We were drugs and fucking yourself up and being just a general pot of filth. The new generation are the ones I see whimpering online (I am in touch with lots of them) about using black memes is the same as blackface and wailing about STEM.
I don't know if it's just because I'm posh but my generation I didn't really know there was an option for me to take that wasn't studying STEM. It wasn't really on the cards unless you were like one of the dumb girls.
It's seems a weight almost impossible to bear for someone to become the living representation of the demographic of their generation. How typical are your attitudes for your cohort - and more importantly how many of them made as much of a success of it as you? Because you seem somewhat atypical in at least some respects.
And on another note - it's a double 'n' in Millennium (and the derivative) as anyone who lived though that damn Y2K bollocks should know.
Of the girls I know from high school, those who haven't had kids are full fucking looney and that includes the posh ones. It's a pretty straight divide. Of the others, they seem lefty but not total nutters. Oddly the children line and sometimes the long-term-relationship-line is something that separates the mentals from the rest. That said there are exceptions.
The men are probably similar but not as out spoken about it. That said, I don't hang out with creepers and it's creeper type of guys who wind up in the wah wah feminism land.
I have a lot of friends who lean libertarian and don't give a shit about this kind of garbage. All black people/asian people/indians etc roll conservative and non crazy. That said, that's probably an educational/class thing - I know working class white people but no poor brown people.
pfffff I can't spell.
