Face it, fellow millennials: we kind of suck.
Other generations – and even some fellow kiddos born in the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s – think we’re self-centered, lazy, total PC police. And I’m not done. A quick Google search of the phrase “millennials are” automatically fills in the next word to be dumb, stupid, screwed, and a host of other words that are the opposite of positive.
Don’t believe me? Just ask Twitter. Generation Y is currently getting destroyed by the trending hashtag #MillennialBillOfRights.
What started as a harmless Twitter game with the help of @ICanHash has since turned into a clusterf*ck. “I just thought it would be funny to see what ppl in the hashtag ‘community’ would come up with. Criticism and Defense of Millennials is a huge vein, in social media, ironically lol,” said Jonathan Xavier, one of the people behind @iCanHash to Forbes. “I think a lot of the hashtag game players are millennials themselves so there wasn’t any hate we desired to express towards them.”

But before you continue to bash millennials, this guy brings up an excellent point.
