We're actually a pretty okay generation to be honest. We are cool headed, easy to talk to, and pretty open minded. Yes, we have our flaws. Sure, we may not be QUITE as outdoorsy as the baby boomers were growing up, but I know for fact that we, along with Gen X, were a hell of a lot LESS ridiculously rebellious than the baby boomers were.

They complain that we're not even as politically engaged as we should be... unless, of course, we unquestioningly agree with all their politics. And yet we get shit for that as well. Too liberal, yet not political enough? Dafuq lol? Not to mention that politics in general is a very trashy, childish field designed for people who couldn't make something productive out of their lives.

That definition by Mr. SnowmanPants is utter bull. We lack common life skills and hardware? Then PLEASE tell me why older generations like Boomers keep bitching about the top engineering and tech companies like Google hiring us in droves and pushing out baby boomers?

And most importantly, why do we constantly need to even be labeled this much in the first place?
Mark Zuckerburg anyone? Millennial, creator and engineer of Facebook, one of the greatest communication networks of today? And contrary to popular beliefs, no we do not just live in our parents house forever. We just stay there until we're financially independent, which is hard to be in this economy (thanks Baby Boomers).

No, millennials are not perfect. But we certainly don't deserve the ten kinds of shit that Baby Boomers LOVE to talk about us without even stopping to take a very good critical look at themselves. It's kind of amazing how jackassed they can be when you think about it :)

Get a millennials mug for your Uncle Paul.
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.

Get the Millennial neck gaiter and mug.
A snitching, over-sensitive, clueless, moronic, tattooed, gay loving, drug taking, whining, entitled non gender specifc person born late 80's to early 2000's who is full of mock empathy, mock sympathy, mock grief and mock outrage who loves any word they can stick "ist" or "phobe" on the end of and who thinks that having friends who are a different race, gay or crossdressing is groundbreaking and "progressive".
Person 1. Hey I see you got a new tattoo..it kinda looks like a man with tits?
Millennial: Yes its my tribute to the 20 trans-gender people who were murdered last year probably by someone with transphobia.
Person 1: Mmmm...did you know there were 2 million murders of non-transgender people last year and most committed by someone who didnt like a person for some reason.
Millennial: Ohhhhh?? Gee I need more tattoos.
Person 1: Stupid goddam MILLENNIAL!

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.

Get a Millennial mug for your barber Yasemin.
A generation of people who feel that everyone apparently owes them something, instead of getting their asses off of Facebook, going out and earning their way in life, rather then combing their manbuns and sucking down Soy Frappachinoes while also eating Tide Pods and bitching about illegal immigrants
That millennial cursed me out because I didn't agree with his views, fucking asshole he is

Special little snowflake.

Born between 1982 and 1994 this generation is something special, cause Mom and Dad and their 5th grade teacher Mrs. Winotsky told them so. Plus they have a whole shelf of participation trophies sitting at home so it has to be true.

They believe themselves to be highly intelligent, the teachers and lecturers constantly gave them "A"'s in order to keep Mom and Dad from complaining to the Dean. Unfortunately, nobody explained to them the difference between and education and grade inflation so they tend to demonstrate poor spelling and even poorer grammar.

At work, millennials believe themselves to be overachievers who just aren't understood by their loser bosses. Even Mom said so when she showed up for the interview. They are the only generation in the universe to understand the concept of work life balance and to actually want to find a fulfilling career. All those Gen X losers just don't get it what with hoping to keep their jobs and pay the bills but they are just corporate drone so who cares what they think? They should be smart like Millennials and get Mom and Dad to pay for that stuff until they can work out what they want to do with their lives and then get rich doing it.
Well, I've been here at this job for 6 months now and I've been on time mostly so I should get a raise now 'cause I've paid my dues.
Did you know we are the most technologically advanced generation, like eva? And smart too. They call us millennials cause we were born before the millennial I think.
