Youth language explanation
You read the word "Boomer" on Facebook, but don't know what it represents? We will tell you what the term means and its meme format.
This means baby boomers: the baby boomers
The term "baby boom" refers to people born during the period of "baby boom". This period spanned the mid-1950s and mid-1960s, so the youngest person in this generation is now about 60 years old.
The term "temporary worker" is no longer simply used to describe people who belong to this period of birth, but a stereotyped description of outdated views. This meaning was first developed through the memetic format "OK Boomer".
In this format, senior citizens express negative attitudes to millennials by criticizing applications like "Future Friday Campaign" or demonizing TikTok, and answer with "Ok Boomer".
This means: "I am not interested in your outdated opinions. Please stop becoming important in life." In this regard, this meme often has interesting uses, but it also leads to conflict between generations.
This is how you use Boomer
The "Ok Boomer" or "Boomer" format can be used by people over the age of 60, who show traditional, sometimes narrow, behavior to the development of the younger generation. If you think someone is just older and more experienced than yourself than contradicting you on the basis of argument, then you can use the ASUS Mark.
The term "temporary worker" can also be used for people who frequently make statements such as "Everything is getting better" and cannot understand the digital development in the field of smartphones. However, you should ensure that no one feels triggered.
Many people also criticize the use of "Boomer", especially in combination with "Ok Boomer", because different generations are in direct conflict, no one reacts to the argument, and only their own generation feels good.
