«OK, Boomer» – how two words separate an entire generation (right?)
They are currently being read often. Two words, eight letters, many effects: «OK, Boomer». "Please, what?", Thought the over 50 year old and thus inspired a new "OK, Boomer".
We must prove ourselves. Seven internships before the permanent position, before that the master had done the best and established two start-ups. And, oh, please don't be older than 25, right? All right. Chinese skills will be an advantage. OK, Boomer.
But we do not want our men to prove it. Since we have no desire to work, we are ruining everything after a short time and have to make a vacation in Bali first. The vibes are better there. We don't understand anything about the right work. OK, Boomer.
We boys are also narcissistic snowflakes. Our sensitive self-esteem collapses faster than the touch screen of a smartphone when it hits beyond waist height. We combine it with Insta’s likes of glass fish and meaningful images that have taught us that we are unique. #Selflove. OK, Boomer.
Meme-worthy to kill in the mouth
We have one thing to do above all: hear us out loud from the elders. But it's over now. The digital generation is lagging behind ̵
It all started on the Tik-Tok video platform, when users responded with the saying "OK, Boomer" to videos of an old man fighting over millennia. Soon, the spell was read on Reddit and from there spread like wildfire.
"OK, Boomer" – the boomer refers to the post-war born baby boomers – has become an innumerable replica of the Y and Z generation in the old age. A kind of mass appeal from the millions of boys fed. It was posted under embarrassing Youtube videos and Donald Trump tweeted, or was used by 25-year-old junior politicians not to intervene.
Yeah, right, even in politics, the new badge of digital natives has come. Chlöe Swarbrick, a 25-year-old Green Party politician in New Zealand, was cut short by an interjection during his speech. He identified it with a "OK, Boomer" nonchalant, which caused a worldwide sensation.
Who is Snow Maiden here?
Well, you imagine baby boomers, who want to see themselves as die-hard workhorses, as ambitious conformists, should be able to cope with it when young people destroy the long-lasting rattle of the generation that Two-word Invasion Machine guns are resistant. After all, they can still joke around.
But it's far. Reddit users report that Facebook has deleted "OK, Boomer" comments. Serial (older) journalists complain that the two words discriminate against an entire generation.
US radio host Bob Lonsberry said in a deleted tweet that "boomer" is the n-word of age discrimination. Such abstruseness can only be answered in one meme:
Older generations should be trained to wash in the best meme style, if they claim again that boys can no longer survive today, However, the use of "OK, Boomer" should not be overused. There are no canals. And in times of great global challenges like climate change, we have to bear with each other.
