Maximus Decimus Meridius Thank you for your comment. As author, I was not trying to assert that women have seen the light, per se. Only that the tipping point is coming. What I wished to highlight with this piece is the beginning of it… the first small ripple in the pond, the beginning of the turn of the tide. Because thats actually how this historically goes. Either you pull it together, or you will be overrun by the society that actually reproduces the West does not.

Women have always liked more established older men, what’s new here is that feminism has brainwashed Millennials into being sexually unattractive herbs, so their female counterparts have to date Gen X to find real men. Thanks feminists.

What is a Millennial? If you were born a little earlier than and you consider yourself to be more Millennial than Generation X, that is your prerogative. Or if you were born in or just after and you feel that you are more a part of the next generation than a Millennial, the same applies. It is really up to the individuals born during the cusp years to decide the generation to which they feel a stronger connection. Defining a generation can be a tricky thing.

We identify particular generations, from first birth year to last, by looking for cohort groups of this length that share three criteria.

So many books and articles published in recent years tend to mention Gen X only in passing as a small, insignificant, “in-between” cohort leaving few lasting impressions. Instead, we hear about the Millennial state of mind, and how the Millennial-Baby Boomer relationship appears to be flourishing and providing all the nourishment the current generational identity checks seem to need.

As someone who has researched Generation X around the globe for years, I know that the Millennials and their younger “Generation Z” siblings owe a great deal of their generational identity to Generation X. Born between and in the United States — now between the ages of 34 and years-old — Gen Xers laid the political, intellectual, social, creative and personal ground upon which the Millennials today walk, talk and text.

The transitional and transformational time when Generation Xers grew up, as well as their current impact and influence at the height of professional careers, should not be ignored or erased. To understand how the Millennials think and act today and might change the world tomorrow, the cloak of invisibility must be lifted. Let’s start with the numbers.

Boomers, Millennials, and the Looming Generational Showdown is a recently-published book based on data collected by the Pew Research Center. While Paul Taylor’s project provides valuable insight into the world and mind of the Millennials, I was struck by how an entire generational identity could be determined by scientific data sets based on a subjective selection of birth dates. Chapter two starts with the claim that, “Millennials and Boomers are the lead characters in the looming generational showdown by dint of their vast number and strategic location in the life cycle.

Indeed, this way, the booming sound of the two demographics does become quite loud, leaving that mysterious Generation X to fend for itself, lost in the middle. Most troubling is any thinking that Boomers and Millennials are “also each other’s children and parents, bound together in an intricate web of love, support, anxiety, resentment, and interdependence.
