Google says 22.

Usually millenials are born between 80 and 00, but it's true that people born in 99 are a lot closer to Gen Z than to the rest of Gen Y (officially born as Gen Y, but grew up in the same conditions as Gen Z).

Key part is surely 'millenium'. If they don't remember the millenium, they don't count. By then the internet was fully working, iPods existed etc.



Hmm, pie.

The worst part about them is that they're younger than I am, so I'm gonna die before they do, and that upsets me. Damn millenials.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Most of Gen Z are kids still so I don't see how you can even take what they say seriously.

The reason why people think Millenials are bad, is because we all grew up with the internet. We also had to grow up with the horrible repercussions of smaller government. Health care is insanely expensive because the government refuses to step in and control prices. Student loan debt is out of control, because regulators refused to shut down for-profit schools. As a result, the generations that came before us see us as lazy, and broke.

But all the stuff that makes us Millenials seem bad, (or actually be bad), is effecting Gen Z just the same. So they should have no reason to look down on any of us.

We didn't all grow up with internet though, it's the thing that opposes us to Gen Z. Millennial start in 1980, we're the last generation who "played outside" when we were kids, while Gen Z plays on computers and their parents iPad when they're 3 years old.

Millenials learned life without internet, and then grew up at the same time as internet, which makes us IMO more logical about it than other generations (we know how to use it, but we also know that life was possible without it). Gen Z kids are the one who would kill themselves if they had to live without internet for more than a day.

You're right about everything else though. The previous generations destroyed the economy (and the environment  society, etc...) and think that Gen Y is bad because we can't succeed as easily as them. Gen Y has to repair a lot of damage done by baby boomers and Gen X.

But I disagree about OP though. Everyone trashes Gen Z, more than Gen Y. Gen Z kids are the Tide pod challenge and Fortnite dances generation, usually considered the dumbest generation ever, intellectually impaired due to too much exposure to internet and social networks at a young age. My little sister, who was born in 1996 and is a "late millennial", grew up with millennials but then saw a lot of Gen Z kids when she was in high school (being a elementary/middle/high school together). She always told our family that she was impressed by how dumb and disconnected from reality the kids from Gen Z were. So really, don't mind too much what Gen Z kids say about millennials. I bet they don't even know what that means anyway. 

^^ this sums up how I feel quite nicely. Good post. 



Millennial is just another meaningless label, as if when one is born defines who they are.



Around the Network

A lot of people who hate millennials are in fact, millennials themselves. They just do not know what the actual age range is nor that they fall into that category. That should be enough to indicate a general problem.

At 31, I myself am a millennial. If people want to call me lazy, fine. I probably make more money than them anyway so whatever. I worked hard to get from literal rock bottom to where I am today. The real problem are the labels and generalizations themselves due to the lack of people willing to own up to their individual responsibilities.

Your comment makes no sense, as government in the US (You seen to be speaking from a US perspective) is much, much larger than it has ever been, and has been growing tremendously throughout your entire lifetime, along with the problems that you mentioned.

That is completely false. We put a man on the moon in the 60's. Now NASA is a shadow of its former self. U.S. funded computer research programs gave birth to the internet, as well as many other inventions. Now it is almost impossible to get government research funding. Republicans have dialed back regulations for decades, and whenever they can't dial back regulations they massively cut the funding for said regulators. I'll post links and examples later today when I get the freetime. 



The sentence below is false.

Go back to listening to your good music, Xer.

I’m no fan of labels, but different sources have differing ranges of the dates. Like this one: https://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2014/03/here-is-when-each-generation-begins-and-ends-according-to-facts/359589/



                                                                                                                                            

Glad I'm a Xennial instead.
