You know you are a millennial, right? So that includes you lol
@motownplayer2000 I know I am and it's a shame that I'm part of this generation, I don't feel like I belong.That and statistics are not set in stone. Some would have me as a millennial, others as Gen Z. I'm either the youngest of the millenials or the oldest of the zoomers.
It's sad... but I guess that's a trait of being part of the millennial era. Bunch of you all wish you were in another era, instead of fixing and motivating others to improve in this one. I think that's the most disappointing part of being in this era. However, I'm never ashamed of any of it. I will always strive to be better, and keep my fellow era people accountable to that. Hope you realize that's the best thing you can do.
@motownplayer2000 I merely expressed that it would have been cool to be in another era. We can all dream. I never said that I don't try to improve myself in this life.
I wish there were more conservative republicans in this generation, I hate fucking left wing trash
@ThisDudeHere As far as I remember, my childhood friends would not have whined about belonging to this generation, they would have punched the offender. Maybe it is because I grew up surrounded by more good millenials than bad ones. Yes, bad ones exist and they are lame, but all my college friends are hard working people just trying their thing in Communications, Education, Law, Medicine, Engineering, etc. They do not wake up at 10 am, ask for two hours of lunch, etc. Being arrogant or entitled is exclusively a trait of a people's personality and you can find it at any age, at any generation.I mostly laugh at the media or the people who spend too much time trying to analyze this. If my aunt tags me in a millennial video, I just say I'm offended and are going to complain after having my pumpkin spice extra-sugar and chocolate grande macchiato, and we both have a laugh for a while.
@Saville_Row it is truly sad, to hear people complain about there own generation. I'm like you, the way I was raised, you fix the problem in yourself, and encourage others to do the same. Like you, lots of my friends are lawyers, doctors, and engineers. We grew up working hard, not complain that a different era was better then ours or whatever the complaint is. @NatalieKeller95 why? They dont have the answer, just like Democrats dont. They are not for the people, they are just out to fit there own agenda. Instead of wishing to there to be more of your biased politically slanted views. We should be working to make sure these politicians are accountable to the people! The Republican party has preached in the past personal responsibility. But have cooled off from that, because that side has done more blaming of "liberals" than anything else. Democrats are not any better. We should just be making sure that we keep them accountable and work for the people!
That says something about the generation that raised them.
Kids need to be beaten like my parents used to get when they did something wrong not like today where they don’t do shit

Nope by 2000 you are past the millennial generation. At 28 you are pretty much in the middle of the millennial age range.
As @DDpsy said. You're a millennial. The only generation that has an official government age group is the baby boomers and the millennials are the children of those baby boomers. So, the general age range that is accept for millennials is anyone born between 1981-1996. So, anyone that was coming of age of 9/11 at the top to the youngest being anyone old enough to actually remember 9/11. Although, just like any other "generation" the ones at the end tend to feel like they may belong to the other generation. So, early 80's might feel they are more generation X while the mid 90's might feel they are more Generation Z. Whereas, us millennials (generation Y) that are born around the middle are millennials through and through.
Yeah, that's definitely the spirit that will make you successful... You see, this IS the problem.
I can confirm that a lot of millennial women are the worst they expect relationships to be fucking disney
@NatalieKeller95 Tell me all about it. They took from the media those ideals and think it's easy to be like in the scripted and staged movies.
You are not a millennial you are Gen Z. The youngest millennials are 23.
Thank u so much for letting me know 😆 that was very helpful!
Ok guys, sorry I am Gen Z! Not a millennial! Thanks @coralee for pointing this one out!
It may not mean much to you. But, Millenials as a generation are infatuated and it is important to use the correct terminology, Gen Z is a completely different generation with their own strengths and weakness that deserve recognition.
Oh... that is the difference! Thanks @corelaee, for pointing out this one too!!!
yet baby boomers think they're the best generation to ever live, their endless hypocrisy knows no bounds
@NatalieKeller95 Every generation thinks they are the best generation and every generation thinks the next generation will be terrible. We almost certainly will fall into the same cycle and we almost certainly will be proved wrong by the next generation.
we already are, I just hope Gen Z doesn't become fully liberal like the millennials, please this liberal horde needs to stop
@NatalieKeller95 Name me one person who has claimed that and reference something regarding their claim so that I may observe.
@RoninReich I know this isn't a babyboomer, but Aristotle said that, or something very similar.
Aristotle wasn't alive to observe Millenials so your point is invalid... Try again.by the way, my point is proven.
@RoninReich Didn't I say it wasn't about millennials? Either way, he said something about the next generation being the worst generation yet and that every generation thinks the same. I am well aware that Aristotle hasn't been alive for about 2300 years.
I wasn't even talking to you... by the way, their parents are not fully to blame. Personal responsibility and adulthood aren't extinct yet.
@RoninReich personal responsibility and adulthood aren't already extinct, but if the parents spoil the child then the child will be a spoiled adult. In addition, whether you believe more in nature or nurture, the parents make the child in addition to other sources. The parents are heavy influencers on their children and can shape the kid in many different ways.
I obviously understand that... I am saying that at some point, all of the choices made by the adult child are none others than the child's to bear.
@RoninReich That I agree with, I think we kind of agree with each other lol
F. Y. I, my gamertag is... Stiff Goat 👍.
You are insulting yourself hahava
I mean, I didn't say I'm like that or that everyone in my generation is that way. Fact of the matter is that's how a lot of them are. The way I see it they're insulting themselves.
Yeah, you were an awful dad.
Sex drugs and rock and roll
@RoninReich - actually I was one of the good ones. I wasn't the helicopter parent, my kids didn't get 'participation trophies', and they had to work for what they got. For example, the youngest one realized there was no free ride at our house, so he got good grades, got himself into a university, got the classes he needed by sitting in 'till others dropped out, got a masters degree in four years, got recruited by a tech-giant in silly-cone valley, and makes huge $$. He's also already married to a brilliant young woman and they're making their own life. And yes, he did it ALL by himself. For the most part, the millenial generation has been sold a bill of goods - they've been told since day one they DESERVE whatever great things life has to offer, like a good job, a happy romantic life, success. This is all simply a giant lie - you get what you get for the effort and work you put in, just like everybody else. And yes, we grew up on sex drugs and rock and roll. Those that stuck with that either made it big with that and died early on, or matured into successful adults through their own effort. No one is handing out life success - you have to EARN it.
I was just messing with you
Common sense does exist! Lol
One true thing about millennials is that there are a lot of special snowflakes in the group. Some of the special snowflakes will feel a need to shit on their generation just so they feel extra special. It's like a feedback loop of lameness.
@DDpsy well said. I find it highly ironic that entitled, spoiled bratty millennials and/or the older generation whine and complain about millennials that are whiney, spoiled brat millennials. Like where do they honestly think that is coming from if they are doing the exact thing they are complaining about. Its hilarious on one hand and pathetic on the other.
Gen X is Nihilism
@NatalieKeller95 You are right, its more apparent in Gen X.
but Gen X is better than millennials
i agree with you👏👏👏
I'm really surprised how hard younger adults are on their generations. You should see the stuff the people in my generation did. I wasn't involved in it for the most part I just watched the show. Don't let older people snow there was some wild stuff going on and we really didn't have to study like you guys have to because you could get into a decent college with a B average.
You do realize you are millennial right?
@coralee Does that somehow change what comes to his mind?
@coralee I think of millenials as the people in their teens and 20s. I am in no way similar to them.
Millenials were born between 1982-1995. They used to be called Gen Y until that fell out of popular vernacular. Today's teenagers are known as Gen Z.
@coralee Either way as I said, I am in no way similar to them and do not even identify myself as one.
Lol you know that is handed down from the people before them... lol they didn't just become that way. They learned it from you all. Since they are the direct descendant of your era. It's funny how that works.
@motownplayer2000 No that isn't true at all. Not even close. They didn't like the discipline and vowed to be different with their own kids aka coddle them to death. I was never coddled.. I was paddled in school by teachers then again when I got home. We didn't get trophies for losing. We weren't told that you can do whatever you want in life and that you are special. They didn't learn it because that type of behavior we see today never happened.
Well were do they get it then? It sure isn't one they they wake up at 5 years old and say I'm going to go my own way. If the parents and OLDER generation isn't guiding these kids, helping them.. then where else they going to put up these character traits? This is why this logic makes sense. And I dont really understand what you mean by coddled? What is that? And how does that actually affect how people raise there kids?I believe in spankings and discipline, I was spanked as a child too. Wouldn't say that directly impacted my maturity. It's more my parents making sure they spent the time to talk to me and show me how to be a man and productive member of society. Is that what you mean by coddled? I'm trying to figure out what that actually mean..
@motownplayer2000 It's more my parents making sure they spent the time to talk to me and show me how to be a man and productive member of society.That is the way I was raised but most millennials weren't raised that way. They were coddled... told they were special, stuck up for them when the teacher was clearly in the right. Parents stopped living their lives to drive their children around to 5 different sports. My dad said ride your bike. That is what coddled is... Millennials are entitled little babies because the parents thought their own parents did it wrong! This is what happens when parents slap their toddler’s headshot on a birthday cake. Special little princesses.
I am lazy and entitled.😑
Some people get handed down shit and don’t have to work but that’s their parents fault. That is not all of us
@coachTanthony I fail to see how the things you describe is really bad. Back a few years ago, neighborhoods were not as divided and evil as they are now. Your statement: "... Parents stopped living their lives to drive their children around to 5 different sports." I wish my parents were their to watch me play football in high school, and basketball in college. It would have been a truly amazing thing to share that moment from someone that gave me life and everything they possibly could to help me with my success. I fail to see how that is coddling. Next: "... My dad said, ride you bike." Let me ask you a question, in this day and age were there are pedophiles, rapist and murders running rampant in communities. You would let you 15 year old son or daughter, ride their bike to a sporting event at a school, or something. And have them ride there bike home at night (when events usually end, of that magnitude)? I call that stupid more than anything else. I've seen parents in my community still searching for there children because they thought their children would be "safe" enough to do those things at a young age. If this was 20 years ago, I would say go for it. But it's a new world now. I just fail to see how being safe and using common sense with your children is coddling.
The only thing I can give you, is that parents instead of spending time with there kids, will put a tablet or tv screen or something of that nature in front of there children instead of helping them with there homework, teaching them to be responsible and accountable, making sure they understand how the world works, and letting them know you have to work for everything that you want. But parents give there kids everything, and let the tv raise there kids. That's the main thing I see that is a huge problem with this generation, my generation. And I encourage my circle and the people around me to unplug for a while, and go visit other cultures, immerse themselves in something uncomfortable. That the only way there world view will grow and become better.
@motownplayer2000 Thanks for the comments!
@nomazi lol because society has labeled them everything bad
But why be ashamed? Society does that to every group of people
