I once saw a system that puts a subdivision within Gen-Y in 1993 to take into account how warped the kids with no memory of the time before ubiquitous high-speed internet have turned out. I have a sister born in 1992 who’s totally fine, and my good friend’s little brother was born in 1994 and is a fucking weirdo, so I’ve seen it in stark relief and I think there’s something to that.
Yeah, it’s weird. I fall pretty squarely near the middle of the Millennial generation (which makes me filth) but I will always have more in common with someone born in 1982 than someone born in 1996, despite being the same distance in years away from me. Constant internet access changed kids, man.
