16 Things that Gen Z Will Blast Millennials for In 2073

Younger generations like to blame older generations for their problems in society. In 50 years, Gen Z might point fingers at Millennials for societal shifts, tech addiction, avocado toast obsessions, and an insatiable craving for nostalgia. An internet survey recently asked, “What will millennials be blamed for in 50 years?”

Here are the 16 best responses:

Awful Baby Names

“Nevaeh, it’s Heaven backward.”

“I feel like it’s more unique to have a standard name like John or Mark for boys.”

The Rise of AI

“My Gen X and boomer bosses are pushing this, not me.”

“I am not as afraid of artificial intelligence as of natural stupidity.”

Raising Their Babies with Tablets and Internet

“We were raised on dial-up and cable tv. Same thing, different era.”

“Most millennials remember a time before cell phones, our childhood. Most of my millennial friends with kids refuse to get them a cell phone until they are teens. This doesn’t mean you don’t see lazy parents throwing iPads at kids. But the generation that truly had nothing but phones in their hands since birth are the ones who will not think it’s bad.”

Collapse of Digital Privacy

“It started when we were still pretty young, and when it continued, there was very little we could do about it.”

“Millennials had zero to do with terrified reactionary boomers selling out future generations’ privacy. The PATRIOT Act was long before millennials had any political power.”

YouTube and Tik Tok Families

“I don’t get how people just post their young children everywhere. Why would you make a social media account for a child who can’t talk yet? Also, it’s just wrong, that video of your child didn’t get 500k likes because it’s so cute; predators watch those videos.”

“I honestly think the YouTube and TikTok family trend is dying.”

Painting Over Hardwood Trim, Cabinets, Etc

“I put costly solid maple cabinets (light-colored wood with grain) in my kitchen. Somebody asked me, “Nice cabinets! What color are you going to paint them – white?” The look of shock on my face caused the asker to be shocked.”

“I generally agree, but my cookie-cutter house has those unforgivable honey-oak cabinets with thin ply panels. It’s a travesty not to paint over them.”

Not Doing Anything

“Millennials are the middle child of the generations. We’re jaded to the point where we can only focus on ourselves and hope for the best for our depressed little sibling to do better.”

“When society is no longer invested in patting you on the head, you just know by this point that you are not seen as the future anymore.”

A Lot of Stolen Identities

“The parental oversharing thing makes me grimace. Giving Facebook a comprehensive life profile of my children always felt incredibly risky at best, and now combined with the expanding abilities of AI, it could be a scary future for many kids. And as someone else mentioned, the amount of inbred creeps out there hunting for child content is another reason to not do it.”

“Regarding what is useful for an identity thief, TikToks of a kid at a playground is not a gold mine.

Taking up All the Cemeteries

“Millennials were born between roughly 1981 and 1996. So in 50 years, we’ll be 77-92 years old. But the way the economy is going, we won’t get to enjoy retirement, old age care, or good enough health care in general as we age. I’ll probably die working in my 60s.”

“I plan to get crammed into a pot with a seed inside. I’m thinking a maple seed, but I won’t make much fuss over it.”

The Avocado Wars

“I love that, for a while there, the symbol of millennial decadence was a piece of cooked bread and a single vegetable.”

Population Shortages

“Even though it is currently difficult to imagine, we will see countries’ populations decline in our lifetimes. It may get to a point where countries who still have positive reproduction rates will influence politics on an unequal level.”

“It’s not a shortage, it’s a decline, and it’s honestly for the best. Finite resources are available. Automation has eliminated millions of jobs and will continue to do so. Climate change will render huge sections of the planet uninhabitable and make agriculture incredibly difficult. The natural decline of the population is much better than having all those people die from famine and disease.”

Wealth Inequality

“Most of the boomer wealth isn’t going to be left to millennials. Most will be hoovered up by insurance paying for end-of-life care or banks during the next financial crisis when people start mass defaulting on household debt.”

“Many millennials on their soap boxes about wealth inequality will be very quiet when they get said money.”

Not Stopping Boomers

“We’ll be blamed for allowing people in their 60s-80s to run the planet into the dirt.”

“As Alpha will blame Z for not stopping Millennials. Yippy Skippy, the blame game goes on.”

Adverse Effects of Gentle Parenting

“I hate social media’s version of gentle parenting, which might be why it gets so twisted. I’m beginning to think that a lot of gentle parenting content was created to be one way intentionally to reel in conflicting comments to boost their content. None of it is helpful and adds to the black-and-white mindset.”

The 75 Blade Razor from Gillette

“At what point does a multi-blade razor become a beard grater?”

“I stopped at the Quintippio 15-blade razor, to be honest. Took my right eyebrow off last time I tried to have it tidied up.”

Not Doing Enough to Fix What Previous Generations Did

“Gen Alpha will feel this way about Zoomers, too.”

“How can we fix anything with no money and no power? I can’t afford an apartment on a teacher’s salary in my state.”
