As a X-er whom the young confuse with a Boomer (God forbid!), I appreciate this clarification. And I resent the implication that I'm any less capable of scowling "Get off my lawn!!" and then shuffling back onto the porch in my socks and Tevas than my immediate elders are.I love how no one seems to know how old us Millennials are. We're in our 30s and that vast majority of us still learned cursive in 3rd grade.
Millennial seems to be the catch-all term for "Anyone younger than me that I disagree with."
Then again Boomer now seems to be "Anyone older than me that I disagree with." So I guess it goes both ways.
I will admit that my mind was blown when I learned that my daughter was not being taught cursive in elementary school ~ a decade ago. I mean, it's an imperative if for no other reason than to enable her to appreciate our late '70s basketball jerseys.
