    HOLY SHIT are the humorless and aged butthurt about this trend. It's like the only form of "discrimination" they can't justify as free speech. :lol:

    For the record... There's old people, and then there's boomers. And old people hate the boomers just as much as the young people do. :async:

    I had to look it up. So ok boomer is the new whatever.

    Yay, we have evolution so to speak. I do hope the creator of this thread realizes eventually this will become like whatever and the memes before it, if it hasn't already.

    Insulting voters rarely makes them decide to vote for you.

    I'm going to have to look it up. I assume "baby boomer" but these days you never know. Well I'm off to google - unless that means something different now too. :unsure:

    I googled it - not a big deal apparently. I barely make it into the category anyway and don't follow most of the trends the younger people engage in.
    That said the two women and the cat eating at a table meme is comedy gold IMHO.

    Yet Republicans insult voters as a matter of routine. We're all godless commie perverts who hate America. That is when we're not triggered soy boy snowflake cucks. So what's with the double standard? :mystery:

    Does this thread actually have any relation to something that's going on in the real world?

    What even is this?

    He's just mad because boomers got us into the position we're in now, and they want to be compared to "the greatest generation," when they haven't earned that accolade. Instead, they're getting clapback from the current generations who will have to fix their fuckups, and this has shocked and appalled them. That this guy, and others like him, think the word "boomer" is the same as an epithet used against enslaved black people shows the entitlement mindset they have.

    That, and it's yet another example of white people not being able to wrap their heads around the idea there were ever any consequences of racism more serious than hurt feelings.

    Yeah, the fact that "we enslaved you and used words as weapons of oppression against you" and "you called us a name that means we're out of touch" are being conflated by them is exactly why people are calling them names that mean they're out of touch. You have to be on the dark side of Pluto to think those two statements are, in any way, comparable.

    It seems as if we're retrograding to a point where we don't speak, just grunt and gesture, and then those will be misinterpreted as well.

    I'm a Boomer and proud of it. Not my fault or my responsibility that those who survived the Pacific War thought "Woo-hoo! Now I can get me some that I don't have to pay for!"

    It was Nixon and Reagan that fucked up the economy...with a great deal of help from Wall Street (all ages) and that smarmy NY slumlord in the White House who, strictly speaking, fits into the Boomer demographic, but if someone had bequeathed me $10 mil (or even $1 mil; I'm not fussy) the way his father did, I'd have made much better use of it.

    The greatest, most prosperous time in the history of humanity? The ones who fought the hardest for civil rights?

    Jesus, do you even listen to yourself anymore?

    You're a baby boomer, but you're not a boomer. A boomer is someone like Oldfella, who talks about how this generation is lazy and shiftless, and they're too sensitive. He's utterly out of touch with current issues aside from the fact that every young person should stop complaining, pull themselves up by their bootstraps, and work hard because that's how you get rich. In short, he's your crazy uncle who likes to talk about the blacks and the gays at Thanksgiving. You just nod your head "sure, Uncle," and let him rant.

    Up until he starts in with the Bell Curve, and rigged IQ studies, and phrenology charts, then you gotta say "I gotta go have some explosive diarrhea, I won't be out of the bathroom for about an hour", and then you escape out the bathroom window, even if you have to punch it out with a towel around your hand.
