The boomers are a sensitive bunch. They have been ripping on millennials for like a decade. Now the millennials actually come up with a comeback and they get it banned.

Does this mean we can't make fun of Boomers on social media? That sucks. **doesn't even have a twitter or facebook account**

As a neutral non-boomer observer, boomers are trailing in the sensitivity rankings in this thread, so far.

You seem sensitive, is what I was trying to say with lightheartedness.

Daisy, I see you just came back after not posting since October of 2018.

Welcome back, do you wish to share why you were gone so long?  (I always enjoyed your posts).

I am not going to go into details because it was a long time ago and I am not trying to get anyone into trouble. Let's just say a break was needed and while I lurked I knew it would be better to not post.

It was just a personal observation between work and family. It doesn't mean it holds true all the time, but in my personal life it does.

First you can't make fun of one's age, next thing you know you can't make fun of the Irish.

Only the Irish can make fun of themselves.

FBGs should really filter 'Ok Boomer' if a portion of our population finds it offensive.

Funny how an act taken intended to mend a rift can have the total opposite effect.

:lmao: Nice stereotype 

 

ETA

Maybe you are referring to people on Twitter.  In my experience most people that spend a lot of time posting on that platform are the worst amongst us.  This isn't limited to an age, ideology, race, creed or particular sexual preference.  It gives users an anonymous voice to spew nonsense they never would dream of saying if it were attached to their IRL name.

I don't take offense to "Boomer".   Hell, I don't even take offense to being called "cracker".  I love tomato soup and crackers.  Both seem harmless enough.  You can call me Ray, or you can call me Jay, but you doesn't have to call me Johnson.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoYsfbq3vMc

Somehow I doubt you are called "cracker" much in Minnesota...but I could be mistaken.

The contra to Boomer, that being Gen-Z = Zoomer, is hilariously adorable to me.

Where you been, friend? 

eta* And Sinn, too. It's good to see people back in the fray that we might have otherwise lost into the internet ether. Glad to see you both in the same thread.

You're right, but that name, or boomer doesn't bother me at all.  Both seem like weak attempts at an insult.
