You can't have a conversation about the utter failure that is the millennial generation without a grandiose and reductive statement that avoids the context of the issues you're discussing.

Millennial Women in the Workplace Subject To 'Unconscious Bias'

When we're not Wikipedia-ing random shit and then immediately talking about said shit like we've known it our whole lives, it seems we Millennials are subject to the same gender disparities in our burgeoning careers as any other age group, only perhaps more so.

We'd Tase our own mothers in order to get our hands on the newest Apple doodad gadgetamabob. We sext Snapchats to the Kardashians. Teen Mom. Um. Occupy Twilight. Buttsex. » 10/22/13 4:30pm 10/22/13 4:30pm

Elizabeth Wurtzel's Rant About Millennials Is Magnificently Incoherent

Elizabeth Wurtzel is pissed at today's youth—which she dubs "the lamest generation"—because they suck at being in their 20s. And she should know, because she's 46. Or something?

A group of 15 self-described "young professionals" in their twenties — the guys work in finance, the girls in fashion — paid $40,000 to party in an East Hampton home this summer.

Breaking: Millennials Still Living with Parents, Still Cool with It

Ah, another day, another trend piece about how basically everybody between the ages of 18 and 34 is an indolent jerk unwilling or unable to fully fledge and leave the parental nest, where things like premium cable and assorted breakfast cereals can be had for the price of awkward mealtime conversations about life… » 8/17/13 1:30pm 8/17/13 1:30pm
