The generation wars began when my group, the Millennials, took up rhetorical arms against the Baby Boomers.
Our grievances included being left nowhere to live, having our wages constantly suppressed, and being provided with both a blisteringly embarrassing political climate and a slow-roasting planet.
And now, it is Gen Z’s turn to battle their elders, and as their rallying cry, they have mostly chosen to rage against Harry Potter fandoms and the word “adulting.”
So yeah, let’s war, I guess.
11. So cute
You’ll find your drink of choice soon enough, don’t worry about it.
millennials are so cute they're like obsessed with rose gold and like WHERES MY WINE

Ok but the thing is, we are.
millennials say doggo and think they’re gonna get laid

It’s because we’ve been provided the same adults responsibilities as past generations without the same resources.
And also we’re QuIrKy!
Why do millennials love to be like “Adulting?”???? like yeah you’re pushing 30 I’d hope you’re adulting

8. The Wizarding World
Honestly past a certain age this is fairly cringe.
Millennials, please take your Hogwarts house out of your Twitter bio.

Don’t fight it, own it. Nobody beats time.
Millennials the past 5 years: “I’m getting old”
*Gen z calling millennials old*
Millennials: “OMG JUST CAUSE I HAVE A SIDE PART DOESNT MEAN IM OLD”

6. No clue
We know what it is we just still don’t get TikTok.
why do 26 year old millennials act like they have absolutely no clue what social media is

5. Doing a thing
Stop doing things and go back to doing that thing I’m always telling you to stop doing.
millennials love saying “so i did a thing?” girl go re read harry potter and shut up

4. Hot for bae
Whoa, it’s like there’s one in the room with us right now.
millennials be like “coffee is bae!?☕️ #Adulting ???

3. Pizza party
It’s the finest dining around, baby.
Not sure how millennials made liking pizza a personality trait but they did and now we’re all forced to live with it
— izzy (@izabowl) December 19, 2020
2. The paradox
Ok if we wanna have personalities, they can NOT involve pizza, that much is clear.
millennials really out here thinking not liking pineapples on pizza is a personality trait

1. It’s in the jeans
All that is old is new again. Except for us.
If Gen Z is canceling skinny jeans in favor of mom jeans, doesn’t that make skinny jeans the actual mom jeans since moms (and those of mom age) are the ones still wearing them?

This war will be a brutal one, but mostly because one side ain’t gonna fight it.
We are tired, we are broke, and we’re very used to staying inside now.
