#32: Generation Y
Not many people know this, but “Generation Y” is the less commonly used name for the Millennial generation. This Tumblr post refers to Millennials as “Gen Y” and makes a sad but true point about the state of the world. It describes many young Millennials begging older generations to stop funneling money into wars and instead spend money on education.
That’s obviously not the case today. We guess it could be seen as idealism vs. realism, but it’s sad to think that a reasonable request for more education funding is seen as whiny and entitled. Millennials have made plenty of reasonable requests, only to be gaslit into sounding like entitled brats.
