Subject: Who here is Millennial but wants Millennial culture to end?

Written By: nintieskid999 on 04/18/17 at 2:40 pm

I hate this culture right now and want it replaced. It's long overdue.

I don't consider this culture to really be core Millennial culture.  Right now, we are in a Gen Y/Z cusp era in my opinion.  Millennial culture reigned supreme through most of the '00s and peaked in the late '00s and early '10s.  I would say the Lady Gaga/Recession/Obama/Electropop era was the height of Millennial influence on popular culture.

Even Millennial trends that helped define the '10s, like hipster culture and social liberalism, are on their way out.

We're mostly in the Y/Z cusp era, with the Z side dominating us. I said that because it's mostly 2002-2006 babies roaming around the Internet and posting what's cool to them on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, etc.

Nah, most people were already using smartphones by 2013. Plus, Millennials were being generalized as being more tech-savvy than other generations.

There's not a lot of people who like him. The only reason why he won the election was because he won the electoral votes for most rural states.

So? That doesn't mean social liberalism is dead. What kind of logic is that?

About 3 million more people voted for Hillary Clinton (I don't care if you like her or not...you can't change that fact).

I dislike when people say stuff like this because it's a knee-jerk overreaction.

I'm more of a cusp-man, but I think that we are also on the cusp side (but more Zed leaning) of pop culture. I can't wait for a change to just happen, because a lot of stuff in the world of pop culture is just stale now.

The people born in the early 2000s, the last Millennials haven't become teens yet. 1999 was when Millennial culture came in flooding and that's when the last Xers born in 1981 turned 18. Gen X culture came flooding in 1982, when last Boomers turned 18. Boomer culture came flooding in 1964 when people born in 1946 turned 18. Since the earliest the Millennials would end would be 2000, Z culture won't start until 2018 or 2019.

The Millennials changed for the worst. They were at their best in the late 00s and very early 10s. Instead of hipster culture they want mainstream trash with no soul. They also seem to be wanting to enforce very rigid norms, especially gender norms.

I agree that the best Millennial culture was in the late '00s and early '10s.  However, I don't understand where you are coming from about gender norms. I tend to see this with evangelical/religious Millennials, but not the generation at large.

I think you don't understand because the Millennials into it are typically born in the 90s and early 00s. Millennials born in the 80s aren't so much into enforcing the gender rigidity.

I think it's been over for sometime, and now it is early Z culture. I have seen it in fashion, movies, music. It is all Zed oriented.

Only from Strauss and Howe though. They're the ones who came up with 1982 as the start with studies shown, but some of things they mentioned are irrelevant such as the baby on board signs/stickers.

But if Gen X is 1965-1976 that's too short for there to be a generation. All the generations of Gen X I see usually end in 1981.

Which sucks because they got so much better in the late 00s and early 10s. Much more into individuality and self expression.
But then people started pounding on them for being special snowflakes and entitled so much they morphed into the way they were in the late 90s and early 00s: super conformist.

. I've see Gen X starting at 1961 at the earliest. 11 years is too short

Oh, and 1981 being the end is also from Strauss and Howe. Most sources I've seen have that year as a Millennial.

Part of this is the natural course of life as Millennials have left college and young adulthood and entered the workforce and marriages.  Baby boomers - the pot smoking hippies of the '60s who were all about free love and self expression - created the conservative, conformist society of the 1980s that has come to define boomers to this day.

But the Xers didn't turn into conformists. Plus Millennials were also very conformist in the late 90s and early 00s. If there was anything slightly different about you they felt threatened. Workplaces also seemed to demand far more conformity in the 2000s and later compared to the 90s and earlier when I speak to people about the change.

I don't see conformity among my generation anywhere near the level it was at in the late 90s/early '00s.  Back then, you are right.  If there was anything slightly different about you, you would be outcasted.

I find today, Millennials are quite a bit more accepting of people's differences than they were back then, though not quite as much as they were in the late '00s/early '10s.

That makes sense actually! I mean she was in high school from 1977-1981, that's pretty Boomer (albeit Late BB Culture, but I digress). In all honesty I think the major question mark is 1964 borns.

In particular, the C/O 1982, was in high school from 1978-1982. They were at their youthful peak during the 1980-1981 school year which was probably the ultimate BB/X Cusp year in which it was probably 50/50, aka last traces of BB fads like Punk & Disco and the start of new fads gaining massive traction like New Wave. This was also the end of Carter's term and the start of Reagan's term, aka the passage way between the Liberal BB Era and the Conservative Gen X Era.

1981-1982 was still a cuspy school year, but was definitely leaning more X by that point. A major component being that MTV debuted in August of 81', right before. The C/O 83' were at their youthful peak by that point, hence why 1964/1965 borns are the start of Gen X.

(cont) People born in 1960-64 (heck, you can even stretch this back to 1955) are in a grey area between boomers and Gen X, because some of them feel they aren't boomers because they were too young for Woodstock and the 60s counterculture.

While others early 60s-borns feel that they are indeed boomers, because while they weren't old enough to participate in Woodstock, they were born just in time for the mid-late 70s/early 80s high school experience which was still very boomer-ish (especially the music), and were just a bit out of the target audience by the time Gen X stuff like Nirvana came along in the early 90s.

THIS. Although I think when push comes to shove I think most may go along more with Boomer route rather than X.

Those in the 1955-64 are pretty much younger Boomers. The 60s and Woodstock were for all older Boomers.

I think 1946 is the epitome of baby boomers, not 1955. Not just because it's the first year of the generation, but also because they've got all the stereotypical traits of boomers down pat: post-war upbringing, Vietnam draft, Woodstock, hippie counterculture, target audience for the Beatles, being able to pay for college just by lifeguarding the local pool over the summer, etc.

Well they shouldn't be. There was more that defined the Boomers than just those things. It seems that the 70s are largely forgotten when it comes to them.

Well for 56-59' borns yeah. However 1955ers were the very last to turn 18 when the draft was still going on. On top of that 1955ers are pretty the ripe age for all of the major Boomer milestones:

-Childhood in the Post War Late 50's/Early 60's

-8 on JFK's assassination

-In High School During the Counter Culture Era of the Late 60's/Early 70's

-Either Entered College in 73' at the tail end of the Counter Culture Era or was one the last to be drafted in 'Nam' in 73'

-Was the main 'Big Chill' Generation, aka in college in the Punk era of the mid-late 70's

-Officially entered the workforce in the Late 70's/Early 80's

-Was a Young Adult of the 1980's during the Yuppie Era

-Became Middle Aged in the 90's

-Now the stereotypical 61/2 year old business executive that complains about Millennials ;D


I'll give you 1946 (I mean Bill Clinton, W. Bush, Donald Trump, & Sylvestore Stallone were all born in that year!). But from a matheamtical standpoint and cultural standpoint 1955 is like dead center. They're the bridge between the earlier Post war Boomers (b 1946-1954) and latter Punk Boomers (1956-1964).

Well for 56-59' borns yeah. However 1955ers were the very last to turn 18 when the draft was still going on.

True, but it ended January 27 1973. So really only a tiny portion of 55ers would've been drafted.

Well for 56-59' borns yeah. However 1955ers were the very last to turn 18 when the draft was still going on. On top of that 1955ers are pretty the ripe age for all of the major Boomer milestones:

-Childhood in the Post War Late 50's/Early 60's

-8 on JFK's assassination

-In High School During the Counter Culture Era of the Late 60's/Early 70's

-Either Entered College in 73' at the tail end of the Counter Culture Era or was one the last to be drafted in 'Nam' in 73'

-Was the main 'Big Chill' Generation, aka in college in the Punk era of the mid-late 70's

-Officially entered the workforce in the Late 70's/Early 80's

-Was a Young Adult of the 1980's during the Yuppie Era

-Became Middle Aged in the 90's

-Now the stereotypical 61/2 year old business executive that complains about Millennials ;D


I'll give you 1946 (I mean Bill Clinton, W. Bush, Donald Trump, & Sylvestore Stallone were all born in that year!). But from a matheamtical standpoint and cultural standpoint 1955 is like dead center. They're the bridge between the earlier Post war Boomers (b 1946-1954) and latter Punk Boomers (1956-1964).


I think 1954-1956 is the bridge. 1957 is iffy and borderline. They graduated before the war officially came to an end and all of them remember the early 60s and the Kennedy era. They were also adolescents in the last of the counterculture era but were college students of the disco era.

It's not the same as someone born in 1964 who didn't remember the JFK assassination or much of the 60s. People born in 54-56 or even 57 remembered the entire 60s decade.

(cont) People born in 1960-64 (heck, you can even stretch this back to 1955) are in a grey area between boomers and Gen X, because some of them feel they aren't boomers because they were too young for Woodstock and the 60s counterculture.

While others early 60s-borns feel that they are indeed boomers, because while they weren't old enough to participate in Woodstock, they were born just in time for the mid-late 70s/early 80s high school experience which was still very boomer-ish (especially the music), and were just a bit out of the target audience by the time Gen X stuff like Nirvana came along in the early 90s.


The thing is the 60s and 70s bled into each other. The decades had a lot of similarities. This is why early 60s borns are Boomer.

I 100% Agree! I think those born from 1953-1957 are the epitome of the Baby Boomer generation. Old enough to remember (and even participate) the 60's, and still young enough to have fun with the 70's. From what I've noticed, most boomers born before 53' tend to see the 70's as past their time and mainly focus on 60's youth nostalgia. While boomers born after 57' tend to see the 60's as before their time and relish on the 70's.

Most 50's borns, especially Mid 50's borns, were children in the early 60's which still had a relatively post war zeitgeist and had a major 50's vibe. They also are the last to vividly remember the Kennedy assassination which is huge since it marks the democratization between the Post War 'Silent' Era and the Counter Cultural 'Boomer' Era.

They were also possibly the last to have been old enough to participate in youth culture during the Vietnam War/Hippie Era of the Late 60's/Early-Mid 70's.

Plus they were in college during most of the 70's and they were the prime age for Yuppies in the 80's.

Reasons why I would want to be born in 1970 (January to July):

1. I would have been a '70s kid.
2. I would have been a 100% 1980s teen (a teen from 1983-1989).
3. I would have been able to vote in the 1988 Presidential Election (the most exciting and controversial Presidential election of the 1980s)
4. I would have been 17-26 from 1987 until 1996 and I'm in love with that time frame. Especially....1988-1993. I love the late '80s and early '90s.
5. I would have still been relatively young in the 2000s (in my 30s).

I don't consider this culture to really be core Millennial culture.  Right now, we are in a Gen Y/Z cusp era in my opinion.  Millennial culture reigned supreme through most of the '00s and peaked in the late '00s and early '10s.  I would say the Lady Gaga/Recession/Obama/Electropop era was the height of Millennial influence on popular culture.

Even Millennial trends that helped define the '10s, like hipster culture and social liberalism, are on their way out.

Right. Millennial culture was at it's height in the 2000's and the 10's is it's own thing. I want 10's culture to end.

My mom was born in 1957 and My dad was born in 1949. My dad is the quintessential Baby Boomer, he actually fought in Vietnam. My mom on the other hand doesn't relate to the Baby Boomer label as much. However she doesn't relate much with Gen X either. My step dad born in 61' however relates to the Boomer label pretty heavily. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that he was the third youngest of his family out of mostly 50's born siblings. On top of that his parents were both GIs. My biological dad's parents were also GIs. My mom's father was a GI, but her mother was a Silent.

These two encountered were super weird.

One time, I went to class early during lunch time, to study and eat my doughnut while listening to music. I was the only person in the room. One of my Korean classmates, whom I knew somewhat well (we talked on MSN a few times and did a group work in class once) came in and she asked me what I was listening to, and confession I liked listening to Korean pop music back then.  :-[ Anyway, I'm guessing she thought I had an Asian fetish because then she got super flirty, rubbing my shoulders and my hand and doing this weird excessive moaning-laugh whenever I'd crack a joke. Then she started unbuttoning her shirt, and my instinct was to cover my eyes with both my hands LMAO. She tried to get me to look but I didn't relent. She ran out the room in embarrassment. She skipped class and we didn't talk again until an awkward acknowledgement on graduation day.

The other time, I had this girl who'd been following me for a few weeks. I was walking home for lunch one day, and she spots me, pronounces my name wrong and asks if I want to hang out. I told her "my parents are very conservative and don't let me date anyone, I'd be happy to be friends with you though, but I'm busy at the moment" (it's true!). I said "I'll talk to you later" and I walk home. Except a few seconds later, she gropes me and hugs me for like 20 seconds (I was stiff frozen from the shock :o) and then tried to kiss me. It was super gross. Her friend intervened and I got away but that event shook me up for weeks. I relate to people who get "triggered". When a pop song came on the radio or on my iPod that went "I want to kiss you, love you etc." I'd get super anxious and turn it off ;D

Those events were very humiliating when they happened, but give it two or three weeks and my self esteem would shoot through the roof.  :-X

Sounds the same as me. You're part Italian right?

By 9 I had peach fuzz. By 11 it was really noticeable, by 12 I shaved for the first time (with an electric razor though), by 13 I was shaving every few weeks, but at 14 I got lazy and let it grow. But when I got a job I started shaving every week. By 15 it was every other day and by 16 it was everyday.  :-X


Yes, I'm part Italian (Montemaggiore Belsito in the Palermo province in Sicily was where my paternal ancestors were from).

Yeah, I'm partially Southern European too and I think that's why I have to shave a lot.
