90s kids are hitting 40 now (or soon)

Signed, a 90s kid

[-] [email protected] 47 points 3 weeks ago

Depends on the definition. Growing up in the 90s, yes. Born in the 90s, no, not quite yet.

[-] [email protected] 15 points 3 weeks ago

Yea. Born early 90s here. Just into my 30s now. I guess I "grew up" in the 00s? I was in the second grade when the towers fell.

[-] [email protected] 23 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

These terms are just made up so it doesn't matter, but I always read "90s kid" to mean your childhood was during the 90s, so you were BORN in the 80s (edit: or early 90s)

[-] [email protected] 8 points 3 weeks ago

I was born in 92. My childhood (part of it, anyway) was in the 90s and I do remember the latter half of them fairly well. These things are never really clear cut, especially for people born around the "change" in generations.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 3 weeks ago

Yea. I have 3 little brothers. All of them are gen Z. Being so exposed to the same things they were, I often feel I have a lot more in common with gen Z emotionally, but somehow more financially with millennials.

It's in the name. If you were a kid in the 90s, you're a 90s kid. Babies are not the same as kids. Kids can cover a wide range of ages, as they can be referred to as that their whole life with a certain kind of phrasing.

I get the line is debatable, but I feel like consistent early conscious memories is about the starting line for "kid". I've never really heard of it being used to mean when they're born in conversation.

This is just my experience, but I've never heard of this particular molehill.

Every time I see these generational memes I think of this one.

[-] [email protected] 25 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

The oldest Gen Alpha kids are 14 now, older than the kid in the picture.

[-] [email protected] 8 points 3 weeks ago

It's going to be so funny when generation beta gets old enough to dunk on.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

i mean it's in the name

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

They start next year! Is Gen Gamma gonna be next? The generation naming is getting pretty lazy. Maybe a different name will stick, like "Millennial" did instead of "Gen Y".

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago

That's pretty good!

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago

Gen X were the shitty "journalists" pushing out the generation war articles.

I just did that this month. Made it to the 40. The 90s are as far away from now, as the 60s were from the 90s.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

This month like June?! Me too! High five! But not to hard don't wanna sprain a wrist...

[-] [email protected] 5 points 3 weeks ago

At least you're not 50, like me. Ugh.

[-] [email protected] 25 points 3 weeks ago

We're all kids. We just have responsibility now so we have to pretend we don't want to sit around and play with Legos all day. None of us have "figured it out" and the only reason it seemed like adults knew what they were doing when we were kids was because adults were old enough to have fucked everything up at least once.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 3 weeks ago

Like the environment! Yay!

[-] [email protected] 17 points 3 weeks ago

Don't be sad. I think 30 is a good age to be politically effective in the upcoming class war against the fascists and capitalists.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago

Jokes on them, 90's kids are pushing 40.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

I graduated in 1998 and I'm 44.

[-] [email protected] 15 points 3 weeks ago

A 30 year old would be a 2000s kid.

Why do people get this wrong. It's not about the decade you were born in, it's about the decade you spent most of your formative childhood in.

Roughly, kids born in the 70s were 80s kids. Born in the 80s were 90s kids. Born in the 90s were 00's kids. Born in 00s were 10s kids.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

2024 = 2030

Interesting math you've got there

Goddammit, I'm an 80s kid and refuse to accept otherwise. Now somebody please help me attach these tennis balls to my walker.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 3 weeks ago

Promise you won't beat me with a pool cue til I have detached retinas?

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

If nobody pays the requisite $2, sure!

sad 50 year old noises

... jk, being 50 has been awesome.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago
[-] [email protected] 8 points 3 weeks ago

A lot better than it was in my late 20s.

[-] [email protected] 6 points 3 weeks ago
[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

You're welcome back!

[-] [email protected] 10 points 3 weeks ago

Some of us are 30 year old women, than you very much.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 3 weeks ago

I'm 1983 and I barely remember anything from the 80s aside from kindergarten

I guess you could say I was bootstrapped in the 80s and formed in the 90s

[-] [email protected] 6 points 3 weeks ago

Same year here. We are xenials, to early for millenials, to late for Gen-X. We only strive the real 80s and be the real 90s kids.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago

83 here as well. I tend to identify with Gen-X much more strongly. I think that's because all of the music we were listening to was grunge stuff Gen-X was making.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 3 weeks ago

Born in ‘81. The ‘90s were my teenage years.

I’m just a ‘90s kid with a rapidly greying beard.

Don't say that... I'm a 40 year old man. I was a kind in the 90s, I wasn't born in the 90s.

[-] [email protected] 5 points 3 weeks ago

Yeah, but unlike other old people, we're still cool, right? RIGHT???

People gatekeeping what it means to be a 90s kid wasn't on my bingo card for today lol.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago* (last edited 3 weeks ago)

but if you were born in the 90s then you're 34 at most or 25 at least.

Is this whole thing about becoming a wizard true though?

[-] [email protected] 3 points 3 weeks ago

Got recommended a video “you know your a 2000s kid when”

And I only cried for 20 minutes
