Millennial is an identity given to a broadly and vaguely defined group of people. There are two wings of "Millennial" that are often at odds with each other: Generation Y (people born between 1981-1991) and Generation Z (born between 1991-2001). People of Generation Y often have characteristics similar to Generation X, which is why Generation Z will confuse Generation Y with Generation X and then claim to be the generation that represents "MIllennial," when in fact, birth years for Millennial range from about 1981-2001, just as the birth-years for Baby Boomers ranged from 1946-1964.
Both Generation Y and Generation Z can be called "Millennials," with the primary difference between the two being technology. Generation Y grew-up on personal computers, cell phones, and video game systems, while Generation Z has grown up on tablets, smartphones, and apps. Yet, the common ground between both generations is that both have been transforming and altering communication and identity--not just in the United States but globally.

A person who would say, without a hint of intentional irony, "I hate how all white men suffer from toxic masculinity and constantly inflict microaggressions due to their failure to check their privilege and respect the safe spaces of others. Oh, yeah... and I hate stereotypes."
Can you believe what that millennial just said? What's wrong with these kids today?

A member of Generation Y.

A generation being the average period it takes a human to be born, grown to adulthood and on average be expected to reproduce. A twenty year period.

This means the millennials that make up Generation Y were born between 1980 and 1999. The generation that saw the change of the millennium from the 20th to 21st century.
There is no good reason people have so much trouble identifying who is considered to be a millennial.

A term coined from The Good Place season 2 episode 4, a "millennial" is someone who's only been torturing people for a thousand years.
"I worked so hard on my torture ideas, and theirs are so basic. These millennials, they have no work ethic." (The Good Place S2E4 1:00-1:20).

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.
