New Millennials are now called Gen Z?

Post by Mystery writer » Wed Nov 06, 2019 10:58 am

Does anyone else recall the latest generation being called 'new millennials'? My teen daughter mentioned something this morning about Boomers and Gen Z (short for Generation Z) arguing about climate change. Confused, I asked her, "what is Gen Z?" She looked at me like I'd gone mad. She told me Gen Z is her generation, and I said nooo, you're a New Millennial. We've used the term before and I've seen it bandied around on Twitter many times. 'New Millennials are obsessed with the zodiac', 'New Millennials are crazy for Avocados' etc. But apparently the term has never existed. I just searched google and there isn't a trace of it! And this Gen Z thing has seemingly appeared overnight. This is so weird.
