Okay, you get the point.
Avocado toast eating, cord-cutting persons roughly between the ages of 18 and 35 that don’t buy diamonds or spend money at chain restaurants that microwave over-salted entrees: how can the world deal with them?
By writing tons of articles about them, and raking in those sweet, sweet clicks, that’s how.
How this is BS
I’ll admit this piece is a little out of Bullshido’s normal wheelhouse. But I’m taking this opportunity to flex a little on the garbage “journalism” that’s spewing onto the Internet. This goes beyond run-of-the-mill clickbait into something that’s much more insidious: like an arms dealers selling to both sides, this kind of pseudojournalism encourages generational conflict in order to reap a profit.
Shame on you guys.
Millennials are going to click on the article because you’re trash talking them.

Millennials: millennials millennials? Millennials millennials.
PS: Goddamnit Vice. You used to not suck.
This is piece is now a repository for all the Millennial-related memes and stuff we come across. Enjoy.
As far as I’m concerned, Millennials should be reserved for people like Dracula and Duncan McCloud. The word makes it sound like someone’s been around forever. Besides, hasn’t there actually been more than one Millennium?
[…] In short order after the creation of the Internet in the late 1960s, the Information Age to metastasized into a full-blown culture of its own, resulting in much wider gaps between generations than ever seen in our history. Think of the difference between the “Boomers” and the “Zoomers”, the worlds they grew up or are growing up in, and what they looked/look like. Is it any wonder why large portions of the media are devoted to highlighting and cashing in on the schisms between them? Why, for a few years running all you heard about from some outlets was how Millennials are on a cultural killing spree? […]
