Fedi generation poll, boost for maximimun demographic analysis
@beegrrl is "i have no clue what any of these terms actually mean" a valid answer
@Felthry yes, but you're probably a zoomer if you don't know what you are
@beegrrl @Felthry okay but is zoomer gen z?? Cause ive not really heard that one. Im a 95 baby so like im the one on the edge of millennial and gen z... just depends on who you ask/what you - the researcher - are using as the cutoffs. Otherwise your basically only getting what people self-identify as.
@beegrrl What are you going with for the official X/millennial cutoff? Curious xennials need to know.
@mcmoots the generations overlap. Choose which you identify with
@beegrrl I see "that three year limbo period between generations" isn't an option
@Kirin you determine yourself if you're in the gray area
LOL, It should be that way.
But like I said, it would annoy me when articles would say that the boomer generation was from 46 to 64. Almost a 20 year span. While others are in a 10 year span. No wonder there's so "many" boomers. It wasn't just the birth rate spike after WWII it was for a longer period of time also.
I feel too old to be millennial and prefer the idea of being x, but am too young to identify with any gen x culture stuff so it's always kind of a weird question for me
not trying to complain about how you structured your poll, just trying to give you extra information in case it's useful or interesting to you
@beegrrl Nooooo I've chosen the wrong one ;-;
@Frinkeldoodle you're a late millennial. Welcome to the club
@beegrrl ooof. I feel old. Gen x.
@beegrrl 1 % b o o m e r
@moss 100% monster zero ultra
@beegrrl Technically a millennial. Don't like the term, though.
@beegrrl Where's the option for "I'm technically a millennial, but I feel like a Gen X'er"? XD
@beegrrl This poll is really about finding out how many people born during Reagan's first term are going to show up and bitch about the options.
Uuuuuh look at us! We're special! We played Oregon Trail and remember when the country wasn't at a war.
@bulkington sorry gamers, we only support the last 4 generations from the Wikipedia article
@beegrrl Gen X: we were quite cool, briefly.
@bulkington all the xoomers I know irl are proto nazis so they are the antithesis of cool
@beegrrl White people in their 40s and 50s are always going to be a mostly shitty mixed bag. I have my doubts that future generations of middle aged white people will be dramatically better.
But things are improving. I don't want to call the white response to the Ferguson demonstrations *good* but it was a universe better than the white response to the 1992 Los Angeles demonstrations were.
@bulkington i always say that we're ultimately more divided by economic class than by generation.
Why do all options sound like the name of X-Men story arcs?
@beegrrl zoomer gang
@ida zoomers gonna zoom, boomers gonna boom
@beegrrl Technically I'm a Xennial-edge X.
@beegrrl can i reply "i dont know anymore"?
@beegrrl zoomer gang
also who are the 2% boomers
@beegrrl Gen-X because everyone else keeps ignoring them!
In the early 1950s, Hungarian photographer Robert Capa first used Generation X as the title for a photo-essay about young men and women growing up immediately following World War II. The term first appeared in print in a December 1952 issue of Holiday magazine announcing their upcoming publication of Capa's photo-essay.
There should be a category for "IDGaF" or I have no idea what I'm doing (insert suitable space animal meme)
I'm an older millennial, but I'm also an old soul, like I feel like I'd fit into the 60s.
@beegrrl These polls vary a lot. I suppose they really only show the age of the poster and their circle for the most part.
@beegrrl im on the borderline between millineal and zoomer so idk which one to pick
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
