  • 1... I'm confused... Baby boomers had kids, their kids made millennials... If you don't like millennials why TF did you raise them the way you did?
    2... You can't get jobs out of high school and take care of yourself anymore.
    3... They eliminated trades in high school that set the regular kids up for the job force if they weren't qualified for college.
    4... The death of the paid internship ruined us.. We work for damn near free WITH the student loans that outpace earnings.
    5... We DO NOT think we know everything. Most millennials I know bust ass 40+ hrs, a week and go to college to be broke and blamed for our failing economy. those BEFORE US destroyed. I know very few lazy entitled millennials. Most of us are just tired af
    My mother 60 something-year-old mother called this shit out stating it was ridiculous how much heat millennials take for an economy we did not create!!

  • From an igen's point of view, honestly they don't. I think I know pretty much nothing. What millennials do is this. They are a lot more informed than baby boomers and generation x. Mainly due to the fact that Internet and age. They have both. They're young adults as of now and have the power of a certain level of experience and the Internet at their fingertips which previous generations weren't that exposed to. Igens don't have the experience yet, so we're still half baked cookies. However that doesn't mean that we're not informed. We're very informed. Half baked doesn't translate to half baked knowledge. It's just that we know that we have a lot more to learn and we're doing that. Bit by bit. Till then we'll continue to profess our knowledge to its maximum potential and where we know we're right.
    Ps- A word of advice to a lot of people out there (not all). Stop picking on us and telling us we're too young to know something or that we're wrong due to our age. It's a bullshit reason and we would really love an actual retort to our statements. Again not to all people not certainly some.

  • All people at that age feel like they are all knowing and invincible. It's happened with all generations and will continue to happen. Most grow out of it and smarten up, and the few that don't are easily identifiable. The fact you have to blame the internet or mental disabilities on the harsh nature of humanity probably shows you were one of those people that never grew out of the 'I'm better than everyone and everything I don't understand is lesser than me' stage

    • Sorry for the aggressive tone, it's been a loooong day already and I just read it back. But I'm sure you understand what I mean

  • Cause the internet exists! Had it been this available before, all exposed to it would be just the same!

    You can pretty much self teach yourself everything and anything without much more just internet! That’s a big part of it.

  • Because technology is advancing and was far more exposed to nearly everything without having to hardly experience it. Many of us were taught of the world EARLY in life. But its also how our parents choose to raise us. There is no issue in knowing everything. The problem is what you choose to do with it. And sadly I'm ashamed of my generation. Have all this knowledge, still, choose to do 'stupid'. I think that's the real problem.

  • Um because we know plenty more than the older generation. 99% off millennial are more clued up about current/modern technology and a lot are fresh from education, if not still in it - therefore were up to date with whats going on in the world and how things have changed from your time.

  • Probably because they are still or just fresh from education. So have what they think and it probably is, up to date information about the world, e. g politics. Whereas people who are much older only have google/the news to get there info.

    • It's basically, you.

    • Ah fuck, you're not even a millennial. "Top definition
      Millennial
      Millennial is an identity given to a broadly and vaguely defined group of people. There are two wings of "Millennial" that are often at odds with each other: Generation Y (people born between 1981-1991) and Generation Z (born between 1991-2001). People of Generation Y often have characteristics similar to Generation X, which is why Generation Z will confuse Generation Y with Generation X and then claim to be the generation that represents "MIllennial," when in fact, birth years for Millennial range from about 1981-2001, just as the birth-years for Baby Boomers ranged from 1946-1964."

      You're so young and so 'fresh' that a term hasn't been thought up to describe you. I'm the millennial, you're nothing.

  • Millennials don't believe they knows everything and there are many unanswered questions. They knows that. We still don't know if there's an objective meaning with life, if gods exists, if there are any afterlives, how god is, if it exists life on other planets etc. Most millennials thinks they knows more about certain things than the previous generations and that they've knowledge people in the past didn't have.

    Before the internet age people didn't know what the internet was, but nowadays we knows it. For thousand years ago people didn't have the same knowledge as we've about medicine, sexuality, science etc. Things like light bulb, electricity, anesthesia etc. weren't invented yet. People didn't know what germs was, that blood letting didn't work and so on. In the 1600s people believed in witches many places in the world.

    So next time a millennian says people in the past were dumber, they don't mean the new generation knows everything.

  • Because most of us were born with a silver spoon and are handed things in life. They mistake spoilage as self-earned success.
    (Un) fortunately, I wasn't quite so and I learned things the hard way. But at the same time I also understand others have it worse than I do so I try not to complain too much.

  • They are the best educated generation to this date and yes, google is an extension of your knowledge since were now at an age where its not as important to know something as it is important to know where to find the correct information.

    Kind of how its not as important to know the answer to a math problem as it is important to know how to calculate it.

  • Here's my take... the older generation is always bitching about millenials saying that we're lazy, we take everything for granted, we are addicted to our technology etc... fine, point taken. Where I personally think it crosses the line is where the older generation seems to blame us for most of the world's problems...

    However, I will ask of you to consider this if you may...

    Who raised us? - your generation

    Who invented all the technology and smart phones? - your generation

    Who is he generation mostly in charge of running countries and companies? - your generation

    Who is the generation that drove the entire planet into debt that will take 100 plus years to pay off? - your generation (thanks by the way, like we needed a pickle up our ass before we even get to grow up)

    Who decides when a war starts and ends? - your generation (and guess who fights and dies, us - thanks again for that)

    I apologize if I cane out as offensive but I feel like a direct approach is called for. Im not dissing anyone but all I am saying, sure we may lack in certain parts but guess what, your parents were probably very disappointed in your generation too.

    My point is, before you go tell everyone how shitty we are, why dont you look in the mirror and make the change - your generation is the ones in power. If you're Unhappy with us, help make us better and we will gladly appreciate the help rather than just stand there and criticize us.

    Keep in mind, when you guys get old, we'll be the one wipping your ass in the nursing homes so unless you want to sit in a shitty diaper on a daily basis, I would propose that you consider developping a certain degree of respect for the millenials.

    Cheers and I hope this reflexion helps answer your question.

  • Because young people always do. My dad told me that when he was younger that his dad, my grandfather, was super smart. When dad hit his teens he noticed that my grandfather was progressively getting more ignorant. Then when my dad reached 25, my grandfather started getting smart again. I'll be damned if the same thing didn't happen to me.

  • Answer E : every generation thinks they know everything better than the previous generation
    It was thrue 25 years ago when I was young and i think it will be thrue in 2099.

  • Dude. You're a millennial!

    Anyone born between 1981 and 1996 (ages 22 to 37 in 2018) will be considered a Millennial, and anyone born from 1997 onward will be part of a new generation.
    Check it on google.

  • I'm Gen Z

    And that's toxic way of believing those who are young shouldn't have a say in politics and social discussions.

    This rhetoric purely comes from those who are equally politically informed, who believe that millenials that express their beliefs are suddenly uninformed because they came from a generation that is influenced my their family and school.

    Liberalism is a lot more popular among younger people because it's about the concept of those who recognize problems others have long forgotten about, and want to be the generation to be able to fix it, rather than let it pass.
