i honestly dont understand why we dont just merge zoomers and millenials into one group. we're so similar on so many levels that we're almost not different at all
@cdmnky millenials watched regular show tho
@cdmnky sure, why not
@cdmnky nobody said you had tooooooooooooo 💗
zoomers don’t have memories of a time when payphones were common, when you had to have a landline to call people, when parents let kids play outside, when the only portable entertainments were books and Gameboys (if you were lucky), etc.
@Aerdan thats one of the only places we differ tbqh, culturally we're extremely intercompatable
@Aerdan you can pick out a few differences here and there all day long but if you made a venn diagram of millenial culture and zoomer culture, it'd be like a 85% overlap
@bhtooefr im talking on a more cultural level than a "what do we remember as a generation" level
like yeah, we're obviously different in the fact that we grew up with different cultures surrounding us but ive always felt like i get along with and understand 'zoomers' way better than gen x.
its like we laid the groundwork for their culture to develop and so its kindof backwards compatable?
hard to word but thats the jist of it
@bhtooefr and even so, i was born in 1992 and my childhood is more in line with zoomers than it is previous generations.
sure there were a few years where we didnt have things like internet and cell phones but that was all before i was really old enough to care or use it anyway. and in my most formative years later in my childhood, was basically what zoomers grew up into.
@bhtooefr yeah i'd have to agree, ive noticed the younger genxers understand us more and are wayyyyyy more in line with our culture and values
@bhtooefr i feel like even if they dont understand, they're cool with it and not all fist-shaking angery at "kids these days" like the boomers. they also TRY to understand it, even if they cant, which is far better than i can say for a lot of the older generations.
