Let's set the record straight; if you were born between 1981 to 1996, you are a Millennial. If you were born between 1997 to the present year, you are Generation Z. Unfortunately, even amongst the younger kids, Millennials are still the most hated generation. They got roasted by Boomers for having too many opinions, and now Gen Z is taking to Twitter to troll them for their odd tendencies. From using the word "adulting" to defining themselves by Hogwarts houses, Gen Z has a lot to say about Millennials. Prepare to laugh as Gen Z shares their honest opinions about the continuously despised Millennial generation.
1. What Is Wrong With Loving Classic Disney Songs
If you are a millennial, you will understand the overwhelming feeling of nostalgia when you hear songs from an old Disney movie. We don't know if it is because most people from Gen Z are still young, but they seem to hate anything nostalgic for millennials.
What is wrong with being transported back to your childhood? Millennials just want to jam out to Disney songs without feeling judged. Gen-Z is in a rush to grow up, but many of them will realize being an adult is not that exciting.
2. Gen Z-ers Are Triggered When You Say "So I Did A Thing"
First of all, the Harry Potter books are amazing, so Gen Z needs to stop going after them. Second, why do teens hate when older people say, "I did a thing?" Does it really affect them that much?
If we want to make a big deal out of the simple things in life, then that is our business and not the business of Gen Z.
3. The '90s Was The Best Decade Thus Far. Period.
From the television shows to the iconic music, *cough cough* "Hit Me Baby One More Time," the '90s was one of the best decades. So many pop culture icons emerged in the '90s, so how could anyone hate on it?
Maybe Gen Z-ers are jealous because they are growing up in a very "problematic" time period, so they wish they could go back to a simpler decade. That's just our theory.
4. Is There An Unspoken Age Limit On TikTok?
Gen Z roasts millennials for using TikTok, and they also like to call us out for not using it. How can we win with that logic?! If they see Millennials on the app, most of the comment sections are teens saying, "you are too old, why are you on TikTok?"
This is a message for all Gen Z's; please stop telling Millennials to grow up. They are older than you, enjoy your young years while you can. There is a reason that older people say to enjoy your youth.
5. Stop Being Problematic
If a Millennial thinks something is "problematic," it probably is because they have the final opinion on all situations, right? Gen Z must be very intimidated if they think so much into the opinion of people who are from a different generation.
Gen Z has many opinions about everyone else, so when people think Millennials are "problematic," they should really be looking at the next generation.
6. Because Adulting Is Hard, That's Why
Just like Gen Z, Millennials also have their own slang and language. Using the word "adulting" for Millennials is like saying something "slaps" for Gen Z, we don't understand each other, and that's ok.
In defense of Millennials everywhere, it is more fun to use nouns as verbs. You can save a few milliseconds a day by cutting out an extra word or two from your sentences.
7. Thirty, Flirty, And Thriving
Turning thirty is a considerable milestone in people's lives. After each decade of life, you should be grateful that you had another ten years, so people get excited. Is it so wrong to be happy about life?
This is one of those things that Gen Z teens will just have to wait to experience. No one can judge how people feel when they turn 30 unless you've already done it.
8. Buying A New Cactus Holder Is A Life-Changing Decision
When you buy a new holder for your cactus, it is a major decision. You have to make sure your cactus is happy with the new holder, and you have to think about other factors. For example, what if your cactus doesn't like cats, and you buy it a holder with a cat on it?
When people say "they just did a thing," it is not a false statement, they really did do something. Whether it was something significant or not, well, that's up for debate.
9. Saying You Used To Have VHS Tapes Is Like Saying You Used The First Cell Phone
We don't care what anyone says, having a VHS tape is cool and vintage. Yes, Gen Z knows what a VHS tape is, but that doesn't mean they have ever used them. Also, someone born in 2010 and beyond definitely does not know what a VHS tape is, so Gen Z can't act like they know everything.
If a millennial said this statement about those brick cellphones, Boomers would be angry too. Why are you picking on Millennials?
10. The Only Time To Post A TikTok Is After 6 Glasses Of Wine
There is a straightforward answer to this question. Millennials enjoy dancing to music from 2003 because no one wants to see 300 different people do the same dance to "Savage" over and over again. While it is a good song, Millennials realize that there is an opportunity for original content.
As for the glasses of wine, we can only assume that it helps people loosen up and not take themselves so seriously. Why can't TikTok be funny and not all about looking perfect while doing a very rehearsed dance?
11. Self-Help Books Are The Key To Being A Millennial Goddess
Millennials are always looking to improve themselves whether that is through yoga, green juice, or self-help books. Gen Z-ers will understand that they need self-help too once we can look back and laugh about this period of time.
Who are they to judge Millennial's journey to self-improvement? They are trying to be better than all the stereotypes that people have used to label them.
12. Professionalism Is Key On All Forms Of Social Media
Gen Z might not know this little tidbit of information, but employers look at all forms of social media when you apply for jobs. If your Twitter bio says, "all I do is get wine drunk and eat tacos," you might not be considered to be a serious candidate at a law firm. Therefore, people have professional social media accounts aside from their funny ones.
For all the Gen Z people, it might be a good time to put your accounts on private and remove your full name from them too. Just in case you are looking to have a serious career. You can be funny online without compromising professionalism.
13. It's All About The Aesthetic
If you don't have an expensive book that is not for reading sitting on your coffee table, are you really a Millennial? Yes, we spend ridiculous amounts of money to make our cheap furniture look more expensive, and that is our problem.
People might say that Millennials don't spend money wisely, and they have too much debt to be buying trinkets, but that doesn't cross our minds. We will spend however much we want on useless things, and no one can judge.
14. Gen Z Will Understand Our Complaints When They Grow Up
Once you reach the ripe age of 24, your body starts to have weird problems like random backaches from sitting at a desk all day. You aren't as limber as you once were, and it takes longer to recover than it used to.
Also, some cheap wines taste better than the expensive stuff, so why not save some money? Millennials are known for being in debt, so if they have to buy cheap wine, it is better for their wallets.
15. Millennials Were Neglecting Their Tomogachi's As Teens
Gen Z-ers like to act like they are the first group of activists ever to exist. They think that the only people who are protesting and advocating are 22 and under, however, that is incorrect. Women like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) are tremendous role models for younger generations and guess what, she is a millennial.
As teens, we might have been sitting around the fountain at the local mall, talking about boys, but that is because it was a different time then. We could murder Tomogachisand not worry about anything else. Gen Z is on the attack, they are not holding back.
16. Blame It On Gwyneth Paltrow For Naming Her Child Pear
People like to think that their child has the most unique name. This is probably because Millennials were all name Jessica, Emily, Emma, or Ashley. They are tired of having the same name as ten other people in a room, so they went in the opposite direction and came up with odd names for their children.
When celebrities started naming their children after fruits, Millennials wanted to be like the rich and famous, so they thought of weird names. In 20 or 30 years, all these children will be grown up with names that only sound good for three-year-olds.
17. If You Think Pizza Isn't Bae, Then You Are Lying To Yourself
This girl must be talking to some strange people because we have never met a Millennial who thinks pizza and pasta are personality traits. These foods are delicious and fun to post on Instagram, but they aren't substitutes for a personality.
Having cartoon pizza on your phone case or a background that says "I love spaghetti" are people trying to be funny and ironic. Don't confuse those with personality traits, or you might have trouble understanding people.
18. #Adulting Is Hard
Moving out of your parent's home to live alone is a hard transition for some people. You spend most of your life with the comfort of having most things taken care of, and then you are on your own suddenly. You have to figure out how to do taxes, pay bills, and budget your money, which they don't teach in school.
If Millenials want to celebrate their little wins, who are we to judge? You don't have to follow the people who post a picture of their daily wins if it is annoying. Although, one day, when Gen Z starts to live on their own, they can turn to their Millennial friends for advice.
19. Where Else Are You Supposed To Re-Post TikToks?!
The majority of users on TikTok are between the ages of 13 and 17. This means they are Gen Z, so if a Millennial wants to share their favorite TikToks with friends, that audience would most likely be on Instagram.
We just want our Millennial friends to see how funny people are on TikTok, so why can't we share it with the world? We are only making those TikTokers more famous by sharing them with other platforms.
20. Millennials Are Old Enough To Legally Buy Alcohol
Millennials are stocking up on alcohol because being locked at home is boring, so why not get a little tipsy during these rough times. Gen Z-ers are annoyed that they can't purchase alcohol because they are mostly underage.
We are sure if they were old enough to stock up on alcohol, they would be doing the same thing as Millennials. At least Gen Z won't have a dependency on alcohol when the pandemic ends.
21. Doesn't Everyone Want To Know What Cheese They Are?
If you like colonial houses, "Hit Me Baby One More Time," Mean Girls, and you closely identify with Pam from The Office, then you are definitely Parmesean cheese, according to Buzzfeed. These quizzes are life-changing for Millennials.
For the rest of their lives, they will make sure everyone knows what type of wine or cheese they are according to Buzzfeed, and live by the description given at the end of the quiz. Millennials will say, "I'm mozzarella; therefore, I am cute and cuddly."
22. Who Else Is Going To Remind Us That We Are Aging?
If we don't make a joke about getting old, then we have to wait for young people to do it and make us feel sad about aging. Millennials say they are old because we have learned to laugh at ourselves over the years.
Millennials can turn this tweet on Gen Z and say that they love to talk about how young and cool they are with all their TikTok followers and Youtube careers.
23. Movies Seem So Much Better Than Real Life
Have you ever looked out the car window on a rainy day and pretended you were in a sad music video? If you answered yes, you must be a Millennial. It is fun to pretend life is like a rom-com because it is much more exciting than reality.
With everything going on in the world, it is funny to pretend life is a movie instead of dealing with the problems in the real world. Millennials aren't detached from reality; we just try to hold onto the simpler things in life.
24. Sending Memes From Private Accounts Is A Lifestyle Choice
To be fair, not all Millennials send memes from private accounts. However, think about how annoying it would be to find out that your friend follows this private meme account. Sometimes you have to risk it to get the biscuit.
As for the love of La Croix, it makes people feel fancy. Yes, the flavor is not strong, but it has a French name, so you have to appreciate the classiness.
25. Who Is TikTok? We Don't Know Her
Since most people on TikTok are teenagers, it is awkward for people over the age of 24 to pretend like they are "hip and with it" on the app. Pretending not to know TikTok makes people feel more mature because the app is full of immature content.
Why would someone over the age of 30 want to associate with 12 and 13-year-olds who comment on hateful things on other people's one-minute videos? They have more things to worry about than the opinions of Gen Z.
26. Insert Angry Face Emoji Here
Millennials were just starting to get cellphones with texting when emojis were invented, so we grew up using them. Why type a whole sentence when you can use one emoji to get your point across. Gen Z needs to learn to save time texting, and instead, substitute words with emojis.
A Gen Z would text, "I am so angry" when they could just use an angry face emoji and save themselves those few seconds of time.
27. Cooking Is A Challenge, Why Not Show Off Your Hard Work?
Whenever Millenials cook, the French song from Ratatouille starts playing in their heads, and they feel like chefs. Even if they are boiling water for pasta, it is something to document so the world knows they can cook.
If you are a Millennial who can cook an extravagant meal, you are envied by the rest of your generation. Cooking requires skill and should be shown off to the world.
28. We Are An Expressive Generation
Like emojis, gifs can express how you are feeling better than words. Millennials would be much happier if they could only speak in gifs because there are endless options and different ways to use them as responses.
Don't you love it when your friend invites you to pregame, and you can reply with the gif of the agent girl dancing? There are so many situations when gifs are better than words, so we won't apologize for this one.
29. You Are Never Too Old To Love Disney
From the movies and music to the different amusement parks, Disney is associated with so much Nostalgia for Millennials. When they have kids, it is exciting to pass on those exciting memories to their children. Also, those parks are massive, so they don't want to risk their kids running away.
Just because Millenials are decked out head-to-toe in Disney gear while their kids where matching outfits, does not mean they are weird. They might be stuck in the past slightly.
30. Gen Z-ers Love To Attack Millennials Who Post TikToks
Yes, Millennials are known for saying things like "doggo" and "adulting," but this was the internet culture we grew up with. Gen Z-ers don't like to acknowledge that they only know how to do is TikTok dances, but no one is calling them out for that.
Also, Buzzfeed is the end all, be all of knowing what kind of wine, cheese, or which Mean Girls character you are based on a series of random questions. Why are these youngins questioning an age-old system?
31. Millennials Live In Pineapples Under The Sea
We brushed it off when Gen Z made fun of us for using TikTok. Millennials didn't care when Gen Z called us corny, but when they start to make fun of Spongebob Squarepants, that is where we draw the line. That show was iconic with so many different innuendos that Millenials didn't understand until they were older.
To some, Spongebob may seem like a dumb cartoon, but it has so many interesting messages, and Spongebob is part of the LGBTQ+ community, so Gen Z should be on-board for the inclusivity.
32. What's Wrong With Portrait Mode?
Portrait mode makes your photos look like you took them on a professional camera because it only focuses on the subject—millennials like the idea of having crisp, clean shots. Gen Z must like their photos grainy and out of focus because they hate portrait mode so much.
Gen Z is starting to make fun of Millenials like Millennials made fun of Boomers. Now we have gotten a taste of our medicine. Everyone can stop roasting us now.
33. Life Is A Journey, Enjoy The Ride
"On my journey to overcoming adult acne, I learned to love myself along the way." We get it, Emily, you dealt with some life issues that slightly bothered you, no need to call it a "journey."
Millennials can learn to change and stop calling everything a journey, but Gen Z will forever be stuck on the idea that they can all become TikTok famous.
34. Hopping On The Trends To Stay Relevant
Millennials aren't the trendsetting generation anymore, so we have to stay fresh and relevant by trying to learn as many new trends as possible.
Between TikTok and learning how to do Zoom parties, Millennials need to keep up so that they don't feel like Boomers who barely know how to use Facebook.
35. "Get Ready To Give Me Recommendations"
What do you mean people aren't patiently waiting to give us recommendations for Italian restaurants in our area? Maybe Millennials forgot how to use Yelp, so they turned to their Facebook as their own version of the site.
The best thing about seeing people end their posts with "aaannndd go" is when it was posted hours ago with zero responses. Everyone knows that those are the Millennials on the cusp of being Boomers.
36. Gen Z Vs Millenials, The Rivalry Continues
We aren't sure why this Twitter user hates Millennials so much, but they are targeting Emily specifically. Gen Z and Millennials should come together to work through their differences and learn from each other.
There is always something we can learn from the generation before us, and Gen Z should be more willing to learn from their elders to create a more positive future.
