i used the phrase "boomer" quite a bit not long ago, still do a fair amount if i need to. recently it's been popular among redditors to overuse it after the NYT wrote a condescending article criticizing millennials again, only this time for the phrase "ok boomer". as a result, even boomers are using it, leading to overuse and lack of value or meaning.

Considering I just said "I'm Gen-X", that would indicate that I was born between 1961 and 1981, making me between 38 and 58 years old - which is accurate.

I guessit depends on whose dates you follow. I'm still gen-x with your range.

Australia's McCrindle Research Center uses 1965–1979, and Gallup also uses 1965–1979. Authors William Strauss and Neil Howe define Generation X as those born between 1961 and 1981. They argue that those born between 1961 and 1964 are part of Generation X rather than the Baby Boomers because they are distinct from the Boomers in terms of cultural identity and shared historical experiences.

It's not an exact science.... I'm sure each has reasons to adjust the range based on what BS they're trying to sell.

Well, Strauss and Howe are very wrong. There isn’t much people born in 1981 have in common with someone born in the early 60s. Also, they include those born 2000-2004 as millennials when they are very much Gen Z. For goodness sakes, some people born in 2000-04 are even the children of people born in the early 80s. People born 2000-2004 don’t even know a world without the internet and cell phones.

It's an arbitrary figure/time-period. It's not based on any specific event. Wrong is a matter of perspective. From their perspective, they're right. The 65-80 time period isn't that much different than 61-81...and I'm in both ranges, so as far as defining which generation I belong to, both are adequate measures.

Besides, all of this was established before you were born.

If you get called a "boomer" by children, just call them "boomers" back. They don't know how to deal with it, so they just repeat it until you wear them out. It's like playing with the baby...your goal is to get the baby to sleep.

to be fair, when an out of touch generation starts patting itself on the back on facebook with pictures of minions, it's clear what mental process is happening
