There is that in-between area that some have commented about, feeling one way but technically falling in the age category of the other. The online rivalry has forced people to choose sides.
This person detests any association with millennials. But unfortunately, he falls into the generational category bracket of millennials. It’s hell getting old, and we are all going to learn that lesson if we haven’t already.
Founding Father Fashion
This is an exacerbated response to the relentless gen Z TikTok digs about wearing a side part.
This tweet, by someone who describes themselves as an elder millennial, proclaims that wearing a middle part would make them look really old, as old as the founders of the nation. You see what they did here? Middle parts are the oldest and therefore least cool. Ha!
Zzzzzz. Not Impressed
Here is a gen Z tweeting about millennial obsolescence. Gen Z never had a VHS tape or a cassette tape but they still know what they are. It's just that they do not care. These items are rubbish that are of no use to anyone in their opinion!
Well, it sucks for them because they'll never experience the strange wonder of rewinding a VHS tape.
Gen Z LOVES lampooning millennial lingo. The term “adulting” from the repertoire of millennial jargon became an easy target all over the internet.
By the time the rivalry between the two generations took hold, older millennials were far into their 30s. Being the only generation who has to struggle to make it in the world, besides, like, the great depression generation, it was a mean meme. How can they “adult” if they can’t even buy a house?
Laughing Until We Cry
Gen Z went after everything near and dear to millennial hearts. They even went after them for using the common laughing crying emoji.
Gen Zs decided that the emoji was too representative of older people, so they wouldn’t even use it, opting instead for the nonintuitive skull emoji. It makes sense to them because it indicates that someone died laughing. How lovely!
