I agree with this and mentioned the Y cut off in my previous post (because that's what the threads about). Idk what you're going on about otherwise? Wtf?! ..

So do you think Generation Y that is known as Millennials are people who were born from 1982-2000 or 1981-1996 or 1981-1997 or 1981-1999 or 1977-1994.Pick One.For me,it would be 1982-2000.

I feel like theres an in-between stage like 1998-2001 where we can't really be classified as millennials, as not much of our childhoods existed without accessible technology/social media, but at the same time, the platforms 2002-present kids (musicaly, instagram, snapchat) were not yet developed. We were the ones that came onto these platforms and really claimed them before big companies and corporations started using them to make money, and to market to younger Gen Zs. I feel like (as of 2018) most 16-19 year olds are more old souls, introverted, quirky, self-aware, slightly less image conscious than the overtly performative 2000s-present kids. I'm a junior, and I notice an obvious divide between the freshmen and sophomores, and the juniors and seniors. Has anyone else noticed this? Kids born around/just before 9/11, that got instagram and twitter accounts way before social media blew up into what it is now?

I used to think of people born between 1995-2000 as being Y/Z cusps and I still believe you could make a case for it, but now, i'm not so staunchly in favour of it. There will always be differences between people of certain ages, regardless of the year you were born in. Someone born in 2005 isn't going to be the same as a person born in 2007, despite both being regarded as members of Core Gen Z. Generations are a flawed concept and they have little relevance out in the real world.

lol I suppose in the "real world" they have little relevance, but it is interesting to observe how world events and the years they occur during affect the collective psyche of the group of kids experiencing them. it's also interesting that during the y/z cusp years and shortly after, gigantic technological and geopolitical changes/developments were made that now involve the youth in popular and consumer culture more than ever before. i think when these great changes happen, it's easier to group together certain ages if they were either too young or too old to experience them during their formative years. it seems like gen Ys were never afforded a true grasp on the reality online presence served older Gen Zs, & had already started living their lives when social media came out, while the younger gen zs are too caught up in an instagram ad whirlwind to see anything outside digitally filtered reality.

That's exactly what I've been trying to say but people keep insisting that there's such a major difference between a 2000 and 2001 born.
And lol I'm a junior in high school too (or was... we just finished school)

That's not a generational thing. Freshmen, no matter their birth year, are always going to be the most "immature" ones. Sophomores are still technically underclassman and barely out from being the lowest grade in high school. Most juniors are 17, driving, probably have a job, and most seniors have reached adulthood and have more responsibility. So there's always going to be some sort of "divide" because teenagers grow up so quickly and their taste changes and stuff.

The difference between a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old IMO is bigger than the difference between a 13-year-old and a 15-year-old. Depending on where you live, a 17 year old is already an upperclassmen, most likely driving and has a job, and maybe even deciding which college they want to go to, whereas the 15 year old is still under 16 and thus still can't legally drive or consent. They are barely in high school and still have a year left until they are no longer underclassmen.

That isn't a generation divide. That is just how growing up works. When I was in 8th grade (2015-16 school year) I felt as if the 6th and even 7th graders were annoying and immature, and I felt like they were so different from us despite being in my core age group. But as of now, there is not even a single difference, and we pretty much grew up the same.

I will say though that no matter the circumstances, there will never and I mean never be a big difference between a one and even two year age gap in terms of what you grew up with. But the different stages of growing up when you're young will make it seem that way.

Exactly.
People can't seem to distinguish between generational differences and growing up.

Don't know too much about how it would be in Malaysia, but as far as the US goes, the transition to Z kids culture did start in 2004.
That's when Cartoon Network's Powerhouse Era and Nickelodeon's Klaspy-Csupo Era came to an end, as well as SpongeBob's golden age with the movie. It was also in 2004 when you had broadband surpass dial up in adoption rates, and when the Nintendo DS came out, and even the PSP came out that year in Japan.
I'm pretty sure the the Y/Z transition for kids culture started as early as 2002 when the first cuspers (1997) hit their core childhood and when a lot of cusp shows started like KND and Billy and Mandy started on Cartoon Network, also WWF changed its logo to WWE that and hit into the Ruthless Aggression Era and Zoog Disney was over and changed to Disney Channel, even though that was the predominant Late Y year for kid culture and Core Y kid culture was extinct at that point. But it had gone in full by 2004 when the first cuspers hit their peak and what you said about the culture shifts from both Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. It started to lean more to Early Z by 2006 and the cusp culture died down after 2007 once the last cuspers (2000) hit their peak and a lot of cusp stopped running. The cusp culture officially was buried in 2009 once the last cuspers finished their core childhood, which was during the quintessential Early Z year for kid culture, and especially since all the cusper shows ended that year and Nick changed from its splat logo to the bland modern one of today. The earliest Core Z influences in kid culture started that year, as well, but wasn't in full force until at least 2011.

i think the electropop era is the last Y era (im assuming it was mainly targeted towards the 93-96 cuspers who were in their teens at the time), so i say either mid or late 10s

The electropop era (late 2008-mid 2013) does sum up the Late Y era. The core 00s era, which came before it, was Core Y. The core 10s era, after it, is either Early Z, or a cusp era. I kind of still think that this era is still Early Z, until about 2021.
What is your definition of Early, Core, and Late Y?
Is it like 1981-1985 as Early Y, 1986-1992 as Core Y, 1993-1996 as Late Y, or something different?

I think it's really been in the past year that Gen Z have come of their own, as all conventional college age kids as well as everyone who's school aged is Gen Z, and the older millennials (born 79-87) are either early middle age or getting close to it and even the younger ones are too old for a lot of current pop culture.

To be honest, I'm not sure if Millennial culture even ended yet but I want to hear when you guys think it did.

I like to use 2017 as a Gen Z steps in kind of thing.

If you mean culture as in when they grew up kind of culture, that's way different. If you mean culture as in when they were the most influential in it, then technically Millennials are still in control. It was around 2017 though when you noticed Gen Z humor to be more prominent on the internet, and more Gen Z ideals arise around the world. That was also around the time the oldest of Gen Z truly began to enter the workforce.
