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.

No. 1406587

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

No. 1407203

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 had social media since I was 5 (my mother made my accounts and gave me free reign). It really does rot your brain, and you put it perfectly as in acting as though you're being watched all the time. 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. The state of this generation is depressing though and I can see it in my little sister too, I'm really worried for generations to come. Sage for blog.

No. 1407631

It also makes you feel like you're obligated to be part of, to control in some conforming way, too many people. A number that you wouldn't be able to comprehend in real life. It's overwhelming to your brain, especially if you spend time doomscrolling through hundreds of people's opinions and internalised it.

I feel the same way, everything is in black and white and in absolutes. What happened to free thinking?

No. 1407677

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.
I used to think this site was filled with failed zoomes but i think it's mostly millenials. Still, feels nice there is another nonna like me out there.

No. 1407700

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.

I'm a zoomer and I'm enraged at how there's no zoomer lesbian/female bisexual spaces. At least real ones…either they have to be "transbian" inclusive or full of nonbinaries dating nonbinaries because apparently lesbian means "non man loving non man" now and not woman loving woman. The insanity is real.

No. 1407780

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. If millennials are in an aging crisis I can’t imagine what it’s going to be like when zoomers start turning 30.

No. 1407781

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. TikTok kids will literally mock you for being an old age ugly hag when you're like…20.
I can't wait until they all turn into adults and actually have to face the consequences of their actions for once.

No. 1407782

I'm sorry for that anon. I'm bisexual too and I also struggle with finding spaces where I feel welcome. Lolcow is one of the only places I've found on the internet that welcomes fujos. Here and fujochan is where I feel safe.

No. 1407783

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.

zoomers can already be 26+ iirc, I think people forget that genz already starts at like 96 and the older ones can't relate to 99% of the shit nonnas are saying about zoomers. Not saying this to go all "not like the other zoomers", but there is a big difference between the cuspers who are closer to millennials, the ones in the middle and the ones closer to gen alpha. Especially with how fast trends change and the difference between growing up with the internet or not matters.

No. 1407863

As if being a lesbian zoomer is any easier, with having no lesbian spaces anymore. Plus age differences hit so fucking hard, even women just one or two years younger than me feels more like a decade difference. Everyone does feel more shallow and you get selected based on your aesthetic and whether you look nice on their instagram or tiktok.

No. 1407870

True. I hope as time passes on the "years blend together" like they say, since being younger makes slight age differences mean a lot, but by then we'll probably be going through a midlife crisis or something kek.

No. 1407879

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.

No. 1407950

Yes! I remember when I was in high school (mid 2000s) we all wanted people to think we were older. I remember wanting to look like Britney or Carmen Electra, kek. It’s so weird now seeing 17 year olds saying “I’m LITERALLY a CHIOLD!” and “I’m baby, uwu”

No. 1407951

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.

No. 1407953

It's such a stupid defense mechanism kek but I also blame older generations, usually control freak parents, for infantizing them as well. I know so many gen z adults who are given a long list of restrictions by their parents and even get tracked via phone, have their bank account purchases cons checked, etc well into their 20s. I can only imagine how the current teenagers are basically treated like overgrown retarded toddlers by their parents.

No. 1407964

I honestly can’t recall a single one of us actually wanting a trophy or ribbon just for participating. We all knew that was the “bad” award and it meant you hadn’t actually earned it. Yet boomers would hand them to us and go “LOOK! YOUR GENERATION EXPECTS TROPHIES FOR EVERYTHING
Boomers are so weird.

No. 1407970

Lol it was because they had to pay for us to be in sports and if we didn't win they still wanted a trophy "to show for it." Trophies are only ever given to children to make their parents happy. Children don't care about stuff like that unless they've been trained to believe winning is the only way they can get love.

No. 1407971

Yeah. I will never not hate boomers and gen x for literally blaming zoomers for how they raised
>Muh participation trophies
Who gave us those?
>Muh tablet/smart phone kids
From my experience it's usually parents who buy their kids the latest phone or whatever to flex, then encourage them to use it then wonder why they live online/get groomed
>Muh makeup/slutty clothes/fake hair, nails and push up bras at 12!!
Usually parents fault as well, children don't have money or cars to go buy those revealing clothing and +3 cups push up bras and thongs or expensive makeup.
>Muh anti social behavior
Well maybe dont villianize your kids for having sleep overs and act like them going down the street will result in them being brutally murdered

No. 1407977

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. Was there ever a good balance?

No. 1407986

You just gave me flashbacks to crying at the kitchen table while my dad screamed and yelled at me for having trouble with my math homework, kek

No. 1407989

even when they were harsh, they lacked care where it mattered. Many parents dont want to be uncomfortable or emotionally open to have difficult conversations, so their kids follow suit. You have to be both firm yet understanding

No. 1407996

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.

No. 1408000

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

Of course boomers don't apply this when they get dementia, Alzheimer's or PTSD (only for military men though! Not even for military women)

No. 1408004

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.

No. 1408013

i think that when people say this they mean that they want to be part of a 'scene'. sure you could just listen to older bands but humans are social creatures and want to be around other like-minded individuals, especially musicians and music fans.

>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

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.

No. 1408025

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.

No. 1408028

>I know a few people who always talk about being in a band and making music and they never do anything

I'd start a misandrist (ska) punk band if I could actually find other misandrist women who played instruments besides just guitar. Everyone just learns guitar because it's popular, I remember back in the day being the bassist in 4 bands at once, just because of how unpopular the instrument was. Never mind finding drummers.
Yeah a lot of people prefer that, but it's not that easy to start a band or keep it going. It's a shit ton of drama. The best is if you can have an all female one, but that is easier said than done.

disagree, even within electronic music there are lots of groups and duos, i'd prefer to be in a band because it's much easier to come up with good ideas when there's a pool of different ideas and perspectives to choose from, even if that entails a lot of bitching and fighting.

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.

Do any other zoomers hate how there's like no normies anymore and every zoomer is some form of "core" or aesthetic? Blog but I go on fragrantica and there's always some obvious zoomer who posts a thread like "What would she wear" followed by a bunch of "core" specific photos like why can't you just test perfumes yourself and come to your own conclusions rather than limiting yourself to a box of what you can/can't like. It almost feels like a psyop by men to make women constrain ourselves into boxes so that actual women fit their porn categories.

No. 1408232

I cannot relate to them either.
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.

To me it looks like a shitshow from kids that want to infantilize themselves and be treated as unstable snowflake toddlers by the rest of the world.

We need to bring back the days where bands get famous by going to small festivals, word of mouth, and then getting discovered. Now record labels and such don't even bother since they're sold some medicore shit by some rich person's kid and just edit and auto tune the shit out of it because they realized they can manufacture basically anything and people will buy it

No. 1408274

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.

No. 1408363

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.

I can't believe there are people on lolcow of all places who think that there was some sort of effort to push gender nonsense in the early-mid 2010s. If you spent any amount of time off of boomer internet back then, it would be clear to you that it was originally a bottom-up movement that built a lore upon relatively milquetoast concepts from freshman sociology courses and eventually spread them to intelligentsia via twitter, where they became more extreme. ffs half of the language used to talk about gender today was coined on tumblr and roleplaying forums and shit.

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).

No, I mean over women trying to define themselves by aesthetics or "core". I've seen girls trying to constrain their hobbies, routines, and mannerisms to fit certain aesthetics. It's insane.
Ideally, people should just try perfumes and see which ones they like–not overlook their own preferences because it doesn't fit their aesthetic.

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.

Is it correct saying that most tranny handmaidens are zoomers? I’ve noticed that it’s zoomer enbies/tifs that will cape hard for troons, far beyond the “TWAW” chant. They will make art, pick battles online for them, make ridiculous “all twanswahman are bootyful” posts, kiss their asses online and offline, etc.

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. I frequently watched garments be destroyed before they ever left the store.

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.

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.

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.

Honestly feels weird to have other zoomers just a couple years younger scream terf at you over it already, because they don't understand having grown up with it and the nostalgia.

I get the need for talking about racism in america, but the constant chanting of "we are different, they are different, we are NOT the same" is honestly hurting people more than helping the way it's done. It's like before if you were tan, you were just a tan person. But now you're an oppressed minority whose ethnicity has to be on full display at all times, and you and everyone else must see how different that is from others and that it makes you a constant victim. It's very othering and creates more segregation rather than less.

No. 1409843

It was almost as bad though. I'm at the very end of millenial / beginning of gen z and all the older cOol eDgY teens and young adults I followed were quite literally glamourizing self-harm and depression. The only difference now is social media is so big and purposely mind numbing that it affects people on an even greater scale and creates even more depression.

No. 1409847

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. Not only that, but it's an ineffective and confusing way to talk about ethnicity/skin color because a lot of people from "ethnic" countries have white skin, but there are also places where people of the same skin color genocide each other. 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.

Tbh this doesn't bother me that much but in all fairness I was bullied a lot for my skin and features and I'm also from a MENA country (still am) so I do relate and share experiences with other 'poc' around the world in a way the whole tumblr poc thing was very comforting years ago to me.
What does bother me is Americans lumping everyone together especially when they share nothing in common.

Lol absolutely disagree. I remember following myspace and Facebook pages with cringey poetry, quotes or whatever made in MS paint with some emo kid or black and white picture being posted regularly, especially in regards to romanticizing cutting. Hell don't you remember Ohio is for lovers? Or any other song about cutting or depression emo kids loved? 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. Millennials are just showing their memory loss because romanticization of mental illness was an extremely active and real thing of the 2000s

Millennial and gen x handmaidens are what allowed trans women to push through. You seriously think zoomers are the reason trans issues are so accepted now? Have you ever lived in a large city?

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.

You know when you put it like that I agree actually.

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.
Perhaps this is harsh but I have no sympathy for those retards.

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.

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.

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.

No. 1411341

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.

No. 1411350

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. They will have more in common and worry about similar things as a different age group that’s in a similar setting or life stage. That’s quite logical. If you’re around 18/19 or so I get why age seems more important to you than it actually is though.

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. Zoomers are unhinged but in a lame pathetic way where they break down and cry if someone says something mean, they would lose to the skinniest emo faggot of the 00's without even starting the fight.

for the last time, we're talking about how they think about things, not their day to day opinions. the stuff you're talking about is fringe anyway. plus you're wrong. a 30 year old and a 24 year old will raise their kids very differently from eachother because of how they grew up, which depends on age.

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.

Those are literally the racists that do it, "Ausländer" isn't even correct since most people they whine about have German IDs.

not any of those nonas but honestly at this point the topic is so deeply retarded because, like…ok. the older men are usually on a wildly different wavelength and are almost exclusively dating her because she's young. Then the topic always goes to the lib fem type fixation on the choice of the younger party to enter into the arrangement. For example, >>1415713 was judgmental. 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…

Tbh a lot of children don't ever have the edgy phase no matter what era they are born into.

No. 1416350

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?

No. 1416353

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.

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.

No. 1416423

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.

She never said she was a zoomer. She said when she was 24 when it happened which means she most likely isn't a zoomer. It doesn't even matter if her brain was finished developing or not considering this dude was out of her age range, period. Learn to read.

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.

I frequent a dressup game with a fairly huge child population and kids definitely do go through edgy phases, but they keep it in the dms.

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.

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.

Again, there's researchers and psychologists that have went into "adult grooming" or "sexual grooming" as it relates to adults. There's specific situations where an adult might be particularly vulnerable to someone that wants to trap, change, and monopolize someone; i.e., very mentally ill, autistic, etc. Is there some reason why "grooming" must be solely defined by whether or not someone takes advantage of whether or not someone's brain is still changing?

I feel like idiots have been doing this forever though? I’m an ancient millennial and I remember hearing these sort of comments when I was a teenager about anyone remotely older. This one woman I worked with was 25 or so and everyone thought she was a teenager just because she dressed trendy and had a bit of a babyface, a 25 year can’t look cute after all (kek). Even at the time I thought it was dumb but it seems normal for most youngins to think we’re relics because we’re like ~7 years older.

Nta but that's why you're calling it an age gap and not just a relationship. FFS some of you bitches are dumb. He clearly wanted that young fresh pussy instead of dating a 30 year old or someone in her late twenties. Man couldn't even go for a girl in her late mid twenties, just had to go lower.

No. 1417490

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.

Adult grooming would usually apply to someone who has a disability usually. As in someone with very low functioning autism, Down’s syndrome, or brain damage etc. Essentially when an adult has a condition resulting in a low iq that makes them childlike mentally. Grooming can apply in other situations too, but legally that’s the big one for ‘adult grooming’.

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.

But social media really will be all of our downfalls because now you have millennials going along with some of the dumb Zoomer shit because they’re terrified of growing up. It’s internet plus millennials that is the real villain in my eyes. We’re the first generation to grow up with it and the long term effects look bleak as hell.

>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.
Is it the fault of gen alpha and zoomers that there has been a constant barrage of bdsm shit online by boomers, gen x and millennials before any of them became of age?

No. 1422205

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.

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.
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.

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.

People on this thread need to stop hating on younger kids; it’s a sign that you’ve become your parents. But goddamit do I hate the smugness with which kids treat older people these days. You’ll get older, and it’ll happen faster than you think, and that “thing” you wait for thinking that will magically appear at adulthood and make you that one person - it won’t appear. You’ll be the person that you are now.

>the fixation on using tone tags
I haaate tone tags. I'm probably overreacting. It's hard to keep myself from mocking them when they're always attributed to sentences that do not need clarification… I got banned from a couple servers for saying stuff like "That sentence is clearly positive/negative, why did you add /pos? /neg?"
Kids are too sensitive online. I can't imagine they're like this in real life, trying to control everyone so they don't have a meltdown.

Do zoomers have outcasts like we did? I mean, now that that the line between real life and online is virtually non-existent, and the fact that many, if not all, "safe spaces" and hobbies are occupied by the cool kids and corporations looking to make bank off of formerly maligned hobbies, have the outcasts been folded in the monoculture or have they been cast away into dark corners or what?

Sometimes I wonder if boomers felt this kind of horror when millennials started in the work force. Even though we felt entitled and had ugly dangerhair most of us worked relatively hard.

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. In my boomer days you were happy if managers weren't fucking assholes. Nobody gives a shit about you zoomies, nobody gives a shit about anybody, suck it up.

she is a boomer anon, she is literally older than both gen x and millennials. Back in her day i bet she also complained about gen x and millennials when they used to be young kek.

yes but those outcasts usually go online to be coddled I.E gender special kids. They are still treated weirdly in real life.

No. 1427310

You're either early millennial or late gen x, no way you're an actual boomer.

I don't know, imageboards seem to have been dying a long drawn out death over a numbr of years. I'm almost certain 4chan is at least half bots and shills.

Mind expanding on that? I don't go out much so I don't know any zoomers besides some zoomer co-workers.

The comeback of big chunky headphones is so fucking funny to me. Back then we had to wear those because they were the only kind of headphones on the market at the time. You’re choosing to use shitty quality headphones for the aesthetic instead of just using modern day headphones that have way better sound quality

No. 1427322

yeah im a zoomer and i got bullied constantly at school and i still get bullied in uni now. i dont have online friends either its actually gotten much harder since normies started occupying spaces more often. and now on top of getting physically and verbally harrassed people record me being weird to share and laugh at. i mean its not a zoomer exclusive thing millennials have lived through the same its nothing new but now with tiktok views are so easy to get and so much more impactful because it gets around so quick and fast more than ever before with youtube/facebook etc. its really humiliating and like so many have mentioned in the last thread you cant even be seen genuinely having fun even as a normie in case somebody records and makes fun of you. everything is performative for this fear and reason, at least i think so. i wish i knew a different life kek but i'll see if there's a change in the future and i hope there is.

do you mean these? i think they look cool but they bleed music like crazy so i'd never get them. though i think sacrificing actual quality/comfort for an aesthetic is dumb in general

as someone who is between the cut-off millennial age and the zoomer age (old enough to be a millennial but also young enough to be a older-zoomer)
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.

So there is no place for new-gen weirdos to have their escapism, i feel sorry for you. Im glad i was around fandoms when they used to be obscure.

No. 1427354

My niece is 13 and according to my sister, she spends her lunches sitting alone. She's really witty, speaks only in irony, has dyed hair and dresses in goth-like baggy clothes so it's weird to me that she's an outcast with no friends. The only thing is that she's not allowed on social media. Is that really all it takes? Or just something more going on with her that I don't know?
Also she's petrified of being seen cringe so she avoids things like writing and drawing. I think that's really unfortunate especially when you're a preteen and no one cares in the long run

No. 1427355

I mean, outcasts have always existed and always will tbh

No. 1427356

yeah, its even worse because its different people every day, so they know they wont remember me, and treat me as such. or i get targeted and tormented by the same people moids and girls to the point where i have to hide and leave uni as fast as possible. and now we're all adults. the professors and staff are a lot less help than they were at any point of school because like you said its something implausible but it happens, and they only have so many hours of the day and so many students to deal with within those hours. i don't go to a uni with a dormitory btw my family and i are too poor and i am a diagnosed retard so its not like i would have been accepted anyway kek so its probably not like this everywhere. like i said if you're genuinely weird and offputting you're at risk of both in person torment and being recorded, there's so much pressure to be normal and if you aren't that's what you get.

No. 1427358

Come on anon, earbuds hurt my ears, those are way more comfortable to me. I don't use shitty ones though and modern headphones are poor quality too if they're cheap.

I am an old zoomer/young millennial and I have a similar experience to you. I was also kind of bullied in university too and tbh i kind of have people be very hostile towards me no matter where i go likely because of being ugly + weird. 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.

in earbuds are so fucking uncomfortable, it's not exactly a trend for a most people. Plus most of the headphones are expensive as fuck.

No. 1427368

tbh in universitys the professors are typically the ones doing the bullying. Im surprised students are bullying you.

but don't sororities require some kind of recruiting and application ? i remember seeing some weird entry requirements way back when i was still in high school where the "leaders" would purposely put the newbies into psychological torment in order to get it. there is just no way i could ever step foot near anywhere like that im very far from even normie adjacent so even if i had the confidence i could never in a million years be accepted into one. and besides im a thirdie so they dont exist here

No. 1427413

Not all. Are you in a small university or something because the even at my community college that was crawling with weird unwashed weebs, no one really got bullied.

No. 1427439

im not, i get its pretty unbelieavable but i go to one of if not the biggest public university in my city. like i said people dont care how they treat others they know they probably wont see again since the campus has so many students so they probably wont see them again. im just really ugly and weird, plus everyone's constantly looking for the next thing to make fun of and laugh at because theyre always on their toes about themselves being "individual" in just the right ways careful not to be cringe. things aren't like they used to be its really hard to be sincerely not normal or average and people still get a kick out of making fun of you. plus im a lit student so there isn't much stress to be had, really. my major is the one even the dumbest people ( like me ) who pick so as to escape unemployment because literally anyone goes and as such the meanest worst people enroll to pass the time

I like earbuds (right), but I hate in ear earbuds (left). Earbuds will hurt after a few hours of wear, but in ear earbuds are so insanely uncomfortable for me right off the bat. 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. I like having ANC without having something shoved into my ear.
