I am 25. I honestly hate the “OK boomer” culture. Young people often seem to forget that our parents and grandparents are “boomers”. Sure, they made mistakes but they also created so much, they actively contributed to the civil rights movement and helped pave a road for future generations. They were also teenagers once and they also thought their parents/grandparents are stuck up and close-minded. Do you think our generation will love young people in 30-40 years? This is not a boomer thing, it’s just an age thing.

Same about millennials. Everybody who assumes all millennials are entitled and spoiled is equally stupid. We were not all raised thinking we are the Gods of the world. Also, it’s not like all millennials are open-minded and hard-working. I know plenty of lazy and racist people in their early 20s.

Why do people feel the need to dismiss others’ opinion just because they’re old/young? How difficult it is to hear what people have to say first and then judge them for who they are and not their generation?
