Seen a lot of zoomer-hate on multiple threads on /snow/ so here's a thread for the discussion of the up-and-coming generation, the fortnite-dancing, tiktok-browsing, irony-poisioned Der Ewige Zoomer.

I was bored googling the other day and was reading about generational names over the last 100+ years to learn more about Great Depression era.
The article was written by a zoomer and of course when talking about her own generation she was saying how amazing it and progressive they are while with buzzwords rampant. Narcissism off the charts

I know people often lump boomers and Gen X together, but what's the difference in your own assessment? I was under the impression boomers were worse in terms of entitlement.

The way I see it, it's the same shit we did as kids online except they'll victimize themselves if you call them out. We would hardcore rp on gaia and maplestory, they now have did so they can rp even more, we'd call ourselves xXxSaSuKexXx they'd say they're actually fronting as sasuke because they're delusional and you're not allowed to say anything about it or they'll have a breakdown and call you an ableist. We would say we're depressed emo vampires, they'd say they're nonhuman blood/bloodself irl vampires and ridiculing that is transphobia.

They get mutual support, it's a circlejerking thing on tiktok

What I hate the most about zoomers is that they "cosplay" eras, they don't have their own.
E-girl is a bastardization of the scene fashion, cottagecore is just horsegirl fashion, y2k style is literally what we wore when we were kids. Zoomers aren't living in their generation, making up their own shit. We you say shit like 2000s, 90s, 80s etc you can exactly pinpoint the fashion, the trends etc, but with zoomers? They don't have anything, their wardrobe is just shein shit that mimics other fashions, except we were hardcore on it. In my days, calling yourself "emo" would be considered being a fake emo or a poser, because other people had to see you as emo, not yourself lol
We had some sort of shit rules, but thats where it was fun.
Now alt fashion is just "I don't wear skinny jeans and white tshirts"

This is my concern, that millennials had silly LARPs that didn't typically go beyond the internet, but zoomers are so impressionable they take the LARP offline and demand you validate it. All the mental illness claiming this generation does is really gettingout of hand.

How are trends and subcultures made? There is almost always an element of taking inspiration from previous generations and subcultures, relitigating their narratives and cultural output and translating these bygone cultural moments into new subcultures that have a fresh and youthful character, the likes of which is developed and added to over time. By the purity standard that millennials here subject zoomers to, millennials haven't created anything either because "millennial" subcultures have also reimagined or borrowed elements from previous generations, or were technically started by generation X and were simply maintained by millennials.

In the past the different subcultures were based around music, certain beliefs and practices, community, etc. Now their subcultures are basically just playing dress up for Tiktok and Instagram. I'm hoping zoomers can come up with more original ideas and material as they grow older.

No. 1066377

>>1066367
Yes. A lot of them like it both ways. They'll give the most attention to these skinny girls and worship them as fashion icons but the second the unspoken rule of "respect the overweight (as well as minorities, trannies, etc) because of the sjw rules" is broken, they all gang up on whoever said they don't like fat people or think fat people are ugly to teach them a lesson. Usually this will bring in a shit ton of attention and positivity to a fat tiktok user who is then forgotten when the arguing stops.

Online spaces with a majority zoomer population seriously have these people, I'm really not joking. The zoomer equivalent of a terminally online gaifag definitely is going to act like that. They are a minority not even denying that, but online their presence is loud.

I just get annoyed that zoomers act like torrenting or pirating or even unzipping a file was something they had to be taught, never search for the answer on their own for their very common question on forums and they always make a new thread to get some small thrill of attention.

Or the zoomers who are too scared to torrent. I'm a 21 year old zoomer and when I was caught in the tiktoktrap, I would see so many zoomers in the comments of videos about torrenting that said stuff like "but it's sooooo scary!!! I'm afraid" like motherfucker what. It's one of the simplest things in the fucking world. There's a lot of learned helplessness among zoomers, I feel.

Zoomers haven't even finished developing their brains yet, since the brain fully develops when you reach 25, allegedly, so I can't hate. Everyone will grow up.

This is true though, the tech illiteracy is really surprising. They don't know how to work simple PCs, it's really sad. Or paying for services online that you can easily get for free, it's pathetic.

No. 1066404

Everything is an aesthetic to them or a mood. They don't make anything for the sake of having fun or creating, everything is about status or fostering their brand.

No. 1066411

I would disagree. I don't think they copy previous trends exactly, they copy previous trends and make them more conventionally attractive. They all have to have a full face of zoomer tiktok makeup when they're dressed as early 00's scene kids or as cottagecore milkmaids or mid 90's waif chic, etc. It's so disingenuous and pornified and it's sad to see.

Good lord, YES.
The porny face is what sells zoomer fashion.
80's were all black liner and mascara, 90's was shiny and glitter eyeshadow, shiny gloss lined with a dark lip pencil, 00s were the year of emos with no lips, no eyebrows and raccoon eyes.
Was it shitty? Yes. But was it uncanny and porny? Heck no. In fact, that wasn't for enhancing feature or being attractive, it was for having fun. Sex Work Culture fried a lot of zoomer brains, thinking they're sexually liberated when they're just young and its creepy

I also think it's because of Nikki Tutorials and his drag queen influence on the makeup of modern women. Zoomers can make fun of the late 2010's instagram makeup all they want but they are doing the same pointless techniques to their own faces, techniques for drag queens, aka men, that they do not need because they are female. Very clownified, and again porny, and sad…

I'm a '99 zoomer so my peers aren't quite as terminally online as the kids still in high school, but in my experience, as long as a zoomer isn't living on social media and doesn't have consoomer tendencies they're alright. It really is the narcissism and compulsion to constantly consume things that rots most zoomer brains.

No. 1066510

Zoomers seem to have really bad shopping addictions, more than other generations. Skincare addicts that hoard product because fear of age and wanting to show off their collections on tiktok, zoomers collecting everything and anything “aesthetic” including things from the past (y2k for example) to be more ‘authentic’, etc.
I think it’s due to consumerist culture, trends that constant change and you need to keep buying product to remain “in”, tiktok, and the ease of internet shopping.

No. 1066524

It makes sense, nowadays you could live in some deserted shithole and you'd still be able to order a lot of things online. When I was a teenager Amazon was definitely a thing but it wasn't used nearly as often as it is now and my parents and many people of their generation treated it like some kind of potential scam because of rare cases of people's money being stolen online. I remember that my country's equivalent to craigslist was almost only used to buy and sell things to people face to face back then but now it's easier to buy things online on that website and it's way more functional than before. A lot of shops now have the option of letting you order what you want online so you can pick up your order in their physical stores. And a lot of online shops were created these past few years. Basically there are more options now than ever and you only need an electronic device and an internet connection to have access to thousands of stores from all over the world instead of just having to go to the mall, and zoomers are more used to this than older people who got used to the internet way past adulthood.

I have a zoomer coworker and I can't talk music with her at all. She always talks about fandom aspect and how she stopped being a fan because of toxicity online and its like, you don't listen to music for the music. She also doesn't listen to albums.

Zoomer fandom/consoomer obsession is so tacky and bland. All stores now are practically just fandom box stores. This really disappointed me with hot topic since you use to be able to walk in and find awesome edgy alternative clothes, now it's like 90% fandom and bright, fluffy, sequence, it's almost like a Claire's or Justice. Or how many zoomers are like 14-17 and making kinks a personality trait. I've also noticed gen z had a huge wave of people claiming they're vampires, witches, etc. This definitely happened with teens before but what's going on? It's like they took all the cringey parts of the previous generations and amped it

I don't even care about cottagecore, egirls, etc. I know it's not their fault though since they just eat whatever they're fed which ofc is just consoom, fandom, you're totally a mythical creature/practicing witchcraft, ddlg/kink and the bizarre divide between gen z being bullied into having extreme body proportions or else they're flat/underdeveloped but also being talked into gender dysphoria and having to flatten everything down.

This! People made fun of emos and goths for having phases but those phases stuck for a good couple of years and by the time they were done they made the slow transition to whatever their adult style ended up being. At least they made some money selling their old shit or whatever, with zoomers they are pretty much stuck with worthless garbage after they get tired of their little trends. Even the normies didn't cycle through shit at such an insane rate.

Zoomers are so hard to talk to because they literally cannot stop documenting it online. They lose their fucking shit if they have to look away from their screen or they can't mine whatever you're doing for content. At least when millennials wanted to be extremely online they were chained to a "computer room" everyone had to share.

I do hope a lot of zoomers will grow out of a lot of this bullshit. They don't understand that they have essentially immortalised every essence of their cringey ways. At least a lot of us has no means of posting ourselves or were born in a time where people were more cautious of posting their identities. Not to be an old lady, but seriously NOBODY seems to have taught zooomers the importance of internet safety, they just post their whole entire identity online and don't think anything bad will happen and that they don't make themselves easy to dox.

Same here anon, although I’m glad I was still an awkward kid when everyone was barely getting into instagram and snapchat back in 2011. The only setback I see from not being an overly online zoomer is the fact alot of people network through social medias or even making friends is hard when you have to explain that you dont have instagram, snapchat, etc.

You're definitely right but zoomers don't take any sort of criticism seriously because they get criticized over everything. Being a minimalist, collecting items, most hobbies, etc. This is why a lot of them reference a "different time" like the 2000s, 80s, 50s, whatever because even they're sick of consoomerism being shoved down their throat and going back to a previous time before that honestly seems like heaven when you can actually watch things or go places without being bombarded with ads and fandom

I think zoomers and (90s born) millennials are about the same amount of intense when it comes to SJW topics. I’m on the cusp of the zoomer gen and the friends I have who are 5+ years older are way more annoying about SJW things than my fellow early zoomers.
I will say though that Zoomers are AWFUL when it comes to using computers. They are way worse than my boomer mom at just using Word to type an essay. Ive had to show my 13 year old cousin how to copy and paste a URL multiple times. Idk if it’s just because a lot of them are ipad kids so computers are foreign to them but it’s perplexing.

Everything zoomers do is so CRINGE they don’t have like, subcultures man. Every group from when I was growing up was actually super deep with based world views and real world action, like emo and scene. No one ever romanticized dumb shit like mental illness or drugs and none of it was sexual, especially not whale tails or bondage inspired stuff. Everyone DIYed all of their clothes and Hot Topic didn’t sell any fandom stuff, it was an anticapitalist hub for counterculture meetups and then we would hit the mall food court to fuel up for browsing the other 50 shops. Like, imagine wanting to dress like a gothic nerd and not even tying it to music that I personally find acceptable? peak cringe!

I went from portable CD players, to mp3 players, to ipods, to iphone, then to android and using streaming services. I have never noticed the lack of albums or why people would just focus on singles unless they just get hooked on marketing. All my favourite artists still put out complete bodies of works. Pop artists or shit artists I get produce albums that are just a collection of songs selected for them. I still have a massive music library and play songs off shuffle but I enjoy listening to the complete bodies of works, there's artistry to how they're put together. It seems weird that people don't seem to value the actual content but would more rather focus on trends and numbers. I've noticed a lot of these people get their music through video games or superhero shite.

Gender bending and pronouns is literally what I think of when I think of zoomers. That's their unique thing. All their fashion is rehash of precious decades. Non binary is zoomer culture and putting so much emphasis on appearances that lip fillers and botox are new normals. Maybe it's a product of fast access to porn. There's a scale or sexless to oversexed. Millenials saw homosexuality become normalised and steps towards equality and now current day has an abundance of sexual and gender identities. The youth went from wanting to save the planet to self obsession.

Same. Used to be, you didn’t tell anyone you watched anime or advertised it by wearing pins or shirts, because you would get ridiculed. On one hand it’s great anime isn’t as stigmatized, but the anime that’s out nowadays is more coomerish, and no one seems ashamed of showing their degeneracy anymore. If someone wore an ahegao shirt back then, they would be ostracized and bullied. Nowadays it’s “cool”, and it disgusts me seeing people wear that shit in public.

Ironically, back then there were some people that misunderstood that all anime was hentai and would think watchers were creeps. Now all anime is very pornified and it seems no one actually has a problem with that, it’s actually “aesthetic” to have ahegao and sexualization.

No. 1066842

>>1066812
the increased pornification as a whole of culture thanks to zoomers is annoying. not even just the sexualized songs, they've been around since forever, the obsession with euphoria which is basically just porn + addiction. the sex doesn't even correlate to the plot and i wish the turbo zoomers who keep defending the show would stop insisting it does. except for the plots that are inherently degen like them shoving barbie ferreiras character into the camgirl role. euphoria really has no need for the grotesque and graphic sex scenes regardless

No. 1066859

>>1066842
I think shows like Euphoria are purposefully trying to make zoomers, most who are minors, more sexual. Sperg, but this trend of objectifying bodies and sexualization really only benefits males, and gives them the benefits. You don’t see the majority of boys making ahegao or objectifying themselves. By having shows like Euphoria “normalize” risky behavior, the more teens are going to think that’s just how it is. There’s a creepy agenda being pushed.

I wanna add that sexualization is probably one of the quickest ways a girl or woman can get attention. It has always been like this. However, it seems no one has taught (or wants to teach) zoomers why this attention can be negative or where it stems from. It’s constantly pushed by media, and reinforced by places like tiktok.

Are there more “sex workers” among gen z? Or do zoomers just advertise it more freely, making it appear that way? I’ve seen way too many girls that as soon as they turn 18, start an OnlyFans, as if it was some sort of age passage. It can’t be all monetary related, the reasons for joining. The pay is apparently pennies since the market is over saturated. Is it for validation and attention? Do they think it makes them a “cool girl”? They aren’t thinking of the consequences it could have on future jobs.

I have had some fellow zoomers basically tell me that they hated History as a subject in school because it’s all fake bullshit written by old white men and there’s nothing to learn from it.

I hate the zoomer victim complex, where they start shit with you online and then go 'b-but I'm a minor!!!' if you say anything back.

Also the weird vendetta they have against adults existing on the internet in general, if you're 25+ in an online space (even if you're there to connect with other adults and are making a concentrated effort to avoid interacting with kids) get ready for them to feel 'unsafe' and try to cry-bully you off the platform. It's weaponized weakness and it's so fucking annoying, if I'm a big scary predatory hag and you're a uwu little baby bean maybe just block me? You're terrified of seeing my posts while you scroll a tag but brave enough to directly message me to tell me how unsafe you feel? Fuck off. Also I love the double standard where men/troons are allowed to be genuinely predatory in fandom spaces and no one cares but a 30 year old woman accidentally reblogging a post by a 17 year old who has "adults DNI" somewhere in their bio is literal child abuse.

Also fuck the entire concept of DNI lists. Again I understand that young millennials started it but zoomers take it to another level.

Anal requires a man to be very hard the entire time, if he's the type to lose an erection as soon as something isn't just like porn he won't be able to do anal. this includes the "I lost an erection because we switched positions/you corrected me/this is taking too long/etc" men. I don't see why porn addicts keep pushing for anal when they'll lose their boner as soon as they have to put their money where their mouth is

There is a lot of sex issues with normies though, good, mutually pleasing and fun sex is just a distant fantasy with most men. They all have erection issues and take too long to finish

Based thread, hopefully it won't devolve into self-flagellating not like other zoomers and vice versa zoomers crying and yelling at how it's actually millenials who ruined the world with zero understanding of recent history.

>>1066317
As a millenial from late 80's, I remember a lot of people flaunting their mental illnesses in the early 00's as well so it's not a recent thing. Young people have always been overdramatic but how I see it it's become a mean of escaping responsibility and gaining authority rather than just seeking for attention.

>>1066373
Basically. Subcultures have disappeared as they've been reduced into aesthetics to wear as a costume, not a lifestyle you believe in. It's intertwined with >>1066343 , social media and late stage capitalism has made it so that it's seen as old-fashioned to dedicate yourself to something bourgeoise like an alternative style that brings you a sense of belonging instead of filling that void with activism. Before you could get your sense of purpose from being a part of the local goth scene and contributing to that, now it's about outrage over human rights. A cause that has been equally commercialized in the form of pride flags and stickers you can buy at hot topic.

I don't even blame zoomers themselves for this, it's been mentioned in other threads but it's Gen X that took what millenials started and monetized its aesthetics to peddle for the younger generation. I know retarded gen zrs accuse millenials of starting the tranny trend for example but any one of us can tell you that that shit was directly leaking down from degenerate Gen X coomers. All of the big troon influencers and millionaires funding the lobbying are Gen X and some legitimate boomers. Millenials don't own shit, we have no authority or power to conduct any big illuminati scams.

>>1066524
>zoomer terfs suck, it's just another aesthetic to them
Agree. A lot of the spergiest and most unreasonable "radfems" on this site are obvious zoomers who are only into it because of the based manhating girlboss aesthetic. I don't trust them because they're the kind of people to make a complete 180 when a perfect Nigel gives them crumbs of attention.

It's only now that tranny agenda is becoming normalized and a lot of people are allowed to transition even as children aged as young as 6. At your time trannies were delusional gay men you maybe came across once a year when you were late out and they were looking for customers but now they're everywhere, especially online and groom young kids into the gender agenda. It's not wise to blame a generation for this when it's much deeper. Also doesn't help that most men and some women who support this and groom the zoomers are gen x or y coomers.

I feel like most, but not all of the complaints about Gen Z we're caused by millennials or just things that were shoved down their throat
>Tranny shit, being told they are trans over every little thing, or just having to make up some sort of special sexuality or else they're just boring
>SJW shit was always pushed to Gen Z by millennials (Laci green for example)
This also explains why the main leftie cows who always push troon sjw shit are almost always millennials
>Porn addiction, sex work, sex positivity, etc
This was heavily pushed by millennials and Gen X. Gen X dads always pushed their sons to sleep around and watch porn, older generations were often the ones grooming young girls into sex work and the kink community as well as actively praising and glorifying girls who acted as sexual as possible regardless of age. Now they're lying to girls claiming they'll make millions from onlyfans just to get cheap nudes from any girl they choose and those girls are scraping pennies. I also remember porn addiction being encouraged as funny and quirky
>Consoomerism
Gen Z does not run corporations, it's not their fault everything is rapidly detoriaring in quality and corporations are now exclusively shilling fan merch and nothing is original anymore
>Extreme body proportions, Photoshop everywhere, constant body altering being the norm whether it be through padding, Photoshop or plastic surgery
Gen Z was bullied since before they got their first period if they didn't have massive tits and ass while remaining skinny. It's hard to tell who's to blame in this situation but millennials encouraged this behavior as well. Millennial men are definitely guilty of pushing this on Gen Z girl

The only valid complaints are TikTok nonsense, phone addictions, and "-core". "Cores" aren't even that big of a deal imo. Even then that could be debatable due to the fact it was millennials and Gen X who decided to push everything to be online to the point where you would have to have a Facebook or something in order to be considered normal, not to mention school, career, etc is becoming very social media involved too. I remember when I was applying for colleges in 2015 a lot of the essays asked for things based around social media like "what hashtag are you" and I was also told that have a popular and clean social media account looked good to colleges and employers. Are you going to tell me Gen Z, who were all 15-18 at the time, did this?

No. 1067993

>>1067730
Plenty of Gen Z are breaking out of it but the millennials often "cancel" them and they get attacked relentlessly if you have any sort of discrimination. It was millennials who started demanding people get doxxed, fired, kicked out of housing, etc if they didn't agree with someone.

This is really the main thing I dislike about zoomers. Capitalism combined with social media has rotted their brains. Social media has become so much more about ourselves than it is our shared interests, they've become their own product and sell themselves to get clout. Our brains can't process more than 1000 or so people as their own individual persons, let alone tens of thousands of people viewing you on the internet and reacting to you. That's got to do some damage to the developing brains of teenagers and I don't have hope for how they'll turn out.

That being said, aesthetics are just shallow. That's it really. It's stupid to change your style so often to fit this insanely fast trend cycle, get your own style, stop wasting clothes.

No. 1068039

I don't get why millenials and zoomers are being blamed for porn in this thread, since it's been normalized way before these generations.

sage for blog posting but I remember being a teenager in the early 2010s and every time I would go clothes shopping I would have a breakdown because everything was so ugly and cheap looking. The financial crisis really destroyed the fashion market for a good few years there. But I would always tell myself when I got older I'd put enough money aside to buy nice quality clothing.
Now I live in a great city with a lot of cheap but good quality op shops and I'm not spending nearly as much on a decent wardrobe with quality, stylish pieces. I think growing up around that time and having clothes literally fall apart on you when all I wanted was good clothes that last really made me consciously choose clothing now. I look at the fabric type, consider how well it goes with the rest of my wardrobe, check the brand. The result is clothes I've had for years that I treasure. This is something I'll just never get about gen z. Don't you want clothing that lasts? A style that is uniquely you? Do you really need to change your aesthetic every 2 months?

Tumblr was not at all mainstream. I remember when it first started around 2006 or so. Trends happening on tumblr were solely tumblr based. It felt like a secret group some people were in on, and I do remember the friends I had that used it we hated the tumblr genderspecials. They were like snowflakes to us. Even back then there was constant comparisons to scene and emo kids vs new age trannies. Like I grew up in the 90s with a known transvestite as she was called back then. She worked in the local tesco, she definitely wasn't a millennial by any stretch. She also got the lane next to her house blocked off because its where teens would hang out and smoke and drink and she would cry about antisocial behaviour but no one bothered her. She still lives there and had anti vax propaganda in her front garden lol. What I'm saying is, just because something was on tumblr does not mean it was the start of a movement. It was all those retarded college students and Democrats and Hilary fucking Clinton that pushed through the trans agenda. They even removed obstacles for young people to get hormones.

The early 2000s were pedo heaven. I remember the body trend att was essentially either someone who was still going through puberty.. or someone who started to starve themselves young enough to avoid gaining curves. Low rise jeans, jutting out hipbones and a hint of a gstring was the trinity. Few grown women could maintain the level of skinniness that was required for that look.

I remember the playboy bunny logo appearing on bed sheets for little girls rooms. I remember my mom dragging me out of a store once because this kids shop had a t-shirt with a shinx cat on it and some text like "you like muh bald pussy?" Teens back then were getting most of their sex and dating advice from monthly magazines. Shit marketed at us was pretty sexual but then we were weirdly naive about the fact that dressing that way won't only attract the attention of age approariate boys. Like I feel old but I remember a friend passing around that months issue of cosmo and us skipping to the agony aunt pages to try and hopefully learn something about sex or how our own bodies work.

I rewatched some of laguna beach recently, which other ppl remember it being like the biggest reality show right?
well it has EXTENDED SHOTS of high school girls trying on bikinis, zooming in on their chests, butts, bellies.
and a scene i remember where one of the girls was getting a massage (so she was topless with a towel over her back) and she got up to get her phone and almost flashed the camera, and the other girl with her was like "omg be careful you almost flashed ur boobs!" and they just KEPT IT IN. a 16yo girl doing that. it was the end of the convo and the scene ended right after that, they obviously couldve cut it out but they just kept it in.

Young millennials and zoomers have been exposed to sexualization more than any other generation. It's hard to point the finger at a certain generation exactly but it's more of the higher ups who run everything as well as the older millennial/gen x parents who just let all this shit happened and encouraged it. I just find it hard to place all the blame on Gen Z who's had porn and sex shoved down their throats before they hit puberty

When I was a kid I stumbled across an issue of Cosmo and the article was about g-spots and orgasms. I don't know if the cosmogirl equivalent ever got that explicit. It is amazing how late millennials were arguably exposed to a less pc culture, but our consumption of content felt unrated by comparison. For rated content, the content of PG-13 films have been watered down significantly, but channels such as YouTube have opened up with minimal regulatory restrictions until a few years ago after elsagate. So the ways the late millennial and gen z crowd were messed up by their television and film consumption overlaps while significantly differing. The worst part is being in the sweet spot between the two generations, mid-late 90s babies have a dissonance from the early 90s or 00s kids of not really feeling like they "belong" to either group.

No. 1068851

So basically
Millennial culture:

Gen Z culture:
>conformist left wing culture pushing for all the same things but under the disguise of empowerment and acting offended by everything

This is a old millenial looking at zoomers take or maybe its more looking at how society has changed.

One thing I always find really weird and jarring is the idea of wanting to be punk or goth, it feels like its become a brand or clothing you can buy from a store now, everything is a product and made for consumption, the music,the views etc don't matter.

zoomers treat everything as a core,style,aesthetic and I wonder if its more enjoyment about being into something before it blows up rather than being into something for enjoyment sake.

also a vibe I get is a basic idea of
>If I say these words or lines or follow these rules then I am a good person

its easier to look out than within so im pretty ignorant to millenials flaws besides depression and harry potter.

everything for zoomers feels like you can't like it for what it is, it has to have some form of poltical, snappy critique , wokeness, lgbtq esque style to it, like empty yass queening or hating white people (white americans hating white americans).

>social media really fucked us all up but you were all raised with it from birth we at least had a few years without it being at the fore front of society

Sage for blog/no1curr but I found another zoomer who has a flip phone (no social media or discord or anything) and it's so refreshing. We can actually talk irl and I never have to worry about texting him back, I just call him to ask if I can come over if I want to talk to him and I never have to speak to him if I don't want to. So many people my age will just sit on their phone while you're talking to them, I hate it. It's just rude.

Most of cottagecore fits look like traditional folk clothing from my rural area and tbf, zoomers aren't the first ones randomly thirsting over rural lifestyle, it's been a thing since the 17th century. A lot of richer city people end up buying vancancy homes in the countryside for that reason, it's a bit annoying because it can gentrify a whole ass town.

I remember in the early 2000s it was a trend to deck your whole bedroom out in their hot pink bunny shit.. at pre pubescent age. A big store in my country was selling everything from jewellery to bed sheets. The rings came in childrens sizes (I had one, I just saw a cute bunny and was clueless) iirc the sheets only sold in single size. It was naive and trend hungry kids begging to be bought this stuff. Every now and then you'd hear someone bitching that their mom wouldn't let them have a playboy lamp in their room but none of us knew why.

Younger millenials and zoomers were both fucked over by prior generations. At least older millenials had a childhood without the internet, but everyone past that don't know an existence without the internet, smartphones, and social media which is a fucking hellscape I can't imagine. Millenials also absolutely got shafted by the 2008 recession and have never recovered. Many still cannot afford to live independently, and it's looking like zoomers will be in the same boat with everything happening in the world.

NAYRT but Gen X set the cultural tone for Millennials. Anything that was popular in the 90s/early 00s (media, fashion, music, etc) was most likely delivered by a Gen Xer. People often mistakenly blame boomers for stuff that Gen X actually introduced/popularised.

No. 1078361

>>1066291
Most people forget about Gen X entirely, but they are the parents of Gen Z and when you pay attention to Gen X, you can see why zoomers are the way they are.

Gen X are more nihilistic and consoomeristic than Boomers, they were the first to grow up with mass marketed and mass produced crap. They are "anti-establishment" while mindlessly following the status quo. The uniting culture among them is shopping addictions. Gen X were the "culturists" and due to their contributions to art/music/media are more likely to cling to youth and being "cool" (most of those cringey older people on TikTok are gen X). Due to their latchkey upbringing, the first gen to spend childhoods in front of the TV, many have pathological attachments to corporate products and brands of their youth (Pizza, Star Wars, TMNT, MLP, you get it). This is why 80s/90s nostalgia has a thing for the past 20 years, they cannot let it go. Gen X moms were the first helicopter parents (so wounded by their lonely childhoods they feel compelled to hover around their own kids to overcompensate).

The game was released in 2006 or 2007 in my country and if I replayed it now I bet I'd just find him speaking like the average late millenial and early zoomer, so he wouldn't even be quirky at all anymore.

The oldest Gen Z were born in 1996. That makes them 26 this year. Many people are married parents with responsible careers and own a home by that age. Maybe the millennial insistence on infantilising fully grown adults, in order to avoid the responsibilities we refused to take, is actually the bad influence we’ve had on zoomers.

Most of these points are relevant, but the first one I have to comment on. One thing that zoomers should learn from millennials (and fast) is that very few of us made money off a degree. The people who have always, consistently, made money are those who get a practical skill and get very very good at it. You don’t need to go into debt to become financially comfortable; in fact, due to degree saturation, it’s the opposite that is often true now. Unless you’re doing law or medicine or something that requires a degree, don’t bother. It’s not worth it.

It depends on where you live and on the local job market. I made sure to only study in a good public university because it was free for me and because I could get a small scholarship as long as I didn't redo too many years (because my parents are poor). And since I stayed with my parents I didn't go in debts, I "only" lost opportunities like internships, going to better private schools and exchange programs because I was poor to leave my parents' place to begin with. My degree helped me get a fulltime office job with normal shifts even if the pay isn't amazing. If I were American or British or lived in any other country where tuitions are very high I would have never went to university or college. But yeah, don't go to uni just for the sake of it, plan according to the job market where you live or it could be a huge waste of time and money.

Zoomers use "incel" as a pejorative in a similar way that the word "retard" is used. When you call something a retard, you aren't LITERALLY saying that the person is question is actually mentally challenged - just that they're an idiot.

Incel is used in a similar fashion - when zoomers call Kanye an incel, they don't mean it in the conventional sense of a man who is involuntarily celibate and sexually unsuccessful. It's used principally to insult misogynists or men with an annoying or hostile attitude towards women, who may or may not be sexually successful.

I also feel bad that they have to grow up with so much technology.

zoomers are just boomers rebooted. their culture is homogenized and extremely standardized. except instead of broadcast media dictating culture, it's the internet.
they're no better or worse than any other generation of young people, but as a millenial i think what confuses us about gen z is that we think we're the same type of "internet generation" when really we're not.
Corporatized web 2.0 is to zoomers what broadcast TV was to the boomers.
i hope that makes sense, maybe i'm dumb. the best example i can think of to illustrate is how neither zoomers nor boomers understand a joke unless you use the proper "format". boomers hated deadpan, surrealist, or unconventional humour like the simpsons or south park because it wasn't how jokes were "supposed" to go. gen z takes everything you say completely seriously unless it has the right template/phrase/tiktok sound/meme format.

I’m sorry but you sound like an idiot implying that university is for immature people whose hedonism lead them into a trap. People start preparing for university at 14-16, guided by adults and wider society. Learning a trade is always an option yes, but children are also very much actively discouraged from following those routes. It really isn’t their fault. Also expecting the average 26 year old to be married with children is weird, like genuinely strange and unrealistic, especially when you consider that most people go to university. I would ask where you live but I know that it’s not the standard in your country, because it isn’t anywhere. A lot of gen z who “do whatever they want” don’t go to university.

If you decide to read that as me “being mean” or think my experience being very different to what yours apparently is/was makes me an idiot then that’s your problem, not mine. There’s an increasing number of people taking degrees that do not directly translate to a career (like a law degree for example) or - even worse in a financial perspective - taking entirely academic degrees like gender/ethnic studies or creative routes where qualifications (in most cases) are superfluous. It’s 3 years of your life and thousands of pounds of debt for no material gain.

I didn’t claim anywhere that was standard to be married with kids at 26, wtf are you talking about? My original point was a comparative example that taking a more traditional route actually does put people in a better financial position than what young people tend to do now - stay single and spend years/£££s on education for no reason other than they don’t know what else to do/want to pursue an interest regardless of the benefit of doing so.

What some school do though is that they'll pull out a number of kids they believe are flunking and encourage them to get trades they have shown no interest in which has burnt out most of them I've met in that situation, they don't even bother attempting to help them.

I've noticed that a ton of gen z girls are gravely terrified of aging and think that not looking like a neotenous babyface equals being a grandma. I never saw that among my peers when I was in my early 20's, sure people were concerned over not being skinny enough or not having big enough breasts or smooth enough skin etc., but nobody was concerned about not looking like they're 16 anymore. And there wasn't that much hostility against people in their 30's either, now I see zoomers constantly acting as if 30-year olds are out of touch with reality middle aged boomers ruining the planet and once you turn 25 you might as well die.

Yeah you didn't have plastic surgery shoved in your face as often or get told you're peak attractive at 18 like zoomers do. The most popular kind of porn now is barely legal, hair on women is seen as disgusting and being thin and young looking is idealized by most men today. Cope as you will but the beauty standards of today are now literally unreachable without ps and young girls think to be attractive you have to look like a photoshopped insta model.

The whole plastic surgery and photoshop thing isn't as new as you think. I'm about to be 28 and I've been told by some of my doctors to get a boob job because I was too flat when I was a teenager completely unprompted, plastic surgery started being more advertised to young millenials as a whole, and I remember seeing many reports on TV about how photoshopping was being more and more common on actual ads and that, at least in my country, some activists were trying to make it mandatory for companies to explain if filters and photoshopping was done on the ads, and thankfully they've succeeded.

Actually what I've noticed is that as soon as actvists managed to make companies use less tricks to make younger millenials buy their shit products and make them more insecure, said companies and then influencers started targeting zoomers because they became easier targets thanks to social media as opposed to traditional media like TV, magazines, posters, etc. Basically, what you're talking about already started way before when you think it started and then made a come back for a slightly younger generation.

Did you ever watch TV? Imagine that spongebob trash meme but I am pointing at the early 2000s with The Swan, I want a famous face, Birdalplasty, other MTV trash dating shows, sexist shows like wife swap, and the generation before that always having the message shoved down their throats that beautiful is good, ugly and old is bad etc.

Zoomer pop culture is all about how cool it is to be unique, diverse, different, how we need to accept people, how make up is bad you should instead consoom skin care, how you can't call someone fat or ugly and the commercials are intended to be "empowering". There's that comparison of a commercial from the 90s where a woman forgets to shave her legs and suddenly she's an ugly fat man vs that modern commercial where young attractive women show that they also have armpit hair, but you can deal with it if you make that choice kek

Nonita…"photoshop" has been a thing since black and white photography. Portraits of rich people were always made to display unattainable beauty. If you look at manga from 2003 you will find plotlines about characters who photoshop their pictures, kek.

I am very curious to see how zoomers collectively turn out when they reach their 40s or so. I wonder whether the awareness surrounding body positivity will have made a significant difference, or if we'll find ourselves caught in the current cycle of beauty standards, or if there'll be whole new problems to deal with regarding beauty that we couldn't even predict now

You're right but nowadays most social media profiles are photoshopped. No one used to think people in magazines looked like that irl but most normies believe what they see on insta. Men also believe the girls they follow on insta are real and that they deserve someone in their league when in the old days, even retarded men knew they wouldn't get a Victoria secret tier gf.

NTA and I agree. None of my peers ever said anything about being sad that they're aging, maybe they'd worry about having children in time but never about youthful beauty fading. I expect the age worrying to start once people hit 35+, not now in our mid-late 20s. And zoomers already worry now in their teens.
When I hang out at student parties where younger people (18-23) are, you can pretty much hear how pressed they are about age - everyone constantly asks everyone about age, talk about it and so on. 'How old are you?' is the most common question. And they can never tell I'm older and moids usually think I'm younger than them. I look my age, light wrinkles and all so for being so freaked about aging, they're pretty bad at detecting it. Or maybe media made them think you really shrivel up once you hit 25.
I think zoomers are an okay generation but I feel really bad for girls who are made to obsess about their youth.

Opinion discarded. I'm 99.99% sure you're trolling now.

Why would that even be a cause to fight for if nobody believed that photoshopped models and celebrities looked like that irl?

Obsessing over fake asses and fake tits is one thing but I do feel bad for zoomers for being made to obsess over the natural aging process because that's pretty much impossible to slow down, unless you smoke two packs a day and spend your time in the sun around the clock without sunscreen it really boils down to genetics how you age in general. Skincare helps only a tiny bit. And not only that, the current standards for youth are literally 15-16. You're supposed to have this poreless glass skin with childlike facial features but also either a plastic ass with fake tits and drag queen makeup or heroin chic level skinny with OTT lip fillers.

I often think about that miserable anon in the celebricows thread who tinfoils that Billie Eilish must be secretly 30+ because she zoomed in to some of her unedited red carpet shots and she had "fine lines" around her eyes. People now have such a warped fucking view of aging and beauty standards in general due to teenagers being pushed as being at their prime.

Honestly I think they're just really bad at telling the actual age of people. But maybe it's not a zoomer-specific thing but more of a teenager thing.
And yeah I agree that the ideal now is 15-16. That's how most girls edit themselves to look. Damn, do you think it's gonna get even younger? The 'lolita' cute child pedopandering? Or the next gen will totally change it as a pushback of sorts?
It biologically makes more sense to have the ideal of beauty be around 30 than around 13 so hopefully it won't get even worse.

I am not on that level of crazy, but you have to admit Billie's stylists pushed that whole "wow suddenly she's mature" thing too hard. In the case of women, it really often comes down to styling and body language when you're in your 20s and 30s. I've met people who can pass as high schoolers because they don't wear make up and still use backpacks, and I've met people who could pass as middle aged librarians.

>>1086521
But the thing is that the ideal is not 15-16. Real teenagers have that clumsy vibe about them because they're still figuring themselves out, what I see being popular on tiktok is teens who act like college students. My sister is 19 and I can see that she's a teen even when she puts on make up, she needs filters to give her face that "mature" look.

The point was some crazy anon tinfoiling that Billie Eilish is actually in her mid 30s because "no 20 year old has fine lines like she does in this ultrazoomed photo" because many people think you have smooth porcelaine baby skin until you turn 25 and then just crash and burn into mummydom. Not how she's styled.

>>1087311
Of course young women have always been considered more attractive but the scale was much wider before. Nobody thought a woman aged 28 or 32 was "old". Only when she was nearing her mid 40s would she be considered "older". If this shit doesn't stop at some point soon 12-year olds will be considered the ideal beauty.

As annoying I find zoomers to be at times, I'm pretty sure us millenials were equally annoying but we don't fully remember it since it was either not documented online the same way and/or the websites have that we used have been taken down by now.
However I do agree that zoomers have some boomer-esque behavior sometimes, some people seem to have a habit of obsessively wanting to have the last word no matter whether they're right or not, from my experience at least might just be a coincidence.

I miss when there was such a thing as "normality". Echo chambers couldn't be insulated properly back then, and were constantly exposed to criticism by an ocean of "normal people". To be one of the normals, you didn't have to have the same opinions or tastes as them, you just were assumed to be one automatically, no entry requirements or ideological strings attached. It was a default, Zen state of being. You could go off and become an obsessed die-hard spokesperson or believer of some specific thing or issue, but ultimately normality was so prevalent and overarching that you'd always end up self-reflecting and thinking "wow, I really got hung up on this one silly thing pretty hard, when there's so much more to the world" and returning back home to relaxed, carefree normality.

Negative echo chambers, elitist trends, pity parties, etc. would become embarrassing phases in people's pasts. Positive and fun trends and movements would go down as nostalgia staples. But they used to be just that, phases. Now it seems like the first thing you latch on to, you have to insulate yourself into it permanently, or you have to jump ship to another group and burn your bridges. And the things trends form around nowadays seem so much more Machiavellian, "do what the other people here want, or you don't belong" rather than the old days of "you belong, if you enjoy the same things as people around here"

The whole boomer-zoomer-millenial generational groups aren't naturally occurring anyway, they're just groups meant to encapsulate people born and raised in the same time period and place with the same cultural influences, in America specifically. America is big enough on its own that it renders the groupings ineffective and redundant imo. Someone born in Wyoming will have a completely different life than someone born at the same time in New York.

No one outside of America belongs to any of these groups, and I'm annoyed the rest of the world sort of adopted the terms when it has nothing to do with us.
One group is even called "baby boomers" because of the abnormally high amount of babies born in the US, after soldiers came back to the US from war.
What the fuck does that have to do with my country that had nothing to due with that war in any way, had no such baby boom, and is on the other side of the world in a different culture with different values?

Mid? Millennial here (1990), Zoomers don’t bother me much. They’re really young, so I don’t think it’s fair to judge yet, plus they’re playing off stuff that the millennials started, being that we were here first, so I can’t blame them for accelerating what was already set in front of them. I just can’t find it in me to get so mad at them?

Children definitely shouldn't be spending all day looking at screens but I feel like it's okay to let toddlers watch childrens films and shows on their mom's phone, and it could be useful if the kid is watching educational stuff, but parents should definitely watch content before they show it to their kids. I feel like most children can develop normally enough if parents aren't neglectful of their kids

I wouldn't do this since I spent most of my childhood being on the Internet and would've had no one to talk to otherwise, wouldn't develop my own interests and hobbies (still finding that boomers listen to the most boring unimaginative music ever and only watches popular be it Marvel, Disney movies), you'd also become aware of what's been removed or changed on the Internet. I don't really feel like there's a point in socializing anymore in person because it would only cause more problems from my experience, doing it under a nickname allows them to learn from mistakes without it interfering with their personal lives. The worst thing that could happen is social platforms forcing you to use your real name only, and stuff like TikTok seems to have a bad influence because you're recording videos of yourself that can be reuploaded anywhere and most of them all act like retards “because it's funny.”

i don't hate zoomers, but i do hate when they try to act like everyone else is so out of touch and they totally invented some trend that's just a repackaged version of another generation's thing.

stuff like picrel is severely embarrassing. wow you laughed at bUTtEr KniFe? that's repackaged "i am the spork of doom! so random!!!" thing millennials had. also the constant casual references to having severe mental disorders, which most of them pretty much certainly do not have, is painfully cringe

You're very obviously a zoomer, I don't get why you'd be confused.

This doesn't mean much, I was born in 1994 and I remember the transition from VHS to DVD but in my household we didn't get a DVD player until way after everyone else because of my parents not wanting to "get rid" of their VHS. I know the reason why the PS2 was so successful was because it was a way cheaper DVD player compared to anything else in the market and it could play a bunch of excellent video games, but that didn't convince them either. It depends on each household basically. For instance I had my first smartphone in 2014 in my second year of university because we were poor, but I remember when my very rich classmates in middle school in 2007 bought the very first iphone day 1 to get rid of their ipods. Technology was progressing so fast in such a short amount of time not everyone born the same year will have the same experience at all. Now I feel like progress for products available for the public at large is stagnating.

This is my main gripe with gen z. They simultaneously shame millenials for being soulless consoomers who don't care about the real issues but when it comes to debating and activism they suddenly stop giving a shit and can't be assed to write a coherent reply because taking things seriously and looking for depth and nuance is cringe.

I think it's been said before in this thread but what they mean by capitalism is obviously corporatocracy which is basically corporations ruling out society, views on ethics, supporting class wars and controlling the judicial system. The "ugh, capitalism am i right" is just projecting everything wrong with their life to a boogeyman they don't even fully understand.

i know this thread is about zoomers but can we talk about the forgotten middle children, the zillennials? too old for gen z, too young to technically be millennials except for certain years like back in 2016 when suddenly everyone remembered the people born 1993-95 ish. when every murdoch owned news station started ranting about us slapping avocado on toast and us not popping babies out like rabbits or buying our first homes or getting our first corporate jobs in our early 20’s like they did? we’re the gen who can never fit in because we remember all the trends like emo, scene, and goth but were just too young to really appreciate it before it died down. we grew up with tech enough to understand it, but we can also remember times where we went without it. some of us were online as preteens during the early days of big social media giants and the death of others like myspace, so we are the ones who are most nostalgic for web 2.0 because we caught it at its peak but were around to watch it fall as well. it’s like we are constantly getting the dregs of every generation but have nothing that really defines us. i remember we were the gen that the whole autism/asperger panic really started to take hold especially in the us and uk, and a lot of us were the ones who were turbo autistic about anime (japanimation back then) because it was surging in popularity and we weren’t exposed to traditional western cartoons as much. it’s just weird because no one ever talks about us and we can never seem to connect with anyone. boomers hate us because a lot of us are loners due to our upbringing, zoomers hate us because we don’t really give a fuck about all
their cores or whatever, millennials bullied us and never accepted us into their cliques because we were weird to them, so we’re just there, stewing in the corner. you don’t even see a lot of us online, it’s always 30+ year olds or 12-18 year olds. i often wonder where we all
are but then remember i haven’t had a social media account since i was like, 12? way back in the mid 2000’s and this seems pretty on course for a lot of zillennials.

Nah the generational difference, in my opinion, is if youtube existed in your "childhood". If youtube didn't exist in your childhood but showed up in your adolescence/teen years/young adulthood you're millennial, but if you, as a CHILD watched youtube video or can't vividly remember life before youtube existed, you're a zoomer. There is no zillennial. It's a hard line but various by individual/geography.

Another one I like less but still kindof agree with is 9/11. If you have vivid memories of 9/11 and had some degree of "opinion" about it, even if that opinion was something silly like "oh god we're going to have a world war 3" then you're a millennial. Otherwise you're a zoomer.

The 9/11 thing only really works for Americans, or for westerners in general. We're French, my little sister was 5 at the time and doesn't remember it at all but I was 7 and still remember it like it was yesterday because it was showed live on tv when I was celebrating my bit sister's birthday and we all went from partying to being horrified while people where dying on our screen. According to makerters and sociologists I'm a millenial but my sister could either be one of the youngest millenial or one of the oldest zoomers so in her case it's really ambiguous. I remember Youtube being a novelty back in the mid 2000s too, everything about computers was taught to me as a novelty and I remember time before the internet became mainstream too.

I do remember when Chirac and Le Pen were at the second round for the presidential elections in 2002 too, and I guess my parents were right, the kids at school were parroting all sorts of racial slurs at me, probably because their parents said them at home all the time.

>Phuket tsunami in 2004.

I'm also Finnish and me and all of my friends remember it vividly, I was in my early teens back then and it was the first "major event" I had ever lived through. It was all over the news globally and it was the first disaster like this since the world war. The 9/11 attacks definitely changed western culture in general and the resurgence of patriotism in the US rippled through every country following the US pop culture. I personally feel like your feelings regarding it is a very good generational indicator as zoomers probably were too young to really witness the cultural shift.

You just sound like a young millennial to me tbh. I was born in 1994 and I relate to a lot of this except for a couple things (like I definitely was around for the peak of the emo/scene fad). I don't relate to every little thing about millennials but I don't think anyone does. For example I remember myspace at its peak, but at that time (when I was 11-14) I was technically too young to be on myspace (you had to be 14 to make an account, I lied about my age). But most of my peers did not have myspace because there parents wouldn't let them have it. By the time I was technically old enough (2008) myspace had mostly died and everyone had moved to Facebook.

Also I was 7 during 9/11 and don't remember it at all. I do remember the fallout though (well, not really, I just remember the crippling anxiety from it because I was raised religiously and thought the world was gonna end). And I thought when Fox News was mad at young people spending too much money on avocado toast and not buying homes etc they were specifically targeting millennials.

Still French anon here, I was born the same year. We used Skyblog the ultimate cringe instead of Myspace. Maybe older French people used Myspace but everyone started using FB after that as well and it was seen as a thing for teenagers and young adults back then. I only made an account in 2016 because of uni but from what I've seen before that I'd say the shift of demographics using FB was very sudden. Now it's all boomers and all the young adults who made accounts a decade ago at least have deactivated their accounts or stopped updating them long ago. btw, Tiktok is seen as that app for zoomers but now I wonder how many people remember when it was called musical.ly or something similar and when it was only advertised as a lipsynching or karaoke app. Nobody gave a fuck about it at the time.

the way into 2001 in the mid 2010’s when the culture wars started taking off, and 30 year olds i went to university with were telling us that unless you watched thundercats or whatever cartoons they liked as a kid, you weren’t a “true millennial!”. and now that zoomers are the new social pariah, i get lumped in with them despite being in my late 20’s since old people are retarded. i constantly have to remind them that yes, i know what cash/change is, rotary phones, dial up internet, aol, how to read an analog clock, or something else that their grandkids don’t know how to do or aren’t as familiar with. i remember i was at the bank a couple of weeks ago and the clerk made this condescending remark about me being able to write in cursive and i had to remind him that i am a lot older than i look and i could hear his brain sizzling in confusion behind his mask. it’s just seems like people have this weird memory hole from the mid 90s and assume we are either freeloading slackers or technical prodigies.

Those 2 adult characters are so unrealistic, you could change the age of either and it would not change shit (beyond maybe some small plot details, IDK).

Finally I can ask my question about zoomers in secret without being shamed

I like the band My Chemical Romance (gay, I know). I’ve liked them since they originally came out when I was in my 20s. For some reason the zoomers love MCR also.

ANYWAY I am going to their concerts coming up and sometimes read their subreddit or Twitter, and that’s where I have my main zoomer interactions and are they serious with the “I’m shaking, I’m sobbing shit”? Is it sarcastic? Like a new single comes out and they’re all “I had to pull over in the car, I was shaking, crying etc”

Are they gonna fucking shake and cry at this concert? Is it a joke or real?

Why do zoomers think just wearing a black shirt makes you goth or part of any sort of alternative subculture? I saw some white dude call this girl wearing a black sweater and black sailor skirt goth. That's it. That was all she wore. In fact, I've seen this often with the zoomers where they will call basic normie outfits goth or something. Way to water down entire countercultures.
Do the majority of them come from uptight wealthy east coast old money families where black is considered for funerals only? I don't get why wearing a black shirt would make anyone goth.

I don’t mean this in an insulting way I’m just calling it as I see it, but zoomers really don’t have a grasp on what being part of a subculture actually entails. Everything boils down to over simplified, primarily online aesthetics to them. Their generation is adverse to elitism and gatekeeping, so things boil down to being so “inclusive” that the definitions become really loose. I know it’s not all zoomers, these are just over-arcing patterns I see as someone who is a really late millennial.

>everything boils down to aesthetics to them
Absolutely. And everything is a ripoff or throwback from previous gens. Zoomers also:
>are individualistic to the point where caring about anything even your loved ones or gf is cringe or simping
>are terrified of conflict and rejection so they put up with FWB situationships for months-years because it's "cringe no cap" to just ask someone to be your gf or bf
>have a little gender crisis everytime their mood or style changes

No. 1271022

>>1270971
oh god the
>caring about anything even your loved ones or gf is cringe or simping.
thing.
I got into a disagreement with someone on Discord over what that meant. I forget what the pretense was, but he said one of the things he does is 'simp for his "girl friend" ' (gf gets quotes around it because it's a troon) and then the 'gf' clarified that he meant that he talks to 'her'. The bf got mad at me when I asked why talking to his 'gf' would be considered simping–shouldn't that be considered normal behavior and not… simping?

because to me, I thought simping was more of a one-sided liking of someone? Like a wk but with more 'step on me, mommy' vibes? Or am I too old and not understand the new-fangled terms?

Why are zoomers so scared of everyone being a pedo?

Maybe because their parents taught them to be hyper-vigilant against pedos since they grew up with the internet from a very young age. So being taught to always be on guard for pedos that will hurt and take advantage of you mixed with extremely early exposure to hardcore pornography that wires your brain to see any situation as possibly sexual and makes you believe that everyone around you must also see everything as sexual must be hard for them to process.

Ntayrt, I agree. I know a couple of tween girls with an older millennial father and he's just wrecking socialization for them. He's way too involve and treats them more like extensions.

It's been so frustrating to work with zoomers. Mostly because my company is production but the moment we have to discipline them for not following safety rules (i.e. using phones in the factory, headphones at work, sitting on production tables) they either A) start crying "YOU'RE RETALIATING AGAINST ME" or B) don't listen.
Interviews have also been weird since they don't carry conversations very well (either strained answers or oversharing).

Zoomers are so phone-addicted, self-centered, and socially terrified. The MALE zoomers act like scared women in 70s crack-land NYC and put their backpack on the bus seat next to them so no one touches them, even when the bus is absurdly full. They always have earbuds or headphones and their stupid little phone is always always always in their greasy little hands. They dress like grubby overly-sexual rats and act like frightened goblins. The female zoomers don't even wear shirts, they just run around in a bra. The male zoomers all have that mulatto perm. I saw a zoomer in a korn shirt the other day with those black pants with the huge fashion chains like he fell out of 2003. They're also really dumb and don't know how to do anything, even though they have a fucking smartphone glued to their sweaty little palm and could look it up in 2 minutes. They can't speak proper English or spell correctly, they seem to "read" a lot of books but none of them can spell basic words, so they're either just watching the movies, reading the sparknotes, or only taking selfies with the cover and then saying they read it to posture. They're really bad with money and can't do anything for themselves. If you look at /r/personalfinance (yes we all hate reddit, I know) it's full of the dumbest fucking shit you could imagine all from zoomers, things I would expect a 12 year old to know. It's like they need permission to have common sense. And they're all really fake trend-hoppers. They're constantly seeking affirmation and are massively insecure.

Mostly I'm mad that they do not move the fuck over on the bus. I'm going to just start shoving their backpack off the seat to give them a lesson in manners. 0/100 chance they would even say anything, the terrified little shits would just sit there sweating anxiously. I have never seen a zoomer actually speak to a stranger, even the 20+ year old ones. It's like they need their mommy to hold their hand for everything. And the corona stuff has destroyed them. If anyone gets within 6 feet of them they piss their pants in sheer terror. I live in a crowded city and they need to get out of my way and deal with it.

This is true. With zoomers/young millennials it's different since they did not only have porn shoved down their throat by pickme women, older moids, and "humor", they were also convinced it's a normal and healthy part of discovering yourself (I also hate how acting like a perverted degenerate is considered "discovering yourself" like some weird coming of age movie). It makes it so much harder to explain to them how porn addiction negatively effects them and others then by the time they open their eyes they have already destroyed multiple relationships in their life and abused multiple women and ruined themselves for any decent partner

I work as a bartender/server in a busy restaurant. I have, over the years, become increasingly furious at whatever internet forces have converged to make your ~emotions~ an acceptable excuse for getting out of doing work. Moderate embarrassment, """panic attacks""", and constant crying are all acceptable things to do in the workplace for people under 25 now. And they expect the older people to pick up their slack.

I'm not a heartless asshole and I do recognize that work can be hard, but somehow it's now considered ~stronger~ to openly weep in front of your coworkers and customers than it is to suck it up and do your job. I also hate that I have to pick up the work of 2 - 3 other people when the Gen Z-ers decide they need a good cry, or to just fuck off and go home.

Idk what people our age were doing on the internet so many years ago if they weren't emulating millennials though.

There’s no Tiktok general for me to post this but this particular Zoomer (lordazothmain/sagemainirl) keeps going after creators just for doing ulzzang/dolly makeup. Her latest stunt is harassing some 17 year old from Mexico over some shitty makeup, being racist and then saying “but my friends who are (insert race here) said it’s okay!” while blaming it on a speech impediment. It’s gotten to the point that the moment I see call out videos like this, I just turn my brain off and block the user. I want to know how much free time a person has to be going on and on about how a person is doing their makeup a certain way but give passes to others to do the same shit. Zoomers are so brain dead and puritanical about the most benign things that they are just becoming fake woke boomers that will go after anyone that they don’t like.

I thought I was nuts for a while but I can unfortunately corroborate most of this. Chose to go back to school (never finished bachelor's, changed fields, etc) and a good majority of classes are filled with zoomers. I notice a lot of these issues creeping in, that one being painfully apparent. The amount of whining and complaining - borderline email-bombing the professor demanding clarification - over a short write-up assignment with basic instructions, was beyond me. They took issue with there "not being a clear syllabus" when instructions were given to us VERY clearly early-on for the entire course. What the fuck hand-holding do they possibly need over a 4-page MAXIMUM short technical paper? No presentation, no rhetorical requirements, no opinion piece. Just cite mechanical engineering journals, summarize the arguments, conclude. That's too hard, apparently. Holy fuck. Everybody 25-30 or so had zero issues outside of formatting or common grammatical mistakes.
Not to mention a good third of the zoomers failed to turn in final assignments on the deadline provided, to the point of bragging about it. They were given a week extension because of how far behind they were. At this point, I'm convinced the younger they are, the less capable they are of abstract thought.

I felt like I was going insane for a while because I visited my home town a while ago and the kids there acted all sorts of weird. Of course, everyone dismissed it as just a millennial boomer ranting about kids these days, but I have excellent memory and I sure as hell don't remember any children acting the way these kids do.
I've also noticed a weird phenomenon of parents being overprotective yet not actually parenting at all. The same playground where I would play by myself with my friends was now filled with children and their parents, with kids being instructed what to do by their moms ("Let's go on the swing! Do you want to swing?") and barely interacting with other children. At the same time, the parents seemed tired and annoyed that they have to be there. These were not toddlers who could barely walk, these were preschool-age kids.

I've noticed something similar with my cousin - her son is literally not allowed to be bored. She will dangle screens and toys in front of him all day or put him to do 'stimulating sensory activities' or whatever the fuck so he can grow to be the next Albert Einstein, but he's never allowed to be bored and play by himself because that's too dangerous and he'll break something. At the same time, she whines and whines how it's super hard being a mom, she's sometimes even passive-aggressive to her child, but it's not his fault. She literally just won't back off.

I was raised by a neurotic helicopter parent and I feel so bad for these kids, at least my mom allowed me to go outside and play by myself.

I'm so glad I found this thread because as a more in the middle millennial since I was born in 1990, there have been so many things I've noticed with zoomers that just make me question things. I've already seen so many good observations like the bastardization of alternative subcultures like Goth, Punk, and Emo where these kids think it's just a "core" /aesthetic" and the blaming of capitalism when they are the ones actively upholding it instead of going against it.

But something I have noticed is how it seems like these kids are averse to using terms like "girlfriend" or "boyfriend". Like I've watched a few videos of zoomer aged people and all of them call their significant others "partners".

I also had this coworker who was much younger than me who got offended when I referred to her partner as her "boyfriend". I didn't want to argue with her so I apologized but I was b baffled because her "partner" is literally a man so I didn't get why she got offended and no it wasn't a troon neither, like a full on guy with hipster beard & glasses and all lol.

Like others have said Gen Z really does feel like all of the worst traits of millennials and boomers condensed into some of the most neurotic kids yet. I can’t blame them too much though. These kids have literally never lived in a world where the internet hasn’t been extremely accessible at literally all times. I think a lot of their anxiety and reactionary traits stem from the fact that a lot of their stupid teenager decisions will likely end up online forever in one way or another. People nowadays are not guaranteed even a basic sense of privacy as you never know who’s watching (or filming). We don’t even have the autonomy to decide what does and doesn’t show up online anymore. I wouldn’t be surprised if all of these neuroses about having things like instructions broken down to the minutia are a symptom of that. It’s really not surprising a bunch of impressionable kids are hyper paranoid of everything they do and say when they see adults being blasted online and losing their jobs for tweets from ten years ago.

I remind me of something I noticed when going outside. Zoomer fashion is currently inspired by 90s and 2000s fashion, but not the normal, average trends that everyone was wearing at the time. It's all inspired by things worn by celebrity or in fashion magazines so it's way more revealing now than before. For all the girls I see wearing comfortable looking mom jeans, there are 10 girls wearing one of those ugly asymmetrical croptops that basically require you to nor wear bras if you want it to look as intended. I absolutely don't remember adult women, let alone teenage girls, wearing that kind of things in the 2000s because this shit was mostly visible in magazines or on TV.

Like other anons have mentionned, I'm tired of everything being turned into an "aesthetic", especially when they transform the whole essence of that said aesthetic to fit their fast fashion/makeup desires. I was born in 1997, I remember what was trendy and viral in the 2000s and it feels really sentimental to have some of these elements become trendy again but I despise the instathot/tiktok zoomer shit they associate with it. It feels so fake. They didn't grow up with these movies or music, how can it make them "nostalgic"? Half the viral tiktok sounds are old songs sped up, the "y2k" fashion has never been real y2k fashion in the first place but more like "I don't wanna wear skinny jeans and regular tops anymore", the egirl/emo era they all had has magically disappeared after quarantine even when they claimed they were hardcore alt and builled for it lol. I know most of them are young and looking to find themselves but they spend so much time and money on stuff they will throw or sell away once they hop on something new, it's so sad

This seriously perplexes me. I was born in 1990 and when I was a teenager in the 00's I just didn't have the money for trend hopping and couldn't even afford the more OTT alt styles that I wanted to try out. I only knew a couple of kids with rich parents who bought them all the clothes they wanted or they had a shitty paper route for a bit of extra money. How the hell are all these zoomers clothing hauls so huge? I get that fast fashion is cheap but as a teenager I would've never been able to blow even $200 on a few month's worth of outfits.

Boomers joke about millenials being too immature but zoomers seem to be the first generation of kids who genuinely don't want to be adults.

My younger sister is the walking embodiment of tumblr/twitterfags who constantly go "I'm a literal child!".
My mother and I gently try to tell her that maybe wearing stripper heels with straps up her calves to school goes too far and she keeps calling herself a child that nobody is allowed to look at anyway - at the age of 17 and a half…
The reality is simply different, especially if pic is your usual choice of outfit. She's so woke that she lost any touch with how the world actually works. And so dramatic, hysterically throwing fits over the tiniest things. I can't imagine her living on her own in just a year at all.

Most would categorize me as a Millennial, as I was born in 1985. (People sometimes use a separate subgeneration between Gen X and Millennials, and I often get thrown into it.) While I agree with the nonna upthread who finds generational categorization rather arbitrary and stupid because so much of it really doesn't apply to much of the world and is very generalized for those it applies to, I still see some things I see younger people do that is kind of weird to me.

One of the things I notice is how a lot of Zoomers seem to scare so easily. I've seen so many of them mentioning about how something out of kids' shows is so scary. I don't mean something they watched as a young child, but were scared by it, but rather, them first watching that show when they were teens and being scared by it. I mean things like seeing a Sesame Street skit or going on and on about how dark Steven Universe is. There have always been people who scare more easily than others, but there feels like a larger proportion than there once was.

Also, I see a lot of living vicariously when it comes to Zoomers and interests. I've seen a lot of Zoomers say that they're a big fan of a video game, but all they have done is watch livestreamer play through it. I get it that not everyone has to be a superfan of something, but this feels like the very opposite. And they don't seem to do this to save face or fear of missing out, either.

Zoomers seem to pass off sharing and repeating the same damn meme and joke over and over as top humor, too. I know that every generation has had its share of memes and certain repeated jokes, but again, the issue seems to do with putting minimal effort into anything and the sheer volume of it. I can't think of how many times I've seen a stupid meme comment on YouTube liked thousands of times and who knows how many repeats of that same comment in the same comments section. There's so little variation, and you feel beaten over the head by it. It feels like just repeating this crap at ad nauseum is what makes it funny to them.

I do agree with some others who say that Millennials had to deal with sexualization of things and themselves at a young age, too. But a huge difference I feel is that Millennials had a degree of naivete about this that Zoomers lack. For instance, Zoomers outright know about who knows how many kinks that are out there and BDSM bullshit, whereas Millennials at that same age were less likely to know about those things, and those who did still only knew of them at a very base level. Even more basic sex stuff seems to have been more thoroughly understood by Zoomers at a younger than than Millennials. And this seems to go beyond Zoomers who are chronically online, too.

For real, maybe it's just because zoomers have easy access to shopping online? As a millennial, for the most part I had to go shopping at the mall with my mom buying and approving of my outfits. I'm surprised when I see zoomers wearing outfits I'd never be allowed to wear. Also back in the 2000s teenagers called each other "slutty" a lot as an insult, and wearing these outfits would be considered tryhard.

I dress like this, kek, but only because it’s affordable and accessible. Thrifted oversized men’s shirts and straight vintagey jeans. I realize I must look like something between a GTA protagonist and any male main character of a foreign Latin film in the 1980s but I do not, unfortunately, have enough money to be able to dress how I want.
Also, I don’t think the millennials here realize how lucky they were and are. So much better quality clothes were at your disposal: now all you have is polyester that literally comes apart in your hand when I take it off the rack. I remember one anon said that walking in the mall had become weird for her, since all the kids are dressed in 90s fashion that’s not really accurate 90s fashion at all, with cheaper fabrics and weirder cuts; this is true, what we have now is this strange simulacrum of vintage, throwback trends that bear little resemblance to actual past trends. It’s like someone with bad eyesight took their glasses off, looked at 90s/00s magazines, and decided to start a trend of what poor imitations they could make out through the blur. And it’s not like everybody has access to good quality thrift stores, that’s only in certain places. In other parts of the world thrift stores only have fast fashion since that’s all there is. Not like you’ll be coming across a Mary Quant or something.

The sex stuff freaks me out sometimes, not because I’m a prude, but just because I’m shocked at how much those younger than me know about it, things I never knew at that age about kinks or whatever. I’m a 1988 baby and am in some discord severs with a wide age range of people from 18-late thirties, and the people around 18-20 will talk about sex and kink like it’s nothing. I don’t even think I was particularly sheltered with sex, my first time was at 17, but it’s more the pornified aspect that weirds me out. I really think kids are way too exposed to that stuff now and it’s one reason I fear ever having children myself. It seems impossible to keep them from seeing violent porn (whether real or through things like hentai, etc) unless you just keep them locked in a box or something. I feel like it’s messed with the self esteem of younger women and it makes me sad. I get hopeful when I see zoomer women standing up against it though.

Ayrt, I sometimes feel like the amount of sexualization of women there is combined with violent porn being so accessible combined with how so many young men are getting radicalized either by incel or MRA or trans rhetoric is leading to some push back from girls and women who see it for what it is. I’m glad women like you exist. In the end all of this is just making us more into a consumable for men to enjoy and have free control over. I wish the narrative that sex work is empowering wasn’t pushed so hard. Part of that is definitely my generation’s doing too. I realize we very much played a hand in how things are now. It all just sucks and even when I have hope it can be fought against, I start getting depressed when I see things like the Roe v Wade overturn and how women are constantly being spoken over. No one gives a shit about us unless we have something to offer, usually with sex or labor. Sorry to get kind of radfem, shit makes me feel like a doomer above anything else.

>I've seen so many of them mentioning about how something out of kids' shows is so scary
I think it's less that they're geniunely scared of American cartoons for children, and more that they enjoy them but feel the need to justify themselves. "Ooh, this show isn't just a silly baby cartoons for babies! It's actually deep and scary and serious!! Even adults could watch Steven Universe and Voltron and be amazed by the story-telling and scary plot twists, when you think about this scene and that scene's implications!!1!" I'm not sure that's exclusively a zoomer thing, because it reminds me of 90s American cartoons for kids that have dick jokes for the parents, and when the kids who are adults now rewatch them now they're surprised or even shocked by all the dick jokes they missed. I'm not sure how to describe it so I hope I did it well.

>I've seen a lot of Zoomers say that they're a big fan of a video game, but all they have done is watch livestreamer play through it.

I hate that shit. You know, this reminds me of people saying they're a fan of specific youtubers. I just don't get how you can become a fan of a youtuber, it's on the same level as someone telling me they're a fan of a blogger who just posts opinions of hobbies and new movies or video games. It's silly. This summer I went to a big anime con and since a lot of Japanese artists, musicians, writers, video game developers, etc. refused to come as guests because of covid they invited a shit ton of French youtubers instead and these guys were signing autographs for fans. I just couldn't even picture it, like what can you even get signed by a guy who badly films himself to argue that Goku is stronger than Naruto from his badly decorated bedroom? No, fuck off with that shit.

>But a huge difference I feel is that Millennials had a degree of naivete about this that Zoomers lack.

It all depends on whether they use the internet a lot and what they do online. As a late millennial, I saw some crazy shit online when I was a kid and then teenager, so I made sure to prevent my zoomer sister from seeing that shit and my other sisters and I taught her internet safety and etiquette because my boomer parents didn't know anything about it. I suspect that zoomers either have parents like mine but are too young to have received classes about this at school like I did when the internet and PCs at home weren't completely widespread yet, or they have gen X parents or early millennial parents who think the kids will pick that up themselves somehow. My sister didn't even know what a furry was until a few months ago and she's 18, and now she thinks they're just silly cosplayers, so I consider my job done. If my cousin didn't joke about furries being retarded to her she still wouldn't know.

tl;dr: bring back classes for kids in primary and middle school to teach them how to use the internet safely on computers and tablets/smartphones. And give feature phones to your kids for emergency calls instead of smartphones until they're old and mature enough to handle smartphones.

Some people seem to think that you can't be vegan if you buy second had fur and leather, some believe it's ethical to get them because they're good quality and you don't give money to companies, thus, you don't show you're part of the demand. I don't remember if I said that in this thread or not before but I'll say it again, companies rebranding their shitty plastic clothes and accessories as "vegan" as opposed to "fake leather/wool/fur" seemed to have succeeded in improving their shit products' reputation. Before, if you told the average person that a fake leather handbag was 100€ and a good deal they would have laughed at you, now if you say that a "vegan" leather handbag costs "only" 100€ you'll have some zoomers and late millennials shitting their pants and buying several of them.

- Zoomers are hypersexual. They don't seem to have actual relationships. It's just sort of a string of hookups where both sides don't know what they're doing. They'll literally hook up with each other because they sent Snapchat nudes to each other and liked the look of it. Or because they "share kinks". Creepy fucks.
- They lack sincerity. Everything is "cringe". Anything romantic or heartwarming or loving is "cringe". Irony is the cloak they use to avoid being labeled as "cringe", because they fear being called out for being anything other than posturing at ironic indifference. It's obviously bullshit because the mildest racist joke will get them into a catatonic screaming fit resemblant of a toddler.

It's targeted at the older man but there are younger women who think they are hot shit and better than older women when they date old scrotes. There are plenty of younger women who are smart enough and have enough self respect not to date old scrotes. The only time it becomes bad or traumatizing for them is when they age out.

I can kinda understand feeling 16 year olds are clueless and naive but this idea we should treat a 20 year old who shits on older women with a 30+ year old like a baby when she hits 25+ and realizes youth isn't eternal is perplexing to me. My suspicion is a lot of farmers did shady shit when they were younger they're ashamed of with older men. Probably chanscrotes too. So it's easier for them to pretend they had no agency?

I'm just going by threads on /g/ about ex boyfriends, abusive relationships, sexual experiences etc. A lot of farmers started having sex early, met men online for sex, were promiscuous, dated 4chan moids when they were in their teens etc. And that's not even talking about the kink threads…

Lots of girls start having sex early. Lots of girls are sexually abused as children and young teens. Lots of girls are preyed upon in their formative years and aren’t given the resources or care needed to mend what this does to them. You sound like a scrote. I stand up for young girls because I know what they go through and how they deal with extreme sexualization from a young age just for being girls, not because I feel defensive of your retarded half-baked strawman. Men are so bad at masking online even when they try so hard to sound like women.

Yeah. I'll bet you "know what they went through".

I'm still not going to blanket defend all 18 year old girls with older men though just because you want me to treat them like literal toddlers. I had a difficult childhood too and yet by the time I was 18 I had a pretty good idea that scrotes on 4chan kink threads twice my age weren't good news. I'm sorry this came harder to you but I've met enough younger women who are awful people that I'm not going to defend them. And you can call me a man all you want, out there in the real world the overwhelming majority of other, non internet brained women, agree with me and not you.

Good for you anon, but your personal experience doesn't mean everything. You don't have to have been raised in a bad environment to be a target of predatory men.
It's really telling that people will hear of teenage girls being in relationships with grown men and immediately jump to insulting the teenager, and even insulting the ones who realized it was wrong once they got older. While teenagers not taking warnings about older men is frustrating, a lot of you clearly don't realize that all of that behavior is because of men. Blaming teenagers instead of men is what pedophilic and predatory scrotes want. It's not acceptable to call a 17 year old a slut for being with an older man just because she's a zoomer, especially with the sexual liberation/hypersexual shit that's been happening.

Nta. Our age of consent is 15. It leads to very weird situaitions, for example pedofile having a kid with a 16yearold being on tv and it's legal. He was hated though as he should. But it also leads to 14 and 13 yearolds lying about their age to people above 15 so they can get sex and it's a problem. They are innicitaing the conversations and then 17yearold who wanted to sleep with a legal 15yearold goes to trial for being a pedofile. I understand that there are lot of young people that get used by older scrotes but there absolutely are weird and honestly scary teenagers out there that know what they are doing is wrong. 15 is hammered into our heads and they still don't want to wait. I can't be sympathetic to these teenagers because they are shitty people. One person i know especially lied about her age then and she still lies about everything 10 years later. Once i was sympathetic and felt sorry for her just to find out she spread rumors that i fucked the whole town the next day.
