    their parents are disappointed in them and their kids hate them. shitty deal.

    I don't mind gen x. They gave us early 2000s nu metal like korn. Also the matrix was created by gen Xers. Tons of good shit came from that generation.
    My folks were boomers, but I'm pretty sure they aren't disappointed in me (though I know my decisions sometimes baffle them). My kids probably do hate me at the moment, but they're at that age (late teens/early twenties) and their mother and I split up last autumn so I expect they'll get over it eventually. If not though, I know I did my job as a father and raised them right, I know they'll continue to grow into good men, that's what is most important to me.

    I have always liked generation X and thought I would have fit in better if I came of age sometime between the late 70's through the 90's.

    I don't hate generation X. My Mom is generation X and my Dad is a baby boomer strangely enough, but I feel I have more in common with my Mom. I've always been interested in what the 60's and 70's were like. Also, one of my favorite TV shows actually was a generation X show (1972), so I can say they had some interesting media at the time too.

    That's only because Gen X is supposed to be the "anti establishment" generation, but it's pretty hard to see that, when your generation has become the establishment. But, I think that people, particularly of younger generations, fail to see the forest for the trees, because a lot of what Gen Xers believe, promote, or entertain themselves with, hasn't really changed. It's societies views towards these that has changed. What was considered highly taboo or rebellious in the early 90's is,now considered mainstream, and no big deal. I mean, you guys remember when Murphy Brown was so controversial for portraying an unwed mother? Remember when the crap Howard Stern said was just so shocking that it was a big deal? None of this stuff is shocking or really considered taboo anymore.

    What is more, every generation has to grow up, and become responsible people. That doesn't mean you're "selling out". It means you're looking at life realistically. But, I do think that many gen-xers have contributed to a business culture that is less stringent and mechanistic than previous generations, particularly in industries like tech or other creative start ups that have had non conformist structures.

    My parents are Baby Boomers. My cousins are ranging from generation X to generation Y. Therefore, I could relate to generation X as they had given direct influence to me throughout my childhood. They are my cousins after all. As for Baby Boomers, I don't get them sometimes, but I do respect them. As for generation Z, I get along with them too because they are my nieces and nephews. I hang around with them a lot as their babysitter. Therefore I get updates on what's the trend and what's going on in their minds. So yeah..

    Generation Y

    I've always thought of Gen X as relatively uncontroversial, compared to their predecessors and their successors.

    I hope not because that hatred would be unfounded. It was the boomers that borrowed like there was no tomorrow and retired well at everyone else's expense. And it was the Gen Xers who created the world wide web, trailblazed the industry, went in, made mistakes, reaped the consequences of the dot com bubble and paved the way so that future generations could succeed in entirely new industries. It's definitely the most underrated generation.

    Alas, still looking for that good retirement. (It's not happening) I could tell you how much I earn as a freelance journalist and as a gardener and you would want to adopt me.

    here is my idea...
    X's are seen as stupid and lazy even by Y's... because they watch tv for down time instead of interactive mediums. But they're not old enough for it to be excused.

    Also when Y's started getting their first jobs, the stupid team leaders who didn't really know their arse from their elbow were X's who got the job because they'd been there slightly longer. :/

    I wrote a paper about it way back in college

    But no it's baby boomers as an entire generation I am not a fan of they were literally the tail end of hippies, disco coke glutens, etc. Baby boomers created half our mess with their gluttony (not imo gen x). Gen x is just now rising to power as they age. It's baby boomers who as a generation paved the way for both a lot of cultural rebel and then reform but also reaped many benefits at the cost of their children and children's children. Back in the day I had a lot more stats when I wrote that paper well over a decade ago when I predicted the recession 4 years before it happened could already see the pre effects. Baby boomers as a generation are the ones who should be ashamed of themselves. Bunch of fruit loops grew up quintessential middle America as a generation rebelled, then reformed and traded big time at the cost of decent benefits etc and they are tapping out the last of social security.

    Gen x had it sorta easy in some ways as a generation but they also did not create half this bullshit by selling out. Interesting how all the hippies turned into the largest sell outs as far as a generation goes.

    Where is it gen x gets a bad rep outside that article I always thought it was more so gen xs tail end and most of gen y who are all considered incompetent basement dwellers.

    I will say gen x and gen y have had an annoying take and effect on turning legit affirmative action for basic civil rights into way too much political correctness. Way too many gurus doing counter culture crud. We get it nothing is appropriate way to classify anyone and everything is bad for you and blah blah blah
