90s Kid: Those shows suck!
Regular Kid: Have you ever seen them?
90s Kid: No, I haven't, they won't be as good as anything from the 90s.
Regular Kid: Then how do you know they suck?
90s Kid: ....
Mike: Shut up you're not one of then 90s kids So you never watched that show
Oliver: Dumbass it carried over into the 2000s
"You shouldn't have a phone at your age. You should have grown up in the nineties. 90s kids were raised better."
Mike was born December 6, 1997. He thinks he's a 90s kid, but he's not.
They go on about No Doubt and the Spice Girls. They are quite lame and say things like "radical" and "wicked" in a non-scene kid way, with the occassional "for the win".
Person 2: "Woah dude you're such a 90s kid."
With 1995 - 1996 being a median time frame of the decade, a +/- 5 rule to the age of 10 can be attributed to the person.. Any older or younger, and the person falls outside the scope of influence of the decade.
It is the term "kid" that creates confusion. Some people seem to be using it interchangeably with "adolescent". While adolescent is more closely related (in terms) to adulthood, the term "kid" can properly be used to represent anyone under the age of 18 years of age. The use of the word "kid" is by consequence however, as "90s adolescent" just doesn't have the same appeal.
By that conclusion, technically a child born on Dec. 31, 1999 is a "90s Kid", as would the person be born Jan. 2, 1972, each person having lived at least 1 day under the age of 18 within 1990- 1999.
A "90s Kid" was aware and old enough to take part in the culture and influence around them.
