Community Debating Discussions #27 Generations Part IIhtoutlaws2012 Wonder if you were curious what exact gen you were born that wasn't on TheTopTens? Then look no further the data summed up speaks for itself. While most people on the site are either a millennial or from Gen Z, how about we also examine some of the past generations that you aren't quite aware of shall we?
First thing is how invented this whole nonsense that news journalists use today, back then before any of us would exist in the 20th, and 21st century long behold ''the Western World also known as the Occident, is referred to by many different cultures that come from these various continents of the earth (U.S, West part of Europe, Australia etc) both geographically and culturally, which means that the list is broadly indicative, but necessarily very general.''
Lost Gen: ''Originating with Gertrude Stein to describe those who fought in World War I. The members of the lost generation were typically born between 1883 and 1900.'' Only few live this long, but for those who are still kicking we salute you, and bless them with great living immortality.
G.I Gen: ''Veterans who fought in World War II. They were born from around 1901 to 1924, coming of age during the Great Depression.'' Like with Lost G.I is very similar, and yet former NBC anchor Tom Brokaw at one point said ''this was the greatest generation ever.'' Which blows my mind considering I only knew of its history in high school, and that was really it.
Silent Gen: ''Also known as the Lucky Few, were born from approximately 1925 to 1942. It includes some who fought in World War II, most of those who fought the Korean War and many during the Vietnam War.'' Hello there sir, or madame are you ready to serve your country? No well you're in luck kid because you just got drafted. Which makes the feeling of lucky few standout as a common nickname. Beyond thousands of lives die, and in honor of the world's wort war casualty in history.
Baby Boomers: ''Born mostly following World War II. There are no precise dates when the cohort birth years start and end. Typically, they range from the early-to-mid 1940s and end from 1960 to 1964. Increased birth rates were observed during the post–World War II baby boom making them a relatively large demographic cohort.'' This was the what I say was your decade where raising a family was very affordable back in these days, and the depiction itself is shown with the high increase of many famous names to come out this large crop is a somewhat gem like.
Gen X: ''Demographers and researchers typically use starting birth years ranging from the early-to-mid 1960s and ending birth years in the early 1980s. Some called Generation Xers the baby bust generation because of the drop in the birth rate following the baby boom. The drop in fertility rates in America began in the late 1950s, however There are approximately 88.5 million Gen Xers in the U.S. today.'' There are actually some of them on the site right now actually that have been in this gen, and in fact at the time the time for fashion design evolved in very creative ways as well as many other subjects were very unique for the time, and back when MTV started at its endpoint well there's always something fr everything.
Millennials: ''Also known as Generation Y, were born in early to mid-1980s as starting birth years and the mid-1990s to early 2000s as ending birth years. The Millennials surpassed the Baby Boomers in size in the U.S., with 76 million Boomers and 77 million Millennials.'' Awe yes the most pin pointed at, and most loath generation of all time just by the size alone, and yet here I am trying to make this one work. Well ignorance at its finest since I remember back in 2016 the word was brought way to much for a generation nevertheless was the blame for what's considered the lowest voted election in U.S history is over the line, but why is it this label is often out there because overpopulation perhaps.
Gen Z: ''Also known as the iGeneration, Post-Millennials, Homeland Generation, or Plurals is the cohort of people born after the Millennials. Demographers and researchers typically use starting birth years ranging from the mid-1990s to the mid-2000s, while there is little consensus yet regarding ending birth years. A significant aspect of this generation is the widespread usage of the Internet from a young age.'' Greatest example right away our the internet darlings nobody likes, but have a million subscribes include Jacob Sartorius, The paul brothers, and even Kylie Jenner from the Kardashians while not of YouTube, but of different popularity i'll never understand, but this gen is still growing, and in the internet world they seem to be slowly taking over.
Now with everything I have shared which generation are you matched positively? The criteria might be tough for some, but for others it starts out with you're young childhood determines natural selection in this case.
