead inside” joke. Direct contrast to my last workplace with more millennials/boomers. Ive yet to cop inter-generational shit talking from zoomers so they sure won’t get it from me. Plus look what they did with memes.

[-] [email protected] 1 points 3 months ago

I'm a millennial and I don't understand why anyone from my generation would have a problem with zoomers. Y'all are good people.
