The relationship between Millennials and Baby Boomers has been a nightmare, they never seem to agree on anything and if you add Gen Z to the mix, things get even worse.
It's true that generational relations have always been broken, but this time it's way worse than anyone expected. It began when teens started replying by “Ok, Boomer,” on any comment made by a clueless older person making remarks about our modern world today. Especially whenever they insist on telling kids what exactly they're doing wrong in life.
Soon after that, this so-called "slur" started spreading rapidly and a lot of people started claiming that “Boomer” is a slur for a “minority group.”
I don’t really have a nickel in the “ok, boomer” dime, but imagine thinking “boomer” was the world’s first ageist slur. pic.twitter.com/vt4qLj3tV2— Daniel “parade balloon” Summers (@WFKARS) November 4, 2019
Thankfully, Dictionary.com stepped in order to clear out any confusion, then proceeded to give a formal definition of the word boomer. Try harder next time, boomers.
Boomer is an informal noun referring to a person born during a baby boom, especially one born in the U.S. between 1946 and 1965.— Dictionary.com (@Dictionarycom) November 4, 2019
The n-word is one of the most offensive words in the English language. https://t.co/30OAf7N83e
