Usually, baby boomers are the ones who get the biggest share of roasting in the ongoing generational debate. Millennials and Gen Zs have dedicated an entire wave of memes, jokes, and puns, all composed in an internet language that sounds very foreign to boomer ears.

But this time it’s the millennials' turn to get a taste of their own medicine. You see, the Gen Z'ers of TikTok have joined forces in canceling the very millennial staple—skinny jeans. Some TikTokers have gone as far as saying they’d rather lose their homes than wear this revolting piece of clothing which makes your legs look like sausages and disturbs normal blood circulation.

Turns out, skinny jeans are just the tip of the iceberg. Let’s see what other millennial daily bread and butter is now canceled, and even though it’s cruel, it’s also kind of time to move on. After all, how many more selfies from above are we gonna take?

I am a millennial, I second that. But I never got the hype anyway.

Defining the two generations of millennials and Gen Zs starts from establishing the years to which each of them belongs. A millennial is considered anyone born between 1980 and 1995. Meanwhile, a member of Gen Z is anyone born between 1996 and the early-mid 2000s (end date can vary).

But the real differences between these two generations are most apparent in their lifestyle choices, values, and preferences. This is partly because Gen Zers and millennials come from two completely different backgrounds.

While millennials came of age during the Great Recession, this new generation was in line to inherit a strong economy with record-low unemployment. However, the coronavirus pandemic has changed the circumstances of how Gen Z is approaching adulthood. Now they, just like millennials, face an uncertain future for the first time in their lives.

According to the new 2020 Pew Research Center survey, half of the oldest Gen Zers (ages 18 to 23) reported that they or someone in their household had lost a job or taken a cut in pay because of the outbreak. This was significantly higher than the shares of millennials (40%), Gen Xers (36%), and baby boomers (25%) who said the same.

Young workers like Gen Zers were particularly vulnerable to job loss as they were based in high-risk service sector industries that were among those who were hit the most during lockdowns.

I saw a post about this on Facebook a little while ago, and I really do wonder do actual people give a damn? I mean it's one thing to joke and have fun with it, but are there really people so obsessed with what the younger generation thinks of them that they will alter their sense of style to appeal to them?

The differences are still present when it comes to the general view of work and education. A recent Way To Work survey that surveyed more than 1000 college students and recent graduates in the US found that Gen Zs are more concerned about the cost of education (21% of respondents) compared to millennials (13% of respondents).

The same survey also found that millennials tend to value stability (34%), while Gen Z is more concentrated towards finding their dream job (32%). But when it comes to parents' influence on making the big decisions, 42% of Gen Zers said they follow their parents’ influence, while only 36% of their millennial counterparts said the same.

I don't think hating any group is reasonable. You have a right to don't like people, but the generalization is just dumb, mean and useless.

Just saying things two people posted are a personality trait and hating everyone 10 years older than you.

Well the pace of technological advancements in our lifetime is batshit crazy. I have a few friends my age ( ~25) that can't properly operate a smartphone, or use various software. Some of the minillenials really don't have a clue about a lot of social media platforms, I for one am guilty in this partially, have no clue about snapchat, although I quite enjoy some of the content on tiktok and use instagram regularly, and like a proper ""old"" person I still use fb too. The other group is just trying to signal some sort of maturity, with consciously distancing themselves from the things that the younger ppl use. Like some sort of early "back in my day" syndrome. Although generally this part of people, who are somewhere inbetween the millenials and genZ (the so called lost generation, or gen F (look that one up)) are really diverse in this manner, some are really milleniall-y some belong to the more z-esque groups.

So does that mean that Gen Zedders actually like paying bills, mortgage/rent and doing chores?
