We need to split up this "Millenials" group to differentiate between the younger parts of our generation and the older:

I suggest "Classic Millennials" for us born between '81 to '88

And "Modern Millennials" for those born between '89 and '96

You heard it here first!
For the record, I'm a "Classic Millennial" (born in '83)
Also, I refuse to use the "Classic Coke/New Coke" analogy to describe this new taxonomy (and so should you)

If y'all don't remember, New Coke was a disaster; therefore, comparing New Coke to Modern Millennials is an insult to Modern Millennials

Please stop doing that
ALSO also, some education:

The gap from '77 to '83 (referred to as Xennials or Oregon Trailers) is a SUBSET, not a full-on generation

It pertains to a group who easily bridged between old & new tech (card catalogs vs computer searches)

'77-'80: STILL Gen X
'81-'83: STILL CM
ALSO x3:

For those of you riding into my mentions on some sensitive ass "stop the division" bullshit...

Y'all are the only MF'ers who took something creative, fun, & (from the massive amount of positive feedback) widely accepted...and made it about YOU

Get over yourselves😒
