A millennial is a person born from the years 1982 and 2004. Millennials are generally considered to be self-absorbed and spoiled, and even if the spoiling is not their fault, they still get blamed for being shallow.
The millennial vote was a key decider in the presidential election.

-Millennial or Millennials

A media popularized term for a generation of people born in western culture who came to adulthood in the early 21st century.

Often confused for being tech savvy or capable in life skills, millennials are more often incapable with life skills that earlier generations are commonly more adept at, such as changing car tires, filling out paperwork, hooking up entertainment centers or reading usage agreements and contracts on websites and smart phone apps before agreeing to them.

Millennials are more often only functional with contemporary front end usage of modern technology while being confused and incapable with more practical applications and the service of hardware.

A small minority of Millennials with inherited wealth gave rise to the "gig" or "shared" economy bubble. Much of the perception of millennials centers around this minority among the generation who attain great wealth from crowd funding, confidence scam investments and inheritances that are soon squandered on unsustainable and impractical business models.

The Millennials are for the most part very deficient in common life skills, sustainability and practical capability.
I just saw a Millennial trying to change a tire and add oil to his car. He gave up after dumping transmission fluid in the oil intake and trying to jack his fender until it crumpled.

Pretty much the most spoiled generation in american history. Thinks that the rest of the world is going to by in on their progressive and socialistic viewpoint. Not really their fault since they haven't known hard political times yet, and have been brainwashed by the liberal left media.
Boomer: We've gotta vote for Rubio this election! He'll save America.

Millennials: I'm offended , why do we "have" to vote for him? Are you forcing me? I'm a democrat...
Boomer: ...your naivety is amusing, and frightening.

1. The generation born between Generation X and Generation Z. Also known as Generation Y. Birth years typically range from 1980-2000.

2. What people - ironically often being millennials themselves - ignorantly use to refer to people born in the 21st century.
1. Nostalgic man: "I wish Millennials grew up when The Beatles, Elvis and The Rolling Stones were in their heyday."

2. 90's kid: Thank god I was born in 1987 so I could experience the greatness of the 1990's before I became an adult in the early 2000's. 90's KIDS FTW! It's a shame you millennials never got to experience a life before iPads existed and Justin Bieber was popular unlike us 90's kids."
Old man: "Do you even know the definition of millennial, kid? You are as millennial as a millennial as can be, and the children you talk about aren't even millennials - they're Generation Z."

Anyone born in or after the year 2000. This term can also apply to someone born at a point in the 90's where they wouldn't be old enough to remember anything that happened during the 90's (e.g. 1996)
