Over a year ago Ynot and I were over on the regular md site commenting on someone's blog about generation X. One of the comments was from a beautiful blonde headed woman who had commented on that blog about her generation. Well, I posted a comment on that blog correcting her about she was actually in the other generation. She then commented back saying no matter what the dates were, she will always consider herself a gen-X'er. Steve didn't know that either, so he googled it and sure enough it said the same thing I told him. His response was something like, "well, ya learn something new everyday". lol I have noticed that a lot of people don't seem to know what generation their in ranging from the "Grand" generation, to the "Baby Boomers", to "Generation X", to finally "Generation Y". Do you know your generation, and the year each of these 4 generations start and end?

Well, depends on who you ask, because some people differ in opinion as to when the Baby Boomer era was...but I think I'm a "late Bloomer," so to speak. 1958 was when I was born.

And as long as we're bringing up ancestry, my father and his sibs were first-generation Americans.

I'm a Baby Boomer. I think the birth years are somewhere between the mid 40's and mid 60's. Lots of babies born in those years.

Very good, VG! You nailed the baby boomer years!

I'm not certain,but I think a "generation" lasts about 20 years,don't quote me on this.

Luna, it's actually every 18 years!

Grand Generation is before 1946


Baby Boomers are from 1946 to 1964


Gen'X'ers are from 1964 to 1982


Generation Y from 1982 to 2000


Not sure what the generation is called for people born after 2000 yet. Does anyone know?

I'm a Gen-X'er (Feb. 1967)! Eat your hearts out, Baby Boomers!
cutecarrie6969

Apr 5 @ 10:23PM  
I'm guessing Y...and since a generation is every 18 years....

Grand - 1928 - 1946
Baby Boomer - 1946 - 1964
X - 1964 - 1982
Y - 1982 - 2000

Right? Then whats the newest generation called? Millennium babies?
cutecarrie6969

Apr 5 @ 10:24PM  
Damn you....you posted the years while i was doing the math

lol....at least i can still add and subtract in my head
TheAvenger

Apr 5 @ 10:25PM  
Why should we eat our hearts out? I wouldn't want to be a Generation X-er. That's known as the "me" generation, if I'm not mistaken. A generation of totally self-absorbed kids who grew up into totally self-absorbed adults.
StraddleMyNose

Apr 5 @ 10:27PM  
Very good, Carrie!

Not too many people know all this. You may be right about Millennium Babies called that after 2000. I think I might have heard that a few times, but not sure if it is right.

No, BKB, but you do have to listen to Madonna, Pat Benatar, Def Leppard, and Duran Duran!

I'm the begining of generation X.. sorry i'm not a self absorbed adult...and never was one as a kid.... It all depends how every one was raised.. We we rasied to never want for something we could never have.. If that makes any sense?

I'm a Gen X-er, but I'm not self-absorbed at all. Wish I could be self-absorbed, though!

Oh and also anything we wanted we had to work it off to get it.. We never got hand outs from our parents.. And we are raising our children the same way..

Yeah, not sure why the "hippy" generation thinks us Gen-Xer's are selfish and greedy.


Btw, just kidding about the hippy thing, even though so many Baby Boomers grew up in the late 60's. lol

Also, that blonde woman I was referring to from that blog over a year ago was born in 1961 I think, but she said that she still considered herself to be a Generation X'er. I kid you not about what she said.

I always thought it went like this

Baby boomer (1943-1946) ā€“ (1957-1964)

Generation X (1958-65) ā€“ (1975-81)

Generation Y (1981-2001) ā€“ (1995-2001)

we just had this at work, and I'm a gen x, my parents were baby boomers and my grandparents were what was known as traditionalists. They went over this because of the different work ethics each group has and how it affects your work environment. Really interesting stuff.

Well, at least I'm not OLD enough to be a Baby Boomer.

Do you think that because you're YOUNGER you have some sort of advantage over those of us who are older? Do you think you're more attractive? Or intelligent? LOL.

Nothing wrong with growing up in the '60s...and I can assure you, not everyone was a part of the Hippie culture, although nothing particularly wrong with that, either.

At least back then kids weren't quite so deranged and trigger-happy as they are now. And teen pregnancy, though of course it occurred, wasn't so prevalent as it is these days. And not just that, but these days people seem to embrace bad behavior; they consider it entertaining; they consider the weirdest sexual deviations "normal." They see nothing wrong with blogging about the most disgusting things...and what's even more disgusting is that they actually have an audience! They have people who tell them that their shit (pun intended) IS actually funny! At least hippies were about something; at least they were demonstrating for a worthy cause.

Nowadays, kids kill each other over a stupid pair of sneakers or just because someone made fun of them. Even 8-10 year olds plot to kill their teacher! How many times do we hear of a school shooting in the United States these days? A LOT. And we sure didn't hear of it that often back in the '60s...and I lived in Los Angeles County, where it would have been more likely. We had the Watts riots and stuff, but that was pretty much confined to one area. We didn't have elementary school or high school students showing up to school with AK-47s murdering several innocent people before blowing their own brains out, that's for sure.

And as far as being self-absorbed, of course that doesn't apply to everyone but it is very much a prevalent attitude these days. It is evident in a lot of the blogs that are focused on the writer. Like how wonderful they are, or how everyone else is out to get them or who is lucky enough to get to screw them, or how hot they are, yada yada yada...

Anyway...not sure why, as a rule, so many Generation X'ers are the way they are, but I surmise Ritalin and lackadaisical parenting, among other things, might have something to do with it.

Avenger, take a deep breath and relax. Most everyone knows that I was kidding in my comments. I love to tease some of my friends on here who may be a little older as far as this topic goes, and sometimes they tease back. It's all good nature fun. This blog is suppose to be all in fun and informational.

Yeah jeez.. give it a rest ... What did all that have to do with this blog any how?????


and to let you know since you brought it up again... "avenger" I grew up in good old Cleveland OHIO... And there sorry we had the same problems in schools and eveytthing else going on with kids now adays,, That is one reason why our parents sent us to a catholic school...
It's just it never made it in the papers or on the news that often as the things today are...There will always be children that for some reason do the things they do I will never understand it..
