The worst generation in history, but what do you expect from a generation raised by the boomers?

Not as good as the Boomers (the best generation), but not irredeemably terrible.

I can't honestly answer this question because pat "generational" understandings of sociocultural trends are stupid.

These generational divides are silly and largely worthless.  For example, as a 21-year old born in 1996, that makes me either a late millennial or early Gen-Z.  If I am a late millennial, does that really mean I have more in common with a 37-year old born in 1980 than a 18 year-old born in 1999?  Or, if you would call that early Gen-Z, do I really have more in common with a toddler (are newborns today still considered Gen-Z, or is there something new) than a 23 year-old born in 1994?

Generations are arbitrary... but so are ethnicities, so are gender roles, etc.

this is true, obviously, but it's pretty lazy cop out to avoid discussing something that at least exists in popular consciousness. coincidentally "shutting down potentially meaningful discussion over something petty" will be high on my upcoming listicle 20 Reasons Millenials Are Still Just the Worst (#4 Will Make Your Man Bun Flaccid)

I fail to see what "meaningful discussions" will arise out of "muh millennials!".

While I think it can be helpful to think about generational divides (e.g. the difference between 30-year-olds now and 30-year-olds in 1990) these arbitrary divisions are not helpful, especially groups as broad as the millennials. I voted FF, but it's a pretty meaningless question.

To respond to swallow a knife's post, while the word "millennial" exists in popular consciousness, I don't think anyone makes generalizations about everyone between the ages of ~16 and ~37 in real life.

My brother and I are 11 years 2 months apart (1984-1996) and we get lumped in together as the same generation all of the time. Weirdly enough we actually do have a lot in common even though we rarely speak to each other or spoke to one another growing up.
