I always had both. But today you got player/swag/tiktok hookup culture, contrasting with incel/unironically edgy/girls-are-icky/Th0T Patrol stuff contrasting with it’s 20-gayteen / inclusion / acceptance / fight-discrimination subcultures.
But despite the new names of things, it’s similar to how it was before although I do see progress in some areas along with some desperate regress in other areas.
I think it’s _probably_ a little easier but only if you’re in a supportive subculture..
As far as adult reactions? All depends. I still don’t understand most people from “my generation”. Hated ‘them’ growing up for the most part for constantly trying to enforce norms that were illogical to me and I look at how they turned out and I’m still mostly embarassed by my generation except for one thing:
A lot of men my age range raising kids have been fantastic parents, following a Mr Rogers, “be a good guy” inspiration, and that makes my heart proud.
