Gen Y is Millenials…
No it isn’t, this is gen Y erasure. Marketing companies just realized millennials was a buzzword and got more clicks from boomers and millennials so they expanded what a millennial was to piss off more people. Nobody knows what a fucking millennial is anymore some scales have 40 year old gen Xers included as millennials. Then you have boomers calling everyone from Gen Y to Gen Z millennials because they think anyone under 40 is a millennial. The internet was a new thing and a novelty for Gen Y a lot of kids didn’t even have internet for most of their childhoods you can’t group them in culturally with people raised on the internet. Gen Y has as much in common with Gen X as they do with millennials. If Gen Y isn’t real why did we go from X to Z? And why are millennials called millennials if not because they were born around the new millennium in 2000?
As I understand it millennial just means they came of age around the turn of the millennium, not that they were born in 2000. I’m pretty sure gen Y and millennial are the same thing.￼ Gen X is like 70s and 80s babies and Gen Y/Millennial ￼is late 80s/early 90s babies.￼￼
