I hear you. Being lumped in with others who don’t behave as well isn’t great. I think that’s the point though.

When us younger ones face prejudice rather than understanding and empathy - with derogatory words often used in relation to our generation in place of thought - that’s really where this “generational war” began.

Younger generations tend to be relatively self aware - there’s a big push around respecting individual identity and needs with inclusivity prioritised. “Okay boomer” I think is an eye roll rather than an attack - used to respond to boomers who do so frequently attack without the self awareness to understand that’s what they’re doing.

I feel you though - being lumped in there.
