Gen Z is growing up, and millennials’ trends, ideology, etc., are already falling out of style.
Recently a person asked the question to Gen Z, “Gen Z, what are some trends, ideologies, social things, etc., that millennials did that you’re not going continue?” The answers were honest, hilarious, and a little hurtful for us millennials.
One Redditor responded with, “Weird ass eyebrows.”
Another Redditor added, “The early 00s were a dark time for eyebrows….”
A popular comment was, “My parents let me have 0 privacy. Def not continuing that.”
Another user replied, “Oh my god, yes. My parents kept this up until the day I moved out of their house.”
One user replied, “Hipster food is too damn expensive. Why pay 50 bucks for a deconstructed salad when you can go all Peter Rabbit and nab some goods from a local garden.”
A second user added, “IMO, this is a class thing, not a generation thing. There are so many millennials who are still paying off student loans (and will be for years to come) that they’re not the target market for hipster food.”
A comment was, “I have friends also in their early 30s who had kids young. In high school now, teenagers. NONE of that age group use Facebook. It’s an “old person’s thing” to them.”
A second comment read, “Well, I’m gen z, and I don’t know any person my age that uses Facebook.”
A popular opinion was, “The current liberal and conservative lines are changing. Gen Z liberals want it to be focused on more socialist ideals rather than intersectionality, and Gen Z conservatives care less about atheists and LGBT and only wanna focus on economics and families. I suspect as they mature, the Republican party will become slightly more libertarian, and the Democratic one will become more socialist, which is already happening for both. Still, I think it will grow even more.”
One Redditor wrote, “Honestly, it doesn’t seem like any age group is being particularly ‘social’ anymore. I work pretty hard to keep my social groups together and active, and it seems like my kid, who I guess will be Z, doesn’t even have the time around being over-scheduled to even think about being social anyway.”
Another Redditor added, “Man, one thing millennials and Zoomers got in common is the damn high amounts of depression and anxiety. So I think we’re roughly similar in being habitually dysfunctional with other human beings.”
A user commented, “I think self-deprivation humor is dying, and I think millennials started it. Like it’s seriously getting old when people say they are depressed as a joke.”
A second user added, “I completely agree and recently unfollowed those IG pages where women out insult themselves to each other, but very gently, I think the word you want is deprecating**.”
A Redditor commented, “Cringe culture is DEAD, as long as it’s not hurting themselves or others, let people enjoy things!!”
A second Redditor replied, “I didn’t realize our generation does this. like it just hit me we don’t shame anyone for the more uncommon **** people do.“
Working To Work
One Redditor replied, “Work for money, not for passion. I know it’s depressing, but recently, many younger millennials have been talking about how they want to do something they like. My coach is getting a Ph.D. in history. My economics teacher is going to Law School because she doesn’t make enough etc. and I just can’t think of a reason to justify that much debt. Basically, they’re putting themselves in tons of debt to make enough money in something they enjoy. I can’t see a reason to justify it enough. I just want to find a field I’m GOOD at and don’t hate.”
A popular comment was, “Whatever happens, I just hope cancel culture gets canceled. Too many people are getting accused of stuff they never did for internet points.”
One humorous reply was, “Collecting user data for advertising purposes.”
Another user replied, “LOL – that will never end.”
A user on the edge of both generations said, “Born in ’98, so I don’t know which side of the debate I’m on (personally, I think millennial = pre-2000, so I think I’m a millennial). Cable television. I really think making TV for streaming services is where we should end up.”
One Redditor replied, “Early 2000 fashion, a hot dog that was bad. I want anyone who contributed to that to cry over their mistakes.”
A second Redditor said, “If any **** from that era makes a comeback in my lifetime, I’m going to exile myself into an off-the-grid campsite at least 100 miles away from any civilization in all directions. F***. That. s***.”
