I wrote an OP a good while back how I actually like Millennials.
Yes, I too, often made fun of them for being scared of doorbells and not wanting to touch raw meat.
The fact is, they have been a catalyst of change. Maybe their quirky ways just would not accept what has been accepted for so long.

Things that immediately come to mind are.
Sexual Abuse
Bullying
Racism
Sexism
Income Equality
healthcare for all
Justice reform

I may not agree with all their stances, I believe things are changing for the better. I think we will go through unbelievable pains before those changes are realized.

We have a different opinion about millennials.

Not hard workers.
Like to live with parents forever.
Can't cook at home, only order food.
Horrible fashion style.
Even more horrible music.

Only way out is raise kids old school before too late.

They are all for bullying. Say anything against their programming and you get bullied

They want to hire under qualified people to fulfill quotas. So the only way to do that is to see race and sex

They don’t realize the income equality means that everyone is equally poor

Millennial here.

We’re doing what we have to do to make a better world after boomers royally screwed the pooch. It’s ironic that a generation that could build a life and raise a family from a single jobs income has the nerve to call us entitled. We have almost none of the things they took for granted.

That’s why we are the way we are. The fantasy world of last century had to end eventually.

I’m a millennial. I joined the military at 18 years old. Served 10 years and got out to switch careers. Went to college while working full time and taking care of my two boys. I’ve only had a 1 month gap between employment in my entire adulthood. I’m will be 37 tomorrow, so don’t take those broad brushes to heart. Most of my friends are also millennials and work just as hard as me.

It depends, both of our kids are very hard workers. They are both married, have their own homes, my son even listens to the same music I do along with his own mix. You're generalizing and that's bad no matter who does it to whom.

Yeah, I see things changing alright.


Bullying? Are you kidding? Today's SJW / LGBT gang are noting but bullies.

How many examples do you want of them going after people who disagree with them?

This CEO Made a Political Donation, Then Lost His Job Because Liberals Didn’t Like It

Let's continue.... This Preferred Gender Pronoun Bulling BS. They try to force everyone else to speak and say what they want or else.

Guess what, a guy in a dress is a guy in a dress. That is fact. Seems that the new generation is oblivious.

Fairy tales are fairy tales. We now treat mental disorder as normal and normal as something to be shunned.

I for one will resist anyone trying to forcibly tell me or you what we can say or how to speak.

Also a millennial here and don't worry boomers we don't all blame you for every problem that ever existed, nor do I believe we have magically fixed everything because we're so much better and so woke.

Like being able to communicate instantaneously with anyone on the planet?

Or having access to all the collective knowledge of mankind in your pocket?

I think we were the first generation of parents that cared about our children's happiness over
material success.

They'll be remembered as the participation trophy generation and a role model for how to NOT raise children properly.

Amazing isn't it? The world ks flatter than ever, competition is literally global now, but somehow millenials are lazy and entitled.

I agree, they created more bullies when they tried to change consensus in the schools than they got rid of. If anyone says anything bad about a person, a bunch of students go after the person without even knowing what the argument is about, they are profiling people worse than ever in high school. It went overboard, and the school boards will agree with what I am saying in many places, because I am hearing this from people on the school boards.

Healthcare, they have to stop the overcharging and unnecessary tests or if we go to socialized medicine they will have to take half of the wages in taxes to pay for healthcare. It is greed in the medical field that is the problem and plastic surgery and even dental implants and stuff like that should not be in healthcare paid by socialized meds, same with stuff like overpriced meds that often are worse than the meds they used to use as far as side effects.

These Millenials have not a clue as to what they are asking, in socialism, everyone has to work, and I mean work and accomplish something needed for society. Hard work, not gravy jobs. I like socialism, but it only works if everyone WORKS. Most of the young do not even know what work is
