Posted on Nov 17, 2021

“Gen Z needs to stop romanticizing everything.”

Gen Z might be known for roasting millennials and baby boomers, but the internet has a lot to say when it comes to Gen Z culture. So here are just some “toxic” Gen Z things people are calling out:


Apparently, believing a lot of things they see online:

gen z making fun of their parents for believing everything they see on facebook when they do the exact same shit just with different form of social media 😭

Taking a lot from AAVE (African American Vernacular English) and calling it “Gen Z slang”:

i don’t understand when white gen z say that aave is “gen z language” when ja’bria and the rest of them kids in those videos y’all like so much speak like that when they’re 5. you 18 and just learning about the word “finna.” y’all are not the same.

Being preoccupied with what millennials are doing:

I heard Gen Z is making fun of millennials on TIKTOK for wearing skinny jeans. You just found out what Jordan’s are. Let’s all just calm down.

Romanticizing everything:

okay but why do we (gen z ) make everything a fucking aesthetic, like I just saw a lawyer aesthetic video that glamorizes the life of a lawyer, y’all realize that being a lawyer isn’t just ✨old libraries, and ✨a fancy outfit

…and social justice issues:

this gen z revolution thing is being very much romanticised. it’s not quirky or fun to have to protest for basic human rights. it’s horrifying to realise you live in a country where the gov doesn’t give a toss about you. there are literal genocides happening. stop using these-

Thinking millennials care what they think:

my thing with “Gen Z thinks these Millennial styles/behaviors/whatever aren’t cool!!” is that I don’t fucking care
