A Boomer’s guide to spotting a Millennial – according to Generation Z

As a sign that we’ve reached the peak of internet culture, the emoji has been dropped. If you don’t believe us, just ask the experts; According to a blog post by Jeremy Burge on Emojipedia, “It’s common wisdom on TikTok that the laughing, crying emoji is for baby boomers. And by baby boomers, I mean anyone over 35.”

So you ask with more than a hint of desperation, having only just learned how to use the laugh-cry-face properly, what are they all using instead? Answer: the skull face. According to Burge, it means “this is so funny I died laughing” or “I’m dead”. Obviously, really.

This isn’t the first time Gen Z has waged a metaphorical war against millennials. From caning her avocado toast to telling her to rip her skinny jeans, here’s an updated guide to how to spot a millennial — according to the new New Kids on the Block.

Gen Z takes great offense at skinny jeans. Since their heyday in the late noughties, when they were popularized by boho-it-girls like Paris Hilton, Sienna Miller, and Linsday Lohan, skinnies have been a popular choice for both millennial men and women. But where the ’00s was all about showing what you’ve got, 2021 is about hiding it: the baggier the jeans, the better. Don’t you believe us? Perhaps the message could be stronger from a TikToker who remarked that she would rather die than wear skinny jeans. Another viral video shows TikTok user @momohkd instructing people to throw away their skinny jeans, burn them or cut them and make them into something else. Like face masks maybe?
