    Why early generation Z members wants to be Gen Y?

    When i browse the older threads i found members of the earlier generation Z especially people in my age bracket hesitating to be a Gen Z'er. They always want to be a Gen Y. I feel like they are ashamed to be a part of this generation. I would like to know the reason.

    It is because they may relate more to generation Y, in comparison to generation Z. Especially in terms of games, television shows, movies, toys, etc.

    That is my best guess! I am personally born mid generation Z(meaning that I was born between 2000-2005, which would be the mid years of the generation, since each generation is supposed to be 15 years long, or at least from what I have seen), so I maybe wrong here...

    Though I have large doubts it would be due to shame of our generation, especially once taken into consideration that millennial's are one of the most frowned upon generations, and that people seem to have a more optimistic view of post-millennial's...

    I'm a borderline millennial (1996) but tbh I'm happy being gen Z.

    I think the problem is that many older gen Z people are in college (actually, most millennials have probably graduated already), which tends to be associate with millennials. Pretty much everyone tells us we're millennial so we tend to identify with them.

    well those born in 1993-1996 or so will relate more together and some of the time they get split upwhere the latter portion is called gen z while the earlier portion is called gen y which I disagree with but if you do believe that gen z starts in 95 then those born in that year and 96 have basically same experience as those born in 93 and 94 who ould then be labeled as gen y improperly. Basically you can't split the 2 halves up because they went to school and grew up and came of age in the same decade periods etc... So with that cut off time there will be confusion. I just think to end confusion make the cut of at the beginning of the mid 90's as the start of gen z as that's more of a defining period of the decade then 95 when 95 is pretty much the same as 94 and 96 etc... I consider myself the earliest of gen z cohorts I wouldn't confuse my generational experiences with someone born in 91 because the period in the 90's is different.

    Think back to a time in your childhood where there was a large family gathering or party with a lot of kids.
    Chances are, there was a little kids table and a big kids table. If you were in the middle in the age spectrum of all the kids, you'd want to sit at the big kids table, and would probably throw a fit over having to sit at the little kids table.

    Yeah, I think that's a perfect analogy to this Gen Y VS Gen Z debate. Gen Y is essentially the "big kids table" that those born in the mid-late 90s want to sit at, while Gen Z is essentially the "little kids table" that they don't want to sit at.

    However, on the opposite side of the coin, you have people born in the early 60s who want to be considered Gen X over Late Boomers because they don't want to be associated with old people. Kinda funny.

    In all seriousness though, if you were born in any year, you should just be your own person and not let an arbitrary generation label define you.

    I think it's generally those who grew up with siblings that were older or have babyboomer parents or xer parents depending on which they identify with.

    But I kind of side with those born in the early 60's as those born in the early 60's they were not born post war anymore than someone born today is. They were born during a war called the Vietnam war. While babyboomers are postwar children therefore imo they can't be babybommers unless they were born in the 40's or 50's.
