Gen Z truly lacks critical thinking and is purely black and white especially when it comes to what they think is "politics." I know every generation is guilty of this but it's especially strong in Gen Z.
Maybe I'm biased but millennials and xoomers don't have the specific sort of wording that Gen Z does. It's just the sort of typing that is a dead giveaway they're a pretentious, insecure asshole behind their screen.

they have new slang and different cadence and I'm not a part of it, I hate children for being young when I'm not young anymore, they should have stopped making new people after my generation, culture should not shift per generation, we should all always be the same as my generation, trends should not ebb and flow over time, everyone before me was wrong and the ones after me are dumb, boooo zoomers, booooooo

Why do zoomers go to a thrift shop, buy up old abercrombie clothes, and then resell them on depop for like $100+??? Genuinely one of the weirdest things I've seen zoomers do and so many of them do it kek. Also this one personally pisses me off, buying up old Juicy Couture purses to resell them for over $300 even though the purse is dirty as fuck and falling apart. Any zoomers wanna explain to me why you guys do this? Those bags used to be resold for $50 at most before 2020.

No. 1406947

Social media puts pressure on people to act a certain way to get acceptance. It's why words are so important to zoomers, they're what make a post; more than audience or circumstance. Zoomers who aren't on social media don't act like they're being watched all the time.Some zoomers grew up with social media since they were 10. It's ingrained in their brain now and a part of their subconscious. Teenagers and children growing up having social media will have detrimental effects for generations to come.

Some zoomers are in their early 20s, so they would’ve seen some teenagers or even their siblings walking around wearing Abercrombie and similar clothing in y2k.

I do have hope though, since quitting socials for about 2 years I feel more sane, and I have a few friends who also quit entirely.

Really, with zoomers it feels like a hivemind. Their opinions change all the time (for example, saying “amab/afab” used to be acceptable to them, but now you can’t use it anymore because it’s “transphobic”), and if you’re not keeping up with what’s the latest correct thinking, you’re the most horrible person to exist. It really is black and white. If you don’t support all the “right” things, you’re a nazi or a terf. Conform or be cancelled.

I hate zoomers too, their fakeness personally affects me. I was a preteen during the time when anime/comics/videogames was shifting from ''that thing weird people like'' to becoming cool and i suffered the most for it, people that used to bully me in school have tiktoks making anime dances now. People that used to make fun of me for reading comics in school now are the biggest Marvel shills thanks to Disney adapting comics for mainstream audiences.

If anything I feel like the most vocal people on this thread should be other zoomers, we're forced to live/interact with each other on a daily basis.

I don't hate zoomers per se but I really hate how coddled most of them are. not to sound like one of those boomers who are like "oh you kids have it so easy these days, I had to walk up hill in the snow for 5 miles every morning just to go to school blah blah blah" but I'm a millennial and growing up I was constantly presented with a "tough shit" attitude about literally everything. like when I was 11 and was taking tae kwon do lessons they'd push me so hard that I would feel like I was dying, I would be almost vomiting and on the verge of tears the teachers would just keep implying I was lazy etc. meanwhile my zoomer coworker who always talks about her "bestie" says he can't touch microfiber because he doesn't like the texture (the way she described this made it sound like he had some kind of serious disability). like man if I admitted something like that to anyone when I was younger I probably would have been laughed into outer space. not to mention pronoun pins and shit like that.

The insanity is real.

I get the impression that zoomers are really attached to their youth. Mainly because they adopted pedopandering anime into their culture and the fact they use their youth to sneer at millennials.

They are. They have "minor" in their bios (like are you 10, or are you 17?) and cling to that identity for as long as they can, desperately using it as an uno reverse card for whenever they get called out for any shitty behaviour.

same and i just fit into the category of zoomer. maybe it's because of my country. but when i was learning ballet, the teachers would just grab our legs and force them into splits until we screamed and cried. we were what like 5-8 years old. my parents made me eat things i was allergic to untill my teen years because they thought i was only being picky. now a zoomer sees a video about autism and assumes they have it because it's the new quirky thing, along with adhd, and exaggerate everything in their life to fit a brand new box. zoomers can't just exist and deal with their shit on their own, they somehow have to make it into a personality trait to experience anything, everything is a core and vibe.

That's the sad part of zoomies to me, I was in high school 13 years ago and time flies. Like if 2016 or whatever felt like a moment ago to you, that feeling is only going to accelerate… you'll be like wtf 2030 is around the corner. You have to look forward to life and not despair that your teens are behind you. Personally they were my saddest years. No respect, no money, immature and just terribly insecure. I think of aging as a new season of life now, with some things much easier and new challenges arising. For me personally one example of that is I have much more creature comforts now and can afford things I only dreamt of before, and I was a hopeless NEET at 20.

I also think because zoomies are such an "aesthetic" based culture, they perceive aging way too sensitively… some really cannot grasp that yes you can still look hot even if you look older than 25.

Plus I think dating is already a cesspool with millennials… I can't imagine how Gen z males are towards women irl, especially with the accessibility of manosphere content to make them combative and miserable.

As if being a lesbian zoomer is any easier, with having no lesbian spaces anymore.

>>1407870
It's not just because of being younger, though that's a large part of it. It can be the difference between having access to the internet as a teen vs preteen or even earlier and how you grew up. Things move on the internet so fast that as an elder zoomer I already get treated as obsolete and out of touch for having different meme culture and sense of humor. I feel less difference between milennials who are 2 or 3ish years older than me, than zoomers 1 year younger than me, if that makes sense.

This. Not a tradthot but it seems like every alpha kid has been either born to parents that are way too old and parents who aren't financially stable nor in stable relationships, especially with the normalization of large age gaps and scrotes getting freshly 18 yr olds pregnant and having kids with a ton of issues. These kids are either going to grow up with fucked up views on relationships or have to take care of their geriatric parents when they're supposed to be focused on college. Instead of college funds they'll have to work to pay for their dad's retirement home.

It's such a stupid defense mechanism kek but I also blame older generations, usually control freak parents, for infantizing them as well.

Growing up in the 90s I remember the boomer thing of parents/teachers trying to raise you with tough love was still very much a thing. If you had some sort of mild learning/mental/developmental disability it was still a time where they tried to train you out of it via hard work. I saw it happening to friends of mine who looking back had good reasons for their difficulties. Its just weird how we flipped from being too harsh to too soft in no time.

My dad did that too and I'm a zoomer. Constantly yelling and screaming how I'm going to have to be a prostitute because of being slow at math. I think the being too soft thing was only applied to people born in the 2000's or later in specific cultures. Even my inhaler was regularly confiscated by PE teachers, asthma was seen as just being a weak crybaby. If anyone ever found out you had trouble with anything, they decided to be harsher on you than to those who could hide their problems better. Including retarded shit like making left handed people do everything right handed, which only would cause more problems and learning disabilities, which you'd also then get shit for.

They're also projecting the fact that everyone previously was brainwashed into thinking if they aren't genetically perfect there's something wrong with them and they aren't worthy enough for relationships and families, they just carried it generation and generation. I'm slightly mute and have trouble speaking due to lung issues so my boyfriend usually translates for me when we go out but when we first started dating his family was against me because "I have problems and wouldn't be a good mother because of the genes I'll pass" but they deny their own mental health issues among the family because they know they'd be hypocrites by admitting mental issues but expecting genetic perfection of anyone else

You're allowed to listen to good music at any age, unless you mean contemporary music; in that case, just do not listen to the radio.

Anyway, reading this thread and the criticisms of zoomers, it's clear that a lot of zoomer behavior is inorganic and just conditioning from older people/social media/corpos/social engineering, etc. I think zoomers would be normal without social media. I really think that's the crux of everything going wrong with younger people.

>it's clear that a lot of zoomer behavior is inorganic and just conditioning from older people/social media/corpos/social engineering


i 100% agree, zoomers are way too influenced by older people (hence the constant reboots) and have no confidence in their ability to create their own artistic movements/scenes so they just rehash old shit or go for easy corporate garbage.

No. 1408018

>>1408013
I think the influence you're thinking of is also due to social media. Zoomers can't really create anything yet, at least not most zoomers since the oldest zoomers are 25(?), media aimed towards zoomers are still being made by millennials. I do think more zoomers should be getting into actually creating music and being in bands. I know a few people who always talk about being in a band and making music and they never do anything.
I wonder if zoomer literature, and I mean literature not shitty fanfic and Y/A shit, will be written in a nihilistic way, or with a certain malaise and misery.

Every subculture wasn't completely standalone and original, but was built on top of prior ones and evolved over time. The difference now is that the aesthetic has been completely removed from the music. It used to be something that accompanied the music and how you identified others who liked the same things you do. You knew what to expect when trying to find other punks, emos, goths, whatever. Now your average alt looking egirl or eboy probably doesn't even listen to any music which would be considered alternative. Everything is separated, so you don't really have organic movements or scenes anymore.

>I know a few people who always talk about being in a band and making music and they never do anything.
Being in a band is lots of drama, but also it has sort of become obsolete. The popular thing is the one man/woman band, where you just produce everything yourself and upload it online. Nobody does shows anymore and a lot of the places where you could even start out doing shows have gone bankrupt and disappeared.

That's not the kind of drama I'm referring to. Any mixed gender band basically ends up with one of the scrotes trying to fuck one of the women, whether either is in a relationship or not. I could've gone on tour and actually make it if I didn't have a problem dealing with the scrotes, instead of having to get into a boring soul-sucking field. Then there's also arguing about when to practice, everyone now having jobs, responsibilities and never having the time to come together, living further away etc. Having to find a place to practice, the more instruments the more room you need etc. It becomes a lot easier to do it alone in your room, than to find a place where you can actually jam, especially in this economy. Having a garage is a luxury. Then there's also the issue of >>1408205 what this nonna talks about. Kinda missed the boat by this point and there's no way to make it anymore unless there's nepotism involved. It would be nice to have the ideal band and we all live close together and have the room to practice and can actually get gigs like before, but I don't see that happening.

To me hiding weaknesses, trying to overcome issues and weak points, adoring strength and all that was always an inherently human trait. I wouldn't say it's bad showing it but they did a 180° turn and call it good now. Everybody competes in the victim olympics, everybody feels proud being a victim, being incapable, being mentally ill, they brag with traumas I don't even believe they have and they start fighting over who is the biggest, most oppressed victim.

We need to bring back the days where bands get famous by going to small festivals, word of mouth, and then getting discovered.

7ish years ago you could still pull some local strings and work your way up. Like try to get on a local radio show, do local shows, then a local festival, eventually a small continent tour, then go to a different continent etc. Communities were tight knit enough that you had a chance for word of mouth to still get your foot in the door. Even YouTube was viable, because you could put your kinda cringe video clip which you just filmed in some random warehouse on there and still get thousands of views. Now you just get drowned out by the amount of content and the pandemic has killed the small places you could get gigs at before. No battle of the bands to get your name out. It's not like you got really "discovered", eventually fan pressure just gets enough that it becomes worth it for a label to pick you up. I'm not sure whether we can go back since like you said, they can also make money with the nepo kids. I don't think there's going to be much good gen z music which will actually be known of, we have no motivation and the ones who do stay obscure due to aforementioned reasons.

it's the fault of the listeners/consumers, if people listen to corporate garbage like doja cat and other tiktok shilled "pop stars", then they will invest money in that direction. it's up to the listeners to make an effort to discover new bands and not just listen to old records if they want those days to come back. also like >>1408274 said, the sheer amount of content online drowns out most cool acts, we have to find a way to do this shit irl or through alternative networks online because social media is not the answer.

my disappointment with the younger zoomers was when anime was becoming popular they still only watched the most popular, newest shows. while i eagerly recommended older non-coomer anime they were "wtf uhm ok that's like so old" or "ooh i should watch it" but then never finding the time. and modern anime is harmful in that it reflects coomerish porn beauty standards, infantilizes and stereotypes female characters and is usually harem or shounenshit with barely any depth. at least some of them like nana.

when I was using Tumblr in early high school (2012-2014) gender was definitely discussed in the same way you'd discuss fandom stuff. it's been really weird seeing the same stuff I saw on Tumblr back then now being at the forefront of a social justice movement. I genuinely thought this stuff would die out around 2015/2016 when it became popular to make fun of "cringe" stuff on websites like Reddit (CringeAnarchy/TumblrInAction), but I guess not. I think the spread of all this shit to Twitter really accelerated it because Tumblr had a much more specific userbase than Twitter (and now all those 2015/16 "making fun of cringe" stuff is now seen as cringe too).

The thing that is disappointing now is that there are still smaller events and gigs like that happening, but zoomers as a whole aren't passionate enough about anything in general to keep them afloat. Like what was discussed before, everything is about aesthetics and whatever "core" is trending. The only way that anyone in this age group has gotten to the position of keeping a small venue running is with rich parents, but since most are so coddled they can't keep anything going and would rather give up when the opportunities have already been handed to them. And of course it's never been easy, but I have personally seen so many zoomers fucking ignore every piece of help that's been given to them that allows them to start being passionate about something. I've seen whole groups of people pitch in money to keep venues alive, and instead it's all been wasted on personal items because they can't manage anything for shit and have absolutely no social skills. They will ghost you instead of trying to work out an agreement on anything. Then if it's not run by zoomers, it's run by older adults who couldn't care less about anything as long as they're making their money, and of course nobody wants to put the time and effort into making anything work, they'd rather give up after a few months so nothing ever sticks. There will be kids who have tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment and are too scared to leave their town to play a gig anyways. I've known people who have had their parents buy them a fucking van to tour and a garage to practice in but they've never even driven outside of their town even though they are in their early twenties. And good luck finding anyone who doesn't just want to copy aesthetics of genres and actually stay committed to making music together. I am just really sick of people giving up so easily on everything. Something that I've noticed too is that putting in effort into anything is deemed as cringe, but after all the time spent wearing their costumes of Kurt Cobain they could have been building their own identity and practicing together even just for the fun of it. It's really isolating, and of course it gets worse when you're a woman since you're always going to be seen as the potential fuck. Then another thing is I think they just like the idea of being in a band and glorify it like any other aesthetic. The main thing is no longer about music, but about getting any bit of attention and getting high then posting about it on social media. I wish it wasn't this way and I hope I will find genuine people who really want to make art together for fun and have a close friend group instead of whatever is happening now. I've been put off from going to anything local now because of the narcissistic attitude that most have. I'm sure it's not the case everywhere and it's not like such things haven't happened in previous generations but the spirit just doesn't seem to be there in the same way it used to be. I really thing social media killed us. Nothing is done as a hobby unless it's for attention in general. It's like everyone is a zombie walking around for a dopamine rush and if they don't get it instantly, then forget about it. I agree that there needs to be some sort of way to spread things around by word of mouth again without too much social media, it's just finding enough people to make it happen is hard especially when they are so quick to quit. Sorry this is so long and I probably sound like an arrogant boomer but I really can't stand how much things have changed in so little time.

tangentially related to the "core" or "-goth" thing…it's annoying as an oldfag when a semi underground style movement becomes ripped off and sold by corporations…for example picrel, there's been a quiet movement for years of sustainable garment crafters who sew with scraps, upcycle, use old fabric from other textiles, etc in a sustainability effort and desire to evade trends and fast fashion. usually the garments are charmingly shabby, patchwork, etc. and now retailers like urban outfitters are mass producing the shein quality version of the style to zoomers who then turn it into a "core" on tiktok and now you're involuntarily lumped in with them. this cycle happens with a lot of lesser known "styles" and usually the originators went thru a period of being made fun of/negative attention until all of a sudden its cool and now people compliment you. i went thru years of being called grandma, librarian, babushka, other backhanded descriptions by people who still wore jorts and Doc 1460s for wearing long skirts, baggy sweaters, satin and lace, nightgown, whatever. and now it's called "whimsigoth" ?? (barf) and is trending on tiktok and Instagram. same shit with "fairycore" aka millenials who grew up loving Amy Brown fairies and emilie autumn types and sewed dresses out of old doilies…the charm is extinguished every time this happens. the styles rise and burn out faster and faster and people will now always associate you with some bygone "core"…

slightly ot, but I worked at Urban Outfitters for a couple of years and can confirm the quality of in-house brands is mostly horrible. especially Out From Under, their lounge/undies brand. then there was one pair of pants I recall very well. every pair on the rack had a busted zipper. a girl came into the fitting room to try them on and asked if we had any with an intact zipper in the back or if she should order them online, and I quietly told her that if every other pair on the rack had a busted zipper I couldn't recommend buying them at all. they'd all be shit quality.

You're so spot on. I don't even know why anyone older than 99/98 is considered a zoomer officially. Everyone born in the 90s grew up on millenial, gen x, and boomer pop culture since well….that was all we had. The internet wasn't mainstream until the early or mid 2010s when smartphones took hold of the world. If you were online before this, it was considered very nerdy and weird like there was something wrong with you. I agree that there's a huge difference between a 25 year old zoomer and even a 21 year old one, let alone teenagers. They're not really relatable to each other especially in such a historical time where technology and globalization evolved heavily and quickly.

I would say this is rather specific, but the Gen Z obsession with believing and supporting liars. And not just falling for their lies, but it's seen as this act of radical kindness or whatever to support someone's delusions even if they are a self-admitted liar, even if there's proof they are lying, even if it's just so damn obvious they are lying, it's seen as this damaging thing to call someone out on being a liar about their identity or whatever. Guess what? People fucking lie, they cheat, and that's just human nature. People have bat intentions and we should be allowed to openly point it out.

Take for example, people demanding you use the preferred pronouns of pedos and predators and even people who are open about their identity being a fetish or a grift to prey on women. When you point that out, even in the most non-combative way, people accuse you of being "transphobic". Or another example, where people say it's "ableist" to call people out on faking disabilities or disorders. Yes, it's rude to just accuse anyone and everyone of faking, but them claiming that we should believe even admitted fakers and people who are proven liars just because it's ableist not to? Sorry, but what part about not allowing nondisabled people to bully disabled people in their own spaces is ableist? You see it a lot from self-diagnosed autists, who are just doing it as a fetish or to be quirky or to excuse their narc behavior.

I guess it kinda irks me in particular, but it's just so idiotic that they think this idea is not only acceptable, but should be the norm. They're openly and knowingly defending liars, predators and bullies just so they can virtue signal. The zoomer obsession with their backwards and extreme morality culture that just ends up silencing minorities and servicing predators, bullies, and men is insane and I can't wait until it finally blows over and we can just laugh at it.

Another one would be the fixation on using tone tags, if you don't know what those are, it's the /srs /s /j /nm, etc. You often see them on twitter or whatever and they're seen as being inclusive to autistic people when they obviously don't really do anything. I think it's kinda stupid for me to be mad about this because it's not really harming me as long as they're not demanding I use tone tags, which, thankfully, they do not. But I just hate the kinda condescending and robotic feel it has, like it takes out whatever personality they have and just replaces it with this robotic copypasta bs. If I need to clarify my tone over text, and sometimes I do, I say "this is a legitimate question btw" or, "I'm not upset with you" because it feels so much more respectful towards the other person you are talking to.

Not to be nitpicky but if gen Z starts at 1996 then only the very oldest zoomers are 26. The youngest are still finishing high school. But I honestly think the only nonas mistakenly complaining about gen alpha in this thread are zoomers and millennial moms.
There was a very similar phenomenon when "90s kid" was the more popular term for millennial (when old millennials entered their 20s), except gen z wasn't a popular term yet. Now that the whole millennial generation is in-or-around their 30s the cultural differences between someone born in 1982 and someone born in 1992 are not nearly as noticeable.

Yep, I was an emo kid too, actually a scene kid. Feels weird that younger gen z is trying to replicate it while still keeping their instagram makeup. I've also been seeing a lot of "I wasn't old enough to be a 2014 tumblr teen" memes and I just can't relate. Pretty crazy that people who were 2011 tumblr teens are getting lumped in as a generation with kids who are saying they weren't old enough. People who are in their early to mid 20s right now should have their own short span of generation. I've heard of us being called zillenials. I also feel like I'm not young enough to get most things going on right now. Pinterest becoming the app for 13 year old aesthetic core girls or whatever when Pinterest used to be the ultimate grandma app still baffles me. Anime was also definitely not popular or cool and would get you hardcore bullied when I was in high school.

Actually I think the internet specifically has the opposite effect in a lot of ways. For example with the 90s kid thing, a lot of millennials who were born in the 90s and couldn't possibly remember much more than NYE99 "remembered" the 90s through internet memes and TV re-runs. Maybe that's because "90s kid" became a cool identity you could easily claim and use for relating to other kids?
Anyway what I see is less "rapid changes in internet culture -> smaller generational culture time-spans" and more "the internet never forgets -> longer generational culture time-spans." Certain elements of culture, like fashion trends and slang and internet memes, are changing more rapidly than ever (or at least it feels that way) but those don't define generations. If anything, living in a world where trends change this fast is something we can use to put the oldest and youngest zoomers together into a single cultural unit.

This video and the comments annoyed me so much and just doesn't make any sense. They're complaining about living through all the difficulties of life and scary events of the last 20 years. So, then, didn't everyone on earth experience this? And at older ages/actually alive when they would be more emotionally impacted by them, and for longer? I know millennials not shutting up about 9/11 is a fucking meme, but seeing people in the comments saying "I was traumatized by learning about 9/11 in school" pissed me off. We watched it live on TV and some of us wondered if our family members were dead or alive. We wondered for days/weeks afterwards if another attack was coming. I know this is Oppression Olympics talk, but it's so annoying. Was it disturbing to learn about WWII and the Holocaust? Yes. Did it traumatize me? No.

It's dumb because it re-inforces a dichotomy between those who have color and those who "don't", even though pale skin is also a skin color.

Whenever I see someone use the words "poc" or "woc" it makes me roll my eyes back into my head because it's such a regressive and stupid way of saying "minority", which is what people used to say before twitter.

idk why it's seen as an American thing when every German or Dutch boomer complains about muh auslander and allochtonen whenever they see anyone who isn't pale. Racism wasn't invented by muricans. The trying to be positive about it is only in reaction to the unhinged racism of the early 2000's. Same thing with muh polarization, when there are only far right parties on the extremist side. The troon shit comes from neolibs and socdems. Actual 'extremist' leftist parties aren't even allowed thanks to RAF. The ones screeching about how anti racism reinforces racism are too young to remember that every southern european with a tan got also blamed for terrorism and assassinations, because racists don't differentiate between arab and Greek.

What does bother me is Americans lumping everyone together especially when they share nothing in common.

Millennials wanna act like their cringe wasn't trackable as if they didn't start the trend of living chronically online.it was absolutely worse back then. Gen z is trying too hard to normalize mental illness for sure but millennials treated depression like some dark edgy cool things that no one else understands, there was even competitions on who is a "real" cutter.

Nah. Zoomers are enabling a lot of the tranny shit. When the trans issues came up with millennials, a lot of the rhetoric pushed was “they’re just like the rest of LGB, they were born this way! they’re a female brain trapped in a man’s body!”. A lot of the support was to humanize them, “let them pee”, etc. The degeneracy and what we know them to be, AGPs, wasn't really talked about yet. There was also still a distinction between “sex and gender”, where there was still acknowledgement of sex, but a decision to choose gender (MTF or FTM). Someone could still have “genital preferences” and not be too horribly criticized.
A lot of gen x supporters were fag hags and didn’t realize that TIMS weren’t “just gay men”. They didn’t realize how many are transbians. More gen x is getting peaked with recent events though (like trannies joining womens sports, or Dylan speaking for Ulta).
The goalposts keep moving and a lot of Zoomers have been supportive of it. Most of the extreme shit (calling lesbians “non-men loving non-men”, saying tranwahmen are “no different than cis women”, “dick can be female and vagina can be male”, calling any lesbian that doesn’t want to touch “girldick” a terf) is being spewed by naive zoomers that refuse to grasp how predatory TIMS are. A lot of female Zoomers ARE trannies (TIFS and Enbies), because it’s “what’s in” now. Zoomers are perpetuating it.

Idk if this is zoomer specific, but it seems much higher than when millennials did it. 18 year old zoomers seem to be obsessed with chasing after people in their fucking 30s and will never listen when they get told it's predatory on the other side. Knew an 18 year old who said she would happily love to date a 30 year old and she yelled at me and said really passive aggressively "well SORRY you went through such bad experiences" when I said that no normal 30 year old is going to go after an 18 year old without predatory/power imbalance intentions.

If i say anything remotely radfem people say to me in a really condescending and spiteful tone “sorry about your dad” or “sorry about your bad experiences” and then don’t believe me when I tell them actually he’s not so bad and I’ve been lucky with my experiences due to being sheltered by family and privilege. I think it’s designed to guilt me into shutting up because they have no way to disprove what I’m saying. My world view isn’t entirely shaped by my own personal experiences and I’m sure neither is yours.

Zoomers are max at age 26. This is a pretty ridiculous take considering that, most of the trans influencers ARE millennials, most teachers are millennials or gen xers who are shilling this to zoomers. A lot of the BS articles, thinkpieces, etc. written on gender/trans shit that actually influences society at large on not just a zoomer level IS millennials and gen x. They influence both spheres, the younger generation and older generation. It's just weird how you can blame a bunch of high schoolers for something that's clearly a continuation of something started from before them. The weird forced kids being trans are from millennials and gen x parents.

nta but I'd argue that someone like Caitlyn Jenner or Laverne Cox has had more of an impact on this topic and they both aren't zoomers. While Dylan and Nikita are scum, I don't think they are as well-known. Cox literally played a troon in a woman's prison ffs. And that was back in what, 2013? A lot of the people who write these storylines and support gender shit in academia are often older as well. GenX and Millenials created this climate, Zoomers happily endorse it. It's a shitty situation either way.

I agree with your sentiment but idk about who has more impact, I think no one really listened to the two you listed, they were just celebrities and mostly seen as gays but zoomers form parasocial relationships with TikTok zoomer troons and they get invited to represent actual women to podcasts and sports. I agree that it’s been created by the last gen and zoomer gen embraced it. Now troon stuff is to zoomers what emo and goth was to millennials but it’s more harmful than scene kids were. Millennials had a problem with rape jokes, antiSJW fedora commentators, SJWs and edgy shit, zoomers have troons, gender ideology, cancel culture and communism kek

Except most people over 18 aren’t “a bunch of high schoolers”? Kek. You’re pulling a lot out of your ass. Yeah there’s some millenials that defend the tranny stuff, but zoomers are just as much responsible for this madness. Even if millennials/gen x initially fought for more transgender acceptance, zoomers are happily listening to troons further demands and pushing it to the extremes. I believe Millienials and Gen X didn’t intend to create this aggressive rhetoric against lesbians and all of this misogyny (non-men, birth-giving people, etc) when they began supporting trans rights.

A 24 year old with a family has more in common with a 24 year old NEET than a 34 year old with or without a family.
Life stages are a thing people can have in common, but no one uses them to define generational groups because everybody moves through several of them.
Generational groups are better defined by things like major events and trends in parenting and education, because the things that happened in the world and the way your parents raised you will never change.

Yeah but 24 is vastly more similar to a 30 year old person than to a 18 yo. If you are friend with different age groups it’s very easy to see this. 18 year olds are kids, from 23 on the people finally grow a brain and it gets really hard to tell the ages apart, you can’t tell who’s 23 and who’s 33. Especially with moids because they start balding in early twenties and they talk exactly the same and about the same things as the older ones.

Nat but nah, a jobless student is not going to care about the same thing as a housewife with 2 children or a doctor even though they’re both 25.

Zoomies larping as 00's emos while being genderspecial blm lgbtbrap+ supporters is so funny to be. The original cringelords of the 00's were super fucking edgy and there are several cases of these nutjobs ''joking'' about murdering someone then actually killing them. Zoomies would probably shit and piss their pants if they were to meet face to face with an emo teen from the 00's, the emos would probably call them faggots, drop the nword several times just because they think its funny, defend hitler and then show them their self harm scars then proceed to ask them if they ship ZaDr or ZaGr and stab them if they dont like the answer.

Their extreme laziness and constant moralfagging about people who have any amount of money more than them. The ones that unironically want to bring back communism baffle me truly.

It's hilarious seeing them cope about some random happy old person they decided to make their daily victim who worked their entire life to where they are now.
Sorry they won't give you their money and that you don't have any talents or are too lazy to do something with your life.

German here, it doesn't help that classifying people by "race" (as in, the word "race") is racist here. If anything you name the nationality (Iraqi, Italian etc.) or the ethnicity or region if you know that, but you cannot say race and the fucking skin color is such a dumb shit like to them there are only three people in this world, the whites, the black people and the Asians or something which erases all cultures and conflicts that shouldn't be allowed to be ignored.

There is no "white culture" as there is no "black culture" and I hate seeing this shit everywhere online. It's even worse when progressive people use it and see no issue with this. But they can probably not even name more than 10 countries so they start arguments about whether a Bosnian or Italian is "white" or not, whatever the fuck white even means to them.

That nonny didn't go into details, who knows–maybe she overstates the age gap contributing but adult grooming (like wtf it's a thing what are you guys on?) exists regardless with some unique signs involved - and can be worse depending on the individual and the abuser - and some nonnies are getting weirdly blamey about her experience, insulting her, etc, even though they don't know the full story.

I’m an old zoomer and I have a question: do zoomer children not actually go through a phase where they say purposefully offensive edgy shit to be funny, or are they lying about not going through such a phase? whenever people get cancelled for stuff they said as high schoolers I’ve seen other Gen Zs claim that they never went through an edgy phase of saying wildly offensive stuff. I was born in 1998 and I definitely went through this phase as I hung around boys who were heavily into video game culture. I really don’t believe that such wouldn’t exist in regards to preteen/teen boys and girls who hang around them, since video game culture is stronger than ever and this >>1415401 is like the 2022 equivalent of how my male “friends” at 14 would joke around but probably worse tbh.
So do edgy jokes and saying ignorant/offensive things still exist for kids? Because Gen Z wants us to think so but I don’t buy it as another Gen Z myself. It seems like they’re all pretending to be above it, I’ve heard that they probably have texts or private accounts where they behaved like the people they cancelled. I really cannot fathom how a 11-17 year old kid is so wise that they somehow have managed to avoid saying anything cancellable. Lord knows I would never have a job if they found my now deleted Facebook and dug through it to find me trying to be ~not like the other girls~ at 12 laughing along with shitty male “friends” misogynistic, racist, ableist, homophobic, twansphobic jokes. Most of the jokes back then do make me cringe but I will never feel bad for laughing at trannies so…

Thank god the cancel culture police excuses people who makes offenses as a child at the very least so it seems. Tbh a lot of children don't ever have the edgy phase no matter what era they are born into. I remember being uncomfortable about a lot of edgy humor when i was a child, i never really found vulgar humor funny in general, but i would never voice this or else i'd be considered sensitive. For reference i am a very old gen z or a young millennial depending on who you ask.

There's research on sexual grooming that involves looking at adults, though. If you genuinely believe "adult grooming" cheapens the concept of grooming, then say why because plenty of researchers and domestic abuse experts don't have the same opinion. After all, there can be huge power gaps in adult relationships. If one of the main parts of grooming isn't a huge power gap, especially one that was apparent early in the relationship and how it's leveraged to monopolize - usually in a coordinated way - the weaker partner over a long period of time, what is, then?

Isn't manipulating more open-ended? Someone can manipulate someone without necessarily abusing them or grooming them, even if it's really shitty and often is used in abuse. And someone can abuse someone without manipulating them, or grooming them. Some abusers are just chimps, some are more calculated, but even a retard with 0 manipulation skills can groom a child.
Sorry, not really a good definition but I wouldn't use the three terms interchangeably. Only a small # of abuse situations follow the usual signs of grooming.

Honestly I feel like a lot of early-mid twenties zoomers cling on being minors-by-proxy because they desperately want to be under the “wall” of 25 because that’s what they made fun of and bullied millennials for the longest time. They’re now ~old~ by their own standards so they desperately try to argue that early and late twenties are totally different age groups, only they are young and have no responsibility for their actions when compared to the absolutely geriatric 25-30 age group. Hah I bet they’re gonna say the same thing when they hit 25-30 in two years, they’re gonna be totally different from the 30-35 grandmas.

>>1416289
Just fyi the brain is already finished with the very minor development it undergoes in your twenties by 23 to 25. It’s hardly comparable to the development during puberty though, people misinterpret this. Your brain undergoes changes comparable to the frontal lobe development during your twenties through your whole life, or even bigger changes. Zoomers in their almost mid twenties are proper adults, not still developing kids.

Grooming is typically used for children/teens. I'm sure some people use it differently but I think the baseline is adults who should be teaching/raising the kid doing so for their own malicious purposes, typically sexual. Either way it's a long term plan of continued manipulation for future purposes, not just a one time thing. Grooming is always bad.
Manipulation is just getting someone to do what you want (often making them think it was their own idea), meaning a child crying on purpose to get another lollipop manipulated their parent, but they weren't malicious in doing so. Can be bad, can be not bad. Can happen once or several times.

I think when it comes to severely mentally ill people or people with mental disabilities being manipulated into doing something it could also be called grooming, such as the whole trans movement. Your average trans person wasn't groomed, but the clearly autistic ones were.

Caping this much for a moid who couldn't go for a woman his age is embarrassing. A 30 year old isn't in the same stage of life as a 24 year old and can absolutely have a lot of power over her. So much libfem logic here or either 18 year olds who are too young to understand that 30 and 24 are worlds apart so they just victim blame the woman. I don't understand why act like 24 is some all knowing wise age when people in their 20s are dumb as fuck and learning a lot of things for the first time.

Now that the average age for having your first child in many countries is often above 30, a 24yo and a 30yo aren't even in different stages of their life. They both finished university, got a job, got an apartment and are maybe engaged. Maybe start building a house. Physically they're at the same level, they're both likely to no longer party as much as a teen and the rest ist down to personal preferences and hobbies.

I just saw this old post >>202276 with Jenny Nicholson's brother, it annoyed me, and I didn't want to litter that thread, this one seems more fitting since the video is about zoomers and comparison of generations.
It just reminded me of something I was recently thinking about.
First of all, god it irks me he doesn't even specify that he talks about generations in the USA. Or am I just being boring and it's something that's implied and everyone is supposed to understand that? It's just funny to hear about "innocent and carefree" 90s when I, as a slav, am used to completely different epithets. Didn't it cross his mind that people from other countries might've had another experience?
Secondly, I "love" the incredible depth of this analysis that basically implies cartoons and other media is the only thing that affects a person growing up. Oh so you watched your silly Angry Beavers, huh… what could you possibly know about trauma? I watched Gravity Falls and read creepypastas, I'm ridden with mental illnesses and existential dread! "Most challenging childhood in the history" my ass.
And ok, even if the media were the only thing that matters. It's so unbelievably shallow. Every millennial I know was allowed to watch pretty much anything as a child, not only something meant for children. But even the things meant for children, either from the 90s or previous decades (btw another astonishing revelation: people can consume older media as well. and one more: millennials were born not only in 90s but in 80s, too), weren't as carefree as he describes. And that is what I was thinking about. I might be wrong about it, I don't follow newer children's media closely, but from what I saw, that's what seems to me as something really straightforward and simple, not to say primitive, in terms of emotions (both demonstrated and induced), while many things I remember from childhood were genuinely depressing and anxiety-inducing at times (which is not necessarry to make something "complex" or even good, I mentioned it to dispute the "carefree" bullshit). I could've been too sensitive, but even Toy Story and Rugrats (that he shows there in the vid btw) could make me feel uncomfortable, kek. Not to mention freaking All Dogs Go to Heaven or Brave Little Toaster or Once Upon a Forest (I don't even remember this one that good but I memorized it specifically as depressing lol). And it's just a few examples off the top of my head. I also feel like every animated tv show would criticize society or some cultural phenomena etc. in that way or another, while showing the psychology of human behavior and relationships, and darker side of things. Like wowie, even then people could criticize capitalism and consoomerism, who would've thought. As to movies, family movies in particular, there were also just too many, and I'm pretty sure I've already forgot some good examples I'd recalled earlier but, for example, The Witches was fucking scary to me, The Neverending Story wasn't that lighthearted in overall, and the same can be told about pretty much any movie about animals although it might be subjective (Beethoven made me anxious kek). And, as I said earlier, it wasn't even limited to family-friendly media, and there was other stuff as well, like games, music even, anything.
I feel like older media was more soulful actually, and it made you feel many things at a time. Most of it didn't treat you like a mindless child. Do I sound like a grandma already? It just seems to me newer stuff lacks nuance and depth tbh. Correct me if I'm wrong.

completely unrelated to dating or grooming and i’m pretty sure the female brain stops developing around early 20s so no, you can’t be groomed by a 30 year old when you’re 24. but having a family, managing employees/a business, and basically just life are things people in their 30s-40s usually have much more experience with than someone in their 20s.

most women who have kids do so in their late 20s, and most upper management types are older. you also can’t have 10+ years work experience at 24.

on average a 34 year old knows more about jobs, relationships, friendships, education, etc than a 24 year old. unless that 34 year old has been a friendless unemployed single neet for 10 years. you could replace 24 and 34 with any ages, honestly, it’s not just a zoomer v millennial thing.

They're more passive aggressive about their behaviors now. What you're describing with non-zoomers was more directly aggressive. Now it's seriously emulating behaviors of stuff like the mean girls movie (both boys and girls doing it equally), and bad teen movies of the 90s and early 2000s. It's why people mistakenly say all the time, oh children are so much nicer now. No they're still the garbage they used to be the behavior set has just changed, and older generations don't know how to see it. Easiest way to describe it, is zoomer 1 fake compliments zoomer 2, zoomer 2 calls them out on it, and then zoomer 1 starts crying about how they didn't mean it like that why does everyone hate them. Young millennials and older zoomers do this too, but the children are obviously the worst for it.

The issue with an age gap of more than a few years is that the older partner has a cognitive advantage that the younger person usually won't even perceive att.. til they themselves are that older age and are able to reflect on it. That's the trap. It relies on that level of naivety still being present in young adults. Other factors play into some women being more vulnerable to it too. LC is full of posts from nonnies who've been there and learnt this the hard way.

Plenty of women will date a 30 something year old man while they're in their twenties but then when they themselves reach their thirties they'd never dream of dating a younger man with the exact same age gap.

People who date younger are ultimately taking advantage of that blind spot the younger person has.. while they still have it. They want you to feel like you're not far behind them. That you're mature for your age and that magically makes you equals. Adults fall for that trap all the time. It's still an issue for women in their early to mid twenties. They live and learn.

It took me a while to finish that video because his tranny voice was so grating. As for his statement about trauma not existing until after 9/11 occurred, it is an indictment of America's educational system. During the 90s in the States there were a slew of terrorist attacks (one of which was the Oklahoma City Bombing), the Rodney King Riots, Columbine, Waco, the crack epidemic, the start of the heroin epidemic, etc. Every generation during every decade in every part of the world had to go through some horrible bullshit of varying degrees because that's just life, unfortunately. Just because they didn't put it into cartoons for children meant to sell toys and display advertisements doesn't mean it wasn't happening and didn't affect the way people developed. The reason zoomers are so "traumatized" is due to so many of them not understanding how to have basic human interactions and developing narcissism from growing up on the internet in the social media age, not from any event or media they read/watched.

Yeah I know, I'm an older zoomer and I remember that it were mostly millennials into bdsm libfem shit and every other zoomer was watching cringe compilations about it and thought sex work and libfem shit is cringe. The demographic for 50 shades was mostly gen x women. I sincerely doubt it was a 15 year old zoomer who created the kink test.

>Many of them are pro simply because they are retarded and think supporting womens personal choice = inherently right decision to make
You're not going to get any honest answers from zoomers anymore, because everyone is aware you get cancelled if you give a different opinion and could get fired or kicked out of college, but back when I was 15/16 I was openly anti sex work and anti trans shit and it wasn't that difficult to find other zoomers who agreed with me.

nta but actually my theory for pro-sex culture that zoomers have is they're trying to recreate how sexed up the 90s and 00s celebtities were. hollywood was all sex tapes porn stars and slutty anachans. though the average person just gawked at all the drama. now they can live that life themselves on tiktok. even though many of them seem sex repulsed. they do online 'sex work' safely behind the screen.

Ok you’re allowed to think that it was older millennials too I really don’t care, but I’m talking about the zoomers who participate in the gross bdsm obsession and constantly post about it. Which is still actively happening and has been for the last decade, which you can see for yourself on TikTok. If you want a place to complain about millennials make a millennial thread. Also, I’m an anti-sex work zoomer who’s honest about it when someone asks me because who in their right mind is gonna fire an employee over thinking that it’s gross to sell your pussy for cash?

ya of course, but it makes sense why they're so obsessed with it. anyway zoomers suck because they're regurgitating the internet, which has had a short lifetime. that's why they have this obsession with things only one or two generations away from them. they live on the internet and only time period chronicled on the internet was the 00s, you have to actually research to find other things. and older zoomers have boomers for parents, so it's not like millenials are to blame.

A place where prostitution is legal, plus sex work also includes call centers and shit like that, it's not just "sell your pussy for cash". A place where sex is considered a right and where disability allowance can be spent on prostitutes. The funny thing is that I can find zoomers who will hear my fairly nuanced opinion out, even without them being from religious areas. Meanwhile millennials and genx are the first to pearl clutch, because they are centrist neoliberal and will always defend the status quo.
>>1422227
Wouldn't it be that zoomers have genx for parents? Plus most of the content for older zoomers at the time we went online was made by millennials. It was the buzzfeed libfem vs misogynist nu-atheist YouTube era. If we would've been bombarded with radfem gen xers or boomers, probably would've turned out different, no?

We're not the ones making the algorithm or running companies, having high positions within companies, being in PR positions, writing articles in media which get pushed more than your average blogpost. Like others have said, all zoomers do is regurgitate things from previous generations. There is nothing new that is being done or created, it's just repeating what is shoved in front of everyone ad nauseam. None of the trends complained about are new or something that actually started with zoomers. Zoomers are largely mindless consumers saying yes and amen to whatever is put in front of them (which is often influenced and created, originally invented etc. by non-zoomers), but actually influencing anything or changing anything isn't happening.

i saw you in the vent thread also. you honestly need to calm down. maybe you should figure out that the average woman (who works a job, who has friends who perhaps do not share the same ideological perspective as her) doesn't want to incur the drama and vitriol that comes with "stirring the pot". and litigiousness against troons/troon-enablers isn't exactly a method that most women who are just trying to get by want to employ. stop punching down. i'd say that i'm pretty outspoken myself, but the risks that i expose myself to by being so are not risks that most women would feel comfortable taking (and i wouldn't want my friends to take them either, if i knew that it would negatively affect their livelihood/reputation in a critical way). and also, we're on an anonymous imageboard. you've got no idea about the circumstances of the women posting here.

If you're a zoomer constantly complaining about other zoomers on TikTok, you can just quit social media like the rest of the sane ones already have. There's legit criticisms to be had, but there's no point when everyone thinks that whatever happens on TikTok represents all zoomers instead of the companies who pay big bucks for visibility.

How is that different than before? As a boomer I'd say there's less bullying than before. I base this off the interactions I've had with zoomers at workplace, specifically, they expect asspats constantly and complain if you don't praise them when they do an average job. That was literally the complaint about the manager from multiple zoomies. That he gave no positive feedback, to what were very average workers.

i agree with you. Atleast in the past most fandoms were niche, obscure and made up by weirdos for weirdos and atleast the weirdos had the benefits of having privacy, now you have no privacy and could get posted to tiktok just for looking weird or ugly with thousands ofc comments making fun of you, and now modern fandoms are filled with normies who thrive on drama, fighting and bullying.

I always tried to get into fandoms and engage in communities but i could never fit in no matter what i did and i had no friends including internet friends until i found lolcow. I feel like nowadays there is a lot of normies in these spaces and trend hoppers, people are are actually outcasts funnily enough tend to be exiled from these environments because they don't fit the vibe. I'd also imagine having radfem views would also isolate you from a lot of other zoomers. There really is nowhere for actually outcasts to go anymore. Thinking that they would all go off and become trannies is just a gross generalisation because it suggests most of them are interested in assimilating as opposed to finding people similar to themselves.

I know earbuds still exist but 90% of what I see when I walk into a target is all in ear, so I just opt for over the ear ones now even though they're big and clunky.

Menopause means that there will be less of a hormonal incentive for competition. We're not the only species which lives beyond menopause, orcas, narwhals and others do too.

but most pregnancies result in miscarriages and most women don't even realize they were pregnant, because it happened so early that it looks like they just got their period.

I’m seriously nipping this derail here. I’ve reported multiple posts that have been made dragging out this argument, but my opinion does not need to be that important to all of you. Fuck whoever felt the need to drag a conversation that was in leftcows over here, I don’t at all understand being dogpiled on just for saying that adults having consensual sex should practice it safely and that sexual abuse victims deserve on demand abortion. I haven’t said anything extreme or harmful, and I also have no control over what other people decide to do with their own bodies.

What fucking "traces of assault" you could possibly have when you admitted to willingly whoring out to old men? DNA traces occur from any barebacking, the only way they can "tell from your insides" is if you were penetrated with force strong enough to cause a rupture + signs of being beaten and/or fighting back. Anything else is not distinguishable from normal Christian sex for the purpose of reproduction.

You were given an abortion because of a no questions asked policy, and believed because minors can't legally consent, not because your "insides" showed them anything besides standard signs of intercourse and a blob of his stale nut.

Of course you didn't you whore, very few rape victims do. The "physical evidence" is literally just evidence that there was intercourse, the rape kit doesn't show whether it was consensual or not. That's established through other evidence and circumstances (you being a minor).

2. Subjecting you to the same scrutiny you're advocating for is uwu creepy and evil tee-hee

It is disturbing to me that they will never know existence before the internet and what people's energy was like before social media crushed it. Everything from younger generations feels suffocated and devoid of the warm free energy I remember before social media. Even in the 00's that energy was on its way out, and MySpace was kind of the beginning of it. The start of this squeezing the life out of innocence. People were already starting to seem like they had the freedom and easy going naivete choked out of them.

What took its place was a creeping desperation for validation, phonyness, points and it's still like that to this day

I think a problem is that even if you're not terminally online, the rest is still and everyone just loves taking sneaky pics or putting you in the background of TikToks. So your cringe or whatever is still at risk of being broadcasted. Even when I was in secondary school, before TikTok but when Vine was a thing, people took videos of me dancing with a girl at a kind of prom because cringe alt lesbian. They shared it in groupchats and I still count as a zoomer. That kind of shit really ruined everything for me and forced me into the closet of shame and self awareness.

Fellow millennial here and these photos hit me like a freight train with nostalgia. It's true that there was just as much "cringe" back in our time but we had the benefit of not recording ourselves and uploading it to social media. Some did but it was not as widespread as it is now.
And the emos lol I remember crushing one 2 at my school back in 2006/2007and wanting to date one but I never did lol. But this also reminds me of how I used ro listen Underoath, Saosin, The Used, and Hawthorne Heights (Ohio is for lovers!). I think the thing I miss most about 2000s was it was the last decade where alternative people actually listened to alt music. Whenever I click on alt zoomers, they all play the same annoying rap music and I'm just left wondering to myself "Do kids even listen to rock anymore?" Makes me feel old kek.

>>1443773
>I think a problem is that even if you're not terminally online, the rest is still

I do understand this. Whenever I go to my family gatherings, I notice that all my younger cousins who are zoomers are on their phones and ipads nonstop and I imagine myself if I was their age and not hooked on my phone, how bored I would be hanging out with people like this. This is why I'm so glad I was a teen from 2005-2009 before social media completely took over. Yes we had MySpace, YouTube, and later FaceBook but we weren't on these things constantly like how people are today with TikTok, Instagram, and new age YouTube.

This is something that really surprised me as a millennial how apparently you can't say "retarded" or "nigga". I guess people like us are products of our time because I remember when these terms weren't offensive at all. I mean I know that "nigga" was somewhat controversial back in the 2000s but most of the kids in my school called each other "nigga" a lot, it was used as a "slang" word for friend/"homie".

I remember when I was at one of my old jobs around 2015, I worked with 2 zoomers and I called a situation "Retarded" and my one coworker was like "Dude you can't say that word!" and the other one gave me the silent treatment for a few days, I was pretty irked because that was the first time I learned about how these words are forbidden apparently lol.

I can't speak for all retail places but I worked at a sister store of tjmaxx and trust me they do not give a single shit. At worst they'll put on the board what the most shoplifted items are and keep it at that. Plenty of the shoplifting posters ARE retail employees which is the funniest part

What makes you say this? From what I've seen its just people trying to be relatable since most people have stole something from stores at this point. It sucks but it's reality when vast majority of jobs barely cover rent and it would be nice to have winter clothes or underwear that's not torn up

How? You can get fired for any reason in Burgerland, and even sometimes for no specified reason, so I assume stealing is big enough reason already. It's bad enough that stealing from stores is what isn't illegal where I am in Burgerhole, because the cops have other things to deal with. I imagine if the employees were stealing from stores they'd be fired. I guess it depends how desperate the business is. TJmaxx is pretty big so maybe that's why.

They'd have to prove it's you who stole items first and foremost in order to fire you for a malicious claim, if you get fired because you were wrongly accused of stealing that's an easy defamation of character lawsuit right then and there. Also when stealing is high the last thing stores want to do is start firing people because there's less employees which means less people to watch merchandise and customers. It doesn't work how you think it does, stores aren't going to see some dumbass teen girls stealing perfume and lip gloss and start pulling folks to the back and writing pink slips

Although this will probably trigger specific anons but I do notice zoomers have poor money management skills even when they're in the position where they make reasonable money. I knew people at my old fast food job in my hometown who would make the same as me (9-17 an hour) and would go on vacations across the state like every other month and have the nerve to complain about how they're not making enough, then when I suggested renting out a place for 900 monthly (low in area) they said it was too much but have no problem dropping that much or even more for a trip to California

Trying to talk to my family was nonsense, they'd look at the TV during ads when I would try to start a conversation.
I'm certain Gen X parents with zoomer kids created what we see now, the zoomers are just doing what their parents were doing but on a touchscreen now. I can go hours without looking at my phone or accidentally leave my phone at home if I'm out for an hour or so. With zoomers, it's like it needs to be instant, just like the TV is with gen xers.

I've just noticed a few zoomers who have an endless supply of dollskill/fast fashion posting from what looks to be master sized bedrooms with these kind of admissions. At least where I grew up it was the kids who were left to their own devices, who couldn't afford decent clothing or the latest phone who stole and bragged about it publicly (not on the internet to incriminate themselves permanently) because it was "bad ass" in those circles. Now it's trendy for well presented kids to air their dirty laundry on tiktok too maybe to see relatable to those people? I'm not saying affluent or people with a decent standard of living don't steal, it was just percieved as shameful for them to do so having been afforded more than the average poorfag in life so they generally kept it to themselves. Whatever your take on the morality of stealing is it's weird as fuck to incriminate yourself so blatantly on social media like it's worth the fleeting ass pats.

the girls are obviously just young women having fun and trying to look cute so whatever, but what rubs me the wrong way is how disgustingly misogynistic this subculture actually was. this just gets glossed over in the zoomers eternal quest for the next copy pasted -core from bygone eras. the obsession with picture perfect copying other generations of style is also kind of sad. will we ever get genuinely new style movements or will we always be stuck in this wheel of copying whats already been done over and over again…

Hair metal was for the ugly men that couldn’t make it in the punk / glam rock scenes - which is saying a lot. The groups were always misogynistic and ugly but now they’re fat, old, ugly, misogynistic, and can barely perform. Same goes for their old men fans.

yeah this is the main difference, it's that since fast fashion has gotten so advanced and responsive to consumer demand it will be able to provide what was previously highly specialized/niche and more expensive clothing to a much broader audience that can easily then treat these clothing items more as pieces of costumes that they're putting together rather than outfits. It all just feels so much more larpy and less creative I guess. I don't like the shift from creating your own unique look to focusing on fitting in within a certain archetype. I can definitely see the appeal of this, especially if you want to vicariously relive old music scenes, but at the end of the day there is an undeniable hollowness to it.

it's mainly an online thing, or i hope it is, but zoomers have this tendency of heavily romanticising experiences and feelings that are authentic and cannot be manufactured. things like being a pre-2010s kid going out and having fun with your friends, running around, hanging out. i'm not sure i can articulate it very well at the moment, but it really does come off like they're just too online. there are many beautiful small things (memories, experiences, places, etc) in life that we only cherish years later, that we can only see as so lovely when we no longer have them. but to obsess over them, to aestheticise them for everyone to see, almost cheapens the beauty.
it sort of ties in to the aesthetics/"-cores" they create. with reading, going to libraries, drinking teas/coffees, having an interest in post-renaissance art, these are regular for a lot of people, but online it must be made appealing and turned into "dark academia". the same with liking rural life and "cottagecore". these are very basic things that many people like, yet online they become extended and turned into an entire subculture of sorts that impressionable people then feel expected to fit into. it sucks all of the original experience, the uniqueness of one's reasons for liking these things, away and prioritises the aesthetic nature of it all. i really feel as though zoomers need to spend more time reading insightful books, and without documenting it online too.

You just described something really poignant that happened to me, nonnie. I'm a zoomer, and up until I was like 13, I had only read juvenile books and comics. When I started reading classics and more serious books, I had quite a shock realizing that the little insights I had were a "thing", and that my feelings, and experiences that I thought were too specific, were actually a quite universal thing, is just that nobody talks about it explicitly. I think it helped me apreciate life a bit more, I also think it made me understand myself more. Zoomers really should read more, specially old books.
btw sorry for the blogpost

I wish zoomer could understand that once you've hit 20 and you arent mentally handicapped, you can't be "groomed".
You can manipulated, sure, but grooming refers to children and people Who can't consent due to mental limitations. A toxic relationship in between two consenting adults is not "grooming" FFS.

Not a zoomer but I always liked aspects of dark academia, kinda helped me not to lose my mind going through med school, sometimes it feels nice to romanticise your experiences and reframe feeling like a sorry loser who has to stay home or libraries studying till late at night into being a tortured academic or whatever.

I think it's definitely due to online culture making people feel like they're missing out if they're not connected to the internet, then when they go outside and do things unrelated to the internet, they feel above others, because all they've surrounded themselves with are people who put their every waking moment online and anything they do in the outside world is done to present a story to your peers online. Which most of it are just consumer products, mundane things, and venting about everyday atressors. Being outside and touching grass is now cottagecore. Going to a library or being in higher education is now dark academia. Taking interest in stuffed animals is now kidcore. All of these "core" incorporate things that don't require an internet connection, which is why it fascinates so many people, because they're so connected and anything outside of that is odd to them.

Shein spits out current trend clothes like fucking crazy, I guess because an AI designs the clothes (?). It is just fast fashion. Many people would rather buy some shitty flammable trendy clothes they only wear once than the more expensive real deal product that would last for a longer time. Everything is made out of polyester, you can't iron any of that shit, it all falls apart after one wash. It's wasteful and not just that but apparently Shein clothing has like 3x the acceptable amount of lead in their clothing because it's just made THAT fast and cheap. That's why it sucks so bad.

No. 1465007

>>1465000
It's a massive Chinese fast-fashion store. It's incredibly popular because they observe trends and manifacture 100s of new items per day. I believe heavy influencer marketing is why it became so successful. The items are cheap crap so people were making ads showing off how they spent e.g. $100 and got 10 clothing items, or more. People shop there a lot because they carry just about any -core you can think of. They've had all sort of controversies, toxic substances in materials, stolen artwork. No1cares because consoom

No. 1465010

I might not be the most educated person on the matter, I only visited their website like twice, but I don't belive it is only tiktok and core people, I say this because Shein invests massively on their advertising, their ads almost always look really nice (tho I keep getting coomerish looking ads on pinterest) and they always have the look dujour but I have also seen more "normal" looks from lack of better word. My point being is that regular non tiktok addicts probably also buy from it a lot because it is fucking everywhere and it's cheap I guess.

>>1465006
It kinda sounds like Yesstyle which was semi popular 5 years ago but I barely hear anyone talking about it now. Yesstyle either resold from Taobao stores or they bootlegged clothes from different Taobao stores. Noone could really give a concrete answer where they got their clothes from. Some of the brands they had didn't exist outside of their website but if you did a reverse image search of their pictures you would find Taobao stores so it was most likely bootleg.

I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again. As someone who previously lived on over 100 acres in Canada it is not easy work. We would have to chop down trees and clear the woods of the rotten ones that fall over with the wind. The neighbors aren’t always friendly and keep to themselves, you have to plow your road or you’re trapped. My aunt also lived on a farm and she died tragically when the garage door fell on her head. My uncle had to get a lawn chair and wait 4 hours for emergency to arrive next to his decapitated wife. Don’t get me wrong farm life can be really peaceful in the spring/summer and fall but it’s also really inconvenient to live rural. Especially if you don’t know what you’re doing and have no experience with diy, machinery and handiwork. Cottagecore is a fantasy and would be very hard for someone to move from the city without any prior knowledge.

Well said, anon, and it definitely shows what leads to aestheticizing among zoomers in the first place. Young people, especially teens, can't go out and live on a farm, and a lot of them can't even drive themselves out to a nice hiking spot or lake or reserve, or have one in walking distance. So they just spend what little money they have on plastic ivy, mushroom figurines, and flowy dresses, because the only thing they can control is their aesthetic. Same with not being able to afford to go to college and study Classical languages, can't drive to the library, and don't have the attention span to read, etc., hence Dark Academia. I empathize with teens who don't have a lot of freedom or money, but focusing on having new experiences within their actual sphere of control would definitely be more beneficial than focusing so much on the superficial appearance of everything and its documentation on social media.

Zoomers are so weird and pathetic because they they lack any sense of identity outside of their new concept of gender identity. Its wild to me that they are the only generation that copies styles and pop culture from their parents and considers it their own. Like if you were born in 2003 and your mom had you in her 20's you are now wearing the flare pants and platform boots and sparkly butterfly shirts that she and her peers were wearing when you were born. Millennials and gens prior didn't do this, they had their own youth styles and subcultures that sprang up organically when all zoomers do is obsess with gender and TikTok. Imagine if the entirety of millennial culture was based of myspace? It was just a place to express yourself at the time but it wasn't the apex of the zeitgeist of that era. Zoomers are doomeders

>>1465976
millenials can be pretty cringe, im sure many were captivated by the 80s and 90s, but that was mainly because we were so close to that era and felt nostalgia for it in a rapidly changing culture. i definitely do not remember anyone dressing in 80s replica fashion. incorporating a few pieces of nostalgic inspiration into the modern style of the time maybe. shutter shades, ugly sweaters, neon for example.. whereas picrel is one of many zoomers dressing straight out of fucking babysitters club….its uncanny how well they replicate and rip off.

It's weirding me out too. Like the fashion is pretty much what it was, and the music fits, but it still looks like a costume. I get the same feeling from kids wearing scene or emo stuff now. Everything has to be an aesthetic, they can't just wear what they find comfy or appealing.

Agreed, so much fashion nowadays looks so restrictive. I saw a zoomer woman working at a shop I visited and she had the e-girl look. She had on a polyester wig in braids and with a beanie, layers of ripped clothes, the checkered skirt with safety pins, fishnets, the heavy makeup, and chunky boots. All I could think of was wondering how comfortable that was to be even working in. I wouldn't be able to do most of the tasks throughout the day because I'd be so worried of the potential of the wig/beanie slipping or makeup rubbing off or tripping over my boots or making sure the skirt doesn't rise up or having to pull down a layer of clothes that rode up. It's so much work. I'd just want to go to work to make my money and do my tasks and go home stress free.

I think the worst thing I hate about zoomers is how superficial and mean they are. It's all about selling them a 'vibe' and if you don't pass their little list they pretty much ghost you or pretend you don't exist, all while talking shit in their little private twitter or discord group. It feels impossible to form authentic connections anymore, it feels like a job interview where you have to say the same tired phrases or memes to them to be accepted, until those are rapidly cycled out for some new stupid thing.

Zoomers rip on millennials for being 'stuck in the past' but honestly, who the fuck would want to subject themselves to this willingly? I regret keeping up with the times because it feels pointless. Zoomers are still too young and stupid to understand that all the interaction they're performing is superficial and parasocial, and when they have to go out into the real world to work they're going to realize that they don't have the time to make real connections anymore and have wasted their lives on this. I'd feel sorry for them but they're hateful little shits and hella self interested, so they're just going to make it everyone else's problem.

Also I feel like I'm going crazy but I don't miss the old internet even if I also don't like the new one. Millennials were also pretty mean and the kind of humor of the old web was just as fucked up, I remember witch hunts where people would just put entire content creators on blast because their comics/art/whatever was too 'animu'. I will say that it was more honest though, Millennials didn't come after people because of some political agenda, they just flat out hated your ass and found you cringe.

This kek. I use to work in management and so many fucking zoomers will come and complain and try to get people FIRED because "I don't like their vibes". Unfortunately some places will fire people over stupid shit like that. Like I don't fucking care if Emily from accounting gives you bad vibes if she's doing her fucking job and not starting any drama or shit. Weirdly enough the people they label as "bad vibes" are typically the ones who start less drama than anyone else

To add to this, the "gut feeling" zoomies are the fucking worse too since they usually have no reason to have a distaste towards someone or something (or if they do they know the reason is stupid so like to pretend they have a 6th sense instead of just admitting they don't like that person for some dumbass reason) but then also expect everyone to drop whatever they're doing or whoever because of their so-called gut as if they're some other worldly spirit that God is talking to.

It sucks most for autists because they never give you a clear reason on why they dislike you and what you can do to fix it. Back in the day if someone hated you because of how you dressed, music you listened to, your voice, etc they would straight up tell you lol, and then you can go from there. Now with the "bad vibes" crowd you're taking a shot in the dark on how to fit in and not upset people around you. I also hate that "bad vibes" is such a blanket statement and it weirdly implies that there's seriously wrong with them, like they're a murderer or something

lol yeah suuure it's millenials who are stuck in the past. meanwhile zoomers are literally scrambling to bring back every last subculture of the past that they had no part in whatsoever, no matter how cringe. like they're literally trying to bring back "mall goth", wearing dated tripp parachute pants and acting like listening to Slipknot and Korn and Static X is kool. mall goths dont even exist anymore and havent for years. the mall is dead and tripp pants are cringe. they can't just invent a better subculture they have to try to bring the numetal days back? unironic juggalocore when?

She went to high school, where she should've had access to computers and we weren't told she was any sort of diagnosed disabled. I even gave her how-to videos to learn how to do this simple crap that she should've learned in elementary school, but she was too lazy and acted helpless and wanted someone to guide her all the time. It was annoying and retarded. When she was given new tasks, she always whined about "not feeling prepared enough yet", despite being given lots of training.

In my experience, Zoomers comes in three main flavours.

>1. The Brave New World/pan trans demographic, who are Z's mascots, and who you will most frequently see described in marketing guidance about Z.

This is the group that the establishment wants Z as a whole to be and look like, and therefore also tries to make sure are the most visible as representative of Z. They are completely fluid; they don't identify according to any set gender or sexual orientation. This group are political Huxleyites; they will support virtually any level of authoritarianism, because all they really care about is making sure that no one is allowed to tell them that they can't or shouldn't be what they are.

>2Vaguely sex-negative/celibate governmental apologists

This group to some extent developed as a reaction to the above. They still primarily care about collective approval, however, which is why they are also very pro-authoritarian.

>3Neo-Victorian/50s nostalgic preppers/homesteaders/off-gridders.

This group are the most heteronormative of the three, and represent incremental survival of both the Right and the ideology of rugged individualism which the CRT/successor ideology demographic are trying to destroy. They are the Z sub-group that I like the most, and which I think offers the best hope for humanity's future; and they also therefore the group which the establishment likes the least.

Late but they do that because they find those women attractive, they hate them for it. They know she'd never want them, but she has power over their dicks.

Average straight men will call beautiful straight woman ugly/barely average online very often. It's a common phenomenon and there was even an incel subreddit for looks rating where ugly men got 6-7/10 whereas gorgeous women barely got 5/10. They're tricking themselves into thinking that the gorgeous women are matches for them and that telling her she's ugly will make her more likely to settle for ugly men like themselves. This of course doesn't work irl because beautiful women get attention a ton irl but online, somehow most attention beautiful girls get is negative.

They are the first generation of men who are experiencing a society where they aren’t needed by women and they don’t know how to handle it. Instead of working on their looks and personality and go for women in their league they’d rather just blame women for why they are unhappy. Also zoomer men are jealous of women but don’t want to admit it because it will make them seem like fags, they want to wear pretty clothes and get easy access to simps and compliments.
