My question is why does the entire world lump us all together? 2 decades of us.

I have almost nothing in common with the early boomers. I barely have anything in common with my older siblings. I have little in common with my younger siblings (some of which aren't boomers).

And I will say it before you all do: "STFU Boomer."

You are probably a "Jones" boomer.

Yes, I'm not a real boomer.

I never knew about this until a couple of years ago, but that is what I guess I am.

Not on board for the WIKI reasoning, for the most part, though.

You don't hear the Puritan, Cavalier and Transcendental generations complaining about their 30 year spans.

Boomer here and proud of it. For the most part, boomers know what gender they are and which restroom to use. Not like those blue-haired nose ring freaks we have today.

I identify as the very far tail end last of last Boomers ~

Pigeon Holed by a vague End Year by some Demographer, be it early or mid 1960's as my Birth year and their Differing end Definition

The way I see it . . . .

The early Boomers did all the hard Hippie Work that made the First Punk Rockers have an easier path to all the Decadence the Early Boomers Made Possible ~

Gotta Agree tho ~ I gotz very little in common with some Post WWII Born Person when I was born at the very beginning of the Viet Nam Era ~

I was playing " Army " as a kid throwing Dirt Clods as Play Grenades whilst my Fellow Early Born Boomers were in the Actual Army in Nam with the real things ~

Henceforth ~ Boomers gotta identify as: Early ~ Mid ~ Late ~ or Far Tail Enders

OK Boomers

You could say that about a lot of generalizations.

Its all part of the increasingly rampant move to divide up America; we have the racism thing in full bloom now, along with, rich vs not-rich, indebted college students vs blue collar workers, LGBTQ vs heteros, and, more recently Jewish people vs Muslims. If you can keep people split up its hard for them to coalesce into a single voting block.

Yep! Marxists have this down to a science. They've been perfecting it for a hundred years.

I've read that Boomers born between June 27, 1958 and July 2, 1958 are called "Smith Boomers."

And they've even divided the whole generation down into hours.

I'm a boomer. My sister isn't, but her daughter, my niece, is. Troof.

Generally speaking early Boomers that went to Vietnam are tough as shit, salt of the Earth, good people. The emotional crybaby “it’s manly to have a good cry” Karen men and women that I’ve met are either young boomers or millennials (that were raised by young boomers). Obviously not all young boomers are bad.

You’re obsessed. Thats what you are.

Think of something happy. Play a guitar, swim in your pool, play golf, survey your empire.

I’am a baby boomer defined by the things in the infographic. I can’t say it any better. Born in 63 never heard of the Jones thing.

The year in which we were conceived -- which we have zero control over -- has absolutely nothing to do with what type of person we end up being.

What about "The Greatest Generation" -- all good people, right? Well they had their bums, rapists, murders, mobsters, and con artists too.

The younger generations just invented the Boomer division so they can blame their lack of civility, work ethic, laziness, and being unmotivated cuz their parents are still supporting them on someone else.

Good or bad, people are a product of their environment. Always have been always will be.
