I’m born in 1972 and you’re right.
I spent my childhood and adolescence saying how much I hated my generation.
And what you pointed out is exactly why.
Short of it:
There’s a lot of boomers among GenX in this group.
But do #GenX on Twitter and you’ll find the GenX you’re looking for. They’re on fire today, as Fox TRIED to say “GenX SAVE US FROM cANCEL CULTURE!” and GenX on Twitter is like: F You Fox. You canceled us in the 80s.
I think Apathy is supposed to be a vaulted trait in GenX. I never saw apathy as a good trait in any generation. As a survival skill, I can see it but it’s important to care when you’re no longer in survival mode I think if you can.
