Subject: Does being born in the '90s make you partly Gen Z?

Written By: Donnie Darko on 06/15/06 at 3:03 pm

I was born in 1990, but I've always seen myself as being in the same "camp" as people born in 1987, 1988, and 1989, and slightly older than those born in 1991, 1992, and 1993 (although I can socialize with both).

I don't think people born "with" the '90s (those born in 1990, 1991, and perhaps 1992) have any Gen Z at all in them, but I guess you could make the case that they do because they wouldn't have a complete '90s experience and would be more open to "YZ" early '00s kids stuff like Zoog Disney and Spongebob.

Also, I consider those born in the mid and late '80s to be more Gen Y than anyone. Us born in the early and mid '90s are the same generation, but are sort of the "little siblings" of Gen Y.

They may have some Gen Z in them(esp. those born in '92) but I would still consider them to be mostly Gen Y.

I don't think it makes you partly gen z, it does you party an '00s kid (for the early '00s) like you said about being into zoog disney and stuff, the first year that might be party gen z is 1993.

No, it doesn't. 1990, 1991, and 1992 are VERY Gen Y birth years...being born in Reagan's second term or G. Bush Sr's term is a peak Gen Y thing. I'm not Gen Z at all. Though I was an early '00s older kid, like around 2001. I think that 1993 is the first year with some Gen Z in them.
