    Millennial

    The generation known as “Millennials” (also known as Generation Y) get a bad rap from older generations. They are often described as whiny and entitled with no understanding of or ability to handle the “real world.” Boomers and Gen X-ers alike make fun of them for being politically correct, for using trigger warnings and establishing safe spaces. They claim Millennials need to toughen up, grow up, and work harder. The fact is that their reality is far different from that of Millennials and there are a multitude of misconceptions and misunderstandings when it comes to the Millennial generation. The unique strengths, circumstances, and experiences of Millennials are seldom discussed and this negativity towards the generation has led to most Millennials distancing themselves from the moniker. No wonder with articles like “The Me Me Me Generation” published in Time Magazine in 2013 stating, “They are the most threatening and exciting generation since the baby boomers.” This type of bias against the generation creates a hostile climate for them that is largely undeserved.
