    “Is he a bad texter, or is he over 35?” Elizabeth Castaldi, a popular US creator, has sparked a viral discussion about the generation gap in texting when it comes to dating. Castaldi, 27, recently went on a date with a 35-year-old man and she was baffled by the text he sent her the next day. “Hey, had fun last night. Have a good day,” the man texted. Then, in true Generation Z fashion, Castaldi took that private message, screenshotted it and posted it online, where it has amassed more than 500,000 views. She added the caption: “I have to...

    Media: Gen Z is DoomedYears after the fact, the mainstream media is discovering that Gen Z is doomed. As CNN puts it, Gen Z is “earning less, has more debt, and higher delinquency rates than Millennials did at their age.”In short, the pandemic did a number on Gen Z, followed by a wallop from Bidenflation, lagging wages, and now a looming recession.How are they surviving? Debt. A new study from Transunion finds that, since 2013, average debt balances for those aged 22 to 24 has risen by 40%, including a 14% rise in auto loans and a 26% rise in...

    The high interest rates and crippling inflation brought to you by President Joe Biden’s disastrous economic policies mean young people are saddled with more credit card debt than previous generations. “Housing inflation has proven to be one of the stickiest components to drive up the cost of living, with rents outpacing salaries in all but six of the top 50 metropolitan areas,” reports Yahoo Finance. “Rising food prices and heavy student loan debt also factor in as young Americans are forced to tighten their belt by reducing expenses to their essentials.” Maybe these idiots should stop moving to metropolitan areas.

    Nearly half of Gen Z voters are sympathetic toward Hamas, and one-third do not believe Israel has the right to exist as a nation, a recent Research survey found. The survey, released on the first day of Passover, showcased the startling difference between the sentiments of all voters and Gen Z voters specifically, those born between 1997 and 2012. The survey asked respondents, “Do you believe that Israel’s wealth and military power make its campaign against Hamas unjust?”
  • Gen-Z is shunning college to take up traditional trades like welding and plumbing they say is far more satisfying and which doesn't incur huge student debt

    Increasing numbers of Generation Z are opting out of college and turning to vocational schools with hopes of higher wages and avoiding student debt, data shows. Young people who came of age during the pandemic said they have been deterred from four-year universities by high tuition and the prospect of student debt. Instead, they are attending trade schools and are being enticed by well-paying job opportunities and satisfying work. The National Student Clearing House recorded a 16 percent increase in enrollment at two-year schools with a 'high vocational program focus' and a 2.6 percent rise in community college enrollment in...

    Companies are struggling to operate as Gen Z enters the workforce at higher rates, and a growing majority of employers say the younger generation is toxic for their business. That's the latest from a new Freedom Economy Index report conducted by PublicSquare and RedBalloon this month. In the survey, 68 percent of small business owners said Gen Zers were the "least reliable" of all their employees. And 71 percent said these younger workers were the most likely to have a workplace mental health issue. One of the surveyed employers spoke of Gen Z's "absolute delusion, complete lack of common sense,...

    A recent study revealed that 42 percent of individuals belonging to Generation Z, born between 1990 and 2010, have been diagnosed with a mental health condition. The prevalent diagnoses include anxiety, depression, ADHD, and PTSD. Furthermore, twenty percent of them have sought therapy, and sixty percent are currently taking medication.
  • Really?! Are 22% of Gen Z LGBTQ+? This is the result of a recent Gallup Poll

    I have a very difficult time believing that this is actually true, mainly because it seems to contradict evolutionary theory. But, according to a Gallup poll, over 22% of Gen Z adults identify as LGBTQ+, and the overall proportion of all adults who do so has more than doubled since 2012. This seems implausible to me, although I do not doubt Gallup's numbers themselves. Almost a quarter of Gen Z adults identify as LGBTQ+— Axios (@axios) March 13, 2024Axios' analysis of the poll is, as is always the case with Axios, short and to the point. 7.6% of adults...

    The percentage of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer adults in the U.S. continues to increase, reaching an all-time high of 7.6% in 2023, according to a new Gallup report. Broken down by gender, the survey of 12,000 people 18 and older across the country found that women were nearly twice as likely as men to identify as LGBTQ. “Almost 30% of Gen Z women identify as LGBTQ+, most as bisexual,” Jeffrey Jones, a senior editor at Gallup, told NBC News. “That’s where a lot of the growth seems to be happening.”

    “Can we keep our sons from conservative politics?” That’s the question writer Kathryn Jezer-Morton posed in a recent column for New York Magazine’s The Cut. “In her son’s case, I wouldn’t bet on it,” New York Times columnist Ross Douthat shot back on X. He’s right. Jezer-Morton is facing an age-old conundrum of parenthood: Kids rebel against their parents’ politics. Except, in 2024, the classic trend is being inverted.

    His Fraudulency Joe Biden’s Monday night appearance with boot-licking sycophant Seth Meyers bombed with younger viewers. Nielsen Media Research, by way of the Washington Examiner, reports that Biden’s appearance “brought in an average of 852,000 viewers and just 181,000 in the [25-54 age] demographic. The figure is 32% less than the same day the year prior.” What’s especially revealing is that Biden delivered a 32 percent drop in 25-54-year-olds for Late Night With Sycophant Seth Meyers, but the “show’s already declining demo viewership for the year [is] down some 10 percent year to date.”

    As the political battle of our generation heats up, surprises abound. Radio icon Charlamagne tha God recently lashed out at Biden, which could hurt the Commander-in-Diapers with black voters. Rep. Rashida Tlaib (Derp-Mich.) recently helped convince roughly 100,000 Great Lake State voters to mark "uncommitted" in Michigan's Democrat primary. If those voters stay home on election Day, Michigan will likely swing back to Trump. Meanwhile, the Israel-Hamas war and nationwide antisemitism are swinging Jewish voters to Trump. Every poll shows Trump clown-slapping Biden in November, and the behind-the-shed switch-beatin' gets even better when independent candidates are thrown into the race....
  • Gen Z Loves Donald Trump More Than Any Other Age Group

    Donald Trump has a higher approval rating among young adults than any other age demographic, according to a poll. A Harvard CAPS–Harris survey of more than 2,000 registered voters showed that 57 percent approved of the job the Republican did as president, with 41 percent saying they disapproved. When the results are broken down further, they show that almost two-thirds (64 percent) of voters in Generation Z—or those aged 18 to 24—approved of Trump's job as president. The age range of this demographic means some respondents were children during Trump's time in office, 2017 to 2021. However, the results could...

    Late last year, Fortune magazine announced a major milestone due in 2024 – the year when Gen Zers will outnumber Baby Boomers in the workplace. This doesn't signal a changing of the guard: according to the story, "Millennials will still reign supreme (even if some of their corporate relics like WeWork and Glossier are losing favor) for the next couple of decades." Boomers, Fortune tells us, dominated the workplace until 2011. Their successors in Gen X only managed to have "a brief time in the sun until 2018" and Millennials took over after that and are expected to dominate the...

    Interesting analysis this morning from Axios in a “Deep Dive: Inside the Mind of Gen Z.” The piece pulls together a bunch of data points and quotes from experts to provide a snapshot of a generation that, at least in my humble opinion, is in deep trouble.Here’s the key data from the Axios analysis: “By the numbers: Gen Z (defined as people roughly ages 12 to 27) reports the poorest mental health of any generation, according to a Gallup and Walton Family Foundation report.“Just 44% of Gen Zers say they feel prepared for the future. “The big picture: They dodged...

    Financial Times ^ | 01/26/2024 | John Burn-Murdoch
    One of the most well-established patterns in measuring public opinion is that every generation tends to move as one in terms of its politics and general ideology. Its members share the same formative experiences, reach life’s big milestones at the same time and intermingle in the same spaces. So how should we make sense of reports that Gen Z is hyper-progressive on certain issues, but surprisingly conservative on others? The answer, in the words of Alice Evans, a visiting fellow at Stanford University and one of the leading researchers on the topic, is that today’s under-thirties are undergoing a great...

    If 30% of the population was gay by birth, they we would see that number in all animals. That we don’t, is proof that homosexuality is not a natural occurrence. The natural occurrence of homosexuality would be a defective mutation that would take that animal’s DNA out of the gene pool. Fun Fact: Did you know they justify promoting homosexuality to children because it will reduce the birthrate and thereby change the weather?
