The New York Times has lost it’s generational mind or at least the tried and true anti-Millennial clickbait isn’t working anymore.
As “Reality Bites” celebrates its 25th anniversary; as groups like Bikini Kill, Wu-Tang Clan and Hootie & the Blowfish reunite for tours; as generational idols like Ani DiFranco and Liz Phair publish memoirs; and as the first real Gen X candidates make a run for president, Gen X is in the air.
Wtf. This is your thesis? “In the air.”
And you know what else Gen X is? Getting older.
The newspaper of record everyone.
Its oldest members are 54; its youngest are preparing for 40.
Maths are fun, but this article not so much. It fails as a nostalgia trip and offers no insight for the uninitiated looking for a map.
