We have this in-between, weird-ass generation
Yeah, I think you are quite right now that I give it some thought. My youngest and a couple of her peers went on a slut-shaming tirade of this 19 year old sister of a friend. It was a jaw dropping moment for all the parents that witnessed it and we were all frozen, so no one said anything about it. That's just one example, but it's becoming very clear that they (the 19 year old v. the tweens) live in very differnent worlds.
Another weird one is when they were (are?) threatening us with the power outages (yeah, CA fag here), the younger kids were excited about it. My daughter actually set up a tent in the back yard all on her own. (Lady, we have a backup generator and a roof.) She was plotting with her friends about campfires and how they would use these silly miner hats with the lights on them they all got at a toy store a couple years ago.

@TheRedPike I think we're still in Gen-Y.5 or something. We have this in-between, weird-ass generation of especially lost boys who live on the internet, don't have or want sex, are in a constant state of argument and rebellion against any and all rules and constraints that came before but only on the internet and not in the real world, and think that they have everything all figured out while every single generation that came before is just stupid old farts who are missing what's clearly obvious.
Today's youth hasn't fully rebelled against the millennial culture yet. They just bitch about it on the internet while continuing to go to college, get jobs, and do the same thing. The girls in their generation still have casual sex. The hot guys still have casual sex. Everyone still gets salaried jobs and pays their taxes. Nobody's actually against the old way of doing things. They just complain more on the internet.Read More
