Ah, millennials, also known as Generation Y. This generation reached adulthood at the start of the 21st century and have come to be associated with a variety of not-so-nice social and cultural attributes. This generation was born in the early 1980s, so they still recall what life was like in the pre-internet days, yet they’ve also come of age during a time when technology was developing at an incredibly rapid pace. They lived through the 1990s in its entirety, embracing “Friends” hairstyles and listening to 3 Doors Down on their brand new mp3 players. They were some of the first people to have and use an email address regularly. They grew up on Instant Messenger and were Facebook’s earliest users.

Since the dawn of time, previous generations have looked at younger generations with disdain and mistrust, yet these conflicts have never been more contentious than they are between Baby Boomers and millennials. Boomers think Gen Y is lazy, entitled, absorbed by their phones and social media, and wasting their money on weird stuff like avocado toast. Millennials think Boomers ruined the planet environmentally and left them with a huge mess to clean up across the board. Who’s right and who’s wrong? Let’s go to the memes.
