      As a GenX’er when someone says “Ok Boomer” to a GenXer, I think to myself, “Oh, isn’t that cute?”

      Think about this. He wrote out the full word Boomer while he just wrote the shortened phrase the n-word. I think that if Boomer was as offensive as the n word, why didn’t he just type the full version of the n word. it’s obviously more offensive if your to afraid to spell it or say it.

      Thank you for coming to my ted talk :)

        Meanwhile in a parallel universe where “OK Boomer” is not offensive.

        It’s a compliment.

          Since saying "Okay "is a racist phrase liberals are exposing themselves as racists when they say "Okay boomer ".

              I'm young but young people should open their eyes and realize this:
              Your precious cell phone, Internet, and apps exist, and hell, YOU exist at all because of the boomers. The Greatest Generation had been through WW1, WW2, the Great Depression and if they hadn't done what they had done, none of us would be here so I suggest you open your eyes and choose your battles. It was the Boomers and prior that led a society where you could leave your doors and windows unlocked, not worry about your kid being taken by someone or wandering 50 feet away from you in the store, and had made the greatest advances in technology mankind has ever seen. I fear the day the power grid goes down for 5 days, people are so spoiled and can't even handle being without their phone for a couple hours. Most 30 year old men can't even change a tire, we have become a nation of wimps. Now crime and everybody being so touchy about everything. Remember these other countries like Russia and China are disciplined, and most of their regular citizens know how to rough it when they need to. We are in for some bad times if we don't start toughening up.

                David C We aren’t talking about the G.I. Generation. It’s the Baby Boomers specifically, don’t bring them into this. We acknowledge the achievements of previous generations, but we don’t appreciate the hypocritical bullshit they try to tell us sometimes.

                                                          I see alot of joke comments saying how old people say "oh we're not so sensitive" etc and then get offended when someone calles them a boomer. I don't think it's cuz they're sensitive about it, it's just how use millennials use it sometimes.
                                                          Like when an elderly person speaks their opinion on a serious topic, and a young person thinks that's an opinion that shouldn't be thought in today's society. So they say "OK boomer". Its probably the fact we're judging them for their opinion on something they find serious. Like I'm sure if a young person had the same opinion as the elderly folk then they wouldn't be called boomer but instead called a bigot or a homophobe. And I've seen some, to be fair quite sad, millennials who have been offended when their friend jokingly calls them a boomer. It shouldn't offend people if it's apparently a "joke", which is why I think some elderly people find it disrespectful to be called that.

                                                              A lot of the younger Millennials and Gen Z are actually calling Gen Xers "Boomers". Yes I know you guys are talking about "the Boomer mindset", not the actual age, but most of the people they seem to making fun of are 40 year olds. 40 year olds are Gen X. Baby Boomers are 60 and 70 year olds.
